Was pleasantly surprised to see Insertion Sort in Python on a dress!

Assuming they can fit in the offered sizes :-)

Here in Australia, we're having an expensive, divisive, non-binding exercise in
political propaganda, a postal survey on whether or not to continue allowing
discrimination in marriage. The pro-discrimination side has run a TV
advertisement claiming that equal rights for marriage is just the first step
that will end with our sons being told they can wear dresses to school (and
possibly even lions and lambs lying down together in the field).

Apparently that's meant to be the end of the world as we know it, or something.

The amusing thing to my mind is that the pro-discrimination, anti-equality
faction also tend to be the most conservative[1] pro-monarchy faction. I don't
recall seeing them go into paroxysms of gender confusion when Prince Charles,
Duke of Edinburgh, appears in public wearing a kilt.

[1] Gosh, that's a shocker. Bet you didn't see that coming.

?Cheer up,? they said, ?things could be worse.? So I cheered up, and sure
enough, things got worse.
