I'm not sure why we don't have a topic on this; this may be a little old now (happened on Wed) but still, it's pretty shocking.

Two men run over an off-duty soldier in the street and proceed to stab him to death. Some sources claim he was beheaded but other sources don't make any mention of it, so it's doubtful.

Apparently they said 'Allahu Akbar' a lot. Both British, of Nigerian descent.

They remained at the scene until the police arrived, asking members of the public to photograph and film them in the meantime:

Scary stuff.

As a student, I have several Facebook friends who are students. Which means I have Facebook friends who are part of the 'Loony Left' (separate from actually left-wing people), super-feminists, and people who generally want literally nobody to ever be offended by anything ever.

Let's get a couple of things straight. I'm left-wing. I believe in equal rights for all. Of course I do. But some of the things that are posted on my Facebook scare me. I sound like a bigoted BNP member when I say this, but seriously, I'm getting fed up with this rising tide of the Thought Police.

Here's some that were posted on my Facebook wall this morning:
Yes, it makes you look a bit like a douche, but if I decided tomorrow that I wanted to wear a bindi I will. I won't be stopped by 'being white'. I'm white but it doesn't mean I'm in cahoots with the slave traders.

And whining that this guy has gone to jail:

ITT either post similar things that make you die a bit inside.

Or maybe I'm totally wrong? Tell me why.

The Lounge / Somebody please explain this.

I assume some of you are already familiar with this album, but I adore it. As an atheist it fills me with wonder. Also try it when drunk/stoned. It's up for download, pay what you like.

The Lounge / Eddy Baby Raises Money
« on: December 07, 2011, 04:23:54 AM »
Dear beloved FES,

My name is Eddy Baby, and in April of next year I will be hitchhiking from Sheffield, South Yorkshire (aka where I live) to Sofia in Bulgaria.

Here's a map.

This is all in the name of raising money for charity, and I would be very grateful for any and everybody's help.

Donate here!

If you do it I will love you forever and maybe even take photos at interesting places in Europe with a sign with your name on it.

Sup. I'm writing some Sega Megadrive-style music called Space Odin. But I've written a certain amount for it and just can't think of anything else. Anyone here that does computer music wanna have a listen and see what they can do with it?

The Lounge / Kate Rusby, British Folk Artist - A Flat Earther?
« on: June 06, 2011, 08:00:18 AM »
I was just listening to Kate Rusby's song 'Moon Shadow'

"Moon shadow,
He's there but barely visible,
Moon shadow,
When I'm scared and fairly miserable,
A watch for me he'll keep,
So I might fall asleep."

Kate Rusby's songs are almost entirely arrangements of traditional tunes.
 This song is clearly an ode to the Moon Shadow, referred to on this forum as the Antimoon, and its (here either personified, or a relic from the traditional song which may have been in Old English, se mōna being masculine)  help to protect the folk from the harmful effects of the moon.
I shall look further into this.

Though the ending is just a touch underwhelming and the black magic element makes this virtually unmarketable in the United States, Krabat is an exceptionally well made film that deserves - and should find - an appreciative audience around the globe.

Tomorrow morning there will be a partial eclipse of the sun. In the UK it will be visible from sunrise (about 8AM) until about 9:30AM.

Don't say you weren't told!

It is the year 3000.
Space is overrun by Space Gauls and Space Barbarians.
Odin returns to purge the universe and return it to order.

This is the name of the videogame that I began writing the soundtrack for today.

Somebody should make this game.

Seriously, anybody here who makes games want to collaborate so we can make funky Sega music?

I for one have no problem with the strange wording the boy used to describe God and Jesus. He definitely was just describing what he saw as opposed to what his parents had told him to say he saw.

I hear lots of people complaining that things like autotune are killing music. But if the end product is pleasant music, does it really matter if the musician is talentless? What's your opinion?

Please write a book full of intelligent observations about the universe and our existence, all rendered in an almost poetic form. Like Stephen Fry presenting Horizon using Terry Wogan's voice.

In a moment of madness, I bought a leather-bound book from a festival.

There it is.
It looked all epic and leathery, I just had to buy it and write stuff in it with a quill. But I have nothing to write.

Would anybody be up for writing a collaborative story in it? As in, do 5-10 pages or so, and then post it off to somebody else? How does that sound?

Next Friday, I'm going to Off The Tracks, my favourite music festival in the world. On Monday I'm going to Bulgaria. On Friday I'm going to Romania. The next Saturday I'm moving into my flat at uni.

All this is gonna be rad.

There has been a lot of coverage recently of Climate Change. We are releasing to much Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere. My solution is thus: speak less, use less energy, drive to the shops for food less.

I propose:
  • A shortening of all words where the removal of a syllable creates a unique word, eg. Phenomenon could be shortened to phenom, and still be a uniquie word.
  • The abolition of the verb 'to be', except to distinguish nouns that sound the same as the plural, ie sheep etc.
  • The abolition of the word 'the', apart from to distinguish between general plurals and a specific group, eg 'the birds dead' instead of 'birds dead', which sounds like all birds dead.


Philosophy, Religion & Society / What Do You Eat? Dirt?
« on: June 08, 2010, 03:36:24 PM »
I'm starting this thread because it's an interesting point raised by Robo in 'A Call to the citizens of England!'

I've recently been toying with the idea of becoming a vegetarian, because I fail to see the difference between a chicken that's got its legs bound and its feet and head cut off and a person that's got its legs bound and its feet and head cut off.

But then, if you eat, say, Quorn, what about all the little baby quorns and stuff, and the insects that are killed during such farming?

Where is the line, and why?
