The Family Unplugged

Every year, for about five full days I go offline. And hands down, these are my favourite five days of the year! Yes of course its Christmas time. Starting on the 23rd my laptop goes in the drawer along with my phone and in the background you can hear distressed voices lamenting : “Mum ! There is something wrong with the internet! Mum my Netflix just froze! Muuuuummmmmm!” Me: “Sorry kids, there must be something wrong with the signal, I will give our service provider a ring, but you guys...

The Wilderness Years: Why Writers Fall Off the Radar and Suddenly Reappear

The Wilderness Years: Why Writers Fall Off the Radar and Suddenly Reappear

Scores of writers have turned and walked away from their craft; sometimes for years on end. When they do return from their multi-year absence, their voice, their style, their subject matter is altogether transformed and most certainly enlightened by days spent doing something else in the world. The period of time between novels can stretch as long as a decade during these wilderness years. Where do writers go and why do they leave?

Thors Hammer

Thors Hammer

Johnnie woke up that morning with a headache that would not quit. He had been up most of the night studying Norse mythology for his history class. Mister Morgan, his Professor, was a buff on the stuff and Johnnie loved mythology of any kind. The ancient myths were kind of parallel to the comic books of today, except with bolts of lightning, chariots and flying horses. But in this case it was more a case of a one-eyed god, Odin, who used his favorite son, Thor, to hammer some sense into the...

He’d already had enough of this but at fifty five he had to hang on that bit longer before he retired. Education had changed, and not for the better in his opinion. When he’d been at school the teachers were like gods. The children respected them, and those that didn’t, knew enough to be...

“Hey guys, I’ve got to run. I need to catch up to that brunette over there, in the blue top. She’s in my history class,” Seth said to his friends. “Oh oh! The tiger’s on the prowl, again,” Ned teased. “Go get her, tiger,” Mike chimed in. “Enough, guys. I’ll see you later,” Seth countered, and jogged slowly off towards the departing classmate. “Hi!” Seth said as he startled the young lady by suddenly appearing at her side. “I’m Seth Kreyasich.

Top 10 books about cheating

21 February 2018 | 5:00 am Books | The Guardian

From illicit James Salter to category-defying Jeanette Winterson, here are the best contemporary works about romantic infidelityWhy do we keep coming back to the adultery novel? What is it about infidelity that bears retelling across the centuries, especially now, when the ancient prohibitions against sex outside marriage have all but disappeared? These are questions I asked myself as I was writing Fire Sermon, the story of a married woman’s physical, intellectual and spiritual affair with a...

Some are comforting myths, designed to naturalize racial hierarchies or dispel the guilt and responsibility of privilege. Others are sociological and historical narratives, which locate the causes of racism in specific times, places and...

Awards for women, writers of colour, small presses – why are there so many books prizes?

21 February 2018 | 7:29 am Books | The Guardian

There are so many literary prizes these days that they could be regarded as an industry in their own right – but they’re needed to change the status quoHow many literary prizes are there in the UK today? To Wikipedia’s tally of around 70, I can immediately add half a dozen more – and still they come. It doesn’t seem too much of an exaggeration to see them as an industry in their own right, involving flotillas of administrators, squads of judges and hundreds of thousands of pounds a...

This novel is a poised meditation on our bodies and the perils of becoming a parentThe man who invented the x-ray, Wilhelm Röntgen, happened upon his discovery by accident, devoting a few weeks to it before moving on. Nevertheless he revolutionised medicine, and changed for ever the way we relate to our bodies. No longer opaque, obscure things, they were now – at this very beginning, in 1895 – more knowable. But this did not mean that they were any less inscrutable. Related: Top 10...

Operation Chaos by Matthew Sweet review – spies, Vietnam deserters and a cult of evil

21 February 2018 | 3:59 am Books | The Guardian

A horribly readable account of the US military deserters who found asylum in Sweden during the Vietnam War, and their group’s infiltration by the CIAIt is almost forgotten now what a decisive role Sweden played in the Vietnam war. Even at the time, the armies doing the fighting and the million or so Vietnamese doing the dying may have underestimated the importance Swedish public opinion had on their struggle. But in Sweden it was never in doubt. The starting point for this weird, sad,...

A Horseshoe Brings Good Luck
by Phil from Omaha, Nebraska USA
like 2dislike 0report 0

The prominent scientist Niels Bohr had a horseshoe hanging over the entrance to his laboratory for good luck. One day a fellow scientist comes to visit, is very surprised to see the horseshoe, and says this:
"Professor Bohr, I am very surprised to see that a scientist of your prominent stature believes in a superstition" To which Professor Bohr replies,
"What superstition? I don't believe in any superstition."
Visitor- "The horseshoe hanging over your doorway. According to superstition it brings good luck."
Bohr-"Oh,that! I don't believe in superstition, and I do not believe the horseshoe brings good luck."
Visitor- "Well then, if you don't believe it brings good luck, why is it hanging there?"
Bohr says this- "They say it brings good luck, even if you don't believe in it."
P.S. It is claimed that Professor Niels Bohr actually had a horseshoe hanging over his doorway.
