Question of Necessity

It’s hard enough managing a multinational company without worrying about, say, whether your offices have enough greenery. Still, it seems that this is something we’re supposed to be taking into account nowadays, and failing to do so counts as workplace negligence. Of course, I’m keen to support employee wellbeing, but there’s a line where it’s …

Working? At WORK?

Gary is just the kind of boss this office needed, and I hate it. Sandrine was bad, no doubt about it. Then we had new Sandrine, who I barely count as the same person, and she was too nice. Everyone got what they wanted, but no one really did any work in the end. We …

The Plane Drain

I wouldn’t have thought that plumbing on a boat or ship was very complicated. Pull a lever, it all goes down. You could potentially get away with the same thing on a plane, although you’d have to restrict it to when you’re travelling over the water. But nope. As we enter the second hour of …

The Open Seas

I know I had a, um… sheltered life growing up. Which is to say I wasn’t often allowed outside the house, and was thus pretty sheltered, especially living in that cupboard. But this weekend, I finally did something I’d wanted to do since I was a child: I went on a boat. Yep. I’d never …

That’ll Do, Car

Cars are just everywhere in games nowadays. Cars and cameras. Every single video game is giving you the ability to take photographs at any time, and they’re also providing you with a car right off the bat so you can explore one of a gajillion open worlds, which aren’t getting old at all.  Personally I …

Infinity Social Increase!

Odd-Match sure has been a blessing to my social life. I used to talk to no real human people outside of life, and now I talk to… um… hang on a moment. According to a percentage calculator, that would be an increase of infinity. Times two! I don’t know, but I have two friends now, because …

Sliding Fun Times

I wonder if it’s possible to make a house that’s one giant cave. I can see why it’s not usually an option, of course. You’d need a space the size of a warehouse, to start off. The ventilation would be extremely difficult, as would the issue of dust. And if everything was so open, would …

That Italian Kitchen

If you ask me – not that anyone ever does, but IF you asked me – then I’d say that animation is superior to live action. In fact, I think that’s where everything is eventually headed: you’ll have your ultra-realistic CIG on one side, your cartoon animation on the other end of the scale, and …

The Power Suit

The power required to run a mech suit is pretty immense, or so it would seem. I thought we could get away with just stuffing the power compartments of every single suit with dozens and dozens of AA batteries. I wasn’t going to be super cheap and use AAA,  unless I had to. But it’s …

Just A Boat

Boats: what, pray tell, is the go? What I mean is, why do people get so obsessed with them? When it comes down to it, they’re just like cars but without the wheels. Granted, you can’t use cars to cross bodies of water. But then, you can’t use boats to cross stretches of solid ground. …
