Equality, Discrimination, and Society’s Misunderstandings

Inequality and Stuff

Disclaimer I’m expecting this to be a controversial post that a lot of people will knee-jerk deny and be “triggered” by, but it’s the conclusion I’ve come to after taking in everything I’ve seen, read, heard, and researched in regards to the topics of equality and discrimination. Obviously, these are just my opinions. They in no way reflect the views of or are endorsed by any organisations I am affiliated with. Now, if you’re going to give this post a chance and think properly about what I say in it then I welcome you, but if you’re just going to focus on the negative light this post can undoubtedly be…

Fuckerberg’s Shitheads Strike Again!

Well, fuck. Looks like I haven’t posted on here for longer than I thought. Sorry about that. Anywho, time for a rant! Yay!   So instead of loading the subsequent posts and sticking them onto the page, Facebook​ seem to think it’s a better idea to completely reload the page if you’re away from the News Feed for more than a few minutes. So if you just left the page to read a news article and then come back expecting to be able to continue scrolling down as you had been – fuck you. If you went to get a shower after a quick flick down and then return to continue…

Preventing Terror or Policing Dissent?

A guy I know thought it was ridiculous how I was so against the government demanding backdoors to chat logs of encrypted services like WhatsApp and iMessage, all for the apparent sake of identifying, monitoring, and cracking down on terrorists. One of my points at the time was how, while the government may well use it solely for that at first, they will never abandon that power once they have it, and any number of new laws could be put into action in the future which take advantage of it in ways it was [supposedly] never intended to be used. Honestly, I was saying that kind of thing with the…

The Perfect Valentine’s Day

After a tense morning of watching Roger (my DPD delivery driver) not move or progress from his first delivery on the tracking page map, this gloriousness arrived a little after half 2 yesterday afternoon. It came with a free charger, too, as a pre-order bonus seeing as the consoles don’t come with one any more. Needless to say I was excited to get playing but, alas, I was at work and so decided to settle for letting the data transfer do its thing, ready for some serious Monster Hunting after work. My old 3DS has a 16GB SD card and the 3DS Advance (“new Nintendo 3DS” is a stupid name and I…

Thanks again, Facebook

Thanks, Facebook, I really love how a new video instantly plays as soon as the one I was watching finishes. The increased challenge of liking, commenting on, and sharing content is thoroughly enjoyable and – lets face it – most people probably need as much extra mental stimulation as they can get. </sarcasm> If I was running a Page that posted videos, I’d hate you for this. Sure, my reach might benefit but I’d be surprised if interaction rates didn’t take a hit for it. I’d want my fans to see my content, and then interact with it – not be whisked away to God knows what! Could you even…

Hack Your JavaScript Code in Chrome!

Two things to cover quickly in this one. Firstly, I made a darker theme for Dev Tools. By “made” I mean I cobbled together a bunch of stuff other people already did, and used someone else’s instructions to port it to the format Chrome requires it to be in. Hurray for me! Check the repo for a screenshot – or look at the image at the bottom of this post – and if you’re happy with that theme you can grab it from the Chrome Web Store to get updates and stuff automatically. If you want to tweak or replace the colours you’ll need to either clone the repo or grab…

The Evil of Science

Science vs. Scientists

Where Christianity says to hate the sin rather than the sinner, with science the burden of responsibility is reversed. It’s all down to how we chose to implement it.

Tiny House!

This is great. Unlike most tiny houses, this doesn’t look like a glorified caravan or American trailer home! As far as physical space goes, this is pretty much perfect for me. So long as there’s water, electric and decent Internet I could live very happily in something like this.

The next season of Big Brother will feature all citizens of Britain

Absolute Wanker

I am immensely displeased right now. If the Conservatives aren’t elected until the day humanity goes extinct, it will still be too soon. His Majesty, our Supreme Overlord David Cameron, is taking an event that has spawned unity across Western nations for the ideals of freedom of speech and opinion, and is twisting it into an excuse to monitor and spy on us. This is absolutely disgusting. 1984 might have been a long time ago, but it’s looking closer than ever right now.
