Dr. Craig Considine, a sociologist at Rice University, has noticed some trends in how people use social media to respond to tragedy. He notes four predictable stages that the average Facebook user goes through surrounding a terror attack: I look forward to the day where this message is no longer relevant or applicable to […]
TOWIE Made In Chelsea Keeping Up With The Kardashians Geordie Shore Not only would I rather wipe my arse with sandpaper than watch any of the above tripe, they’ve informed a generation that it’s perfectly acceptable to trade any ounce of dignity and self respect for minimum wage. They’re full of drama, false or otherwise, […]
Just think about this next time you’re hovering over the post button. People who post Facebook status updates about their romantic partner are more likely to have low self-esteem, while those who brag about diets, exercise, and accomplishments are typically narcissists, according to new research.

It’ll blow your mind. Mr Robot. And it’s got Christian Slater from Broken Arrow… many a happy childhood memory there.
Everybody thinks they have to build fucking Uber. Recalibrate what success looks like. Vaynerchuk is marmite, sometimes I love him, sometimes I don’t… this however is good. Worth a watch.
We’re at a place where the idea of being ‘elite’ is somehow considered a negative. Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly. Incuriousness has become cool… It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me. […]
I still cannot understand the logic behind why there is such an obsession with celebrity in western society today. Such bizarre voyeurism from both the paparazzi and the people who support them. Daily Mail, I’m looking at you. What are we doing? Selling ourselves. Selling everything. The happiest day of my life – oh, […]
I think we’ve been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it’s the government’s job to cope with it: ‘I have a problem, I’ll get a grant.’ ‘I’m homeless, the government must house me.’ They’re casting their problem on society. And, you know, there […]
I say they’re just fucking wankers. I cannot be doing with people like that. It justifies their own bone-idleness because they can’t ever imagine applying themselves to do anything in their lives. It’s easy for them to sit under a pseudonym on Twitter and write that sort of shit, rather than get off their arses […]
Political correctness is the oppression of our intellectual movement so no one says anything anymore just in case anyone else get’s offended. What happens if you say that and someone gets offended? Well they can be offended, can’t they? What’s wrong with being offended? When did stick and stones may break my bones stop being […]
I’d consider myself a realist, alright? But in philosophical terms I’m what’s called a pessimist.
I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law.
We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everbody’s nobody.
I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
Cohle preaches atheistic nihilism like a high priest of downerism.
Here’s the thing. People who believe they’ll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, learn it doesn’t work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. What is it about the white middle class on a gap year. Those who believe they are automatically an asset rather than a hindrance, and the […]
We cannot help but judge others on the basis of their speech. Unfortunately, when it comes to taboo language, it is a common assumption that people who swear frequently are lazy, do not have an adequate vocabulary, lack education, or simply cannot control themselves. The overall finding of this set of studies, that taboo fluency […]
A term used to assign imaginary expertise in a nascent communications field to an individual with little to no real world business experience and the professional integrity of a bowl of banana pudding. Synonyms: Social Media Douchebag, Personal Branding Expert, Conversation Strategist, Social Media Speaker, Best-Selling Social Media Author. Olivier Blanchard
Seriously, is this the best you could come up with. Even with your endless supplies of coffee, facial hair, Aeron chairs and white walls full of post-its… it’s lazy. Really fucking lazy. Let’s take a look at some personal highlights all following the same dire formula. Let’s start with this bag of shite The […]
