Make the world a better place in two easy steps!*
1) If I believe my friends, which I do, the particle physics and astronomy funding has been slashed by 25%, not because of a conscious policy to spend the money on other things, but because of an admin fuck-up. There is a petition here, and a facebook group here (although the latter seems more aimed at young physicists than, err, anyone that wants to help and is interested, which I think is a mistake)
2) Go and vote on the NHS website about whether they should censor the genatalia on a "how your body works" diagram.
*Or make yourself feel better by shouting about bad things while achieving very little, I'm not sure.
