Ah, a handy chart!

Many high-profile science communicators are increasingly outspoken these days about their atheism, and the evils done in the name of religion around the world. It’s hard to look at the atrocities committed by the likes of ISIS, and other religiously-motivated extremists (the Ku Klux Klan, for…

"Good people will do good things, bad people will do bad things. But for good people to do bad things that takes religion"

I would also disagree on the point of science and religion being in someways similar. The scientific method is completely at odd with the religious method of “because I said so / feel it in my soul / it is written”

As to the religious nature of extreamists, they often *come from* either no religious background or only a basic understanding. Once they convert then they become hyper-religious…often taking a harder line than those rasied in that religion.

Revenge…

So the builders next door thought that 8am on a Sunday was a good time to use a circular saw…

I decided it was a great time to make bacon butties knowing full well that the extractor will waft the smell past them AND that the greasy spoon is closed today ;)

The true colours of a company…

…are not seen when everything is going ok, but when things go wrong.

GORUCK are amazing products, I have several of their bags, but after I noticed a small fault on one of my items they sorted it out ASAP, including paying the postage from the UK before they even had it back and then rushing a replacement out to me including a free patch and sticker.

Top notch products and amazing service to back them up. Thanks guys.

It looks like I’ll be roughing it for two nights wildcamping in the middle of Dartmoor National Park and I am so freaking excited about that!

So jealous…I even have a new sleeping mat that I have not used yet. Running out of year to use it with my 1 season bag!

Last year we lost two of the Red Team members in two separate incidents in Afghanistan. They were there performing an assessment while attached to a military unit.
In one incident they took fire and one of the Team members, jumped out of his cover to assist a wounded soldier. He dragged the soldier to safety but he was shot while doing this. He died on the way to the field hospital.
The other incident was pure bad luck. A mortar round found its way to the position where the unit and the Team member were taking cover when the attack began. They had no chance.

Last year I put some of my watches and other gear for a raffle to help raise money for their families. This is year I would like to raise money in a way that everyone that donates gets something and after asking the guys in the Team, they all agree that tshirts are the best way. We all love them and we all need a cool, new tshirt.

So, we have created a new campaign with this tshirt. The design was made for the Team that went to Afghanistan. We figured it would be a good tshirt. I hope you guys like it.

Available in 4 different colors, the target is 100 tshirts. Make it count. Spread the word please!

Buy these t-shirts.

Such a great film. If the little one is awake all night again I might put it on :)
