Submission + - Sarah Palin backs North Korea (huffingtonpost.com)

zcomuto writes: Not quite. In a verbal faux pas, Sarah Palin recently decided that North Korea was an ally worth standing up next to. She doesn't seem to get the pair of the Korea's mixed up, it does seem to simply be a verbal mishap. She does, infact, condemn North Korea's recent behaviour and encourages China to act upon the situation, and treats the behaviour of the country like that of an indisciplined child: "We don't reward bad behaviour, and we don't walk away from it"

Journal Journal: Rumor: 500 Kin Phones 9

When Microsoft's Kin was released a month ago, it came with the usual sequence of tittilating leaks (project Pink), a swell of coverage leading to liveblogging of the release press conference, and an advertising blitz impressive in its scope. Since it's supposed to be a social phone of course it has numerous fansites including Facebook and Twitter. Of course there's a Wikipe

Comment And for those who don't get the Joe Pesci referenc (Score 5, Informative) 583

And here's something else, another problem you might have: Suppose your prayers aren't answered. What do you say? "Well, it's God's will." "Thy Will Be Done." Fine, but if it's God's will, and He's going to do what He wants to anyway, why the fuck bother praying in the first place? Seems like a big waste of time to me! Couldn't you just skip the praying part and go right to His Will? It's all very confusing.

So to get around a lot of this, I decided to worship the sun. But, as I said, I don't pray to the sun. You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci. Two reasons: First of all, I think he's a good actor, okay? To me, that counts. Second, he looks like a guy who can get things done. Joe Pesci doesn't fuck around. In fact, Joe Pesci came through on a couple of things that God was having trouble with.

For years I asked God to do something about my noisy neighbor with the barking dog, Joe Pesci straightened that cocksucker out with one visit. It's amazing what you can accomplish with a simple baseball bat.

So I've been praying to Joe for about a year now. And I noticed something. I noticed that all the prayers I used to offer to God, and all the prayers I now offer to Joe Pesci, are being answered at about the same 50% rate. Half the time I get what I want, half the time I don't. Same as God, 50-50. Same as the four-leaf clover and the horseshoe, the wishing well and the rabbit's foot, same as the Mojo Man, same as the Voodoo Lady who tells you your fortune by squeezing the goat's testicles, it's all the same: 50-50. So just pick your superstition, sit back, make a wish, and enjoy yourself.

Ecuadorian Anonymous Coward writes: "Ecuador Tax Agency (SRI) Closes Microsoft Branch Offices For 7 Days. "We have twice requested balances, payment reports and complete tax information, but the company hasn't given it to us, so in accordance with our laws we have proceeded with the closure," the SRI official in charge of the proceeding said. Microsoft said it was a Human Mistake (since their software never fails ;)"
