China hacks 'everything that doesn't move' says Hilary Clinton

Brock Knudsen

We can't stop them, but we can shake our fist at them

As per everything in War, be it with weapons, economy, cyber, espionage etc. If they were able to stop it they wouldn't need to be complaining about it.

Sad fact is that the East is way ahead of the West in cyber warfare, and unlikely to ever let the West catch up.

When China starts setting their policy by the speeches of wannabe presidents I will eat my hat.

Canada passes controversial spook-powers law

Brock Knudsen

Not mentioned is what defines a "threat"

One of the massive problems with the bill is that in an attempt to crackdown on the "terror teaching" jihadist recruitment organizations, it makes illegal any thing that incites protest that can threaten availability of public or private infrastructure. So organizing a protest of a pipeline is a terrorist act and can be hit with the full power of the law. It may say it tackles terrorism, but this government has made a point of lumping environmental groups into that category from minute one that they were elected.

Ding Dong, ALIENS CALLING

Brock Knudsen

Obviously the technology that we have no real understanding of would be completely baffled by something we do understand... Take that stupid aliens!!! and when they do get here they will be completely overwhelmed by the common cold too, because invading aliens would never see that coming... Or they might invade our water planet when they are in fact allergic to it...

Pig plague alert: Avoid missionary position

Works for me

I'm actually surprised that Cosmo didn't publish an article entitled "the 10 H1N1 positions that will drive him Wild..."

Oh and in my circle of friends we prefer the term "Hamthrax" to "Pig Plague"

Feel free to spread the term around.

Debbie Gibson battles Mega Shark and Giant Octopus

Thumb Up

you can tell she's serious

Deborah is obviously getting serious about her film career and shedding her "little girl" pop star alter ego. Now dress her in a trench coat and have her wear glasses... Instant nuclear physicist.

IBM juices dividend (yet again)

Shareholders rake it in due to layoffs

Big bucks for the investors, pink slips for the grunts. I know many people who have been laid off in the last few months from Big Blue. Bet the payback on the Employee stock plan doesn't make up for the lack of job for anyone who is looking for work in this stellar job market.

This war on drugs might work

So this person profited from selling an illegal drug to a minor. A 13 year old is not a legal adult making adult choices.

Civil law in North America has no greater target than those that profit in the harm of others. Canada is not as rabid about this as America but the writing is on the wall.

Really though, seeing as police action is not stopping dangerous drug use why not encourage such things.

It is only by making drugs unprofitable that people will stop producing them.
