    I had a long, quite in depth discussion with a friend today regarding marriage. She was a firm believer in the institution of marriage and what it stands for. She believed that if you are going to spend the rest of your life with someone then you should get married. I disagreed with her. I'm not...

    If you could learn any language...

    ...apart from Japanese, what would you pick and why? I'm a bit stuck because my heart says French (i know a little - tres miniscule) because i find it such a sexy language...especially with women (there's logic there i swear) but my head says Spanish because it's the place i visit most often...

    Money Vs Happiness

    If like me your stuck in a dead end job that bores you out of your tiny little skull :20: however, it pays the bills. I was speaking with my girl today (actually i think i was more wallowing in self pity) and she said get a job that makes you happy, don't worry about the cash. She said that...

    A Personal Account of the London Attacks (07/07/2005)

    Yesterday I saw the most horrific scenes in London that I have ever seen. Being of an age where I don't remember (or rather recollect) the IRA attacks or the fire at Kings Cross station what I saw was really my only account of terrorism in London. I am forever thankful that I wasn't directly...

    Philosophical Question Number 11

    After a slight break from these questions (with thanks to Mycernius for keeping them going), I return with one that really does interest me. As Dr Martin Luther King Jr infamously once said "We hold these truth's to be self evident, that all men are created equal". And that bring's me on to my...

    Brighton Rocks

    For anyone wanting a bit of "London-on-sea" i would recommend Brighton. Treat it like a major city, ie; there is some povety, some dirty little scroats, graffiti...but something about the place, i don't know what it just has a charm about it. People hate it, people love it...but in my...

    Philosophical Question Number 6

    This one is a little wacky and maybe a little more jovial than the others (sort of!). I wanted a slightly more light-hearted question to float around the forum. "You, and you alone know that the planet will cease to exist in 48 hours. (In a quick and painless way). What would you do with your...

    Philosophical Question Number 5 (996 to go eh, Lexico!)

    I think this question depends more on people's beliefs and opinion rather than solid fact. "What happens to you after you die?"
