Britain Leaving the EU - For and Against

A NOTE OF APOLOGY: Several days ago I uploaded a version of this video which somewhat implied (courtesy of Talisker whisky, and being a general idiot) that Southern Ireland (the Republic of Ireland, if you prefer) is part of the UK. I've fixed it up since then, but the patriotic damage is done. Massive apologies to the Irish among you who saw that at the time. You probably felt how I would if someone tried to make out Stephen Fry is Australian. It was quite embarrassing, and to make up for it I'd gladly buy you all a pint. One...

The Brain Zoo - Basics of Meditation

Another lesser-known member of the brain zoo is Procrastination Salmon. He rarely makes an appearance. Twitter ► https://twitter.com/Exurb1a New book ► https://tinyurl.com/hf928gk Discuss passive-aggressively ► https://www.reddit.com/r/Exurb1a/ There is absolutely no reason to associate meditation with religion these days, not if you’re atheist or agnostic. It’s totally possible to be secular and still consider it just as valuable. Which it is. There’s also no reason to associate it with claims about superpowers, enlightenment, seeing other dimensions, or suddenly being able to do triple backflips with a jam sandwich on your head. The last one would be cool though. As mentioned in the video,...
