Awesome reviews!
"Accept no substitutes when casually repressing students, November 21, 2011

"This review is from: Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray (Misc.)

"Whenever I need to breezily inflict discipline on unruly citizens, I know I can trust Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray to get the job done! The power of reason is no match for Defense Technology's superior repression power. When I reach for my can of Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray, I know that even the mighty First Amendment doesn't stand a chance against its many scovil units of civil rights suppression.

"When I feel threatened by students, no matter how unarmed, peaceful and seated they may be, I know that Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray has got my back as I casually spray away at point blank range.

"It really is the Cadillac of citizen repression technology.

"Buy a whole case!"

This is huge. UK government announces a profound change in direction on copyright: new and wider exceptions, protected access to orphan works, but no country-wide ISP blocking regime. Key quote: "[T]he widest possible exceptions to copyright within the existing EU framework are likely to be beneficial to the UK." This will position the UK to increase economic growth, innovation, and entrepreneurship, as well as scholarship and creative expression.
