lol that was just dumb. PETA goes too far sometimes. Although after seeing Finding Nemo I can somewhat sympathize with this =/

PETA is really stupid. I like how South Park makes fun of them in the Election Day episode.

I also came across a PETA game mocking the Mario Brothers and KFC. It's a bit graphic and if you want to find it just do a Google search. Mario well the impersonator kills chickens until he reaches the KFC restaurant. Something about how horrible the conditions of Chickens in KFC ranches are or something like that.

I just found it funny how they had to besmirch the good name of Mario. No one makes a mockery of Mario Brothers and gets away with it. Not even this lame ass excuse of an organization. Their down fall will come soon enough and I hope it's from what they protect. The animals will riot against them, claiming that they don't want idiots to represent them.

lol yeah true, I didn't think of that.

And then we'll have to rename other things like Seakitten and Chips, SeaKitten Sticks, and some other retarded edits.

Seriously if I didn't already know PETA was insane and with lots of time on it's hand then this would take the cake.

http://blogs.usatoday.com/ondeadline/2009/08/illinois-man-gets-jail-time-for-yawning-in-court.html

Man yawns in court and receives close to 6 months in jail, however it is said it has been bumped down to 21 days.

Even if it was a loud or unruly yawn, it's a bit extreme.

Just a taste of what our finest justice systems are capable of. They can't fry the real threats, so hey why not take out someone less significant so we look like we're doing our job!

Wait you need to drop classes? Well I think if it's before college begins you'll get a full refund. It should go that way for books to, just go back to the bookstore with receipt handy. You should get a refund, if you don't that's bull, or at least bookstore credit.

Oh well if it's the same book from the school then if worst comes to worst just sell it back to them for some money...though if it's anything like my college was then they'll probably only give you like five dollars or something.

Yeah it's better to sell it to others for a third or half what you paid for it.

Yeah but what sucks is even if they are required some professors don't even mention or touch the books, so it's a complete waste. Or they only have the students use it once or twice throughout the whole semester which is the only time you'll need it, also a waste. It really sucks to have to pay for something that isn't used that much.

^ at first it wasnt too bad. but then i found out im going to be in a suite with five other people and although i get my own room with one other person...i just dont like the idea of six people having to share the same outside space...like there's a little living room type of thing and a bathroom we all share. since i dont know how they're putting us all together, i dont want to be sharing a suite with girls who are going to be drinking all the time and bringing boys into the suite all the time. i know my roommate and she already told me she would never do that since it is kind of rude...but i dont know about the other girls. and that's what im not looking forward to...

and ill miss my kitty who sleeps with me every night =D
