About Me

I got the nickname Ron Obvious because -- in addition to being a huge Python fan -- my name really is Ron and I used to start sentences with \"Obviously\" a lot. Obviously, that\'s no longer a problem.

A good cup of tea

A good cup of tea must be made with boiled water. Not microwaved, not hot. Boiled.

It should also never be served in a paper or styrofoam cup. Never!

Also, the serving of iced-tea should be a flogging offence.

I'm glad to get this off my chest, and I hope I've educated some people today.

Calvin and Hobbes' snowmen

Man, these are brilliant. If I were a kid, I'd have tried to make some like this. Has anyone tried?

From the title I assumed this might an amusing entry along the lines of 'lies your history teacher told you', but it's nothing but right-wing funded pseudoscience:

to wit: Global warming is nonsense, why there's more evidence for intelligent design than for Darwinism, Aids in Africa was never a problem, there are no environmental problems, science and religion are not in conflict, stem cell research is worthless.

Sickening. I took it upon myself to reshelve it under Fiction. The first time in my life I've done that.

Sorry, I know this is nothing new. Just venting.
