Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts
~Scotland is still a part of the Union: I've watched some really good videos talking about the relationship between Scotland and the rest of the Union, and I've watched Braveheart (That is a joke). It looks like the referendum failed with 55% against Scotland's independence. Perhaps someone can fill me in on the whole Scotland/UK thing. What is interesting is how much coverage this thing has gotten here in the states (IE a lot).
~Iran “Happy Group: Do you remember that group that made the Happy video from Iran? Do you remember that they got arrested. Well, six of them were given a six month sentence...and 91 lashes. However, the sentences were suspended it seems. These people can't do anything to piss off the government for the next three years. By the way, check out Iran Wire for an interesting view from that side of things.

~Gamer Gate: Who knew Gamergate was actually a real term for ants? And, it has nothing to do with battle between gamers and game writers. Basically, a female worker ant can change and start reproducing like a queen ant. I love this story. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle. I also like that Wiki has to have a message pointing people to the OTHER gamergate instead of the ant one. Somewhere, someone is trying to do research and discovering a wiki page about ants. “I had no idea this was all about ants.” Can we teach ants how to play video games?
