Don`t you dareRead More →

Happy North Koreans

We are ungrateful sons of biscuits. Yes, all of us. Some are obviously daughters, but whatever. You may be wondering why you are dedicating some of your precious time to read this article but all I do is insulting you. Firstly, it wasn’t even that offensive. Secondly, you should be thankful, because I`m trying to open your eyes here. We don’t realize that things which we consider to be our simple daily routine can be strictly forbidden in some other country. We never think that we are practically blessed with an opportunity to say our thoughts out loud and in a free manner. You wakeRead More →

Friend Zone Sign

According to a study, young people experience their first serious relationship being 18 and 21 years old, and it is the same time they go through the first soul-destroying break-up. You may say, “Wait, so that time when a boy got me a fluffy teddy bear in the 6th grade cannot be considered a serious relationship? But it had a pink bow on it!” Well, no, that doesn`t really count. Psychology cannot define what serious relationship between partners may actually mean. For example, I was married when I was at the kindergarten at the age of five. Turned out, my at-that-time husband had four otherRead More →

What if it`s some kind of the sign and I am supposed to be fully prepared? There is this villain in every Harry Potter book, but there is none in the dream book. Ok, Google… You`d think that superstitions are simply non-existent in the 21st century. However, a lot of people can`t help but follow certain rules suggested by supernatural powers. If you think that by doing that SamRead More →

Penguins

Oh, there is a bird on the tree. I wonder how came that they never fail to find their way back home after flying away for winter? Have they ever seen snow? Do penguins’ feet get cold after standing all day long on ice? Which icy cocktail should I get now? Does the word “cocktail” really comes from “a tale of a cock”? I should definitely Google it. One more time, what I was doing? Right! I was writing an article for you. Guess what? It`s about procrastination. It`s the condition when your brain is willing to think about anything, but something useful and necessaryRead More →

Do you know that running gag from “The Big Bang Theory”? No, not the one that everything was created with a huge blast of hot dense material. Or if you believe in all-mighty power, it`s okay as well.

All right, I will give you the gist so you will not fall out from the conversation we have. All characters in this TV-show are the doctors. Not the “you-have-flu-go-home” kind, but the science guys.Read More →
