I’m so embarrassed


one of the few photos that’s cost me a keyboard. Felt the urge to caption it.

Other captions are available. Improve on it and send me a link.

The Prince is Wearing No Clothes!

perhaps if he was an emperor, we wouldn’t be daring to discuss it so openly, but that’s part of the point. He aint. And although he still represents the pinnacle of Capitalist Hierarchy, what has clearly gone missing is Deference.

Actually, I’m impressed. The beeb has spent the whole day looking for someone to lambast the prince, completely without success. Nobody gives a goddam shit. And, obviously, nor should they. Were any prostitutes or married women involved? Was anyone there without their informed consent? No, so woss the problem john?

Internet Usage Correlated With Emotional State

I already knew I wasn’t depressive, but the obvious question after reading this is:

Am I not depressed because I don’t do a lot of file sharing, obsessive email checking or frequent switching?
Or is it cos I is black?

Anti-Elitist Upsets Elite

This (what looks like a) hastily constructed website is the online home of Tranton Oldfield, who, yesterday achieved his 15 minutes in the limelight by forcing a halt to the harmless but egregiously elitist symbol known as the University Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge; the first such politically inspired attack in its 158 year history.

Tranton Oldfield

“rambling and incoherent” is how the Daily Mail tries to rubbish these views, while the Telegraph attacks his anti-elitism stance on the grounds that he went to a good school and university. That gives you some idea of how threatened the elite are made to feel by random individuals like this who dare to put their heads above the parapet or, in this case, water.

Frankly, he is a bit rambling and incoherent in places (aren’t we all?), but his intent and ideals are clear enough and I’m obviously sympathetic to those.

More important though, I thoroughly approve of his non violent tactics. The only person he placed in serious jeopardy was himself. That took real courage and he will, I suspect, become a role model for an increasing number of citizens who are beginning to realise that they are entirely excluded from the decision-making process and who’s only choice is which short-term dictatorship will rule over them for the next few years. A choice they must make from a very short list of unattractive alternatives.

More power to his elbow, I say. And ours…


how long would the human race have survived had we all been this honest with everyone we met…


and ythefuq can’t I embed this damn video!!

BBC News – Email and web use ‘to be monitored’ under new laws

Best April Fool story I’ve come across so far today. Attracted over 1500 comments and from the first couple of pages, they don’t seem to have twigged. Furthermore the same story is appearing in the Daily Mail and the Telegraph. (Which is a worrying illustration of how credible such an authoritarian story actually is…)

One clue to the spoof is that they’re all quoting the same source (the Sunday Times) and you can’t read the Sunday Times original without paying. Clever ruse. Another clue is it’s absence from journals who actually have a clue about the web – like The Register.

And the final “clue” is that, were it not an April Fool, the pillocks would have provided the biggest single incentive to home grown terrorism in British history and even I don’t think they’re quite that stupid…

(update April 2nd) …oh shit. Apparently they are…
