Bolivia, footy, computers...

One of the best things about blogging is that you find kind of "separated at birth" people: if you like my blog's mixture of subjects then Oscar's blog - about Evo Morales, soccer tactics and PHP programming could be for you! (He just posted a critical dissection of my explanation of the offside rule under Saturday's posting).

I love the randomness of the web. But the biggest laugh is Google's "contextuasl ads." For instance on one of my posts denouncing fundamentalist (emphasis on the "mentalist") christianity I got loasds of ads for God products. Another in which I said Google resembles a character in a Shakespearean tragedy in that the seeds of its downfall are contained within the flaws in its corporate character I got loads of ads up for shakespeare related stuff even though that analogy was the only mention of Shakespeare in a 2000 word post.
Great innit?

Thanks for praise. When I saw your headline I thought, wow - someone else has a blog like me? Cheers!
