"Anglo Saxons came to Australia in chains," he told the chat show Cairo Today, "while we paid our way and came in freedom. We are more Australian than them. Australia is not an Anglo-Saxon country - Islam has deep roots in Australian soil that were there before the English arrived."

"I do think you should ask a couple of questions: Do you hate Australians and do you believe in the Western way of life? We should stop the 50% Australians. If you want to be an Australian then get rid of your other passports."

Crossbow and a will

Seoul - A former South Korean professor shot a judge in the stomach with a crossbow in an apparent protest against one of his rulings, police investigators said on Tuesday.

Kim Myong-Ho, a former mathematics professor at a Seoul university, faces charges of attempted murder for the attack outside the judge’s home late on Monday, police said.

"Police plan to seek an arrest warrant for the attacker on charges of attempted murder," Kim Yong-Sik, a detective handling the case at the Songpa police in southern Seoul, told AFP.

The shooting was apparent payback after Seoul High Court judge Park Hong-Woo upheld on Friday a ruling denying Kim reinstatement to his job.

Kim, sacked from his job in 1995, was waiting outside the judge’s home with a crossbow, bolts, knife and a rope, the detective alleged.

The judge is in hospital in a stable condition.

In a lawsuit dating back to 1996, Kim has unsuccessfully sought reinstatement to his job at the university, according to police who have been questioning him since the attack.

Kim lost his case at a lower court and the High Court upheld the ruling on Friday after he appealed against the decision.

He was allegedly sacked by the school authorities for slandering his colleagues and for negligence in research, reports have said.

He claims he was unfairly fired because he had disclosed fallacy in a college admission test and possible corruption in the administration.

postmodernism -2.1

Morning Edition, January 16, 2007 AA A company selling Wrigley’s gum wanted music for a commercial in Russia. It went to an English company, and bought a catchy tune. The commercials aired in Moscow, until the Chinese embassy called to ask why the Chinese national anthem was used to sell gum. The company calls it a "misunderstanding."

yo-ho yo-ho, a pirate’s life for me


All I have to say about this is:




This is absolutely ridiculous [and great]. No, there’s no Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom here - or any other actors playing pirates, or even real pirates [at least not the peg-leg having, eye patch wearing, ship having type]. What I am talking about here is The Pirate Bay, a torrent site currently based in Sweden [or one of the other countries that has basically no internet piracy laws]. They’re currently in negotiations to ‘acquire’ the micronation of Sealand [they can’t actually ‘purchase’ it legally, as principalities cannot be sold - but the family in control of the small nation are taking bids for a ‘transfer of ownership’] - off the cost of England.


Here’s some history on Sealand, from the nation’s website:

Sealand was founded as a sovereign Principality in 1967 in international waters, six miles off the eastern shores of Britain. In late June of 2006, the island suffered a devastating fire which destroyed much of the country’s administrative centre and the main power generation facility which serves its population and industries. Fortunately, back-up systems exist which permit its activities to continue but the disaster has compromised significantly the quality of life of its inhabitants and the continued development of the island’s economic and social growth.

The history of Sealand is a story of a struggle for liberty. Sealand was founded on the principle that any group of people dissatisfied with the oppressive laws and restrictions of existing nation states may declare independence in any place not claimed to be under the jurisdiction of another sovereign entity. The location chosen was Roughs Tower, an island fortress created in World War II by Britain and subsequently abandoned to the jurisdiction of the High Seas. The independence of Sealand was upheld in a 1968 British court decision where the judge held that Roughs Tower stood in international waters and did not fall under the legal jurisdiction of the United Kingdom. This gave birth to Sealand’s national motto of E Mare Libertas, or "From the Sea, Freedom" [source].


So basically, The Pirate Bay’s plan is to get their hands on this micronation - and use it as a new base of operations for their torrent site. The thinking here is that if they control the country, then they can simply have no laws regarding internet piracy and downloading, and allow themselves to serve torrents to anybody who wants to use the service.

My two thoughts on this [other than how incredibly gangster this move is] are that, 1] this opens the door for other companies to come up with similar plans - while a torrent site is barely hurting anyone, this could be done by a more dangerous and nefarious group, and/or 2] the US or Britain, or someone, invades / cuts the power / kills their internet…whatever - shuts the whole operation down leaving The Pirate Bay stuck with an old British naval platform.

Either way, I’d like to give it up to the [future] Pirates of Sealand - good luck, my ninjas.


Quite honestly, I don’t want to hate - if MNP was ever able to purchase it’s own NATION, however small…I’d be a ghost.
