What is a grumbler actually worth?

Most people these days grumble about their financial situation – unless you happen to be Bill Gates or Richard Branson – but they aren’t most people. From 2006 to now, I’ve found that when I get down to making suggestions to people who definitely communicate a need to improve earningRead More

To be or not to be..

I never read English Literature in my early days. That’s sad. It was a choice between ‘Sciences’ and ‘Literature’ –  a very sad bifurcation over which I had no control. However, now in these later years I can appreciate what I missed.   “To be, or not to be: thatRead More

Images – survival.

These images immortalising people will remain  so long as this race survives.  Sad.

I’m not a this sort of person

I often hear things of that nature from people e.g. “I’m not a computer person”, or “I’m not a driven by money sort of person”, or “I’m not a Nigela Lawson fan”, or “I’m not a Paxman person”, or “I’m not a Russell Brand person” or “I don’t like ToryRead More

More ways to think ‘stupid’.

Continuing on my ‘bandwagon’ of imitating stupidity – only to ensure that I define the concept – today I review a video and make some idiotic statements that will resound with a majority of stupid people. I assure you though that the stupid statements are based on errors of applicationRead More

Some differences

This will of course be expected to strain the brains of many folk who will go, “Sorry I don’t know anything about it.” And that’s the humans for you; if they know nothing about it then they don’t want to learn about it.

Beyond Evil

The Cap has recently  become disturbed by events in history – those related to Auschwitz. Mention of the word usually means that 80% of people switch off. After all who wants to read about atrocities committed on Jews etc. I know – people have better more pleasant things to do,Read More
