Links Du Jour (While Darth Vader Plays Star Wars Themes On Bagpipes Riding A Unicycle)

It’s “One Of Those Days Where Darth Vader With Bagpipes On A Unicycle Seems A Sensible Way To Deal With The World”. So, have some reading or else. Something cheery first: Global Atheist Convention Gold Passes and Gala Dinner are sold out. You can, however, get Sunday passes and general seating. But I don’t know how long they’ll last either!

“Take the broken household goods in my car down to the rubbish tip / Come back with more junk that I came down with.” – paraphrasing a song by 90s comedy group Found Objects.
