The blank grey is a tad unnerving 🙂

It is, isn’t it?

Hm. That probably would’ve save smaller as a .gif, come to think of it. They love areas of monochrome.

Unnerving. Slightly intimidating. Like a blank canvas – waiting to be touched by the Muse.

It’s a pity we minions cannot fill a visual space here like we can fill a Weekend Weasel Post with comments.

That would be interesting: a guest graffitti function, and play area.

Who is sandmonkey? OBL? I thought that greasy rectum was dead a long time ago. Crap.

Hey, you’re right, bean. I figured he would be, eventually. It’s why I didn’t biff the link, just struck it through.

In the sidebar, McGoo…Rantings of a Sandmonkey. Very interesting Egyptian blogger.

Duh…well don’t I feel like an ass. But at least its a familiar feeling. I hate those unfamiliar ones.

Don’t feel familiar McGoo. Considering the return of the greasy rectum, I should have been more clear with my statement after rifling through weasel’s sidebars.

Thx, PnB.

Rifling thru Weas’ stash is fun – yes? The Stoat has neat stuff.

Today, is homework day again. I have to post a paper by midnight and I am trying to find anything to distract me. This week’s paper is on The Characteristics of Firms Making Voluntary Accounting Changes. blah, blah, blah….

Is that weasel asleep or is it – oh god – dead?

Well, the original it was modeled on was pretty seriously dead. Several of its important internal components were external. I high proportion of the weasel photos you find online are of deceased weasels, on account of they’re quick little buggers otherwise.

But, hey, check out this excellent article on gun control from, of all people the Times. I would say there’s hope yet, but I’m pretty sure there’s not, really.

Weasel – I love the article about gun control, but I refuse to believe it was printed in the Times!

I don’t think I’ve seen that many realistic statements about firearms and crime strung together in a MSM article since I can’t remember when.

But we know the situation in GB is getting out of hand. Their gun crime is worse than ours now, both because their has significantly increased and because ours has significantly decreased. But an even worse crime is that I can’t type for diddly shit this morning. Argh.

I actually quite like the Times; on the rare occasions I read it, it seems sort of – sort of – center-Right-leaning in it’s political outlook. Maybe that’s just because the articels I read from it – online of course – are linked from places like Hot Air, Little Green Footballs et al. Still, it doesn’t do a lot to offset the media which lean the other way – in most cases very heavily – like the BBC, the Independent, the Guardian and so on.
Any news on the gun issue is good news as far as i’m concerned. Especially in today’s context.

*articles, gah.

You can cherrypick some great articles out of The Scotsman, too.

But the Telegraph has been steadily sliding downhill, IMO. Used to be my favorite newspaper (okay, okay…mostly the web version. I’ve never been a paper reader). Then it looks like they decided they wanted to suck up to a younger audience, so it swung toward Style and away from News and Editorial. Now they’re so far up Cameron’s ass you can smell his aftershave.

I have a visceral dislike of David Cameron. He makes me do that bristle-all-over thing that Blair used to evoke.

I think that’s basically because Cameron sat down, not long ago, and said to himself: Golly, Tony’s been in power for nearly ten years now – if I want to make it, then I should just emulate him. And like New Labour brought the majority of the party kicking and screaming towards the centre, the Tories under Cameron’s stewardship will slide centrewise too.
TB did a great job of acting as a world statesman, but his domestic policies are going leave their mark for some time to come. The Tories, at least in the shadow front bench only have a handful of small-c conservatives in the form on Hague, Letwin and Fox, the rest being – to my half-assed assessment at least – a bunch of Enviro-weenies, knee-jerkists and trend-sniffers.
So in summation: there is no opposition, there is just a slightly different rendition of what exists already.

Well, there’s the hopeless bluehairs in the UKIP and the racist socialists (or the socialist racists) in the BNP. Ugh. It’s not a very encouraging political landscape, is it?

I used to like Hague, even though he does look remarkably like a big fetus. He did a great job at question time (which is broadcast in the US on C-SPAN, believe it or don’t). Now I gather he’s going along with the Cameron agenda, which is disappointing.

You don’t have enough old dudes in politics. That’s your problem. All these ignorant, yapping puppies running around pretending to be grownups…feh! “Look! I’m shaving just like Daddy!”

Yeah, looks like. Churchill looked like a giant, obese fat-cigar-smoking baby though, and it never seemed to do him any harm. Why worry about not being able to see your penis when the Nazis are trying to annihilate your country?
You don’t need to tell me about C-Span. It and NASA TV are literally the only TV I watch these days, and I’m thinking about dropping C-Span since the amount of callers phoning in to Washington journal harping on about ‘Ron Paul!’ or ‘Oh my god, the Jewish lobbies!’ is all getting rather tedious. Also, you’ll notice that on their main page, they’ve got dkos under the list of blogs…nuff said.
But yeah, who to vote for…it’s a toughy alright.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
