Good News:
Washington State's governor kicks ten kinds of ass.

Bad News:

Supporting billions of dollars in future healthcare costs and untimely losses of possibly productive citizens isn't something I desire. Every man should live to be at least 80.

Really? I'd say 70, 75 tops...and even then, only if you're in really good health and stuff...I mean, living that long (like into your 90s and over) is just unnatural...I never want to be that old...Just clone my body now and scoop my brain into it later, I say!

>_>

Good News

Branson flips a 3 billion dollar hello to environmental waste. I tell you, that dude is like the passion of youth.  :lee:

http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/science/09/21/branson.global.warming.ap/index.html

But wait...

Doubleshot!

SPACEBALLS LIVES!

Bad News

Another religious swirlie. But hey, at least Benedict knows how to take a pot shot.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/5362788.stm

But wait...

Doubleshot!

SPACEBALLS CARTOON IS ON G4! NO!!

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/TV/09/21/television.brooks.reut/index.html

Great, so it'll be geared for people who absolutely adore the "Clerks" movies and other apathetic lamers who fuel G4's strategy to host video game shows with eye candy babes. I hope to god it's actually good, because Spaceballs needs to live.

Branson rocks. At his sons party, which was a Mad Hatter one, Paris Hilton asked if she could be Alice, so she could be "the star of the show". Branson, hearing about this, ordered all the waitresses to be dressed as Alice, and even gave Paris some drinks to serve after she entered.

Good News: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/5372458.stm It's out. If you have time to burn, read the comments to see what the Britons are thinking.

Bad News: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/5400570.stm , obviously. Another worthless coward has gone out with a bang.

I'm glad he's got another book coming out. I've read The Blind Watchmaker, and I highly recommend it. I was glad that most of the comments I read were pro reason, but there were still the stubborn voices of those who stick to their circular reasoning and disproven arguments. Hopefully this will be a positive step forward for humanity.

This week's issue of the Economist notes that a trend in the UK has reversed. Whereas London was traditionally moving away from religion in the past as country towns hung on to it, London is now becoming the spiritual center as the greater United Kingdom shuns it. I forget the reasons cited, but I think immigration and perhaps the ability to make "megachurches" (the new fad, with giant auditoriums) were mentioned.

You are reading an impressive amount of news, from multiple sources, ZeaLitY. You're on your way.
