The Atlantic – pathetic rag

Occupy Wall Street Spreads Worldwide – Alan Taylor – In Focus – The Atlantic.

No mention of the fact it did not start in America. Oh no. But this typical USA!USA! rag decides that the USA! is leading from the front and the USA! will be responsible for saving the world. Yeah right. Idiots.

If this was the plague this junky nonsense would soon be pointing outside of the USA! Can’t have it both ways. Oh, sorry, it’s the USA! You do.

All those coders at Mozilla must be really proud of the bugs they ship with Firefox 7. If they weren’t they’d have fixed them. Firefox used to be good, now it’s a buggy festering mess.

An amusing line:

“This is an innovative design which is simple, classical and practical. Its ingenious structure also means that it will be much shorter and smaller than existing pylons and therefore less intrusive,” gushed Chris Huhne, the Minister for Energy and Climate Change, for whom whale song is a lifestyle soundtrack.

France said on Wednesday it was tightening immigration rules to require would-be citizens to provide written proof that they speak enough French to manage their daily lives.

Quoting an interior ministry estimate, business newspaper Les Echos reported on Wednesday that about one million foreigners living in France did not speak French. Link

which reminded me of a joke:

Three guys, an Englishman, a Frenchman and an American are out walking along the beach together one day. They come across a lantern and a genie pops out of it. “I will give you each one wish, ” says the genie. The American says, “I am a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in America.” With a blink of the genie’s eye, ‘FOOM’ – the land in America was forever made fertile for farming. The Frenchman was amazed, so he said, “I want a wall around France, so that no one can come into our precious country.” Again, with a blink of the Genie’s eye, ‘POOF’ – there was a huge wall around France. The Englishman asks, “I’m very curious. Please tell me more about this wall. The Genie explains, “Well, it’s about 150 feet high, 50 feet thick and nothing can get in or out.” The Englishman says, “Fill it up with water.”
