It’s been a few days longer than I planned. So there’s a few links there. I even pared some down to make it easier to swallow. Like a breakdown of the US President’s State of the Union speech, and various bits and pieces that I couldn’t happily categorise. It’s all part of the normal process, making sure that I’m not just filling this page with crap that was only half interesting in the first place.
Left in this time – an article about the heresy of Fred Phelps’ granddaughter, a story about monks and the law, a rundown of Bill Gates’ Reddit AMA, the Ghost In The Shell, Doctor von Hagens, the usual humour and spiders – lots of spiders!
