I don’t know how many of you guys are still RSSing this blog or how how many people still sub to this blog, but as far as I can say, this blog has moved to thegrassholeshow.tumblr.com which is actually my personal tumblr for inquiries. TGS isn’t gone we just had a shifting of areas since tumblr fits into my schedule nicely so future posts will be over there instead of over here.

An Hero Day

Leave a comment

 

So ya, it’s 9/11 again, and we’re ready to An Hero our economy some more, but let’s have Obama have his word on this matter.

 

Marking the Eleventh Anniversary of 9/11

 

Today, President Obama and the First Lady marked the eleventh anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

They began the day at the White House, observing a moment of silence on the South Lawn just after 8:45 a.m., around the time the first plane hit the north tower of the World Trade Center. Afterward, they traveled to the Pentagon, where the President spoke at a memorial service in honor of those who died there, as well as in New York and Pennsylvania.

This anniversary allows us to renew our faith that even the darkest night gives way to a brighter dawn. Today, we can come here to the Pentagon, and touch these names and kneel beside a building where a single stone still bears the scars of that fire. We can visit the field of honor in Pennsylvania and remember the heroes who made it sacred.  We can see water cascading into the footprints of the Twin Towers, and gaze up at a new tower rising above the New York skyline.

And even though we may never be able to fully lift the burden carried by those left behind, we know that somewhere, a son is growing up with his father’s eyes, and a daughter has her mother’s laugh — living reminders that those who died are with us still.

So as painful as this day is and always will be, it leaves us with a lesson that no single event can ever destroy who we are. No act of terrorism can ever change what we stand for. Instead, we recommit ourselves to the values that we believe in, holding firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess.

That’s the commitment that we reaffirm today. And that’s why, when the history books are written, the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division. It will be a safer world; a stronger nation; and a people more united than ever before.

Vice President Biden marked the anniversary by traveling to Shanksville, PA, where he delivered remarks at the Flight 93 National Memorial Commemorative Service to honor the passengers and crew who died there 11 years ago today. The Vice President told the families who lost loved ones that day that the heroism of their husbands, wives, sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers would never be forgotten.

Today we stand on this hallowed ground, a place made sacred by the heroism and sacrifice of the passengers and the crew of Flight 93. And it’s as if the flowers, as I walked here, as if the flowers were giving testament to how sacred this ground is.

My guess — and obviously it’s only a guess; no two losses are the same. But my guess is you’re living this moment that Yeats only wrote about, when he wrote, pray I will and sing I must, but yet I weep. Pray I will, sing I must, but yet I weep.

My personal prayer for all of you is that in every succeeding year, you’re able to sing more than you weep.  And may God truly bless you and bless the souls of those 40 incredible people who rest in this ground.

 

So after a heartfelt day of honoring thy dead, let’s move onto Japan’s famous an heroes…their citizens.

 

Men Busted for Cheerleader Snaps: “Isn’t That The Point?”

Author: Artefact

 

Police have arrested two men for the crime of photographing a group of cheerleaders on a stage, although some have criticised them for an excess of diligence when all the men were found to have taken photographs of was their thighs.

The incident occurred at a Kanagawa prefecture high school “culture” festival where a group of 27 high school girls were performing a cheerleader dance on stage.

Two men in the audience, a 36-year-old civil servant working for the prefecture and a 43-year-old banker, disgracefully attempted to film the girls as they cavorted, taking close-ups of their bare thighs and clothed bodies.

A vigilant teacher noticed them brazenly using their cameras and decided they were suspicious, and their photographs were checked by teachers at the school’s staff room and they were reported to police as voyeuristic perverts.

The pair admit photographing the girls, saying they did it together as part of a “hobby,” and that they met at another such event and have been photographing other schoolgirls in public as well.

They have both been charged with indecent activities and trespass for attending the show in the first place.

There has been a certain amount of confusion amongst Japanese as to how photographing cheerleaders on a stage constitutes criminal voyeurism:

“What is wrong with photographing cheerleaders?”

“How can you get arrested for this?”

“How is this voyeurism?”

“If you don’t want people taking photographs or watching them why hold a cheerleader show on a stage?”

“But they only took photos of their thighs?”

“If photographing anyone but your friends is a crime, they might as well ban cameras.”

“Since when is photography banned at these events…”

“It’s creepy but I don’t see any crime.”

