I've just been informed about that. So many of my favourite artists are going away. That's sad.

First with regards to the possibility of a supernova. If it happens, it could take hundreds to millions of years. Bear in mind our Sun is said to have been once much brighter than it is now and it's still there. Therefore, this is the first reason why people shouldn't go running with their heads in ...

I am not the one who'll tell what other people should do, say or think. Me, I have no sympathy for bastards whoever they are, and I'll feel happy when they go down. If they die in excruciating pain, so much the better. There's no one who'll have a valid argument stating that I should empathise with ...

The aforementioned beverages contain high levels of sodium, which can be harmful if abused. Therefore, I hardly drink them. It's been eighteen months since I last drank any "Ades". Gatorade is the one I like best among those two but any of the "clone" brands are fine by me (as lo...

Short answer: no.
Long answer: though I have skills some say are impressive, I'm no savant. I have dyscalculia as well, which is most severe I'm afraid.

I keep lorry-loads of lists, spreadsheets, text documents of every kind. Some of them date from a long time ago. However, none of those documents is well organised. I simply can't be accurate and organised, I mean, I'm really incapable of. Also, I get sidetracked very easily. While I'm writing about...

To Slug - To Poke (one's privates) If you said you'd slugged someone I'd think you'd punched them. Hi. I think this one depends on the region. I'm certain I've heard that expression with that exact connotation. The girl asked the guy to "stop slugging her". They were kissing, and somethin...

I feel like maybe I should just give up on wanting love in my life now.

If I can make any suggestions, that's exactly what you should do. Forget about love and focus on improving yourself and your life. Don't look for love any more. Shake the idea of love off your mind.

If you succeed - under societal terms - you're an eccentric and a champion.
If you don't, you're mentally ill.

That's how the story goes.

It really depends who the billionaires in question would be but I don't have any particular fondness for wealthy and famous people in general. I am averse to cults of personality. Do they have money? That's good for them. That's all I think. Now, I have to say there must be something very wrong with...
