I find @therealpolina’s twitter posts rather good reading, but twitter’s format is awful, so when i want to share them it’s hard for others to read, especially if they’re not used to twitter’s layout, so I compile & post them here. Sources are always linked for each thread.
It is an anagram of the first two letters of each word from the phrase “Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained.”
That is what I thought to myself in the lead up to creating this blog, and taking some other actions to remedy the unbearable urge to do something about the situation I’ve found myself in. I think it’s quite appropriate on multiple levels.
While “Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained” is what I am telling myself, “Gone Nova” is how I see he current world situation. Like a star running out of fuel, the pressures in the core of Western Civilization and Culture are no longer in equilibrium. Something is going to give, and it’s going to blow up in a violent eruption like a supernova. Hence why this name is appropriate on another level.
