    The University of Cincinnati's "free speech zone," which rendered the rest of the campus unfriendly to the stuff, is no more.

    Well, that's just great. Thanks a lot, Cinnci. That was the place for free speech. Now there's no zone where students can speech freely.

    What is this, Risk? Guess we'll be intervening in Australia soon.

  • Ska||

    You'll just stay away from Yakutsk if you know what's fucking good for you.

    I'm surprised we're not intervening in South America. While Australia/Indonesia is better, South America isn't bad, either.

    Kamchatka.

  • Pro Libertate||

    Are you kidding? That'll get crushed from all directions. Secure your base first.

  • Sudden||

    Sarah Palin was onto something. If you've got the North American Terrirtory locked down, it makes sense to invade Kamachatka if only to hold off the asian hordes. I always keep a good amount of troops in Kamachatka, reinforced with troops behind in Alaska/Yukon. I'll hold my NA possession using that while I storm south to take over the cocaine fields of glory.

    The Ukraine? Nah, it's a real country.

  • R C Dean||

    Does that mean The Ohio State University isn't a real university?

  • Pro Libertate||

    That's correct. I worked there, and it's not universal at all. More provincial. Nor does it encompass the state.

    This is the fundamental problem with Risk. I makes Australia way too strategically important.

  • Pro Libertate||

    I dunno, no one has ever successfully conquered the planet yet. Maybe that's because no prospective conquering nation has taken Australia?

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    They all say, "If that's what it takes I'll pass."

  • Pro Libertate||

    Not all of them. The Anschluss was Hitler's failed attempt to annex Australia. Unfortunately for him, he annexed Austria by mistake.

    DO NOT READ BOOKS CALLED DUNE OR ANY VARIATION THEREOF UNLESS WRITTEN BY FRANK HERBERT. THERE IS NO OTHER HERBERT BUT FRANK.

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    Oh. Ok. I think there were just two of those, and like 48 by the other guy.

    In the latest federal tactic for bypassing state medical-marijuana laws...

    I'm told legalization ballot initiatives are a tactic to get young people to the polls to vote Obama in November.

  • ||

    Is that the same obama who has been crushing dispensaries with an iron fist?

  • Pro Libertate||

    Yes, it's a tactic based on people being dumb.

  • BakedPenguin||

    Fuck. That's a good idea.

  • JW||

    It has a 100% success rate.

  • SIV||

    Based on some of the commenters drawn to HampersandR marijuana threads it's a brilliant idea.

  • The Hammer||

    Dave's not here, man.

  • ||

    I predict good results from this tactic.

  • Bobarian||

    I'm told crushing dispensary initiatives are a tactic to get old people to the polls to vote Obama in November.

  • VG Zaytsev||

    I'm told legalization ballot initiatives are a tactic to get young people to the polls to vote Obama in November.

    It's a twist on Rove's us of marriage protection (aka anti gay marriage) initiative in 2004 to boost Bush to victory.

    It won't work this time.

    Former Minnesota Governor — and, more importantly, "Predator" star — Jesse Ventura's endorsement of Gary Johnson's presidential candidacy was edited out of online videos by CNN.

    I wonder how much Johnson had to pay CNN to do it.

  • Nyarlathotep||

    Or perhaps CNN just realized that an endorsement from a 'roid-addled Troofer was a punishment they wouldn't inflict on a dog they hated.

  • Brett L||

    I wonder who the mole for the Johnson campaign at CNN is.

  • ||

    I wondered the same thing. Or someone at CNN likes ol' Gary.

  • crazyfingers||

    Um, Johnson needs all the help he can get. Ventura is more well-known by several orders of magnitude, and people who follow him might actually be able to be convinced to vote third party.

  • The Hammer||

    This.

  • OO=======D||

    Jesse Ventura is a loony.

    Pure ecstasy can be 'safe' for adults, health official says

    [B.C. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry] Kendall asserts the risks of MDMA — the pure substance originally synonymous with ecstasy — are overblown, and that its lethal dangers only arise when the man-made chemical is polluted by money-hungry gangs who cook it up.
  • T||

    No, man, ONDCP showed me a commercials that said ecstasy would kill me. And we all know ONDCP wouldn't lie, right?

  • The Hammer||

    Pure MDMA is absolutely safe for adults, so are mushrooms, LSD and weed. Even better when you mix them all together! Well, pick one of the mushrooms or LSD, otherwise you're just being wasteful.

  • T||

    The nitrous oxide is bad, though.

  • Sudden||

    No love for DMT? Damn craziest thing I even laid lungs on.

  • Pi Guy||

  • ||

    Mushrooms are not safe.

  • The Hammer||

    How?

  • RBS||

    A friend of mine drove through the mountains once, so that probably wasn't very safe.

  • JW||

    As long as he had his Oscillation Overthruster tuned correctly, that shouldn't have been a problem.

  • ||

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

  • jasno||

    Maybe if someone picked the wrong kind? Other than that, no.

  • The Hammer||

    Yeah. Ironically, the only mushrooms that are illegal are perfectly safe.

