Wine tasting is bullshit. Here’s why.
The human palate is arguably the weakest of the five traditional senses. This begs an important question regarding wine tasting: is it bullshit, or is it complete and utter bullshit?

Reshared post from +Alex Lindsay

Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and frequently humorous. Winston Churchill loved them.

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

6. War does not determine who is right – only who is left.

7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

9. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

10. In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, Notify:' I put 'DOCTOR'.

11. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

13. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure..

14. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

15. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

16. You're never too old to learn something stupid.

17. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one.?

BioShock Infinite

Just finished my third and final play-through of BioShock Infinite. What a great game!

It’s the follow-up to the well-received BioShock and BioShock 2, both of which were set in a city at the bottom of the ocean. BioShock Infinite is set in a city in the sky!

My first playthrough was on Normal difficulty, straight run-through enjoying the story and game-play. It took about a week. Next was 1999 Mode, tougher enemies, less health, much, much harder. It took about two weeks, with the final battle taking all day – can’t say how many times I died and got dumped back to the main menu. Finally, I decided to play again on easy to enjoy the story again without risk of death around every corner. This only took one day and I managed it without dying at all.

The story is engaging and the ending is amazing and thought-provoking. Combined with excellent game-play it must rank as one of the best games of all time.

I played it on a PlayStation 3 – it’s also available on Xbox.
