On Sumatra, the volcano Sinabung recently erupted. The last time it erupted was in 2010, before that it had been dormant for over 400 years.…Continue
I thought this was funny
How do you differentiate between "anybody" and "anyone" (or for that matter, "somebody" and "someone")?
As if pugs weren't ugly enough already...Continue
The list gets longer: now we know that the USA are spying on their allies.
I'd say: what a surprise! The only thing surprising is that they got caught. Not so surprising: the German Secret Service didn't know until recently, at least they say so.
A little disappointing: the US remain the same shit hole of arrogance, violence and self-serving warmongering…Continue
...in the old industrialised world (Europe, North America, Japan. Australia) tend to vote for conservative parties, that objectively work against their interests. The question is why. Are the working poor, who get fucked over by their bosses on a daily basis, not only poor but also hopelessly stupid?
No, they aren't.
They have understood very well, that compared to the rest of the world's population, they are privileged and that status is about to change, as…Continue
Anybody here doing work-out on a concept 2 indoor rowing machine by chance?

Just today, the five ministers in the Italian government coming from the party "Popola della libertà" (Nation of Freedom), the latest name of ex-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's private political party (he's the richest man in Italy, at least officially), have left the coalition with the social democratic party and have officially resigned. The reasons behind that break-up (and probably the end of the latest government under prime-minister Enrico Letta) are not insurmountable political…Continue
Dylan has been posting all kinds of statistics, describing certain traits of people classified by their race. Others have been making the kind of comments and remarks we've come to expect from them over the years regarding race and the behaviour they attribute to the respective race. And obviously, all things race are always the first choice if you want a discussion on VH to take a steep dive into all kinds of insults and nonsense.
But how do you define what makes a person be a member…Continue
The breathtaking events over the weekend on VH have overshadowed other events in the rest of the world. One that is of a certain importance for a few members here are the elections in Germany that took place on Sunday.
As some of you might know, the political landscape and campaign traditions in Germany differ greatly from the ones in the US, mainly they're a lot less spectacular and a lot more boring. One tradition that is probably hard to grasp for US citizens, is the fact that we…Continue
As Danial has stated, there is a long standing controversy in the"backroom" over moderation policy. There is also a fallout within the mod team. All that would normally not be any of my business, but I have witnessed:
a. recurring erratic behaviour from Danial, involving deletion of comments and blogs without team consent
b. inactivity on his behalf when he was due (and consented to it) to act
c. Danial using his possibilities as a mod to make a private video…Continue
The well know email encryption site lavabit has shut down due to pressure by the US government.
Of course this would not have happened under a republican government with the renowned freedom fighter George Walker Bush and the famous civil rights activist Richard Bruce Cheney.
My last post was just an amusing find during my readings on my main point of interest, the story of and stories from Edward Snowden. One of the questions around this affair is certainly whether the man should be considered a traitor or a hero. In short, I'd say he's hero - what's your opinion?
I also looked up how the story is handled in the US media and came upon this article in the Christian Post.
as you might know from SSTom's comment on my previous blog, we now have the missing money for our yearly NING fee.
Honestly, I'm pleasantly surprised by the ease and maturity with which this issue was handled by you, very nice.
So, congratulations to one more year of VloogerHeads and thank you to the generous donors.
that time of the year is nearing: we will soon need to pay our yearly fee.
Contrary to what I said a few months ago, we don't have all the money needed (I confounded $ and €). We need roughly $ 150.00, a sum that should be easily raised by you, the honourable members of VloggerHeads. As you surely know, SSTom holds our paypal account and is ready to help you with any questions you might have about how to get your hard earned money from your bank account to…Continue
