1/19    Creepiest video ever?  Especially the end.
        \_ What is wrong with Patriotism?
           \_ Pledging alligiance to a PERSON is not patriotism.  Pledging to
           \_ Pledging allegiance to a PERSON is not patriotism.  Pledging to
              be a servant, is not patriotism.
              \_ Do you have a problem with the Oath of Enlistment as well?
                 \_ Swearing to support the Constitution is not the same as
                    swearing to support a person. -op
                    \_ "I do solemnly swear ... that I will obey the orders
                        of the President of the United States..."
                       Compare with:
                       "I swear to be a servant to the President and all
                       Both of these oaths swear fealty to the President
                       (the office, not the person).
        \_ It was sweet.  Right up until the end, which I agree, was pretty
           creepy. -phuqm  (sweet as in nice, not sweet as in "cool" )

1/19    I hate my newspaper.  The Obama inaguration has been on the front page
        for four days so far.  WTF? How is that even news, let alone front
        page news?  Let alone 4 days worth of front page news?
        \_ Presidential inaugurations are always front page news, aren't they?
        \_ didn't you get the memo? racism is over, we can now tell them
           what we really think of Rap and R&B!!
        \_ All this pageantry seems unnecessary.  Just swear the poor bastard
           in, thank him for volunteering, and let him get on with his
           really, really hard job.

1/19    Mirror's Edge review:  meh
        Great tech demo, not a very good game.
        \_ Agreed. Graphics and visual style were really, really good, but the
           plot was utter shit. The parkour was pretty fun, but in the end, all
           it really was was Parkour: The Game. --t
