So I'm playing Halo 2 online, and this one guy's named himself "B1N L4D3N". He doesn't have a mic, but this OTHER guy's trash-talking him, telling him what he's going to do to him, etc. At one point, the guy calls him a "sand Jew". WTF? He called bin Laden a "sand Jew"?!?!
Okay, now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure bin Laden WOULD take it as an insult to be called Jew, but I'm also pretty sure that's not what the guy had in mind. :P

In vaguely related news, I heard some various rumors about why Dave Chappelle suddenly disappeared, and I was trying to find out what happened to him. I googled for him, except I made a typo and only used one "P". The top Google hit for what happened to dave chapelle turned out to be from the skinhead.net forums, and they're fans! ... !
Incidentally, if you're also wondering what happened to him, Time interviewed him back in May. He says he didn't check in to a mental hospital; he just needed to take a step back from the stresses of his sudden rise to fame. Here's what really happened:
"During my ascent, I've seen other people go through that wall to become really big. They always said that fame didn't change them but that it changes the people around them. You always hear that but you never really understand it. But now that I'm there that makes a lot of sense and I'm learning what that means. You have to have people around you that you can trust and aren't just out for a meal ticket."
The breakdown in trust within his inner circle seems to have led him to question the material they were producing. He seems obsessed with making sure the material is good and honest and something that he will be proud. "I want to make sure I'm dancing and not shuffling," he says. "What ever decisions I make right now I'm going to have live with. Your soul is priceless." The first two seasons of his show "had a real spirit to them," he says. "I want to make sure whatever I do has spirit."
So he's actually taking a breather to make sure he doesn't get blinded by fame. You gotta respect that.
