More Unnecessary Problems from FACE BOOK.

Trinity Bates needs justice, not the law of the Facebook mob. By Sarrah Le Marquand From: The Daily Telegraph February 27, 2010.
My favourite Newspaper delivered daily to my door.

TO stay relevant, you must move with the times. And it seems the vigilantes among us have done just that as community outrage to the man suspected of murdering eight-year-old Trinity Bates spilled on to social networking websites this week.
Fuelled by vitriol and a thirst for vengeance, the proliferation of so-called "hate pages" on sites such as Face book confirmed vigilantism is alive and well.

The pitchfork-wielding march may have been replaced with more technologically sophisticated tactics but the underlying sentiment remains the same.

Within hours of a family friend being charged over the young girl's murder, various pages and online groups were clamouring for the execution of the suspect.

One of the sites reportedly alerted fellow users to the street address of people bearing the same surname as the accused. One can only imagine the motivation behind disclosing that information.

With the mood in pockets of Bundaberg threatening to lurch from saddened and confused to angry and vengeful, police urged people to keep emotions in check.

"The community has been greatly impacted," acknowledged Queensland Detective Superintendent Maurice Carless. "But in terms of taking action on that, I think it's prudent to let the course of justice take its course."

The hijacking of online memorials initially set up for Trinity, only to become overrun with mob rage, even prompted Queensland Premier Anna Bligh to call Face book management to account over their monitoring of such material.

Ironically, the existence of these hate sites can in fact impede the wheels of justice from turning as efficiently as they might.

It is these very Face book pages which may jeopardise future criminal proceedings if and when Trinity's killer goes to trial.

Experts claim a social networking onslaught of this nature could give a defendant grounds to argue they have been denied a fair trial due to the disclosure of personal information.

Beyond the knowledge that vigilante activity might damage future legal proceedings is the less tangible but no less important debate over how we respond in the face of evil.

The abduction and murder of Trinity was an unforgivable, callous crime.

To take the life of a defenceless child is as shocking to us as it is senseless and the anguish her family is enduring must be beyond words.

But how we as a society choose to express our outrage over this cowardly act has nothing to do with the person who took her life and everything to do with us.

As understandable as it is to want to vent our anger over such a crime, public outpourings of rage simply make for an ugly spectacle of another kind.

At its worst it creates a cycle of attack and counter-attack, teaching our children that the darkest side of human nature is sometimes acceptable so long as you're chasing down the "bad guys".

But the line between heroes and villains isn't always clearly defined.

Unleashing anger on those who we perceive to have wronged us can all too easily corrupt even the best of the "good guys".

Things are never as clear as in the take-the-law-into-their-own-hands movies, no matter what the likes of Dirty Harry and The Dark Knight would have us believe.

Even for the most conciliatory of souls, it's not always easy to leave matters in the hands of the powers that be.

I'd hazard a guess it gets pretty lonely on the high road. Maybe they should make a few movies about the heroes who have ventured down that particular highway.

It's in the face of crimes such as Trinity's murder that we are faced with a choice.

Do we sink to the level of the perpetrator in baying for blood and hurling abuse, or do we allow the police and judicial system to operate without obstruction?

Do we somehow make this senseless murder all about us and our anger, or do we step back and allow the family to grieve in private and with dignity?

Do we use this brutal crime as an excuse to whip up hatred and incite more violence? Or do we refuse to take the bait and decide to respect the victim and her family by refusing to give in to rage?

It might not have the instant feel-good appeal of vigilantism and it is certainly a much less popular option but it could just be that showing some restraint and refusing to be consumed with hate in the wake of this horrific crime is the most effective way of honouring the memory of Trinity Bates.

Facebook Outrage. From Italy's politicians.

Italian Politicians and Internet activists worldwide, condemn The use of Face book.
The so called social network Face book is currently being used for Antisocial Purposes.
Authorities have denounced a page on the social networking site Face book that calls for children with down syndrome to be used as target practice.
Police are trying to track down who set up the page, which features a down syndrome baby with the word 'Idiot" superimposed on it, and by it had attracted several thousand members.
The page proposed what it said was "An easy and amusing solution" to get rid of "These foul creatures" - use them as targets at shooting centres.
This sort of usage on Face book is unacceptable, and without doubt will encourage users with half a brain to promote more insidious activities.

