Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1.  I'm at work where there's no pancakes, so no sacrifice.

  2.  If by "blog," you mean actually writing diaries at ET, I usually do that to try to show people the sheer absurdity of the notions we accept as fact or correct and to rid my head of bothersome things that get in there via less discriminating media.  And to brainwash you about Russia as part of my FSB duties.

  3.  If by "blog," you mean reading or commenting on ET, I usually do that because I am at work, in front of a computer, in a library, so the nature of my work is antisocial, and I feel more "connected" talking to others.  And if I am going to "waste time" on-line, I want it to be with people I find intellectually stimulating/challenging and satisfactorily entertaining and from whom I will learn something new everyday so my brain does not rot and I don't go around asserting things about the world that just are not true.  Most ETers more than meet my elitist criteria.

I do lurk about and occasionally post at other blogs, like Prairie State Blue, Daily Kos and Sean's Russian Blog, but for some different reasons.

Come, my friends, 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
