I don't think I need to explain this one. Really.

Some people just don't react well to sticker shock.
WASHINGTON — The nonpartisan budget scorekeepers in Congress said on Thursday that the Republican plan to repeal President Obama’s health care law would add $230 billion to federal budget deficits over the next decade, intensifying the first legislative fight of the new session and highlighting the challenge Republicans face in pursuing their agenda.[...] But Mr. Boehner’s remarks held wider implications, effectively putting him on a war footing with the independent analysts whose calculations generally guide discussions about the projected cost or savings of any legislation. “I do not believe that repealing the job-killing health care law will increase the deficit,” he said.(NYT)
And personally I don't believe any lying-through-the-teeth politico fuckwad like you Mr.BONE-R. See the notion of "non-partisan" seems to be lost on someone who prefers to just make up supporting facts as he goes along. So what if there's no basis in truth? Yeah it's gonna be an awesome next two years. I can feel the juices flowing already.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Cursing in public may not be seemly, but it is protected by the Constitution, a North Carolina judge ruled in striking down a 98-year-old state ban on public profanity. Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour dismissed a misdemeanor charge Wednesday against Chapel Hill resident Samantha Elabanjo, who had been convicted in July of using the word "damn" during a confrontation with police officers.[...] "There is no longer any consensus, if there ever was, on what words in the modern American lexicon are 'indecent' or 'profane,'" Baddour wrote. "A reasonable person cannot be certain before she acts that her language is not violative of this law, and it is therefore unconstitutionally vague."
About damn time if you ask me. And a hearty "of course you're fucking right" to Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour. If cursing is considered acceptable on primetime TV, right the fuck in front of the rugrats then it's as American as apple pie and just as acceptable. The cops simply were looking to stick it to someone who gave them lip, and now that little exploit is closed. A win for the common man? Fucking, hell yes it is!

I'm not exactly sure what makes me want to roll my eyes but every time I pass someone in the halls wearing headphones I think to myself "Seriously? You couldn't step away from the music long enough to go to the bathroom?" It may not be the very pinnacle of rudeness but it's damn, fucking close to it. Hey I totally understand wearing headphones at your desk. I do it all the time. Especially when my officemates are doing something that bugs me. I can be sensitive sometimes (generally when shit just doesn't compile, or crashes and burns for no damned good reason) to sounds, so I totally understand the need to block out distracting sounds in order to concentrate. But walking down the hall? No. I mean what are you gonna do, say hi as the other person mimes you a greeting? So please, if you can't manage to cope without your music for the time it takes you to get to your destination, just fucking hold it till you piss yourself. Either that or find some manners.

TORONTO (AP) — A pilot's spilled coffee accidentally triggered a hijacking alert and caused a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Frankfurt, Germany, to make an unscheduled stop in Canada.[...] United spokesman Rahsaan Johnson acknowledged Wednesday that one of three cockpit crew members caused the mishap by spilling a drink. "It was a beverage. During light turbulence one of the crew members beverages spilled which then caused issues with the airplanes communications equipment," Johnson said.
You know, for what a Boeing 777 costs you'd think it would have at least a few cup holders in the cockpit. Maybe United decided to get the econo-model?

ISLAMABAD (AP) — The governor of Pakistan's most dominant province was shot and killed Tuesday by a bodyguard who authorities said was angry about his opposition to blasphemy laws carrying the death sentence for insulting the Muslim faith.
It's unimaginable that a police officer, a trusted man, would shoot someone he's sworn to protect in the back. That's about as cowardly and unmanly an act as sneaking around in a woman's hijab trying to evade capture. It's absolutely clear that the number of troglodytes living and killing in the name of Islam far exceeds those with any portion of sanity. I pity those predominantly Muslim nations, they have nothing to show but blood, death, and violence against everyone - including their own. The sooner they kill themselves off the sooner we can all live in peace.

