  1. The Football Rant - Keeping Busy Without Football

    Now then, seeing as there's no football on this won't go on to rant about football, but rather the aspects of life without it. Like many an addiction the abstinence can hit you quite hard, but then slowly gets better. As for myself, I'm keeping busy with procrastinating studying for my exam next week. Normally I would have done that by watching football, but luckily there's a plethora of other things you can do to have your mind focused on something unproductive. I mean I know I really should start ...

  2. The Dude's thoughts - Life at the time of Covid-19

    When I wrote the last chapter of this blog series, I had in mind that fear could be an important element to deal with, due to the upcoming issues with the Covid-19 pandemic...

  4. A Commodian Wit - Common Ground

    I delay a post on education again to discuss a fairly universal, but also universally difficult concept, the Common Ground. Why do I delay? Minutes ago, I walked into a drama that was entirely caused by one party lacking the 'common sense' the other party held. "But Commodus, what's special about someone not having common sense?"

  5. Brewster's final thoughts on his TWC participation through the years.

    Long have I aspired writing something that detailed my great deeds upon this website. Like how HorseArcher told the tale of the last Emperor. Fact remains I never did great deeds on this website so you cannot write about your great deeds if you didn't commit them. So maybe I'll write a bit about my mediocre participation on this board. As now more than ever and yes, I'm aware that I often announced my retirement from the site, the end of my time here really comes near.

    I've had ...
