A side-effect of the coronavirus that nobody speaks about is an obsessive compulsion to watch the news. Since televisual entertainment is getting progressively worse thanks to social distancing, the only channels producing new content on a daily and hourly basis, aside from YouTube is the news. 24-hour news […]
What Went Wrong With… Clapping, Minute Silences, & So-Called Charity Following The Coronavirus Pandemic?
After being stuck in their homes for a few weeks (oh, how difficult 🙄) much of society seems to be going stir-crazy, no longer able to think rationally and logically, at least that’s the explanation I’ve come up with. Surely this many people can’t be this moronic, it […]
After the recent spate of panic buying following the outbreak of COVID-19, my first reaction to seeing shoppers filling their trolleys with hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and soap was similar to everyone else but now that I’ve had time to mull it over, I’m ashamed of my initial […]
A person can be offended by anything; a comment, a joke, a film, a song, a painting, an advert, an idea, even a piece of clothing. The reasoning behind the offence can also be vast from political to personal but no matter the rationale, being offended is part […]
We’re living in a time in which we’re told never to generalise and not to stereotype, and yet the media seems content in putting generations into a box. It seems that everywhere you turn these days, some headline or hashtag will pop-up and tell you what the pissing […]
Apparently, nothing says “I love you” like commemorating a Christian martyr who was executed because he refused to convert to Roman paganism. Let’s face it, whether you think the legend of Saint Valentine is romantic or not (and it definitely isn’t) Valentine’s Day is simply another commercialised celebration […]
Problem, reaction, solution; you hear this term a lot these days, especially in conspiracy theories. A form of the Hagelian Dialactic (thesis, reaction, antithesis) seems to me however, to be taking place in the most unlikely yet obvious sector; in consumer products. If you look at various products […]
If Maths teachers constantly shouted at and belittled their students, would they keep their job? So why do Physical Education teachers get away with it? From my experience as a young child and then later as a teenager, every single P.E. teacher that I came across was woefully […]
We’re living in a time of complete idiocy, nothing makes sense any more. For two decades the masses have slowly accepted any and everything thrown at them; an event takes place that results in legislation that is fundamentally against the ideals of a nation but people accept it […]
An unfortunate and unintentional by-product of an act of terror is highlighting all the morons in our society. The recent Manchester attack brought out all the idiots from the woodwork and like 9/11, 7/7, The Boston Bombing, and the Paris Attacks, it showed us who the fools and […]
Social media was supposed to be a method of connecting the world, where people from all walks of life got together in order to discuss and share their thoughts and opinions. No longer were people from different parts of the world going to feel alone, hey, let’s all […]
There seems to be a growing number of people, especially on the right who reject the idea of Islamophobia; they either say it’s justified since modern-day terrorism is perpetrated by Islamic extremists or that it flat-out doesn’t exist because it’s somehow impossible to be prejudice against a religion […]
What Went Wrong With… The Liberal Bashing Of, The Conservative Praising Of, & The Fans Of Donald Trump?
The public’s fascination with Donald Trump is maddening to watch. As it unfolds like a predictable plot to a second-rate conspiracy thriller, it becomes wearisome to anyone with a sane mind; the right constantly praising him, the left constantly berating him, all the while the rest of the […]
