  1. A Live Map of All the F***s We Collectively Give on Twitter Is Mesmerizing

    From our data, we can extrapolate that no one in Alaska gives a f***.

    Software developer Martin Gringras has created a site called Fbomb, which tracks every time a Twitter user (Twit?) uses the F-word and puts a little icon on a map. Effectively, we can now measure who gives the most f***s. It's not exactly a battle we'd be proud to win, but we'll take what we can get.

  2. Why Is It That Legislators Think Basic Rights Don’t Apply On The Internet?

    When it comes to Internet activism and Internet discussion of law in general, you're bound to find a lot of people arguing for "freedom." Freedom to do what they want, freedom to say what they want, and freedom to be anonymous about it. Now, you might say (and many do): "That's because they're all a bunch of thieves and bullies who want to keep stealing and bullying." And to an extent, you might be right. The other reason though -- the main reason -- is that basic rights are almost constantly under attack whenever the Internet is involved. Legislators in Arizona, for instance, want to (and think they can) outlaw obscene, lewd or profane language on the Internet, punishable by a $250,000 fine and up to six months in jail.

Between things like skipping class, senior pranks, general goofing off, and skipping class, I think it's fair to say most of us got in some kind of trouble or another. It takes a lot to get expelled though; that's reserved for the real neer-do-wells, right? Apparently not at Indiana's Garrett High School, where Austin Carroll -- a senior just three months from graduation -- was expelled due to the school's overzealous tweet monitoring for tweeting the most harmless kind of profanity from his personal account.

  4. This Batman Cover Looks Like It Has A Nasty Word On It

    This is part of what is apparently a cover of one of the upcoming Bruce Wayne: The Return Home books, featuring Batman and Robin jumping off a building, away from an explosion. Also, somebody is shooting lasers at them. Well, one of them looks like it might be a freeze ray. (It's the spiraling secondary ray that gives it away.) Oh, and there are some giant letters that look like they used to spell out the f-word.
