On Security

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Benjamin Franklin

"Never has our ability to shield our affairs from prying eyes been at such a low ebb. The availability and use of secure encryption may offer an opportunity to reclaim some portion of the privacy we have lost. Government efforts to control encryption thus may well implicate not only the First Amendment rights of cryptographers intent on pushing the boundaries of their science, but also the constitutional rights of each of us as potential recipients of encryption's bounty."
US Appeals Court Judge Betty Fletcher

"The VCR is to the American film producer and the American public as the Boston Strangler is to the woman alone."
Jack Valenti, MPAA

"If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking is freedom."
Dwight Eisenhower

"A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere."
Groucho Marx

"WHO CARES ONE WAY OR ANOTHER IF THE GOVERNMENT SHOT MARTIN LUTHER KING? THE POINT IS I'M HUNGRY."
Spigot, Jerkcity

"I'm a bad motherfucker
don't you know
And I'll crawl over fifty good pussies
just to get one fat boy's asshole"
Stagger Lee, Nick Cave


Accolades


"Love the site guys, Daily Rotten is my homepage, I always check this for my news first. I also have to say that I've been enjoying rotten.com for years, and it has prepared me well for what I see as a paramedic. Thanks a ton, and keep up the great (but morbid) work!"

"I like your news page. I can now pretend to be hitting this site for the information and not to rubberneck at other people's gruesome misfortunes. Just like my husband reads Playboy for the articles."

"God, Liberals can't even keep their sorry-assed bias out Rotten.Com? I was hoping to find a truly unbiased source for... god ... anything! Liberal filth has even found its way even here..."

"I like the new News format and the slow emergence of an actual conservative viewpoint however twisted....the good intentions of liberalism have enslaved millions but have now outright killed thousands."

"I used to read slashdot, but you guys are much more entertaining. Plus I get the bonus of ya'all not being 'linux fags'. Keep it up."

"You are doing an excellent job. I work at a news agency in Greece, and when looking for international news, we often look for stories in your site. I must admit I only used to come here to see pieces of dead people or animals and people fucking, but the news section is an excellent hub for weird and disturbing information."

"The difficulty in determining what are legitimate Internet news sites and which online publishers do not have sufficiently high journalistic standards to qualify will doom ICRA, civil libertarians predict. After all, even rotten.com now features a news section, though the headlines do tend to run along the lines of Postal worker jailed for flinging feces. -- Wired

"Anyone who wanted to join Yadav's ring had to prove himself by having group sex with Yadav -- sometimes with other men, women or both -- all while Yadav videotaped the scene... Though the sex satisfied Yadav's own perversions, he used the unusual initiations to weed out people he thought might belong to law enforcement, according to Athens-Clarke police Detective Beverly Russell, who helped break the cloning ring."

Jewish Newspaper Floats Trial Balloon
Guardian | Submitted by: anonymous
The owner of a Jewish newspaper in Atlanta has said he deeply regrets writing a column suggesting that Israel consider "a hit" on Barack Obama if he stands in the way of the Jewish state defending itself. Andrew Adler told the Guardian he wrote the column in the weekly Atlanta Jewish Times "to get a reaction" from the paper's readers. "The reactions indicate that the Americans probably wouldn't let Israel get away with this. That's what I wanted to see," he said. "I feel really disappointed about that."

Uighur Organ Harvest Season
Weekly Standard | Submitted by: Bort
"By the end of 1999, the Uighur crackdown would be eclipsed by Chinese security’s largest-scale action since Mao: the elimination of Falun Gong. By my estimate up to three million Falun Gong practitioners would pass through the Chinese corrections system. Approximately 65,000 would be harvested, hearts still beating, before the 2008 Olympics. An unspecified, significantly smaller, number of House Christians and Tibetans likely met the same fate."

Magic Bullets
The Economist | Submitted by: rf
"The XM25, as the new gun is known, weighs about 13lb and fires a 25mm round. The trick is that instead of having to be aimed directly at the target, this round need only be aimed at a place in proximity to it. Once there, it explodes -- just like Shrapnel’s original artillery shells -- and the fragments kill the enemy. It knows when to explode because of a timed fuse. In Shrapnel’s shells this fuse was made of gunpowder. In the XM25 it is a small computer inside the bullet that monitors details of the projectile’s flight."

"The breaking waveforms of Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds are the result of shearing winds up at cloud level. A particular type of turbulence can develop in a layer of cirrus cloud, which happens to form below an inversion between air currents of differing speeds and/or directions. Sea waves break as their bases are slowed down upon reaching shallow water and their crests surge ahead. Cloud waves break in the same way: when their crests are pushed ahead of their troughs by the difference in air currents."
