Fuck Yeah! Just got my results, and I ended up with 840/1200 marks, which works out as exactly 70 (i.e., a first), meaning I did exactly the bare minimum to get this degree.

How very punk…
This story is messed up. An eight-year-old boy has sparked an unlikely outcry in Sweden after failing to invite two of his classmates to his birthday party. The boy’s school says he has violated the children’s rights and has complained to the Swedish Parliament. The school, in Lund, southern Sweden, argues that if invitations are [...]

The cities are self-sufficient and movable, and are designed to house 50,000 people. Vincent Callebaut is the name of the fellow who came up the concept. I wonder if he ever played Final [...]
Following on from the Broken post, I neglected to mention that Trent made a video to accompany the album’s music. It’s all available on YouTube, so I would be remiss in not sharing it with you. It’s rather graphic, so don’t watch it if you have strong objections to seeing naked guys mutilated and tortured. [...]
