    World Iranian news agency says the U.S. is secretly run by Nazi space aliens. Really.

    Iran's semi-official news outlets have something of a reputation for taking conspiracy theorism to the next level. They've written on Israel's secret plans to annex Iraq, the conspiracy by Western media to fabricate quotes by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani condemning the Holocaust and the...

    Sci/Tech New meta-analysis checks the correlation between intelligence and faith

    More than 400 years before the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, Greek playwright Euripides wrote in his play Bellerophon, “Doth some one say that there be gods above? There are not; no, there are not. Let no fool, led by the old false fable, thus deceive you.” Euripides was not an atheist and only...

    US News 40% of US workers now earn less that 1968 minimum wage

    Are American workers paid enough? That is a topic that is endlessly debated all across this great land of ours. Unfortunately, what pretty much everyone can agree on is that American workers are not making as much as they used to after you account for inflation. Back in 1968, the minimum wage in...

    Sweden, a recycling-happy land where a quarter of a million homes are powered by the incineration of waste, is facing a unique dilemma: The nation has run out of much-needed fuel. Sweden, birthplace of the Smörgåsbord, Eric Northman, and the world’s preferred solar-powered purveyor of...

    If we were rich

    Say, if we were rich, where would you live? I think I’d move down south, and build myself a shed. I think I’d get out of school, and get out in the world, Reading things in books can never make me learn. If I were to move, would you come with? I’ve tried a very long time; this life’s not for...

    Current bugs (xenforo)

    since there's been a transition to xenforo, I thought it might be a good idea to report all the bugs we come across right here, to make life easier for whoever is going to fix them. only one I've noticed so far is that I only have 0 minutes to edit my posts. which is, needless to say, too little.

    Short piece

    I haven't written anything in months. Except for just now that is. I appreciate any critisism, even though I know I have not been too generous with it myself for a while. Anyway. Why do I have to keep both my hands on the wheel? I’m drifting through gridlock with ease as it is. I hear...

    The raft

    Drifting aimlessly Across this deep blue sea No land in sight But do not fret The time will come And this tide will turn The water gushing Remember life without it? This storm won’t settle But don’t feel frightened You see This raft is a mere vessel for your mind

    Kafka on the shore

    Anyone read it? I head it was good so I picked it up, but found myself utterly confused. Did anyone manage to grasp some sense from it? I see some things that might bind it together, Nakata's teacher might very well have been the wife of one of the soldiers in the forest, and her dream might...

    Naïve is very straight forward and the most honest attempt to actually 'understand myself' for the last years (through poetry). I find it much harder to find the right words when they mean so much to you, but I gave it an attempt. I like to distance my texts from myself and delude myself that I...

    Some girls seem to have a tendency to set their feet Into one of the nests where vipers meet. There never were any predecessors to tell, Where they did wandered in mistake as well. Tread lightly child, the path you walk is dangerous indeed, I’ve seen too many girls like you succumb theirselves...

    Lyrics: first draft

    Her heart is like a battle field, and the skies are tumbling down. As her last soldier draws his dying breath, She's losing all sense to the world outside. Thirty-seven thousand miles to fall; She's sad to say she's seen them all. "Devil may care, but I don't mind, just drag me down...

    What's your opinions about multiculturalism? In Europe we have a lot of debates over this. But I can only speak for how it is in Sweden. The only political in party in Sweden which is against it states that we in Sweden have a common culture: we work hard, without bragging about it. We are...