  • ||

    How?

    You eat the wrong kind, which look damn near identical to the right kind, and you die.

  • The Hammer||

    So stupidity is not safe.

  • SIV||

    To balance the state budget, California will:

    1. defer pension payments
    2. double-count a bunch of health care "savings" derived from increased environmental regulations
    3. join several other states to beg Obama for another state stabilization bailout

  • Ska||

    4. Send minimum tax bill notices to anyone who has thought about gold in the last six years, claiming that constitutes economic nexus to California.

  • Raston Bot||

    However, he said the city of Murrieta, which banned medical marijuana shops in 2005, began issuing a $2,500 fine for every day Greenhouse remained on the property. He said that persuaded him to begin an eviction process, but it took several months to complete. The city has sued Carter and wants him to pay $150,000 in fines, he said.

    What a bunch of fucking parasitic rent seekers.

    Police officer Ronald Schreffler testifies in court today that he wanted Jerry Sandusky to be charged and indicted back in 1998.

    The District Attorney at the time, Ray Gricar, apparently didn't agree. Gricar later mysteriously disappeared in 2005, and was never seen again.

  • John||

    That whole thing is weird. Penn State knew he was a monster. Sandusky was one of the most respected assistants in the country. Yet, he never got any head coaching offers. Not one. The college coaching fraternity is small. I think Penn State knew he was a monster and kind of put it out without saying why that you didn't want to hire him. The guy was ass raping kids for decades on campus. They had to have known about it even before 2002 and covered it up. Just sickening.

  • ||

    We have to keep those college sports going at any cost, don't you know!

  • DEG||

    Very odd. I remember someone that had many conversations with Ray Gricar saying that Gricar was more interested in crimes with victims (rape, burglary, vandalism, so on and so forth) than victimless crimes (drug use, violations of obscenity laws, so on and so forth). This is not to say Gricar's office didn't go after drug users, Gricar's office did but drug users weren't anywhere near its top priority.

    Anyways... since Gricar stated this type of crime was a priority for his office, I wonder why didn't agree.

    Looks like Erin Andrews had a boob job in preparation for her contract negotiations with ESPN.

    Don't click Sarcasmic. She is way too fat for you.

  • Pro Libertate||

    What's different about her? She's had that build as long as I can remember.

  • John||

    Her boobs seem to defy gravity. And they look a bit larger than they did in the infamous hotel shots.

  • Pro Libertate||

    She was pretty chesty back when she first worked with ESPN. I haven't seen the nude photos, and they may well be fake, but I don't see an obvious different in size.

  • John||

    I think she is still quite attractive. I like the curves.

  • ||

    It was a video and it wasn't fake. She was pissed about the invasion of privacy not because she claimed they were fake. The real conspiracy theory was whether she did it on purpose instead.

  • Pro Libertate||

    I meant her chest, not the video.

  • John||

    The guy who did it went to prison. So I think she was a legit victim. I wonder what kind of a massive settlement she got from the hotel. Talk about horrible security.

  • ||

    After my intensive investigation of video I have my doubts but I guess it would probably have come out in the criminal case.

  • John||

    I honestly thought she staged it when it came out. I just couldn't believe that a first rate hotel would have that incompetent of security. But I was wrong. She lives in Atlanta and used to come into a restaurant I frequented. The staff all said that she was actually super nice and down to earth. Not at all what you would expect.

    Corn became the engine for the massive surge in the quantities of cheaper food being supplied to American supermarkets: everything from cereals, to biscuits and flour found new uses for corn. As a result of Butz's free-market reforms, American farmers, almost overnight, went from parochial small-holders to multimillionaire businessmen with a global market.

    Corn subsidies are "free-market reforms"?!?!?

    Mr. Obama inherited a $1 trillion deficit from his Republican predecessor, "it's like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff," Mr. Obama said, winding up to his punch line as his audience tittered. "And then, just as you're sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab!"
    "That's what they do!" the president said, as the Democratic Party faithful crammed into the ballroom applauded, hooted and hollered. "I am not making this up!"

    - Barack Obama, June 12, 2012

    Today, President Obama celebrated Father’s Day the same way he celebrates every day: by eating his fill, then sticking someone else with the tab. Hanging out with two service members and two barbers at Kenny’s BBQ in Washington, D.C., Obama enjoyed pork ribs with hot sauce, greens, red beans, cornbread... the works. The total bill was some $55.58. Obama ran out before paying.

    2. Very small in size, weight, or thickness: The private sector job growth is finer than fucking frog hairs.

    In his little anti-capitalist mindset, the private sector is doing fine. It's in the shitter, and to him, that's just fine.

    More amusing is when it was reported that he "walked it back", he did no such thing. He commented that obviously the "economy" was not doing fine, blah blah er um blah.

    Skeletor was once presumed dead by FL election officials.

    "The Republican lawmaker revealed to a Tallahassee radio station Thursday that election officials in 2006 removed him from state voter rolls believing he was dead, the Associated Press reports."

    I thought Skeletor was Michael Chertoff's nickname...

