It's nice to see that progress is finally being made by the US government to end the brutality against its prisoners, no matter where they are being held.

It does say anywhere in North America though, but oh well. I figured this thing was fake.

Disabling Task Manager

Does anyone know if there is a way to prevent the Task Manager from being opened in Windows 2000? Or is there a way to hide a process from the task manager?

It's true though, these people are getting way too violent. They're almost as bad as abortion extremists, maybe worse. Last year when they came here to protect the seal hunt, they somehow got one of the seal hunters personal information and posted it all on a website. His full name, address, his wif...

Don Adams was awesome. I grew up watching Get Smart and Inspector Gadget. What bad timing too, since they're in the process of making a new Get Smart movie with that guy from The 40 Year Old Virgin. I'm sure if he was still alive Don would have at least made a cameo in the movie.

The darwin award should go to a kid that got killed in the Adelaide Zoo. Prophet should know this story. The idiot tried to break into the zoo so he could steal an ice cream from a vending machine or a freezer or something (details a bit shady). While climbing over the fence he impaled himself on i...

Wait... So the kid's parents are immoral, they just say screw the kid? It's not the kid's fault her parents are living in sin. The school shouldn't expel the kid -- they should put her on the fast track, lest the parents' gayness rub off on her. That's probably exactly what they are afraid of. Her ...

Re: Vatican bans gays

If they do this, then wouldn't like 90% of priests be kicked out of the clergy? Hate to say it but how many guys would get a job vowing they can't be married/have sex? And yes, I'm implying that the majority of the priesthood is indeed gay, even though I have nothing against gays personally.

It colud barely handle DOOM if i'm not mistaken Doom on SNES was probably just as good as the 32X doom. In fact the 32X doom was very poorly made. They basically took half of Doom 1 and stuck in on a cart and called it a game. If im not mistaken it ends without any type of ending on about episode 2...

Paypal is good for the buyer but bad for the seller.

I've paid with Paypal many times and haven't had a problem yet. The best thing to do ...

I agree. It's no secret that the US government doesn't care about the UN at all. Looks like they're trying to get their citizens to do the same.

No offense, but I don't consider Fox News to be a very reliable news source. Better than CNN, but not by much. :lol:
