Oracle sued over $33,000 bill for SaaS: STRIPPERS as a SERVICE

Andrew Smith 1

How many strippers can you get for $17,000 per night? Or, what will they do for that kind of cash?

The $10 discount seems a bit naff when you're spending that kind of cash!

Senate hears Microsoft and HP avoided billions in US taxes

Tax shouldn't be taxing

Would it be too difficult to just simplify the system?

How hard could it be to have a graph which shows that if you earn this much money you pay this much tax? If company A earns this much cash they pay this much tax? No ifs or buts, cut all these exemptions and just simplify it!

And if you are resident in the country, or have an office in that country you pay tax on the income in that country! MSFT and HP must make tons of cash in the American market, they should be taxed on the US income in the US! Pay Irish tax on income in Ireland, etc etc. All this dodgy Irish arm of MSFT which bought the rights and makes tons of cash in the US is crap, utter crap. If the money was earned in the US it should be taxed in the US.

And if we stop eating the bullshit these companies and certain politicians spout about lowering the tax rate or these companies will just avoid it is crap too! Write the law, if you earn it in the US you pay it in the US!! Then tax all the companies!

Catholic Bishops: 'Would you mind not bringing guns to church?'

Guns and religion combo?

I'd have thought that guns and alcohol were a pretty bad combination, but what about guns and the belief in an afterlife, an all forgiving God and faith??

That is surley a scary combination!

Liverpudlians headbutt Cameron's 'big society'

FAIL

That's the point!

I thought the point of the big society was that the Govt. stopped spending money on services and volunteers would take over. Always seemed like it would fail about 1 week after implementation.

It seems that Liverpool Council have missed the point.

Mohammed

This is a drawing of the guy in my team named Mohammed. Nice guy as he doesn't have some personality complex which sends him insanely angry when someone draws him.
