Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet. They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.
Scientists have shown how flesh-eating parasites responsible for the disfiguring tropical disease leishmaniasis dupe the immune system.
The parasites produce a gel which the latest study shows can fool specialised immune cells into feeding rather than killing them.

This gives me serious freak-out shivers. Seriously awful video footage of a remote cam plumbing the plumbing of a North Carolina sewer. And then it happens on a few slimy, pulsating creatures that might be fresh water byrozoas, CHUD eggs or an early viral marketing meme.
From the same folks that changed SciFi to SyFy, a clip from Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus.
"Water content by weight ranged from 37.7% to 62.4% (mean, 49%). Meat content in the hamburgers ranged from 2.1% to 14.8% (median, 12.1%). The cost per gram of hamburger ranged from $0.02 to $0.16 (median, $0.03) and did not correlate with meat content. Electron microscopy showed relatively preserved skeletal muscle."
"When the sharp pain shooting through Lisa Strong's back got worse, she thought it was another kidney stone and expected the discomfort to pass. This time was different. Through a series of mistakes, miscommunications and misdiagnoses, she wound up having her arms and legs amputated. She sued the doctors, who essentially blamed one another for what everyone involved agrees were profound errors. Everyone except the jury that ruled against Strong." http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30999530/
"There will be virtually nothing left to fish from the seas by the middle of the century if current trends continue, according to a major scientific study. Stocks have collapsed in nearly one-third of sea fisheries, and the rate of decline is accelerating."
A cockbib is exactly what it sounds like. A 'bib' to assist in clean-up after a trip 'downtown'. But where a lobster bib is really for the diner more than the lobster, the cockbib is much more geared towards the knob and not the knobster. A clean-freak invented the cockbib so men won't have to do anything advanced like have a wet wash cloth nearby or get up and maybe take a shower after a deed has been done. I think everyone would agree that given how amazing sex of all kinds and configuration feels, the post-afterglow feeling of 'I need a rinse' is universal. Luckily the cockbib is here to help. The Jeze-gals took the Cockbibs Coalition to task to hilarious effect.
"A 23-year-old Auckland mother who lost 45kg in eight months by drinking nothing but energy drink Red Bull says she has ongoing health problems because of the diet. Brooke Robertson told the Herald on Sunday she shrank from 105kg to 60kg drinking nothing but 10 to 14 cans a day, often accompanying them with nothing more than a handful of dry Honey Puffs."
8 puppies are brought to the house of a sociopathic middle class family. They eliminate one dog a week until they have their favorite. The 'loser' dogs are given to other families.

"Besides the fact that the whole thing seems to have been dipped in Pepto Bismol and that it includes its own super sleek carrying case, Ouija For Girls comes with suggested questions. Why? Well, apparently girls can't be trusted to ask the right questions of the demons and spirits surrounding them at all times." [link]

It's not a holy war. It's not a crusade. What's that Bible quote doing on there?
What a dick:
"I’m a guy who doesn’t see anything good having come from the Internet,” said Sony Pictures Entertainment chief executive officer Michael Lynton. “Period.” He complained the Internet has “created this notion that anyone can have whatever they want at any given time. It’s as if the stores on Madison Avenue were open 24 hours a day. They feel entitled. They say, ‘Give it to me now,’ and if you don’t give it to them for free, they’ll steal it"
And you feel entitled to cripple the entire technology industry to ensure your dinosaur distribution model is obeyed.

I know I'm a commie because I don't think any part of the human genome should be patented. Further I don't think any naturally occurring plants or animals should be patented.
"Knowledge about our own bodies and the ability to make decisions about our health care are some of our most personal and fundamental rights," said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. "The government should not be granting private entities control over something as personal and basic to who we are as our genes."
The lawsuit also challenges genetic patenting in general, noting that about 20 percent of all human genes are patented -- including genes associated with Alzheimer's disease, muscular dystrophy and asthma.
"It is absolutely our intent that upon victory this will rend invalid patents on many other genes," said Dan Ravicher, executive director of the Public Patent Foundation and a patent law professor at Yeshiva University's Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. "We just had to pick one case as our case."
Put it this way: when part of your body is rotting away do you trust the free market to cure you?
"A TAIWAN carpenter bought a porn DVD only to find secretly taped motel footage of his wife having sex with his friend, whom the husband later stabbed. The husband, identified only by his surname Lee, discovered the illicit sex on the DVD in 2002. The sexual acts apparently had been recorded using a hidden camera and were on a pornographic DVD, titled Affairs with Others' Wives, which the husband bought from a vendor to watch at home."
