The pressure to be stupid

I think the overwhelming pressure in society now (and maybe always, I can’t always decide), is to be stupid. Be an idiot. Society wants you to be a mindless consumer, to read stupid shit newspapers, watch stupid shit on TV and either think nothing about the things that matter, or just parrot the stupid shit ...

Things that drove me nuts today…

Two things, this news piece: Call to let children hunt in NSW national parks As if the “let anyone shoot in parks from March” thing isn’t bad enough, this is just insane, sorry.

One of those days…

I’d been having a pretty good day today. Students at swimming carnival, quiet all round, plenty of chance to get things done. Then you get some crazy work crap happen and it all goes to hell. It seems to have sorted itself out now, but I’ll just say that yes, it was reported fairly widely, ...

Papal resignation

Papal resignation

Well I guess this was surprising, given the way the job usually goes: Pope to resign. Not enormously interesting in a direct or personal sense, but it is history-making, and really, what a history!
