International Delusions

"Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one."

I have voted Liberal Democrat for 20 years but as the "Left" declines further and further into insanity and leaves me further and further to the "Right", I see no alternative but to vote for the BNP (or another right-of-centre party should one appear). Tired of seeing the ever increasing number of rabid, ludicrous, hate-filled, "left-wing" blogs, I thought I'd better participate. Now it seems this makes me a racist, fascist, Islamophobic, "Zio-Nazi" (!), crusading white supremacist! I'm such an enigma, even to myself.

Islamophobia - an entirely rational recognition of the threat posed by radical Islam.

Racist/Fascist/Islamophobe/Etc. - anyone who recognises said threat or attempts to resist the global jihad.

Survey reveals TV picture quality confusion

"Both [LCD and plasma] often suffer from a whole host of digital side-effects such as ghosting, smearing and picture-judder when showing standard definition broadcasts....Plasma and LCD TVs rely on digital processing software far more than traditional TVs. Unless this software is spot-on it can lead to all sorts of unpleasant picture side-effects"

The best picture quality still comes from a CRT on an analogue signal (HD aside, we assume). First they managed to make us pay the same or more for poor quality audio (MP3, DAB), now they're doing the same with television, just so we can have the dubious "benefits" of more, poor quality channels. The picture quality of the nasty MPEG compression used by digital is terrible - personally, I would find some broadcasts almost unwatchable on a flat panel. Try tuning your flat panel in to the analogue signal - the picture's twice as good.
