Religion strikes again

People ask me why I'm anti-religion, some of them ask me what harm can it do. I offer you exibit A a Crucified Nun. Yet another fatality caused by outright stupidity.

Real Transformers

How cool? I think a certain second rate Hollywood director could learn something from this...

New Blog

Who am I?
I'm an engineering student, after a few years of getting no where with jobs and careers I finally decided to go back to school and learn something useful. I love all forms of engineering, but my first love will always be marine engineering. Ships, light houses, and oil rigs have fascinated me since I was a little kid, and when I'm done with the learning thats where I'll be looking for work.

Why post as Pharos?
The pharos light house was the only one of the 7 ancient wonders that served a purpose beyond hubris and vanity, a beacon to guide sailors safely into port. Thats the kind of thing we should all aspire to create, the other wonders were no less impressive, but none had half the value!

Why Isamdard's ghost?
Isambard Kindom Brunel is my hero, his work is truely the most inspiring thing I have ever seen even the failures impress! I stand by the belief that Brunel was the greatest man Britain ever produced!

What will I write about?
Pretty much anything I feel like, a lot of engineering, science, probably the occaisional rant about religion or pseudoscience, politics, and anything that happens to be in the news.
