Egypt imports 21 tons of tear gas from the US, port staff refuses to sign for it

Fuck yeah:

The arrival of 7 and half tons of tear gas to Egypt's Suez port created conflict after the responsible officials at the port refused to sign and accept it for fear it would be used to crackdown on Egyptian protesters.

The gas used has angered activists, who say the effects of exposure has yet to wear off, with a number of protesters telling Bikyamasr.com that they have coughing fits, chest pains, blurred vision and their arms often shake. According to the Journal of Royal Medicine, the use of CS Gas -- the most common choice of Egypt's police last week -- can have lasting symptoms for over one year.

Egypt's al-Shorouk newspaper reported that upon the arrival of the shipment, massive disagreements broke out between employees, where five employees refused to sign for the shipment, one after the other.

The five, being dubbed by activists as the "brave five", were to be refereed to a investigative committee as to why they refused to perform their duties, which has since called off.

Scooby-Doo and Secular Humanism

I'm not sure how it happened. One day you're just going along, living your life as normal, and the next you're frothing at the mouth in rage over a Cartoon Network original movie because it violated the very premise of the franchise! Somewhere along the line, I woke up one morning with some very strong opinions about Scooby-Doo. [...]

Which is why the existence of the supernatural just doesn't work within the framework of Scooby-Doo. It wouldn't work even if it were done in such a way that they were discovering the truth that real monsters actually existed against a disbelieving public, which is a premise that's been done really well elsewhere. There's an underlying logic to the world of Scooby-Doo that just boils down to Reason vs. Superstition, and in that battle, superstition can never win.

T-600 series needs eyeliner too.

Apparently Pugh has a makeup line now. It may not surprise you to discover that it is shades of gray and purple, specially-formulated for the eyebrowless schwa-faced replicant population of the domed hellscape you call home.

Judges will allow that.
