Whichever way you look at it, this is SO wrong

A story fluttered into my view on Facebook, that repository of factual information. I noticed a few other similar reports of the same incident and given the Here’s A Quick Recap Of All The Times Australia Treated Muslims Like Complete Garbage This Week I had read not long ago, together with the reports I was hearing on […]

I am bragging

I have reason to brag – and so I am! I have achieved THIS major milestone! As a result of that, yesterday I was able to swim 3 kilometres! No, It didn’t take 16 hours – that is just the time I left the pool. :) I’m pretty proud of both these achievements, given my […]

Read Katherine Murphy’s The Acid Test

I’d like to draw your attention to a very interesting article on The Guardian by Katherine Murphy. Given The Guardian doesn’t have the WordPress “reblog” feature, this is the best I can do! Given that parliament seems to be on a path to deliver a bigger surveillance state and less means for whistleblowers to expose its […]

Why ebola puts the zombie apocalypse into proper perspective

I hear Microsoft have brought it back with Windows 9 – good move. The Office themes are too white. Whiter than white. Oh, there is […]

Australia and Torture

Australia and Torture. These are two words I never thought I’d hear or read in the same sentence. Yet this week I have. I’ve tried to ignore it, but I cannot. After all, we know about the operations of one of our closest allies, the USA. Torture | Amnesty International USA * The Bush Administration […]

Terrorists are terrorists

Let’s get one thing perfectly clear. Terrorists are terrorists. Regular readers know as an atheist I don’t have a lot of tolerance for religions. I acknowledge there are a lot of very good religious people but I believe those people are good people with or without religion: they would be great humanists. Religion didn’t make […]

Where will our kids work?

For quite some time I have been concerned about the commercial drive to move roles off-shore. I’m an accountant, I understand the business drivers to reduce costs and maximise profit. I am sure the concerns I express here were expressed in a similar fashion during the industrial revolution.
