I don't read Freethought blogs - but apparently Richard Carrier has been suspended from the blog and uninvited from skepticon due to reports of sexual harassment.
You couldnt write this stuff!

Richard Dawkins & Nightwish - Part 4 The Greatest Show on Earth.

This is a terrific piece of music.
I'm probably a bit behind the curve, but I didnt know he had done this until recently.
For those that dont know, Nightwish are an orchestrial Metal band, famed mostly over the years for always featuring virtuosa female vocalists.
heres the whole 24 minute piece, with a very well done fan mashup video

Aliens always helps make boring old biological evolution a bit more interesting. A recent lecture from the SETI Institute
A central question in understanding the possibilities for life in the universe is what fundamental constraints and tradeoffs organize evolution. In this talk Dr. Kempes will discuss how power-laws in biology highlight common underlying constraints––often basic physical laws––across the diversity of life on our planet. He will then describe how work that we have done shows how these relationships can be derived and used to predict or interpret a range of phenomena including major evolutionary tradeoffs and ecological response. Specifically, Dr. Kempes will focus on energetic limitations in microbial life which allow us to predict the smallest possible bacteria and several other evolutionary transitions. Notably, he predicts that the smallest bacteria are limited by fundamental maintenance metabolism along with general space requirements. Dr. Kempes will also describe how similar work in vascular plants can be used to predict ecological structure from resource constraints and how this provides a range of tools for constraining and potentially detecting vegetation in a range of exoplanetary environments

Alonso ok'd to take part in FP1. Hopefully this weekend will give best indication yet to where Mclaren Honda really stands. I am quietly hopeful that they are on the right path now, and expect to see them gradually clawing way back up the field as season progresses.
Got to see some of his (Alonso) wrecked car last week - good grief!

F1
Mclaren Honda - Silverstone.
last I checked it had done 5 laps by about 4pm. Dosnt sound impressive, but that is pretty much as expected.
The mood seems to be it was considered a successful day.

#Referendum .
I don't think I shall be voting in the EU Referendum.
While my instincts are that I would rather remain, this is not based on any tangible arguments or information. I have found it next to impossible to weed out the rhetoric from substance. An uninformed vote is not a democracy I value.

A vote unused is a waste of democracy. If you truly can't decide, that implies you are fairly happy with the status quo, so you should vote FOR the status quo, I.e. To remain.

The alternative is to learn more so you can make that informed decision.

its getting a bit grubby, but still not a chip on it.
Decanter from Mclaren for the 1998 formula one constructors championship.
I meant to get some oil to put in it to make it a bit more of a feature - but never got around to it

Tyler will be missed by all who knew him - great character, wit and generally a bloody good bloke
Tyler Alexander, one of the founding members of McLaren, has died at the age of 75. Alexander joined driver Bruce McLaren in the early 1960s to help set up the team that would go on to become one of the most successful in F1 racing.
