Wasn't sure where this might fit in on the discussion boards, so I thought I'd do this as a blog post. If anyone has any ideas where it could go, don't hesitate to let me know.
For our Canadian friends and anyone interested in international politics: Canadian New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton died early this morning at his home in Toronto, aged 61, of cancer. Here's the story from the CBC web site:…Continue
I hate it, but from the way things are in the world right now, I am officially removing my name from this account. People are being fired for all sorts of nonsense reasons, and I think it is time I got OUT of the game.
My account will still be here, my image will not change, but the name will be removed. For those of you who know my name, please do not use it in response to me here. The fewer Google an Yahoo hits the better.
I will still be an open atheist, but my…
The unemployment rate for 16-23 year olds is the highest it's been in a generation in the UK, with record numbers of university graduates and school levers going straight on the doll. Even though this feels like a fairly recent news story, caused by raised tuition fees and extensive cuts implamented or planned by the fairly new coalition government, it really has been a growing problem for many years now. I graduated university in the year 2009, which, at the time, was considered the worst…Continue

Can anyone explain what this means?
Here's a comedy bit I wrote up. Enjoy.
I was trying to come up with a topic to write about tonight. I was making some bread (yes, I make my own bread) when it hit me: Jesus would suck as a president. Here are the reasons.
10. Jesus surrounds himself with punks. Have you read the New Testament? The apostles can barely get out of their own way. Who hired Judas?…Continue
Talk radio is one of the most predictable things out there - same well-paid shills mouthing the same old talking points day after day with the same results. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's enough to make any sane person almost want to do something drastic with their radios.
If you're looking for a program that's NOT the same predictable, set-your-clock-by-it sayings and routines - tune in to ShockNet Radio (…Continue

This may be less than timely, but whatever.
How many times does Texas Gov. Perry have to be snubbed by "the Lord" before he gets it?
April 2011, Texas is starting to suffer widespread drought for which there is no impending meteorological relief. Rick Perry organizes a "prayer" holiday for rain and the drought gets worse, continuing to this very day. Any good witch doctor knows you need to see the clouds building in the west before you schedule the rain dance.…Continue
Scientists have undone the progress made by evolution by altering chicken DNA to create embryos with alligator-like snouts instead of beaks.

On summer vacation
It is somewhat early in the morning, I am sitting on the porch of our small summer house in northern Evia, able to gaze at the sea from a distance. Our guests are all still asleep and so is my wife. Only my two boys Odysseas and Iasonas are already up and playing nearby, as I am having my first morning coffee and reading the final chapter of “God Is Not Great” by Christopher Hitchens.
I pause my reading to take a glance at the boys,…

Riddle me this:
I stand before a counter with several types of food on it. I am hungry but I am currently not eating. Thermodynamics dictates that I will continue not eating until acted on by a force or forces. How do I generate the energy to choose a specific item and eat it?
I'll give you a hint: it's a trick question.
