Who bails out the bail outers:  The Sawyer-esque long con of the ever-so-Keynesian Obama administration amounts to a Ponzi Scheme, Barack Hussein Obubble.

Lifehacker explains how to use Facebook’s new privacy policies.

Apparently, those who make less than $13,000 a year spend an average of 9% of their annual income on lottery tickets.

I am not sure why this isn’t major news but a few weeks back North Korea sunk a South Korean ship and U.S. Intelligence has confirmed that Kim Jong Il gave the green light for the attack.  This is one more reason why proactive measures should be taken against Iran.  South Korea is stuck because Kim Jong Il is crazy and he may have the bomb.

Unfortunately, “dialogue” and hype only go so far, Syrian President Bashar Assad criticizes Obama administration, saying “Obama has failed in Peace Efforts and Lost Influence in Mideast.”  Ouch.

NY Times OP-ed mocking the ridiculous spelling of baby names in today’s world.  What is the worst you’ve seen?

Two Iranian Christian women finally released from prison.

Nonsense with the 2010 Census.

Scientist infects self with computer virus.

Apparently Hurley auditioned for the role of Sawyer and Ben Linus auditioned for the role of Hurely.  Video below.  Weird.
