The dangers of technology

I’m sure many of you have heard about the events at Slane music festival this weekend. Since there are a myriad of blog posts and tweets already offering their opinion (and since we don’t yet know all the facts) I’m going to write about a different aspect – the role of technology. If you’re the … Continue reading

Tell Tale Matilda

I first heard this poem from my granny years ago. Despite my best efforts i couldn’t find it anywhere online. So eventually, I made my mum track down a single piece of paper with it written out: Tell tale Matilda was seven years old, Yet she did not repent as she ought to have done, … Continue reading

Web comics

Gay Marriage Logic

Following on from College Humour’s ‘Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfried‘ video (hilarious and well worth watching), I was reminded of a conversation I had a couple of years ago on the topic. I can’t recall how the subject arose, but it resulted in some surprisingly astute reasoning from a certain gentleman I wouldn’t have … Continue reading

Facebook Friend Suggestion

Interesting development: Facebook is after suggesting a couple of people with whom I have NO mutual friends. More than that, we have no ‘likes’ in common. As far as I can make out, Facebook is randomly suggesting people who live in the same country and are a similar age in the hopes that I start … Continue reading
