I’ve had it with Frank Miller's obsessive hatred of citizenship, which he portrays as futile and decadent in every work, His latest screed - a vicious attack onthe confused but eagerly civic-minded kids in Occupy Wall Street - prompted me to finally post my long delayed response to the book & film "300"... one of the worst deposits of propaganda in our time.

Just a goofy little blog post based on my first evening's play.
Magic and mayhem in Bethesda's most beautiful, burnable, lightning-shockable world to date.

Chile Volcano Plume Explodes With Lightning

Since you were very enthusiastic about the Chile Ash Cloud picture I posted last night http://goo.gl/TsJX7, I decided to do some research and share more amazing pictures with you.

The eruption of the Puyehue volcano in the Andes mountains of southern Chile in mid-2011 provided some spectacular images of the force of nature.

Ash covers the landscape and thousands of people were evacuated from the surrounding rural communities.

The volcano, which hasn't been active since 1960 when it erupted after an earthquake, sent its plume of ash 6 miles high across Argentina and toward the Atlantic Ocean.

source: on each picture, you will find a text with the photographer's name

I went back to the occupation, and then wrote about things.
Over a week in, and despite mass arrests, the protesters are still camped out around the corner from Wall Street, and the Internet is watching.

I cannot begin to imagine just how depressing and frightening it must be to write a blog, an opinion piece and receive almost psychotic abuse from anonymous commenters. Well, I can imagine some of it, but I'm an ugly old bloke and I've grown a very thick skin.
I get torrents of abuse on YouTube but that's normal. The comments always say a lot more about the tragic boys who write them than about me. I also get well thought out, critical comments which often disagree with my opinions but those are different, creative, constructive and welcome.
However, if I was a woman, particularly a young woman who had the outrageous audacity to express an opinion about anything, I am going to be threatened with rape and murder by furious, angry, dangerous immature men.
I have spent my entire adult life trying to understand my own and other mens mysoginy, why, as 'big strong men' we are so utterly terrified of women.
It is mainly a young male phenomena, as I've got older I'm less and less scared of women. When I say young male, I'm not referring to actual age, I'm talking about emotional maturity. The less mature the man, the more apparent is the mysogyiny. Boys of all ages really need to grow up a bit.
A very disturbing report in the Guardian.