    Can you see David Wright? Neither could we nor could the two 9 year olds in front of us. Apparently someone gave these hipsters Mets tickets four rows behind the Padres dugout. This went on for 5 innings. When the two 9 year olds’ father asked them politely to put their umbrella down because they were obstructing his kids’ view their response was “if i get sun cancer I’ll sue you…..”
    The dad then got security to whom they said “bring us a rule book to show us why we can’t have an umbrella up”. And “why can’t the kids move if they can’t see……”
    Finally after 5 innings and after numerous visits from security….they self righteously stormed off 8 rows back into the shade.
    Great site…..keep it up.

    From the comments at diehipster - listen to the contempt in Brian Williams' script. Love it!

    I know Zoe is a total hipster. But damn she is so cute. Something about brunettes with big blue eyes. You just can't resist them as a guy. It is Pavlovian.

  • ||

    Fuck those guys, though to be fair to hipsters (*barf*) obnoxious people at ballparks come in many flavors.

  • ||

    People really exist like this? If I believed in a God, I would pray to him to send me some of these fucks to exercise my fists.

    Hang 'em up in the basement like 120 lb skeleton bags and go to town.

    Put an old rug or something down first though.

  • Loki||

    I think I would have "accidentally" spilled my beer on them.

  • ||

    Umbrella....

  • Loki||

    Then I would have spilled it on their umbrella. The point is to annoy and piss them off enough that they move.

    Or better yet, hopefully the dude would be dumb enough to take a swing at me, but I doubt that hipsters would have the balls to do that.

    California's budget woes are attracting municipal-bond investors who see soaring yields as an attractive counter to the possibility that the state with the lowest SP rating just won't be able to pay its debts.

    And in other news, water is still wet.

  • Brett L||

    Mark my words, this is a placeholder for a story that's only going to get more fucked up as details emerge.

    "Police found a 5-year-old boy Wednesday sitting beside a large SUV with his hands tied and a blindfold over his eyes. A bound and blindfolded 7-year-old girl was inside the vehicle, along with three other children, ages 12, 13 and 15. All are in protective custody."

    "They're so thick out here, it's unbelievable," Jorgenson, 58, said of the mountain lions he blames for "wiping out" the deer population around his home near the 1,700-resident town of Watford City. "Two years ago, it'd be nothing to see 200 to 300 mule deer out there; this past winter, we never saw more than 20. We have carcasses all over where they've been killed."

    Am I supposed to feel bad about this? FUCK. DEER.

  • Brett L||

    Rats with hooves. I second this.

  • ||

    Rats are intelligent creatures. Deer are MNG-grade stupid.

  • John||

    Deer are vermin. And they taste good too. So I can't really blame the cat.

  • ||

    The ecosystems of the eastern U.S. have really suffered without an apex predator, and the painters hardly ever bother people, so I'm having a hard time seeing a downside here.

    What is it about mountain lions? Why all the names? Mountain lion, puma, cougar, catamount. . .why not just pick a name and stop? I vote catamount, which is awesome.

    Night Screamer is my favorite.

  • Pro Libertate||

    Over catamount?

  • Trespassers W||

    Night Screamer IS his catamite.

    Wait, what?

    Male, drag queen. Makes more money not getting the op.

  • ||

    Just a gay dude I would guess.

    A fabulous specimen. Look at those immaculate eyebrows.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    I wish I could pull off a look like that. It would get me out of having to do so many things.

  • rac3rx||

    It needs to wax the 'stache.

    With eye brows like that you better be funny and smoke a cigar, or you could just sashay down the boulevard with a purse.

    A brothel where you can screw for free, as long as you're willing to be broadcast on the interwebs. NSFW pics.

    It is a sad day when there is more value of sending movies of people fucking out on the internet is more valuable than charging men for the actual sex. I think I understand the roots of the population crash in Europe.

    Claims for jobless benefits climbed last week by 6,000 to 386,000 as the private sector does "just fine."

    WAS THIS EXPECTED?

    Claims for unemployment insurance payments unexpectedly climbed by 6,000 to 386,000 in the week ended June 9, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington.

    Unfuckingbelievable. And here I thought I was joking.

    Angelina Jolie is infatuated with Kate Middleton. Let the sick fantasies begin.

  • ||

    God damn it, someone shove a fucking pizza in that lady's mouth. Fuck, remember when she was hot?

  • ||

    Easy, John, she still looks just fine.

  • John||

    The tats are the only think I don't like about her.

  • ||

    No, she looks like a cancer patient pumped up with silicone and collagen. I can handle skinny, but I don't want to fuck women who look about to die.

    Well, not always, at least.

  • ||

    I will admit that she's now thin enough to make her head look freaky big.

  • Bill||

    Someone I know was at an event here in N.O. with her and Brad. Said Angelina looked like some kind of mutant fish.

    In fact, registration ruined celebrity impersonations altogether. I miss posting as Rick James.

    You realize you can still do it, right? Just have to change your name on your user settings. It just takes slightly longer.

    For "just fine", see Rosie Jones (NSFW).

    No she doesn't. She looks cadaverous.
