50 Shades of Crap

Everyone around the office, online, and on the bus has been talking about 50 Shades of Grey as if it is some kind of fantastic racy novel. Ohhhh so erotic. So, I decided to break down and read it, and luckily I didn’t actually pay for it as I would have been pissed if I had.

To be honest, which is why I have a anonymous blog, it has got to be one of the worst pieces of writing I have ever attempted to read.

Would a 15 year old actually know what the original AT&T stood for, and if they did would they have any idea what a telegraph actually is?

i used to be able to attend a concert without seeing half the audience on their iPhones throughout the show. There was a time that we could visit a friend who valued sound quality over convenience when listen…

Mohawk Guy

Further proof of what is wrong with this country. The latest Mars rover lands and the first link on CNN, or when searching google images about the rover is a guy with a mohawk.


Billion dollar science project on another planet, or some due with a mohawk?
