Who would of thought people would enjoy sequels to long beloved intellectual properties?
Star Wars VII set to make millions? Colour me surprised. Do people really still see games as something 'other' from traditional mainstream entertainment?
Personally I believe the government funded search efforts are less than altruistic. This first occurred to me as I was standing in a park in Perth one night high on LSD when a massive Lockheed AP-3C Orion flew overhead at low altitude. I recognized the craft immediately though I'd never seen one in person, a truly massive american behemoth.
That experience, compounded by news in the local papers that a Chinese destroyer had joined our own Australian naval vessels off shore to assist in the search cemented in my mind that the search for MH370 was really just pretence; an excuse for regional governments in the southern hemisphere to conduct wargames. The amount of fuel alone consumed in the search thus far is astronomically uneconomical, it makes no sense to me otherwise.
This means that the entire Australian internet could be monitored by just one warrant if ASIO wanted to do so, according to experts and digital rights advocates including the Australian Lawyers Alliance, journalist union the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance and Electronic Frontiers Australia. The new anti-terror laws also cover the media, jail-time for those who "recklessly" disclose intelligence information. Under the new laws journalists, bloggers or officials could be jailed for 10 years if caught disclosing restricted material.
