An unusually effective path to something approaching happiness.
I’ve finally got around to reading the damn thing, that vile source of so many of the 20th century’s woes. Frankly, I find it totally redundant in today’s world. If Marx ever did have a point, then over a century of incremental societal reforms have taken it well and truly away from him. Now his [...]
Apologies for all the recent navel-gazing, but here comes some more. What job or jobs would best suit me? Between all the stuff I’ve already thought of and all the facetious suggestions maybe someone will throw out something worth considering.
Two days on, and my newly rediscovered ambition to become a doctor remains undented. Does anyone know where I can get a crash course in first year university biology?
The picture says it all… There’s a good sample of reactions to the Florida Republican primary results on Andrew Sullivan’s blog, which is also where I happened across the photograph of a rather dejected-looking Mitt Romney.
I can’t believe that this is even getting covered (and I realise the inherent irony in me complaining about this). It’s another case of Clinton playing the victim to generate sympathy, just as she did before the New Hampshire primary when she pretended to cry. Based on the pictures it’s hardly conclusive that Obama saw [...]
There is a decent to very good chance that one or both of the US 2008 presidential election candidates will be known by the early hours of Wednesday next week. Given that Barack Obama stands a great chance of becoming president should he prevail over the Clintons’ dirty tactics, February 5th (Super Tuesday, the day [...]
From the BBC: Ecuadorean officials are investigating the slaughter of 53 sea lions from the Galapagos Islands nature reserve, which were found with their heads caved in. The dead animals included 13 pups, 25 youngsters, nine males and six females. Galapagos National Park official Victor Carrion told AFP news agency that each was killed by [...]
It looks like Giuliani is well and truly finished. While I’m on the subject of the GOP, now seems as good a time as any to announce that this blog is rooting for Mitt Romney in the Republican nomination race and in the general election too, should his opponent be Hillary Clinton.
This is the latest idea to take my wavering fancy. It involves taking a GAMSAT test, which I know little about, and which I would have only until the 15th March to study for. Since I’m such a glutton for punishment these days I find this challenge oddly appealing. I’ve no idea how difficult it [...]
Central to the pressing matter of what I’m going to do next year is where I’m going to do it. Sometimes Cork doesn’t seem so bad, but other times I want to bolt directly to the other side of the world just to get away from its drab buildings, awful weather and various other minor/major/absolutely [...]
A friend told me about this. It sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than Law anyway…
This might be old news (and 11,000,000 YouTube views suggests that it is), but I hadn’t seen it until earlier today. As impressive as it is, the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines has ran into difficulties in its attempt to bring its show on tour, according to the International Herald Tribune: [...]
Link. Worth a listen. It touches on the most appealing and most annoying aspects of his candidacy.
Rudy Giuliani is going to lose Florida to McCain or Romney and then fall of the radar, leaving the GOP nomination race a dead heat between McCain and Romney. Even as the only viable alternative to Romney, McCain will still struggle to raise funds and so Romney will effectively buy Super Tuesday with his vast [...]keep looking »