I'm not a terribly big fan of New Year's eve television, but when you're with a bunch of friends it's fine, tame, harmless fare. Chunky Fergie was there jiggling about energetically and calling out the next act like a cabaret ringmistress. Honestly most of the performers earned their wages, singing their big hits with gusto and interacting with the audience. With the notable exception of one performer: Avril Lavigne. Although I do give her credit for energetic impersonation, she was clearly lipsynching her performance. And I'm sorry, ever since Milli Vanilli got busted for doing that during their concerts back in the 80's (not that I was EVER a fan of theirs) I've had a strong distaste for fakers who can't or won't take the risk of performing their own music on stage. Please, I'm sure you're getting paid enough to perform, can't you at least do the audience the honor of actually giving them what they paid for? Hell if they just wanted to watch you act out the vocals they could just watch YouTube. To me lipsynching demonstrates a complete lack of respect (I mean come on, just how stupid do you think the audience is, they won't notice that your breathing isn't timed with the song?). So the artist deserves no respect from the audience in return. Frankly if someone was going to buy tickets for a concert I might keep that in mind, you might not be getting what you pay for.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A pilot who posted YouTube videos criticizing security at San Francisco International Airport says he's shocked at the national uproar they've created. Chris Liu told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that he wasn't aware so many people watch YouTube. He and his attorney, Don Werno, defended the footage as exposing a security lapse at the airport.
Shocked. Really? The only thing he's shocked about is the fact that they uncovered his identity so quickly. No, I don't care one way or another about the content or intent of his posting, just the feigned shock and indignation. Guy, word here, you're a pilot not an actor. Just stick to what you're good at.

LONDON (AP) — Britain's Royal Mint has released a commemorative coin featuring supposedly lifelike portraits of Prince William and his bride-to-be — but critics say Kate Middleton has a right to be horrified. Images of the couple on the memento bear little resemblance to either the prince or his 28-year-old betrothed. Middleton appears plump in the face and lips and has bags under her eyes. Some critics claim William looks like Al Gore [...] Dickie Arbiter, a former royal spokesman, says it's often difficult to produce accurate images on a coin.
Difficult? Aw come on now, for how many ages have likenesses been engraved on the coins of the realm. The real difference is that back in the hey-day artists would get the axe (sword, dagger, lance, etc.) if they did a crappy job. These days it's much harder to enforce. I promise you, had the sculptor's life been on the line the rendition of a "commemorative coin" would have at least been attractive, even if not completely accurate.

In the JNI framework, native functions are implemented in separate .c or .cpp files. (C++ provides a slightly cleaner interface with JNI.)
Ah yes, I remember when Java came out. People flocked. "Oh, oh!" They all cried, "We have seen the light and it is Java! Java will save us all!" And then They all flocked to Sun to get certified in Java, which would guarantee them a place in the... uh... sun with rivers of Jolt cola and Poptarts galore. Only that last part never happened. Sure Java is still around, and people program in it but Sun is now Oracle and guess what folks? C++ and even C are still around! Omgwtf! As a former Pascal turned Fortran turned C turned C++ turned C# turned Java and now returned to C++ programmer I just have to laugh. That quote, by the way, comes from an implementation of AMQP messaging. And JNI stands for "Java Native Interface". So reading it out the quote says that their Java Native Interface is implemented in C or C++ (of which C++ has the cleaner interface). Oh it is to laugh. These days implementation languages mean very little. There are dozens of ways to develop and deploy, from assembler to simple little HTML. Java, the great platform-independent savior of code-reuse is just another tool. Maybe we could blame Sun but I guess it's just a little too late for that.

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley has apologized to parishioners at a Roman Catholic church because a priest called several men "cowards" for accusing the church's former pastor of abuse.[...] Kempa took to the pulpit on Dec. 11 to lash out at three former altar boys, now in their 30s, who said they were abused by the Rev. Czeslaw Szymanski (shesh-LAV' sih-MAN'-skee) in the 1980s. Szymanski, who was never charged, has since died.
A coward is someone who needs someone else to apologize for their mistakes. Stan clearly isn't man enough to stand up and say what needs to be said, he had to have Cardinal O'Malley do it for him. So when it comes to cowards I'd say we've found their king.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — An Abu Dhabi luxury hotel that boasted an $11 million Christmas tree decorated with gold and gems admitted Sunday it may have taken the holiday spirit a bit too far. A statement from the Emirates Palace hotel said it regretted "attempts to overload" the Christmas tree tradition by adorning it with premium bling including gold, rubies, diamonds and other precious stones from a hotel jeweler.
Gee ya think? 11 million? I boggles the mind. Truly.

