Out of Ammo

Jammed between the cheese eating surrender monkeys and the tulip chompers, very little has come out of Belgium except marauding German armies, twice!

So now we have something else about Belgium we can all laugh at.

[quote]BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Two Belgian beer fans have launched a video game named ‘Place to Pee’, which allows players to slalom down ski slopes or kill aliens while relieving themselves at urinals.

Werner Dupont, a software developer, and Bart Geraets, an electrical engineer, got the idea while drinking Belgian trappist beers, they told Reuters Television at a local festival on Sunday.

“This thing had to be invented by Belgian people and that’s what we are,” they said.

The ‘Place to Pee’ booth is designed for two users at a time and offers two games — blowing up aliens in outer space or skiing down a virtual slope. Gamers hit their target by aiming at sensors positioned on either side of the urinal.

A specially designed paper cone allows women to play too, the inventors say.[/quote]

Kill The Bill Campaign Launched!!

David Farrar, Bernard Darnton and I have launched the Free Speech Coalition to attempt to Kill the Bill. and we also have a Facebook Group ?

Please help us Kill the Bill ? while we still can.

We have launched the Free Speech Coalition. We want it to be a focal point for all individuals and organizations opposed to the Electoral Finance Bill. From it you can find out about all the ways in which this law will prevent free speech – it will regulate e-mails, websites, protest marches, placards, posters, newspaper ads – basically everything that mentions a political issue.

We plan to run an ad campaign. Our ads will educate New Zealanders about this Government's unprecedented assault on our cherished freedom of speech.

We've got a creative team waiting to get cracking. But we need your support and/or your money.

You can donate instantly online. You can also donate via Internet Banking to our BNZ Account 02 0500 0908920-00 or by sending a cheque to the Free Speech Coalition, PO Box 12270, Thorndon, Wellington.

Also you can sign up as a supporter, join our mailing list, place our banner on your own sites, or help out in other ways. We need your help. We can't rely on the politicians to protect our rights to criticize them. Once this Bill becomes law, then it will be too late.

So please help us to Kill the Bill.

David, Bernard & Cameron on behalf of "The Free Speech Coalition?
