North Korea defeats Sony Pictures

North Korea defeats Sony Pictures

Sony Pictures has made official what has been painfully obvious to everybody since yesterday morning, when hackers threatened to blow up movie theaters if The Interview was released next week. The studio has officially scrapped its release plans. Sony had little choice here, after the major theater chains announced earlier today they would not display the film given the threatening circumstances.

Liberal Democrat’s David Leyonhjelm is kind of a twat

Liberal Democrat’s David Leyonhjelm is kind of a twat

A PRO-guns Senator believes Australia is a “nation of victims” because citizens, like the hostages in the Sydney siege, were unable to properly defend themselves.

According to the Liberal Democrat’s David Leyonhjelm, those held against their will were helpless because they were unable to arm themselves.

“What happened in that cafe would be most unlikely to have occurred in Florida, Texas, or Vermont, or Alaska in America, or perhaps even Switzerland as well,” Senator Leyonhjelm told ABC Radio — adding at least “one or two” there would have had a concealed gun.

“That nutcase who held them all hostage wouldn’t have known they were armed and bad guys don’t like to be shot back at,” he said.

This is so stupid it makes my balls hurt. This mong wants us to have guns like America, because ONE guy went on a rampage. First one we’ve had in years. Unlike America who’s had around 250 shootings in the last year. IT TOTALLY MAKES US SAFE.

Boffins put a live brain in a robot

Extending the connectome of C Elegans to a robot, displays behaviors we observe in the living organism and allows researchers to study the connectome from sensory input to motor output in real world environments.

Blah blah, so they put a worm brain in a robot and it does stuff. I find this creepy as yesterday I played Wolftenstien and I had to squish the brain of my friend who was in a robot trying to kill me. If that is not a lesson enough, then I don’t know what is.

Also, apparently this robot switches between screaming “Kill me, life is pain” and trying to kill all humans. Pretty ace actually.

#illridewithyou

Rachael Jacobs’ simple offer to walk with a Muslim woman as they got off a Brisbane train on Monday sparked a social media campaign under the hashtag #illridewithyou.

Overwhelmed by interest in her gesture, Ms Jacobs has agreed to share her story with Fairfax Media rather than be interviewed, in the hope the focus can then remain on the victims of the Sydney siege and their families.

As news of the siege unfolded, I scrolled through updates on my phone, searching for the latest information. My brother works in the city of Sydney. My husband’s office is a government building near Martin Place. I knew all were safe and sound, but I wanted to know more.

At this point I saw a woman on the train start to fiddle with her headscarf.

Confession time. In my Facebook status, I editorialised. She wasn’t sitting next to me. She was a bit away, towards the other end of the carriage. Like most people she had been looking at her phone, then slowly started to unpin her scarf.

Tears sprang to my eyes and I was struck by feelings of anger, sadness and bitterness. It was in this mindset that I punched the first status update into my phone, hoping my friends would take a moment to think about the victims of the siege who were not in the cafe.

To my special friend who wanted lunch. #illridewithyou

Seriously, Australia is stepping up after this act of villainy. We are hearing about the heroics of Tori Johnson, the great work of Katrina Dawson. I see people not joining the hate bandwagon of fanatical minorities like the ADL and their leader Racist Ralph. I see that criminal fuckwad being called our as the criminal he is. Not some holy warrior. Just a pathetic loser who we shall soon forget. Keep it up Australia.

Rupert Murdoch gets flamed for tweeting congrats to the Daily Terrorgraph

Rupert Murdoch gets flamed for tweeting congrats to the Daily Terrorgraph

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s first tweet after the Sydney hostage crisis ended didn’t mention the victims – just congratulations for one of his tabloid newspapers.

“AUST gets wake-call with Sydney terror. Only Daily Telegraph caught the bloody outcome at 2.00 am. Congrats,” Murdoch tweeted.

His tweet prompted a flood of criticism on Twitter, with people angry he bragged about his own newspaper rather than mentioning the victims.

“You’d think @rupertmurdoch would be having another of his humble days. But he’s actually boasting about the Telegraph coverage. Disgraceful,” author Mike Carlton said.

Haron Monis was nothing more than a criminal, troll, conman and sex offender

Haron Monis was nothing more than a criminal, troll, conman and sex offender

Straight up. This guy is a cunt and the world is a better place with him gone. It is a crying shame he took two good people with him.

Before Munis Haron, the Sydney hostage-taker, became an Islamist combatant, he was the managing director of a tourist agency in Iran who fled the country with about $200,000 US dollars of customers’ money, Manoto News has learned.

Source

On 14 March 2014, Haron was arrested and charged with sexually and indecently assaulting a young woman who went to his consultancy in Wentworthville, New South Wales, for “spiritual healing”, after seeing an advertisement in a local newspaper. Haron claimed he was an expert in “astrology, numerology, meditation and black magic” services.

