On the world’s wide(st) web, these are the things that I have found in the past week that are worth a sentence or two…
- Liberalism != happiness, and here’s why.
- Statistics show that “Islamophobia” is really “Jew-o-phobia,”. Looks like we are more like many of the Arabic Muslims than we pretend, since Jews are our main target… (Unless of course, people who are targeted for crime are anonymous to the criminals, in which case all of these statistics are plain stupid.)
- The fact that students are protesting in the streets in the UK over school fees speaks to me of the truth that this generation in the Western World is one that believes in nothing stronger than it’s own entitlement. “We don’t want to pay for school! We deserve it for free, no matter the actual cost to society!” Sounds like one of the more pervasive and dangerous themes of today…
- Fine, YOU fix the budget. (Hint: if you are a libertarian, you will end up with a vast surplus…) Still not convinced our spending habits are insolvent?
- Tomorrow we hear aliens exist. But they are probably just little critters. Please God, let it be something more, like something from the SciFi channel…
- “Racism” gets you money if you are the right shade of skin and in the right profession.
- Here is a small legal analysis of the TSA and their 4th Amendment circumvention. Personally, I think it revolves more around consent to search, but this seems just as valid… Ron Paul wants a boycott, but we will probably assent to the new policies just because of the credence we give our overlords these days… Of course, if it was Republicans in power, the media would be all over the TSA’s gropings and scannings. Partisanship drives politics, to the point that those in usual defense of civil liberties will not speak up unless their party makes it an issue. Sad… But don’t you dare speak up, else you will be labeled a “domestic extremist”.
- Science by faith, on drugs. Science and faith are to compliment each other, not cross each other out…
- Hitch debates Blair on the good religion does in the world. Cancer victim wins, but probably not for pity.
- If you are Catholic, I hope these are not the only answers you can give to common objections to your faith.
- Cracked has the best articles sometimes. Informative, yet funny.

I love kung fu. And Bruce Lee would have been 70 last week. He was the only person for which the film had to be slowed down instead of sped up during fight scenes so you could actually see what he was doing.:
Tosh.0. This one is for the feminists:
Non-Euclidean level design is something I hope all future FPS games use:
This level of dis-education in our populous is just sad:
