Andrew and I ahve decided that it is important to document the hilariously shambolic state of our lives now so future generations can see the levels of depravity we have today.
I’ll start it, tomorrow. Since that’s the attitude that got me here.
True, because poverty only continued to get worse under Major and it wasn’t until Blair was elected that Labor slowly began to undo decades of Thatcherism damage. By 2004, 21% of Britain’s children were living under poverty, compared to 28% (and rising) under Thatcher and 30%+ under Major.
The number of children who lived in poverty during Thatcher’s reign.
Excuse me everyone, can we please NOT rejoice over the death of another human being? If someone is poor at their job, celebrate when their time at that post comes to an end, not their life.
What gives anyone the right to revoke someone’s worth as a human being simply for them making mistakes?
When their mistakes led to A QUATER OF BRITISH CHILDREN LIVING IN POVERTY then we get to revoke their worth.
Collecting these because no one understands their genius. They make me want to go to school.

this teacher was teaching the class something INACCURATE and the student gets in trouble for correcting him. ” blatant disregard for authority” GOOD FOR HIM. What a travesty that we teach students to blindly accept what authority tells them, and punish those with enough sense to call them on their bullshit!
“In the future, Alex would be better off simply accepting my teachings without resistance”
in the future, Alex would be better off accepting anything anyone with a degree says is fact, thereby allowing himself to be lead on endless paths of ignorance.

do you understand why it trips me out that people can drive 45 minutes and be in aNOTHER COUNTRY?
I drive for 45 minutes and im like
a city over
I live in “Italy” and took a day trip to go to “Austria” and “Germany”
Chums, that’s sweet, and all, but Australia just ate Texas for breakfast.
If you drive for 45 minutes in Australia you aren’t a city over, you’re just 45 minutes away from the city.
If you drive for 45 minutes in Australia you may not even leave the cattle station.
Australia owns every conversation like this you can all leave now heres your participation prize
You’re a cunt

Penguin is releasing new editions of five of books by George Orwell, with covers by designer David Pearson. Perhaps the best of the new designs is Pearson’s simple but brilliant idea for 1984, with the title and author’s name apparently censored with black foiling.
The black bars only obscure the text at a glance, however; they’ll still be visible in the right light. Pearson acknowledges that the design is a bit risky, but it’s a dramatic look, almost as if some government ministry had tried to hide the book from the public.
I’m sure I have two copies lying around but I want another just for this fuck you Penguin.
I’m still angry that Ketut wasn’t Australian of the Year

I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t trash the things you don’t” trend which seems to be plaguing comments sections in negative articles lately, but I wanted to be able to really examine why I don’t like TBBT rather than just slagging it off. My main questions being - Why don’t I like this anymore? Why do I feel uncomfortable watching it? And why do I get so annoyed when I see people sing its praises online? The thing which really sparked this post was seeing a raft of comments on Facebook, below the last round of voting in Television Without Pity’s Tubey Awards, claiming The Big Bang Theory to be “the best comedy on TV”. This made me angry so instead of posting an impulsive comment calling out their bad taste which I’d probably regret later, I decided to really analyse why seeing comments like that made me so mad when previously, although I didn’t really love the show, I’d never considered myself as disliking The Big Bang Theory.
Hell, I even have season one on dvd, it’s sitting right between Battlestar Galactica and Bored To Death in my alphabetised collection.
And here, I think, is where my problem with The Big Bang Theory lies…
