Submission + - MST3K Kickstarter about to break record (kickstarter.com)

the_Bionic_lemming writes: Recently Joel Hodgson, the creator of Mystery Science 3000 that had a successful run of over 197 shows has after 15 years launched a kickstarter to relaunch the series. Previous MST3K Is Kickstarting Back To Life, MST3K Successfully Crowdsources Its Comeback.
In just over two weeks Joel has been wildly successful in not only having over 25000 fans contribute, but actually scoring the second highest show kickstarter on record — he has just under two weeks to shoot past the Number 1 kickstarter, Veronica Mars.

Additionally , Joel had an eight year old girl write in during the long series run , and they did her letter on the air (something the fans loved — having their mail on the air) . A few days ago, Freezepop's Ashley (who was that 8 year old girl) sang a wonderful tribute with Joel for the Kickstarter .

Censorship

Submission + - Good search engines that do not censor? (searchenginewatch.com)

the_Bionic_lemming writes: A friend of mine asked me to help him find some cigars, and I told him to use google shopping to get the best prices. Much to my surprise, the search yielded 0 results.
I then looked around and found an article that talks about google also censoring guns from search results.

Since I haven't done much shopping online, are there any good non censoring web sites left that allow adults to shop and buy things they are legally entitled to buy?

So far all I have is these.
