Han Solo may have been an atheist in a foxhole, but Sam Vimes is an atheist in a world full of literal Gods.

I think Pratchett uses Vimes, Vetinari, and a few other characters to violate framings determined by the lure of Narrative Causality. In this role, they're cast, from one book to the next, as simple pragmatists, regicides, god-killers, anti-fatalists, Death-cheaters, anti-magicians -- always outside of, and thus able to manage the 'story,' and its 'characters' (including gods, manifested in response to belief).

Variations on this same theme are found in many contemporary fantasy novels, e.g., Max Gladstone's Craft Series, Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid series, etc. All these novels propose worlds in which gods are real, but where sane, empowered, functional people interact with them in non-worshipful or opponent modes.

Sounds about right, from what I remember...
 
Transport for London has made a chart to help commuters gauge how unpleasant their tube journey home will be today.

Counting my blessings I'm sweltering in the countryside.

I was a week in London, the heatwave summer of 2007. 45C (113F) on the Tube. Everybody was simply drinking water continuously to keep up with the sweat rate.

I went to a talk about kink yesterday, and the speaker (John Pendal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZhgmTh7rao ) put up this list of life skills that kink practitioners learn.

I had to take a picture to share :D

Wait.... What?

The head of Cleveland’s largest police union has just called on Ohio Gov. John Kasich to temporarily restrict the state’s open carry gun laws and the Second Amendment during this week’s Republican National Convention. This call comes as members of various Black “Open Carry” and self-defense organizations began arriving in the city. When various “gun rights” groups, with predominantly pro-Republican …

The pleadings of the police union chief were reported by several sources.

IMHO the most likely outcomes are:
1) nobody gets shot
2) 2A folks cite this for years as evidence of open carry keeping the peace
3) one of:
3a) the police union's chief resigns in disgrace for losing their cool, or
3b) he keeps his job and his statement falls down the memory hole, and within a year it's claimed to be a liberal fabrication
4) police unions remain the one union Republicans aren't looking to bust.

I really hate the #AllLivesMatter hashtag that goes around after these events. It's well meaning, but it's black people that are being singled out for excessive brutality and murder, not all people. Keep it focused on those who are being unjustly treated. #BlackLivesMatter

Introduction
About Me

+Scredible Brand Evangelist

I'm a writer, I dabble in photography, cooking, and playing guitar. I usually run IT departments as either manager or head of tech. I like doing it because it's cranial work.

I'm a happy man. I'll not say I'm well balanced (even though I am, sort of)... I'd rather say I'm acceptably crazy.

I play Group Captain McInnes in HG World. I also play other voices around the web!

I'm harmless... Mostly ;)


:D

While all Costco's have the common theme of good quality, low prices, and great deals, this Costco had the best and friendliest service team. From the greeter to the tyre department, everyone is helpful and polite!

Steeped in literary history, this pub is a wonderful place to go when you need to be inspired as a writer. With a great selection of good and drinks, plus friendly staff, the Eagle and Child, also known as the Bird and Baby by locals, is a must visit for any buzzing authors visiting Oxford!

A wide variety of foods, both vegetarian and non, with good service and good value. Parking is a pain, but worth the effort.
