As you all know, the bible is full of liberal bleeding heart stories but until now no one bothered to correct the obvious mistakes in the scripture.

Far be it from god fearing conservatives to doubt the written down words of god - no, the error lies not within god but in the translation of the scripture.

I'm not sure if even a conservative bible will satisfy Glenn Beck, though, since it will likely still include Jesus Christ and hi...

#5 - WE ARE #1 !!! USA! USA! USA!

#6 - Something else gave me a hint.

Keith Olberman's father is hospitalized and was at times suffering so much that he begged for death.

In such cases, hospitals offer counseling interviews on what the options are and how to possibly proceed. The GOP vehemently opposed the very idea that insurance companies should pay for these counseling talks. Also, these counsels inspired the political fiction of "Death Panels".

Olberman now experienced first hand what being denied these talks can mean.

I first thought it was a fraud, but considering that Google, ebay, Walmart and Staples already installed these new fuel cells and run them with profit lends the BloomBox some credibility - as well as the fact that Colin Powell joined the board of directors.

I hope this is true. It could change so much.

Most of you probably heard of google bombing, which e.g. led to the search query "dismal failure" listing the profile page of George W. Bush as top result.

You probably also know the "Related Videos" feature of YouTube, which usually shows a selection of videos to watch which have something in common to the video you're currently watching.

Well, while watching an old SNL clip featuring a parody on Palin/Clinton, i noticed this:

Introducing my current favorite on how developers can skillfully destroy fun that was probably there.

Borderlands

Borderlands is an ego shooter with comic graphics (aka cell shading) and roleplaying-like character development (the diablo-like rpg ... not the D&D-like type).

The game in itself is your standard half-life experience if it wasn't for details like experience points, weapons of the same type with random bonuses ("enchanted" weapons) and an extensive skill system. It's dec...

Greg Palast is a non-partisan investigative reporter who has uncovered many scandals by the corrupt and powerful.

In this documentary he uncovers aspects about the flooding of New Orleans which speak not well of the people that were in charge.

 



 

This week you can download the documentary for free, although I understand that Greg Palast would apreceate a donation. For some reason he doesn't have many corporate sponsors.

Australian finance entrepreneurs created a new product for investors to play with: The Life Settlement Fund

The practice of trading Life Settlements isn't an australian phenomen, though, and it was practiced for years. But it seems like this might become the latest fad among investors.

The idea behind this fund is to buy up life insurance policies from the insured and bundle them into a fund. The potential market volume is estimated to be at around $500 billion.

As far as I understand i...
