My local TV station has been showing World Science Festival, TED, and some other science shows. It’s fascinating to hear the accepted theories on how the universe was created, stars, black holes etc. From what I understand our universe is thought to be a little under 14 billion years old, which is a staggering length of time …

One of the most memorable lines from “The Interview”, which I have to say, even with a British sense of humour, was a movie that made me laugh. Humour can make even the most serious topics bearable ! Beyond the … Continue reading You Hate Us Cause You Anus – Don Charisma’s Opinion
Do we visit blogs to be enlightened ? To be entertained, delighted, surprised, amazed or aroused ? To promote yourself ? To make a connection with another human being ? To make friends ? Because it’s the same old shit … Continue reading Why Visit A Blog ? – Don Charisma’s Opinion

In the good old days to get a self-portrait out of camera, you had to either be very dexterous or ask a passer-by. The passer-by option was a little risky in some places, because thieves might just run off with … Continue reading “The Wand Of Narcissism” – Don Charisma’s Opinion
