Is Utopia here yet?


Utopia! I ponder over how amazing this place would be and I’m unable to imagine how Sir Thomas More came up with this whole thing! The British Library had raised the same question. Is Utopia possible?

“In 1516 Sir Thomas More wrote the first ‘Utopia’. He coined the word ‘utopia’ from the Greek ou-topos meaning ‘no place’ or ‘nowhere’. But this was a pun – the almost identical Greek word eu-topos means a good place. So at the very heart of the word is a vital question: can a perfect world ever be realised?”- The British Library

Humans have already discovered enough to keep the race going for at least the next 20 generations (a ballpark figure). We have put man on the Moon, in the concluding process of putting him on Mars, we have innumerable scientific discoveries, Alan Turing created the computer, Edison gave us light, Shakespeare and Milton…

What PR Blitz Did The Puppies Do That Failed So Miserably?

The Arts Mechanical

Vox says that SJWs always lie, and the puppy kickers are no exception but this is just plain stupid.

Never mind the Noah Ward voting and the usual crybabying, so typical of spoiled people who absolutely HAVE to have everything the way they want all the time the rest of it has no connection to the reality. Let’s look at some of the thing Mr. O’Neil says shall we.

I’ve explained my rationale elsewhere, and I won’t rehash all that again, but in short — regardless of how the voting goes, the Puppies have made it abundantly clear that their primary goal is to have their ballot accepted. Having the bulk of fandom acknowledge their ballot as legitimate, and having their nominees read and voted on, paves the way for future Hugo ballots to be decided the same way: through the Puppies aggressive form of slate voting, which I…

The sponsoring railroads are the Missouri Pacific, Iron Mountain & Southern, Wabash, Ohio & Mississippi, Louisville & Nashville and the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis.

Salmon Pesto Pasta

Clash of Pans

20150509_184047I am absolutely obsessed with homemade pasta.  There is no way to describe exactly how superior it is to store bought dry stuff.  Since I bought my pasta roller attachment for my Kitchenaid, I have yet to buy a box of dry.  This is something I am proud of, as it definitely makes pasta night a full on endeavor, instead of something quick and easy.  But still totally worth it.

In the summer the best way to eat pasta is with a heaping spoonful of pesto.  Not a store bought jar of oil and salt.  Real, fresh herbs.  Add some grilled salmon and it is like being in summer paradise.

For my pesto, I use a combination of basil and arugula.  I grow my own fresh basil, but pesto requires such a huge quantity that in order to keep my plant alive I fortify it with about the same amount of…
