The first hardback reprint of Charley’s War is out. I meant to catch the strips when they were reprinted in the Judge Dredd Megazine, but it was so expensive and there was so little else of interest in it that I stopped. This is far better value, and hopefully they’ll reprint all the stories this way.

We figured out yesterday that the Intelligent Designers are going to prove Darwin right by devolving to a lower life form because of their beliefs.

Early attempts to use scientific theory to urban planning were, if not total disasters, definitely utilising the wrong sciences. Rather than the rigid sets of rules that gave us Milton Keynes, planners are now embracing Complexity Theory to help plan spaces around people.

I’ve decided that it could get a bit depressing always having 100 things to aspire to. So far I’ve always added new goals to the 100 Things list every time I crossed one off. But I’m finding it hard to think up new aims. The last new one- Make love with a cheerleader– was a little silly. (I’m not saying I wouldn’t do it, it’d be fun. Silly, but fun.) So, until the list comes down to a manageable level, I’m not going to replenish it.