A Different sort of Plumbing

More revelations will unfold after tomorrows visit to the vascular surgeon. His request to see me follows my recent Peripheral arterial blood flow assessment.???Worry-worry. Ah well, coupled with that malady will be the findings of my visit next Monday to the tom tiddle doc for an assessment on my prostate; down in the nether regions, there has been some noteworthy discrepancies in the lower plumbing since that wretched drainpipe was inserted for use during and after my last Op 18-12-08. However, I feel OK and I'm not a-going yet. so there is no need to polish up your eulogies.
Today started off similar to the past couple of days 'Bloody HOT' with little respite but the air con lounge, we decided quite early today an absolutely minimal of unnecessary movement was on the cards until much to our surprise a Southerly (From the Antarctic) popped up about Midday giving me access to my office (Spare Bedroom)which is on the west wall in which the temp peaked around 48C yesterday. however, I am sitting without the fan on and a cool breeze rustling the curtains(Drapes) temp is now 23C and cool, although it may not register the same sort of Cool you unfortunate beings in the Nth-Hemisphere are experiencing.
As I said to my Aussie mate who got a gold card for serving overseas for three months and not coming in contact with the enemy (During WW2). I have to pay through the nose to get my problems fixed in a hurry or wait months & months. the docs here get top dollar for fixing Oz Born and bred vets over 70 or incapacitated. Unfortunately I am a second class AUS Cit, although I served in the Pacific during WW2 operating from Australia.
SALT in the Wounds...It is known that WW2 German Army servicemen emigrated to Australia in the late forties and became citizens after two years and the joined the Australian Army and served with Aus forces for up to a six month period during the Korean War 1950-1954.
Yes the same blokes who fought against us get a ^*#(#)^8 G gold card.
I have to get to bed early tonight for an early start tomorrow. I'll give you more news later. ta for now, Vest.

Has Cricket got your wicket, any questions.

Has CRICKET Got your WICKET, An explanation of the rules of cricket to the people of North America.
You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in goes out, and when he is out he comes in and the next man goes in until he is out. When one side are all out, the side that's been out comes in and the side that has been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man goes out and goes in.
There are two men called umpires who are all out all the time, and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice, after the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.
The general rules of actual play are saturated with a glossary of terms and conditions with sub rules, with the prefixes 'Unless, depending, benefit of doubt, and other Misc Claptrap, every morsel of important cricket goings on is recorded in WISDEN a sacred hard to get book with more info on cricket than Brittanica, from the time the first ball was bowled in Hambledon Hampshire England in the early 19th century . There is more to read in Wisden than the 'Holy Bible' or the 'SevenPillars of WISDOM'.

Ok you Skinnies. here is your chance to become Obese like your Fat Friends.

Ok you Skinnies. Here's your chance to become Obese like your fat friends

I expect you remember the standard make up of the school kid gangs, one tall, three average size and one fat boy with spectacles. During recent years the order of things have changed to three four eyed fatties a stunted ginger head skinny.and a very fat girl, who is usually called tweety or laura for some odd reason.
So if you are a skinny and wish to move outwards to the fat trendy status, here is the best way to start.
In the School Canteen or in the lunch box mummy has prepared for you is the catalyst for expansion and the means to short circuit your life span. Start right now consuming heaps of Trans Fats which is found in a variety of foodstuffs notably those in a list shortly to follow, this will get you a proud pork belly in little or no time. Why? Because this crap you eat tastes delicious and is addictive because of that.
Mothers, whack some in your child's lunch pack, your skinny kid will love it and become a fat and happy rotund little blob in the wink of an eye.
Trans Fats are a deadly poison found on most supermarket shelves, even small doses are harmful, Trans fats are made synthetically in a process called Hydrogenisation. The changed fats extend the shelf life of cooking oil and improves the appearance and texture of baked food such as scones, muffins and cakes .
If a total ban is imposed, major food outlets will feel the impact most, also the fast food chain stores like McDonald's , KFC, Wendy's and Dunkin' Donuts.
So mums and dads keep your eyes peeled for this trans fats thingy if you want to stay thin, look for items which display the sign 'No Trans Fats, anything else has usually got this Trans fat crap. These are a few items you could avoid like the plague.

