We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata quote of the day

I’m all for equality. I am. That’s why I let my female staff work longer than the men so they can earn the same.

  • *Shakes head, totally bewildered by the British Pub Culture reference*

    And another thing; when is the Culture Blog coming back?

  • Priceless.

    Scott, Brian’s blog is being fixed as we speak (blog?)…

  • I'm suffering for my art

    Brian – he’s been telling that same joke for at *least* a decade…

  • You’re suffering for your art:

    Good for him, it’s very funny, and I’m very grateful that he kept repeating it long enough for me to finally hear it.

    That one about Wilkinsonland (i.e. Australia) is starting to date badly, though. Wilkinson hasn’t played for England since the World Cup, and England are consequently not at all what they were. (I’m talking about rugby by the way.)

    Brian – I found it funny when I first heard it too. Which was when I was in year 10 (15 years of age) – I’m 24 now. Haven’t heard the Wilkinsonland joke, though… as an Aussie I mightn’t be so amused – even on the first telling. 🙂
