@garthk Google Maps is too complex. On my screen is the street corner in Bangkok I want to show you. But I can’t Too hard.

@garthk Damn, no Google Street View in Bangkok or I’d show you where.

@cameronreilly I have only read Jared Diamond’s “Guns, Germs and Steel”, but it provides a decent 5000-year perspective of human history.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cameronreilly

@cameronreilly I don’t disagree, but Palestine isn’t noted for peat bogs or spring water. Jared Diamond would doubtless have more to say.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cameronreilly

See, a bit of the Bible even @cameronreilly can agree with! ;) (Alas, nothing in there about single malts, mate.)

@mrdavidbacon I’ve been invited to masonic dinners too, tho I don’t know I’d be a fit for their organisation. Maybe I said “goat” too often.

@websinthe Have I previously mentioned the Dunning-Kruger Effect? ;) http://is.gd/1kZ Too ignorant to even know you’re ignorant.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

@websinthe Yes, the thing is frustrating. But as I’ve said before, politics is a marathon event. ;)
