    You can live your life perfectly fine without them. It's very rarely that they actually effect people (especially us because nobody cares about Ireland).

    I don't give two shits about current events, they really don't interest me in the slightest although I follow a few stories that actually interest me closely like the AV referendum and the England and Wales local elections but other than that it's just sleaze on the privy lives of men

    I have a few sources I follow to keep up on things, especially in emerging technology.
    "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Time Enough For Love, by Robert Heinlein

    I thought there would be (more or less) a slew of posts about the whole Libya thing. Boy, aren't I red in the face

    i think the thing is i feel i know enough about things that i can more or less tell if what something someone says about current events is bullshit or not just by knowing what sort of philosophy the statement/opinion invokes and how that philosophy has borne out in the past etc, without needing to talk to/listen to/read stuff by a bunch of bildungphilisters

    still i am negligent in my following of things. i have really very little idea whats going on in the world right now.
