  1. Oh First Amendment, it’s been more than a week and I haven’t paid any attention to you! Come here and let me give you a thousand sweet kisses of lurve. <3 Freedom of speech is the one thing the US actually gets REALLY right.

  2. I’m happy, that as a PhD student, I’m not paying any council tax here so I’m not directly funding for the inquiry the council has announced. Well, this is Cardiff, Wales, and it is very religious. I think I mentioned this before, but I once even saw a bunch of kids “Christian-LARPing” on Queen Street, all about how Jesus slays the demon with his level 10 sword of justice or something. We have loads of churches, also of strange cults such as the Spiritualists, Christian Science *cough*, and the healing church, and they’re pretty main stream here. So it comes as no surprise that they immediately bend over backwards for a bunch of people who take their SciFi RPGing way to far.

    By the way, I saw a Darlek at the A&E the other day… no film crew or anything. Just a Darlek.

Everybody loves a church that litigates over casual twitter mentions!”
