An African Miracle – Perspective Corrections

“Another day, another impala”, thought Kefir. “Jeez! Sure, it’s great to have food again, but come on… how about some variety?” He harrumphed as he grudgingly munched on his impala. Variety or not, he wasn’t stupid enough to go hungry on principle. You… seem confused. Right. Maybe a bit of preface...

Pee-brained idiots in flight

Human knowledge is a wonderful thing. Our entire civilization is built on information; with every generation, people collectively know more and more about everything by adding on to the wealth of knowledge gathered by our ancestors. At some point in human history, I imagine Oog the caveman decided that the...

Thoughts Must Be Crazy

As someone who’s been shot and killed several times, I often wonder whether this makes me an expert in spiritualism or the ‘world beyond’; does it make me noteworthy at all, or does it get diluted by the fact that my death and revival has only happened within video games?...

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...

Organic farming… or farming on your organs

Marriage-ment by Guessing Around

I just bought a brand new laptop. I don’t really know how it looks like, I don’t know the configuration, and I don’t really know how much it cost me. All I know is that I have indeed bought a laptop, and that my buddy, Nash, feels it was a...

Life in a faster lane…

There is no doubt about it. We live a fast world. We are obsessed with an overwhelming need to save time. We want fast cars, fast food, express freeways, accelerated growth plans, quick answers, speedy remedies, executive summaries, swift justice, express deliveries, snappy comebacks, instant messages, quick routes, minimal delays,...

Saving Face – For Your Eyes Only

Ok, I’ve thought about this long and hard. I think I’ll do it. I’m going to trust you with a secret. But shh… not a word to anyone. Like I just said… It’s a secret. It’s a teeny tiny incident that happened a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t told...
