Paddy Roy Bates (a.k.a. Prince Roy of Sealand) Dies

Posted October 10th, 2012 by Number_Six

Paddy Roy Bates, the de facto ruler of Sealand, has died at the age of 90. Born in 1921, he joined the British Army at the outbreak of World War II. After the war he had a chain of butcher shops and was an estate agent; in the mid-1960s, he was involved in pirate radio. In 1967, he took over Rough Towers (an abandoned British fort in the North Sea) and rechristened it the Principality of Sealand, declaring independence from the UK. Many adventures followed, including run-ins with the British government and terrorist attacks. Bates passed away after suffering from Alzheimer's for several years.

We started making tools in the Bronze Age, the plague was in the Dark Ages, we strapped dogs and monkeys to rockets in the Space Age, and for a brief time in the '90s people wore shirts that changed color when they sweat.
But not everything is so cut and dried; sometimes things that you only thought existed in the black and white world were still around until just a few years ago. For instance ...

Texas schools rewrite history books to fit political ideology. (wtf?)

Posted October 21st, 2011 by EternityAblaze

Historians on Tuesday criticized proposed revisions to the Texas social studies curriculum, saying that many of the changes are historically inaccurate and that they would affect textbooks and classrooms far beyond the state's borders. The changes, which were preliminarily approved last week by the Texas board of education and are expected to be given final approval in May, will reach deeply into Texas history classrooms, defining what textbooks must include and what teachers must cover.

Rather than being the honest and resolute knight in shining armor that he is made out to be, on closer inspection he turns out to be one of the worst politicians Illinois has produced.
