Okay, it gets even better.

So the Lulz guys realize that the other hackers are serious about exposing them, so they try to bail, hoping to keep their reputation intact. It was like “OH MANZ WE DONE THX FOR THE LULZ.”

But the other hacker group goes through with their threat, because on the Internet, you either put up or shut up. LulzSec shut up, but the Team Poison folks put up. And they put A LOT up.

This is why you don’t fuck with the Internetz. The Internet never forgets.

LulzSec Gets Hacked

Look, I’m all for hacking into systems to prove weaknesses in the systems. Or when companies are obviously behaving badly and need a kick in the nuts (see Sony). But it is a bit irritating when you guys take down services that my lifestyle depends on. Or ride on the coattails of real hackers. Or claim that what you do is really what the rest of the Black Hat community does.

So it’s no surprise someone attacked the LulzSec dudes.  I think that there are people who personally view LulzSec as having big heads now, and they needed to be knocked down a peg. Which is cool and stuff. It’s kind of a wake up call –  “Hey, while you were out knocking down stuff we came along and knocked down your stuff. What you do is not art, or even close to real hax. Just sayin’ lolz.”

Nothing wrong with Hacker Warz, honestly. Having sat on the Black Hat side for awhile, I know for a fact that LulzSec was more of a hobby for some random people who think they are real hackers. You can’t win respect for claiming fame. IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY.

So, the Republican primary field just expanded again, with the announcement that Jon Huntsman will enter the race for President. An ex-diplomat to China and a former Governor of Utah, you’d think he’d be okay. Granted he’s a moderate like Romney.

Or he was, until he entered the race.

Of course, he immediately started pandering to the far right. Come on, dude, who the fuck cares about the far right? I don’t. I care about issues. Real issues. Issues that matter, not the retarded moral issues that neo-Cons bitch about.

Not that we should be worried. He has about as much chance as Ron Paul does, or as much chance as John Kerry did in 2004. Seriously, his entire campaign, rhetoric and demeanor reminds me of John Kerry. He’ll talk us to death about non-absolutes and flip-flop like a carp on hot cement.

I’m almost certain now the entire political field for the GOP is filled with old insane people. For example - You have Grandpa McCain rambling on, with no idea WTF he’s talking about any more. You have Chris Christie demolishing New Jersey in a clear smash-and-grab governorship while the people begin sharpening their pitchforks and lighting torches. Then you have Rick Scott in Florida who is asking (almost demanding) everyone send in a letter of how awesome he is because public opinion has literally turned against him (with a creep picture lol).

Yeah, I cast a no-confidence vote the entire Republican party.

It’s not that an older woman was killed by a cow that makes me feel bad. It’s that her 23 month-old grandson was with her. I can’t imagine how that kid is going to feel since he saw his grandmother get killed by a cow.

Kid: “Momo?”
Parent: “I’m sorry, honey, but she’s gone to Heaven now.”

I’d be devestated, honestly. And scarred for life around livestock.

Hey, when your sports team loses a championship, can you please not go trash your city? Being a true sportsman – a true sports fan – means losing gracefully and anticipating the rivalry of next year.

Not setting cars on fire and rioting.

I’m not picking on Vancouver, although I linked to photos of Vancouver’s riots. I’m talking to all fans everywhere. US fans are just as bad – especially after Super Bowls and NBA Championships. I don’t understand this fanatical stupidity that seems to be sweeping the world. If it’s not religion, it’s sports.

Motherfuckers being motherfuckers.

I love it when people wag fingers at me when I use the term “ultra-religious” or “ultra-Conservative.” Usually it’s to tell me that they are religious and conservative but they don’t prescribe to that particular belief/action. Well, then, you are not ULTRA anything. Are you? *rolls eyes*

Look, people – the term ultra has been attributed by socioligists to extremist behavior. So when I say ULTRA-Conservative or ULTRA-religious, I mean the people who are extremists in those groups. It’s not my fault that you haven’t kept up with the proper terminology or vernacular when we have discussions of a social nature. Maybe you wouldn’t get offended if you paid attention.

Also, religious and faithful are not mutually conclusive. You can be religious and not faithful (you can do everything the religious organization tells you without believing it in your heart). You can be faithful but not religious (you can believe in something in your heart but not do everything the religious organization tells you). These are separate terms. Somewhere, people started equating the two as the same thing (maybe because they take dictionaries literally without reference). Religious means following doctrine set by an organization (usually one revolving around religion).  Faithful means remaining true to the beliefs you possess. The key here is belief – too many people assume that someone acting religiously believes. There are so many people who act religiously but hide the fact they don’t believe. They often take advantage of others.

End of lesson. Don’t lecture me like you’re my mother when it’s evident you haven’t actually read up on these things (theology and sociology).

New Comic: Saint’s Way

It just started, and I have no idea what exactly it’s about, but I think this one will be a winner if the art and story keep impressing me:

Saint’s Way

1. There is an alien invasion about to start in New York.
2. There is a super-strong child running around alone. In New York.
3. There is an empath/bounty-hunter about to chase the child with a strangely colored chick riding along. In New York.

Either way, it can only get better, I think.

So, here’s the score in Winsconsin:

- Six Republican state senators are up for recall votes. The board – which sports quite a few Republicans – approved the petitions, since they had enough legitimate signatures.

- No Democratic state senators are up for recall votes. The board – which suports quite a few Republicans – denied the petitions because there appears to be a clear case of fraudulent activity in collecting signatures.

Okay, when your party is down and out because everyone is slowly growing to hate your party, you DO NOT attempt to do something even more damning/illegal. Holy f’ing shit. HOW HARD IS IT TO DO THINGS THE RIGHT WAY???

Note: I’m hard on Republicans because they were my former party of choice. All you neo-Cons are like, “You should go easy on them and give them another chance.” 

Look, they came along and like kicked me in the nuts while laughing. I bailed because who wants to get kicked in the nuts repeatedly? So now I hold them up to harsher standards, because I want to get the old party back. And right now, they are doing a really, really shitty job of even getting a drop of my respect back.

Slouch Socks

So like I was sitting there, and someone mentioned 80′s fashions and their pet peeves. Wall o’ Hair, white jeans, etc. So I waited for a little bit to see if anyone mentioned my peeve, and since no one did, I mentioned it -

“I hated the multi-layered socks. You know – when women wore like three pairs of socks, and then pulled each layer down so you could see the layer underneath. Usually coordinated with their shirts or whatever,” I casually threw this out there.

“Slouch socks,” a good-looking female co-worker replies.

“Excuse me?” I say because she caught me off-guard.

Slouch socks. They were slouch socks. I know since I used to wear them all the time,” she says.

“Oh, yeah, I would have complained if I dated you,” I say to her.

“Mmmm, that would have been nice. To have dated you when I was in high school, I mean,” she says.

“I’m not sure what other thing I … wait? Did you … was that …?” I was looking at her like this – >_>

“Ha ha ha, guess you’ll never know,” she says laughing.

>_<

EDIT: Oh, while I was looking up the story about a guy rafting down our Missouri River in a kiddie pool, I found this – a flash mob shows up a kid’s soccer tournament. It was in Denmark but holy crap that was awesome!

EDIT x 2: The guy in the kiddie pool was drunk, and people narc’ed on him because “It looked dumb/unsafe.” He’s a real looker from Missouri, too. LOL
