Laindraug writes: "The 'Le Devoir' French canadian Montreal Newspaper had a front page title today ( november 8) that said (once traduced) : 'Pirates can sleep well' : RCMP'S is abandoning the fight against music piracy because 'its just too big to fight against' ` The newspaper also shows the difference between Canada and USA, stating that in october, Jammie Thomas in USA was condemned to a 220 000$ dollar fine for having downloaded 24 mp3's..and in Canada, there will just be no more police to look at this kind of piracy. 'Today, its so simple to copy, everybody is clueless on how to fight this' , as stated by Canadian RCMP's. Canadian Pirates, rejoice."
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Mum Sends Stripper to Teenage Son's School (

angryphase writes: According to recent reports one young Nottinghamshire schoolboy got a present to remember from his mother of all people. According to the parent in question there had been some misunderstanding by the agency, after she claims she had ordered a gorilla. A shaken and slightly stirred witness recounts, 'No one could believe it [...] she ordered him to get on all fours, led him around the classroom and hit him 16 times — once for each year — on the bottom with her whip. Then she took off some clothes until she was down to her bra and pants, pulled out some cream, put it on her buttocks and told him to rub it in.' As if this brazen overuse of props wasn't bad enough, the mother had requested that the teacher film the 'surprise'.

Anything cut to length will be too short.
