Civilization is the limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities.


Ezra lures a young girl through a doorway. Royal Botanical Gardens, Hobart. March 2012.

The Internet is a wonderful place filled with the rich and varied treasures of the world holds (as well as innumerable straw men.) The following are some things that I've had a look at in the last week. I call this: a Compendium of Click-throughs for Monday Morning...

  • Follow some of the most famous trips in history

  • Scott's Antarctic diet: Stewed penguin and champagne...

  • Why politicians should rethink their appeals to people's fear

  • Ahhh, the good old days: when we gave opium to newborns and sold heroin over the counter...

  • Making sense of Visegrad...

  • Guy comes out of closet on Facebook to friends who are entirely too geeky to care...

  • The Ottomans were a rather hardcore bunch...

  • America. "From Nuremberg on, no country has invested more in the development of international jurisdiction for atrocity crimes. And no country has worked harder to make sure that the law it seeks for others does not apply to itself"...
