The Challenge and The Will

Take a look here, for our brief explanation of today’s (Tuesday 6th November) posts. For a time in my youth I was neighbours with a Cuban American lady and her family. During my university days as a politics student, when I was home visiting my own family,¬†we would chat about the world’s ills and how … Continue reading

Textbooks As Manipulation (Part Two)

I am just going to jump right in to what I was talking about yesterday, so if you didn’t read Part One, go take a step back. So what is this American exceptionalism you ask? Well the term itself is probably less than one hundred years old, but the concept is much older, like Alexis … Continue reading

Introducing The Redesign

Welcome. Again. So after our year long hiatus, we decided to spruce up the site a bit. You know, one year older, one year wiser. We are still working out the bugs but we hope you like it. If you do let us know. If you don’t, I suppose you can let us know that … Continue reading

Stealing Good Ideas

We are not noble citizens. In fact, you could perhaps call us lots of nasty things. You would be right. We’d be ok with it. Then we’d call you a cunt. Anyway. The long and very interesting image below was something I came across recently, and I believe more people should read it. It’s a … Continue reading

Buy Now, Smile Later

I was in a shopping centre/mall recently. A big one. An expensive one. A very strangely unhappy one. It had sweet scent of leather and cold hard cash. And this was interesting for me. Now, I would like to stress first off that this is not an anti-capitalist rant, or anything like that. Maybe a … Continue reading

Welcome (Back) To The Internet

Hello. Glad you could make it. You know us, and thankfully, we don’t know you, (because let’s face it you’re obviously a strange sort of person that has found yourself at our lovely corner of the interwebs), and we’d like to point out we are still alive. Barely. I feel I, or possibly we, have … Continue reading

Um. No.

Stumbleupon brought me across this heap of shit: Surely if there was that much ‘chemistry’ you’d fucking know about it. Unless you had paralysis localised solely in your cock-and-bollock region. I suggest a Stalinist internet purge.

I am the 1% (Who can see beyond the fun of being a hippie)

Whilst whoring it up with StumbleUpon I was taken to a Daily Kos article expressing the author’s distaste over the people who obviously don’t understand the Occupy [enter city here] movement. And irony of ironies, what do I see? Someone missing the point! Now, maybe it’s because it’s a website dedicated to American ‘liberals’ (I … Continue reading

Sticking it to the man

Get Down From That Horse

Ever heard of a place called Xinjiang? It’s kind of a large place. Pretty big, pretty empty too. Ok, what about Tibet? Now, I know you’ve heard of that. Big place, pretty empty. Actually, what about Uyghurs? Have you heard of them? Nope. Hmm. Interesting. So Xinjiang and Tibet have a few things in common … Continue reading
