NSA spying through Angry Birds »

Most of America seemed to just disregard months of information about the Edward Snowden leaks.. Spying? eh.. surveillance? whattava.. Listening through my phone? Figured.
But..
SPYING ON MY THROUGH ANGRY BIRDS!? What the hell, yo!
It’s true!
According to some earth shattering information being revealed now, Edward Snowden’s leaked documents show that the NSA is spying on people through the popular game ANGRY BIRDS. 
Damage control now:
Angry Birds maker Rovio said it had no knowledge of any NSA or GCHQ programs or mechanisms for tapping into its users’ data.
"Rovio doesn’t have any previous knowledge of this matter, and have not been aware of such activity in 3rd party advertising networks," said Saara Bergstrom, Rovio’s VP of marketing and communications. "Nor do we have any involvement with the organizations you mentioned [NSA and GCHQ]."
But the damage is already done. The Black Bomb Bird already struck. But will you delete? Or just keep playing until you finish the game?

Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
