A bit of blogging

Yesterday I got home quite late and was too tired to blog. Today I could say it's way too hot to blog. But that would be a lame excuse. So it's time for a few links, thoughts and the like:

I was almost expecting this reaction: Paul comments that "Belfast is in IRELAND, Armin" in reaction to the entry mentioning Carrie. Well, yes and no. Depends on who you ask. I don't really want to be involved in this discussion, as I don't think any foreigner can really understand what is going on there. Nevertheless, if I look at a map at the moment I see two countries, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, currently part of the UK. As long as that's the case in my eyes Belfast is in Northern Ireland. Not acknowledging the status quo doesn't help the real issue, something I'm struggling to grasp: Why are people fighting and killing each other because of their religion?
I'm told Slugger O'Toole is a good weblog on this topic, they also have an entry with more blogs. Paul also has a lot of links, not to mention his weekly blog entries.

Change of topic, a few links I found interesting today and yesterday:

And with that it's time to turn off the computer.
