Do Not Put Anything In The Toilet

This struck me as so amusing, it really did.

I guess communication is all about getting the message across, the desired message, and I’m really not sure it worked in this case.

I mean not anything? Really?

You think?

I’ve Been Around The World

It’s a rather amusing title but nonetheless true in many ways. Well not quite literally true in this case but almost.

No, I wanted to tell you that I’ve been around The World, the ship, the huge mighty vessel that sells apartments for 1 million a go! Yes, it’s true these pictures are of The World, the home from home, berthed in Falmouth, as it seems to from time to time.

Being a water/boat/nut (and also helping out a mate and his boat hire business) I nipped out and took a couple shots.

If you had a spare million bucks would you buy an apartment on a ship that has no “home”?

Quite an impressive thing isn’t it?

What Colour Are Your Eyes?

I know this is a bit daft, but then what content isn’t? I could be guilty of filling the Internet up with nonsense but I think there is enough space to go around. 🙂

I took this picture last year not long after eye surgery, and well, I’m only putting it here today as a conversation starter … quite what that conversation is I’m not sure, maybe you have some ideas?

What colour are your eyes, got any good shots of your own?

Old London New London

I took this picture as I was walking back to Liverpool Street Station from the Brick Lane area. What struck me was the contrast between the old and new. It’s very apparent a lot of work is being carried out around this area and in many ways it is a real shame some of the old buildings (OK, they ARE knackered) are getting pulled down.

That tall tower looks really thin doesn’t it? It isn’t of course, but I like how it looks thin in this image.

Ribs Break

It’s one of those moments we all have when we realise that, actually, we are mere mortals.. hmm no, that sounds terrible I’m always aware of that. What I mean is I have broken one of my ribs and it hurts like buggery.

How did I break it and why am I telling you?

The first bit of that is easy, I fell while on a boat, the decks were slippery after me having cleaned them and, well, I bloody slipped. I’ve been helping a friend out with his business Falmouth Boat Hire, which is a long story in itself (I’ll tell you about another time), but yes I fell over about 5 feet and my ribs (the ones towards the back) took the impact, and DOINK one broke… ouch…

These things do fix in motion apparently. It reminds me of when I broke a collar bone playing rugby.It was equally as painful and the world becomes equally as slow. To be honest I suppose part of me enjoys that slowness, the forced paced that simply take control. It’s impossible to move quickly due to the pain, but with slow movement it’s manageable.

I’m sure I was going to be much more philosophical about my break but it seems not. I am glad however I have rediscovered my blog and that you are reading it, we used to have a lot of fun around here. So maybe that’s it, maybe the point of me sharing this is just that it’s an opportune moment to re-ignite my blog, so we get to know each other again.

Could be eh?

15 Guitarists

The rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen guitarists that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I’m interested in seeing what guitarists my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note — in the ‘tag’ line.)

So, here are my 15.

Games for Learning

More than cool!

An excellent video about using games for learning, indeed the author of this video really spells it out in a very obvious way.

Do you have a successful social life (online) ?

Well for me I can say that I created a start-up, grew it, sold it, entirely using "social" media. 
I use the term social here loosely, as I consider the use of it in recent years as somewhat late and misrepresentative of prior art. The Internet has always been social by default, we've always had emails and  forums which are by nature all about being social around arguments and debates. – not to mention chat rooms and bulletin boards.
My start-up was a distance learning school, completely online. We used zero off-line advertising, zero paperwork, zero central offices, zero anything relating to off the Internet, in fact we didn't even use the telephone, and banking was all electronic. 
So for me I can state a resounding yes to your title. – but I would refrain from including the last couple of months/years buzz about social networks (facebook + twitter et all) as being the dogs bollocks of social media, nothing new here really, they all stand on the shoulders of giants.

Drug Names

In pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic
name. Example, the trade name is Tylenol and it’s generic name is
Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called
Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful
consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced
that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also
considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and
of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in
liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage
suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to
literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call
this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of
‘cocktails’, ‘highballs’ and just a good old-fashioned ‘stiff drink’.
Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast
implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer’s research. This means
that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky
boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do
with them.

If you don’t send this to five old friends right away there will be
five fewer people laughing in the world.
