"The Daily Nonsense report” showing on http://BruceDowns.Diaryland.com is just what the name implies, just nonsense. I update this nonsense everyday with links to a wide variety of weird, funny, strange, and just plain entertaining sites that the Internet, so frequently, provides us. On occasion I may feature links that doesn’t necessarily meet the previously mention criteria but are my personal thoughts and observations. I do put witty taglines on this nonsense and mail them to your mother on occasion, especially when you have been bad. So have fun, make comments, and come back often.

High school bans book on censorship.

High school bans book on censorship. The book that started the flap, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, is a novel about censorship. Author and filmmaker Dai Sijie wrote the story about two youths who find a suitcase filled with banned books during the Cultural Revolution in China. My fist take on this is the title, which sounds like a porn film. Second take, what kind of teenage kid goes to his mom to complain about being exposed to too much sex? Maybe the kind that thought his was a loon and would completely off the deep end over it. He probably thought it was hilarious watching her flip out.

Peter: “When you come in on Monday and you're not feeling real well does anyone ever say to you ‘sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays’?”

Laurence: “Shit no man, I believe you'd get your ass kicked saying something like that, man.”

Harder to guess accurately than I thought!
Could I see some ID? This is almost as addictive as Hot or Not. After spending some time on this site it made me wonder just how old some of you are. So, lets play a little game. My challenge to you is to guess the age of the following people that leave comments often: [based only on the comments that they leave]
Bruce (me)

Of course for this experiment to work the people that are on the list would need to leave their age at the end of the day.
