Dry cleaner WINS in $54 million dollar BS suit – There is hope after all!

(On Digg, this comment got 109 positive digg votes… including mine)

I don’t think the guy bringing the lawsuit ever thought he was going to win. He wanted to waste the dry cleaners’ time like he felt his time was wasted by them regarding the pants. He was basically abusing the justice system to make a point. IOW, the guy is a complete d*ck.

I think this comment pretty much sums up what could have been going on in the platiffs mind. I guess he figured he would never win such a lawsuit and NEVER get the amount he was asking for, but he just wanted to get back at the cleaners for losing his pants.

In other words this was the  most fantasically stupid lawsuit I have ever heard of. I think he should pay for the court fees, pay for the cleaners lawyers, and pay for the shop owners lost time dealing with this mess. I think the judge’s court record should be reviewed, I think he should be censured and maybe even thrown off the bench because OBVIOUSLY his judgment is impaired. Even if he did this to waste time and money of at the cleaners expense, asking for 51 million (and crying because of the “pain” he was in after loosing his pants) was the most absurd thing in this case.

The runner up for featured comment in this post is this…. I can’t believe that the cleaners offered the judge 12,000 to settle the case…  holycrapitsed certainly must have felt that, out of the whole case, this was the most ridiculous item.

CNN Dumps Michael Moore For Paris Hilton

And while CNN is showing this irrelevant news, I’m sure the Daily Show will have some actual news. Damn it’s sad what the news has become.

I think he pretty much sums up what is going on here in the new media age of the 21 Century.  While this comment got 63 positive comment diggs (the top voted comment got491 so far, I feel that it is actually the best comment for the story posted.

Why All The Censorship? HD-DVD Has Digg In Its Pocketbook.

Jesus, this is just some proof that diggers are complete and total morons. Instead of alerting people who could actually MAKE USE of the keys, the thirteen year old dateless lowlifes went around saying “09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0” in every fucking thread. Look at the outcomes.

1) HD-DVD encryption keys were changed
2) No HD-DVDs were actually played thanks to this valuable information
3) Digg was ruined for a day, who really wants to see eighty different ‘articles’ talking about 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0?
4) Regular threads were spammed with the string of numbers.
5) There are only a few HD-DVDs using these keys
6) Who the fuck even has an HD-DVD drive in there computer

Why not wait until more HD-DVDs were produced with the key / more people had the drives?

Why would Digg want the big companies to realize we new the key? What did you expect them to do, think “shit, they’ve got us now”? Fucking stupid. HD-DVD decryption was in our hands, and you fucking morons blew it. The story should never have been posted in the first place. The average Digger had no use for that information. It’s not like VLC Media player has an “input HD-DVD encryption key” dialoge box we could’ve used.

Thanks a lot, assholes. Rather than showing the encryption keys to people who could’ve actually used it for good, we showed it to the general public who turned it into some shitty meme. That’s all it is anymore, a shitty meme. We no longer have anything. You morons fucking ruined it.

WE CAN NO LONGER USE THE KEY “09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0”. THEY CHANGED THE KEY.

 

I agree with the mere fact that by posting this thing all over the place, you have now made it unusable. I think this was more about who controls Digg and what gets shown…

emildew of Digg Says: This procedure is done in less than 1% of 1% of all abortions

On Digg: BREAKING: Supreme Court Backs Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Procedure!!!

Featured Comment:

This procedure is done in less than 1% of 1% of all abortions. The only reason someone would have this done is to save the mother’s life (ie: she will actually DIE if she tries to continue the pregnancy) or because the life of the fetus would be so greatly affected by a birth defect of some kind that this is mercy. I’m talking about the kind of thing where the baby, if born, wouldn’t last an hour, or a day. Horrible deformities.

This is not a “method of birth control”. Doctors so rarely perform this procedure because it is hell on the mother, both mentally and physically.

@AlwaysDuggDown:
“the woman didn’t want to deal with a kid.”

How many children have you adopted? It isn’t just “dealing with a kid”. There are physical ramifications, and financial ones, and mental ones. I know women who I would really prefer not be mothers, and I know women who would die if they were to get pregnant and try to carry the baby to term.

Walk in someone else’s shoes, and don’t judge what you don’t know.

digg / IAmTroll / news / comments

digg / IAmTroll / news / comments

Apparently IAmTroll is a troll. What is a troll? On message forums, blogs and pretty much anywhere you can type up a responce in a comment section, thisis a person who basically annouys and says stuff that may or may not be on topic.

IAmTroll apparently gets dugg down in negative comments allot. but then again, he (or she) only has 6 comments on the entire site… so maybe IAmTroll can’t officially be called atroll but the comment made on Fox News: If not for Clinton, Americans would be afraid of Black president was pretty wack.

What was the comment?

By IAmTroll 22 hours ago:

America would be better if the black people didn’t vote.

1. On average, they are poorer than non-blacks; therefore, they vote in people who develop nanny states (welfare programs, food stamps), and steal from the rich/successful. We can see this today with all the Dems pandering to the poor minorities with “Universal Healthcare”.

2. Black culture is making America a stupider place; remember back in the 50’s during the Cold War when blacks didn’t have power–America was focused on science and engineering. Now all kids want to do is rap, and act/talk stupid.

3. Blacks are more violent than non-blacks, have far too many children beyond their means–further nurturing the nanny state because most don’t have good jobs. Blacks are less intelligent than non-blacks; they reproduce quickly, therefore are making stupider children–and now, intelligent kids’ schools are being dumbed down so the blacks don’t “feel bad”. (All established facts)

There you have it. Negative 64 digg. There are some very interesting answers that you might want to read includeing a point by point by another reader as to why IAmTroll has hit such a nerve.
