But this year comes a scientific breakthrough of far greater complexity and more global significance than any of them. Finally, in 2013, the Read more...

The Three Worst Threesomes

Posted 5:18pm Sunday 3rd March 2013

The threesome demands respect. Like yoga pants it has the potential to go very, very well, or very, very badly.

How Wack Is Crack?

Posted 9:40pm Sunday 24th February 2013

Poor, poor methamphetamine. It’s the Tourism of the drug world – condemned, stigmatised, and used by the dregs of society. Despite a vast array of fresh-faced, apple-cheeked ambassadors, including the Luftwaffe, Antonie Dixon, and that dilapidated whore from Breaking Bad, it’s been Read more...

The Good Book

Posted 5:01pm Sunday 30th September 2012

There are many things in the world that simultaneously confuse and disgust me.

Personal development guru Tony Robbins is famous for breathlessly rhapsodising to lumpen Wal-Mart shelf-stackers that the fastest route to career success and satisfaction is to find something you love doing, and make it your job. I spend most of my time lying in bed with the curtains drawn jerking Read more...

The Dunedin Dictionary

Posted 5:13pm Sunday 8th July 2012

The only thing worse than hearing people casually fling around trendy words and phrases you’ve never heard of is realising you’re so out of touch you still use the word “trendy”. Luckily, help is at hand in this blatant Urban Dictionary ripoff, which handily explains a few of the terms you might Read more...
