The party of tax cuts.
The party of public service cuts.
The party of privately cut deals.
National: we put the N in cuts.

Via No Right Turn - the proposal of a 0.05% tax on speculative transactions which could raise billions of UK pounds.

Sounds like a really good idea. Someone tell John Key ... oh wait, he's a banker, isn't he. No chance National will be implementing something like this as part of their step change then is there.

I will not run through the house with a condom wrapper in my mouth, especially when my human's grandmother is over.

My human will never let me eat her pet rat, and I am at peace with that.

The Comedy Channel now on cable 10 (don't know about Sky proper, but probably) has The Goodies. Brit comedy I missed repeatedly.

Now showing The Young Ones, which I'm less amused by in general.

In the beginning there was NCSA Mosaic, and Mosaic called itself NCSA_Mosaic/2.0 (Windows 3.1), and Mosaic displayed pictures along with text, and there was much rejoicing.

Yoinked from an issue of Roleplaying Tips Weekly while I was cleaning out (one of) my (many) inbox(s).

This paper extends interplanetary trade theory to an interstellar setting. It is chiefly concerned with the following question: how should interest charges on goods in transit be computed when the goods travel at close to the speed of light? This is a problem because the time taken in transit will appear less to an observer traveling with the goods than to a stationary observer. A solution is derived from economic theory, and two useless but true theorems are proved."

It's a long weekend. I am in fact attempting to take a break. This entails
- not doing my typical half-day-on-a-public-holiday
- rather than making out a chores list just getting to stuff as I feel like it over the next few days. This is likely to include some gardening, the actual chores, finding new hi-res backgrounds for my desktop, tidying the office, playing some compter games, some gaming prep, updating some of my webpages....
- the possibilities lack socialising :( Both my weekend games are off this weekend, and there doesn't seem to be anything relevant on the partylist.I don't want to expend the brainstuffs to provide entertainment for myself at the moment, let alone trying to sort out other people to socialise with.
- I slept in, or more accurately lay in bed for about an hour and a half, and it wasn't good for me.

And because it made me smile...

Between the heat, and three days cycling (yeah, I'm still outta shape) and longer than average workdays I'm having trouble thinking, let alone doing.

And there is so much I should be doing...

I've used all my paying hours for the week so tomorrow is a home day. May be helping my father move furniture.

Mindless internet stuffs:

larping, funny dog, loldogs, lol dog, funny dog pictures
moar cute puppy pictures

Do you have any idea how rare that is, even with all the comic humour I digest on a daily basis?

(for those not familiar with XKCD - are there any of those who read my journal? - hover your mouse over the comic to see what I'm talking about).
