Ladies, Please Stop Doing This On Instagram

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

Seriously, I’m happy for you (no sarcasm). In today’s fast-food, overindulged, carbohydrate-addicted world, maintaining a…

Be quiet in there

Here’s a thought or two: You think you’re informed, but where do you get your information from? – The Internet? .. Its now become clear due to research, that we retain and remember information better, when we’re less distracted, or when there’s less information to dilute what we’re trying to retain.  Educational theorists say ‘distraction … Continue reading

A letter to you

Dear you: We are hysterically paranoid.  People are shutting off from each other, and its all part of the plan.  Mass media hysteria would have you believe that the world is out to get you, or worse still, maybe it’s the whole universe – a force not benevolent, but actually evil – and we’re just … Continue reading

On the possibilities of WWIII

World War III – What’s that you say?  Nuclear war?  ‘Western intervention’ to allow Ukraine a ‘fair fight’? – this really is the kind of bullshit that politicos and pundits are talking about, and the terms they’re using, regarding the battle being waged across the Russia-Ukraine border. But really, what the fuck do they even … Continue reading

News has come to light that the downed MH17 plane found near the Russia-Ukraine border, might have met an end not publicized in the mass media.  Unsurprising perhaps, but a revelation that surely begs a very obvious question: Who the fuck do we believe? ..  As newsmedia – in print and on the idiotbox – … Continue reading

The world is not enough

The world is not enough Oh but it surely is.  There’s a giant machine that is trying to convince you that its not though.  Its hyperactive, hyperbolic, its so hyped up, it tells you you’re the one on drugs, or makes you feel as though you need them, if you’ll buy from their supplier. It … Continue reading

The worst airline ive ever flown with

Lets go back in time for a second.  Not back to the time of my flight(s) home from Brasil.  Lets go all the way back to the mid 70’s (ok, its not that far – but in the scheme of this story, it is) when the whole experience I suffered through in June/July 2014 on … Continue reading

Contribute to solutions, not problems

Contribute to solutions, not problems

Constantly pedalling hate for or against our government or opposition – diatribe usually poorly disseminated, badly paraphrased from biased, slanted sources – merely gives opportunistic haters the scope they need to further create the hype of fear that you say the government is trying to control our lives with.  And now you are a fear-mongerer … Continue reading
