England, one of the big homes of the Enlightenment, and the birth place of Stephen Hawking, Newton, Bertrand Russell, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Thomas Malthus, is full of idiots. I lament the idiocy of my home country. Did you know, for example, that a school in Essex is banning triangle shaped flapjacks because they are too much like knives? Also, were you aware that the government wants to combat low nursing standards in hospitals by implementing “compassion training” (instead of competency training or discipline). To explain that to you, I invite a guest speaker, the Heedless Flip Flop.
(And by “invite”, I mean here is a good friend of mine’s blog with funny stuff in it, enjoy.)