Margarine spreads and shortening.
Deep Fried Foods.
Frozen foods, including sweet pastries, sausage rolls, pies and fish fingers.
Pastries, donuts, muffins and cakes.
Biscuits, cookies and instant noodles.
Crackers, chips and crisps.
Confectionery,lollies-Candy and Chocolate, cereal bars and slices.
Cake mixes, dips, sauces and Chocolate spreads.

Ignore this warning and you may become only useful as a professional Santa Claus or a fat Tweety or Laura Claus.

Chemistry mid term

The following is an actual question given on University of Washington
Chemistry mid term.

The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it
With colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have
The pleasure of enjoying it as well :

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic
(absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law
(gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some
Variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we
Need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate
At which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once
A soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.
As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different
Religions that exist in the world today.

Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their
Religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these
Religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we
Can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as
They are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase
Exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell
Because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and
Pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand
Proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls
Enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase
Until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in
Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes
Over..

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year
That, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and take
Into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two
Must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already
Frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen
Over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is
Therefore, extinct......leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the
Existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept
Shouting 'Oh my God.'

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+.

NEIGHBOURS. What are your 's like?

At last. After repeatedly communicating with the local council also the police and council Ranger over the past few months, the seemingly resident 40ft ten ton truck plus more recently a 55ft twenty ton truck & trailer have been ordered from our suburban street. The process started about a month after our next door neighbour parked a 'Energy Australia' ten ton truck on the road repeatedly nullifying the beauty of our leafy avenue plus in all up to seven cars-Utes were either in their driveway - on the road or in our frontage and the nature strip.
It was one morning when I saw a large utility being driven across our frontage and exiting our driveway I decided we had - had enough, plus I was pissed off about 'Energy Australia' and their 25% hike on our power bills. The amazon truck driving lady from next door was caught on film red handed, I called out to her but her upward pointing finger showed her total disregard. that was the only recorded occasion we have spoken to our neighbour except for the occasion on their arrival when we said hello and they showed complete disinterest.
The crux came when the highway patrol called Wed - Thurs during the night and issued infringement notices and ordered them to move.
It is far removed from the previous four years of peace and quiet when the two dear old souls who lived there - now departed - hardly raised even a mite of interest except for the two occasions the undertakers called.

"The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it".

Have a peaceful weekekend, Vest.

Kamikaze Provisional Drivers Dangerous to others Too.

Andrew Scipone the NSW police commissioner admitted he was at fault recently when turning right into the path of an oncoming FWD (SUV for Yankee doodles).

GIVEN the number of P-platers caught speeding last year - more than 6000 - and considering the rash of recent deadly accidents involving these mostly young drivers, perhaps they need to be reminded that the "P" on those plates merely stands for "provisional".
Too many seem to believe it stands for something else. "Performance", perhaps. Or "potent". The word they might be looking for is "Phoenix". ( From the Ashes). Mind you Scipione being a copper and graciously admitting fault at his own negligence is no excuse for being lackadaisical

Reckless teenage driving styles are influenced by computer games: "Slamming into a pole isn't fixed by simply resetting the PlayStation. It's game over."

Unlike the Phoenix, a creature of myth that rose from the ashes, young lives can't be reset and don't rise from the dead. In the tragic cases of those who are lost, the word we need is "permanent".

This is a difficult concept for teenagers, who are natural risk-takers, to fully grasp. There may be a valid point about computer games, but it's unlikely that every single speeding P-plater has been exposed to computer games to such a degree that their real-world behaviour would be influenced.
Much more likely is that we are battling with broader issues involving the lure of risk and danger and the fearlessness of youth.

It is important to work out exactly what lies behind this behaviour as it applies to driving, because that is the key to a cure.

A legal focus on computer games, seems ill-advised.

Instead, a greater level of corrective action, possibly extending existing laws under which cars are forfeited to police, might be a better bet.

In other words, "P" should sometimes stand for "punishment, Six strokes on the bare bum would curb their enthusiasm to speed and tailgate.

