Back in the year 2001 I predicted that within 20 years there would be sex devices that would be plugged into a computer and we could engage in simulated sex with someone across the world wide web. People thought I was crazy, but low and behold, Durex drops the bomb today that they’re putting the finishing touches on special clothing that can vibrate via a phone app. That means that if your wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/random stranger is far far away from you, you can kind of “do it” via technology.
Furious Muslim critics complained that the Lego setâ€™s Asian and oriental figures were â€śdeceitful and criminalâ€ť characters such as gun-runners, slave masters and terrorists.
â€śThis sort of thing does not belong in a childâ€™s bedroom,â€ť said Melissa Gunes, a spokeswoman for Austriaâ€™s Turkish Cultural Association. Critics also claimed that the palace had an uncanny resemblance to Istanbulâ€™s Hagia Sophia mosque. â€śThe game is pedagogical dynamite. It depicts Muslims as terrorists,â€ť the TCA complained, adding that Jabba was shown to be a â€śterrorist who likes to smoke hookah and have his victims killedâ€ť. It appealed to Lego to withdraw the product immediately.
Lego initially dug in its heels and refused the request. The company insisted the product was merely a faithful reproduction. â€śWe see no reason to take it off the market, we have simply followed the film,â€ť the company said.
But yesterday it emerged it had backed down and agreed to end its production from 2014 onwards. The decision followed a meeting in Munich between Turkish community leaders and Lego executives. Birol Killic, the president of the TCA, said in a statement: â€śWe are very grateful and congratulate Lego on the decision to take Jabbaâ€™s Palace out of production.â€ť
Guys, This is JABBA THE FREAKING HUT!! He’s a space slug! He’s not a freaking Muslim, Budhist or Catholic! He’s not Asian or Middle Eastern! He’s a Hutt gangster from space!
This comes from Russia, where they have a big military, everyone has a dash cam due to fraud and people drink vodka like water. Earlier this year, all three of those things came into play when a dashcam allegedly caught a tank being driven while drunk in broad daylight, smashing into a lamp post.
Cops pulled a car over for a routine check in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Apparently in Michigan, you can keep the roadkill you hit, but you have to go out and get a deer kill permit following the incident. Well the driver of the car proceeds to tell the cops that he hit the deer and was taking it home. The police offered to write him up a permit and as they went to pop the trunk to look at the supposedly dead animal, the little deer jumped out and ran off into the woods. Apparently he was only stunned, making for a hilarious video and great story.
Well, it’s not as bad as the BBC using a Halo logo when discussing the United Nations Security Council last year, but it’s still pretty bad. Interspersed with actual images from the Syrian civil war was a sweeping shot from Assassin’s Creed, which was an approximation of what Damascus looked like 720 years ago.
Please, please use a clip from GTA: San Andreas when talking about Los Angeles. Someone. Do it.
Personally, I can’t stand it when people post pictures of their uterus after getting an ultrasound done. Especially if you make it your profile picture, because then I’m talking to a vessel for your child’s next few months, not you. However, this is one ultrasound picture I’d be ok with seeing regularly and I’d pause in awe.
