Russians Retrieve First Sample of Lake Vostok
Absolutely right...I keep forgetting my lessons from Improv school: things are funnier in threes, trolling is a art, and jokes are better when based on solid, verifiable geo-political data.
Russians Retrieve First Sample of Lake Vostok
Russians are trying to be good capitalists...they'll build one in Kiev and sell tap water called Fresh From Vostok. Just like Nestle/Coke/et al.

DOJ Could Ban Texas Flights Over Anti-Patdown Law
You are mistaken. Most people are three-toed hermaphrodites.
See, just because you say it, doesn't make it true. Supporting evidence always helps.
The last number I could find was 50% for supporting patdowns, even less for frequent fliers.
Righthaven Defies Court In Domain Name Ruling
Righthaven is the copyright arm of the Las Vegas Review Journal...to give you an idea of the nuttiness we have to endure here in SinCity, keep in mind that the newspaper vehemently and viciously supported Her Wackiness Sharron Angle for Senate last year but then, in a grand showing of just how much they love their own wacky brand of libertarianism, sued her as a part of the Righthaven IP trolling campaign while continuing to donate money to her and devote editorial space to her campaign on a daily basis.
It had a strange beauty...like watching two warthogs fighting over a rotting squirrel carcass while mating.

Help Map Global Light Pollution, By Starlight
I live on the side of a city-facing mountain in Las Vegas...if I leave my blinds open at night, it's like sleeping in the middle of a fully-lit Walmart. First thing I did when I moved here several years back was sell my telescope.
Happy 80th Birthday, William Shatner!
He was. Were you as put off as I by the actor in the new ST movie basically acting like Deforest Kelly pretending to be Bones McCoy?

Insider-Trading Suspects Smash Hard Drive Evidence
True, but, were I in their shoes, I'd have to ask myself:
1. Does acting strangely (i.e., throwing my hard drives in random garbage trucks) prove my guilt in the case?
2. If there is evidence on those hard drives that probably would prove my guilt, which is the lesser sentence: obstruction or whatever I'll get charged with if they find smokinggun.jpg on those drives?

Judge Ends Massive Porn Lawsuit
So, it's like this: Tommy Lee is driving the BangBus down the interstate, picking up every hooker and frat boy he sees. They can't all fit and do their business, as it's a 1994 Ford Aerostar and not, like, an Econoline or a cargo unit. After a couple of near-crashes and a blown shock (no pun intended), he tells all of them to get out, except for a guy in a white wig and black robe, and a girl wearing nothing but ten packages of PostIt notes stuck to her body. She is coming home from the courthouse, where she is filing for divorce from her cheating bastard of a husband, and really needs the hundred dollar bill that Ray LaHood, US Secretary of Transportation and part-time porn director, is waving in her face. Like any reasonable girl you find on the roadside, is willing to work for it. Ray is just there to make sure that they are all safe.
And that is how the steam engine changed modern warfare. Questions?

UK Politician Arrested Over Twitter 'Stoning Joke'
It's absolutely ridiculous...anyone with a modicum of reason would assume that it was a joke. Making a threat is enough to investigate, in many cases, but a clear joke does not warrant arrest.
Funny part is, though, that he is now a victim of a stupid law that he may have been a party to legislating.
