The vicious mocking of Kim is only a result of senseless cultural arrogance.
It's unusual to see such a blatant case of the pot calling the kettle black. North Korea's cultural arrogance just can't seem to comprehend that not everyone thinks as they do about mocking heads of State that do absurdly dumb things.
For some bizarre reason, North Koreans seem to think that worshipping stupidity is a virtue. Idiocy deserves to be derided, and their leadership is chock full of idiots.
Rulings like this are what will kill the internet.
Do you understand the difference between the Internet and the Web? Do you understand that the Internet has far, far more uses than Youtube, and that the latter is a very minor aspect of what makes the Internet useful?
That aside, your statement is grand hyperbole. Even if every insignificant actor in every insignificant film distributed on the Web rose up and successfully demanded the removal of every film, the Internet and the Web would be no less useful than it is now.
I didn't know that American classrooms were a zero-sum game... Is that common?
Many teachers grade on a curve, where the highest grade in the class becomes an "A", and everyone else is graded relative to that "A".
Well, if a crime had been committed....
Even if no *other* crime had been committed, the officers involved should be charged with:
2) Unlawful destruction of private property.
All of which may be possible, and for which the normal protections police enjoy while performing their duties may not apply, because the officer was acting outside the scope of his lawful duties.
Basically, I was wearing a bulletproof vest, but got shot in the leg.
You were wearing the a bulletproof vest produced by the same designer who made the Emperor's new clothes.
The Flu vaccine is no more effective than random chance, but it's a huge money maker for the pharmaceutical industry.
[What if] Stephen Hawking is not who he claims to be through the electronic speaker box?
Sadly, given the stupidity of the Human race (and Kentucky in particular), I believe you have just started a new conspiracy.
But maybe not. Given the same stupidity of the Human race, it's likely that no one lacking enough brain cells to believe such a thing would know who Stephan Hawking is; given that he isn't moving a ball from one part of a grassy field to another.
IANAL but I think this would be slander....
It would be libel. Slander is spoken; Libel is written.