New C F & P " Economics 101"

For Immediate Release
Tuesday, February 9, 2010
202-285-0244
www.freedomandprosperity.org





New CF&P "Economics 101" Video Discusses Monopolies, Competition and School Choice
(Washington, D.C., Tuesday, February 9, 2010) In a new "Economics 101" video released today by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation (CF&P), Izzy Santa of the Cato Institute uses school choice as an example to explain why competition is better than government-created monopolies. The video entitled, "Economics 101: School Choice Example Shows Why Government Monopolies Are Bad," examines the data and notes that private schools produce better academic results at a lower cost than government-run schools.

This new video is part of CF&P's Economics 101 video series, which is designed to explain free market concepts, with particular emphasis on reaching students and young people.



Links to the video: YouTube | Yahoo | Capitol Hub

"As Izzy points out, monopolies rip off consumers with high prices, they offer poor service, and they're bad for overall economic performance because they distort the allocation of resources," said CF&P President Andrew Quinlan. "So there is no surprise that government monopoly schools deliver lower-quality education for our kids."

"School choice is a critical issue, with implications for everything from civil rights to national competitiveness. This video is a great introduction to the issue," added Dan Mitchell, Cato Institute Senior Fellow and Chairman of CF&P.

Executive Summary:

Competition promotes innovation and results in higher quality and lower costs. Government-run schools are a tragic example, by contrast, of why monopolies generate bad results. This video uses the example of school choice to explain why competition is a better approach.

CF&P Foundation has also released more than two-dozen mini-documentaries since 2007. These videos include Tax Competition Primer, VAT-Hidden Tax, Global Flat Tax Revolution, Cutting the U.S. Corporate Income Tax, Promoting Prosperity, Obama's So-Called Stimulus, Obama's Deferral Proposal, Case Against Class-Warfare Tax Policy, President Obama's Dishonest Demagoguery on Tax Havens, a three part series on the Benefits of Tax Havens and a another three-part series on the Laffer Curve.

A liberal dose of Patriotism and Cheating give Australia a Dodgy Win. But only Just. Daily Gaggle post number 600.

Shades of the Feb 1, 1981, dodgy under arm ball emerged in last nights 20/20/ game between Pakistan and a lacklustre Australian team led by the squeaky voiced Bingle banger whose fresh on the field team looked more like a bunch of Nuns playing with plastic bats on the beach.
Aussies all out having been knocked over for a paltry 127 runs; reaped a few runs from overhead deliveries considered wides by the unfaltering OZ favourite uncle type umpires, and the ball having to be re-bowled to make up the allotted number of deliveries in the six ball over(the last sentence will leave most yanks bewildered or stumped).
The indomitable Aussies whose fear of defeat has been well displayed in the past by team captains and Prime Ministers crying uncontrollably in their beer(Kim Hughes and Bob Hawke)were determined not to allow this mob of Muslim bomb chuckers to get in with the slightest chance, although the swashbuckling Pakistani wicket keeper knocked off half the score required-the remaining batsmen were hardly better than the poorly performing headless Australorps. Crunch time came in the last over, ten runs required from six balls, then seven required from 4 balls, it was at this point the latent inbred cheating syndrome entered the fray with our squeaky voiced wimp Oz cricket skipper ordering his bowler to bowl overhead deliveries, these went unnoticed by our patriotic umpires and despite four runs being scored from the last ball the Pakistanis lost by only two runs. Those three uncalled wides if called in the last over would have resulted in a win for Pakistan with three balls and a wicket to spare. shame ennit.

The Aus tour of Pakistan has been called off due to the political unrest in the Islamic republic, reminds me of the RAN Sailor not long back who stated "I cant go to the gulf war,I'm a married man"

Bravery is skin deep, Gutlessness goes down to the bone.

Virginity Sold on On line, Approx 1200 Bids.

WELLINGTON: A cash strapped New zealand student a 19 year old petite size ten blonde Who auctioned off her virginity to help pay her university fees said she had accepted an offer of $NZ45,000 to sleep with a stranger, there were Approx 1,200 bids.
Now the thing is do we refer to this as prostitution or simply another way of paying her way through Uni without being a drag on her parents or the public purse.
Stories abound about students romantic activities while attending universities, so I am thinking this young lady may have been expecting the eventual loss of her maiden head during a future unstable liasion on campus where virginities are a dime a dozen.
Well you may have differing opinions on this matter, bur technically it is simply a useless body part which is similar to having your tonsils removed.
The big Question is. How much do you value Your virginity, assuming of course you still have this seeminly valuable asset, Certain things are factored into your treasuerd posession, such as Age, and surrounding level of attractivness.
A Valuation can be forwarded to you on reciept of your details. Brown paper bag types cannot be assessed.
Ladies remember What confucias Say.
Virginity like bubble, one prick 'All Gone'.

