This is meaningl...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

What you have said after the event is a two faced insult to what I thought was a genuine friend doing a friend a favour. Why agree to do it f...

Re: In defense of colonism

I guess what he would say is that firstly a lifetime of anti-colonial ideologically directed social science research could demonstrate that pigs can fly. ... Ah!
