Addiction is a scary thing

This will be me someday (click for the larger version).

That's really not funny at all. And neither is marines kidnapping and murdering innocent people.

It's like I always say: the few, the proud, the murderous, the fundamentalist, the Marines.

Um . . . what?

Steve, it's comments like that which led to my giving you a moniker including "the troll."

I take it you haven't been reading the newspapers lately. Apparently there are seven marines jailed on charges of murder, kidnapping, and the like.

I was trying to kill two birds by commenting on the cartoon, and also introducing a potential new topic for you. I really don't find the cartoon funny. I like the one about eating ramen out of a beaker though.

So here's the thing: I know people that addicted to video games. I myself have displayed, um, tendencies towards such behavior myself. So . . . I find it funny.

As for the marines, I actually had heard about that, but I hadn't realized you were referencing it.

As far as I'm aware, they haven't been officially charged with anything as of yet. They've had minimal contact with their lawyers. The marine higher-ups have seen fit, though, to have them locked in chains and leak details of their cases to the press.

Where's the ACLU on this one? It sure seems like these guys are going to be railroaded, guilty or not.

I think they were charged yesterday.
