In the Twilight of the Real 3 (a continuing series)

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman has suggested that those who deface freeways with graffiti should have their thumbs cut off on television. (via the Defeatists!)

A new book on how to raise your daughters (via Pandagon)

And pirates attack a cruise ship.

UPDATE: the cruise ship fought off the pirates with high tech sonic blasts
The liner used a sonic blaster to foil the pirates. Developed by American forces to deter small boats from attacking warships, the non-lethal weapon sends out high-powered air vibrations that blow assailants off their feet. The equipment, about the size of a satellite dish, is rigged to the side of the ship.
