Hjälp Maarit Feldt-Ranta skydda barnen från demokrati och yttrandefrihet!

Maarit Feldt-Ranta förstår inte vad hon talar om, hatar frihet och är en fara för samhället.

Ni som delar hennes “think of the children”-inångade moralpanik och ovetande om tekniska konsekvenser förespråkar masspionage och åsiktsregistrering riktat mot internetanvändare, vänligen dra åt helvete och lämna er rösträtt i korgen vid dörren, så kan vi andra uppskjuta nånslags DDR-tillvaro med några år.

Nyttan med en ko, faktauppsats “skriven av en icke namngiven mellanstadieelev”

“På den översta sidan – Och den ena sidan – Och den andra sidan, är det bara hår… Det heter ko-hår och har alltid samma färg som kon. Färgen på kon heter kulör.”

Freestyle Powerizer Stilts are tools used in some new “extreme sport”. Swebounce.com (related to one of the persons in the video) describes the phenomenon as follows:

“Powerisers are bouncy stilts that you strap yourself into. With some training you can run as fast as 20mph and jump 2 meters high. For many people it’s enough to just run around and bounce but there are many kind of tricks you can perform on powerisers. I would say that this is the extreme sport of the future.”

Pääsy Youtubeen estetty poliisiviranomaisten tietokoneilla

“Tavallinen poliisi ei pääse tietokoneeltaan katselemaan YouTube-palvelun videoita verkossa.

Poliisin työtä ohjaava sisäministeriö ylläpitää listaa internetsivustoista, joille tavallisella poliisilla ei ole pääsyä. Suosittu videopalvelu on mukana estolistalla, jota ministeriö perustelee tietoturvasyillä.

“Meillä oli hirveästi ongelmia YouTuben kanssa silloin kun se oli sallittu”"

Selainturvallisuuden parantamiseksi tietoturvajeesus suosittelee esimerkiksi virtualisointia, adblockereita ja Firefoxia.

Carved relief by Peter Lenk with naked German politicians grabbing each other's genitals. From left to right, former German Finance Minister Hans Eichel, former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, current Chancellor Angela Merkel, former governor of Bavaria Edmund Stoiber and current leader of the Free Democrats, Guido Westerwelle.

Carved relief of naked German political leaders grabbing each other’s genitals

“…curious Germans have flocked [in Bodman-Ludwigshafen, in the far south of Germany] for over a week to see a new work by the sculptor Peter Lenk, [a] carved relief of naked German political leaders [former German Finance Minister Hans Eichel, former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, current Chancellor Angela Merkel, former governor of Bavaria Edmund Stoiber and current leader of the Free Democrats, Guido Westerwelle] … naked and laughing and grabbing each other’s genitals. A banner over their heads reads, in English, “Global Players.”"

32 recent photos from North Korea

Description of the above photo by Eric Lafforgue (Flickr):

“Pyongyang view, taken from Yanggakdo hotel. You can find a famous satellite picture on the net showing a map of the Korean peninsula by night, with a huge difference between the north and south. In North Korea, there is no public lighting, and people use very low wattage bulbs in their houses. The North Korean capital is as surreal by night as it is by day. Due to the fuel crisis there’s hardly any traffic to be heard after dark, and nightlife is virtually non-existent. Only monuments are lit during local festivities.”

The Bostons Globe’s Big Picture series seems to be worth subscribing to. This North Korea edition has lots of Flickr links, making further exploration of these photographers’ work very tempting.
