Music plays a huge role in our lives but most of us don’t put a lot of effort into finding new shit that isn’t featured on the big radio stations, the general top40 or the main-stage of overhyped festivals. It’s time to share some artists and songs that might have gone by unnoticed but are worth your time.
We all should know pictures like the one to the left. A gathering of great thinkers who, besides looking like bosses, discuss the big problems of society. Although I do not qualify myself to be on the same intellectual levels of the great thinkers, I would love to partake in one of these mind-stimulating get-togethers. The question that remains is obvious: is there a future for it? Read more
It has been announced on our Facebook page that we would start to look into research and science and unravel the bullshit from the truth. Bullshit in science you say? How is that possible? Whenever humans are involved two things will happen: people will cheat or people will make errors. And judging from the way we humans behave in other aspects of our life, It would be rather hypocritical to assume that cases of mass fraud (willingly or unwillingly) are individual cases. Read more
One of the biggest hype words of the past years is procrastination: the art of not doing anything and postponing all that is important. You might think that people who made this their hobby are deemed to become a burger-flipper at a Mac or Burgerking. Think again: professor John R.

One of the most important aspects of life in my opinion is living large while making sure this does not affect others negatively. I don’t give a crap what imaginary figure you believe in, how much money you spend on blow-up dolls & Chinese ‘massages’, or your way of being ecological & green, while using Apple products. Just make sure you don’t annoy the shit out of other people with your behavior. And because this blog is all about educating people, I will run through the most annoying of nasty habits you can have, so you know what you behavior to have to change ASAP. Believe me, the world will be a far better place if you stop behaving like an ego-centric fuck-up and start respecting other people and their ways of living. Read more
I am one of those people who does not watch tv shows 24/7. I couldn’t care less about ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Breaking Bad’. However, once I get hooked to a show that I really like, I have to see all of the episodes. In order to prevent myself from ruining entire days, I will not even give in to the temptation. The only tv shows I will indulge myself in, are the funny yet educative ones. And believe me when I say that there are a fuckload out there that will both entertain you and teach you something that will come in handy to impress your friends in the pub and your father in law at Christmas-dinner.
