inky: Re: Fifteen Patients Die as Earth Hour Kills Life Support in Hospital: REALLY WHAT THE FUCK? I AIN’T EVEN GONNA USE ACRONYMS HERE. WHAT THE FUCK?? I SUPPORTED EARTH HOUR. BUT HECK, YOU REALLY DON’T HAVE TO SHUT OFF NECESSARY POWER. ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE LIFE SUPPORTS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! WHAT WOULD THEIR FAMILIES SAY? “OH I LOST MY RELATIVE BECAUSE OF EARTH HOUR..” THIS IS FUCKED UP,...

Iwata: Well, I think that's about it. Uh, has anyone forgotten to… Oh, that's right. I've got a question for Osawa-san. What do you think of Takeuchi-san?
Takeuchi: Uh-oh… (laughs)
Yone: Uh-oh… (laughs)
Takeuchi: I'm s-scared to hear. (laughs)
Iwata: What kind of person is he?
Osawa: I'd be…lost without him.
Everyone: (laughs uproariously)
Osawa: Spiritually…professionally…I'd be…lost. (laughs)
Iwata: I truly understand. (laughs)
Osawa: Is that answer…all right? (laughs)
Iwata: It's fine. What about Yone-san?
Osawa: He's very…kind. He knows how to read me…and cheers me up. When I'm feeling down, he e-mails me pictures of kittens.
Everyone: (roaring laughter)

Osawa: Photos of cute kittens are a big help. (laughs)

From Latin lucubro: to work by lamp-light, work at night kfellows: I hope someone calls me out on this, but I really don’t think that’s the meaning. Certainly, the word’s origins lie in that meaning.

Facing Legal Pressure, SeeqPod Plans to Spawn... →
SeeqPod is a search engine that hunts down music uploaded to the internet, then streams it. The RIAA wants to kill it, like they did with Muxtape. SeeqPod’s response? They’re selling the source code to all comers, hoping to spawn copies. Just to give the RIAA a headache. Ladies and gentlemen, your heroes of the hour.
Why OnLive Can't Possibly Work →
Consider. A console that does all that tedious rendering behind the scenes, meaning you can play faster. Sounds too good to be true? Read on and find out how OnLive will have to have some serious genii on staff (Eurogamer).
A sample of the album Dawn Metropolis. Each track included is about two minutes of the original full-length track. Please note that, after clicking a strip, it’ll take a while (two minutes+ on a slow line) for the song to load fully. And then it (and the music video) will play. So, be patient.

tristanjay7: pterodactyls: Holy carp! Eel be watching this story for further developments - this excites me on a really bass level.

What are you talking atrout? I’ve been whiting for stuff like this to show...

Pilot sentenced for praying during air crash - RTÉ... →
travors: A pilot has been sentenced to ten years in prison for pausing to pray instead of taking emergency measures during a crash landing which left 16 people dead. Astounding stupidity. What, he was incapable of praying WHILE saving the plane? And I thought they checked if pilots could remain cool under pressure.

nosmo: I know I’ve been posting a lot of Ireland-related articles recently, but it seems that the shit is hitting the fan for this little cardboard country. Over the last weekend, someone hung satirical portraits of Brian Cowen (our Taoiseach - not prime minister but kinda like it) in the National Gallery in Dublin. Not as part of an exhibition and without authorisation. Obviously, this was...
