And I’m going to.

The Man Who Hacked Hollywood

Really interesting read. I’m torn as to how to feel about Chris Chaney. He invaded the private lives of American citizens, yes. However, he could’ve easily done a lot worse with the information he claims to have had access to. And to know he’s facing up to SIXTY years in jail for hacking Scarlett Johannsen’s email. Ehhh … not sure the punishment fits the crime.

AHHHHHHHH.

Ninjas, News and Politics
Iran has suspended Reuters’ accreditation in the country over a story the news agency ran on Iranian women practicing the art of ninjutsu. 
At issue is wording in the Reuters report that called the women “ninja assassins” with the perceived implication that they’re training to protect the country from Western infidels.
In a statement, Reuters writes:

The story’s headline, “Thousands of female Ninjas train as Iran’s assassins”, was corrected to read “Three thousand women Ninjas train in Iran”.
Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance subsequently contacted the Reuters Tehran bureau chief about the video and its publication, as a result of which Reuters’ 11 personnel were told to hand back their press cards.
“We acknowledge this error occurred and regard it as a very serious matter. It was promptly corrected the same day it came to our attention,” said editor-in-chief Stephen J. Adler.

Meantime, some of the women are suing Reuters for misrepresenting them.
“Reuters has introduced us as assassins to the whole world,” says one. ”The truth must come to light and everyone should know that we are only a group of athletes. We are supervised by the Ministry of Sports and the federation of martial arts.”

Let me say just state that I am 100% pro-ninja assassin in any form.

Racist Hunger Games Fans Are Disappointed

I don’t get being a racist. And I especially don’t get racists who make ignorant, racial comments on a social media platform like Twitter.
