Hotel Situations

When I say I’m living in a different world and wish to be beamed up, some people think I’m being arrogant. What about if I’m just right!? Look, at these two situations which assaulted me in quick succession this morning. Breakfast – waitress looks at me vacantly and utters somethingRead More

Situation on a bus. My bad.

Yesterday I got on to bus in my local town to get to the train station. Nothing spectacular about that you may think – and rightly so. After all people are doing this a zillion times a day – innit?   I do this short journey of about ten minutes,Read More

The Cap is totally blowed down!! Like totally! Amma speechless.. just listen and watch. This one was last night – on Britain’s Got Talent.

Of Justice and hunger

Research evidence has revealed that how lenient a judge might be is related to how close s/he is to a meal break! A hungry judge is an angry judge – you might think, and you’d be on the right track. Recidivism amongst offenders also predicted outcomes. However, even after controllingRead More

Confused and primitive to the core.

I was motivated to write this having reflected on my interactions with the human species recently. They pride themselves as being several notches above other animals.
