Open concept design does more than add space to a house, research says

Open floor plan interior design is changing the way homes are being built. These days, the only walls you find in a home are the exterior ones and those surrounding the bedrooms and bathrooms. Otherwise, the kitchen, dining room, den, and living room all tend to blend together into one giant common area.

Letterbomb (Short story)

My sister, four years older than me, has not spoken to me in 12 years. (Of course it is a euphemism for surgically cutting me out of the fibre of her life.) She blames my love for women. She is of the opinion that it is infectious and consequently a threat to her young. I, of course, do not hold such an opinion.

Computer Aided Design - Changing Our Lives Every Day

There was a time, not too long ago, when developing a new product was a chore. Tedious processes of designing by hand, and manufacturing multiple pre-versions of the eventual product, meant that great inventions got stuck somewhere between concept and reality.

The advent of computer aided design (CAD) has revolutionised this process so much that it has infiltrated almost every aspect of our lives. Sure, it is easy to…

How is 3D Printing Going to Change Industry?

3D printing has been around for a while but was limited in terms of the size of printing jobs and the materials that could be printed. That’s no longer the case. Entire houses can be printed, food can be manipulated into weird and wonderful art forms, transplantable…

Faan se trein (movie review)

One can no longer say that a film like Faan se trein is good for “an Afrikaans film”. There are simply too many incredible Afrikaans and South African films available. Thus I have to judge Faan se trein according to international (and South African) standards.…

Winter in Europe

The wife was awarded a residency in Germany over the December holidays. Everyone shivered at the thought of winter in Europe, but we braved it. Yes, it was a little cold, but it had a beauty of its own. Plus, there were no hordes of silly tourists. Bonus.

Great Poossies Deserve Expensive Condoms?

 

At first we battled with the stigma around HIV/AIDS but now there might be another one brewing—that of government Choice condoms. I hear that some prefer them flavored with vanilla or bubblegum odors. However, would you place yourself in harm’s way just because to your girlfriend the free condom says you are making her look cheap? Suggesting that you should BUY condoms in order to portray great sentimental…

Cape Town Roller Girls

I stumbled upon roller derby through my sister-in-law. She’s way cool. She cycled from New Orleans to New York, named her firstborn son Eland and she does flat track roller derby!

 

I see most of you frowning, asking what is flat track roller derby? Well, from what I saw it’s hot chicks on wheels bulleting towards one another! Okay, okay, let me…

Inconvenient Truths

Sometimes I don’t want to think about the future with you. 

Sometimes I want to be with you, but just not in the future. 

Sometimes I wish we could both die young or I could die before I grow old with you. 

Sometimes, when I try to think what it must be like to grow old with you, I feel like I want to drown myself.
