Macca to split from missus

So, apparently Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills are to be divorced. Man, that's going to cost him an arm and a leg. If only he'd got a pre-nuptual agreement then she wouldn't have a leg to stand on. She's really caught him on the hop. Still, at least now he'll be footloose and fancy-free ...

Protecting the children

Webcomic blog Websnark has some excellent advice for concerned parents:

I would like to give you all the super secret method to protect your children from the dangers and images on the internet. From pornography and predation. From immorality and immodesty. From distraction and diseased minds. It is not 100% accurate, but it is vastly closer than any law, any technology, and any censorship that has yet to be developed.
And it is free.
First. Go into your son or daughter's room.
Second. Disconnect the computer. Be careful to note where the cables connect, if you're not familiar with them.
Third. Bring the computer downstairs.
Fourth. Go back to your son or daughter's room. Take the desk the computer was on.
Fifth. Set the computer and desk up in your living room. It should be angled so that wherever you sit when you're watching television, you have a view of the screen. Make certain the child cannot easily block the screen with their body.
Sixth. Verify everything is working.

...

You might think this is a pain in the ass -- you don't want to have to watch your child like a hawk. You don't want to have to tailor your evening activities around monitoring them. You don't want to be put in that role.
Welcome to parenthood.

Hear fucking hear!

Vote Lordi

At the Doomlord's request, here is a link to http://www.votelordi.org, although at the computer I'm currently using that URL makes Firefox fart and fall over, so I don't know what's there. Trust the Doomlord.

In the meanwhile, if you get that too, then here's the video for Hard Rock Hallelujah off of YouTube:
