Don't Copy That Floppy! Gets a Sequel

Tatisimo Re:BILLY MAYS HERE... (523 comments)

I hope they got permission to use Klingons in their video. If not, I suggest whoever owns Klingons sue the hell out of them! And they better not make one of those retarded "fair use" arguments, those are totally not valid.

Mexican Government To Document Cell Phone Use

Tatisimo Mexican here (232 comments)

Prepaid phones are sold pretty cheaply to anyone with hardly any name needed for the transaction last time I checked. Note that I do not own a cell phone due to privacy concerns, and with this new law I am unlikely to get one.

In my experience, there's several people who due to poverty or lack of concern are not registered with the relatively new CURP system. Thus I wonder, how will it affect those people? Will they shell out 20 pesos to pay some kid with internet access to get it for them, or will they stop using cell phones?

I believe (and hope) this law will fail in epic proportions. Mainly due to Telcel, pretty much the only cellphone provider, losing too many costumers over it. Also, there seems to be much opposition: there are very few comments supporting the law on the article linked.

Mexico does need a way to get rid of our infamy before the eyes of the world, a police state will only make us even worse. We don't need this kind of stupidity coming from our government, however corrupt it may be.

I call prior art on all those: I patented a goatse that gouges out its own eyes back in 1999.

Boy Thrown Through Window By Exploding Toilet

Tatisimo Bah, that's nothing! (15 comments)

In places where the old fashioned outhouses are used, there's always some idiot who decides to smoke while in there. Due to the gases that have built up in there, the tiniest spark will... Don't even wanna think about it! Let's just say that I always figured that the Goatse guy must have had some accident of that sort.

Cisco Ships Mexican Folk Music On VPN Client CD

Tatisimo Mexican here, shedding some light (79 comments)

The song sample is one of the crappy bootleg remixes that wanna be DJs sell on swap meets. Also, it's crappy "Narco Corridos" (check out what wikipedia has to say http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcocorrido), a genre that some songwriter friends of mine define as "the cancer that is killing Mexican music". The first thing is the cliche echo deep voice, frequent in remix CDs, followed by some guy singing about how much he loves drugs. Oh, and the pic is totally unrelated. I've never heard narco corridos played by a mariachi band!

Not that this will help solve the mystery, but whoever pulled this prank has a very poor taste in music, I'd say.
