Freedom to read

Since when do we charge people with "owning books"?!

I don't mind the government investigating terror subjects, but I wasn't aware it was a crime to own a book in the UK. I own two "terrorist" e-books - lock me up, I'm a danger to society!

I also own the book of Mormon D: Quick, get a restraining order in case I knock on your door! I'm not even religious, let alone Christian or Mormon.


In semi-related news, I dreamt last night that I was invited for an interview in South Africa, which was just across the sea from Europe (er, in the north of Africa...). When I got there, it turned out that South Africa was a fascist utopia, and I had to kill some secret service assassin in order to survive and prove that I was worthy of living there. I think I took the job, but I felt a bit weird about it, and thought I might change my mind. Then my friend Thomas from middle-school picked me up, and started going on about how awful and unjustifiable the situation in South Africa was, and I started explaining how the extreme measures and inhumanity actually made it a better place to live. I was going to go on to talk about how I didn't think the ends justified the means, but he basically wasn't listening and wanted to trash-talk the Nazis.

Flat news

Things still to do:
  • Buy cupboard, chest of drawers and shoe shelves
  • Await replacement RAM from Crucial
  • Retrieve wireless IR emitter parts, DVDs, USB preamp and other assorted things from Milton Keynes and Cambridge
  • Build wireless IR emitter with Tom
  • Put away laundry
  • Build media server?
It's a much shorter list than last time.
