The Driest Joke in History
"Knock... knock," he managed to utter, as he lay dying on the desert floor, having gone without water for as long as the human body was capable, in an attempt to tell the driest joke in history.
The Default Option
Saw the following via Avinash Kaushik on Google+. Too good not to share, and on so many levels. It is worth highlighting that the power of the "default option" is a very real one. Organ donation is a good example. Whether organ donation is an "opt-in" (i.e. the default option is not donating), far fewer people... Continue Reading →
I’m an analyst. I analyse.
Tired and socially exhausted after a very nice company dinner (a common predicament for introverts), I was looking forward to some me-time on the taxi home. But it was not to be -- the taxi driver was a little chattier than I'd hoped. Having seen me catch his taxi amongst a group of foreigners whom presumably were my colleagues... Continue Reading →

How to think logically, illogically
Bearded Dragon playing Ant Crusher
Saw this video of [what I think is an iguana?] playing this game on a phone. My first thought was that it was going to ace the game. Didn't do exactly that, but nonetheless played pretty well 🙂
Efficiencies at the Watercooler
My bottle was half-filled with water, but since I'd pass by the watercooler while on my way to the washroom, I decided to fill it up. After filling my bottle to the brim, I took a few gulps and refilled the amount that I'd just gulped down. But for some reason or another, before I... Continue Reading →
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
"You should get out in the sun more," she said, "you're so fair." "Well," I replied, "I like to think of myself as fair. And balanced."
