Dick of the Day

Facebook Co-Founder Eduardo Saverin.

Eduardo Saverin, one of the founders of Facebook, officially defriended the United States in September, giving up his American citizenship for the more tax-friendly residency status of Singapore.

Mr. Saverin, who was born in Brazil and has lived in Singapore since 2010, plans to remain in the Asian island nation indefinitely. Singapore has a maximum personal income tax rate of 20 percent and no taxes on capital gains. He gained American citizenship in 1998.

Well, Mr. Saverin, it's a good thing that you didn't need the US to be successful. It's a good thing that you didn't need the United States' intellectual property laws, or the US court system that enforces them. Good thing that you didn't need the United States military to develop the internet. Good thing you don't need the public airwaves of the US to make wireless internet access feasible. Yeah, there's certainly no reason why you should have to pay anything back in taxes. Clearly you made it all on your own.Why don't you go live in fucking Galt's Gulch with all the other dickwads who don't owe anything to society.

Yeah, I'm going with "dick."

Eduardo Saverin, you are the dick of the day.

A One-Minute Movie Review

Today we rented the Hangover Part II from Redbox.

I have had actual hangovers funnier than this movie.
And less painful.
Honestly, 90 minutes of me saying "do we have any Alka-Seltzer?" and "Uuuuuuugh. . ." might make a better movie than the Hangover Part II.

The first "Hangover " wasn't bad.
