What Could Have Entered the Public Domain on January 1, 2012?

Had Copywrite law not been changed in 1978, works from 1955 would have entered the Public Domain. Given the rip and repost culture we have now, I wonder how these laws will hold up, even with...

Re: Merry Christmas: All-American Muslim Santa Kills Family

Oh you poor thing, you are missing out, and your poor friends, they must really fret when you are a dinner guest.

It's odd to think that the chili isn't native to India but an import, and one...

Re: Merry Christmas: All-American Muslim Santa Kills Family

I think your post alone says more than enough about your twisted mindset. I would suggest trying to fix that in 2012.

Re: Merry Christmas: All-American Muslim Santa Kills Family

Indian food is far more varied than one might realize. The spicy dishes seen in restaurants are often replaced by far more gentle dishes such as dahl.

Re: "These people are terrorists"

But they still have doors keys to homes in Jaffa and Hebron not Damascus. By your logic they don't even have a claim to Ramallah.

Re: "These people are terrorists"

I've met Italians they exist, but I don't think I've ever met a Roman. Reinventing them would be fun though, I'm imagining Westworld but in Latin.



Why shouldn't they?
