Comment I see I see.... (Score 1) 157

"I see! I see!!" said the blind man, but everyone knew he was full of shit.

Until now when he CAN actually say it and follow it up with high fives to everyone.

Every time I get cranky about all the dumb shit that we do in this day and age, I also think about all the cool and fantastic things we can do. It's a funny balance.

Comment Re:Even a swimwear merchant app that sold bikinis (Score 1) 492

I'm wondering why it's possible to order the bottom of the bikini w/o the top? What good's a swimsuit with no top?

The reason for this is so that people have to buy the top and bottom separately. This way they can overcharge women twice. I don't know if you've ever noticed, but womens' bathing suites can be incredibly expensive.

Submission + - General Strike Called For 9/11/2007 In U.S.

cybermage writes: Organizers around the U.S. are working to coordinate a General Strike for 9/11/2007. Their reasoning is as follows: "Since the tragic events of 9/11/01, America has fallen under a spell of fear and deception. The government peddles lies and steadily chips away at our democratic rights. Hundreds of thousands have been killed in the Iraq war — mostly civilians. Torture, surveillance, tyranny, empire. Many of us can recognize the fascistic direction of this government. But what do we do?"
