As someone who used to work in the fast food world of McDonalds I am at this time, very tiresome of their food. It no longer tastes of anything.

After a short trip to one of their chains today for a spot of lunch, as I was in a hurry I picked up a large Quarter Pounder with cheese meal.

The State Of My Town

This is probably going to come across as extremely controversial but it is something that has to be said. Now I love the area in which I live, but it just pisses me off at the best of times. Coming home from the noSWeat building last night was absolute hell.

A Day In The Life Of A Market Researcher

“Hello there, my name is Scott Hammond and I am calling on behalf of…” that’s about as far as I get into my sentence as I sit aimlessly in my little blue booth. A computer screen in front of me, meaningless pieces of paper scattered across my desk and a headset to accompany my telephone.

Da Vinci Code Offensive?

I have just recently sat down and tried very hard to watch the screen adaption of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and I have to admit, its not all that great.

There were some pluses that came out of the film though.

You Know It's Fake, Right?

Now, at my age it would seem to be a bit embarresing to admit, but I am going to say it anyway, I am a bit of a wrestling fan.

Now, there more people out there that hate it, rather than like it, but I am one of those people who can actually sit down (sometimes) and watch it. It can be boring at the best of times, but people just need to look at it as a type of soap opera.

Celeb X Factor-Making A Mockery Of A Mockery.

Now this really grinds my gears.

There are things in this world that are barely tolerable, things like Big Brother and Meet The Barkers. The fact is that they can be tolerated.

One of the things that is not tolerated in this country is the bloody X-Factor. Now I only speak for myself but looking at the story published on this site by Elizabeth Simpson, it is obvious that I am not alone in my hatred of this complete and utter waste of TV time.
