Hmm. Tired of waiting, someone in China has written and published their own Harry Potter 5. Alas, it sounds quite awful. If it were quality I might be tempted. This is what happens when you create huge demand and slack on the supply. I guess I'm glad she's an artist and not a corporation, but I'm still impatient.

I really shouldn't feel this sense of glee at the prospect of another big accounting scandal... but since it's Qwest. Ha! Hahaha! Allow me to remind you that they ruined our lives last summer. Assholes. (It occurs to me that this is sort of instant karma.)
On another note: Now is the time to buy stock. The stock market has never failed to grow over the long term. You'll get more bang for your buck if you invest now. Buy low sell high yadda yadda...

Edit: I'm not suggesting you buy Qwest stock. Just stocks in general. Any company so screwed up that it's obvious to a layman, is a bad investment.

Dude... You can find some SCARY shit on the internet at 5 am. Just start searching on the Illuminati. Eeesh. Satanism, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Ayn Rand, and the evils of Islam, all with less than 6 degrees of separation. Not to mention the folks who go on and on about needing to rid the earth of half the human population. Seriously, they want the total population at 3 billion within the next 50-100 years. How this is to happen is never explained. It's worse than the zero poulation growth folks. Even AIDS absent any intervention, wouldn't kill half the population. Check out One World Order dot org. Creepy.
