A River in Egypt

If you look in the Nile today you might find a moses basket bobbing gently along, unheeded by the wider and wiser populace. Don’t worry. It isn’t an abandoned baby in danger of being eaten by crocodiles. It is today’s newspaper reviews courtesy of the BBC.** Given that this is the British press, you won’t be surprised to hear that there is bullshit among the bullrushes. Any croc foolish enough to take a bite out of this crock would not enjoy the taste. Most of the papers feature Theresa May looking even more ashen faced and Palpatine like than normal but lets see who is really in denial…

The Sunday Game

Here is a fun game that you can play on a Sunday. (Actually, you can play it on any day of the week and it is more depressing than fun.) As I was saying, here is a game you can play blah blah whatever:

The Rule of Law

Something very bad is going on in both the UK and the USA. It is something that cuts off the legitimacy of the state at the knees. It is the first step on the road to Hell and it is this:

Some people are openly agitating that certain bodies of the state should be effectively above the law and immune to prosecution. In the USA it is the police. In the UK it is the army. In other countries the police, military, royalty and even politicians and civil servants already have a substantial degree of official or unofficial immunity.

I shouldn’t have to explain why this is wrong but I will.

Video

I have added a new links section for Video content on the right hand side. It basically consists of the YouTube channels I watch when there is nothing good on TV.

Stop Saying “Uncertainty”, You Bellends!

“Blah blah uncertainty blah. Uncertainty blah blah. Blah blah uncertainty bibble.”
– Pretty much all of the bellends, pretty much all of the time.

Just shut up all of you! Please stop saying “uncertainty” as if it explains the current UK financial and political crisis.

Rejoice

Monday was a good day. Not only did my Mum finally find a new house, after being gazumped on another one. Not only did Cher not die. Not only did the internet melt in confusion about Cher not dying. Not only did the sun shine for a bit before the weather went back to being crap. The greatest improvement in UK air quality since the 1956 Clean Air Act occurred; Margaret Thatcher stopped breathing.

Now I am aware that I am late with my comments and all the Ding Donging and Rejoicing has already been done. I apologise for this. The house purchase took priority. I guess this is called growing up. Despite being late, I do have a few things to say. (more…)

National Bee Shortage?

There was yet another news report about there being a shortage of bees yesterday. This has been going on for more than a year now and even became a recurring theme in the previous series of Doctor Who.

The weird thing is that there seem to be just as many bees as ever around here. (more…)

Social Networks and Land Grabs

I just got talked into registering a Gmail account by some friends (a different bunch to the ones on Facebook). That’s not so bad. I had been meaning to investigate Google Docs anyway. The problem is that they want to use Google Buzz for chat and microblogging and all that modern nonsense. Oh noes! Its like Facebook all over again!

Oh noes. I has a Facebook!

Remember only a few days ago how I was saying how I was avoiding Facebook and running down its denizens? Well now I am one.

Some University friends persuaded me to join and I am sort of glad I did because now I can see exactly how identities get stolen. (more…)
