It was the Ice, Officer, I swear!
Reported recently by that venerable old dame, the SMH, was this article involving the unfortunate predilections of a certain Tamarama man who shall go un-named on this page, though not in the article - that stuff is just too juicy to keep secret.
After finding a number of mutilated, bloodied (and of course, dead) rabbit corpses lying in the streets around their suburb, suspicious residents reported these most disturbing happenings to the local police. Having nothing else to do apart from protecting the residents from having their Mercedes burgled for use in ram-raids, the police set up an operation and caught the scoundrel. Yay! Only...something tells me they got more than they bargained for. From the article;
Police say they intend to lay a further six charges of bestiality against a man arrested last week over the mutilation deaths of 18 rabbits purchased from Sydney pet stores.
Pleading a "drug-induced psychosis" from meth-amphetamine use, the man was refused bail as a threat to the community. That's a shame, because;
In applying for bail, [the accused] was willing to surrender his passport and would undertake not go within 50 metres of a pet shop.
He's clearly trying, people. He probably never had the opportunity to get this sort of advice from Savage Love readers who, like him, just love animals.

I wouldn't want to be a member of any club that would have me.
as Cheray Unman, an ASW member and former VC living in Mill Valley, California, puts it, "If I'm trying to find someone to look after my purebred Samoyeds while I'm in St. Tropez, I'm not going to ask some naked Burning Man hula-hooper on Tribe.net".Man, you can't script that stuff.

This is Microsoft. We Own EVERYTHING!! That is all.
BE asks "Have Microsoft ever invented anything?" I assume so, but regardless of the answer, at the rate they're going with patent filing, they may not have ever invented anything, but they're sure going to own it all.
This article by the New York Times (via Cnet) shows how Microsoft have changed tack in recent years, with Gatesy ramping up the "Patent Quota" (no talk of quality, unfortunately). How's this for usefulness "Adding and Removing White Space from a Document". My God! It's revolutionary! Like, er....the Delete Button. Or an Enter key, maybe?
The Redmonites have seemingly gone berzerk - if it exists, apparently Microsoft own it. Or at least, they want to. This patent, filed on the 21st July 2005, attempts to patent...emoticons.
Yep. Jens Martin, of Redmond, WA - I salute you. Glad to see someone fighting the good fight against those who would say Microsoft has never invented anything.
Microsoft - killing innovation daily since 1981.
