The World's Shortest Fairy Tale - Wish it was mine!!!

World's Shortest Fairy Tale:

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl "Will you marry me?"

The girl said "No."

And the guy lived happily ever after and went golfing a lot.

From an anonymous Craigslist Poster...

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -

Know that you aren't alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

China - The land of some seriously smart people (or government officials)

[Click on title to visit external website]

Mirrored at

The way this works out is this. You are the Chinese government. The following are some of your objectives:

1. How do we assert our tyranny and absolute lack of respect for any democratic form of existance?

2. How do we assert being the unwarranted cynosure for capitalist companies?

3. How do we abuse this unique position rendered to us by stupid companies?

4. How do we help our legal system, our cyber-squatters, and in general anyone who will benefit, grab money from these companies?

The answer: The New Law. While one country goes around abusing the internet with stupid laws that disallow you from "annoying people anonymously", another is being very smart.

Now you own a company called cBay. You become very famous in the US. The erstwhile Wall Street Journal publishes a snippet that you might be eyeing China, the next big market (always the next, for the last guzillion years). And then, lo and behold, some dude in Shangai registers your domain .

Across the ocean, somewhere in Europe, say, someone does the same thing with .uk

You hire the UK government and its laws, if necessary the EU and its laws to beat the crap out of this guy and wrestle the domain from him, and maybe, also get him to pay the legal charges for the whole tussle.

Roll back to China. You sue this guy using China's ridiculous if nothing else, legal system. You fight for two years. Who ends up the loser?

If only the Indian government were 10% as smart as the Chinese government.

But given how the Indian Judiciary system delivers rapidfire justice.....

No one supports this guy?

I, as a blogger do!!!! Where would real life entertainment go, if we didn't encourage people like him to abuse abusive laws as a result of their natural stupidity?

Or maybe I am being insensitive. Maybe the ear injury did affect his pea brain....
