Sued Underpants

leave a comment »


It is reported that Saddam Hussein wants to sue The Sun over pictures of him in his underpants.

I think that such dictators should be routinely humiliated or worst.

They live and thrive on power so the more embarrassment the better and NO they are not victims, after murdering millions they are war criminals and deserve whatever they get.

Googling the Earth

leave a comment »

Google has recently released a new version of their Google Earth product.

There are several versions but the home use one is fun.

It saves having to look up things in an atlas, and can be downloaded from here

Firewalls To Go

leave a comment »

My favourite anti-virus software people, Grisoft, have just released a combo anti-viral and firewall product: AVG Anti-Virus plus Firewall Edition

I have not tested yet but will update when I do.

It will be interesting to compare it with ZoneAlarm freeware version

Grisoft offer a freeware version of their standard anti-virus scanner: AVG Free Edition

New Popinjays

with one comment

Whilst I was never in favour of the invasion of Iraq, I do find that the
Drink-soaked Trotskyite Popinjays For WAR are sometimes very amusing.

Site of the Week 2

leave a comment »

I have always liked Orwell’s writtings, in particular Down and Out in London and Paris.

His Homage to Catalonia is a bitting indicment of pre-WW2 Stalinism, best read with any of Paul Preston’s fine works.

Therefore, it is with great pleasure I present two sites of the week:

http://www.k-1.com/Orwell/

http://orwell.ru/

On-line copies of his work can be found on these sites.

Shock! Horror! They are Nazis!

leave a comment »

Officially, and finally it has been acknowledged that the BNP are Nazis, as if we didn’t know, but still:

a landmark ruling by the Standards Board for England, other politicians can refer to them as “Nazis”.

The decision came after the BNP complained about comments made by Liberal Democrat councillor Gavin Stollar of Epping Forest Council.”

Found Out?

Having completed the Feminist Test, I ‘scored':

“Gender-Liberal
You scored 66% Gender-Abolitionist, 60% Sexually Liberal, and 40 % Socialist

You are the Gender-Liberal. This means that you share qualities with both Liberal Feminists and Gender Abolitionists. Like the Liberal Feminist..”

and it goes on and on.

“You scored higher than 53% on Gender
You scored higher than 7% on Sexuality
You scored higher than 46% on Class”

Shame, the questions on the feminist test sounds like they were constructed by Post-Modernist graduate, I am sure that the campaign for plain English would be very annoyed.

I should never have read my old girlfriend’s Spare Rib look at the after effects!
