On the behavior of Dutch hooligans in Rome, last Thursday, and the response to it, from Rome:
Lots of big words are coming out of a country that elected a fascist prime minister repeatedly, allows a fascist party and fascist politicians in parliament, and an openly fascist football club in its own capital. Also, please ignore the clear reports of provocation by your masked and anonymous police forces (http://supportersnotcustomers.com/2015/02/20/italys-worst-hooligans/).
And for those Italians who start screaming: “That’s not true for all Italians!” .. now you know why calling ALL Dutch and ALL Feyenoord supporters “animals” and “beasts”, and demanding apologies from an ENTIRE country or even the CLUB Feyenoord is fucking ridiculous.
You are no more civilized than the assholes that vandalised your city. SHAME ON YOU, TOO, for responding and flailing around like emotionally unstable children.
Oh, and apologize for the barbaric circumstances on Lampedusa and for how you treat the Roma people and immigrants in general while you’re here. You know, those people you also call “animals” and “beasts”.
See how that feels.
Not nice, is it?

I guess I’ll keep it around as an archive.
Most of my musings can be found on Google Plus, where I have a bigger and wider audience than this blog might ever have, and where interaction is so much easier. So why waste more time here?
You can find me at http://googleplus.bengrimm.net/
See you there.

Filed Under English | Comments Off on [EN] I’ll denounce the Theory of Evolution
You come up with a competing scientific theory. You come up with a set of valid and testable null hypotheses derived from that theory. You rigorously test and re-test these null hypotheses, using field studies and statistical data processing, and you never alter or cherry-pick the data to match your hypotheses.
In fact, you go out of your way to disprove them and to reject the hypotheses for which the evidence is not sufficient.
Depending on the outcomes of your tested hypotheses you rewrite and refine and redefine your competing theory and present your new scientific breakthrough to the scientific community for peer review.
This will have two major consequences:
- I will stop rolling on the floor laughing at your idiotic ideas
- You will have proved the Theory of Evolution all over again.
