I laughed  Posted on 10/22/2014
This single line from The Big Bang Theory (S7E3) had me crying with laughter. On a plane. Somewhere over Belgium. It is funny, but I’m willing to admit that mild hysteria due to lack of sleep may have exacerbated my response to...

I used Wumdrop and it worked very well  Posted on 10/22/2014
Not a sponsored post. Not even a “please will you let people know how it went for you if it went well for you” post. Just to tell you that I used Wumdrop yesterday and it worked very well. I’d describe Wumdrop as a...

PistoriusBalls Special  Posted on 10/21/2014

Southern Cape Wee Stop Quota Photo  Posted on 10/19/2014

Paris Eagle video  Posted on 10/18/2014
I don’t know about you, but if I had an eagle, I’d definitely strap a camera to it and fling them both off a tall structure in France at the first available opportunity. You can’t do that with a beagle. Well, you...

Thoughts on Ebola screening  Posted on 10/17/2014

Remember when…  Posted on 10/16/2014
… all Facebook status updates had to begin with “is…”? These are the sort if things you start to think about when you’re bored in an airport bar. Bruce Hornsby and The Range are currently in charge of the...
