To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

DIY Gifts Are the Ultimate Remedy for Black Friday
Black Friday seems to be firmly polarized between those who love the thrill of the hunt and those who view the year's biggest shopping day as selling out family, holidays, and leisure time for a few bucks less on imported goods. If you find yourself among the critics of Black Friday why not strike out against that symbol of greed and do something positive by making DIY gifts at least some of your friends and family this holiday season.

BREAKING: Skeptics equated to pedophiles — Robyn Williams ABC. Time to protest.
Hat tip to Graham Young editor of Online Opinion. “That is worse than anything Alan Jones said. ” Follow Graham Young on twitter. A bad-taste joke by Alan Jones in October created a national storm. These comments in the “science” show were supposedly considered, deliberate and researched. This morning on the “science” show Robyn Williams equates skeptics to pedophiles, people pushing asbestos, and drug pushers. Williams starts the show by framing republicans (and skeptics) as liars: “New Scientist complained about the “gross distortions” and “barefaced lying” politicians come out  with…” He’s

Happy Thanksgiving!
Today’s Thanksgiving is an American holiday. But other countries have their Thanksgivings and harvest festivals. I think there’s something we all can give thanks for: that we humans seem to be improving ourselves. Yes, I’ve been following the news of Israel and Gaza and the probably cynical calculations behind the deaths. We’re improving, and we’ve still got some way to go.But I think that Steven

Belfry tower.
Apparent inadvertent double entendre in satire of the week.
As a hardworking constituency MP, unlike some others I could mention from Planet Westminster, I can't wait to get back to my lovely people right away and share some of the amazing things I've learned on their behalf. Next time someone starts complaining to me about "food poverty", I will lead them to the nearest camel toe!
David Cameron is duly invited to the vomitorium.
All things considered, there are relatively few things I find so anathema that they make me feel physically ill.  Coming from someone who was so often throwing up at one point that I was ironically nicknamed "sick", factor in I barely feel comfortable in my own skin at most times, and this is quite the statement.  Compare me to David Cameron for instance, who finds the mere prospect of p
Neither one thing nor the other.
I realise it's a motif I've been over-dependent on recently, but such has been the scale of bullshit of late that it's been difficult not to feel like we've been mysteriously plunged into a parallel universe.  A couple of months back David Cameron appeared before the UN general assembly, and reaching for the most emotive imagery he could muster, he said the UN had been stained by the blood

Once Upon a Fiscal Cliff
Once upon a time, America’s political leaders understood that a fair, prosperous, life-giving society was one where corporate interests were trumped by the need for decent jobs, collective bargaining and community well-being. Every four years, political leaders looked at their reflections and asked, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, will the deficit crush us all?” The answer was always, “No way, dud

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Serious gaps in protection are leaving tigers exposed to poachers, a new WWF study says, but this could be reversed if more investments are made in staff, equipment, and training programs for rangers that are working to protect the scattered populations of the endangered species in the wild.
