The Buntzen Bleeder, Oh no I forgot my camera, Beware the Orc

It was a sunny green day; we decided to go out to Buntzen Lake for a hike. We arrived around 2:00 and were in high spirits. The plan was to hike in to see the sites and start hiking back by 7:00, to be at the car for 8:30-ish, and to beat the gate closure at 9:00. We parked the car and started the hike.

Internet Treasures: Banned, Or Otherwise Dubious, Testaments to Unlikely Empires

There's a lot to read on the internets, but, if you're like me, it's hard to always find something good.

There's only so much My Little Pony slash fiction one can read before a quiet sadness seeps into your day.

So here I present to you some of my favourite books of the internet. Some of them are banned, but all of them contain lessons about the construction of unlikely empires.

Kingdom of Loathing Shut Down

The administrators of the successful multiplayer online game Kingdom of Loathing have been forced to call it quits due to rising bandwidth and administration costs and, a minor but contributing factor, pressure from American neo-prohibitionist organizations.

George W. Bush lied to lead America to war and, in the process, is making a lot of money for his network.

Most people don't know how far the Bush tradition of working in government, while having arms industry interests, goes.
