Which holiday movie are you?

1st question: 1.
Every Christmas movie should end:

With the main character finding new appreciation for life.

With the protagonist getting his first book published.

With a child happily receiving the gift he or she always wanted.

With at least one person getting swiftly kicked in the crotch.

I was 'A Christmas Story'.

Amazon Launches Christmas Attack on Local Shops (EVIL!)

Apparently concerned that it's not already doing enough to undermine local physical retailers across the country, Amazon.com announced it will pay customers $5 to go into a local store, scan an item, walk out, and buy the same item on Amazon. Please don't do this cheap, sad thing.

To get the $5 discount, you're supposed to use Amazon's "Price Check" iPhone and Android app to scan in the bar code of an item and then indicate what price the item is being sold at. This gives Amazon valuable intelligence on how various retailers are pricing various items. "We scour online and in-store advertisements from other retailers, every day, year-round," an Amazon director said on All Things D. But now Amazon won't have to work so hard in the future, since hordes of consumers will (theoretically) sell out the merchants who pump sales taxes into their localities with sales taxes, all to save a measly five bones.

By all means use Amazon - they have amazing selection! - but there's no need to be a tacky jerk to your neighborhood store in the process. Unless that store is a Wal Mart, Target, or American Apparel, in which case go to town (by which we mean, go out of town).

Copyright Infringement? (Eagles fans take note!) LOLOLOL

Copyright Infringement?


I hate to be tacky, but has the NFL seen this? You know that the Philadelphia Eagles own that, right?

Okay, so I do mean to be tacky. But no matter what I say, itís still ainít as tacky as that hair.

I think this is a definite case for a lawsuit. Not only did she infringe on the copyright, she mangled it.
No wonder their season went south.

Calling Roger Goodell!!

Apparently.

Apparently, you can pull assumptions out of your ass on here as well.

Man, 19, says Sandusky gave him whiskey and assaulted him inside a PSU football office

A 19-year-old central Pennsylvania man has come forward claiming that Jerry Sandusky gave him whiskey and then sexually abused him during a single incident inside an office in the Penn State football building.

Harrisburg attorney Chuck Schmidt said he was hired by the man, who was 12 at the time of the alleged assault and a Second Mile camper who was staying overnight at the Second Mile facilities. The Second Mile is a children's charity Sandusky founded in 1977.
It was a single instance of abuse, described as more than touching, and his attorney said

Sandusky dropped the boy off at The Second Mile afterward.

This is 2 years after Sandusky was supposed to have had his keys taken and his access to the facilities stopped.

They gots lots of 'splainin to do.

Can you say 'tip of the iceberg.'
