    I must confess that I enjoy Inferno. He's either as mad as a box of frogs or totally dedicated to roleplaying as a paranoid anglophobic conspiracy theorist. Whichever it is, the sheer lunacy of his posts always makes me smile.

    They were at cocktail parties patting themselves on the back and making sure they didn't say anything politically incorrect. If one were to raise the issue of the monarchy's involvement in child-rape rings, one might be called names.

    (Just cf. how hysterical the British imperialists here on this forum have acted when the issue has been raised previously. )

    Yes. However, we are legally forbidden from watching X-rated movies, or playing R-rated video games.

    I kid you not, some of the nanny state bullshit that goes on over here is fucking ridiculous.

    Assad continues to insist he has the overwhelming support of the Syrian people and army - on a day that 8,000 refugees and 23 army officers including 2 general flee to turkey.

    We do have an X classification but

    a. it only covers porn; excessively graphically violent movies are, in theory, banned.

    b. Every state has banned X - but the two territories have not leading to a thriving mail order business (and a massive under the counter trade).

    Funny sidenote: While it's technically illegal to sell X-rated videos in person here in Queensland, a company with a registered office in the NT or ACT can store DVDs in Queensland and mail them to people anywhere in Australia. So somewhere near Gympie - one of the most conservative towns in the msot conservativestate in the country - there's a gigantic warehouse full of porn DVDs and sextoys.

    The guy behind the Innocence Of Muslims film that sparked off riots has been arrested, charged, and jailed for probation violations.

    Shortly after Youssef left the courtroom, he issued a provocative statement through his solicitor, Steven Seiden.

    "The one thing he wanted me to tell all of you is President Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden, but he didn't kill the ideology," Seiden said.

    Asked what that meant, Seiden said, "I didn't ask him, and I don't know."

    Thank fuck. I can't believe it took so long to be dropped.

    That's pretty fascinating. So it's illegal to sell X movies in every state, but it's not illegal to possess them?

    I always heard Yahtzee the Australian video game critic bitch about it being hard to get games in Australia. Now it's starting to make sense.

    Here, IIRC it's legal to pay for sex but illegal to solicit it. I'm not entirely sure what the point is of doing laws like that, unless it's so people can turn a blind eye if they want.
