|The Scots do have a big international holiday like St.Patrick's day. It's called Burns Night (or Day)". It is unfortunately largely ignored in the U.S.A. Although it isn't a deliberate attempt to ingest something more revolting than green beer, it's traditional to eat Haggis for Burns Supper.

|Do you remember playing Dungeons and Dragons in the late 70s and early 80s? Do you remember what you were like back then? Unfortunately for you, someone does remember all to well. Worse yet, they've made a little movie about it.|

|Sony Online Entertainment's Everquest is a nasty place.
Several locations feature gruesome implements of torture and severed heads.
Elements of the gameplay require killing pregnant women. But this is to be
expected, Everquest is a fantasy roleplaying game in a setting with medieval
overtones. So why did Sony's Verant unit ban a player for
writing a piece of disturbing fan fiction about the game? Their first
statement on the matter suggested that they didn't want that kind of guy
playing their game. Their second
statement implied it was all about protecting their copyrights, but this smacks
of legal damage control.
The idea that a corporation
can cut off a service because they don't like what you say is kind of chilling. My
response to all this? Sponsor the Electronic Frontier

|The use of HTML features is appalling, and the content is even worse, but thatís really the whole point of The Temple of the Workshy. In fact, you would be hard pressed to come up with a website that was more appalling. For a quick sample of exactly how appalling this site can be, visit the list of Secret Documents and scroll down until you find the letter to "Opera Winfrey."

|Our neighbors to the north have long complained of American cultural imperialism and our general lack of respect for their alleged contributions to the arts and sciences. Now it seems that a group of doughty Canadians has decided to take matters into their own hands with a plan for Canadian World Domination. Sounds pretty extreme, eh?

|Build your own personal artillery without having the ATF turn your yard into a facsimile of Waco, Texas. Spud guns are dangerous, anti-social, and apparently perfectly legal. The web is ringed with sites aimed at starting a neighborhood arms race. |
