Catholic church offends and disgusts me (news article response)

Posted on May 6, 2012 at 7:13pm 4 Comments

Hi All,

    I checked the news on news.com.au this morning and found this article. In which the catholic church both offends and disgusts me.

I will start by explaining the latter. It makes the assumption that a woman needs a husband to be complete, and urges young women in Australia to marry quickly or they will miss out. Why, as a man,…

Grid computing

Posted on October 24, 2011 at 10:56pm 0 Comments

The answer is to break the problem down into as many small pieces as possible and to compute them all at the same time! Now the problem for someone with a large problem set is no longer a lack of time to compute their final result, but a lack of…

Political compass

Posted on September 12, 2011 at 8:23pm 10 Comments

Hi all,

My (future) uncle-in-law showed me politicalcompass.org the other day and I thought it would be interesting to compare my place on the compass to that of other atheists. We might even be able to show, once and for all, that atheists really do have different views.

 

I took the test and ended up in the lower left region, somewhere near Ghandi and the Dalai Lama. Apparently this means I would prefer a somewhat economically communistic society with liberal social…
