Hello again iiwiiers
Boy am I sick of hearing about the thing that's going to look for planets
Image via Wikipediathat might have life on them. I've seen heaps of stories on it now. I may have even read one. It's not going very far, that's the strange thing. Hey space thing, if you want to see if there's life somewhere else, go a bit nearer to somewhere else! It's not rocket science! You know what I mean. It's going to spend a few years doing it and then that's that, if it doesn't look like there's much it's just going to accept it. It almost sounds like it doesn't want to find anything, doesn't it? "Ooh, I'm going to turn toward France and stare really hard, and if I can't see it after five seconds it's not there!" You may be very cross now, thinking of the facts and how little relation they bear to what I'm saying. Oh, you poor naive child. Haven't you ever been hoodwinked by facts in the past? I know what the facts are, I've read a news. But we seekers after truth can't let quest for the truth get muddied by the facts. I'm sure what they're doing is great. But I'm right really. I must be, or I wouldn't be saying it.
Andrew Marr has been warning us about the dangers of worshipping Charles Darwin. Eh? Who does that? Who is even remotely in danger of doing that? People who t

I think this is just Andrew Marr's confused lapsed Christian baggage talking here. He's obviously not being a sneaky believer with his warning, but it's a pretty stupid thing to worry about. Perhaps the fact of what he used to belief in is a source of some distress to him, and he worries that people might repeat the folly and go too far the other way. It's not clear whether he believes in God or not, I suspect that he does but is being a little coy about it, but perhaps that's understandable as it is not relevant to his bizarre message - it seems clear that he doesn't believe in anything incompatible with Darwin's work. When he was young there was a lot of programmes on the telly on a Sunday to do with Jesus and all that, and Andrew Marr worshipped him. So perhaps he thinks when there's several television programmes about someone on, and there's a lot of stuff in the papers, and books coming out, that means that they're being worshipped. I do hope he never spends too much time watching history channels - he'd start warning us about the dangers of worshipping Hitler.

Here at It Is What It Is Towers we had another clearout yesterday, and shredded about nine hundred newses we had collected for possible future coverage. As you can see, they come in thick and fast and there's no shortage of things for us to write about, so they weren't needed. In other news I have resolved to start reading properly again, and over a coffee today I resumed my reading of Haruki Murakami's short story collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman with his sory A Folklore For My Generation: A Pre-History Of Late Stage Capitalism which I enjoyed.
that's all from me for now
see you around
