So the 0400 start is catching up with me big time. Looks like an early night for me, then an early start tomorrow to make a podcast.

Sanctuary, with a lockable door and a minibar.

Writers of articles that read like they think the internet is a new thing that no-one has thought about before.

God I’m sure H G Wells warned us about this.

Reggae: The Eighth Plague.

No amount of expensive hair product will hide the fact that you’re balding at an alarming rate.

via Plume for Android

Still haven’t killed any of them, despite the reggae.

OH: “Why do people have gay hairstyles?”

via Plume for Android

Oh dear. Dull literalism is dull.

Joy Division was just the greatest influence on my life! instagr.am/p/P6GFYPiFth/

I went to art school, did you? instagr.am/p/P6F4-fiFtY/

OH: “It’s much better now the opiates have started working.”

Earth to Wikiliebers: International diplomacy doesn’t happen at Twitterspeed, and who are you anyway?

via Plume for Android

I wouldn’t go as far as to say I want to kill all of these people.

The two tall, fair-haired German women are eating their large carrots wistfully.

They don’t keep clear, but then no information is available either instagr.am/p/P5trXtiFqe/

Very very very very fucking stabby.

@onekind Interesting points, but it’s now Sunday lunchtime and this is too much like work now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

@onekind “Teen birthday party runs riot, 39 arrested”. That looks like a headline to me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

@onekind When Thing Y has existed forever, Thing Y with Added Internet shouldn’t be a news angle. Not in 2012. It was just a violent party.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

@onekind In other words, it’s people copying something they saw in a movie. “Facebook” in the headline is misrepresentative clickbait.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

@onekind I’m not against language change. I think the Project X link (deliberately destructive gatecrashers) is the story, not Facebook.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

@onekind Actually, “flash mob” has a good heritage here, or at least it did before wankers took over the term for planned events.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

@onekind It’s just a party. There have always been “everyone is invited” parties that got out of hand. It’s not a new phenomenon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onekind

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: A Facebook party is no S Club party. [No, it’s not. Not even close. Disappoint.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SBSNews @swearyanthony SO IT’S A DUTCH BICYCLE-FLIPPING PARTY!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SBSNews

RT @swearyanthony: I liked that some news reports specified the rioters “threw bicycles”. Ah, the dutch…. /cc @SBSNews

via Janetter for Mac

@SBSNews When illegal raves were organised a decade and more ago, did you characterise them as “SMS parties”? I suspect not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SBSNews

@SBSNews “Facebook party”? WTF? Do you call it a “Post Office party” if the invitations were sent through the mail?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SBSNews

I see that some people are discovering physics today. Well done.

via Janetter for Mac

I need a Bloody Mary.

Sun plan, reviewed: Blog done; week ahead planned (sufficiently); lunch, in theory; “Patch Monday” podcast production fore and aft.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile Thank you. I got some compliments after that Consilium panel for breaking through the earnestness of it all.

@lehimesa Questioning one claim doesn’t mean I agree with every fucked-up view you want to imagine I hold. This really is bullshit now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa Oh that’s outrageously disingenous. I questioned one specific claim, now you’re calling me a defender of kiddie-starving. Bah.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa So before the conversation can move any further, you’ll need to go back to your opening move and back up your claim. Simple.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa What’s happening here is simple. You began by making a claim, I asked for evidence, and you’ve avoided doing so. I call bullshit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa You can cure my “ignorance” by pointing to ONE source for your claim. That you turn to personal attacks tells me you can’t, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa Which question? Your vague one about beef? Yes. I do. But you STILL haven’t justified your claim. Stick to the topic you raised.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@treespiepurr @jameshultgren I’m usually awake between 0500 and 0600, so no particular reason today.

via Janetter for Mac

@lehimesa It’s your hand-waving of “many many science sources” that’s lazy. Just point to ONE. As I say, I call bullshit on your claim.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa How very dare you! I just looked up IPCC reports and got my information. You’re making outrageous clams and point to nothing!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa Since you’re wanting me to believe this ludicrous claim of cows vs cars, I think it’s up to you to provide the evidence.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa I did “look ‘em up”, BTW, and the claim seems to be yet more PETA wank. Reputable sources put agriculture under 10% of emissions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@lehimesa I was after a “source”, as in science, not more unsourced factoids. Flipping the subject to starving children is a diversion.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis foulé aux pieds par ma Dominatrice de l’Insomnie, mais soulevé par la lumière du soleil. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Columbu97694624 Possibly you’re confusing the words “demographics” and “stereotypes”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Columbu97694624

itsthom a social network called humblr where you’re only allowed to post what you perceive as your shortcomings.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 7:23 AM, Sep 23rd, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

@lehimesa While this kills the fun intent of my comment, is there ANY reputable source for that factoid? ‘Cos I call bullshit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lehimesa

If God had intended us to be vegetarian then why did He invent steak knives?

via Janetter for Mac

Sun plan, draft: Plan week ahead, ‘cos it’s very crowded; write two blog posts; produce “Patch Monday” podcast; lunch, potentially.

via Janetter for Mac

Since I’m (goddam bloody well) awake, I might as well plod through some planning and other stuff. Still quite disgruntled though.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. This is not an hour at which I wish to be awake. Disgruntled. Quite disgruntled.
