    Won't lie, clicked it mostly to hear the "I am the Doctor" theme which I knew would be in there.

    My desktop computer is failing at the most basic of tasks this morning. I think it is crying out for some more memory and generally saying that I'm a meany for wanting it to do all these tasks. Which is probably true, but it's getting really irritating how slow it is sometimes.

    RAM is like 2.99.

    So a vara-judge in the case against Breivik was declared... um, can't find an english word for that. Wierd. He had a conflict of interest due to having a son who was active in AUF. Anyway, that was not big news. Or really news at all. But it prompted them to also print this picture and jesus christ could you look more like an asshole?

    RAM is like 2.99.

    To take it from its current 1GB to the maximum it can take, which is 4GB would probably cost me about £50-60, or about £25-30 to either double or triple it's current amount. It's probably worth the hassle and cost and somewhere on the massive list it's down to do, I just never get around to doing so.

    What version of Windows are you using? Because I don't know much about computers, but I do know that Windows can use a GB or so just on its own. So any more RAM is a huge increase in the free RAM available, and makes a massive difference.

    I figure I could take a bear.

    They also have BEAR or LION names such as Aslan which is even more scary. I imagine all chechens look like lumberjacks who have been lifting 20 tons of logs per day since they were 5.

    and when they were ten, they were sent into gulags and escaped and walked, on foot, from Siberia to here to stab people.

    Military service is mandatory for all Turkish men - they can only escape it if they are ill, disabled or homosexual. But proving homosexuality is a humiliating ordeal.

    "They asked me if I liked football, whether I wore woman's clothes or used woman's perfume," he says.

    ''I had a few days' beard and I am a masculine guy - they told me I didn't look like a normal gay man.''

    He was then asked to provide a picture of himself dressed as a woman.

    Over the years, gay life has been becoming more visible in Turkey's big cities. Cafes and clubs with an openly gay clientele have been opening in Istanbul, and last summer's gay pride march - unique in the Muslim world - was the largest ever.

    But while there are no specific laws against homosexuality in Turkey, openly gay men are not welcome in the army. At the same time, they have to "prove" their homosexuality in order to avoid military service.

    He had gone prepared with explicit photographs of himself having sexual intercourse with another man, having heard that it would be impossible to get out of military service without them.

    ''The face must be visible,'' says Gokhan. ''And the photos must show you as the passive partner.''

    So according to the Turkish Military, you are only gay if you cross dress and are a bottom what?

    Yeah man, I tell ya what, man, that dang ol' internet, man, you just go in on there and point and click, talk about w-w-dot-w-com, mean you got the naked chicks on there, man, just go click, click, click, click, click, it's real easy, man.

    Apparently the formation of memory has been linked to a calcium fixing protein in the brain, with the notion being that the reinforcement of the cytoskeleton of nerves leads to memory permanence - I guess by "fixing" the synaptic connections.

    Things like that make me wonder about how recoverable someone's personality might be from dead brain tissue. Like, even if the brain didn't work, if you had a high resolution image of the cellular structure...would you be able to reconstruct memories by looking at the sort of direction that the synapses must have had and things?

    God we need higher resolution MRI.

    He probably think he looks cool and in control with that smug little smile, but he just looks crazy.

    According to the turkish military, you're just another prick trying to dodge conscription. What're they going to do, make it easy on you?

    Back when almost every man got conscription here, you could get out of it by being a pacifist but you had to prove it.

    "prove" in the legal sense, as in, make it seem reasonably likely.

    It involved police interrogation asking you questions like if someone was killing your wife/little sister/mother/dog, would you do violence to them in order to stop them?

    If yes, off to the arctic to sit by the soviet border and wait for World War III.

    and if you had ever been in a fight that the police knew about, you're going.
