- I know, I know, but there were too many serious links today.
- How cool is this? We are living in the future. Give them a target, they work together to build it autonomously. I WANT MY FLYING CAR
- Ye gods, this may be a worse bit of journalism than the Hezza interview. I mean, I know it's in the Fail, but... This link goes to Tabloid Watch, frequently a good read. Try to avoid linking to The Fail when possible.
- PZ debunks the latest media meme. WARNING: this particular bit of crappy science is about rape, PZ thinks it's bobbins, which is what it looked like when I first saw it.
- A mostly accurate summary of what's going on--I've commented on the bits I think are factually wrong, but the summary itself is useful. I do wish peopl ewould stop using that tired and factually false 'gerrymandering' trope though, there are bloody good arguments for this process being flawed, that aint' even close to valid.
- Known Tim for years. Yes, he can be a bit intense at times, but watching the hell he and his family have gone through as a result of Dorries' lies, obfuscations, half truths and slanders hasn't been pleasant. Now he has proof. And there's a CPS file on her now.
- More details on the proposals, with Clegg's speech in video. I are happy,
- Jennie proposed this in a consultation at her first ever Lib Dem conference, after we'd talked about it, lots, here at home. Now it's, officially, Govt policy, and beinh heralded all over the place as a brilliant plan. This is a Good Thing, and I'm a very happy policy wonk reading this.
- This really is a train wreck interview isn't it? At one point she complains "he has clearly marked me out as too simple for that." I'm inclined to suspect he may be a good judge of character and ability. You?
- The mind boggles. Given a strong platform to put forward coherent arguments against a Yes vote, the chair of the No campaign writes this? If anyone wants me to rebut anything specific, let me know, but it's just too easy to bother.
- Not sure whether this is a valid point to campaign on, or if it helps in any way. Keeping to the principles strikes me as better, but is it indicative that worse MPs prefer the status quo?
- Pretty sure Tim's right here, speculators stockpiling means prices stabilise over medium term and encourage farmers to produce more. Counterpoints?
