My affection, for this virtual coffee shop was poignantly brought to my attention when two dear friends were killed in a tragic traffic accident.

This 'social experiment' leads us to the conclusion we're all total bastards. And I must be a bastard too, because when I see a man with a sandwich board rattling his unsanctioned charity tin without any clue as to which charity (if any) he is working for, I too would ignore him.

Few things are as mind-numbingly political, stupid and awkward than the simple 'x'. Not the one that marks the spot on a treasure map, or the one that ends the words box and fox, but the little mark of appreciation you put at the end of a text or an email to denote a kiss.

If you were asked to draw a scientist, what would it look like? An image resembling Einstein, perhaps? Same question; but this time an engineer. Would you draw a man with a spanner?

There's a reason why there isn't a show called Women V Food because you're conditioned to hog, eat competitively and scoff. We're conditioned to watch what we eat, consider low-fat options and watch our figures. We do consider it a violation in a public place that someone has caught us at a vulnerable moment and decided to broadcast it.

I remember the days when hacking was something that people did because they could. It wasn't quite done for fun, but people wanted to show off their computer skills. More often than not, hacking was harmless, someone broke into a system and left a little calling card, but beyond that there was very little damage done. It was for the thrill as much as anything.
