Archive for June, 2010

On the 31st of May 2010 I had the pleasure of reading the most delightfully funny letter to the editor in my local newspaper.  The letter goes as follows;

The Origins of Ethics

Has anyone heard the one about ‘no scripture in schools’, only to be replaced with classes in ‘ethics’?  Whose ethics and on whose instructions?  Bible ethics have been around for ages and have proved to be just what the doctor ordered, but I have my doubts about the government’s morals.

Now I’m faced with a major ethical dilemma here, do I name the writer of the above letter giving her all credit due to such an intellectual masterpiece worthy of harsh scrutiny?  Or do I take the ethical and moral high ground of not naming the person who wrote that before I discuss how moronic they are?

What do I do?  Oh lady, master of ethics.  What  does the bible say I should do?

What doctor ordered this prescription of bible ethics? Where did you get that information?

Bible Ethics?

I think there is a major difference between classroom ethics and government morals as well.  I also think government ethics and morals are considerably different also.  Not that I can be bothered digging around to find the appropriate documentation and such.

Can somebody get this woman a one on one meeting with someone like Richard Dawkins.  Film it, post it everywhere.  Because I’d really love to see that discussion.

Tell me what you think in the comments.

Onto other stuff.

I didn’t do my May wrap up, and it’s nearly the end of June already.  I suck.

I have also began a top secret crochet project.  It’s only really top secret between me and the real world.  The internet is to be trusted keeping my top secret secret.  You can follow me on Twitter and watch as I progress through the gargantuan task I have created.

Here is the project so far.

Share photos on twitter with TwitpicThis was step one.  Designing where the colours would sit in the top secret crocheted blanket of secret.  There are four colours all up and then the white.

The Second step, was to begin making exactly 16 coloured centres of each colour.  Clearly I started with Blue.

Step Three and Four was to crochet around the coloured centre twice, with the white and the the blue again.

Step Five was to crochet the final white bored of each square.  I am only half way through the pile.  But this is what the blue ones look like when complete.  Obviously when the blue stack is complete I will complete the first five steps for each colour.  Then the next step will begin.

I apologise for the horrid quality of the photographs.  I was lazy and used my phone.

Anyway next time I see you I will blog about True Blood and Vampires and Disappointments and things.
