I never thought police brutality could be this funny.

I didn't see anything in that video that was funny. Just a guy getting tasered and punched in the face, while the cops did it infront of a camera.

Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy

Sea lion takes boat for
a spin


Quote
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (KABC/CNN) - A sea lion got behind the wheel of a boat and took sheriff's officials in California on a wild ride.

Officials were notified that the animal was hanging around a dock in Newport Beach. After several failed attempts to get the sea lion in the water, officials took the animal aboard their fire boat but the animal commandeered it.

The lion took control, honked the horn, and even put the boat in reverse.

It took more than an hour and a few squirts from a garden hose to get the animal to go back to sea

What's next a cruise ship? :ganishka:

Any update on this yet? Are those cops in jail?

Walkman, at 30, a mystery to teen
Prepare to feel old.


Quote
"My dad had told me it was the iPod of its day," Campbell wrote. "He had told me it was big, but I hadn't realized he meant that big. It was the size of a small book."

Sure enough, people on the street noticed the antique clinging from his belt with amusement and friends on his school bus were quick to come up with some witty remark.

Campbell went on to criticize the portable cassette player's size, appearance, functionality and the "hissy backtrack and odd warbly noises."

Even when he discovered the cassette had more music on the other side (it took him three days), Campbell was still disappointed it could only hold a small fraction of what an iPod can.

"Did my dad ... really ever think this was a credible piece of technology?"

Well, there goes another Republican "candidate for President." At this rate, there aren't going to be any by 2012.

TAIL TO THE CHIEF!



Oh, Aaz and I are lucky we have Presidents we can relate to. :guts:

But wait! It appears video footage proves Obama to be the messianic innocent we always knew he was, Sarkozy... not so much. :griffnotevil:

The final word: nice ass.

Hahaha, well Obama is a smoother operator, that's all. He has mastered the art of the sliding glance, never stopping and staring. :guts: While Sarkozy is, as always, not quite a class act. Still, great picture, and well, Brazil never fails.