Source

Perhaps most notably, his poison pen caused national outrage when he wrote “offensive and deplorable” letters to the families of dead Australian soldiers. That was, he claimed, a protest at Australian troops in Afghanistan.

Source

And worse, he was on bail.

A reporter at Tuesday morning’s press conference with the NSW Premier posed the uncomfortable question about the Martin Place siege that will now surely become the subject of further investigation: “How was this gunman free on bail?”.

It was bound to happen. It’s not even over and the dickheads are out in force. The Australian Defence League are a bunch of nationalistic fuckwads (internet warriors more pathetic than me). The hostage crisis is not over, no one knows shit. Yet these assholes are calling on members to rise up and riot. Fuck this group.

The Appeal of the Appeal

The Appeal of the Appeal

I was wrong! Not the high court yet. But if this appeal goes though…

Oh lordy. The individual is now appealing of the appeal of the appeal. Apparently I am such a terrible-horrible person and writing posts like this is considered TERRORISIM, we are going for round four or five of this stupidity (i’ve lost count).

Why? Well my lawyers did such a sterling job pointing out the fail in the persons case, that they fled the court crying. I am not making that up. So the judge rightly dismissed the case, because you just don’t leave a court hearing when you feel like it. But this person decided to appeal that dismissal. We fought that and it was eventually dismissed as incompetent. Did I mention this person is a solicitor?

But now they are trying again and if this is successful, we are off to the high court of Australia faster than you can Malicious prosecution. They are hoping to get a 1 year protection order against me. One that would instantly time out as it would have only been valid for one year back in 2010. Yes, that’s the level of stupidity we are dealing with.

So keep checking back. I will be posting updates as we go. I’m not going to be bullied into silence by the likes of people like this. I am not breaking any laws, if I had. I dare say the court would have found me guilty of something in the last four years.

Religion of peace strikes Sydney

Religion of peace strikes Sydney

A bunch of criminal religious fucktards have taken a bunch of people hostage in Sydney. They’ve held up banners (the black flag) spouting that Alan is the true god or someshit. The flag is not ISIS.

Fuck these people. Man, I thought religious door knockers where annoying. These wankers take the cake.

I hope they spend a long, long time in jail.

Sydney’s CBD is in lockdown as police negotiate with a gunman who stormed into the busy Lindt Chocolate Cafe in Martin Place on Monday morning and took customers and staff hostage.

In extraordinary and terrifying scenes, hostages could be seen through the cafe’s windows with their hands held in the air, while heavily armed police surrounded the building.

Credonia Mwerinde, mass murdering whore

Credonia Mwerinde, mass murdering whore

Credonia Mwerinde (born 1952) was the high priestess and co-founder of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God, a sect that splintered from the Roman Catholic Church in Uganda. Before founding the movement she was a shopkeeper, brewer of banana beer, and a prostitute. Mwerinde was also a member of a religious group that was devoted to the Virgin Mary. She and two other group members approached Joseph Kibweteere in 1989, and said that the Virgin Mary had instructed him to take them in. Kibweteere did, and he was particularity struck by her claim of a Marian apparition near his home, which related to a vision he himself had five years earlier. Together Mwerinde and Kibweteere would found the Movement in 1989.

 

Mwerinde was part of the triumvirate that lead the sect, which included Kibweteere, and Dominic Kataribaabo, an excommunicated priest. However Paul Ikazire, a sect leader who later returned to the Catholic Church, described her as being the true power in the Movement. He said, “The meetings were chaired by Sister Credonia, who was the de facto head of the group. Kibwetere was just a figurehead, intended to impose masculine authority over the followers and enhance the cult’s public relations.”Mwerinde was also the source of the sect’s predictions of an apocalypse and the pronouncements that salvation could only be found with the Virgin Mary’s messages.

 

The Movement grew rapidly and at its height membership was estimated as being between 1,000 and 4,000. Defrocked Catholic priests and nuns joined and worked as theologians. The apocalypse was predicted to occur with the advent of the new millennium. After the Movement was evicted from Rwashamaire, it moved to an estate her father owned in Kanungu District. With the year 2000 approaching sect members sold their property and turned the profits over to group leadership.

 

When the world did not end by January 1, a crisis occurred in the Movement. Members began to ask questions and demand the return of their money and property. Police investigators believe that Movement leadership, particularly Mwerinde, began a purge of their followers culminating in the destruction of their Kanangu Church in a fire that killed all 530 inside. Hundreds of bodies were also found at Movement properties across southwestern Uganda. Initially believed to be a mass suicide, police later stated that they were investigating it as a mass murder.
Mwerinde is assumed to have survived the church conflagration. Ugandan authorities believe that she left the sect’s Kanangu compound in the early hours of March 17. In April 2000, police issued an international warrant for her arrest in connection to the sect killings.
In September 2011, Mwerinde and several other prognosticators who incorrectly predicted various dates for the end of world were jointly awarded an Ig Nobel Prize for “teaching the world to be careful when making mathematical assumptions and calculations”.

