  • Total Solar Eclipse as seen from space

    Yesterday’s total Solar Eclipse as seen from space: Shot from the ISS. That is cool.

  • Dear Diary, part 1

    Day 1 I saw this girl standing on the opposite platform today, waiting like I was. Almost exactly like I was actually – slouched at the end of day made much too long, iPod plugged into ears, staring off into the middle distance. Day 3 I saw that girl (from a couple of days ago) […]

  • Clarkson on the Alfa Romeo 159

    Clarkson reviews the Alfa Romeo 159: “The greatest sensation of speed afforded to ordinary man is not on a go-kart or a rollercoaster. It comes when you’ve got the cruise control set at 70mph, the traffic in front is stopping and momentarily you can’t find the button to turn it off… It feels like you’re […]

  • If I Were A Cop

    I found myself thinking yesteday: If I was a cop, and I was feeling particularly sadistic one morning, I would go on the freeway and drive at about 80 km/h, or 50 – depending on how sadistic I was feeling and how fast the traffic around me was going. And then I’d just sit and […]

  • Schmap Guide New York

  • I got nothing

    That’s it, I give up. I’ve been trying to write something here which would interest even me, but I can’t. I’m all outta ideas. Taking a break until I can come up with something. I’ve been poking around Web 2.0 a lot more recently, and that’s keeping me amused. There are some bizzare sites out […]

  • Answers to Tuesday

    So I figure I can’t be stuffed waiting a week because no research questions have been asked and it’s practically only two questions on the list anyway. Answering in order of ease, we have: Jack asks: Do you ever worry that your friends will realise your sister is much cooler than you and one day […]

  • GitS:SAC 3: SSS

    Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society (a.k.a. GitS:SAC-S³) coming soon *dances*

  • Tuesday Questions

    So in the vain hope of trying to put something regular into this blog, I’m going to send out a call for questions. Ask me a question, any question, one question per commenter, and I’ll do my best to answer it. I’ll return with the answers in a week’s time; this gives me time to […]

  • Bah Humbug

    The old scepter rises again. You’ve had your patience tested and emptied before, but over time it builds up again, and you, in your forgiving nature, forget that it happened before. It’s the easiest way to live – in the moment rather than the past – but it does catch you unawares at times, like […]
