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

“That commons had become too tragic for me”

    That is why, when I encounter a nice looking buffet, I quickly launch an “enclosure movement” before someone else decides to graze their cattle on my helping of lasagne, or grass, or… well you get the picture 😀
