How An Airline Makes It Crystal Clear That I’m A Loser!

Loser

Reading Time: 3 minutes Have you noticed how when you board the bigger inter-continental aircrafts, you always have to go through the business class before you take out your reading glasses to evaluate the smallness of your economy seat that you cannot find in the first place? I have my own theory on this, a theory that is mine […]

“Brexit Illusions” – By Lewis Carroll And The Two Ronnies

illusions

Reading Time: 3 minutes I don’t know whether British citizens living in the heart of the EU should feel embarrassed, bemused, ashamed, or totally indifferent to the Brexit illusions going on in Westminster.

If There’s Life Without Facebook, Send Me The Link!

Reading Time: 4 minutes         It’s one minute to midnight and we are entering the last day of the year. Forget about Brexit, Trump, and violent men with yellow vests.
