I think I speak for everyone when I say: Fuck the RIAA! Damn them to Hell!

The preceding statement was an opinion and in no way reflects negatively on the RIAA, any of its member organizations, Media Sentry, or anyone, anywhere. Please don't sue me. Additionally, no insult was meant to demons, devils, or any denizens of the lower planes. Please don't sue me, either.

Submission + - "Puddles" of Water Sighted on Mars (

eldavojohn writes: "Further reinforcing the theory of a wet Mars, NewScientist is reporting on what appear to be water puddles in newly taken images from the Mars rover. While these results are controversial, the assumption for these blue 'puddles' to be water rely on engineers measuring the uniform smoothness of the surface of them & also in their analysis of apparent opaqueness whereby in some areas they claim to see pebbles underneath the surface of the blue areas. Truly water resisting the temptation to evaporate off the face of Mars or merely an anomaly of stereophotography gone wrong? We'll have to wait and see as the "Face on Mars" has taught us not to trust your eyes when viewing the red planet."

Submission + - Church Of England Vows to Fight Fall Of Man

Oxygen99 writes: The BBC reports that the Church of England is considering legal action against Sony for featuring the inside of Manchester Cathedral in its Playstation 3 game Resistance: Fall Of Man without permission. The Bishop of Manchester says "For a global manufacturer to re-create one of our great cathedrals with photo-realistic quality and then encourage people to have guns battles in the building is beyond belief and highly irresponsible.". This is especially true Given Manchester's record with gun crime. Sony has not yet commented on the story.
