New Google trick

Go to google and type movie:mononoke (or any title of your choice), to see Google's new movie feature.  Then click on the '34 reviews' to see all the reviews available online...

For those of you in a particular mood, try movie:sad or movie:crap (I'm looking at you laserboy)

Ok, this is going too far

Invading foreign countries on imagined charges I can understand.

Imprisoning people without charge and torturing them for months sounds justifiable.

But now they've gone too far!  They've appointed the head of security for the company behind Gator to the Department of Homeland Security's "Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee".

Will someone please reassure me that the USA is just a huge joke and doesn't really exist?  They're just something made up by The Onion, right?

Freeeeeeedom!

Just been to The Political Compass again, where I scored:
Economic Left/Right: -1.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.97

Which means (broadly) that I believe that companies are useful (nay, vital) but should be kept under strict control and that I also believe that people shouldn't be told what to do as far as is humanly possible.

Which sounds about right.

Political Compass

As polls seems to inspire responses, here's one you can put your results into.

Go to The Political Compass and take the test (about 5 minutes). Then come back and tell us how you did. I'm willing to bet most of you will fall into the negative scores on both axes, lord knows _I_ did.

And yes, I know it's not detailed enough, but LJ only allows twenty points on a scale...
