The anti-marshmallow test

I bet you haven’t read the book, “The Marshmallow Test” yet. Have you? What rock have you been living under? I suggest that you drop everything right now, and get yourself a copy. Read it, understand it, and make short notes. Once you’ve done that, mail me a copy of...

Belated Reviews: Hitman: Agent 47

First, I have to apologize for the delay in getting this review out; I would have posted this last week, but I was busy looking for a killer-for-hire to take out the movie’s writers. Searching the deep web for sharpshooters is a pain. Especially when all I had to offer was $3.75 and a...

I saw design and it opened up my eyes, I saw design.

Hello, howdy, hi ya, holla, and hey ho to a brand new ‘The Blah Blahs and the Yada Yadas’. Yes. It’s totally brand new… you can practically smell the digital ink drying on this post… if you try hard enough. It’s got that new-site smell that makes you yearn for...

Knocking on Hamish’s Dome

I don’t know if there are people who enjoy visits to the barber. Statistically, I guess there would be some who do – people who revel in the wonderful world of styling, who keep up with the latest fashion trends for the neck up. I am not one to judge – It...

Dissolved resolves

What exactly is new, and when does it stop becoming new? I’d say that depends on the item under question, and how long it can be used. If it’s a soda that’d go flat after the first few minutes of opening the bottle, it could only be called new until...

Happy 2015, everyone!

As anyone with a calendar and a moderate sense of awareness about the world around them can attest, it’s a brand new year. So… Happy New Year, everybody. Cheers, merriment, and well wishes all around. May 2015 be far better than 2014. And no, I’m not talking about the month...

The Neverending Story

When talking of grand endeavors and large scale projects, people tend to think global – building The Burj Khalifa, manning the space station, mining asteroids for minerals, restraining Mel Gibson, punching Justin Beiber… For me, however, the grandest endeavor (incidentally, one that relates to large scales in particular) has always...

All Growed Up

Growing old is inevitable. But growing up is a choice. Not my own – somebody wise said that. I simply endorse the view. It makes sense, you know. But it’s hardly new knowledge. Not a day goes by without someone or the other telling me to grow up. It’s quite...

Smells Like Mean Spirit

The world has been shrinking for quite a while. It has been, for a… No, not in terms of mass or size… Come on, don’t act like you haven’t heard that before. With the blazing pace of human advancement, continents, countries and people have been getting more and more interconnected,...

Brake Dance

They say you never truly appreciate what you have until the day you lose it. It could be anything, from eyesight, to your big toe, to bladder control, to your car keys. This phrase has never rung as clearly as it did for me last weekend. Some of you may...
