Ever wondered if Iron Man could get a DUI, zombies are legally responsible for the people they kill or the Ghost Busters could be accused of falsely imprisoning ghosts? Then you’ll love this great Oddee article answering all the questions you might have about fictional legal issues, as explored by real lawyers.
I can’t tell if this is a joke or not -either way, awesome.
*This post was on Neatorama until people complained enough to have it pulled. I’d like to point out that when you let violent jackasses destroy the legacy of something that everyone otherwise loved, you’re letting them win. This idiot doesn’t deserve to be remembered. The victims do, and the victims were fans of the movie don’t forget them and don’t claim to honor them by doing the exact opposite of what they were doing.

They’re so funny because they’re just so wrong.
You’ve no doubt seen videos or photos of students at UC Davis being peppersprayed by a douchebag cop (hell, there’s even a meme of it already), but you might not know that anonymous has decided to take action against him. Here’s a fraction of their message against him:
Citizens of the world, flood his home phone at 530-752-3989.
Flood his cell phone at 530-979-0184.
Flood his email at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Flood his home with pizza deliveries and junk mail at 4005 Cowell Boulevard. Apartment #616. Davis, California 95618.
Flood his skype at japike3.
Flood his phones, email and mailbox to voice your anger.
Flood the campus of U.C. Davis.
Flood the streets of the world and stand up for your rights, and against injustice.
Whether or not you agree with Occupy, you should be able to agree that no one should be peppersprayed simply for peacefully protesting.
You already know that masturbation is a bit taboo in today’s society. As it turns out though, the fear of masturbation has actually changed the world itself in many an important manner.
The hypocrisy would be hilarious if it weren’t so damn depressing.
The 53% supporters seem to think they they are a noble movement here to put an end to those whiny, lazy 99%ers, but the thing is, they were here during past movements and their voices were just as idiotic then.
I spend fourteen hours a days willowing ostrich feathers so that rich women can wear attractive hats. Because they want to wear these hats, I am able to HAVE A JOB. I used to make 15 cents an hour, but now there are so many young girls in the business that I only make seven or eight cents. The boss tells us that we will soon be paid only five cents.
BUT I DO NOT COMPLAIN, because I am determined to WORK HARD FOR EVERYTHING I HAVE.
Also, my boss will fire or rape me if I complain.

Don’t think for a second that the only creatures affected by the greed of the 1% are humans. These dogs occupying Wall Street have also been victimized by corporate greed.
