    Seems we have quite a few threads popping up with links to news articles with limited content actually written in the OP, so no genuine discussion or view points eventuates.

    Here begins a mega thread where you can dump links to articles you think people may find interesting but you don't think are worthy of a genuine debate or discussion or where you feel people won't have differing view points worthy of an entire discussion thread.

    What is "On Humour" like - is there anything more turgid than philosophical tracts on humour?

    found this to be an alternative read http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/...147788128?nk=51fae4aca48e4c9cadda6e4566221f8c

    It's not everyday you see behavior like this in the media unless Miley Cyrus is having another Coke withdrawal on twitter. I'm surprised such a misanthropic spitting ******* is even allowed near a tabloid of all things. He would have to be the most alienated out of touch shittest bloke of them all yet we respond to this by giving him a public voice and look what we get for it. This article.

    A thread to discuss topics of the day that don't really justify their own thread.