The party of "No?" Ha! They've even found a way to exceed that excess.
The same people driving the lawsuits that seek to dismantle the Obama administration’s health care overhaul have set their sights on an even bigger target: a constitutional amendment that would allow a vote of the states to overturn any act of Congress. Under the proposed “repeal amendment,” any federal law or regulation could be repealed if the legislatures of two-thirds of the states voted to do so.
Who needs a centralized government? It should be every state for themselves! Succession now! Fuck unity! Divided we stand! There's a difference between "we the people" and "I the person". Remember folks, these are the same idiots who want to keep their Medicare, but eliminate socialized medicine. Too bad they can't read and can't think. Ever wonder why the country is in the shitter? I don't.

What happens when an ecosystem goes awry? What happens when predators outnumber prey? Mayhem right? The predators start going after smaller prey and eventually each other. Frankly I can hardly wait for the latter to happen, but consider the damage being done in the mean time...
CLOVIS, Calif. — At 17 years old, Preston Hill is known around the Fresno area as an accomplished wrestler, a leader of his high school team, the Buchanan Bears, and a potential candidate for a college scholarship in the sport he loves. But over the past several months, Preston has been battling another opponent, the Fresno County district attorney, who has charged him with a bizarre crime: using a wrestling move to sexually assault a teammate. According to a police report, during a July practice Preston used a maneuver informally known as a “butt drag” — which involves grabbing the haunch of an opponent to gain leverage — to roughly and intimately assault a smaller, younger wrestler on his team in retaliation for a supposed affront.
Amazing really, ok maybe not so much when you consider this is California, where lawyers (and sensibilities) run amok. But seriously the DA going after a wrestler for using a well defined move? Then when you read further about the kid who is claiming assault you find out that he's made claims against other students for bullying him.
The 14-year-old accuser’s father, Ross Rice, said it would have been easier not to press charges. “But that’s the wrong attitude,” he said. “That’s when you can end up with a Columbine situation.
Columbine? Really? Now it becomes a little more clear why the kid is off the wall, because his parents are nutjobs. Sorry if I can't connect a claim of being "groped" during a wrestling match to the murder/suicides of Columbine. Frankly the parents should have thought about it a little more, because now their son will be a permanent social pariah. Good job, way to blow things out of control and ruin your kid's and someone else's future forever.

I mean, I'm just asking the obvious. Recently she posted an Op-ed piece in the Times, I won't bother linking it here, it's pure narcissism at it's finest: "Look at me! I used to be married to John Lennon!" Yeah ok you were. That was his mistake, not ours. I love the last line of the piece "Yoko Ono is an artist." Really? Could have fooled me. She never produced anything I recognized as art. Just co-opting the title does not auto-magically award it. Sorry, an artist need to produce art, and that still remains to be demonstrated. I notice that her shorter-than-a-highschool-book-report piece didn't last very long on the front page. Or the inside pages either. I had to dig four links deep to find it on link-to-a-link-to-a-link. Look lady, we don't care who you think you are, or how important you think you should be. Your only claim to fame was driving a wedge between a man and his friends for your own selfish ends. Goway ok? You bore us.

The new republicans want to fight. Note there wasn't anything more to that sentence, it just ended abruptly at "fight". This is because there isn't anything they really are fighting for except their image. Frankly I'm ok with this and I hope the Democrats decide to play the same card. No compromise? Ok, no compromise. Grind the nation to a halt in short order? Sure! Why should the filthy 1% get their payoff so quickly? They bought those guys, lock, stock and barrel but if they don't come through? America loves a hostage crisis, and what better way to keep people entertained than to manufacture one. Now the country gets to be the victim, criminal and innocent bystander all in one go. The news will be awash in who's to blame, and in the end nothing will change. Ya gotta love it. The war on terror? Please, we have seen the terrorists, and they is us baby. They is US.

I think the Pope needs a lesson in biology...
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI has called for politicians and other world leaders to show more respect for human life at its earliest stages by saying embryos are dynamic, autonomous individuals.
It's a demonstration of arbitrary thought: Oh respect embryos but only human ones and not the vessel that brings it to life or provides food and shelter and... insert exception after exception here. You have to love how he doesn't crusade for the equality of women who have babies, nor really even the babies themselves after they are born, but just the potential itself. To me it's like playing the stock market and capitalizing on just the change in price but not investing in the companies. Basically the Pope likes to short the human race not actually support it. Why invest in a losing proposition (aka living humans) when it's much safer to be the "voice" of those who can't take exception? I won't waste much more time here but I do have link that I feel is relevant, at least enough to rate its own wikipedia page... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Every_Sperm_Is_Sacred
