Trumping Reason

My wife seems to think that ignorant people are taking over the world. So how about you? Are there more intelligent or stupid people in the world?

I say this because Hitler got elected, as did Mussolini. Both of those countries boasted tech-savvy populations, steeped in religion, and with modern political systems.

Yet they both went to Hell. If it could happen before, could it happen again?

I still remember my history classes in junior high and the teacher talking about the concern folks had of Kennedy being Catholic.

Folks seem less concerned with a Muslim mayor than a Jewish one in this case.

Although how a guy born in New York got the job last time is confusing. Do you guys not care where someone is from if he can do the job?

the Quran describes how Mary, the mother of Jesus, was approached by an angel from God, bringing her tidings she had never imagined: that she will give birth to a son, a Messiah, who will be of the righteous and will be a prophet of God, calling the Children of Israel (the Israelites) to the straight path of God.

“(And mention) when the angels said, ‘O Mary, indeed God gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary –... [Read More]

I noticed OpenBSD 5.9 was released last month and I've a couple of ex-Vista laptops I needed to configure with adequate encryption at rest. It must be five years since I checked how it installed so I did it a couple of times this morning. Very bare and spartan, the initial configure, but adding what's wanted is wonderfully simple.

Rather against my expectations the whole process was simpler than Slackware. I typed less and ended up with a laptop I felt quite pleased with. Slackware... [Read More]

In the "You couldn't make it up" department.....

Lidl is recalling its own-brand tinned herring fillets - because their packaging does not warn shoppers they may contain FISH.

This could possibly be yet another shot in the EU in or out war.
I would like to know the logic behind the recall.

Somewhere I saw an article in which the relative strength of gravity and electromagnetism was compared rather vividly.

Take two planets the size of Earth, it started. Strap each to the back of an electrically insulated volunteer. Place the volunteers nose to nose.

Normally you'd expect the volunteers to be crushed as gravity draws the planets together.

But, went the article, if you merely increase the number of electrons on each person by 10%, the system... [Read More]

I am trying to make friends outside Facebook while applying the same principles. Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passersby what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom.

Friend who accused me of lying about liking sushi cancelled on me again

Apr 28, 2016 - 4:31 PM - by jashley
Last week she ended up cancelling because she said everyone who said they could make it cancelled at the last minute, and that she would reschedule for the next week, and today she messaged me saying she forgot she had an appointment to get her phone fixed (on Friday night) Does this seem weird to anyone? First of all, you need to make an appointment to get a phone fixed, and they do it on a Friday night? And she forgot? Sounds like an excuse to brush me off

Damning government report on TTIP

Damning government report on TTIP

Fresh off the press today is the government’s business report on the EU-US trade deal, TTIP, and its potential impacts on the UK. It finds that TTIP will have little economic and political benefit, even going as far as to say that it will pose ‘meaningful costs’ to the UK. These damning conclusions come with no surprise, and reveal that TTIP is ‘likely to provide the UK with few or no benefits’.

Here are the key... [Read More]
