Daily Bads.

Fifty years ago, when I was a boy, it seemed completely self-evident that the bad old days were over, that torture and massacre, slavery, and the persecution of heretics, were things of the past. Among people who wore top hats, traveled in trains, and took a bath every morning such horrors were simply out of the question. After all, we were living in the twentieth century. A few years later these people who took daily baths and went to church in top hats were committing atrocities on a scale undreamed of by the benighted Africans and Asiatics. In the light of recent history it would be foolish to suppose that this sort of thing cannot happen again. It can and, no doubt, it will.

Sum 41: Mr. Amsterdam


To be anti-car at the beginning of the twenty-first century is generally seen as irrational, unrealistic – yet what could be more irrational than promoting the unnecessary use of motor vehicles when ample evidence exists that already their emissions have done immense damage? A risk is something one can disregard; with luck all will be well. A certain future disaster, as a result of an avoidable present course of action, can only be disregarded by those whose logical faculties are paralysed.

Schwung braucht der Mensch.

Anne Frank


But it is clear that the place is ultimately ruled by ants; in fact it makes the most sense to think of the jungle as a living tissue of ants with minor infestations of trees, birds, and humans.

Neal Stephenson: Cryptonomicon

We are here.

Man, he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day'll cease to be
Greet the last light of the library
