For those not in the know, this is Jack Thompson.
He has spent the last several years of his life on a crusade against the greatest evil society has ever faced. The dreaded computer game! *Boo, hiss!*
However in his mad quest to ban this obvious horror (worse than terrorism y'know) he may have crossed the line several times. Several hundred times. Err, you get the point. In short he's been lying left, right, and centre, and using the death of every child or teenager to further his agenda. That finally came to a head when he started sending child and gay porn to judges to somehow improve his baseless claims. Smart thinking it isn't.
The full details can be seen on the Game Politics site.
I know I should be laughing that he has finally had to come to terms with what he has done, but really it is quite sad. He has been destroyed by his own failings and ego. So maybe not hillarious, but it's ironic that in his crusade to "Save the children!" by banning computer games that are already illegal for children to buy, he's done more harm than the computer game companies would ever have done through distributing child porn himself.
The man is completely insane and clouded by his misguided convictions. Whenever there is a national horror like a school shooting he blames computer games, even when there is no evidence to support his claims and even proof to the contrary.
He wants to instill moral values into society? What ones, his own? That it's good and proper to lie, cheat, perjure, send offensive correspondance to people, spread slander, disrupt the legal process, attempt to undermine the Constitution, and ghoulishly try to turn the death of innocent people into some kind of pissing contest?
If Jack Thompson should be remembered for anything it is that we should use him as an example on how NOT to live your life. He's harmed more people than Grand Theft Auto ever has.

Basicy, a couple are having domestic issues over which rival gang their child should join when he's older. Shouldn't they, I don't know, be trying to give the kid a better chance in life than joining a street gang? Just saying...
As time goes on I get more and more convinced that potential parents should pass an aptitude test before breeding...

Robert Jordan, real name James Oliver Rigney, Jr, has passed away as a result of his long term illness.
For those who don't know him he wrote many of the Conan novels, but he is more famously known for his Wheel of Time series.
Personally, I feel the Wheel of Time series are some of the best books I have been fortunate enough to read.
Rest in peace.

Alan Johnston Released
BBC's Gaza correspondent released
BBC correspondent Alan Johnston has been freed by his captors in Gaza after his abduction nearly four months ago.
Television pictures showed Mr Johnston, 45, leaving a building and entering a white car, accompanied by armed men. He said he was tired but in good health.
During his time as a hostage, three videos were released featuring images of Mr Johnston or of his belongings.
Calls were made for his release in rallies worldwide and in an online petition signed by some 200,000 people.
The journalist was handed over to officials of the Hamas administration.
Gunmen from the Palestinian Islamist Hamas movement overran Gaza last month, expelling their rivals from the Fatah faction.
Hamas' military wing had said it would spare no effort to secure the BBC reporter's release.
A previously little-known militant group, the Army of Islam, claimed it was holding Mr Johnston and had released videos demanding the release of Muslim prisoners in British custody.
The group had said it would kill its captive if its demands were not met.
I am utterly surprised! Thankfully so, this is great news. I seriously thought he had been killed when he was first kidnapped.
But I'm left asking what exactly was gained from his capture? And why release right now? Is it because HAMAS has secured itself in Gaza after the coup, or did our new leaders in the UK manage to pull something off?
Either way I've got a great deal of respect for the man. It takes a hell of a lot of courage to be a correspondent in a place like that and risking all that he has. The man deserves a pay rise.

Please tell me the social services are coming...
A mother forcing her child to look like the inside of a mango for 'her own good'.
I'd like to know how this can be considered a good upbringing for a kid? Forcing them to carry out your own failed dreams of being Miss Universe is not my idea of good parenting. But then again, what do I know...
The greatest mix of humour/depression is the ticker tape along the bottom of the screen. The mother persuades her "You wanna be just like Lindsey Lohan, right?"
And at the same time in the ticker tape "Lindsey Lohan arrested on cocaine charges."
*Thumbs up* Well done.