“Yet this is legal:”

 

 

“They should arrest that NHK cameraman then.”

“Odd that all the paparazzi photographers never get arrested just because they do it for money.”

“They are doing it for the money rather than to satisfy their lust, so it’s quite different.”

“Doing it for the money frankly seems more creepy than just doing it out of lust…”

“What about NHK and its cameramen taking pictures of wet schoolgirls getting uplifted by typhoons?”

 

“I thought the whole point of cheerleaders was the short skirts and panchira.”

“And yet the mass media happily photographs gymnastics and beach volleyball all the time.”

“It seems excessive that these two get their names dragged through the national press for this when there are murderers and worse who never have their names made public.”

“Why just arrest them like that? You’d think they’d at least warn them to stop photographing. It’s not even clear if the school bothered telling anyone it had banned photography.”

“I reckon they could get away with this if they took normal photographs and then just enlarged the bits they were interested in on their computers later.”

“They took photos of their thighs, they are obviously guilty!”

“It was only a close-up though? And not even of their underwear.”

“The whole point of cheerleaders is to show off the girls though…”

“They obviously weren’t supposed to be at the event either.”

“You lot wouldn’t like it if a bunch of creepy old guys were photographing your thighs whilst you were up on stage either.”

“How can a public performance in a public place possibly constitute ‘voyeurism’ or ‘peeping’?”

“This country is becoming seriously oppressive.”

“If this is a crime, then the cheerleaders themselves must be guilty of public indecency.”

“Nice to see our police and teachers have their priorities straight – kids are being bullied to death in schools, and they focus on the important stuff like this.”

 

I’ll see you guys on the flipside.

Grass out.

You know, when I get incredibly busy working on shit and then completely forget about a few other things like this blog? Ya well, it’s gonna a major hiatus cause I’m doing other shit, prolly touhoustuck or whatevs…My tumblr and facebook page should keep you up-to-date, on major things, so check there. The pages I linked one is more active than the other cause, I don’t really post much stuff on the TGS page anymore. I may if there are more followers, but there’s very little point for me to do it if I get so few views on it. Still, check in from time to time, there’s usually a news story once in a while, but don’t expect to see much.

 

Here’s a round up post from EqD till I get back.

The Pony Show: Weekend Edition – Neil Armstrong Dies

Leave a comment

“Ad Astra Per Aspera”

 

So guys, I know it’s been a while since I did much posting on here, but here’s a good headliner for you. The first man to set foot on the moon, dies…on the moon. Okay he didn’t die on the moon, but it was good banter. The pic and caption up there you see was from the Aperture Science page on Facebook, and before anyone asks, yes that’s Latin for “To the stars and beyond’.

 

Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, dies

 

Armstrong was commander of the Apollo 11 mission that made the first manned lunar landing on July 20, 1969. He had undergone heart surgery Aug. 8, three days after his 82nd birthday. His family said that Armstrong had passed from post-surgery complications.

“We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures,” the family said in a statement. “Neil was our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.”

As he stepped off the lunar module and set foot on the moon’s surface, he said “that’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” underscoring a centuries-old fantasy among human kind and a high point in the Cold War era space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. An estimated 500 million TV viewers watched the event, engrossed by the surreal, grainy black-and-white footage.

The notoriously publicity shy Armstrong was a reluctant hero. In an era of celebrity adulation, Armstrong refused to sign autographs or grant interviews, giving only infrequent speeches. “I don’t want a living memorial,” he once said. He reluctantly joined fellow Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins in anniversary celebrations of the moon landing.

Armstrong flew Navy fighter jets during the Korean War, flying nearly 80 missions and later became a test pilot before joining the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, as part of its second group of astronauts. Armstrong commanded Gemini 8 in 1966, which suffered near disaster until he used a back-up system to stop an uncontrolled capsule spin and made an emergency landing in the Pacific Ocean.

Armstrong’s prowess was again demonstrated following the moon landing, when it was later revealed that lunar module had just 20 seconds of fuel left when he steered to avoid large boulders before touching down in the Sea of Tranquility.

The self-described nerd downplayed hero status.

“I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,” he said a February 2000 appearance. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.”

Born in tiny Wapakoneta, Ohio, Armstrong took his first flight as a six year old, fueling a lifetime passion for aviation. He attended Purdue University to study aeronautical engineering before the Korean War, later earning a master’s degree at the University of Southern California.

