Henry's Easter Penguin. Home, Geilston Bay. March 2013.
As you know, the Internet is a wonderful place filled with the rich and varied treasures of the world holds (and RSS feeds.) 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...
- The question of revolutionary violence was one of the most fateful of the 20th century. Many got it wrong. Camus got it right.
- Surf Lifesaving Australia's Beachsafe website is hands down the best guide to beaches that you'll find.
- Gender differences: more fictions than fact?
- Brainy Sports Supplements or Voodoo Pseudo-science?
- Penis size may be driven by women (oh, and it matters).
- How might your choice of browser affect your job prospects?
- A Beginner’s Guide to Immortality.
- Quite a measured piece by Russell Brand here, probably my favourite of the Margaret Thatcher articles over the past week. I particularly liked this bit: "All of us that grew up under Thatcher were taught that it is good to be selfish, that other people's pain is not your problem, that pain is in fact a weakness and suffering is deserved and shameful. Perhaps there is resentment because the clemency and respect that are being mawkishly displayed now by some and haughtily demanded of the rest of us at the impending, solemn funeral are values that her government and policies sought to annihilate.
