My English teacher thinks the Sun is at the centre of the Universe. It's a long, stupid story.

Why do people believe anything silly?

There are even some people who still believe the Earth is flat.

Everyone that goes on about that bill being some authorization for unlimited detention of US citizens annoys me immensely. I've read the bill (at least the part that everyone is so worked up over) and US citizens are explicitly immune from any such actions, as are a lot of other people. It could only be applied to a small fraction of the world's population. That does not necessarily make it okay, of course, but it does mean that everyone who starts ranting and raving about it and saying that Obama is a fascist and everything are a bunch of bloody loonies.

Of course, there could be some legal stuff in there that I'm not getting and it's worse than it looks, but I haven't thus far heard from anyone who's actually read the law and the others that it references that thinks it's as bad as everyone is making it out to be.

It was a huge deal last year/earlier this year. Everybody had their panties/knickers in a bunch over it, mostly due to hearsay (they heard from somebody else who heard from somebody else that it was going to be bad). And nobody ever bothered to read the damn thing, and everyone got super enraged at the government and the president for no good reason (there are plenty of good reasons, but this is not one).

I do recall hearing something like that last year, but i kinda forgot about it, since there are lots of stupid news coming from the USA.

I think I had an aneurysm.

Really though the argument about being too complex is so painfully stupid.

Four minutes into the show, and they already placed San Fransisco incorrectly on the map /-_-\ It's a major city! How would they like it if I went to the UK, made a TV show, and put Liverpool in the wrong place!? Not very much, I think.

UK is notorious with their maps. I have seen a british TV-show, where they included Estonia as a part of Finland. dry
