I'm (the) Batman

In memories of one of Harry's dress-up parties:

I still had one of those capes when I was cleaning out all of my stuff. Can't remember which good home it went to.

I've taken out a few sidebar links to defunct blogs. If I've deleted anything you wanted to stay either let me know so I can replace it, or pop it back in.

Why Isn't Anyone Yelling?

Read this today; apparently the Bush administration hired Blackwater to carry out political assassinations. Bastards. But the gist of the article is that no assassinations were ever carried out under the program; whew!

So why am I apparently the only one asking the question "Did we get our money back?" I mean don't get me wrong; I'm relieved that my tax dollars weren't spent on assassinating people, but I'd kind of rather they weren't given to Cheney's croneys for _not_ assassinating people either...

For the Super-Geeks: Maths and Zombies

An outbreak of zombies infecting humans is likely to be disastrous, unless extremely aggressive tactics are employed against the undead," says the paper, titled When Zombies Attack! Mathematical Modelling of an Outbreak of Zombie Infection.

"Thus, if zombies arrive, we must act quickly and decisively to eradicate them before they eradicate us."

Web Comic - Want to Buy Dignity

It occurred to me on the weekend that I'd been a little lax in not sharing this web comic with you all. A dear friend of mine writes a web comic, Want to Buy Dignity, based on some situations from WoW, specifically the darker races, and it's fun and somewhat amusing. And the dark elf has a bad-ass platypus called Frumpy for a familiar, so what's not to love?

They regularly update, so if you're into web comics or WoW or both you might want to follow this one.

Role Models

I think I may have just found some potential role models: Margaret and Helen. Two women born in 1925/26 who have been best friends for 60 years and are now blogging about American politics, and it's fantastic. Good rants delivered as letters to each other, with the response from the other one at the end of the post. Their banner image is the two of them on motorised granny carts on the deck of a ship. Well worth reading. Hands up everyone who wants to be them when they grow up?

An excerpt from The Appreciation or Depreciation of Michael Jackson:
If it were up to me, I would establish a few rules right about now
regarding hypocrisy. Something along the lines of:

  • If you’re Michael Jackson’s father now is not the time to be enjoying the
  • You can’t be Pro-Life and Pro-War at the same time. If one of these
    dispositions has to be in your cadre, then pick one and live with the
  • You can’t deny the right to marry to some and then cheat on your spouse. The
    right to happily marry belongs to all no mater how unhappy it makes you.
  • You can’t tolerate the atrocities of one President for eight years and then
    assign the consequences to one who follows. From this day forward everything was
    Reagan’s fault.
  • The Christian Right should be forced to spend a week in Iran. May the best
    radicals win.
  • The Real Housewives should actually be housewives.

About that last one. I mean it. Really

Also, Coz & Rob, I read this interview in this morning's freebie newspaper and thought of your skeptics society, you may wish to post/discuss/ridicule this:
