You really don't want to be here...

You want to be at my new blog instead.

Yes, I've finally taken the plunge and integrated it into my own website. Yay me.

Hop along over why don't you?

Ill-thought-out Campaigns # 7978951235

You can tell spring is just round the corner.

Fitness First have just started doing a "Get Yourself a Beach Bum" campaign.

Big splashy logo on their website.

Unfortunately, due to some clever positioning of their corporate maxim in the same advert, what the current picture says is "Get Yourself a Beach Bum. Join the World's Largest for on 69p."

I am a member of the worlds largest bum.

I feel so proud.

The Law is an Ass

So, a study has concluded that the drug laws in this country are "driven by moral panic" and hopelessly in a need of an overhaul.

Yes, I find myself rather agreeing there. I am very much of the "criminalising it just makes it more dangerous and besides which in moderation they're quite fun" school of thought.

It is, however, perhaps unsurprising that the Home Office are treating a report on the subject by the Royal Society of Arts rather less seriously than they otherwise might.

Odd that.
