Ohio University Shuts Down P2P Use

April 26, 2007 at 1:21 pm by  

ImageShackThere has been some real drama in the swivel household of late. My Life-Partner has been interviewing at various universities around the country which will determine where we live for the next several years. Ohio University has been at the top of that list, and was only narrowly discarded yesterday. Well, thank the godless universe for that! Athens, Ohio is going to be a ghost town within a decade, as they have decided that the RIAA’s wishes are more important than their enrollment numbers.

Here’s the skinny: Ohio University has been one of the most highly targeted campuses in the United States by the RIAA. Athens is a very small town, and there isn’t much to do there besides walking up and down Court Street, drunk on wine coolers, and listening to your iPod. (And probably the more bandwidth-taxing hobby of downloading porn and trying to tug one out before your roommate gets back from his CHEM lab) The RIAA has been working with the University to try and stem the tide with various “outreach” programs and dorky posters.…

Woman Dies After Camel Sits on Her

April 26, 2007 at 7:45 am by  

One of the owners of Mini-Akers Exotic Animals, Cathie Ake, was killed when one of the camels in her care crushed her to death after kicking her and then sitting on top of her. Cathie Ake and the camel named Polo were being filmed by a local TV station when during a break in filming, the camel became agitated and attacked Cathie. Polo then sat on her after she had fell under the animal. Cathie’s husband believes the camel was agitated by mating season.

The couple had just purchased the animal at an auction 3 weeks ago and were keeping the 1,800-pound animal in a 50 foot by 80 foot pen. Cathie’s husband is now finding a new home for Polo the Killer Camel.

Man Sentenced for Raping 9-Year-Old

April 25, 2007 at 1:46 pm by  

ABBEVILLE, S.C. — William Edward Ronca, 26, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the rape of a 9 year old girl. The girl, whom William admitted to having sex with once or twice a week for two years, ended up pregnant.

A school guidance counselor notified authorities after noticing the girl had become withdrawn and would not participate in school activities. She was then taken to a medical facility where it was then learned she was 7 months pregnant. She gave birth to the baby by Cesarean section and then given up for adoption.

Am I becoming so jaded after all these years of posting these stories, that it wasn’t the visions of this man having sex with a 9 year old, or the visions of a 9 year old girl giving birth that shocked me, but rather the fact that a guidance counselor actually noticed something was wrong with a kid?…

Five-year-old Monet Flugham was found hanging from a closet door by a jump rope. Police were called to the residence after the Monet’s grandmother found her unconscious. The medical examiner has ruled the death as an accident and earlier reports of foul play and sexual abuse have since been ruled out.

April 25, 2007 at 8:43 am by  

In 1993, 7 people were shot to death in a robbery of the Brown’s Chicken and Pasta restaraunt in Palatine, Illinois. The victims included the owners, Richard E.

GNotW: Videogames REDUCE Crime!

April 24, 2007 at 5:55 pm by  

Okay, okay, you have heard it so many times the other way around. “Videogames cause crime”, they all say. But I ask you, have they ever trotted Ross Perot out with some graphs and a pointer? No? Wanna know why? Because the statistics show the OPPOSITE to be true, and it is easier to talk out of your ass than it is to provide evidence. So here are my graphs…

First, let’s look at the amazing drop in crime rates that has taken place since 1993:

Oh, shit. How do we explain the sudden drop in all things horrible? Especially when teen pregnancy and drug rates also show a similar decline?

The city of New York is experiencing a rash of disappearances. These started within the homeless population, in particular, the homeless that dwell in the underground network of tunnels, subway lines and sewers that lie beneath the city. This is noticed by ex-con and soup kitchen worker, A.J. Shepherd (Daniel Stern), who notices that fewer and fewer of his regulars are coming up for air. A.J. reports this to deaf ears and cannot get anyone to take notice…but hell, these people are ignored when around, forgotten when they are not. But when reports start coming in of people being attacked and dragged into the sewers by monsters, the authorities can no longer ignore the problem.…

Defendant Not Guilty In Dungeon Rape Case

April 23, 2007 at 2:19 pm by  

“The verdict says it all.” stated Kenneth Hinson after he was escorted from the courtroom. Kenneth Hinson, 48 was facing a mandatory life sentence after being charged with the kidnapping, assault with the intent to kill, and the rape of two teenagers he was supposedly holding captive in an underground dungeon he had built in the back of his residence. Kenneth had also been convicted of raping a 12 year old girl in 1991.

During the six day trial, Kenneth took the stand and explained that there was no kidnappings and that the sex between him and the two females was consensual. He also stated that the reason why the two girls were making up the story was all a rouse to get to the stash of marijuana he kept in the underground room they were supposedly being held captive in.

1986 was a year of historically notable events. It was in 1986 that the world saw the tragic Challenger Disaster, the partial meltdown of the Soviet nuclear plant in Chernobyl and the year the Statue of Liberty got a much needed face lift. It was also the year that the Sherman Oaks Galleria of California played host to yet another movie. A movie that involved teenagers and killer mall robots. Yes, I am talking about the notorious film that a lot of us old folk will remembers sitting on the local video store shelf, Chopping Mall (aka Killbots).…

Xbox 360 Transfer Cable Coming?

