Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the criminal partition of Ireland.

It created the Orange statelet, and condemned the Republic to a Catholic semi-theocracy with most of the nation's Protestants and the most industrialized parts of its working class behind the border in the North.

Spanish justice & democracy, eh?

For organising a referendum the following Catalan political leaders have received these jail sentences:

* Oriol Junqueras: 13 years
* Raül Romeva: 12 years

* Josep Rull: 10.5 years
* Jordi Cuixart: 9 years
* Jordi Sànchez: 9 years

Is it just me, or are American liberals trying to outdo conservatives by being even more hysterical and bloodthirsty in their anti-China bashing? This can't end well.

The Cutest Oscilloscope Ever Made

Original tweet :

I learned two jigs tonight. One I just didn't know before, and have no idea what it's called (will need to do some research tomorrow). The other I know but didn't know how to play, and can't think of the name. Maybe it'll come to me tomorrow.
