So, a child was born today - it wasn't the second coming - just a second child. The trouble is, this system validates the revolting dogma of inherited privilege – that some are born to greatness, and I don't agree with that.

They're a bunch of over privileged pricks end of. Anyone with the time and finances could do what they do, but by accident of birth they're instead stuck with failing schools, a health service being sold down the river and a "future" in one dead end job after another, none of them with any security. Meanwhile these toffs breed like rabbits and the fact is celebrated.
Bollocks to the lot of them, give all their property to the national trust and stick the shitsacks in a house on Bransholme.

The Hannibal Directive was the reasoning behind the Black Friday bombings. I didn't think the Directive permitted the absolute killing of an Israeli soldier - just allowed for the 'endangerment of life' to prevent capture. 
Israel's laws are meant to save them from the past and protect them from the future.

It's great to sit around and chat with everyone. And great to drive too. What's not to love?

I tried (and failed) to get an autoawesome of this Archimedes' screw hydro-electric mini power station. It powers the lights and other electrical equipment on the river bank of the Great Ouse. Not bad for a guy that lived circa 250 BC BCE.

It's sad how far apart countries (and cultures) can be on something as seemingly simple as equality.

Interesting. My responses indicated in the big scheme of things, and in comparison to the UK parties. Seems like a no-brainer for me this time...

Interesting, I knew I was left leaning and libertarian but to the degree that it represented me was much further than I anticipated (-8x,-7y)

More than 50,000 families have been silently shipped out of London boroughs in the past three years, an investigation by The Independent can reveal.

If two of the top five questions asked about David Cameron and Ed Miliband are "How old is....?" and "How tall is....?", should these people really be voting?

To be fair, if many people are posing many different questions, it makes sense that the most inane questions are the most common?
Also, questions about a person are different to policy questions (though I doubt many are asking what Party X's policy on X is)

Lengthy opinion piece on free-speech, with recent examples of censorship. I definitely censor myself more these days than before - is that a bad thing? 
From the Internet to the press to the public square, Brits' speech is being policed and punished

Funny you should mention that. We literally just finished it. It's both very interesting and obvious.
The far right usually stems from a fear of a loss of tradition and traditional values.
There's an imbalance in Russia in which equality isn't allowed to be promoted and that can only give an abnormal rise in hatred against those deemed to be different.

Idyllic scene in sunny Bedford, I just hope it's not the shape of things to come for me.

The happiest top five countries are also amongst the richest countries on the planet..... The bottom five are amongst the poorest. Hmm. International study needed for that?
