Weird. For the last day or so phone posts have broken my friends page. It's like they have a close html tag, as the page ends at the bottom of the phone post. At first I thought it was just jameth having fun breaking the system, but then a phone post from metaphorge did the same thing.

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug." "Do you want a room with or without a view?"

Something to turn stomachs, and make a PETA video with...

This woman has a number of videos out for "crushing" fetishists. That is a fetish where you get off on crushing (killing) things with your feet. So far I've seen float acros the various WTF type communities one where she crushs worms, on for largish bugs, one for mice. And not this one where she crushes/kill rabbits. Mind you, I suspect the rabbit is already dead, as there is a lack of blood, but either way, this lady needs some help...

Stolen word for word from broken_gizmo:

So, as many of you know, South Dakota has recently decided to trample on women's rights and medical safety. This has outraged a good many of us. However, it has in particular outraged a woman in a unique position to do something about it.

The President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe on the Pine Ridge Reservation,Cecilia Fire Thunder, was incensed. A former nurse and healthcare givershe was very angry that a state body made up mostly of white males,would make such a stupid law against women.

“To me, it is now a question of sovereignty,” she said to melast week. “I will personally establish a Planned Parenthood clinic onmy own land which is within the boundaries of the Pine RidgeReservation where the State of South Dakota has absolutely nojurisdiction.”

See the rest of the story here.

Two things went through my mind when I read this. The first was, "Oh, rock on!." The second was, "How can I help this woman?"

Well, the amazing kathrynt, from whose journal I first learned of this, did some legwork. In fact, she called the Office of the President of the Sioux Tribe of Pine Ridge, and actually spoke with Ms. Fire Thunder.

Details on how to help Ms. Fire Thunder and her cause can be found in kathrynt's journal, at the above link, though I'll include it here again:

I can't think of a more wonderful way to give the legislators in South Dakota a much-needed boot to the head.

(Permission to link to kathrynt's journal given by her in the post referenced.)

There you have it. See if you can help.

I recently got an iPod video, and I only run linux at home. I've had good success transferring songs to my iPod uing gtkpod, and I've seen a utility for managing photo albums, and I've seen utilities for converting video formats to work on the iPod, but I have not seen any applications specifically for putting video's on the iPod. Does such a utility exist? If so, where can I find it?
