Taste Test: Gerolsteiner Natural Mineral Water

Other than oxygen, the single most important thing we put into out bodies is water. Water consumption is one of the greatest indicators of our health; if you drink lots of water, generally speaking, you are of better health. In 2015 the bottled water industry was valued at $185 billion (US), and is forecast to … Continue reading Taste Test: Gerolsteiner Natural Mineral Water

Less Testing Does Not Mean Fewer Cases

I have read far too many news articles with quotes of officials stating "we have more cases because we have done more testing", and it is really bothering me. I've tried to ignore it, because I'm sure there are better explanations out there, from far smarter people than me; but I just can't anymore. I … Continue reading Less Testing Does Not Mean Fewer Cases

“Down to Earth”

I love shows about nature and space. Learning about our planet and others; about space exploration, and the technology that does it. Its addicting to me. I've spent whole weekends watching everything I could find on Netflix. I binge watched Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and the BBC Planet Earth series. I've watched shows on the … Continue reading “Down to Earth”

I Had a Bad Day

Wednesday was a bad day. Or, at least, Wednesday morning was bad. If you’ve been reading my blog you may already know I have a serious self confidence problem.

Capitalism is Broken

We’ve all heard the number 1 billion, but have you ever really considered how much $1 billion actually is. Consider this: I imagine most of us have spent $1,000 in one go before. Maybe a smart phone, laptop, new tires for your car, TV, whatever! It was probably a pretty painful day; $1,000 is a … Continue reading Capitalism is Broken

Celebrities, Stalkers, and Social Media

I follow a bunch of celebrities on social media. Probably not as many as a lot of people though, because I have a special rule for which celebrities I follow: Who would be cool to sit down and have a beer with? Of course this is highly subjective, not everyone would like to hang out … Continue reading Celebrities, Stalkers, and Social Media

Joe Rogan & Cancel Culture

I saw a news article the other day about Joe Rogan and some controversy over things he and a comedian friend said on a podcast years ago, and I rolled my eyes. I figured it was online backlash about something stupid he tweeted, on the lines of James Gunn’s and (more recently) Hartley Sawyer’s, that … Continue reading Joe Rogan & Cancel Culture
