Frank Turner Song Parody: Tony F***ed the Country


Whatever happened to Britain?
It’s like we’re scared of phantom enemies to the point of bedpissin’
Even if the danger is minor
The press and gov scaremonger
With their endless agitprop bullshit!

Yo, bigot! Anyone who looks less white than you
Makes you wonder if they’re immigrants or Muslims or Jews
But I’m tired of the endless hatred
And yet the media hacks are always stirring shit! Read the full story

Google: “People Don’t Need Bathroom Doors”


In a statement updated from 2009 and 2010, Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google Inc., has reiterated his belief that people need extremely little privacy, saying: “If you’re doing something that you don’t want anyone to see, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.

If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that most actions can be monitored with thermal imaging technology, and minimum privacy search engines – including Google – do retain this information for some time, and it’s important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act, and it is definite that all that information should be made available to the authorities.” Continue reading

Risk Assessment for Wiping One’s Own Bum
