I haven't finished watching this, but what fucking cowards! Not one person, including the parents, jumped down to protect the child. NOT ONE. I feel that I would have jumped down and told everyone to shut the fuck up and wrapped my body around the child until help arrived. Instead they killed the gorilla, who was probably doing that very thing, protecting the child. Fucking morons.

And btw, there's no fucking way any parent should have let their child drop into the pen. Goddamn fucking losers!

You don't think someone jumping down there wouldn't have been too aggressive to the gorilla?

[from the article] The planned suits come after several similar lawsuits were launched in the U.S. Earlier this month, a jury in St. Louis ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay US$55 million to a woman who claimed the company’s baby powder caused her ovarian cancer.

In another case in February, the company was ordered to pay $72 million to an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer, which she said was caused by using the powder. In both cases, the juries found that Johnson & Johnson knew of a possible link between its talcum powder and cancer but did not warn the public.
Four Canadian women and their families have launched a class-action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson, claiming the women developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s baby powder.

[from the article] Khayatan put Nguyen’s glasses on the floor below an official-looking piece of paper to see how it would be received by gallery-goers.

The work seemed to hit a chord with the public, striking in its simplicity, yet – probably – a challenging commentary on the limits of individual perception.

Khayatan told BuzzFeed News that people gathered around the exhibit to view it and take photographs. He, in turn, took photographs of them admiring his work and later posted them to Twitter, where they went viral.

Nguyen shared images, too, noting the awkwardness of having to retrieve his glasses before they moved on in the museum.

Nguyen told Guardian Australia he and Khayatan were surprised by the reception.

“We thought it would only get maybe at most a couple hundred retweets, but hey, I have a pair of famous glasses on my face every day now!”

I can't remember the last time I took such joy looking up a word: "writedown"

[from the article] The U.S. company said it would shed up to 1,850 jobs, most of them in Finland, and write down $950 million from the 
business. It did not say how many employees currently work on smartphones in the group as a whole.

A Finnish union representative told Reuters the cuts would essentially put an end to Microsoft's development of new phones.

"My understanding is that Windows 10 will go on as an operating system, but there will be no more phones made by Microsoft," said Kalle Kiili, a shop steward.

Microsoft said in a statement it would continue to develop the Windows 10 platform and support its Lumia smartphones, but gave no comment on whether it would develop new Windows phones.

Microsoft bought Nokia's once-dominant handset business for about $7.2 billion US in 2014, but failed to turn the business around and last year announced $7.5 billion US of writedowns and 7,800 job cuts.
Microsoft Corp announced more big cuts to its smartphone business on Wednesday, just two years after it bought handset maker Nokia in an ill-fated attempt to take on market leaders Apple and Samsung.

You know, I hope the United States does elect Donald Drumpf as president. In this day and age, it would probably finish off the United States' reputation as a country and stir up so much trouble that the rest of the world would level the playing field. I don't think we need a superpower, anymore. We have the Internet and can keep an eye on each other democratically or otherwise. The weakening of the United States as a superpower could bring much more peace to the world.

And I think Donald Drumpf is the man to make it happen.

This is what you get for letting Anita Sarkeesian piss endlessly on video games aimed at men. Karma, bitches.
We can quibble about where it stands in the TV canon, but “Sex and the City” has seven Emmys and a suite of Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards. It ran 94 episodes through six seasons on a…

[from the article] On Tuesday seven attackers, aged 16 and 17, were found guilty at a court in the Curup district of Sumatra and sentenced to 10 years in jail each.

“This is in line with our demands,” said Eko Hening Wardhono, an official from the attorney-general’s office, adding that police were still investigating the other five.

A further two suspects are still on the run.

[from the article] Yang Shuo, a worker at a Beijing-based public relations company, told Xinhua that the sudden update interrupted his drafting of a business plan and led to a meeting cancellation for a deal worth 3 million yuan ($457,735).

“Just because I didn’t see the pop-up reminder does not mean I agreed,” he said.

I don't understand your question +Fati Alhassan. Are you referring to the Britney Spears song but are too lazy to use an online dictionary?

This video reminds me of that time my sister got mono. They called it the kissing disease, but I didn't really see a difference in her behaviour. What a great-sounding disease, though! Reminds me of another music video by the Spice Girls, "When 2 Become 1": https://youtu.be/FA5jsa1lR9c

Just found this on Reddit.

[from the article] While the families of 9/11 victims called for the declassification of evidence that members of the Saudi monarchy helped fund the attacks, a Saudi newspaper turned the table, blaming the United States for the worst terrorist massacre on its soil.

Saudi legal expert Katib Al-Shammari, writing in the London-based Saudi daily Al-Hayat on April 28, charged that the U.S. carried out the 9/11 attacks while placing blame on others, beginning with al-Qaida and the Taliban, then shifting to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and now Saudi Arabia.

“The U.S. created, in public opinion, an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes,” Shammari wrote.

Shammari said the effort to release evidence of purported Saudi involvement in 9/11 is part of standard U.S. policy of using archival documents as leverage against various countries.

“Those who follow American policy see that it is built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities. This is because it occasionally presents a certain topic to a country that it does not wish [to bring up] at that time but [that it is] reserving in its archives as an ace to play [at a later date] in order to pressure that country,” he wrote.

He charged that the Americans decided not to remove Saddam in the 1990s because they preferred to keep him as a bargaining chip with Gulf states.

The article was published on the eve of visit President Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia in April. At the time, Congress was debating the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which would allow the families of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to sue the Saudi government for damages.

Echoing the charges of “9/11 truthers,” Shammari said, “Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings.

“Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse.”

He said the U.S. used 9/11 to “launch a new age of global armament” and charged “the “nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy.”

After World War II, he wrote, the U.S. created the Cold War, then, when it ended, “began to see Muslims as their new enemy.”

“This will never end until it accomplishes the goals it has set for itself,” Shammari said of the U.S.

“So why not let these achievements be credited to the American administration, while insurance companies pay for the damages, whether domestic or foreign? This, my dear Arab and Muslim, is the policy of the American archives.”

People that don't clean their hands after using the washroom should be separated from the rest of the human race in a kind of useful apartheid, curtailing their movements and limiting their rights. They should have to use communal outhouses without anything so much as tissue, since they're so fucking disgusting.
