It appears that another country, Brazil, has been ahead of the USA in technology and politics for 10 years. Too bad it appears that M$ is tampering with the votes

Comcast must really be desperate (and suck) for them to call people up and lie about their competitor. Of course, lying is not new to them... They have been lying about DSL and the quality of Comcast services since day 1.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. discusses the election fraud

Good luck flying to Europe anytime soon

How about a conversational robot?

Or some really nice wooden pc cases for those DIY projects?

What I find interesting is not that Google refuses to give over records to the Brazilian Government, but that eight million Brazilians use Orkut and I still can't get an account

Ok, even I think Doctor Who is cheating. I don't think you should be able to claim "longest running show" if you stop for years on end. Maybe I should just redo the first video ever and say that I have produced the longest running show?

You know, maybe we should just give in. I said it, give in. Hollywood is right - piracy has a ripple effect that hurts the economy. I mean, after all, Hollywood itself (and the members of the MPAA) got their start from stealing from Thomas Edison and not paying him for his patents. Obviously, the movie making business as a whole has completely demolished our economy. Idiots.

If you *really* think that Ozzy taught your kid to commit suicide, that Snoop showed them how to be gang bangers, or that Grand Theft Auto taught them how to kill -- commit yourself to an asylum, give your kids up for adoption, and NEVER EVER think of breeding -- EVER!

I guess the Brazilians are also ahead of the USA in figureing it all out.....Somos Estupidos.....I have no clue how to say that in Portuguese....