The lunar landing made him more popular than his hero, aviator Charles Lindberg, but Armstrong shunned the spotlight. After walking on the moon, he lived a mostly private life, buying a farm and teaching aerospace engineering at the University of Cincinnati until 1979.

When he appeared in Dayton in 2003 to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of powered flight, he bounded onto a stage before 10,000 people packed into a baseball stadium. But he spoke for only a few seconds, did not mention the moon, and quickly ducked out of the spotlight.

“Neil Armstrong was a pioneer of flight and that is how he would want to be remembered,” says space historian John Logsdon, author of JFK and the Race to the Moon. “In his mind he flew all kinds of vehicles that set record firsts, and one of them happened to be the first one on the moon.”

Armstrong basically saw himself as an aviator first and foremost, part of the long tradition of American pilots going back to the Wright Brothers, Logsdon says.

“For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request,” his family said in a Saturday statement. “Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”

“He will be part of history forever,” Logsdon said.

So there you have it guys, the man was a Hero, not An Hero.

This is Grass signing out, peace.

 

Astronaut Neil Armstrong, who uttered one of history’s most famous proclamations when he became the first man to walk on the moon in 1969, died Saturday.

Oops, seesm I completely forgot about this blog

I come back to WordPress a week later and find out they’ve updated their site again…only to be 50 times more laggy on my computer. Gee, thanks, just what I need, a way to burn even more processing power than I previously had to. And I apologize for this blog being so out of whack-recently. I actually completely forgot I had a blog on wordpress, and now you know why. It’s like wrestling a croc every time I get on here, and I’m on a fucking Win7. So there you have it, site’s update so users can’t use them, I suppose it’s to be expected of a declining world. Anyway, I’m not gonna chew the fat or even make a page long news post on anything major so you guys can enjoy this instead.

This is a tumblr blog I subscribe to that showcases ignorance inside the brony community. The same idiots who preach love and tolerance, but refuse to accept that which they preach. In other words, hypocrites. This specific post is about the whole love and tolerance issue as a whole. Should be a good read for you guys.

And since I never post Japan shit anymore…

 

 

Skype Schoolgirl Cyber-Rape Teacher Busted

Author: Artefact

 

A man has been arrested for “forcing” schoolgirls to undress for him using only Skype and his hentai teacher powers, in a case which has incited more than a little curiosity as to his exact modus operandi.

The 27-year-old man taught at a Kyoto high school, but unusually chose to eschew the relatively safe option of whoring or molesting amongst his own students for the less than anonymous vistas of the Internet.

He discovered he could use Skype to threaten and coerce schoolgirls from all over the nation into performing lewd acts for him, but an 17-year-old Okayama prefecture schoolgirl was the undoing of his virtual harem of the unwilling and the authorities closed in.

Police evidently took a dim view of him trying his luck outside his school, and he eventually found himself charged with both with criminal coercion and manufacturing child pornography.

Police also found evidence of him victimising a number of other girls on his computer, but have so far not been able to identify any of them.

In the hopes of persuading victims to come forward (assuming they are indeed all such), they have released his handle (“Saotomeriku”) – although given the record of Japanese police in these matters, other victims could be forgiven for not wanting to come forward lest they end up being arrested on child pornography charges themselves, or worse.

The creepy denizens of 2ch are more interested in just how he managed to “coerce” random schoolgirls into undressing for him:

“Another teacher!”

“I don’t understand how you can ‘threaten’ people using only Skype?”

“Those girls must have been a bit dim to succumb to him demanding they undress over Skype…”

“He must be pretty persuasive to get all those girls to undress using only Skype.”

“You can imagine him telling them he was a super-hacker and would leak all their personal info online if they didn’t obey. Just looking up their IP or whatever and telling them what prefecture they are in might work if they didn7t have a clue how these things work.”

“You can guess what the cops have in mind for anyone who comes forward.”

“What happened to the pics!”

“Why are all these perverts always teachers?”

“More of these hentai teachers! The cancer of Japan.”

“I managed to get a girl I met in an MMO to stream her onanism for me so it’s certainly possible.”

“I can’t see what could possibly motivate those other girls to come forward under the circumstances.”

“If his other victims come forward it will turn out they were all in their thirties…”

 

I’ll see you guys on the flipside.
