Try as I might, I can't think of any legitimate reason for urinating on a war memorial. On Canada Day, no less.

What's the appropriate punishment for this? How about revoking the creep's citizenship and shipping him off one-way to someplace like Somalia. Let the bastard learn firsthand how hard-won law and order can be, and who wins it.

This takes guts

Being an organ donor is all well and good, under a couple of conditions. One is that the donor should consent. Two is that the donor should already have died.

You'd think it would go without saying that the cause of death would be something other than removal of the organs to be transplanted, but apparently those inscrutable ChiComs see things differently. Especially if you are Falun Gong. Details here.

What the heck, they're just overgrown embryos anyway.

Obnoxious web sites

Attention webmasters - don't send me through a long succession of screens selecting choices and then "prompt me to register" before showing me what I came there for. Do it up front or not at all.

Ooh, that felt good.

Dear Santa

Yeah, I love electronic toys. But this gizmo, uses your EVDO cellphone or card to create a broadband router with 4 ethernet ports and wifi.

No, they don't give them away, and even I can't talk myself into getting one now. But there are some rave comments here and here.
