Fact of the Day

Your eyes make about 5.4 litres of tears a year.

Zero Tolerance to Runny Nose

Originally I planned this post to be against refurbished establishments that keep the same smell as the old ones but then I went for a run and ended up with a runny nose and the closest thing resembling a tissue I had on me was my sleeve.  Yes, I confess to wiping snots into my garments. I am so very mature.

I am also very much against racism.

Smart people if you ask me.

Zero Tolerance to Queues

I have truly tried to pick a different topic as I have already covered queues twice. I guess I really have issues with them.

I have also zero tolerance to questionable science and research. As if there wasn’t enough lies and deceiving already.

Oranges are not the only Book

Oranges are not the only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson

 

This is a cute little book. Truthfully, I don’t really get the hype around it. I think I’m from the wrong generation. It is interesting that some things from the past resonate with you more than others. I understand that homosexuality especially put in contrast with religion back in the 60s was a completely different matter than it is now (or is it?) but I think we are so exposed to conflicts on a much larger scale that we have become numb and I think I might be desensitised to the individual struggles of Jeanette in this story.

The average person relocates 11 times.

I am not an average person. Unless my next address ends up being the last one. Currently at #10.

The Book Index

The Fear Index by Robert Harris

 

Hmmm, mixed feelings on this one again. I liked the idea of artificial intelligence running a hedge fund and in the process evolving into a control freak without anyone realising what is happening – the ‘shot down plane’ and the ‘lift doors’ worked well in the book. But I thought the personal attacks on the A.I.’s creator a.k.a cannibal subplot was just weird.

I wish the story was explored in a wider environment and reduced around Dr Hoffman who I found to be very unlikable character. The potential was there but it stayed mostly untouched.  I liked the conclusion though.
