Paris Hilton Got Mistaken For Mother Teresa…Sort Of

While ranting over on my Google Notebook about Paris Hilton getting $1,200,000 for just showing up and waving at 2 charity events–which is basically nothing. I came to the conclusion that the only way that a charity could do that is by mistaking Paris Hilton for Mother Teresa. Which is only logical because since Mother Teresa’s Features Resemble Paris Hilton I can see how that can happen. Can’t you?

That or these charities can be listed under the same category of charities that launder money to terrorism. Oh, no–! You don’t think that Paris Hilton is the way Osama Bin Laden is going to bring down the West?! Wow…or as Paris would say, “That’s hot…!” I’m just kidding though about the charities. No disrespect. They’re straight.

Google Notebook

I recently began using Google Notebook and I have found it to be really nifty to say the least. I’ve been experimenting with it and it’s a pretty cool concept. You can check out my notebook or you can go to Google Notebook and start your own.

One Month’s Piracy–$11,440,939,650,000?

Well, well, it seems that Donny did some math with the amount that the RIAA usually sues people per ‘infringement’ of $150,000. Then he took the number of torrents that were posted in January on The Pirate Bay which were 2370 and multipled the number of downloads and came with a figure of 76,272,931 and then multipled that by $150 and got $11,440,939,650,000. Which is more than the gross domestic product of the country of France. The gross domestic product is “the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time”.

So basically in one month–if the RIAA were to sue all of those whom downloaded all of those 2370 music files then they would have not only more money than Bill Gates but more money than all the goods and services produced within the country of France. Not even Bill Gates has that kind of money–and he’s the richest in the world! Again this only proves my point that the RIAA is insane. Because according to this, there would be absolutely no margin for there to be a music industry period. Their loss wouldn’t just be CD sales or this or that it would be the complete termination of an industry–the music business would be in shreds. Yet it is not so. Why? Because one, the RIAA is lying; two, the RIAA is crazy and three, all they want is money. Plus the RIAA doesn’t make as much money as the GDP of France. That’s ludicrous! That’s absurd. And keep in mind that these are but estimates–estimates for one month–not even a year. So let us say that for the next month it stays the same then it would be almost as much money as what the GDP of the U.S. and France is combined.

The RIAA again is crazy. They don’t really care. All they care is that they fleece as many people as they can before they are found out. Or in other terms sue as many people for the most outrageous sum as they can before someone catches on. Not only that but the RIAA breaks the law. The RIAA invades the privacy of a multitude of individuals as well as bend laws. Heh they’ve broken more subchapters of laws then most people do by downloading music off the internet. Plus the GDP of the world is only 44,433,002–so basically estimated–you’re telling me that in possibly 4 months the RIAA would have more money owed to them then the world possibly has?! Huh?

Again I will say the RIAA is crazy and they’re the one whom should be sued and not the other way around. If this were the case then the RIAA would just go away because they wouldn’t have any money for anything–not even to take the bus or the subway to go to the court house to sue someone and not even money to pay the fees of their attorney whom actually do the suing. So there you have it. More evidence that RIAA is indeed crazy and that they should go do what they were intended to do–which is not suing but giving out royalties.

Livejournal Fiction Horror Prompts Author For DNA

What in the world? So the University Police of the University of Florida asked a graduate student of English to provide fingerprints and DNA so that “they can compare the fictional murder he described in his story to evidence from any similar unsolved murders.” Say what? “They also questioned Sandifer’s advisors as to whether their students should be writing material like Sandifer’s.” Huh? Um, let me see–he can write whatever he likes because we’re not in China–we’re in America. Seriously why should that even be a concern? Then the “‘The Dean of Students’ explanation was that the police needed to look into it, but they looked into it inappropriately. Sure, investigate a complaint, but the university police shouldn’t try to play FBI.” Exactly. Seriously it’s the same thing that goes on with MySpace. This kind of stuff is starting to get ridiculous.

Madonna’s ‘Da Vinci’ Code

Well I guess people are in controversy over Madonna’s tour opener where she hung herself from a cross and had video screens show images of thrid world poverty and stats and thereafter running a video montage of ‘juxtaposed’ stuff of “Bush, members of his administration and British Prime Minister Tony Blair with footage of Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden, and Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe. Midway through the new song ‘I Love New York’.” Wow. Madonna’s ‘Da Vinci’ Code–heh. Wonder what that was supposed to mean. Dan Brown? Ron Howard? Anyone?

Lose Yourself–The Jodie Foster Version

Heh. I remember Drudge going on about last night Sunday about this speech at Penn’s 250th Commencement how that Jodie Foster didn’t get the memo about the global warming from Al Gore. Because she mentioned 9/11, Katrina, Bush–yet she didn’t mention global warming. Heh. Also Drudge didn’t mention the fact that she sort of looks like a pilgrim–at least in this video I saw. So she forgot global warming yet she did her rendition of Eminem’s Lose Yourself. That’s funny.

Reporters Can Be Prosecuted

The Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said that he believes–believes‘ journalist can be prosecuted for publishing classified information–citing an obligation to national security. He also said that, “the First Amendment right of a free press should not be absolute when it comes to national security.”

Okay so now that the Attorney General has spoken…that the First Amendment “…should not be absolute…” when it has to do with national security. Seriously, who is he–Pharaoh? So we’re going to rewrite the Constitution, eh? Or at least the First Amendment which states that it forbids the government to, “infringe the freedom of speech“…oh, excuse me…unless it has to do with national security according to the ‘belief’ of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales whom cites an ‘obligation’ to the National Security Agency, I mean national security. Heh, then again it’s director under the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 does the following:

On another note it’s kind of ‘funny’ that the Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence, Michael V. Hayden whom is, “responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activities of the national intelligence program” was on Monday, May 8, 2006 nominated by President George W. Bush to be Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Heh, although not the first active member of the military to be appointed to run the Central Intelligence Agency it’s kind of strange. Heh. I have been reading too much 1984.