Facebook Poker Chips. Are YOU Safe?

With the continuing rise in popularity of facebook poker chips as a virtual currency in facebook texas holdem poker game a lot of phishers have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned yahoo poker chips.

[url=http://www.chipshut.com][img]http://www.chipshut.com/img/facebook-poker-chips-hut.jpg[/img][/url]

[color=#258]Keep these basic things in mind to protect your facebook poker chips:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a stranger in a poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never download any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Scammers send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the scammer who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by scammer, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behind it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips. Or have you already been diddled, if so, hard luck. get yourself a proper job, didn't your parents tell you it is stupid to gamble.

Remembering the easy on the ear Horse Opera's

The drawl of the Waynes Stewarts and other well known western heroes, spaghetti movies with Eastwood and co, plus the rusty roar and the bark of six guns, the old piano in the barroom belting out the well worn tune "Oh those golden slippers and being reminded of that common phrase by 'Zane Gray' "Meanwhile back at the ranch" you expected to pop up at any moment im his latest book. These movies are still being screened with the likes of old Hitchcock and Musical movies. These movies had what was referred to as background music, this was used to enhance the visual activity but not necessarily blot out the dialogue of the actors.
I am not alone in my opinion with regards to modern movies some are great to watch but to listen to is somemthing reminiscent of the Tower of babel, far too many people cackling at the same time and likened to an Irish parliament,no-one listening either,. Then when the drama gets hotter so does the background "Bang Clang' so called music, reading a synopsis of the plot sometimes helps. however, the best way to get around this problem is to record several movies in advance, then after a few minutes of wiewing you will get a good Idea how the rest will run.
I find mostly American movies and to a lesser extent some British movies fit this overriding noise facter when wiewing movies. One would find more gratification watching a firework display with a fag in one hand and a beer in the other.

The ugly faces of cricket will be absent for a while.

I wonder if those cricket bowlers ever look at their grotesque features when switching on the hate button after dismissing an apposing batsman. For one Peter Siddle comes to mind.. with a face like the rear end of a bulldog at its best.
The ongoing sledging, bickering, umpiring cockups plus the general behaviour on and off the field give our so called sports writers plenty of scope to earn a Quid.
Leaders like 'Australia going for the jugular' and today 'Australians shoot for quick kill'.
It is a pity the Pakistanis failed to remember when winning the toss that it is fatal to bat last under lights on a damp day at the Sydney Cricket ground.

The ACB still regard the 'Underarm ball bowled to the Kiwi batsman as Legal, That sneaky incident orchestrated by the Aus Chappel bros when Greg Chappel ordered his bowling brother Trevor to bowl the last ball underarm to Brian McKechnie. Well the smell has never gone away, so why not on the eve of the anniversary of that blot on OZ cricket in 1981 return the favour when Australia needed Two runs from Three balls last night I reckon the Pakis on a hiding to nothing should have given the Aussies Three legal underarm daisy cutters. Makes one spit dunnit Ricky.

Bunnings have Everything.

BUNNINGS Have EVERYTHING.

This one is a good giggle, it's an old one, but can at least brighten your day
Have a good one.
BTW, Bunnings are large hardware retailers in NSW Australia.

---Bunnings has everything! One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Joe says to Mike behind him, 'My elbow hurts like hell. I guess I'd better see a doctor.' 'Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money,' he replies. 'There's a diagnostic computer down at Bunnings. Just give it a urine sample and the computer will tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars . . . A lot cheaper than a Doctor.' So, Joe deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Bunnings. He deposits ten dollars, and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout: 'You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks. Thank you for shopping @ Bunnings.' That evening, while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Joe began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and a sperm sample for good measure. Joe hurries back to Bunnings, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results. The computer prints the following: 1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. (Aisle 9) 2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. (Aisle 7) 3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab. 4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours. Get a solicitor. 5. If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better! Thank you for shopping @ Bunnings

BTW, "What do you give to a person who has everything"?
