    Poll: What kind of school did Dissensus posters go to?

    ...leaves you crippled for life. A lot of bullied dissensians - I wonder why? Me: two comprehensives (nice and very nice) and a grammar school (tiresome), mild verbal harassment due to being the new kid and/or posher than most, but nothing heavy.

    Rock n Roll/Plastic People of the Universe

    I haven't heard Egon Bondy's Happy Hearts Club Banned, but their live CD 1997 rocks - all songs from the 70s. PPU fans I know rate it higher than their earlier releases, when they had little time to practice, their recording equipment was primitive, etc. The whole history of the Czechoslovak...

    Has anyone ever analysed their dreams?

    Good link on sleep paralysis. I've had occasional episodes of that for the last few years, but had kind of assumed it was specific to me. The sense of malevolence is very powerful, and the first few times were frightening, but fear was outweighed by curiosity, and I began to appreciate the...

    Wich net browser do you use?

    K-Meleon for me, recommended for jaded Firefox users. It uses the Gecko engine, only runs on Windows, and is fast, light , and highly configurable. Most Firefox extensions can be reproduced using macros, and you can use a web filter to block ads. You have to fart around with it a bit to get the...
