Austria's Turkish community calling the LEGO Company raciest over Star Wars set.

Austria's Turkish community is calling Jabba the Hut a "terrorist", not just because of the way he and his monastery supposedly "depicts racial prejudice and vulgar insinuations against Asians and Orientals as people with criminal personalities", but because a LEGO set look too much like Istanbul's Hagia Sophia mosque, and is demanding an apology from the LEGO company.. I can sort of understand the movie scenes being raciest (not really at all), but this is just a laugh. Whatever, you decide.

Boston Marathon Scams

We are all shaken by the most recent tragedy of the Boston Marathon bombing. It is always good to make online donations to help the families of those that have sufferd, and help fund the search of who is responsible, however many of the 100+ websites that have appeard since the attack are scam sites trying to take your money. Do your research before makeing any kind of donations to these sites, and if you can't find any reputable information about them, then Alt-F4, (meaning get the hell out before they take your money!)
