  1. Anger sells. It sells big. On the back of games.

    It's not exactly a new principle, but in the last years it has started to overshadow reason and it certainly didn't leave out the gaming industry as this article by Cnet illustrates.

  2. Shopping with my beloved Wife

    After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out.

  5. Winter is coming

    by , September 19, 2016 at 07:06 AM (Tall an' handsome)
    I am not sure if being the hottest year on record had anything to do with the harsh winter that preceded it, but it surely was memorable as a friend of mine told me later:

    On a bitterly cold winter's morning him and his wife were listening to the radio during breakfast.

    They heard the announcer say, “We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through.”
