Seems Monster Cable is letting the Monster Mini Golf off “easy” with a settlement - Monster Mini Golf can continue to use “Monster” as long as they pay Monster Cable $100 a month. Monster Cable will then in turn donate the money to a charity. The details are up on the site http://monsterminigolftruth.com/

Be sure to scroll down about a few pages to enjoy the founder of Monster Cable trying to justify their legal target practice.

Hey Buzz Crew,
Just wanted to comment on yesterday’s story on Online Voting in
Estonia. We have a limited version of this in Municipal Elections
this past October. You got a card with a code on it, had to
authenticate using your Birthday and where allowed to vote. However,
there where two problems with this. First, Online voting was only
allowed on days of Advance Polls, which fell on the two Saturday’s
before the election. Secondly, apparently they sent out cards to
people who had been deceased, and some people received more than one
card. So it’s not without it’s glitches. Now, if we could just move
Online voting to the Provincial and Federal levels.
Love the Show,
Nathaniel, the IT Student

The sex vs. the Internet seems a little silly because for many guys their sex life is the Internet.
