Bewildered and Bemused

Oh, Harriet, what was your secret?

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Oct 1, 2006 - 10:00:00 PM

And it seems that those who might have been bothered by Harriet’s looks were not around long enough for Harriet to fret about what they were thinking.

  Never Let Them See You Puffing

Of course, it always looks so much easier in the movies. Smoking did not seem to be connected with any such discomfort when viewed from afar.

Brought to you by the letter R

I have a feeling that since you belong to those natural, effortless “R-pronouncers” it makes you feel kind of smug, doesn’t it? You think you’ve got one on me, don’t you?

  Drink to Your Health with Beer and Coffee

All we have to do is fight one bad habit by indulging in another and in no time at all they cancel each other out.

The conspiracy on the highway

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Jul 30, 2006 - 3:12:00 PM

I suspect, there must be these twelve sinister men in dark suits – the ones imbued with sinister hypnotic powers – sitting somewhere directing it all.

  Counting calories leaves husband short on sustenance

There seems to be a law that once the lady of the house makes up her mind to go on a diet, everyone within the vicinity must automatically go on one too.


Beam me up, Scotty - Earth is too jaded

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Jun 4, 2006 - 1:45:00 PM

This might be a gigantic galactic conspiracy, involving a certain milieu in various governments in conjunction with the aliens lulling us into believing that we are alone in space.

  If barbequing, too many beers can spoil the cook

By Wolfgang Niesielski on May 21, 2006 - 1:07:00 PM

Now the season of outdoor barbequing is upon us again, and even though most reasonable folks try to be sensitive to gender-equality, for some reason the responsibility for cooking shifts towards the male member of the family as soon as food preparation ventures to the outdoors.

No need to take backseat literally

In order to assure greater success it helps to be related to the driver. As a matter of fact, the closer the backseat driver is related to the driver, the quicker the guarantee of watching such a driver get picked up by “the friendly folks in white coats”.


  Fortuneteller obsolete with mother's advise

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Apr 9, 2006 - 2:38:00 PM

Since Mom can predict easily what's in store for you, you can save your hard-earned money on a fortune teller. On the other hand, there might be something she missed a true professional soothsayer would see, like your lengthy luck-line. Better check again, perhaps you already are holding the key to love and fortune in the palm of your hand.  



Age-old question requires modern response

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Mar 26, 2006 - 1:59:00 PM

Is entrusting small infants to airborne animals really the prudent thing to do? Could we perhaps change the transporting procedures to a more state-of-the-art outfit? Or should we, maybe, rethink the entire story?

 

 

 

 



  Birdspeak: Just call it chirping communication

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Mar 12, 2006 - 2:28:00 PM

Birds are geniuses when it comes to languages. But are they lost in translation when it comes to communicating with us?

What we watch on TV should be lost in space

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Feb 26, 2006 - 1:55:00 PM

If beings on planets far, far away can't stand our TV programming, why should we put up with it?

  Sports would be different if animals had the upper hand

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Feb 12, 2006 - 2:14:00 PM

Reporting on sporting events, especially the kind involving animals, would be quite different if these critters themselves were in charge of PR and coverage.

 



Answering the call of whales, aliens, telephones

Communication decaying due to excessive moisture puts a damper on enjoying one’s Sunday morning coffee as well, especially when interrupted by sea-creature and mechanical aliens.

 



  We are all masterpieces awaiting discovery

Think twice about throwing things away. Perhaps the one item you carelessly discarded might have been the key to eternal fame and fortune.   



Gadgets, gismos and doodads

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Dec 18, 2005 - 2:11:00 PM

At once, engaging my failing memory, I clicked through a variety of names trying to find someone who might be a candidate for this Salad Shooter. Presumably it might seem perfect for a vegetarian, but perhaps one should be cautious if he or she has issues dealing with anger.  

  The Aliens Among Us

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Dec 4, 2005 - 2:52:00 PM
aliens.jpg
You are not alone in thinking the person on the road behaving like a raving lunatic is probably a creature from another star-system. More than likely he or she is. Who else would actually tail-gate another traffic participant a foot or two removed from the bumper on the freeway? The answer is, only an alien who has yet to learn the terrestrial lessons of velocity, steel and the frailty of human bones, of course.

Learning valuable lessons from experiment in pet ownership

One learns quickly that a healthy digestive system of one's pet could mean added items to a mounting list of chores.



  One day at the gym

Why shouldn’t you be able to unbutton your shirt and reveal a bronzed set of steely strings of muscle in your midsection?

Are Women Cleaner Than Men?

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Oct 23, 2005 - 1:42:00 PM

But that is not to say that men are the cleanest, most hygienic species on earth. On the contrary, soap and water seems to many males what sunshine is to snowmen. Too much exposure appears to threaten their very existence.

  Both Dining Out or Eating In Can Be Feast or Famine

By Wolfgang Niesielski on Oct 9, 2005 - 1:25:00 PM

Consider yourself lucky if you find a waiter or waitress who is not offended by the fact that you are sitting in his or her station waiting to get served.
