Friday Hit List

1) Much Needed Patent Reform Act. Currently in-process in Congress. Looks like a much more civil discussion then the equally-necessary copyright reform.

2) HILARIOUS op-ed on recent financial troubles in the lending markets. Don't lend money to people who can't pay it back? What a concept. The best quote of the piece:

But as I say, it was my fault, for not studying the poor more closely before I lent them the money. When the only time you've ever seen a lion is in his cage in the zoo, you start thinking of him as a pet cat. You forget that he wants to eat you.

3) Katana Sword vs. 9mm. The world would be such a crappy place without Japanese television.

4) Enable Insults in Ubuntu Command Line. Make typo, suffer the consequences.
