I don't think I've ever heard an autotuned spoof song I didn't like.
There's this very disturbing set of studies where about half the articles printed in Science and Nature magazines, the two leading publications, involved experiments that could not be repeated by anybody.

I have a confession. Given my recent ticketing fiasco at the hands of the local police, I get a strange sense of satisfaction seeing everyday citizens fighting the police. I'm awful, I know.

I wouldn't feel too bad. Way back when I was young the local parking inspector would give children a ride up the Main Street on the back of his scooter and go into shops to warn people who were parked at expired meters, rather than just giving a ticket.

Local police were respected and were reasonable in enforcing laws. Unfortunately they have become almost a paramilitary arm of the tax office over the decades. We now have speed cameras, red light cameras, bus lane cameras, vehicle separation cameras and fines for almost everything.

Unfortunately this will get worse as our economy deteriorates....

Unless they just saw the police in those cars rough someone up who didn't deserve it, the people in that video are acting like spoiled dipshits throwing a tantrum. Hell, the police might have been trying to get to an assault, or a rape. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that all those people blocking the cop car would be calling the police if they needed them.

Fortunately that dude was there to disarm him, seemingly immediately.

It's like that scene in Generation Kill (everything that is violent and retarded seems to have a Generation Kill corollary), where the guy was getting chewed out for losing his helmet and points out that "at least I didn't lose a fucking entire supply truck." This cop lost his rifle AND his truck.

I should watch Generation Kill. I’ve read the book, and only made it through one episode of the show.

Like this former ESPN reporter, who enjoyed rioting in the poor neighborhoods, but freaked out when they came to his gated community.
