Maybe there is a similar app available in Cydia for Jailbroken iPhones?

I do know of him and your comment inspired me to do a little Internet searching which quickly led me to this: http://www.upworthy.com/neil-d...
Except for the part about having too much gore, I completely disagree with you. It does falter a bit when it tries to switch between comedy and action modes as the plot to kill Kim Jong Un unravels. But it still works well as a satire of our celebrity obsessed media culture.
James Franco plays his character perfectly. (Granted his character is the sort of smug, smarmy asshole which is not a huge stretch from Franco's current media image.) Kim is more than just a caricature here. He is portrayed as a charismatic master manipulator with breathtaking daddy issues. A lot of the movie looks cheap and fake but even that very fakeness starts to make sense when you see just how far Kim is willing to go to make his "worker's paradise" seem real.
So while this movie may not work for film aficionados who only like the kind cinematic masterpieces put out the Herzogs, Kurosawas, and Michael Bays of this world it is funny and watchable. Obviously if Seth Rogan and James Franco give you a huge hate boner, this is not the film for you. But if you usually like their work, you'll enjoy this movie too.
These people are already part of the workforce and are already competing for low wage jobs (in some sectors like agriculture, they are only competing against each other because American citizens don't do those jobs). If anything this change in immigration law takes away some of the leverage that employers could traditionally use against these people.
Does the ESA use RTGs in its missions? The impression I got from TFA is that it doesn't.
Dead Like Me. A girl is killed by a toilet seat from the deorbiting space station. She became a grim reaper because that's what happens to people who aren't ready to "move on" in that show's universe. I think it lasted three seasons.
So it was never about ethics in journalism? It was about Obama with gaming journalism as a metaphor for health care reform? OK.
Except that it's not a rich dude blowing $100k of his own money, at least not yet. It's two "ordinary" people risking their lives so rich people won’t have to. It's a little like crashing a luxury car with real, living human beings instead of crash test dummies. I'm exaggerating for effect here because that was basically TFA's argument, that this is going to be a thrill ride for the rich and not a way to explore space so why are people dying?
But as TFA also points out, a lot of worthwhile endeavors start out with less than laudable goals. The Apollo program started as a way to win a pissing contest with the Russians. It's possible that a space tourism industry might turn out to be a training ground where the astronauts who will explore Mars develop and hone their skills.
I suppose that causation could work both ways. In my experience some atheists can be just as close-minded and judgemental as some religious fanatics. So anything that helps either group think about their beliefs and why they hold those beliefs is ultimately a good thing.
In fact this sounds a lot like the Harvard grads only dating site the Winklevoss twins claimed that Mark Zuckerberg stole from them and and turned into Facebook. I wouldn't be surprised if this website also fails and turns into a footnote in some other tech billionaire's life story.
While I suppose that this kind of attitude, if indeed she does think this way, would make her a terrible Secretary of Labor or Commerce, the office of CTO of the United States would require a different way of thinking than other departments of the Executive Branch. Presumably her job, if she gets it, would require her to apply technology to policy problems. If that is the case, then somebody "brought up in the culture of Google solutionism" would be perfect for a position like this one.
A less polite person might suggest that the parent comment meant to use "phallacy" as a synonym for "dickheadedness" which may not technically be a word but let's face it, we've all had days when we wished that it was one.
You seem to be filled with paranoia, an easy sense of outrage, and distrust of all media. Are you by any chance a news pundit?
Vader was Luke and Leia's father and embittered by years of service to the emperor. He deliberately hired incompetent engineers and starship captains in hopes that his children would be able to fix his mistakes and help him kill the emperor.
