Even the stupid and fuckity that is your keepage of the 60% cannot delay me.

Yours with Shaft!

I was pissed that someone in SD got MY Powerball ticket

But at least there's this:

Good day,

I am Jian-Wen Peng, a transfer supervisor operations in investment section in Bank of China Ltd, Hong Kong.I have a obscured business suggestion for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client General Mohammed Jassim Ali who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during the war and early this year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that the general and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home. After further investigation it was also discovered that General Mohammed Jassim Ali did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.

What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 5 years the unds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to General Mohammed Jassim Ali so that you will be able to receive his funds.Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me, 40% for you. If interested please do send your response to my personal email

Kind Regards
Jian-Wen Peng.

Can't find the new Wilco, but found this

New Wilco song "You Never Know" isn't on the inter-tubes yet, but this collaboration with Fleet Foxes is really nice.

Headline of the day

Is Rush Limbaugh secretly Jesus Christ?

I am going out on a limb and saying "no, no he's not."

You can decide here.

Glenn Greenwald on Maria... I mean SONIA Sotomayor

Debunking the notion that Sotomayor is too emotional, using his actual experience arguing a case in front of Sotomayor (take that every fucking talking head pundit who can't pronounce her last name or remember her first name):

Without a trace of sympathy or even interest in the plight of the plaintiff, Sotomayor methodically recounted the evidence of discrimination and, in as coldly and legalistic a manner as possible, concluded that the Norville "produced insufficient evidence at trial to show that the hospital" discriminated against her.
