It looks like Blade Runner is going to be homeless after coming out of prison, don't you say?

Pistorius guilty. I can't see how he can have the gall to deny the accusations. He's lost all self-respect. What did he say? He didn't have his legs, so he decided to shoot through the door. He didn't realise that his girlfriend was staying there? Did he not think to shout a warning? Ballocks. It's horrible. He can cry all he wants - he deliberately killed that girl. I don't fancy his chances with the Numbers in Pretoria Central. He'll be raped, he'll be beaten, he'll be HIV+.

Assuming he is telling the truth (which I don't believe for a second), it is typical that Pistorius's first action was to come out with guns blazing and ask questions later. Typical of the times I suppose.

Well, in general, why would a human ask questions before pulling out a weapon if that person could be armed and dangerous... nobody wants to take a risk so you can "supposedly" back him up on that case if it were true.

As opposed to perhaps saying "I have a gun and it is pointed at the door. Identify yourself." And, of course, since he was sure his girlfriend was still in bed sleeping, he could have called to her to phone the police. That's what a rational person might have done. And at very little risk. Instead he started blasting away like Rambo.

Not everyone would do that even though that is a better decision.

Not in your country anyway. Which explains why you've averaged more than 18 gun deaths every day since the Newtown shootings. Sit back and enjoy the carnage. You can track it here. Each body comes with a name and citation. Note the appalling number of children.

Harvard has graduated some 52 billionaires, with a collective fortune of $205 billion. That ranks them number one!

The standard gold bar held as gold reserves by central banks and traded among bullion dealers weighs 12.4 kg (438.9 ounces). Gold ingots/bars produced by pouring the molten metal into molds near the mining operation can be as heavy as 60 pounds.

Compare the 52 billionaires with the actual number of graduates to see what your chances are of hitting the jackpot.

... ummm, harvard still comes at number one? but it is true, once they become rich, in a way, they drop out.

One can safely assume that a lot of these 52 billionaires were involved in the big mortgage swindle during the years leading up to 2008.

And not one has ever been charged with a crime. In fact, they were heavily rewarded for their malfeasance. It was a great racket. The banks provided mortgages to people who couldn't afford them, then foreclosed on those mortgages and got paid back from taxes paid by those same people. Now they are renting back the houses that were basically given to them by the government. What else can you expect when someone like David Koch says things like "I only want my fair share, which is all of it".

OJ is definitely bad for your health, especially if your name is Nicole Brown Simpson

Washington has spent $791 billion on “homeland security” since 9/11.

Wow, I heard that on the news and RJ you are right!

I don't think or picture Canada or Mexico can spend that much money and not get any results.

Or most third party countries.

For comparison, in 2013 dollars, FDR spent $500 billion on pulling America out of the Great Depression. That money was spent on infra-structure projects that not only put money in the hands of workers (consumers) who then spent that money, thereby putting more people back to work to satisfy the demand for goods and services, but also benefited the country as a whole. In contrast, that $791 billion has disappeared down a massive bottomless hole.
