Drastic D.I.Y.

 

The sad events which occurred in Florida recently are a real wake-up call if you are thinking about making improvements to a rickety old elevator without consulting a professional first. A lady was crushed to death by her disabled best friend’s 17-year old machine which was haphazardly put together from the remains of an old forklift, and her boyfriend has been left grief-stricken by this terrible tragedy. This is an extreme case of course, but just goes to show what ...

Education, Education, Education

 

Students will soon be descending upon all major cities and towns once again as there will be a huge influx of freshers infiltrating universities across the land, so you had better brace yourselves! It is ever such an exciting experience when you embark on a three year course at college as you will meet all sorts of colourful and interesting individuals, whilst hopefully getting an education along the way. Parents will no doubt worry about the hijinks which their offspring ...

Face Your Fears

 

Some people refuse to board aeroplanes as they are completely and utterly petrified of heights, and even a million quid would not persuade them to bite the bullet and strap themselves into their seats. The promise of a luxury foreign holiday is not enough to tempt those that are truly terrified of being up in the air thousands of feet above ground level without any sort of guarantee that they are completely safe. There are places which one can visit ...

Service with a Smile

We rarely use our legs as a means of travel as there are so many more convenient ways to get around. If you want to go shopping in Manchester then you can always use the Metroshuttle to get around the thriving, bustling city centre as opposed to walking to and from the Arndale, Printworks and Triangle. It is such a useful mode of transport as it is completely free and a much simpler way to avoid all of the throngs ...

Create a Brand-New Concept

 

We all love to be inventive and come up with innovative ideas as opposed to just going with the flow and following the crowd. People who tend to do what others tell them to do have no mind of their own and will never stand up for themselves when they disagree with a decision. If you are one of those types who keeps things hidden under their hat and does not speak up when they want to challenge someone then ...

A Sticky Situation

 

You are driving down a busy main road jam-packed with traffic at rush hour on your way to work, praying that the gridlock will clear once you reach the centre of town. It is already ten to nine and you are late enough as it is, so any further delays would be extremely frustrating. The cars all seem to be standing stationary and you have not moved for over 15 minutes, which is not a good sign at all. When ...

How Times Have Changed

 

A lot of people of a certain age do not understand the ins and outs of modern technology and what it involves. You are called up constantly by your father who does not have a clue how to surf the Net or use his brand new iPhone 5, as he is more familiar with using more old fashioned equipment. There are so many different gadgets and gizmos around at the moment that it is nigh on impossible to keep up ...

How Embarrassing!

 

Everyone has stories to tell which make them cringe whenever they look back on them. Embarrassing incidents happen to us all, and are probably best either kept under wraps or divulged with a healthy sense of humour. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then no one else will. Having a good old giggle at unfortunate incidents which occur on a daily basis is such a tonic if you are feeling frustrated or angry, and you will avoid humiliation if you ...

Follow the Leader

 

There is a rather interesting programme being broadcasted on Channel 4, which documents how people behave if they are put in an awkward situation. ‘Eye-Spy’ has proved to be a huge ratings hit, as everyone seems to act differently if they are placed in a position where they have to either do the decent thing or else be sneaky and devious. Human nature is a funny old business, as so many of us see ourselves as honourable and honest, but ...

No Laughing Matter

 

Well, well, well! What have we here? Some cheeky young scamp has moved the entire contents of a co-worker’s office in the night and put them in an unsuspecting elevator. The desk; the drawers; even the printer; the whole kit and caboodle! How funny is that? I’m sure that the intended recipient of the joke found it less humorous when they came into work only to discover that they did not have anywhere to sit. They had already been hassled ...
