I finally got around to setting up G+ on my Google Apps account so a bunch of you will see me re-adding you. This version of me is now officially deprecated.

Yay! Antony Green has gone to a strange foreign land to explain to us civilised people how their quaint electoral customs work.

Don't think Kiwis would approve of such a suggestion. but it is weird that the concept of preferential voting is completely foreign to them. and I don't like some of the quirks that MMP brings.

Stay classy, America.
US lawmakers prodded by the frozen food industry have moved to protect schools' ability to count pizza sauce as a vegetable in lunches for students.

Resharing this in case you're the one person who is still going "wtf" and missed the Facebook and Twitter announcements.

Amazing work here.

Brilliant work. And amazing to see that so much from that time survives until now.

I love things that really show me just how much artistic talent I don't have.

Do Not Let The Government Take Charge Of Censor-Ship!

by T. Herman Zweibel, Onion Publisher Emeritus

I am informed by my pathetically subservient Editorial Board that today has been set aside to mark the abomination that is Internette Censor-Ship, an idea that makes me tremble with such indignant jaw-clenching fury that my cast-iron dentures have welded themselves together in rage! How dare any duly elected, appointed, or otherwise acquired set of officials think they have authority over the Internette, whatever the hell that may turn out to be? I may not understand exactly what this "Internette," is, but I am advised by my trembling solicitors that I am not alone in this regard; and furthermore, one does not have to be some rude mechanical sort to understand that speech is the only true freedom and that it must never be constrained by some cowardly and mealy-mouthed perversion of Law.

No, speech must be constrained by wealthy news-paper oligarchs such as my-self! I have been constraining speech with both hands for decades now, and I dare say that no Washington fat-cat could easily outdo me or my fellow fat-cats in terms of censorship! Why, if we allow the Government to play censor, why, then we admit that our system is baseless and corrupt, and like many wealthy news-men who have dedicated themselves to debasing and corruping the system, I have been avoiding that admission for many decades now. So to Hell with the Govern-ment's Censor-Ship! So long as media barons such as I live and breathe, our Nation shall have no need of it!

"Behind the military manoeuvrings, the human story revolves around people backstabbing, bitching, making catty asides, breaking off friendships and betraying one another. Ignore the gunfire and it's like a soap opera set in a ballet school."
