My mom put...

Uncov on Arrington's unexpected expectoration →
marco: I think it’s hilarious that some guy spit in Mike Arrington’s face. I think it’s even more hilarious that Arrington thinks he’s somehow spiting the internet by taking a month off from blogging. Take the whole year, Mike! Arrington’s attitude and style create enemies. While I don’t wish physical harm on anyone (apparently he got some serious threats last year), spitting in your face isn’t...

Okay so the recent news about the lady having 1 baby short of fielding a baseball team with 8 babies. The News gets so excited but isn’t there something unnatural about all of this?

And in this...
