By US Government's own definetion, it uses WMDs Every Day...

http://www.forbes.com

When most of us think of weapons of mass destruction, we think of nuclear bombs, or nerve gas, or biological agents. Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged with using a WMD after he and his brother allegedly detonated a bomb made from a pressure cooker. How is this possible? Well, as is often the case, the common sense definition and the legal definition are not the same. The "legal definition" smacks of "Thought Crime" to me. To my mind, if you kill a bunch of people, it doesn't matter what weapon you used. it's the results which count....

New Zealand Government Bans 71 Baby Names

http://www.salon.com

New Zealand's government has banned certain baby names. What is even more shocking are the comments below the article where people applaud New Zealand's actions for "saving" the children from their evil parents.

Conversely, when they collapse, nobody wants to sell. So volatility means nobody wants to transact in Bitcoins, because there’s a good chance that the next day someone will feel like a fool.

Bitcoin Smashes Empires

https://bitcointalk.org

"What follows is my response to a question that was posted on the Rugatu website asking, "What is the legal status of Bitcoin?" After composing this over the course of 10 minutes or so, I realized I liked the response, and decided I want to "polish it up" into a better op-ed style article.

Cops High Five use of beer bong at philles game. It is tough to make this 50 characters, but I wonder how often something like this could happen. Should we give these cops a Liberty Service Medal, for recognizing the right of a citizen to pursue happiness? I wonder how many cops would be checking regulations to find something to charge her with.
