Am I old?

Reading time: < 1 min

Continuing a vague theme which spawned from a comment… I am a contributor to the Topics Blog, and have been for a few months now (five I think). I just spotted some new names and to my horror I’ve just realised I’m one of the oldest people contributing. I’m holding onto the belief that I’m…

Diets: The Truth

Reading time: < 1 min

Here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans….

OK, every single damn day I get some form of search about the lovely Ms.Gallacher. So without further ado: Kirsty Gallacher. Now don’t say I’m not good to you, and don’t worry, I won’t tell your Mum (if you don’t tell mine…)

Other than it links back to here, ohh and it’s funny, silly and irreverent. What am I talking about? Why Brian Millar’s weblog of course!

Lego

Reading time: < 1 min

I had Lego, a big box of it inherited from my Uncle. It started out innocently enough, building a house, or car, the occasional plane, but it was always under control. I graduated to Lego Technic and things started to spiral out of control. Yeah I started with the basic kits, and built what they…

I’m about to rant, so before I do… Go visit Meg, she will make you laugh: not.so.soft. Go visit Stuart, he will make you think: hydragenic. Go visit Becky, she’ll make you want to move to France: mybluehouse. Go visit, Julie, and wonder when she and Leia will mutuate into one wonderous being: accidental/a large…

Tig, you're it!

What games did you play when you were younger? Hide and seek? Tig? British Bulldog? Hopscotch? My favourite was probably ‘ball tig’. Mainly because I was a lot better at throwing a ball than kicking a ball (born true by my preference for basketball over football). Louise’s birthday yesterday. Quiet day to ourselves. Wandered round…

Or genetic mutation? You decide: Doctors baffled by boy, 6, covered in ape-like hair. “Doctors from Aksay hospital said the boy has surprising mobility, flexibility, sociability, a kind of special intuition and a unique sense of direction.”

Reading time: 2 mins

There are somethings that should be sacred, untouchable. They should be locked away, never to be tainted, altered or, god forbid, ‘updated’. How many hours did I spend glued to the television (ahh so that’s why my brain is addled) watching Cartoon Time and Rolf’s Cartoon Club, absorbing non-PC cartoons into my being. Revelling in…

Did you vote?

This was a crucial time for the world, and I bet half of you didn’t even take the time to vote. Apathy is a terrible thing, I just hope you aren’t one of the people who turn round and complain about the decision. See how the world voted on this crucial topic.

The future is now

Reading time: < 1 min

Covered elsewhere, but this is too cool for words (although apparently not as there are several very wordy articles written about it… oh never mind…). Excuse me, your tooth is ringing. With this, and the Australian scientists managing to ‘teleport’ a light beam, it looks like the ‘future’ is coming closer all the time. So,…
