Friday links and stuff

I know it’s not Friday for most of you, but it is here in Australia and we’re in front and the rest of you are just catching up.

Saudi Arabia to send troops to Syria?

I have a contact who is ex-military at quite a high level. He participated in quite a few war-games with the Saudis. The thought of them invading their own arsehole sends him into fits of hysterical laughter.

If Britain leaves the EU will implode.

If they stay my head will implode. Britain pays the EU 55 million pounds a day for the privilege of losing control of their own democratic process.

Being offended is a trendy self-absorption of the rich.

I hate everyone equally so pretty hard for me to get offended.

World’s safest man killed at work.

God does have a sense of humor.

Twitter beginning to implode.

Let’s see; your business model is built on people sending lots of messages to each other and after becoming wildly successful you decide to install a “Trust and Safety Council,” to censor some speech that you don’t like. If you own Twitter stock and you don’t intend to sell it I have a Nigerian friend called Moses who would like you to help him transfer some money …

Update: Twitter CEO named as weasel of the week.

The Woodpile Report

It comes out every Tuesday and it should be a go-to for you on your weekly internet travels.

Brainpickings

Same with these guys. I love Brainpickings, (although they aren’t restricted to only Tuesday).

The Federalist is imploding over Trump.

As are the majority of conservative sites and publications. What they are going to  do when he wins the nomination is beyond me, (something which I called last July and all my friends made fun of me – who’s laughing now?) How bonkers has The Federalist gone? They’re now willing to vote Hillary over Trump to “save” conservatism.

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, a sad Bernie Sanders supporter cries that there are people out there who would vote for Trump. If you’ve ever wondered how politicians like Julia Gillard get elected, this is the reason. Have a good weekend!
