Terror in the Skies (or why I don't fly "muggle" class...)

Let me start by pointing out that I'm not a particularly good passenger. Be it a car, train, boat or plane, unless I'm at the controls I don't enjoy it, not one bit.

I'm also a snob.

As such, for me flying with a budget airline can be a thoroughly unpleasant experience. However, a trip to America back in 2000 was worse than anything even I could have imagined.

The Hypocrisy of Religion

I never cease to be amazed by the hypocrisy and twisted views of many of the religious people I encounter. They seem to be so blinded and blinkered by their faith in deity of choice that they forget what it means to be "good people"; a few days ago I experienced some particularly stark examples of this behaviour.

How to Lose Followers on Twitter and Facebook.

Like most people, every so often I like to clean up the list of people I follow on the various social networks. There are a number of reasons why I will unfollow someone, and as such I found I was curious about what made other people unfollow/remove someone from their social feeds. Do people have the same reasons to unfollow someone of Twitter that they do on Facebook for example?

I decided to find out...

Terror at Disney World! (Or why I don't do water slides any more)

Have you ever experienced genuine terror while on a theme park ride?

I have, and I'm not talking about the fun "fear" you get on Disney’s “Tower of Terror” or the vertical drop on “Oblivion” either. I’m talking about real, honest to goodness, "Sweet baby Jeebus, I am about to die!" terror.

I was with some friends at Blizzard Beach in Walt Disney World, Orlando and after some lazing around in the tubes and riding some of the easier slides we decided it was time to tackle Summit Plummet, one of the tallest, fastest, water slides in the world.
