No. The "funny" part will be if he surrenders to the Brits, who hand him over to the USG rather than Sweden. Thus proving the rape allegations were a farce, a mere pretext to get him arrested and extradited to the United States.

Maybe you missed it the first time: there is no US extradition request for Julian Assange.

Your Assange fanfic could be a little more believable. Keep working on it.

"Earlier this month, WikiLeaks said it would agree to a US extradition request for the site's founder, Julian Assange, if Obama granted clemency to Manning. It was not immediately clear if WikiLeaks would make good on its promise."

The funny part is that there has been no US extradition request for Julian Assange. So basically, he didn't offer anything. It was just a way to keep his name in the news.

Jimmy Iovine was one of the most powerful record executives during the period when record labels were all sleeping on the digital revolution that was about to overtake them.

The judge made a ruling based on the law. The law is on the side of the casinos. Yet another of many ways that the casino stacks the deck against you.

Of course casinos always win. Nobody with a casino loses money, unless they're really clueless or trying to cheat more powerful players.

I mean, can anyone think of someone so stupid and/or crooked that they lost money owning a casino?
