BEST is fun

When I said BEST is boring I was primarily thinking of the science. I’m not too surprised to find that many other people aren’t. For such folk, there is much fun to be had, so I suppose I’ll join in too. I was going to take the piss out of Watts (h/t KK) for Nature…

The shadow of Sauron

Nice pic, eh? Click for more; ht to Bad Astronomy. I don’t have any as good as that, but I do have:

This is actually a comment made at Early Warning about the current Eurozone crisis. Any number of people, too numerous to mention, believe that the situation there (or here? We’re not part of the Euro, but are economies connect closely) is a slowly unfolding train wreck, but that as so often elsewhere, the politicians don’t…

Amsterdam man

The long-awaited follow-up to Brighton man and about as exciting for non-runners. If you lack patience, the answer is 3:57.

Occupy Wall Street?

I was going to write something about “occupy wall street” – I even found their statement, and was going to analyse it. But really all I was going to do was snark. So instead I’ll point you at Anarchists for good government which has the benefit of being by someone who was there. I agree…
