Be Prepared || When Maps Flap, and Knots Fray; Just Remember Scout, “At Least You aren’t Gay”

If you haven’t already heard, various Christian groups are out in force about the Boy Scouts of America trying to be decent (finally) and recognise homosexuals as members. Amongst the Pearl Clutchers we have the Baptist Press who write news with a Christian perspective. If by Christian you mean “Raging Homophobes”.

Hags of Lag – Guns don’t Kill People, Videogames Do

The USA loves scapegoating. The lack of technological acumen within the US government makes them prone to scapegoat things that aren’t really the issue. You shouldn’t blame sexting on mobile phones, you should blame it on a culture that encourages the sexualisation of children and teenagers. And US Senator Lamar Alexander should know better than …

Hags of Lag – League of Legends and Bans

If you haven’t been following the drama on League of Legends then there is a little ray of hope about gaming. You see, a company that plays games finally took a stand on it’s players. It named and shamed people responsible for making the game experience worse for others. Now you may wonder, why this …

I Get Mail – Dear Herman

This one’s from someone called Herman Cummings (or someone writing on his behalf) Our public schools have been teaching Atheism, and the Atheists want to keep it that way, using the pretext of “separation of church and state”.

There are some disturbing tendencies among  skeptics/atheists I’d like to bring your attention to  Disturbing? Tendencies? ATTENTION??? What could it be? Well…. Banning people for disagreeing. I’m not talking …

ENT

If you are wondering why I wrote a post on ENT quackery you must know that today is my ENT exam. I am in the vague fugue of knowing that I have studied but still worried about it. It’s a 3 hour paper in 4 hours. AND it’s my last written paper. I have 3 …

Not the Ducks! – ENT Ain’t Nothing to Fuck With

So why does quackery get a free ride? Well IMHO the major problem is that especially in the USA, drug companies are allowed to flog non-OTC (over the counter) medications to customers. Quackery is basically doing the same thing. Now there are two ways to classify quack medicine. 1. It doesn’t work and either does …

Hags of Lag – Power of Anonymous

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=2byfNvzfOHs I don’t agree with it entirely, but I agree with the core message. I would add “Anonymity” is powerful and the personas we create are important. And yes, I have caught myself doing some of the things he mentioned. And it may explain why we aren’t liked even if we produce original content. I …

Hags of Lag – Videogames are not for Girls! Even if they make them!

If you want to read something heart wrenching about the problem facing women in the video game industry then I suggest reading the Boston Globe. It’s sad, the more people who play our games the better. You have better stories the more inclusive they are and the community as a whole improves. It is stupid …
