Fox News marks Repub. former Congressman Mark Foley as Democrat

Sources: BoingBoing.net - foxnewswow.ytmnd.com

Fox News, a notoriously Conservative broadcast, "accidently" marked Mark Foley as a democrat. Whoops!

I frankly am not suprised by this kind of thing Fox does. It's just noise now, which is sad.

Superman Returns banned from PC

EA's "Superman Returns" Forums

It was explained earlier that there will be no PC version due to Modding MODders who MOD abusing their freedom to create things unfavorable in today's society. Since this game is a joint effort between several companies, there are certain things they don't want to see happen, like the ability to harm people in this videogame. Keeping the game strictly within the console industry will prevent others from ruining the image of Superman, and the companies that it is affiliated with.

Oh and by MODding the game to allow Superman to harm people, would require a higher ESRB rating since wanton destruction and violence is not Suitable for Everyone.


Uhh... excuse me? Modding (not MODding) is probably one of the main reasons why the PC platform is still alive and kicking, and a perferred platform by quite a few companies (you don't see gaming geniuses like Will Wright or Sid Meier designing games specifically for consoles). EA can't be allowed to do this shit, it's the same thing as not selling airplane simulators because you could use it to simulate a 9/11-esque event. This is bullshit management in the most extreme degree.

Holy crap, a post!

*blows dust off of weblog* Hey, I remember this! I wonder if anyone cares. :p

Anyways, I'm gonna start writing in this more often. And, in order to appeal to an audience, I'm going to write about more than just my life. And I'll change the name, so it's less personal.

I'll make my first content post later today. Just not now. I'm on the world's crappiest laptop.
