They aren't cute and cuddly, but pangolins are becoming rare.

"Horses don't belong in traffic, surrounded by buses. They don't belong in the city; it's outdated, it's cruel," he said, adding, "Life attached to a carriage with a poop bag attached to your rear end — that's no life."

They're right! To the dogfood factory with all of them!
Animal welfare activists picketing Liam Neeson's home on Saturday said they don't agree with him that the city's carriage horses should keep working.

Does the world need a programming language based on FORTH that is 64-bit, has data types, and object orientation?

No - it doesn't.

Which is exactly why I'm going to create one.

I am unnecessary but worthwhile
Introduction
I'm a retired IT wage slave who used to write Delphi and C++ database applications.

Now I am attempting to re-become a photographer after a 35-year hiatus. It is difficult but rewarding.

I am a voracious reader of history, Shakespeare, symbolic logic, classics, photography, and just about anything else. I have four (count 'em, 4) Kindles of various kinds. My library of physical books runs to over 1,000 volumes and has taken over my house.

I am diabetic and have Meniere's Disease - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A9ni%C3%A8re's_disease

I am an atheist with a historical interest in religion, but I must admit I am downright cynical about faith and most intolerant of those who would impose their beliefs on others.

I am politically somewhat to the left of almost everyone, but I stop short at outright communism or authoritarian socialism. I guess I am a social democrat, which is pointless, really, as I live in the U.S.A. where anything other than semi-fascist conservatism is regarded as socialism. From my perspective it appears that a large portion of the American populace is totally batshit crazy.

I have no problem with tastefully presented nudity, even though G+ is fairly intolerant of even a nipple or two. I generally block people who post X-rated material. If I want porn there's plenty to be had on the Internot without clogging G+ with it.

If you want to circle me go ahead, but be aware of the statements above if you have a problem with leftist politics, outright bashing of the right, utter contempt for Fox News, and healthy distrust of the Democratic party.

I generally circle people who circle me unless:

- You don't post a photo of yourself (this is flexible)
- You have the word "marketing" in your profile (this is not)
- You don't post publicly
- You are rude without being funny or making a good point
- You post porn

I have a blog called GraceLessLand where I commit Photoshop rapine and make fun of almost everything people hold dear and sacred:

My personal blog is at:
