In Defence of Liberty

Driven by data; ridden with liberty.

Happy Birthday to In Defence of Liberty

This is my 103rd post on this blog, which has reached its first birthday. I’ve written short essays and articles on a cornucopia of topics, such as government power, sugar subsidies, cosmological arguments for the existence of God, Formula 1 and NUS elections.  I’m soon to complete my PhD thesis, but I will aim to keep this blog fresh with new perspectives on major issues. I would like to thank you, the reader, for coming to my blog. I hope you have enjoyed my inquiries and analyses into government policies, economics and political stances.

It has been one year since I registered this blog. I hope you have enjoyed my writing.

Weirdest Searches

Most people come to my blog via search engines, usually seeking arguments in favour of liberty. However, a small number of people come to this blog by searching for rather unusual or highly specific terms. I don’t think any of these people found what they were looking for. Here is a flavour:

political government guy who drinks dr. pepper?

does ross brawn have a big penis?

is there any photos of the young meingitus boy kylie barton

write a conclusion to the investigation you have done so far. state whether the food in your school’s tuck shop can contribute to weight gain in learners or not, and why.

students cause problems in oldfield park bath

if a person consumes wine with a 13% alcohol content, what volume (in ml) would he or she drink every day if their consumption was at the upper limit of moderate regular drinking quoted in the canadian research? assume that one ml of alcohol has a mass of 0.789 g (or to put it another way, the density of alcohol is 0.789 g/ml)

eso alma

national union of students (nus) thinks it should all come from public money through taxation of the rich. like a clichéd politician, i think there is a middle way that is both fair and funded

    Happy birthday! As a gift to those readers who didn’t find what they were looking for, I’ve answered these outstanding questions in case they come back:

    does ross brawn have a big penis?
    –> It is to other men as sequoias are to shrubbery. Possibly.

    is there any photos of the young meingitus boy kylie barton
    –> If you mean Archie Barton, who lost his legs to the disease whilst a toddler, then yes: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1202489/Three-year-old-boy-takes-steps-12-500-bionic-limbs-losing-legs-meningitis-18-months-old.html. It’s reported that he’s in good health today.

    state whether the food in your school’s tuck shop can contribute to weight gain in learners or not, and why.
    –> Studies show that food can contribute to weight gain, but only if it is eaten. Furthermore, if you are learning at the precise time you consume food, your brain will fast-track the calories directly from the mouth, immediately burning them to fuel thoughts. In this way, learners will not gain weight while eating. (As an aside, this is why many people decide to eat at the same time as working out AND learning, accepting that if you have to eat at some point, you may as well change the circumstances in which you do so to make it beneficial – eating while (a) actively losing weight, and (b) this is the crucial point: not gaining weight from what you’re eating right now. This is why many treadmills in modern gyms have TV screens and fold-out dinner trays to keep the runners occupied – a survey of 5,967 fictitious gym-goers showed that amateurs (membership held for =2 years) were more likely to watch critical commentaries on 17th century ecclesiastical politics). I hope, anonymous seeker-of-knowledge, that this has comprehensively answered your question.

    is andy sawford mp doing well
    –> Depends on your criteria; judge for yourself – http://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/andy_sawford/corby. The most immediate points on his record are that he’s never rebelled against his party in this parliament and has voted very strongly for equal gay rights.

    –> Their capacity for learning is an annoyance to those who don’t wish to revise their opinions so frequently.

    if a person consumes wine with a 13% alcohol content, what volume (in ml) would he or she drink every day if their consumption was at the upper limit of moderate regular drinking quoted in the canadian research?
    –> Remember to use this answer to order the precise amount next time you go to a bar. But caution! (Buy) drink responsibly: ordering wine in units other than that of ‘small’, ‘large’ or ‘bottle’ will earn the emnity of bartenders everywhere. This demonstrates that mathematical accuracy is not useful in most social situations, a finding confirmed by every anecdote, ever.

    –> A lovely looking battery of telescopes: http://www.eso.org/public/teles-instr/alma.html. It watches for life above us but in disillusion doesn’t find it. X-files fans and defrocked priests can empathise.
