It is already, and it hasn't even been made.

Lol.

I think they mean crisis talks initiated by the FFA because the police like to try and start riots.

News world-wide is making me seriously depressed.  Genocide as we speak in Libya - now with Milosevic regime Serbian killers for hire flying bomber planes/helicopters.  Violent protests in Bahrain, Yemen, Tunisia amongst other places.  Earthquake in New Zealand ... 65 reported dead figure likely to rise.  Stop the world I want to get off ... please.

This for some comic relief, even if it's tragic.  Another chinese man dies from a gaming binge

It's morbidly impressive how these people manage to game themselves to death.

Freedoms come at the cost of the people who exploit them.  Just as privacy makes it harder to stop criminals, freedom of speech provides a platform for petulance.  Because they don't slander or libel, and they're not on private property, it's unfortunate but necessary to allow.  There isn't a reasonable way to craft a law that would prevent these protests, yet allow the current, legitimate protests in Wisconsin.

However, if you're just exclaiming at the fact that there are actually people who do this, and not the decision, right there with you.

This was a predictable outcome.  If you listen to the oral argument, they were so well within their rights.  (MP3 available at the link below).

Oh, and... I did not click on your link, but based on Yoda's response I assume you are talking about the 8-1 case Snyder V Phelps.

http://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_audio_detail.aspx?argument=09-751

There are certain restrictions placed on free speech, and in this case, they met none of those restrictions. (though clearly they break all laws of common decency).  I'd much rather have the rights the US has over say France, where you go to jail for saying certain kinds of hate speech.

"The proportion of people ages 15 to 24 who say they've had sexual contact has dropped from 78% to 72% in the last decade, interviews show. Experts are uncertain what has prompted the decline.



Apparently, fewer teens and young adults are having sex, according to a federal study that offers numbers but doesn't examine the reasons."

http://www.latimes.com/news/la-na-sex-survey-20110304,0,6393521.story

A couple of thoughts.

+ I think the number is something like 1 in 6 people in the US has some form of herpes.

+ It's funny to think of the inflated numbers on a self-identifiying survey about sex.  How many dudes being asked that question would answer honestly?

+ I went through high-school/ college just as AIDS was getting big and scary.  It was a bummer of a decade, no-one was getting laid.

A British judge grabbed a convicted sex offender by the throat and pinned him to the floor to stop him escaping from court, a trial heard on Tuesday.
