Mental health problems…

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on November 28, 2007

 Here’s a great piece sent to me by a friend at MySpace – Props and cheers for the (unknown) writer!!

Recently a friend of mine went a little nuts and had to be put in a state mental institution for a while. Naturally, I was quite worried about him and called to check on his condition. When I called this is what I encountered:

“Hello and thank you for calling The State Mental Hospital. Please select from the following options menu:

If you are obsessive-compulsive, press 1 repeatedly.

If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2 for you.

If you have multiple personalities, press 3, 4, 5 and 6.

If you are paranoid, we know who you are and what you want, stay on the line so we can trace your call.

If you are delusional, press 7 and your call will be forwarded to the Mother Ship.

If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.

If you are manic-depressive, it doesn’t matter which number you press, nothing will make you happy anyway.

If you are dyslexic, press 9696969696969696.

If you are bipolar, please leave a message after the beep or before the beep or after the beep. Please wait for the beep.

If you have short-term memory loss, press 9. If you have short-term memory loss, press 9. If you have short-term memory loss, press 9.

If you have low self-esteem, please hang up our operators are too busy to talk with you.

If you are menopausal, put the gun down, hang up, turn on the fan, lie down and cry. You won’t be crazy forever.

If you are blonde, don’t press any buttons, you’ll just mess it up.”

My whole problem with this is that there was no option for me. Not one single option started out with “If you are a sexy monkey, press … whatever!” As you can guess I never got information about my friend! Can you suggest anything?

Another inconvenient truth: Al Gore’s Web site hacked

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on November 28, 2007

Noone’s safe these days…

Another inconvenient truth: Al Gore’s Web site hacked
The Web site for Al Gore’s film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ has been hacked.

Robert McMillan (IDG News Service) 27/11/2007 12:24:32

A blog set up to promote former US Vice President Al Gore’s film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” has been hacked and is hosting links to Web sites hawking online pharmaceuticals.

The links appear to have been created as part of a scheme to boost the Web traffic for sites that promote the drugs, security experts said Monday. They contain titles such as “Xanax On Line,” “Viagra,” and “Buy Valium Online.”

Cyber scammers have been using this technique for months now, packing hacked Web sites with links to their products in hopes of bumping up their rankings on search engines such as Google and Ask.com. Another similar tactic, known as “comment spam,” involves flooding the comment sections of Web sites with these types of links.

Because search engines give priority to pages that are linked to by very popular pages, adding links from the Inconvenient Truth blog would be a bonanza for scammers, according to Adam Thomas, a malware researcher at Sunbelt Software. The film’s blog has “such a high page ranking that they use that as sort of conduit to … gain a really high Google page rank, and hope that they can find some suckers to buy some medications online,” he said.

The climatecrisis.net domain, which hosts the blog, is registered to Al Gore, the star of the 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary on global warming. Not all pages on the site appear to have been compromised, security experts say; just those associated with the blog.

Though the drug-promoting links can be seen by the crawler software used by search engines, most visitors wouldn’t even know that they exist. On Monday, they couldn’t be seen on the Web page itself, but were visible in the blog’s source code — which only the people who maintain the Web site should be able to alter. The links point to Web pages on a site run by Westmont College, a small Christian college based in Santa Barbara, California. The Westmont College Web site also appears to have been hacked, Thomas said.

The hacked Westmont pages are in an early stage of development, but some of them were hosting blog pages that could ultimately be used to host ads for the drugs or even to link to other sites that actually sold the pharmaceuticals, Thomas said.

Thomas said attackers were most likely able to gain access to the blog by exploiting flaws in the WordPress Web publishing software used by both the Inconvenient Truth blog and Westmont College. Representatives for Al Gore and Westmont College could not be reached immediately for comment.

Once they gained access to the site, criminals could have easily added malicious exploit code to the blog, and that code could have been used to infect visitors’ PCs with computer viruses, said Roger Thompson, chief technology officer of Exploit Prevention Labs. “It just shows how tricky it is to secure a Web site,” he said. “I think we’re a bit lucky it’s not shooting exploits.”

