God vs. Science

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Religion     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Parts are taken from Dawkins' books and lectures, but they bear repeating. http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2010/12/19/a-holiday-message-from-ricky-gervais-why-im-an-atheist/ — Continue reading ยป

Sun Chips Noisy Bags

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Social     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Wouldn't call myself a fan, but I like the regular Sun chips and I sometimes get a small bag to go with my sandwich. I've been hearing about the new noisy bags for some time but until last week I had no idea what the complaints were all about. So last week I was at — Continue reading ยป

Gawker's Hack, Spammers' Treasure

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Hacking     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Today, out of curiosity, I downloaded the hacked Gawker files from The Pirate Bay. I'm not sure if I broke any laws by doing that, but I was only interested in checking out their PHP source files. You can learn a lot by looking at production code other than your own. While my intentions were — Continue reading ยป

God Hates Elizabeth Edwards - Wonderful

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Religion     # , , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Elizabeth Edwards once said: "I don't believe that we should live our lives that way for some promise of eternal life, but because that's what's right.

Amazon.com and Pedophilia

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Law,Money     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

First amazon.com accepts a book that apparently promotes, or at least condones, pedophilia (I haven't read the book, nor do I plan to). Then basks in the publicity as complaints begin to pour in and the media covers the story ad-nauseum. Then it stokes the flames more by hiding behind the first amendment, realizing that — Continue reading ยป

Gold Keeps Rising

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Financial,Money     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

It seems like there's no way of stopping gold from its upward march. Even with the stronger dollar today, gold surpassed $1,410 an once, setting a new price record.
