So yesterday was my birthday. I am 33 now. I spent the day lounging and playing games. I went to dinner with lara and adam. All in all not a bad way to spend the day. Now i am off to work.

For all of those of you who likes to talk and argue politics or current events I have a couple of cool sites for you.

http://www.factcheck.org/
Fact check is a good site for calling bullsh*t on public statements by politicians. They review speeches by politicians and actually take apart the real facts of the speech. It can be a painful lesson to both sides of such arguements.

http://www.fedstats.gov/
This site is also useful. It is a set of links to raw statistics the government makes available to us all the time yet we never see.

And knowing is half the battle!
