Come & Gone

Boob quake 2010 has, more or less, and the only earthquake of significant magnitude was a 6.5  off the Coast of Taiwan.  Had to goto the USGS site to find it, so I assume it didn't do much.


Can you tell I like my newest shotgun?

A cause I can get behind

Although apparently news didn't make it around campus (sadly).  Today is "Boobquake," an event purely to annoy backwards Islamic Clerics*.  We should make it an annual event, if not a monthly one.

*I have nothing against Islamic Clerics as a whole, just backwards rights suppressing ones, especially if they speak out against one(two?) of my favorite things.


Chicago's murder rate so high lawmakers call for the Governor to deploy the National Guard.  Funny how some of the highest violent crime locations have the most stringent gun laws.

I don't think it's answer either, National Guard soldiers don't train for domestic law enforcement, and unleashing a death blossom in downtown Chicago would probably be frowned upon.  (I'm not saying that Nat. Guardsmen are loose cannons, hell, I am one, but it's hard to override certain learned responses...)  But really, I don't see how imposing borderline martial law on the city would help fight crime rates.

Maybe they just need to hurry up the court decision and allow the law abiding citizens of Chicago to defend themselves and take their town back... crazy talk, I know.

(ETA: at least the police agree about the "Guard Solution" (H/T Say Uncle)
