UK election prediction
We've predicted Canada and the US; why not someplace where only some of us have any idea what goes on?
The British House of Commons has 650 seats (529 in England, 40 in Wales, 59 in Scotland and 18 in Northern Ireland). There are many minor parties that can win a few seats with less than 2% of the vote. The categories for this contest will simply be "Conservatives", "Labour", "Liberal Democrats", and "Other". (If you want to specify the "Other", you are welcome to, but it won't count in who has the best prediction).

The Dark Ages Maps
The Dark Ages - Northwest is the first map in a seven-part series exploring Europe in the Dark Ages, created by Lux Delux map-maker SunTzu.



Along with the Northwest, there's maps of the West, Southwest, Southeast, Northeast, and Central Europe during the Dark Ages.

Their forms combine into a truly stunning 1541x1269 Europe in the Dark Ages map.

Hot Grog: fast news
Hot Grog is a new website I setup to quickly read the internets. It uses RSS to grab news headlines from various sources and dumps them out in a simple list.

There's a few different pages covering various topics. Web Buzz is a great page to see all the fun stuff as it happens across the internet.

Please let me know what you think.

What kind of public healthcare should smokers get?
From the UK Daily Mail:
"There is increasing evidence that smokers have three times the number of complications as non-smokers. What we are proposing is that if someone who smokes is being referred for surgery, we would instead want them to be referred to a smoking cessation clinic and give them three months to stop smoking."

Dr Battersby added: "What we are doing is asking people to have a stab at giving up for three months and at the end we would review the situation. Some people will have stopped and will go on and have a referral for surgery. Others will not have stopped."

In those cases, decisions will be taken along the lines of clinical need.
I've always thought that public healthcare should have incentives built in to promote people keeping themselves healthy. Smoking is a pretty clear cut example of this. It doesn't much sense to spend a lot of public money treating people who are killing their bodies with cigarettes.
