Jihadi Bieber

    • Some opponents of the so-called “Ground Zero mosque” have launched a boycott of Justin Bieber over the Canadian teen pop sensation’s support of the construction of a Muslim community center not far from the site of the 9/11 attacks.

      The only problem is, Bieber has apparently never endorsed the center known as Park 51, or even discussed it publicly.

    • Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the University of Texas at Austin have uncovered evidence that environmental influences experienced by a father can be passed down to the next generation, “reprogramming” how genes function in offspring. A new study published this week in Cell shows that environmental cues—in this case, diet—influence genes in mammals from one generation to the next, evidence that until now has been sparse. These insights, coupled with previous human epidemiological studies, suggest that paternal environmental effects may play a more important role in complex diseases such as diabetes and heart disease than previously believed.
    • You don’t need to do drugs when you have the Internet at your fingertips.
    • Not everyone appreciates modern art.

      Spanish police say thieves behind one of Spain’s largest art thefts sold one of the pieces, a sculpture valued at more than $1 million, to a scrap metal yard for about $40.

      The sculpture by Basque footballer turned artist Eduardo Chillida was part of a collection of 35 prized works of Spanish art, including a Picasso drawing, stolen on Nov. 27 from a warehouse on Madrid’s outskirts.

    • On Friday, 21 May 2010, a lottery ticket sold at a convenience store in Newfoundland bore the seven winning numbers that would have entitled its holder to the $30 million prize on that night’s drawing. Would have, but didn’t, because the lucky ticket was voided by its purchaser in a fit of frugality.
    • Despite Carrie Fisher’s recent acknowledgment of cocaine on the set of The Empire Strikes Back, we’re pretty sure that everyone on the right side of the Force would tell you to just say no to drugs. (With the exception of Han Solo, who’d probably tell you’re to just say no to smuggling drugs on any ship other than the Millennium Falcon.)
    • JIDDA, Saudi Arabia — It is an architectural absurdity. Just south of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, the Muslim world’s holiest site, a kitsch rendition of London’s Big Ben is nearing completion. Called the Royal Mecca Clock Tower, it will be one of the tallest buildings in the world, the centerpiece of a complex that is housing a gargantuan shopping mall, an 800-room hotel and a prayer hall for several thousand people. Its muscular form, an unabashed knockoff of the original, blown up to a grotesque scale, will be decorated with Arabic inscriptions and topped by a crescent-shape spire in what feels like a cynical nod to Islam’s architectural past. To make room for it, the Saudi government bulldozed an 18th-century Ottoman fortress and the hill it stood on.
    • Barbara McQuade, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, said that Steven Campbell, 32, was executing a federal search warrant Oct. 18 when he stole and hid about $46,785 in cash that had been recovered.
    • However, some netizens posted completely different information on various well-known discussion forums and microblogs throughout the country claiming that, on the morning of December 25th, Qian Yunhui was held and pressed down to the ground by 5 people along the Zhaiqiao Village section of the Hongnan public road. Then, he was run over by a construction truck, which was driving in the wrong direction. Photographs that were posted afterward showed that there was indeed a construction truck with the license plate K5B323, crushing a man over his neck, the man’s body lay underneath the truck’s tire, a scene too horrifying to look at.
    • Tensions have been running high here ever since the night of December 6th, when a soccer fan named Egor Sviridov was killed, allegedly by a group of eight men from the Caucasus, a region between the Black and Caspian Seas whose residents are stereotyped much like Italian-Americans once were in the United States: as dark-haired, swarthy, passionate southerners with a taste for organized crime. Their complexions are why Russians call them “black,” or, worse, “blackasses.” When the Soviet Union collapsed, many Caucasians—but also ethnic Russians, Ukrainians, and others—began migrating to Moscow, increasingly the center of commerce and opportunity. The day after the killing, rumors began to circulate that other Caucasians had bribed officials to release the presumptive perpetrators from jail. Sviridov’s fellow soccer fans, enraged at the corrupt police and the alleged Caucasian killers, rioted and closed off one of Moscow’s biggest thoroughfares. The police arrested no one.
    • As part of an international criminal probe into computer attacks launched this month against perceived corporate enemies of WikiLeaks, the FBI has raided a Texas business and seized a computer server that investigators believe was used to launch a massive electronic attack on PayPal, The Smoking Gun has learned.

      The FBI investigation began earlier this month after PayPal officials contacted agents and “reported that an Internet activist group using the names ‘4chan’ and “Anonymous” appeared to be organizing a distributed denial of service (“DDoS”) attack against the company,”

    • Some water in a river on Vancouver Island has turned neon green, prompting an investigation by B.C. Environment Ministry officials.

      Residents living near the Goldstream River west of Victoria notified authorities Wednesday and took pictures of a 400-metre section of the river as it flowed by, looking like anti-freeze.

    Smokey Joe’s High Ride (1984)


    “Smokey Joe’s High Ride… seems to originate from the early-1980s, and uses the emerging video game craze as its tool of instruction. Four kids pass time in a video arcade, debating whether or not they should get blasted before heading off to the big party, when a new game suddenly materialises before their eyes. The big shot (and driver) amongst the group decides he must try the new game, “Smokey Joe’s High Ride”, which features — surprise, surprise — four kids in a car, on their way to a party. With each successive level, the drive gets progressively more stoned, making it harder to dodge the pedestrians, trains, and oncoming vehicles. Thanks to the harsh lessons dished out by this crappy game, the gang decides they better not indulge in anything until they arrive safely at their destination.” –arcade-museum.com
