Journal: Doomsday?

Nostradamus writes:

The blood of the just will make complaint to London,
Burnt by fireballs in twenty-three the sixes;
The antique dame will fall from the high place,
Of the same sect many will be destroyed.


Many sceptics have said, why don't those who read things into Nostradamus ever come out before the event. Well, I will come out before the event.

The blood of the just - Religious figures?
will make complaint to London - Protest?
Burnt by fireballs - Bomb?
Twenty-three the sixes - 6th June 2006 (2006-6-6)
The antique dame - The Queen
fall from the high place - Dies or abdicates
Of the same sect many will be destroyed - Many Londoner's will die or many people protesting will die.

Now to wait, just over a month to see!

Journal: US Government Abuses

Journal by glowworm
http://yro.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=184949&cid=15267728 raises a very valid point in my eyes.

It is great to see that some Americans *do* recognise the issue. It has certainly corrected a misconception of mine that they are all spineless sheep.

Journal: Big Words!

Journal by glowworm
My god! While meta-moderating I came across a post that scared the willies out of me. I have never in my life seen so many big words! (Especially as I only passed year 11 English)

This was one I could not just rely on "is it decent moderation" or "that moderator was on crack". I had to research some of the words... then look at it in context and so on. In the end I decided to look at the posters history and... It's GNAA phhht.

So yes, the offtopic was fair - although I would have given it Troll instead.

Always draw your curves, then plot your reading.