The abandoned Australian

The abandoned Australian

In the 1980s David Glasheen was the chairman of a Sydney-based resource syndicate specializing in Papua New Guinean gold mining. He was also active in the stock market, amassing a fortune that peaked at around US $28.4 million, which he sank into luxury harbor-view real estate. That’s when the market sank him.

On October 19, 1987, the Dow Jones dropped a record 508 points, costing Glasheen about $7.25 million. This was the Black Monday crash (known as the Black Tuesday crash in Australia due to the time difference) that killed the 80s boom in a single day. But for Glasheen, the effects dragged on. “The next few years were really bloody hard,” he recalls. “My wife lost a lot of money, and she blamed me for most of it. Basically the family fell apart in 1991.” Glasheen ended up in court, lost, and then the banks moved in. By 1993 most of his money was gone, and he was looking for an escape.

Later that year, he met a woman from Zimbabwe who was recently divorced. They were at a similar place emotionally, he said, so when their friend mentioned an available lease at Restoration Island, an undeveloped 64-acre pristine island off the top of Australia’s east coast, they jumped at the opportunity and set up there in a little beachside shack. The plan, eventually, was to build a 60-room luxury resort.

Australian GP co-payment could hit $100 in two years

Australian GP co-payment could hit $100 in two years

The average upfront cost of a 15-minute consultation with a GP could exceed $100 within two years under the federal government’s proposed changes to Medicare, the Doctors Reform Society says.

The society, a lobby group that supports publicly funded universal health care, says the Abbott government’s plan to reduce the Medicare rebate for doctors by $5 and freeze it until 2018 is promoting a “return to a failed privatised system of the past” with doctors free to charge what the market will bear.

Society national president and GP Con Costa said extending the current two-year-long freeze on Medicare rebates for another four years would hit GP clinics’ budgets hard, driving many doctors away from bulk-billing and  into increasing their fees for patients who do not have concession cards.

Plane turns into vomit comet

Plane turns into vomit comet

A Philadelphia-bound U.S. Airways flight had to make an emergency landing in Rome when passengers and crew members began vomiting all over the plane in a scene straight out of your worst nightmare.

Authorities say the Airplane!-esque scene began when a “strange odor” wafted through plane, which took off from Israel’s Ben Gurion airport Friday night.

Trapped inside a metal room with the noxious odor and an obviously insufficient ventilation system, passengers and crew members alike began throwing up—prompting a chain reaction of vomit down the aisle.

Greenpeace activists fuck up the Nazca lines

Greenpeace activists fuck up the Nazca lines

Greenpeace can get a little aggressive with its tactics. That doesn’t mean that it’s not fighting for a good cause! But after the organization marched through the sacred Nazca Lines etched into the Peruvian desert for a climate protest, capturing it all on camera with a drone, you have to wonder what the hell they were thinking. Greenpeace isn’t the best at thinking things through, though.

In fact, this is far from the first time Greenpeace has screwed up, though this latest episode of Greenpeace Being Reckless is particularly atrocious. The environmental group has a long, long history of insensitive or poorly-staged actions, ranging from big—like helping to destroy a GMO crop designed to prevent blindness—to small—like papering a small town with posters the day after a community cleanup.

In case you missed io9’s post about the outrage, here’s a recap: The environmental activists wanted to send a message to government officials from around with world who are attending a climate change conference in Lima this week. So they headed to the Nazca Desert, one of the most famous and archaeologically significant sites in Peru, to lay down a bunch of yellow banners that spelled out: “TIME FOR CHANGE! THE FUTURE IS RENEWABLE! GREENPEACE.”

Source

For those who don’t know. The Nazca lines are a series of images scrapped into the earth. The desert they are in has a thin dark colour of soil covering lighter sand underneath. These images are thousands of years old and REALLY FUCKING DELICATE. So much so, you cannot even wear normal shoes incase your footsteps create a new line. That is exactly what these fuckwits did. They even drove a fucking car up to it.

Do what I say, not as I do

Do what I say, not as I do

For years, a Twitter account bearing the name @ShamiWitness had been one of the most vocal online voices on the war in Syria. The person behind the account — which had 20,000 followers, including analysts in the Middle East and farther afield — appeared to have a vast knowledge of the conflict and had a surprisingly polite tone.

At some point, however, it became clear that Shami Witness wasn’t just an observer of the war. By the start of 2014, he had become a big supporter of the Islamic State: On Twitter, he would defend the Sunni militant group from detractors and offer support to people thinking of traveling to join its fight. As the Islamic State beheaded journalists and wrought terror on Iraq and Syria, many people who interacted with him online grew increasingly uncomfortable.

On Thursday evening, Britain’s Channel 4 News revealed that it had discovered the identity of Shami Witness. They reported that he was an executive named Mehdi living in Bangalore, with a Facebook page full of pictures of “pizza dinners with friends and Hawaiian parties at work.”
