The soldiers and police at checkpoints does sound a little too familiar... Now, I know this problem isn't unique to democracy, but there has to be a way to turn the tables and put some more scrutiny on those who are supposed to be serving *us*

You know what they say anyway, "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all of the others that have been tried so far"

Yup, tires and tubes are the most frustrating part of any bike, but is it worth the tradeoff of a smooth ride? Probably not, but an interesting and nice design nonetheless!

Ah, the virus, unsung hero of evolution! If you want to transfer & change DNA quickly, the fastest way to do so is with a persistent viral infection. Now we just have to figure out how to program this human legacy code we're working with..

Wow, am I the only one who got an 8-bit flashback and enjoyed the exterior design? Like a big messed up Tetris board flipped on its side! I guess it is all a bit much but the interior definitely looks like a very exciting place to be..

Yup I just invested in my first mobi domain because it was a perfect 4 word keyword and I've been sold on this QR codes. People with smart phones have some disposable income available, so all I have to do is get that visual "link" out there in a place where they're thinking about the product. This is all kind of in the thinking and planning stage right now, so I can't say if it will actually work or not but I'm pretty excited about the possibilities!

Good stuff - definitely took an extra while to realize that the pranking started a little earlier than usual. Unfortunately, it might have been just a little bit too believable since it seems like this kind of stuff happens all too often!

I don't know if I'm getting used to it or if they're finally responding to our complaints and toning down the airport harassment - but flying last week was actually rather easy and convenient. We scheduled so much unnecessary time for security that we ended up spending too much money in the airport bars!

By the way, thanks for keeping a Jax chapter of the 10AC active! I didn't even know it existed, but now I'm wondering if there are any meetings or events or other ways to get involved?

Awesome! More indisputable proof that ninjas are inherently superior.

I expected this kind of junk from the KOS, but I was amazed at how quickly it spread and how many people jumped on this non-existent story. Thanks for posting the pictures that don't fit their slash & burn agenda.

I'm still shocked that the supposedly enlightened left would see a teenager's belly fat and a disabled baby as political fodder. Just kidding - that's exactly the kind of stuff I've come to expect. Don't say anything about Edwards though, if he cheats on his dying wife that's his own business!

Well, if they manage to create oil shortages (and as demonstrated, the price-fixing proposals would only create shortages) we'll have no choice but to accept massive subsidies for non-competitive 'alternative' energy! The ones who want to nationalize today seem to be the same ones complaining a few years ago that "cheap gasoline" was destroying the planet.
