Minus One! »
When I started this blog I was very definite that I wasn’t going to blog about politics or religion. I’d seen too many flame wars, too many blogs overrun by indignant trolls. My blog, I decided, was going to be sweetness and light and avoid incendiary topics.
But then the John Howard regime finally fell and I couldn’t contain myself. And, you know, what? I’ve gotten not a single troll. The discussions generated by my political musings have been thought-provoking, fun, and, most unexpectedly, my traffic is up. Who’d've thunk it? I love youse all!
I now feel free to blog about whatever the hell I want to blog about. If any trolls show up I’ll just nuke ‘em.
That said, I’m facing a whole series of dread evil deadlines over the next month. So my promised posts on how to rewrite1, curing insomnia, my favourite manga, manhwa and graphic novels will prolly all have to wait.
In the meantime I’ll try to keep posting but may not be as substantive as I’d like.
So here, have another quokka:

I don’t know about trolls, but I was fascinated to learn that Australia had a government. When did the UK stop shipping criminals there?

According to wikipedia, “the quokka recycles a small amount of its waste products.” !!!! Does that mean what I think it means?

It means that a quokka’s litter box is much less full and less of a hassle to deal with than a cat’s.
