That site could be used for great evil. ;D ;D

Hum.  I clicked on the site, and it was very sad, because it started making fun of Beaker.  (At first I wondered who it could be talking to, since it obviously wasn't refering to me.  Then I realized it must have been talking about my bird.  It might be right, but that still isn't very nice.)

I think Beaker has eaten EUOL and has now taken his spot on the message board.

I posted this over at AORP this morning, too, but thought I'd cross-post to be sure. This was emailed to my company as a press release. I thought you'd all find it immensely amusing.
...


for immediate Release


Contact:

[email protected]

The present press release is sent to a selected number of media contacts which created the most compatible impression with us become.

If you would like to get our occasional press releases no more henceforth, then, you please answer this e-mail with the word “enfernen” in the reference line.
Consequently, we will immediately take you from our dispatcher list.


“Gothic against terror”

On the basis of the bad force file of the Satanic - Pair of Ruda and the Erfurter amuck, I have established the campaign “Gothics against terror”. So far, it is present in the internet exclusively under http://www.gothic-against-terror.com. The fatal defamation of the Gothik-scene and also the consequently concerned people, is allowed to and can be tolerated no more longer. The base picture of our society, incorrect, immediately should become corrected before it assumes serious social sizes. The coverage of the media is based exclusively on Unknown, claims and bad, slanderous Talkabout.Die Gothik - movement has nothing, but also not the lowest with the dreadful satanics mean! Satanics are not to be identified through their optics, that something marks them its the single belief alone. Sound investigations prove that they avoid even all sensation strictly.

Exclusively the media world possesses the Possebility, our society the real facts, to mediate over the Gothik's. Fact is, Gothiks express their personal life attitude like every other grouping. Unfortunately, the people immediately associate the evil and the death with this admittedly very bizzaren style. This grouping gives serious thought only very critically to topic to the taboo
death on that occasion. They accept it as an obvious component of the human existence. The society cannot understand that black lets also beautiful things bandaged with the color. As for example melancholy, romanticism, protection and security. their interests are directed at the lyric, the Middle ages, old graveyards, vampire stories, that of Mytologie as well as various occult Themes. Occult is on no account with the evil, however, to equate. It is the fascination of the fear, miraculous phenomenons and white magic. It happens from pure interest and on no account in the intent, to practice angry rituals. they embody a peaceful way of life, extend rather back and occupy itself with their thoughts and the sense of the life.

Through the immense prejudices, they are met with very big refusal in the everyday life, partial is even made unbearable it them. Angry gazes, insults, to be served even the refusal. The fear that somebody from fear of the "supposedly satanic thought property “some dreadful one could commit, lies consequently very draws near. One can let do it so far come by no means.

It would be the modified media certainly more profitable not to revise reality. The topic Satanism can be wiped out to the suffices, delivers headlines. However, the Constitution of the human dignity should not be changed to this case by the freedom of the press.

I'm always impressed by what translator programs are able to pull off--no matter how eloquent the original piece, they turn it into laughable (but usually intelligible) English. It's a question I've always wondered about Star Trek--when they use the universal translators, does it make them sound like backwater hicks to whatever new race they've just encountered? When aliens come to Earth and try to communicate, will they all talk like hillbillies?

I can't remember if this has been posted at some point in the past, but it's very amusing.

I was looking through old posts on this thread catching up and I ran across the triangle problem. It didn't bother me. I don't really see what the problem is. The shapes are in different spots so the conglomerate shape looks different. What's weird about that?

I liked the Gord page though Tage. That was cool.

The weird part, Prometheus, is the area. Putting the shapes in different spots does not change the total area of the four shapes. It's not a matter of the conglomerate shape looking different, it's a matter of there suddenly being a hole in the middle of it that should not, technically, be there. Moving shapes around does not change their area.

(Well, unless you cheat, like this guy did, and hide it with thick lines.)
