  • Too many homilies and sermons anyhow. I suppose old habits die hard, but having shed his shibboleths, Dan Barker should learn to live and let live. Who needs to be preached at?

  • The way things are, I should think that throwing people out of the Greatest Country in The World, would be doing them an immense favour.

  • Excellent! Or as I used to say in my many years Down Under; Bonza!

  • A mother in the US state of Michigan has been sentenced to seven days

    Notwithstanding Alan’s pertinent reservations, still, as we say i […]

  • Throughout human history, as far as I can determine, kneeling has been a sign of respect, and perhaps submission. We kneel to the monarch and in all religions to god. I know of no instances where kneeling is or […]

    Thanks Mad Englishman. I should perhaps have added: This mask is on the side of hiding the truth, but I’d had a few last night and was not at my sharpest.

    Or maybe it’s just that St Paul, like religious leaders everywhere, understood the importance of keeping the state sweet, and the sound sense of trying to create some kind of symbiosis. Ir didn’t help him, they topped him none-the-less.

    They are ringing their bells, soon they will be ringing their hands

    Sir Robert Walpole, British PM , commenting on the celebrations at the outbreak of the War of Jenkins’ Ear (1739), which he had done his utmost to avoid, unlike President Trump.

    If people have any sense they will avoid him like the plague.

    International outsourcing, zero hour contracts, money – to use Clive Jenkins’ colourful though dated phrase – “whizzing around the telex wires of the world,” money having no national home of its own, money accumulating at an ever increasing rate at the top of the unstable pile, stored in places unknown. Altogether not a situation where regulation…[Read more]

    The amount of punishment my body has taken as an electrician should be looked at as well. I didn’t get a million a week in wages though.

    Very good point. Occupational health and safety are major problems, which are not addressed in the building industry. I have many builders in my acquaintance and all the evidence is that after the age of f…[Read more]

    Good snark, eejit.

    Thanks for the compliment Stephen. Brain damage is common enough in soccer players, due mostly to ball heading, rugby in latter years has become almost as dangerous as American football, but to their credit the rugby authorities have taken great pains to modify the rules on scrimmaging and tackling, and doctors and…[Read more]

    Is Brain Damage an Inevitable Result of Playing Football?

    More likely a necessary condition for playing it, well the American variety anyhow.

    Mind you…reading some of the stuff that they quote, you’d think that they might have a point. There seemed to be much more crude sex than literature. Ah me! The old become reactionary.

    I’ve heard that it’s a brilliant scam – you take the money, run for a bit without delivering anything but the basics, don’t pay the rent or the HP on the equipment you have bought, then scarper with the money collected (including “voluntary” contributions from nutty parents), and, of course, the teachers’ wages. Any takers? Sincerely Eejit, PhD…[Read more]

    What elegant science! What clarity of language and penetrating insight!

    But it’s like I said at #1: you can prove things until you’re blue in the face, exhausted by constantly having to regurgitate and attribute facts and peer reviews which are commonplaces in the scientific world, but it won’t make any difference, they’ll still stick to the bible, mercenary so-called scientists from the mining and chemical industries…[Read more]

    I’ve been watching Fox News. They’re already doing a job on Comey, spilling govt. secrets (they say he wrote the email on his work laptop), unfair treatment of Trump compared to Hilary Clinton, breach of confidence by leaking information etc. If they had their way, he’d be the one to go to jail, they are saying that he has probably committed…[Read more]

    A debate won’t do any good anyway. In 1860 at the Oxford Union, Huxley wiped the floor with Wilberforce; that was 157 years ago, and the Christians are still banging on about creation and a new earth.