The Importance of Signs!

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on November 24, 2007

The following article is an excellent example of how important and how significant are signs in
our lives… if Pt Addis beach had some descent signing no such misunderstandings would occur!
(That’s why i have this [bizarre] obsession about signs!!!)

Nude beach sex shock

Rebecca Tucker

25Nov07

A NAKED couple having sex at Pt Addis beach shocked a mother walking with her teenage daughter on Saturday afternoon.

Katrina Simpson said she was on the beach about 12.30pm with her husband and their teenage daughter when they came across the indecent act.

She said the couple was in full view, about 30m to the right of the beach access stairs, in the area designated for full clothing.

The Surf Coast beach is famous for its optional dress code, but that does not begin for about 1km to the left of the steps.

Mrs Simpson said the couple was to the right of the steps in the general access area.

But she said regardless of which section they were in, their sexual activity should not have been on public display.

“I’m not a wowser but I have great respect for our community and this is a community beach,” Mrs Simpson, a nearby resident for the past 25 years, said.

She telephoned the police after witnessing the incident.

Mrs Simpson earlier this year campaigned for better signage at the beach, raising concerns sunbathers did not know where the optional dress area began.

She said at the time that some male nudists used that as an excuse to parade naked in the general access area.

At the weekend she renewed calls to improve signage, beginning with postings on Pt Addis Rd so people were aware of the different zones before they got to the beach.

Mrs Simpson said apart from the couple having sex at the general access area, her family also came across a naked man reading his newspaper.

“He was still in the wrong area but he covered up with the paper, so at least he was being discreet,” she said.

“We’re coming to the start of the summer season and we’re going to have the same issues as last year unless something is done about it.

“It’s a national park so we have every right to be there and people may have a right to choose not to wear clothing but they don’t have to do it in our face, that’s what the other area is for.”

But Mrs Simpson said no area was suitable for public sex.

Wis. man upset over beer shoots goats

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on November 21, 2007

What a wonderful world…

Wis. man upset over beer shoots goats

WAUPACA, Wis. – A man who was upset with his wife for not buying beer took vengeance by shooting the family’s two pet goats, prosecutors say.

Peter W. Mischler, 48, was charged this week in Circuit Court with mistreatment of animals, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon.

The complaint said Mischler came home Monday from hunting and became angry with his 22-year-old daughter for letting the goats out and making a mess. While she was talking on the phone to her mother, authorities said, he told her to tell his wife to bring home some beer, but his wife refused because she was already on her way home.

He then threatened to shoot the goats, according to the complaint. After his wife arrived home, she and the daughter heard four gunshots.

“He shot both of them. He killed Flash, and the officer had to kill Chloe,” the daughter, Megan Mischler, said in a phone interview Wednesday. “I really don’t understand why he shot them — they didn’t deserve it.”

She said her father had been most angry about the mess the goats made, not the beer.

The family is now grieving the loss of the two goats, Megan Mischler said.

“We took those goats swimming, we took them to Dairy Queen to get ice cream, they were completely leash-trained,” she said, her voice trembling. “They were more than goats to us, they were more like a dog. And they didn’t deserve this.”

Peter Mischler was released on $1,000 bond. When The Associated Press called the home Wednesday evening, his wife said her husband was not available for comment.

Nea Makri’s hot Metal act : Tardive Dyskinesia

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on November 20, 2007

Some Metal for today… my hometown’s (Nea Makri,Greece) best Metal act : Tardive Dyskinesia! Formed in 1997 (as Override) ,playing a unique kind of Metal which is kinda difficult to be described,the best description though could be something like Alternative/Progressive/Death Metal the “Messughah” type… Got only one cd out at the moment (“Distorted Point of View”,2005),currently rehearsing for their second coming out early 2008. They’re signed in Venerate Industries,an Indie Greek label. They’re also unlucky of being Greek, if they were playing in whatever other European country or in the U.S. they would be one of the brand names in their scene…

Here’s their videoclip “Accelerated (R)evolution” from their debut cd “Distorting Point of View”

You can download it (mp4,17,49MB) HERE
