Richard Dawkins

Now listening to The Sense of Style, by that consummate English stylist Steven Pinker. Among much that is wonderfully quotable, I take special delight in this: “ . . . postmodernism, which rejects the possibility that any word can ever refer to anything . . .” @sapinker
.@jimalkhalili’s literary craftsmanship is that of a seasoned novelist – not what we ordinarily expect of a theoretical physicist. The science is impeccable & mind-expanding, the story a near-unbearably pacy thriller, the characters believably likeable. A treat to read.

I’ll be in Brighton for this conference:-
Sad to learn of the death of Monty Python's Terry Jones. I didn’t know him especially well, which made me all the more touched when he made a wonderfully witty, impromptu speech for me, at the Vice Chancellor’s dinner to celebrate my retirement in 2008.

I’m listening to the audio version of Sunfall, @jimalkhalili’s debut novel. It’s excellent, exactly how good science fiction should be: gripping story, beautifully told, while at the same time being scientifically well-informed.

Best thing Harold Wilson did was refuse US urging to join the war. Aus & NZ not so fortunate Glad Saigon museum of war paid due respect to the many Americans who opposed the war Vietnam war highlighted iniquity of compulsory draft of men regardless of their own convictions
Arrived in bustling, prosperous Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City). US prolonged the war till way after the stupid futility became obvious, in order that “Our boys shall not have died in vain.” So a whole lot more died. And more again. And they all, literally all, died in vain.

Dear typical hotelier Well done making real effort to please. 2 friendly economical suggestions from seasoned traveller: 1. Most guests are with you for only 1 night, no time to master fancy dimmer switches. 2. What’s the point of piling cushions on the bed? Nobody sits on them
Admittedly this won’t make much difference in Ireland itself. But the fact that a civilised country like Ireland had a blasphemy law was used to justify such laws in barbarian countries like Pakistan where blasphemy is punishable by death
Welcome news from Ireland. Congratulations to Michael Nugent and Atheist Ireland on the culmination of a successful campaign.…
I’ve only just discovered Joseph Calleja and I think he might even be my favourite tenor. Paul Robeson is by far my favourite bass.
To those who can’t tell the difference between “some” and “all,” when I referred to “insular Americans” I of course didn’t mean all Americans are insular. Obviously I meant only the handful of Americans who complained that I used the word “overtake” when they preferred “pass.”
To those who say, “Do it if you like but why make it compulsory?” I was careful to point out that headlights are for being seen. Can I be sure it’s safe to overtake (insular Americans read “pass”)? Only if I can be SURE there’s nobody out there with his lights off.
Increasingly addicted to audio books, I’ve heard some good readers but @stephenfry is the audio king. I’ve just listened to his anthology, Paperweight. Best item is his wonderful Sherlock Holmes story, right up to Conan Doyle’s standard and with a sublime sting in the tail.
Headlights are for being seen as well as for seeing. Driving with dipped headlights by day makes it easier to know when it’s safe to overtake. Many UK drivers already do it. Should be made law as in many European countries. Traffic flow & safety would both improve.

These secular stirrings are driven mainly by repugnance at the evils done in Islam’s name, rather than by clear-headed understanding that God doesn’t actually exist. But we can’t have everything, and ANY trend towards deserting Islam is hugely welcome
Yes OF COURSE I can switch to global. That’s not the point. The point is that this is a trivial eg of NON-trivial technique whereby campaigners tailored propaganda to INDIVIDUALS & swung 2016 election. See Democracy Hacked by Martin Moore.

Wanting US news, I logged into CNN. Lead story about UK. Used VPN to pretend I was in US. CNN’s lead changed to US story. Switched VPN back to UK. CNN’s lead now back to UK story. Please, news media, show me what you’re showing everyone else, not what you THINK I want to see.
USA has many of the most talented & educated people in the world (eg more Nobels than any other nation). To choose a president, you’d think they’d devise a system that located one of the very best of their 300 million. The Electoral College chose this:
If you have any evangelical Christian friends (I don’t), please send this to them:
The Darwinian survival value of zebra stripes has long been a puzzle. Hungarian research (referenced in the linked article) supports the theory that stripes are unattractive to dangerous biting insects. Now new research applies the theory to humans:

Y O Y don’t we just say what we mean, out loud?…
When was the Norman Conquest? Ten-sixty-six, of course. Nobody says “One thousand and sixty-six.” So why are people still talking about “Two thousand and nineteen” etc? What’s wrong with “Twenty-nineteen”? Resolution for the New Year: call it “Twenty-twenty.”
Thanks for constructive suggestions and good advice. I’ve now packaged the two films for digitizing. No more suggestions needed. I’m excited to see them. Almost like a time machine. Will my sister & I see our parents when & where they were young? Alas no sound, I presume.
Clearing out mother’s house, we’ve found two movies dated 1942. Kodak Super-X, width film 8 mm, frame 4.5 mm, spool 73 mm diam. Can’t see detail, but baby right age to be me. Any idea where we could find projector? Constructive suggestions only please & gratefully received
Evangelical Christians constitute an important segment of Trump’s well-named “base.” The heirs of Billy Graham constitute an important influence among evangelical Christians. How much longer will Christian Right voters continue to support Trump?
2019 not all bad. Good news doesn’t hit headlines Several endangered sp. popns. grew Women’s rights improved, even in Islamocracies Many countries promised drastic carbon reductions US coal companies went bankrupt Fewer deaths from war, murder & terrorism
