Thought #60. On #BritishThreatLevels hashtag.
In the wake of the Manchester terror attack, British citizens stoically stand up for their peculiar national character in an attempt to try to lift their mood. They would go to any lengths to turn a deaf ear to terrorists; in other words, if terrorists expe...

Thought #59. Is art facing a major crisis?
A good artist is somehow like a great speaker. We can draw a comparison between the process of writing a compelling speech and that of creating a great piece of art; they are both perfect examples of daunting tasks. Why do artists take the centre stage with...

Thought #58. Checkmating AI.
My dog Sucre is not a dab hand at chess, but he has the uncanny knack of soothing me when necessary. I wonder whether AI (Artificial Intelligence) would ever possess such a humanlike capacity. Last week I came across a series of articles on the future of AI...

Thought #57. Is torture ever justified?

Thought #56. Fight like cat and dog.
Dear Reader, How's it going? It's been ages since I've heard from you. I have to confess that your e-mail left me flabbergasted. I still remember when I told you about Sucre: your eyes out on stalks and you saying "Over my dead body my wife would ever bring...

Thought #53. An ill-timed accident.
That morning I had an accident. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't the kind of accident that is usually followed by a thorough investigation. It was a childish and minor one. I wetted myself. It wasn't out of a need to go to the bathroom but unexpectedly; out of...

Thought #52. A converted atheist.
Robert's fondness for his wife was well known. He would have given his life for Joana if only she had asked him to do so. Unfortunately though, he could not help but witness the lingering and inevitable death of his beloved partner. The fate of their uphill...

Thought #51. The sweets of an uphill struggle.
It is not rocket science that the pursuit of happiness is virtually universal. From a tribe of Amazonian Indians to the dwellers of a megacity like Tokio, each individual has its own idea of what happiness looks like. Sometimes though, we are on the wrong p...
