Submission + - United States most heavily armed nation on Earth! (reuters.com)

Loosifur writes: According to Reuters, "the United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens, making it the most heavily armed society in the world..." The article continues to note that over half of the firearms manufactured worldwide are made in the good ol' US of A as well. Compare this to the rest of the world taken as a whole where the average is about 1 for every 10.

Submission + - Wal-Mart selling DRM-free music downloads. (washingtonpost.com)

Loosifur writes: Washingtonpost.com reports that, in a stunning, distinctly un-Wal-Mart like move, Wal-Mart has announced its decision to begin selling plain ol' MP3s from its website, either by the song or by the album. In a related story, snowballs have begun flocking to Hell to try their luck.
