Random Police and Shrek Rants

Police. Sometimes I question their powers of deduction. I was reading an article in the Oxford News today, and it was about the discovery of a decapitated man in the grounds of a golf course. When the Investigating Officer was interviewed, he confirmed that the victim was dead, and said that they were treating the death as suspicious. ...more

Mall Madness

Mob Mentality: large numbers of people acting in the same ways at the same times.  Often blamed for concert riots, car burnings, tramplings, and other explosive actions for which no coherent thought process can be discerned.  It’s a phenomenon that spreads across ethnicity, location, background, and, of course, age. I brought my two-year-old twins to the mall yesterday.  It was the third time they’d ever been to a playland, and they’re beginning to feel at home in those surroundings – a result that I expected, but not one that I particularly like. ...more

Inception; Have we all lost our minds?

Christopher Nolan's movie, 'Inception' projects an engaging psychological approach to the human mind. After two hours and twenty-two minutes, I walked out of the theatre lost in another's reality. My conclusion to the overall concept of the plot? There is no plot. This is not your average story and there are three things that this movie provided me,1. The human mind is vast and complex 2. There is no reality without hope or 'dreams'. 3. As humans our internal drive is to create a 'homeostasis' which relieves us from pain and suffering....more
