Holy WTF

The eminent biologist told the British newspaper he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours — whereas all the testing says not really.”

Of course, this from one half of the duo who are alleged to have stolen from Rosalind Franklin to make their discovery of the double helix…

I say old boy.. Do you have a spare noose?

UPDATE: I also find it ironic the cnn page that displays the story…

Someone at CNN was having some fun.

Death Cab guitarist: Border agents took my record

SEATTLE, Washington (AP) — The guitarist for indie pop rockers Death Cab for Cutie still expects to release his solo album in January even though federal border agents seized a computer hard drive containing the master tracks.

A courier was headed to Seattle-based Barsuk Records from a studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, when U.S. Border Patrol agents seized the hard drive September 19, Chris Walla said Wednesday.

“I don’t know what red flag could possibly have gone up at the border,” Walla said in a phone interview from Portland, Oregon. “It’s so baffling to me.”

Walla said he had been in British Columbia working on the album called “Field Manual.” Barsuk needed the music to meet its production schedule, and a Hipposonic Studios employee volunteered to drive the mixed songs, on tape, and the original master tracks, on a computer hard drive.

Guards at the Peace Arch border crossing in Blaine let the courier keep the tapes but seized the hard drive for examination by computer forensics experts, according to Walla and Hipposonic President Rob Darch.

Mike Milne, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said late Wednesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement forensics experts had examined it and decided it could be released.

“We have attempted to make two notifications to the importer to pick it up, that it’s free to go, but we haven’t heard back from him,” Milne said, adding it appeared those were phone messages left between September 19 and October 1.

Walla said he believed the confiscation was random.

Walla had the seized files on a backup hard drive on Vancouver Island, which was copied and shipped to Seattle. The lost time prevented Walla from finishing the album on time, but it’s still expected to be released January 29, said Josh Rosenfeld, the label’s co-founder.

Holy WTF, are you kidding me? The border patrol really felt that there were “Exigent Circumstances” to take this laptop and run a forensic analysis on it? The very same people who brought to you CAPPSII and other fucktard systems that make us undress at every airport?

Hmmm was it the name “Death Cab For Cutie”???? I bet it was.. I wonder if ICE and DHS got all upset at the “Terroristic” name for the band. Hell, you know how dangerous those Canadians are man too! Yeah Al Qaida is actually Al-Canada…

Or maybe… Just maybe…RIAA has infiltrated the Border patrol? Hmmmmmmm

Tards.
