Dadhood: Week one

Life is an ever moving circus of change. Change, the only constant, is sometimes, good, sometimes bad, and sometimes, so fabulous it deserves a separate category altogether. As of writing this article – or at least beginning this article – I have successfully completed my first week of fatherhood. I...

The Neverending dream

Dreams are fascinating… and mysterious. There is no real consensus on WHY we dream. Is it an evolutionary mechanism to stir us awake every now and then to ward off predators? Is it a spillover of the unconscious processing of the day’s experience? Or is it just a subconscious rebellion...

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...

Noose of the world

For a few days now, I have been toying with the idea of getting into more serious articles. Let’s face it, here at the BBs and the YYs, it is not often that I weild my pen for heavy issues. In fact, in the digital age, it is absofrigginlutely rare...

Tall Storeys

‘Ma arif‘… It is arabic for ‘I don’t know‘… It is a phrase I’m capable of expressing in seven different languages… possibly the handiest phrase of them all. It is a multipurpose, multi-utility, trans-cultural universal time-saver, usable and reusable across different categories of questions. Personally, I use this phrase most...

News Rules

People often walk up right to me and say, “Hamish, stop lying. We never walked up to you and said anything. In fact, we don’t think we even exist in real life. Stop making us up!!” It’s very disconcerting… But after a little bit of such bickering, they end up...

Excuse? Me? Please!

I’ve come to realize a long time ago… Mankind is not looking for solutions. Man is not seeking to better himself. His quest is not for supremacy or superiority; not to enlighten himself; nor to blend in with society; or to fight for truth and justice. No. Man’s ultimate quest...

Nobel Peace SurPrize

Now, it has been a while since I have updated my blog, and gosh darn it if I’m as uncreative as to blame it on the same old excuse of hectic work schedule, but when your clients and the powers that be toss you across the room and bounce you...

Stop! In the name of the law!

Stop me if I’ve told you this before… Actually, I don’t know how in blazes you’re going to stop me. I mean… It’s not like you can set time back to when I started on this article, trace me to where I was sitting, and yank off my keyboard. No....

La Chamelion

“Ok. Stop that.” “Huh? Stop what?” I turned around. I was thrown off course there. Here I was accompanying mom for her appointment with the doctor. We’d just got in the hospital, and had done no more than walk up to the reception. I know I can be irritating at...
