Fox News covers the controversial sex scene in Mass Effect for the Xbox 360:

The top news stories at the BBC site just now had not one, but three priceless stories at once!

Inept pair jailed for bread theft - One robber shoots the other in the butt by accident, and then runs away with a bag full of bread rolls that he thought was money.

Woman jailed for testicle attack - She pulled a little too hard, and then tried to swallow it... this should be in project WTF I think

I ate children's hearts, ex rebel says - He is for realz. If you watched Darker than Black, he's probably a contractor that can create a vacuum from nothing.

Here's another article on Heath Ledger's life and death:
http://gawker.com/347776/heath-ledger-actor-1979+2008

It's too bad. I really liked him in Brokeback Mountain, A Knight's Tale and 10 Things I Hate About You. I can't remember the last time he acted like a dick in public, which sets him far apart from people named Tom and Mel.

In other celebrity news! This is why it's not unfair when men have to court women, if you think that way XD

Here's a gross out picture of a Britney Spears panty shot while she has her period: http://x17online.com/celebrities/britney...8.php#more

And then here's a really funny reaction by Margaret Cho, a comedian in the US: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/margaret-c...82713.html

Period education for men. Tralalala~

I hope The Dark Knight kicks so much as that it does justice to Ledger's passing away.

A study finds that the Bush Administration made 935 false statements regarding Iraq in order to justify the war.

Hahah yeah I read that one too. "No pets allowed" Laughing

For guys dressing like that here, it'd be too hot. For girls... well, no problem.

Remember the psychogist that starred in Fox News' segment on bashing Mass Effect?

She's been attacked by Anon

Fox News itself seems to be in more hot water, though, given that BioWare's parent company wasn't too happy with their segment. In short: They pissed off EA

US Government to start using their own spy satellites for domestic surveillance.

Beautiful.

Sure, they said that they'd still maintain all the privacy laws blah blah. But who the hell's gonna police that? It's not as if regular citizens will even know if they're being "monitored".

This world sure is getting more and more messed up. Pretty soon, we really will have RFID chips implanted under our skin. -_-

"US to Shoot Down Borken Satellite"

Riiiiiight...

They're probably just using their own Satellite to experiment on how to shoot down enemy spy satellites in the future.

It's in times like this that I'm thankful I live in such a backward country. Heh.

My thoughts exactly, Mix.

But you know, if we had the resources for it, our government would probably be doing this to us too. >_<

True. God only knows the extent of the current administration's paranoia.

Raffy, if the Philippines had enough money and military resources I think they'd track the people they want to track, even if said people are outside the country.

Pero buti nalang, mahirap tayo! Cheers for poverty!

Yep, the US was able to blow up the satellite. Yep, the US has now shown the world that they can shoot you down even if you're up in space.
