6 Pennsylvania Teens Face Child Porn Charges For Pics of Selves

OldHorton Under 18 year olds hold all the power now (1044 comments)

Don't like a teacher? Take a nude photo of yourself with your phone and send it to him then call the cops. Teacher is gone. Don't like a fellow student? Same thing applies.

This is incredibly ridiculous.

Study Confirms Mobile Phones Distract Drivers

OldHorton Re:talking on mobile as dangerous as drunk driving (439 comments)

People feel obligated to talk when on a phone for some reason. It's valuable minutes after all. That's why you'll never see someone putting down a phone to accomplish a task while driving. They'll just take longer to do the same task.

Study Confirms Mobile Phones Distract Drivers

OldHorton Re:talking on mobile as dangerous as drunk driving (439 comments)

I've found when I'm talking on the phone I have to concentrate a little to understand exactly what they are saying. However, if someone is sitting right next to me I don't at all. This little bit of concentration winds up distracting me from other things.

It's much like how some people when talking on a cell phone are oblivious to what's around them and talk loudly about all sorts of things. If the same person was talking to someone sitting right next to them this doesn't happen at all.

Supreme Court To Rule On TV Censorship

OldHorton Re:How ironic (426 comments)

And every other news channel and their constant liberal bias on everything is any different? I'm just glad there's at least one channel that leans straighter than far left.

By the way, EVERY "news" channel does not show news. It's all entertainment, ratings, and money. If you believe Anna Nicole Smith really was so important that these channels were right to spend hundreds of hours covering her death than I guess you would believe these channels really are a reliable source of news. The sad part is most of the US actually believes the crap they hear, thus our election results.

Barack Obama Wins US Presidency

OldHorton Voting democrat isn't voting for change (3709 comments)

If people really wanted change they wouldn't have fallen into the same old two party system. Having an independent in the office would've been true change. However, I guess charisma and popularity wins out over rationalism and logic any day when the full mass of people is concerned.
