The Best Fool is an April Fool! 28 March, 2007Posted by paralleldivergence in April Fools, Brad & Phil, jokes, Life, My Thoughts, pranks.
I was looking at a calendar the other day and realised April 1st is coming up again.

Swing with Me… Please? 23 March, 2007Posted by paralleldivergence in Brad & Phil, debnam, elections, iemma, Life, My Thoughts, NSW, Politics, voting.
Most democratic nations hold open elections regularly – usually every three or four years. Most democratic nations also only have two major parties vying to form government.

When I went to school, one subject I really enjoyed was Geology – the study of the Earth, the materials of which it is made, the structure of those materials, and the processes acting upon them. I also loved reading comic books and admiring the wonderful artists that produced the amazing pieces of artwork that filled each comic. But never in my wildest dreams did I think that a comic book artist would destroy the foundation of my understanding of the geology of our planet. But that’s exactly what one comic book artist has done.
