I'm tempted to drop off a Microsoft coffee mug for Goldy. Just to see if he would be photographed using it.

commented on Senate Committee: Microsoft Avoided $6.5 Billion in Taxes Through "Aggressive International Tax Maneuvers"
@10 Aww, look an H1B in your midst. I'm over here taking your jobs and hitting on your sister. But I'm Irish, so it's OK - I am pale and white, you'll never realise unless you hear me speak.
You realise an H1B has to be paid the same as an American worker? Sure, some of the body shop factories I've seen abuse the crap out of their H1Bs, but Microsoft? Well examined, watched, randomly checked Microsoft? Nope, sorry, hate to break it to you, but I'm neither cheap or easily intimidated (your sister on the other hand ...)
(Oh and note the same committee has also called out Google and Apple for the same practices)

Ah, legitimate rape in the animal kingdom.
"Ducks are known for their bizarre penises, stretching up to 20cm in size in an anti-clockwise spiral. That's an impressive organ for a bird often only 60cm long. The females, on the other hand, have vaginas that spiral clockwise, opposite to their menfolk. Ducks also engage in what is politely termed "forced copulation", where the male ducks attempt non-consensual sex with the female, and explosively extend their penises with a technique that takes less than half a second."
