Oh snap, guys.

I think I might be signing up for Russian instead of French.

Should I, y/n?

French may be a little easier to learn without a class, yes?

French is definitely easier. And I love the language.

Is Fox News still showing Twitter names? Can we stop them like we stopped CNN?

State Tv just aired 2 election specialist(!) talking about it's impossible for election to be fraud cause we're talking about 10M difference

I really fucking hate CNN. My god, this network is ... urgh. At least, FOX News doesn't hide it's bias. At least, MSNBC admits they are the channel for lefties. But CNN, they are fucking dumb. I don't know what to say about them. They always seem to show the ~other~ side of the story no matter HOW weak it is. It could be a story about wrongfully killing PUPPIES. And they'll be like "Is this right? Here's Puppy Hating Asshole #305 telling his side of the story. We'll let you decide."

Urgh.

Yeah seriously. If a meteor were about to hit the earth they'd be like "...which SOME say is a bad thing. But let's hear from the meteor's spokeswoman."

I might have to stop following Tom Felton right now. His tweet about Megan fucking Fox came after NextRevolution's fear for her daughter's life. I can't take these stupid updates right now.
nograviity 16th-Jun-2009 07:32 pm (UTC)
RIGHT? I just, I had to resist the urge to yell at him. Who cares about Megan Fox? She's hot, she's always hot, save the comments about her for June 24th.

If you're on twitter, please post to warn people not to use @AnonymousInIran.

Do we actually have confirmation on this?

As in, who is Anthony Papillion?

Hey guys. I/we put together a first aid tumblr last night, if you could retweet it that would be awesome.

The defeated candidate? CNN? What?
What do the words " disputed election" mean to you?

Nothing, apparently.

More on the journalists, from HuffPo:

Greg Mitchell gets an eerie note from NYT executive editor Bill Keller:

i'm writing, and it's getting late. my visa's up tomorrow and i have to go.

the iranians watch us closely, seem to know where we are much of the time. yesterday i took a five-hour drive to isfahan, in western iran (details TK in the nyt) and on the way we stopped to take a peek at the holy city of qom. as we were making a loop through that city, my translator got a call on his cell phone from the ministry that oversees the press: "please tell me, what is your program in qom.

some reporters have contemplated overstaying their visas, trying to work under the radar. even if you manage to elude the authorities, though, you create real dangers for all the iranians you would need to hide you, translate for you, get you around and help you get the story out.

Rachel, I think, had someone (I don't remember who) on last night whose visa had expired and he crossed the border at like, 11:55pm, and made the situation with foreign reporters working at visa deadlines kind of perilous. Freaky.

I think I'm caught up on everything I missed. This shit is frightening. I'm so happy ontd_p is here while my brothers insist on playing PS3. I get the feeling that I would want to stab CNN anyway.

Okay, does anyone know how to work green into an uniform? I work at Jamba Juice, and I still haven't figured out a way that doesn't involve makeup but completely noticeable. I would wear a green shirt under my white polo, but I live in Vegas so I don't like to double up my shirts in the summer.

wear a green ribbon on your wrist, or maybe even paint your nails green if it's possible :D
