This is a fun game, even if it hadn’t heard of the 3 characters I’d chosen from the films I’d watched last (All Over Me, The Dark Hour & My Wrongs 8245-8249 and 117). I tried to give it an easy one but it still took it a few guesses to get Mathilda from Leon.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHAT HOW EVEN. THIS WAS IMPOSSIBLE.
HOW THE FUCK DID HE GET THIS, I ANSWERED NO TO LIKE EVERY QUESTION.
WHAT. THE. FUCK. I’m doing it again and again until I outsmart it.
Okay I was technically thinking of Mark, but I guess given the types of questions it asked, it could also be Roger. Plus it asked “Is your character in love” and I said yes, which may have been the most misleading bit, BUT HE DOES LOVE MAUREEN OKAY. That’s still pretty impressive, I think.
Nope, I was thinking of Korra.
It took sixty questions, but it finally guessed Matteo Alacran from The House of the Scorpion.
how did it guess it when i said “i don’t know” over and over what.
I gave him like 7 tries, and then he got shitty with me. What the fuck, dude? IT WAS GINGER FOUTLEY!
seriously he guessed jeff rosenstock,nick andopolis and philip k dick. fucking smug motherfucker
Trawling through the 2,200 charities and voluntary organisations facing Local Authority funding cuts listed on False Economy, widely reported in the press yesterday, makes for extremely bleak reading.
After school clubs for kids, Christmas lunches for old people, wheelchair loan services, sexual health advisory services, meals on wheels, support services for disabled children, all axed. Welcome to the Big Society.
I was particularly taken aback by the number of women’s sector organisations and violence against women and girls (VAWG) services that have faced cuts.
Abortion: faith-based pregnancy counselling centres found wanting
Evidence of poor practice and factually incorrect advice discovered following undercover investigation

Women receiving advice from pregnancy counselling centres run by faith-based organisations are subjected to scaremongering, emotive language and inaccurate information about abortion, according to an undercover investigation by a pro-choice charity.
When it began back in 1981, Tom Tom Club was a side project of Talking Heads’ rhythm section: the bass of Tina Weymouth and the drums of Chris Frantz. Tom Tom Club’s music was a staple of parties and clubs back then, and the music took on a life of its own in various samples and remakes — most notably the pop hit “Genius of Love.”
It turns out that, all these years later, the band has regrouped. It’s now touring and releasing a live album from those early days, titled Genius of Live.
In the creative spirit that inspired Tom Tom Club in the first place, the band put together a special acoustic set for its Tiny Desk Concert. You’ll hear that famous “Genius” melody line played here on accordion by Bruce Martin, with rhythms from a washboard (by Mystic Bowie), a cowbell (by Chris Frantz), an egg shaker (by Kid Ginseng) and small drums (by Fuzz).
Here, Weymouth plays her bass lines on an acoustic guitar, and she and Victoria Clamp have all the fun singing — not only in “Genius of Love,” but also in “Wordy Rappinghood.” (The band also performs a nice zydeco tune led by Mystic Bowie.) All in all, it was simply a blast — one of the most energetic and joyful concerts in our series so far.
Jeremy Hunt has just said he’ll allow Murdoch to own all of BSkyB. We have just three days to flood the government’s public consultation with requests to stop the deal.
We’ve done it before — in the last consultation Hunt said our avalanche of 40,000 messages delayed the deal as his officials had to read each email carefully, fearing a legal challenge. But the government is pushing the deal through despite the hacking scandal of murdered Milly Dowler — the latest grim episode that shows howMurdoch’s media tramples standards and ignores ethics.
Murdoch already controls more of our media than is legal in many countries – and is notorious for using his power to skew our politics. The official consultation ends this Friday — let’s tell the government we don’t want his media empire to control our largest commercial broadcaster. Send a message now — using your own words to make it stand out — calling on Jeremy Hunt and David Cameron to refuse Murdoch’s BSkyB deal until there’s a full Competition Commission review and a full public inquiry into phone hacking.”
Charities which provide abortions could be stripped of their ability to also counsel women, under plans being considered by the government. … The announcement has sparked alarm among abortion providers who warned the change would delay women accessing the treatment they needed and insisted there was no evidence that the current system was not working.
Charities including the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) and Marie Stopes offer the compulsory counselling women must undertake before they make a decision on termination.
The Department of Health are also pushing for the amendments by Nadine Dorries and Frank Field to become a reality without the need for a vote in parliament, as we pointed out last week.
I believe that for the purpose of clarity and in order that any change cannot be easily reversed in the future, that the provision requires primary legislation. I have sought a meeting with the Secretary of State to discuss how we can best meet our joint objectives in the full knowledge that this amendment has huge public support”
She not only want to push it through without a vote, she wants to make it much harder for a future Labour government to reverse these changes.
I wrote this angry rant about Duke Nukem and rape culture over on my blog; I usually talk about Video Games and Doctor Who and Linux and board games over there, but in this post, the topic strayed into Feminism much more than usual, so I thought I’d share it with the Hub. Enjoy!
A Silsbee High School cheerleader took her school to court when they kicked her off the squad for refusing to cheer her own rapist.
The week of May 5, 2011 the Supreme Court refused to hear the case and is requiring her family pay the school $45,000 in legal fees.
We want to help – and we want to give you the opportunity to help too.
This girl was raped at the age of 16. When she spoke out against the star athlete, she had to deal with constant harassment from her fellow students. The administration’s way of coping with this treatment was to suggest she avoid the cafeteria and not go to Homecoming. Her rape counselor encouraged her to continue all the activities she did before the rape, so she stayed on the squad, an activity she loved.
She went to the games and cheered for the entire team, but when it came time to cheer her rapist’s name individually as he shot a free throw, she simply crossed her arms and stayed silent. She was summarily, and publicly, kicked off the squad. Her family went to court.
An ABC News article from October 2010 says :
“It frustrates me,” said the teen, who is referred to by her initials H.S. in court documents. “All I’ve wanted out of this all along is for somebody to say they’ve done wrong.”She insists, however, that the fight is worth it, if only to give other rape victims a reason to stand up for themselves.“If everything works out the way that we’re hoping … then it makes a point that it’s not all right,” she said. “And if we keep fighting for that, then maybe other people will too.”
Unfortunately, things did not work out the way they hoped. We have included links below so you can research the incident yourselves and make the decision you feel is right. Our opinion, regardless of the legal issues, is that this girl has been punished enough.
