    At a first glance I rarely questioned the existence of the ‘seen’ feature. Soon it became a highlighted rebuttal in the majority of my conversations. I thought it was useful. I felt the lack of invisibility was subtly reduced and I become more at ease with a response in due course. But my opinion has changed.

  3. Brilliant speech. This is my brief list of bizarre things I also want to get done along the way:

    Design a chair
    Re-invent the umbrella
    Do stand-up
    Write a movie script
    Be an extra in a block-buster
    Get a book published
    Make something go viral
    And so on, and so forth…

    If you live in Dublin or have ever taken the Luas you’ll be familiar with their advertising / Tram Time display posts. Typically they have two of these positioned on both ends of every station platform, that’s makes four per platform. Now, with up to four separate lines (and growing) accounting for roughly 54 stops, there could be approximately 215 of these display posts littered around Dublin. If we say the average cost of one of these costs a minimum of 3k, that’s roughly 700,000 euro on display units alone. Now include maintenance, repair and energy on top of this.

  8. There’s nothing worse than having to sit for 30 minutes on the LUAS staring at 3 dirty widows orphans. Just, so many questions. Some people just want to watch the world burn.

  10. In spite of the obvious, shining promise of it, there comes a moment when you realize that the whisper that has been pestering you all along from the back of your mind is speaking the flat, awful truth: it won’t work. An element is missing, that spark that brings to life a real story, regardless of whether the history or the food is right. Your story is emotionally dead, that’s the crux of it. The discovery is something soul-destroying, I tell you. It leaves you with an aching hunger.
