    @ Steve Toase

    Is it wrong that the only thing I can think of is the bit from Transmetropolitan with the astronauts confessing that they smoked Timothy Leary's ashes?

    I like how they warn that people shouldn't take the capsules because it could have dangerous bacteria in it. Not ya know, because it contains HUMAN BABY FLESH.

    Yeah, I want my baby spit-roasted not dried and in pill form.

    @AtomicSloth I had the same thought.

    Well, in his defence, if this was true, how damn good must a $200 an hour massage be if it doesn't involve getting some?

    Next time someone e-mailed you about how Prince Philip runs the world's heroin trade and wants to exterminate 90% of the world's popualtion you want lazytruth.

    LazyTruth works by searching through your received messages, looking for specific phrases associated with some of the most common viral emails that make bogus claims. When it finds one, it composes an email rebuttal, which includes links to sources that refute the content of the offending message. Those sources include fact-checking and/or urban myth websites such as PolitiFact and FactCheck.org.

    Instead of having to perform some Googling and then figuring out what to say, all you have to do is send the provided message – be aware, however, that the recipients might not appreciate your attempt at enlightening them. In any case, even if you don’t act on the information it provides, LazyTruth could still at least serve to alert you to the untruth of viral emails that you might otherwise be tempted to believe.


    (The real truth is Phil is too lazy and stupid to run anything competently and only wants to kill all the non-whites excluding the more attractive young women.)

    "There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready."

    Against Me! singer Tom Gabel comes out as transgender.



    The Wall Street Journal coverage of the same thing says "Against Me! is best known for the song "Thrash Unreal."" which I found too sad/funny not to post.

    The timing could not be more politik, but for whatever the reason, President Obama just endorsed gay marriage.

    Cool, Mr. President. Very cool.

    Vidal Sassoon has died

    While best known as a hairdresser, what's less well known is that in the years immediately after the last world war he was an active member of the 43 Group, a Jewish organisation in London that confronted Oswald Mosley's fascists in the streets, breaking up their meetings, and effectively destroying Mosley's rapidly growing power base in the post-war years.

    Another genius move: let's annoy people who actually bought the damn films with some more guilt tripping with unskippable ads! Brilliant!

    Oh, those government warnings that appear at the start of every DVD and Blu-ray disc are so wonderful. Which is why we should all be extremely happy that there are going to be more, and they're going to last longer!"

    In the UK they changed those last year from 'don't pirate stuff you scum' to 'thank you for buying this'.

    Made a nice change.
