Trump says “Hey! What’s going on?!”

By now, few have not commented on Donald Trump and his bid for the highest office in the US. Depending on where you stand on the political spectrum, Trump is either a messiah or the literal reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. Some say Donald Trump is the only one brave enough to say what most people are thinking. Some point out that he’s simply exploiting deep-seated fears to score easy political points.

Search Term Roulette: “Defective superpowers” edition

I believe it was Google’s co-founder Larry Page who once famously said, “Seek and ye shall find!” People have been seeking ever since. It’s not always clear what people are seeking, however.

Then again, I once had an aim to slowly write a serial novel, […]


We all know who the terrorists are

I might offend some people, but it has to be said. I think it’s time we called a spade a spade. It’s very clear from the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut, over Egypt, and elsewhere that all these terrorists have one thing in common: They all wear shoes. I know, I know.
