A stupid situation with emails–or rather people.

This is brutal – as you might have come to expect. This is the situation. You send an email to someone. You double check that it’s left your email box and it shows as ‘sent’ in your sent box. You wait on a response. There is no response or acknowledgementRead More

How to be popular–twenty core tips.

This is a summary of my tips on being popular. Of course they are experience-based, as against objectively evidence-based or researched. And the reason I know they work is because I almost never use them – but I see others using them and succeeding a lot of the time. SmileRead More

The dance of the molecules. What is the song?

Facing the existential vacuum is not everybody’s cup of tea (especially on a Sunday morning, when this is written). Sure – most ‘normal’ people will be in a building designed for religious believers, learning how great God is and re-confirming ‘his’ goodness and purpose.

Some more music videos

Well I’ve not shared music vids on this site for some time. As usual, I’ll expect others to make wild inferences or assertions about my state of mind.

Imagine this

Imagine that you became aware of some danger that was about to materialise and cost thousands of lives in the next two hours. You then approach a few people and explain to them what you had discovered. They look at you with a blank stare. You try again. They utterRead More

Assumptions

I’m briefly addressing something that’s happening in the minds of others – that hasn’t been communicated to me. How do I know it’s happening? Ahhh.. human nature and the failure of logic predicts what they’ll be thinking. You see people use their own experiences as yardsticks to estimate the world.Read More

Trinidadian Lawyer Secures Historic Conviction of a former Head of State

A ‘Trinidadian’ lawyer – Ula Nathai-Lutchman – played a prominent role in the Prosecution team that secured the historic Judgement against former President Charles Taylor. Mr. Taylor, who was indicted while he was still President of Liberia, is the first former Head of State to be convicted by an internationalRead More

Situation at a parking meter machine

Everyday situations bring some fascination about the human condition. I’ve done my shopping and return to a multi-storey car park. There is small bay where you go – on foot – to pay for the time that your car spent parked. There are two machines. One large, the other smallRead More
