Knife, snow and spore

Remarkable news item: the Canadian Supreme Court overturned a ban on a ceremonial dagger. A school in Quebec was apparently wrong in telling a 12 year boy that he could not wear his dagger in the classroom.

Once again a snowwarning in effect in The Netherlands. Hey, it’s March, right? Almost time to find a terrace in front of your favourite cafe! (I remember a nice warm March 2000).

Via Digg, I was notified of this Spore video (Wikipedia on Spore), which apparently is an old video anyways. While the concept is interesting, I keep wondering what the point is: it’s a sort of pacman and ‘destroy and ha-ha-ha’ god-level game. Did hear Will Wright mention the game Populous in that video? Populous!
