But I've made a pact with me, myself and I.

I shall keep my new blog updated. Updated daily that is, unless time seriously doesn't permit.

I tend to let "the real me" flow out into a keyboard, which has upsides and downsides. More down than up I should imagine.

Judge for yourself - link's in my sig.

And the ref takes a point away!
That was below the belt :(

There is no way to prove that we aren't living inside a computer. We could easily all be software, as could be the world around us. If this were so, after thinking about it (for way too long) there is absolutely no way to prove or disprove it.
Absense of evidence is not evidence itself.

Let me think about that for a while. We all know I'm not exactly very quick on this sort of thing.

Deliciously white trash

Btw, I know the US is the white trash capital of the world... and you are in the UK ahluka... so I was wondering if you were from the US and are the exported type of white trash, or the foreign type of white trash?

Basically it's an exercise on futility. It's rather easy to conceive all sorts of theories based only on imagination and the sheer knowledge that in the end no one can prove otherwise.


Humans are in fact goats dreaming that are humans
A spoon is flat. Our brains deceive us to think it is not. Physics is also deceiving.
There's green men living on Mars.
God exists and it made the universe and all things in it.

I'm foreign white trash. Why do you ask?

Just curious... didn't know that white trash existed much outside of the US and maybe Canada.

And that is me generalizing and stereotyping and all that stuff.

Douglas Adams disagrees in The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. According to Deep Thought, a computer programmed by mice, the meaning of life, the Universe, and everything is 42. Deep Thought double checked the answer several times. We just don't know the question...

The rest would be a huge spoiler.

The UK has the finest white trash. Pikies! (Or is it Pikeys?).

Think gypsies, but they're Irish and are never seen without shotguns.

But... just because we don't know it... doesn't mean it hasn't been asked.

does white trash == trailer trash?

Essentially, yes, white trash is typically associated with trailer trash.

what's with this comment approval thing?

Hmm I haven't configured anything. Let me go check it out.
EDIT: Right I've set it to allow non-member to post comments. Does that help?

... they're normally called Travelers (sometimes known as "knackers" ... ). We rarely call them gypsies. That's just like the leprechauns and "Tir na Óg" and whatnot. Well, perhaps not.

Why an every-day-updated-blog though? ... should we start a poll to see how long the board thinks he'll keep it up for :) Not that I don't have faith in you

I updated it today. Woot.
I'm going to try and keep up the daily thing and I'm only posting at late morning / early afternoon. Not much happens between 7:00 and 12:00 over here.

Oh and bear with me regarding the totally buggered line-breaking. If I let the editor do it for me then it lets it run over the links bar to the right and when I break the lines myself the editor feels the need to add extra ones at very inconvenient places, as you can see.

You mean the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Answer_to_Life%2C_the_Universe%2C_and_Everythi ng) (spoilers)

I've just been informed I'm a "high tempo blogger". You guys have been keeping up, right?
