Think on the happiness of this.

Fantastic new research from University of Rochester shows that extrinsic rewards (money, cars, stuff) basically makes us more depressed – it’s called “hedonic adaption”. The research quotes that those focused on the “American dream” are basically the most miserable of all. Happiness = hard, meaningful work on self and social bonds. Either that or poor…

Kids

The lesson I have learnt from young children is: why be difficult when, with a little effort, you can be impossible.

Fat!

All this talk about muscle memory, but you think your fat forgets?

Sunday blues

I don’t have a dog, which means for any kind of valid excuse i basically have to eat my own homework

if only.

I want employees that are like my beard. In the morning you wake up and the work is done

#undateable

My ex and I split over religious differences, he was Catholic and I was Satan.

the Science of Poor

I read a quote from one of the Gucci family who said she’d rather be crying in her Rolls Royce than laughing on her bicycle. Now I realise that money can’t buy you happiness, but I’m also well aware that poverty can’t afford it either. So if anyone can lend me their Rolls, I’d like…

#myshrink

My shrink says I’m a narcissist, which is ironic and irritating because I have to pay him to talk about me constantly for an hour – at those rates, surely he could make up nicer things to say?

Udder confusion

Put a pair of hardy leather boots through a rainstorm and they are ruined. But cows wander freely in the rain and don’t fall apart? What’s that about?
