Get Out of My House

I came home to discover a veritable mountain of UKIP propaganda on the doormat. The occasional "I'm great, vote for me" leaflet from your local candidate I can understand (you'd have to actually be living under a rock to not know anything about the party leaders), but I swear to god I think this guy stuck his university dissertation in there as well (or at least someone's dissertation; we are talking about UKIP after all). After I'd crawled around this mesa of dead tree, I had time to be suitably annoyed at all this paper on my floor that I wasn't even going to read. Thus:

PROBLEM: A number of people irritated by the influx of large amounts of propaganda from a party they don't even like.

SOLUTION: Said people find the address of the local candidate and collect as much of their own preferred party's material as they can. They then shove it all through his letter box. Propaganda'd!

(NB: Please do not actually expect me to partake of any of this. I'm far too lazy).

In lighter news,

Dear UKIP,
I am writing to request a new candidate for my area, as I seem to have broken the previous one. Given the choice, I think the local constituents would prefer one that can actually argue this time.
Yours sincerely,
W. Black, esquire.

Update Update. is no more. I'm leaving the address up at the moment, and the logo needs updating on the top bar, but I've now registered, which is mine for at least two years and bannerless. (Harmless gratitude plug for company I got it off). Therefore, please feel free to disseminate the new URL to all and sundry.

In other news, we're going to town on the misuse of Dingle's (Headmaster of Buckinghamshire's prestigious Ryal Grammar School) position in promoting the local Conservascum candidate. Poster campaign ahoy!

Also, if anyone would be interested in a Rhexis newsletter of some description, then send a brief email to rhexis.steathsuit at gmail.

Hail to the new Pope, same as the old Pope...

...apart from this one was in the Hitler youth.

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany is Pope Benedict XVI

He says things like "at the base of this New World Order" is the ideology of "women's empowerment," which erroneously sees "the principal obstacles to [a woman's] fulfillment [as] the family and maternity." (quoted from

Gah. A reactionary misogynist. Just what we all needed.

The world is fucked.

EDIT: Furthermore, rock and roll is evil, and Buddhists are wankers. What a nice man

Interesting Odds and Ends

Researchers Find That Chocolate Compound Stops Cancer Cell Cycle in Lab Experiments

As if you needed an excuse to eat chocolate, you fatties.

No doubt the work of Magrathea.

I guess the surgeons got a little cold.

This is CG.

Deeply impressive. Must have taken an incredible amount of time to render though. Of course, realtime photorealism on this scale is still a very long way of, unless we somehow find a way of simulating millions of photons flying around and bouncing of highly complex surfaces in realtime without actually modelling it.

I have the hair of an angel

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for?

Your expected outcome:

Liberal Democrat

Your actual outcome:

Labour 2
Conservative -72
Liberal Democrat 98
UK Independence Party -23

You should vote: Liberal Democrat

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap univers

Whale-Dolphin Hybrid Has Baby Wholphin

Unfortunately not me

The site redesign is being continued by Saney, so feel free to abuse him at There are unlikely to be any major updates from me at the moment, as I am dying of work, but ~x~ has promised to do UK election coverage soon.

I'm off to collapse now...

The Art of Urban Scrumping

In his show, "Part Troll", Bill Bailey described stealing stereos as "urban scrumping" (scrumping of course being when "youths" nick apples from a convenient tree). This is, of course, amusing. I believe that I have found a superior and - dare I say it - more amusing use for this term.

If you're anything like me, you'll have occasionally over-indulged in an alcoholic respect. Furthermore, you may have once or twice taken a brief trip outside your place of drinking. If you're especially like me (or indeed a certain Mr. Veins), you may well have returned bearing a construction sign or a similarly easily obtainable relic of your inebriated sojourn.

This, friends, is Urban Scrumping.

Obviously, there are limits to what activities this term can encompass. You can't very well return with a stolen car and claim it as automotive urban scrumping. Similarly, if you have an entire room full of traffic cones, you may have over-indulged in this respect.

Naturally, you are very much entering into the spirit of things if you find a keepsake from someone or somewhere you don't like.

If you wake up and realise what you have done and feel those twinges of morning-hangover-regret (this is not unlikely), you may return your momentos and still remain in the spirit of the Art of Urban Scrumping.

And, of course, remember to use your imaginiation. That and don't get caught.

Fuck You, Internet

I'm trying to make the website not be shit right now. If the design spontaneously changes, it's because the current one is SHIT. Hopefully there's another template that doesn't have a measly 300 pixel content area.

Edit: Okay, this one works and doesn't look too bad. Anyone posting images in the future should make sure that it is no larger than 460 pixels wide, or make a thumbnail that fits this requirement and link offsite. Withiel, get on MSN so we can talk!
