Histrionic Exhaustion
Most of what we doesn't matter "if your job wasn’t performed by a cat or a boa constrictor in a Richard Scarry book I’m not sure I believe it’s necessary"

I'm late to this party, sorry if you've already read it (you obviously have more free time than me): http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/opinionator/2012/06/30/the-busy-trap/?referrer=

We’ve looked before at how an ideological opposition to helping each other through tax actually means Americans pay more for healthcare than people in the UK - contrary to what free market...

First I've heard of this horrendous ancient policy of tacit acceptance by Oxford of sexual abuse. Apparently its a thing in freshers weeks at other universities too - how far we are from where we need to be

Just met Chuka Umunna... an impressive man. I struggle to see how he won't make an excellent Prime Minister

I think he's likely to win the leadership; but he's got a serious challenge on this hands to keep the north onside, never mind regaining Scotland.

Privately educated lawyer in an expensive suit... almost the archetype of a red-Tory - and as such, should do quite well in the blue doughnut.

I'm uncertain Labour can find a single leader who is palatable both North and South of Sheffield.

There are so many people (pretty much exclusively right wingers) who must get burnt before they admit that fire exists.

Unfortunately as far as the climate goes, that means we all get burnt:

BarbaraHudson writes: A new study (abstract) from NASA scientists predicts an Antarctic ice shelf half the size of Rhode Island will disintegrate around 2020. The shelf has existed for roughly 10,000 years. "Ice shelves are the gatekeepers for glaciers flowing from Antarctica toward the ocean. With...

It will happen. Law changes slower than tech - and about 30 million European teenagers are allowed to ride a two wheeler, but not a four wheeler.

But two wheelers are dangerous.

So allow the human less control.

The Guardian review lead to me understand why they'll sell.

Because the battery expires during the working day; there's scope for executive bragging about how important and constantly in touch they are. i.e. ostentatiously having to get their phone out because the watch is in "time only mode <shrugg> I'm just to busy for it to keep up".

Then it becomes a competition to start earlier and receive more to run it out as fast as possible.

Gadget as willy waving contest.

I was fortunate enough to get a Clark & Ravenscroft hamper for Christmas and it was lovely... so nice to have local produce too, so much better than the M&S one I had the year before. Recommended
