Silver Bullet?

December 30, 2009

I just watched this video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zORv8wwiadQ

Not a very impressive argument, even if you ignore that neither his columns or rows are actually binary conditions (he admits this). He doesn’t point out that the economic costs still occur in the bottom/left box while the climate costs are only reduced marginally.  Bjorn Lomborg has covered this.

Flippin’ Internet

December 28, 2009

My internet connection is very unreliable at the moment, hanging up when trying to get IP. Strangely I have an XBOX 360 that connects through the same hub without any trouble.

Merry Christmas

First Post!

New blog started on Christmas day after drinking half a bottle of red wine.  Drunk-blogging for teh win!

The name “sinister lurker” is a name I use in forums that I read but don’t intend to actually post in. This makes it completely inappropriate for a blog but when did that ever stop anything?

Interests that I might post about (in no particular order): computer games, politics, military machinery, job hunting, science, lolcats, alcohol, books, anything else that catches my interest.

That’s enough for now…
