Where's Klaud with a jackie chan pic when you need one?

Also, when I read a story like this on WI today, I seriously though 'hmm... I smell something fishy'... apparently this really does happen.

Either way, I guess that RL doesn't want easier kills?

Contract lawyers probably don't see it (the SC decision and it's results, that is) that way. And I'm not sure I can disagree with the idea.

-- edited to add: actually, all I've seen discussed on legal blogs, law school class sites, etc. is that the SC decision only related to arbitration clauses (i.e. sounds like you can go to arbitration but not sue for damages if the contract so states), so I wonder how much comes down to a writer's interpretation vs actual legal interpretation. I assume this is mainly people getting pissed about the fact that they think they may have no or little recourse if the Red Circle of Doom happens again.

On to actual amusement: terrible reviews pouring in for WWZ, which seems to be yet another 'let's call it the same thing as a well-recieved book and hope we make loads of money' movie.

The SCOTUS just gave their ruling today on an antitrust/arbitration issue
The Supreme Court didn't. The Court's opinion, written by Justice Scalia on behalf of the conservative justices (Sotomayor recused), argues that the agreement between the parties is more important even than any other consideration. The majority argued, in short, the contract is the most important consideration.

Again it is a case of a contract specifying arbitration. Further, both these rulings pertain to contracts between professional entities, rather than seller v. consumer.
It also has the further pespective that the court must consider, being that, extending these rulings to an agreement (it is not a 'contract' as in the other two cases) would lower the rights of consumers in the US for the same issue that would be actionable by the rest of the world.

A guy who's raided extensively in the past with my GM/RL made this post about him today and it made us laugh at how accurate it really is.

I have made an exhaustive study, and am prepared to offer my findings.


First, there is the log-in.

Then the start of raid.

The First Wipe
Image

The Tenth Wipe
Image

The Thirtieth Wipe
Image

Then it's either The Victory
Image

Or the conciliatory send-off.
Image

Alternatively, after a month or so of wipes.

There is far greater jeopardy involved in not getting a university place in China than there is in the UK and US. Far more competition for places and a lot greater difference in future career outcomes and earning prospects. I can certainly understand why there is so much tension involved in the process.

Isn't that the argument used for doping in cycling?

Except in cycling, if you don't make the top spot you're not relegated to a miserable life of menial labor and no opportunity.

:(

Still, it's pretty surreal that cheating is so endemic that doing something to mitigate it is seen as a brutally unjust and unfair act towards the cheating students.

Amusing myself at the moment. Nearly wet myself when they announced Megaman in the next Smash Bros game. Been a fan since I was able to rent the second game at the local video store back in the early 90's and this is quite possibly the only reason I have to get a WiiU. I finally got off my butt and did this a little earlier tonight;

I like what I managed to do with just Youtube, PrintScreen and MSPaint. The whole thing is rotating on my desktop with this as the last one;
