I'm heading for the mountains. If people are this stupid, the end of the world can't be far away. See below.

"The 19-year-old Shi'ite woman from the town of Qatif in the Eastern Province was raped by seven men in 2006. A court had originally sentenced the woman to 90 lashes and the rapists to jail terms of between 10 months and five years.

But the victim's lawyer told Reuters last week the court had increased her sentence to 200 lashes and six months in prison. He said the court had blamed the woman for being alone with unrelated men."

The original story is HERE.

The Sweet Taste of Success

Mission accomplished. What mission? THIS mission. Two name brand, plasma HDTVs for under $560 a piece. Merry Christmas indeed. And it's not even Thanksgiving.

Facebook vs. Myspace

I have an account with each, but the only reason I have Myspace is because I have some friends who don't use Facebook.

Some people like Myspace's customized layouts. In my opinion, they're its worst feature. Yes, even worse than the never ending stream of fake spam women constantly trying to get me to add them to my friends list.

Myspace makes my eyes bleed. Some of the layouts are mind-boggling. On Myspace, a layout's legibility is inversely proportionate to its popularity. Black font on a black background is not good design. Further, I absolutely hate the ridiculous animated .GIF's in most people's comment sections.

On the other hand, Facebook's obsession with "Applications" is really irritating, too. The vast majority are worthless, and require you to install them to participate. That being said, the layout is much cleaner, and so is the clientèle. Myspace feels kind of like the bad part of town. The kind of place where you might not be in imminent physical danger, but you'll at least have to put up with hookers and panhandlers at the gas station.

As far as security, Myspace seems lax, at best. I'm constantly getting posts from my friends pitching MLM and pyramid schemes. Or, more correctly, I'm getting posts from scammers/spammers who have hijacked my friends' login credentials for their purposes.

What do you guys think? Any preferences?

76 Points? Are you serious?

That's 11 touchdowns, for those of you keeping score at home. Unbelievable. More points against Nebraska than anyone. Ever.

The coast is clear

The Chiefs are far ahead of everyone's expectations, and are in 1st place in the AFC West.

KU football has smashed everyone's expectations to bits. I can't believe we're undefeated in November, and are 19 point favorites over the Huskers.

And to top it off, KU basketball is kicking off.

Even my high school football team is undefeated so far this season.

Of course, all of this could change, and i could have three losses dumped on my lap by the end of the weekend. But I'll take it.
