Annoying

Why should this TED video annoy me? I have no problem with the content of what is said per se. So what could be the problem? It’s this syndrome that the humans are developing where: 1. Some big-fish researcher with fancy machines investigates some fascinating thing – and comes upRead More

Trying to be helpful

I’ve had it – I’m sick of people trying to be helpful! Why? It’s repeatedly the case that I ask someone or the other ( – and it doesn’t matter who) for a simple piece of information by email e.g. “Am I at venue X on Mon, Tues and Wednesday?”Read More

Rip-off at a famous restaurant

Yesterday I went to a famous restaurant in my home town. It wasn’t very expensive – and in any case I chose to afford their prices. So, what’s the fuss this time – you’re probably wondering. That’s one wine glass with wine in it at extreme left (though you seeRead More

Small thing perhaps

Sometimes you see something that raises a question mark in your mind – but the question (before the question mark) is not properly formed and you think to yourself “Life’s to short.. I can’t be bothered” – and you don’t spend any more effort on it, formulating a question. ButRead More

Shameless Britain

Yawwwnnnnn!!! It’s the first day of the year. I was up late last night sipping champagne and chilling at home. This morning, I decided to go a bit surfing on the net. Yeah, for sure I checked out Rock newspapers, and then drifted on to so-called ‘British news’. One ofRead More

To err is human, they say.
