POOH CORNER - Wee Directive?

NASA delays test of space station urine recycler

And here's me thinking it was in the Carling 'brewery'.

CAMPAIGN - Action Earth

I'm often not big on campaigns, but this one looks OK:

A bit of sponsorship in there, but that's fine. Plus some nice funding for nifty local activities.

PR COVERAGE - And it's Rubbish... thankfully

They do say it's the awards from your peers that mean the most.


I'll go along with that:)

Stupid is as Stupid does

I am going to see the Age of Stupid.

I am going to do so because I have heard about it, it sounds interesting, it may be worth a gander and I'll learn something.

The producers must be thrilled.

However, they might not be so pleased that I am going with an eyebrow now cranked, and not in a good way. And it's their fault.

The rage of stupid

This bit, especially, did not help: the site's managers are taking no chances. Their comment box carries a legend that somewhat undermines this apparently glowing feedback. It reads: "Any comments from climate deniers/sceptics will be deleted."..the site's managers are taking no chances. "

That smacks of a slight lack of confidence from the off, and also suggests that balance may not be uppermost. Which means the science I see may not be the science there is.

You know, I may wait for a few more reviews where all 'sides' are allowed to comment free of censorship/agenda/narrative enhancing, etc, and then decide whether I'll go.

Now, was/is that the intention?