April 20, 2007 at 12:13 pm by  

I’m sure I’m not the only 360 owner that was a little upset when they heard about the Elite. I can do without every feature on it except one… The 120gb HDD. The thing is though, the thought of transferring the few files I can onto a memory card and transferring them over onto a larger HDD and then saying good riddance to the rest of my files seemed a bit perplexing. No… Actually, I just wouldn’t be able to do it. Would I be forever doomed to the measly 20gbs that came stock with my 360? Surely I will eventually run out of room, I mean I’m down to less than 5gbs right now. What if I run out?

Well luckily it looks like we may be able to avoid all of these problems. “Leaked” photos have surfaced showing a Xbox 360 Transfer Cable. It will supposedly allow consumers to transfer files from their tiny little 20gb drive to a new 120gb drive. Now it wont come with the Elite but perhaps it will come with the 120gb HDD when you buy it separately.…

Ozzy Osbourne – Black Rain

Ozzy Osborne – Black Rain

Artist: Ozzy Osborne
Release Date: May 22, 2007
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Epic
ASIN: B000PA9Q4G

Sobriety kills creativity. It seems to be a rule, or at least with musicians. Nearly every time a musician or band gets sober their next album is far from what previous efforts were. Though their legacies usually remain intact, many times their careers plummet because of it. Well it looks like we will once again get to test the rule, and this time it will be the Prince of Darkness himself who tries to break it.

‘Black Rain’, Ozzy Osbourne’s newest album, is due out on May 22nd. Ozzy recently told Billboard that the follow-up to ‘Down to Earth’ is the first album he has every done sober. Ozzy is infamous for the years in which he would do just about any crazy stunt just to one up the other guy. In recent years however, he has become famous for being the father figure on the reality show ‘The Osbournes’.…

She Awoke to Find Feces in Her Vagina

April 19, 2007 at 9:23 am by  

Jefferson County, TX — That sentence alone could almost turn the strongest of stomachs and the lawyers defending Dr. Donald Long, a doctor accused of performing a botched episiotomy, thought so too and decided to settle with Sara Wallace rather than let a jury hear it.

According to the Wallace’s, on Aug. 16, 2003, Sara Wallace was a patient at Mid-Jefferson Hospital in Nederland. Her physician was out of town when she went into early labor. The on-call doctor, Dr. Donald Long, was called in and delivered the baby in which he performed a third-degree episiotomy, a common medical procedure involving making cuts to the tissue between the anus and the vagina to aid in child birth.

The plaintiff’s lawyer, Mike McGown, states that after the procedure, Dr. Long stitched the wound but neglected to check for a rectovaginal fistula, a hole between the anus and vagina that is often the result of an episiotomy. He also neglected to inform the Wallaces that such a wound could form after procedure.

So you can imagine Sara’s surprise when she started having constant pain in her uterus region and eventually started passing stool through her vagina. …

Virginia Tech Shooter Played Counter-Strike

April 17, 2007 at 7:54 pm by

Oh, boy. Here we go. If you can make it to page 3 of the Washington Post’s lengthy article on the Virginia Tech shooting, you will find the following paragragh:

Several Korean youths who knew Cho Seung Hui from his high school days said he was a fan of violent video games, particularly Counterstrike, a hugely popular online game published by Microsoft, in which players join terrorism or counterterrorism groups and try to shoot each other using all types of guns.

Shit. This is bad. It means two things: First of all, media morons are going to confuse correlation with causality (as usual) and the traction made by the gaming industry over the past few years is going to disappear. Even worse, police officers and students at Virginia Tech are in for a hell-storm once Cho buys a few bigger guns with the loot he made off of his 32 kills, hits his spacebar, and re-spawns at some random point on campus.

And is it just me, or does this guy look a lot like swivel?…

Hot Summer for 360 Ahead!

April 17, 2007 at 2:51 pm by  

Better slap a 3rd party cooler on your 360, because this is going to be a hot, hot, hot summer for the popular console.

I know, I know, “Summer Gaming?” you ask. Yeah, summer gaming. For a change. It never ceases to baffle me that game companies don’t release more games during the summer, you know, when kids don’t have any homework to do and are sitting around the house bored all day. The movie studios long figured out that this was the time to entertain, and it looks like gaming companies are about to stumble into the same realization. And the XBox 360 looks to be the main beneficiary. Let’s make a list, shall we?ImageShack

EA’s “Skate” Looks to DeThrone Tony

April 17, 2007 at 10:48 am by  

[gamevideo 9695 video]

I have been a loyal fan of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise, but it has been like most real relationships. It is great in the beginning, and then, the more you find out about your partner, the more you start to hate them. At some point, you can barely even remember why you ever fell in love with them. But you keep going back, looking to re-capture that initial romance.

That is, until a better-looking replacement comes along, and you get that feeling all over again. Of course, “This time, I really, REALLY love you!” And that is the feeling I get from watching gameplay footage of “Skate”, EA’s upcoming foray into the exclusive gaming world of decks, tricks, and magic lines.

The great thing about the old THPS games was just the chill feeling of roaming a landscape looking for things to grind and jump off of. Eventually, though, the series kept adding so much crap in the landscape that you could jump up with your eyes closed, hit the TRIANGLE, and know that you were going to start grinding something.…
