maybe 2000AD had it right

Extreme porn bill gets final reading

Damian Gabriel Moran
Unhappy

to (kind of) quote Bill Hicks

"Here is my final point. About drugs, about alcohol, about pornography and smoking and everything else. What business is it of yours (the governments) what I do, read, buy, see, say, think, who I f***, what I take into my body - as long as I do not (without their consent) harm another human being on this planet!

And for those of you out there who are having a little moral dilemma in your head about this, I'll answer it for you. It's none of your f****** business!"

BT's secret Phorm trials open door to corporate eavesdropping

Damian Gabriel Moran
Unhappy

so I can set myself up as a business

and then intercept people's web traffic and the government/authorities will not do a thing? Sweet!

But hang on, wasn't there a bit of a fight to hear what MP's are claiming on expenses and yet my spending habits can be up for grabs without my consent?

Funny how it seems to be okay for one and not another

@glyn

"Not saying that being gay is the same as being a paedophile, but it's the closest equivalent"

i know a few gay people that would not take kindly to that kind of thinking

The Baying of the Hounds

Damian Gabriel Moran
Happy

so if the myth is to be believed

anyone with large denomination bank notes will be sniffed and snarled at

as the wise Mr Hicks used to say...

“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem a little unnatural? To make marijuana against the law is like saying God made a mistake. You know what I mean? It’s like God, on the seventh day, looking down on his creation:

‘There it is, my creation, perfect and holy in all ways. Now, I can rest …’

Oh my me! I left f*cking pot everywhere. I never should have smoked that joint on the third day. Sh*t. That was the day I created possums. If I leave pot everywhere, that’s going to give humans the impression they’re supposed to use it. Now I have to create Republicans!”

BT and Phorm secretly tracked 18,000 customers in 2006

Damian Gabriel Moran

not being a legal bod...

can BT customers demand to know (via freedom of information?) if they were within the trial that was not a trial but actually was and if they were can they then take legal action against BT and Phorm using RIPA as their consent was not given?

How Phorm plans to tap your internet connection

Damian Gabriel Moran

back again

I wonder if Virgin Media's cock up a few months back when a lot of us were left without internet access for about a day has anything to do with this. Before the blackout I used to get 4 or 5 items of spam in my inbox per day, it now averages about 150

oh no I have become a conspiracy theorist!

i am attempting to leave virgin right now

funnily enough i have been listening to the loud holding music and the repeated "Please continue to hold the line and your call..." message for 25 minutes now. A reflection of people leaving or merely a tacic to p*ss off people wishing to quit so they hang up and put it off for another time?

I am looking forward to the sales numpty as I imagine they will not have a clue what i am talking about when i mention Phorm

Vote now for your fave sci-fi movie quote

Damian Gabriel Moran

okay back again

Ghostbusters 2 has to be summed up with

"Next week on world of the psychic, hairless pets. Weird"

Starship Troopers got my vote, just because "They sucked his brains out" has a cheese factor of 10

hang on

if we are going to want a Time Bandits quote then surely it should be...

"God isn't interested in technology. He cares nothing for the microchip or the silicon revolution. Look how he spends his time, forty-three species of parrots! Nipples for men!"

however, for that ultimate sci-fi quote you cannot go wrong with Split Second

Dick Durkin: We need to get bigger guns. BIG F*CKING GUNS!

Dick Durkin: I don't think this thing thinks it's Satan, I think this thing IS Satan.

Stone: Well Satan is in deep shit.

Damian Gabriel Moran

the real paradox being...

when are they going to come up with something new instead of rehashing the same things over and over

I am waiting for Hollywood to start looking at childrens tv from the uk circa 1970's I can see it now

"He was a cat on the edge, and only Emily loved him. Bagpuss the Movie!"

or perhaps "Pirates of the Caribbean 4 - Pugwash"

Public don't want internet filters, MS tells MPs

Damian Gabriel Moran
Unhappy

will cars be next?

because they are dangerous in the wrong hands and yet we do not ban people from using them until after they have harmed another, and yet where is the government investigation to decide whether or not to ban everyone from driving just because some people are irresponsible?

everyday I am reminded of how crappy it seems to be in this country. I look forward to my departure

More videogames to face censor scrutiny

Damian Gabriel Moran
Coat

what next

Government to ban sticks because children with an imagination might pick one up and go "pow pow pow" in mimicry of a gun? ***i know most children do not say pow pow pow but you try typing that eh-huh-huh-huh-huh-huh sound they do make and not look like a script for beavis and butt-head***

Perhaps I should dig out my old yo-yo and use it for its invented purpose, will they ban them then? I bit my tongue once when chewing gum, will that be next on the list?

I remember the hoo-hah about video nasties back in the late 70's / 80's and as a youngster back then I was of the opinion that it is not the images that are seen but the person watching them that is the problem and I think the same now with video games (amongst other things)

In an attempt to finish on a lighter note, I think issues like this should be settled with a good old fashioned Counter Strike match, us against the namby-pambies and the winner gets to decide policy

who do america view as a naval threat these days? Does China have a fleet of subs? North Korea? I thought Russia was an ally now, and their silent catepillar drive was detectable way back in 1984! ;-)
