Once I have stripped this life of everything that brings me joy, once I have mined it for its monetary value, then things will be okay. Once I stop trying to live and focus on existing, then my situation will improve. Once, and only once, I reach into that deep, dark part of myself where dignity and self-respect live, where they lie in airy freedom, and wrench them out into the light where they can be shackled to the dollar to live and work and die like the rest of us, only then will I know what ‘success’ feels like. That is all I need to do. Certainly, “once” is for the better. Else, I can hold my head under water to the point that lungs turn to fire and every ounce of my stiffness needs be thrust down to fight the stubborn unsinkability of my skull. Surely, “once” is better than this; what can mere humanity offer me that the hard-won independence of difficult choices can’t?
everything seems shit and my support network appears to have been constructed from glue and balsa wood.
Feed them a thread, it leads to a string. Follow the string, it leads to a rope. And from that rope every vestige of what was will be hung by the neck.

okay so further legislation is necessary why?
I bet a number of SOPA/PIPA supporters actually lose money over this. Take this example: I watched The Tudors and Weeds on Megaupload/Video BB because I can’t fucking afford premium cable. But since I liked these shows (well weeds sucks now, but the earlier seasons) I have been acquiring them on DVD. And I plan to purchase Game of Thrones (a part of me wants to boycott, but damn I love the show too much). How many shows will I not buy now because I won’t be able to see them first?
I used to be sceptical of the anti-copyright/copyleft/copywrong movement because as a creative person I want attribution for my work, and I want to know the attributions for others’ work. I don’t care about money, I just want people to know I made it, and I want to know who made other stuff. Now, I’m completely on board. If a patent and copyright system for creative works means that we must have a monstrous industry that cannibalises independent artists, obsesses over profit and uses government and law enforcement apparatus as its personal strongmen, then fuck it. Fuck SOPA, fuck PIPA, and fuck their supporters. We had this exact same bullshit in the 1980s over home taping, and it isn’t any more reasonable now than it was then.
“Because of Edison’s patents for the motion pictures it was close to financially impossible to create motion pictures in the North American east coast. The movie studios therefor relocated to California, and founded what we today call Hollywood. The reason was mostly because there was no patent. There was also no copyright to speak of, so the studios could copy old stories and make movies out of them - like Fantasia, one of Disney’s biggest hits ever. So, the whole basis of this industry, that today is screaming about losing control over immaterial rights, is that they circumvented immaterial rights. They copied (or put in their terminology: “stole”) other peoples creative works, without paying for it. They did it in order to make a huge profit. Today, they’re all successful and most of the studios are on the Fortune 500 list of the richest companies in the world. Congratulations - it’s all based on being able to re-use other peoples creative works. And today they hold the rights to what other people create. If you want to get something released, you have to abide to their rules. The ones they created after circumventing other peoples rules. The reason they are always complaining about “pirates” today is simple. We’ve done what they did. We circumvented the rules they created and created our own. We crushed their monopoly by giving people something more efficient. We allow people to have direct communication between each other, circumventing the profitable middle man, that in some cases takeover 107% of the profits (yes, you pay to work for them). It’s all based on the fact that we’re competition. We’ve proven that their existence in their current form is no longer needed. We’re just better than they are.”

Despite all the hype about “sexting,” a new national study finds that just 1 percent of kids age 10-17 have actually sent explicit pictures of themselves or others via their cell phones, the Associated Press reports.
But of course we need to have a huge media blowup over it anyway.
CNN and its affiliates have made a number of textfails, but the worst was when they ran this story today with the footer “1 in 10 teens egage in sexting”. Really? I didn’t realise that 1% was the same as 1/10.
