An online retailer has a unique business plan: get a whole mess of complaints to rise up in Google pagerank. Tip: Make sure you research before you buy!

“Hello, My name is Stanley with DecorMyEyes.com,” the post began. “I just wanted to let you guys know that the more replies you people post, the more business and the more hits and sales I get. My goal is NEGATIVE advertisement.”

US Government Can Seize Your Website

“Operation In Our Sites” Is what the Immigration and Customs office have called the seizures in the past. The strange thing is, they only seized the domains. No servers, hard drives, etc. were taken, so most of these sites are moving back up under new domain names. Some of the sites are torrent related, while others are sites who have been linked to counterfeit goods.

Nintendo takes laziness to a whole new level with games that can play themselves. And you thought games that included “hints” were bad.

Urban Dictionary – Gate Rape

Passing through a security gate at an American airport, which requires either a full-body scan where T.S.A. guards ogle your naked body or an “enhanced” pat down where T.S.A. guards molest you. The T.S.A. is required by law to make the process as humiliating and abusive as possible.

I saw all the gate rape happening at the airport and decided to become a terrorist.

My sister got gate raped at LAX.

I am glad we just went though the body xray, that guy got gate raped!
