Meh, I'm sure it's less to do with such an absurd idea as it is to curb the influence of the Dalai Lama, i.e., I'm in agreement with the article's point about that. In other Chinese news, a family wants to give their child a unique name. It seems that "XD" was already taken, though . I mean...*sigh*...

The phrase "insert Deity", especially when used online, as a way to avoid the use of "God" for whatever reason. If you're trying to avoid insulting someone's faith, give it up; it's the internet. Anyone offended by "Thank Allah" should just stop browsing right now. If you're using it as a joke of so...

I've never really heard a good argument for blocking websites. The two basic arguments are that 1) School computers are for learning and working only, and 2) Surfing the web can allow malware to be dropped on the PC, at best only using up more resources (processor cycles, memory, etc.) and at worst...

Another problems with Rat is the lack of merchandising and tie-ins, aka peripheral advertising. A part of the problem was that very few knew it was in theaters. No buzz was being made for it, thus no one cared. Eh. I can't think of a Pixar movie since Toy Story 2 that really had a high level of tie...

I don't think it's late enough for us to call it a flop. Certainly not the block-buster success Disney hoped it would be, but I think it will at least break even, if not a bit more. As for why? Easy: Transformers and Harry Potter. It came out a scant 3 days before TF; after that, forget it. TF domin...

TAKE THAT! Understanding how single cortical neurons discriminate between sensory stimuli is fundamental to providing a link between cortical neural responses and perception.

I vote no. Sailor Moon is nowhere near violent enough to necessitate being on Adult Swim. Aside from having to censor episode 200 a bit, the whole series could go on Toonami.
