Cardio Fitness, People

As much as I like the idea of gaming becoming immersive enough to have people running around on hamster balls wearing headsets, I have to say that I don’t think people have really thought it out. And really, just now, think it out. If gaming is as addictive as is it now, then gamers are …

Settling Down??

I’m seriously worried about Chad. And while we’re at it, I’m not so sure about my other friend Chad, either. There was a big meeting the other night that I was supposed to be at, but my car broke down and I was coming from Mornington, and my phone had fallen down a drain so …

Unappreciated Plumbing

Drains are an unacknowledged hero in our society. They exist beneath the surface as silent servants, only seeming to exist when something goes wrong. But blocked drains are rare, and usually the fault of the owner. Here are just a few reasons why the humble drain makes our lives so much easier- and why we …

A Roadworthy Union

I used to think I was the only person I knew who’d memorised the entire Roadworthy Certificate Regulation Handbook – every single edition since the RWC was invented.

Congrats to Jeff

Things were right back to basics for the finale of The Great Australian Trade-Off, and I can see why. This season has been a bit of a weird one in terms of ratings, reception, all of that. And it’s all down to the weird, non-tradie things they’ve made people do. So we get to the …

My Frosted Dwelling

What’s the point of being fabulously wealthy if you can’t do silly, avant-garde things with your money? I’ll freely admit that I’m rather bored, and this fills my time. You see what happens when you inherit billions of dollars, you’re making more every day, you’ve got a huge house and a private cruise ship and …

Solar in the City

It really is strange what people will go to see at the theatre nowadays. Now, I’m all for representation in movies and all, but if I was part of the specific demographic seen in ‘Crazy Rich Locals’, I’m not sure how I’d feel. All those rich locals, who are also crazy, spending money on elaborate …
