Any South African readers with iBurst as an ISP will relate to the following. Anyone else may be utterly disinterested in this post, so the rational choice would be to move right along, maybe to the ever-excellent Pharyngula…
Apologies for the paucity of posts – until that Golden Day when slackers are given the respect they deserve, life and work sometimes intrude on one’s Resistentialism. And furthermore, one could quite safely gamble on this relative silence continuing until July 9 or so, when the World Cup ends (although there is another – quite likely – alternative: that Resistentialist.com gets completely subsumed by football posts!).
For the historical record, and hopefully to demonstrate the supreme powers that higher level Resistentialists possess, here is a document of the Semi-Finalists and winner of the 2006 World Cup:
Semi-finals: Argentina, Netherlands, Brazil, France
Final: Netherlands vs Argentina
Top-scorer: Ruud van Nistelrooy
I’d like to say England will win, but Argentina beat them in the QuarterFinals (I think on penalties, but my crystal ball is a bit cloudy on this issue).
One member of the Resistential community cannot understand why the rest of us are so attached to our (or each others’) cats. Perhaps we do fall into the quite typical trap of anthropomorphism when interacting with our cats, but despite that, they remain wonderful companions. And they are undoubtedly resistential – they may in fact be the ones who brought the movement to this planet.
For those who want some context with regard to this post:
