Divided Kingdom – the Referendum

I have never felt less British; those last few strings emotively tying me to the term United Kingdom have been cut with this referendum.

Windows 10 – Upgrading an old laptop

My first experience with Windows 10… or not as the case may be, given the upgrade failed with a 0xC000000F error!

Ashers and Bad Advice

I was going to do a longer post about the cake thing but I think for now I’ll summarise with a few choice things I’ve observed today. I never held any particular ill will towards the Ashers owners but strongly disagreed with their position. Today, looking over the whole thing, I was stuck by a […]

LGB&T lives are not a fashion show

I don’t think I’ve seen a greater misunderstanding of their own community in recent times than the story of how gay fashion designer icons Dolce and Gabbana have decided that the only valid families are traditional ones with a mother and father.

‘Right to be Forgotten’ EU ruling

Is the EU ruling on the ‘Right to be Forgotten’ a good ruling that safeguards our data privacy, or draconian censorship that hobbles search providers?

Solution to the Flag Protests in NI

Change the Union Flag to one of these, and the flag protests will be over instantly; not even the die-hards would want these flying from their buildings!

On Reparative Therapy

Bob is a troubled stickman. See, ever since his teenage years, he’s really hated his eyes. So much so, he wants them gone, but just can’t manage to bring himself to do it on his own. He finally decides he will go to a doctor, surely a doctor will help him? After all, it’s his body and he is free to do it, so surely someone else should be free to help him, right?

I like snow!

It’s time for snow! Yeah, seems to have snuck in but large parts of the UK are looking white tomorrow, in particular for Belfast!

Met Office: Northern Ireland: severe weather warnings

Yay 🙂 I hope it lies – snow photography seems fun, and at least the “possibility of severe disruption, particularly to transport and to power supplies” shouldn’t affect me as I can work from home given power and internet!

Do take care, however, if you’re out on the roads!

Children in gay adoptions at no disadvantage

Children in gay adoptions at no disadvantage – Health News – Health & Families – The Independent.

Not surprising, really. But then, don’t let the research get in the way of your bigotry! Especially people like commenter grey_rage, who is the greatest colossal fucktard of the week with this comment:

Bigots like me see the catholic church full of gays interfering with children, they see gay ministers and the well placed visiting childrens homes to access vulnerable young boys to gratify their own perverted desires. Bigots like me also remember the likes of peter tachel out side schools giving out leadlets. I remember him trying to get the age of concent reduced or abolished and speaking about sex with nine year olds. Perhaps those are just a couple of reasons we bigots feel the way we do.

Congrats, moron.

Northern Ireland and Flags – Past In Flames

Past in Flames is a Magic the Gathering card. A pretty awesome one. Really, I like the name; it conjures up all sorts of images in my head, fiery spells and igniting thoughts.

Right now, the other image that comes to my mind is; Northern Ireland is the past in flames. People, so enraged by a past, by ancestors that don’t matter, that they burn the present.
