Monsters under the bed

Monsters under the bed

As a small child the most scary thing about going to bed was the monster hiding under there. Are they there to scare you or are they hiding there because they think that you’re the scary one? Do they just want to get on with their lives? Who knows. Your parent’s always tell you that

Poe actually working…

I saw the below image on a Far Right parody page on Facebook. I thought it was something that they had discovered on the web. Either that or they got someone who had some skill in Photoshop to do it for them. Then, a couple of days later I discovered it on a Far Right

Hug your SysAdmin today…

Today is SysAdmin day. To give it is full title System Administrator Appreciation Day. The day when the unsung hero of your company’s internet connections should be celebrated. We are a simple bunch. Always trying to keep your computers working. All the hassle with little reward. The first one to be shouted if something isn’t

Atheist suicide bomber?

Atheist suicide bomber?

I was listening to something on my iPod when atheism was mentioned as well as Richard Dawkins. That got me thinking about that as well as religion in general. I have to say that I describe myself as a Lapsed Atheist if anyone asks. It makes people laugh and then think. I sometimes lapse into

Planning on World Domination?

Planning on World Domination?

Regular readers of this blog will be aware that I have a hobby. That of trying to take over the world. If that won’t work, just being able to get something to eat. That predator-prey thing. I have tried the services of the best known supplier to the world of Evil. ACME Inc. Possibly not
