We Don't Agree - You're Sacked

"A software engineer and champion of peer-to-peer file sharing is planning legal action after being sacked for expressing his views on BBC's Newsnight."

This is ludicrous and another example of how business thinks it can get away with anything. Bastards, absolute bastards. Let's see how they like their dreadful actions publicised.

Heh, heh. Some great links here.

I had a friend who used to try and roast chestnuts in a microwave at Christmas time. When I asked him how he'd got on, he sheepishly replied that he was left with "dust and smoke."

Secret Report Says War On Hard Drugs Has Failed







No shit, Sherlock. Just how much longer do we continue this outmoded and innefffective model? The government doesn't even want us to know about this report, FFS.

"A couple years ago while cleaning up around her workbench, Dana Roth was shocked to discover just how many beer cans littered the space. A different person might have used the moment to question their alcohol consumption, but Dana decided to crack open another beer and make some jewelry. "
