  1. Deaf-Blind Queer
  2. The Christ”? “I thought that Christ was equivalent to ‘The Crucified’ or ‘He who was crucified’ or just ‘crucified.’ […] As in: Jesus, Regional Manager. Jesus, FBI. Jesus, Actor/Director. Jesus, Christ. Give these people 2,000 years and they lose the comma”

  13. EvilML: “I decided to create a rather ‘evil’ HTML document. Why evil? Because, to my knowledge, there isn’t a browser under the sun that creates a sensible rendition of this document.” And its entire source code is:

    "<a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    ;<html<head<title>What does your HTML parser make of this?
    </></><body<h1<em>Emphasized</> in <h1></>
    <p<a href="<a href="http://www.example.com"<em>
    Emphasis</> in links as well</>. Evil?

  32. Outing of icons stirs up gay row”: “Tasmania’s trailblazing gay activist, Rodney Croome, has come under fire for publicly naming four of Tasmania’s leading cultural exports as being gay”
  33. Slash out Internet Exploder! “A bad decision made many years ago continues to torment us today! In an attempt to cover up the resulting confusion, Internet Explorer automatically replaces blackslashes in URLs with forward slashes. Thus, if you are using Internet Explorer, you will not be able to follow this link — no matter how hard you try! Go ahead, Exploder users, give it a try!”

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
