A few days ago, I got on my soapbox about the edible laws in Texas. Actually, I let a few musically talented attorneys do most of the talking. I thought I would share some more of their wisdom today… trust me, just shut up and listen.
Thanks for listeing. If you enjoyed the video, you may wish to subscribe to the singing lawyers on YouTube.
There are two things about this story that hit me immediately. The first is obvious, “could he be that stupid?”. However, I did know an individual who actually did re-gift an engagement ring. Seems this type of stupid runs more common than one would first think. I get the stupid part, there is just one detail I am curious about. Continue reading “Things NOT to Re-Gift – Engagement Rings”→
I just got done with a post about a stupid lawsuit and I immediately happened on another. The heirs of the author of Soft Kitty, often uses in the TV show Big Bang Theory, are trying to get their paws on some of the show’s cash. (Yes, Sheldon that is sarcasm) Just in case, you don’t know about the song or the show.

Personally, I love The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon Cooper is an iconic character, the show is well written and I watch it regularly. I don’t like seeing Big Bang Theory lawsuit when I search Google.

George Hotz, aka Geohot, Does Cars, Play Stations, iPhone and Rhymes
I knew a good bit about the famous hacker, geohot. He has a major league talent as a hacker. He would be what we call a “l33t”. For my older readers, unfamiliar with l33tsp34k, that is hacker-geek for “elite”. This 26-year old’s most recent accomplishment is, according to Bloomberg and other sources, an autonomous car!
In the past, he has also:
been credited for the first to hack the iPhone, way back when he was still in high school
hack the Play Station and get sued by Sony
and much more
What I didn’t know, until I heard mention of it on a podcast, he also spits rhyhms.
While the Internet is about many things, cute kittie photos, viral videos and, unfortunately, Rule 34. It also a great tool for freedom of expression, fair use and sharing information. True, it can harbor pirates, those who break copyright laws, but freedom of expression is a double-edged sword. I can’t ban the Koran and still, justly and fairly, have my Bible. In order to function, it must be completely open and accessible to all, equally and fairly.
Unfortunately, not everyone feels that way. There are some who believe in suppression of ideas, filtering and censorship. I call bullshit. Let me take my chances with that sword. Continue reading “The Dancing Baby Wins!”→
