Philosophy: A Wasted Life

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 25, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

In one of the last interviews the philosopher Richard Dworkin (1913 – 2013) gave, he was asked what is wrong with a person spending their entire life collecting matchboxes. His answer was that such a hobby is not a real challenge, it is trivial, the result is only a collection of matchboxes. He goes on […]

Anchor Babes: I Lost It For A Moment There

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 21, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I got caught up in my own confusion recently, reading through Twitter without clicking on any of the links to get the low down on each short message. What I read is not what was written, at least, not in the way that I thought it was. In other words, I gained a completely different […]

World Maps: The Final Proof

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 15, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It is the truth as every single Australian knows it: all the maps of the world are wrong except those printed on their fair continent. Australia really is on top, along with all those other lands in the southern hemisphere, and President Obama, along with ex-President Clinton and a little help from Mark Knoller, prove […]

Sacred Cows And Art: The Eye Of The Beholder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 14, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, whether that ‘beholder’ is another person or some narcissistic selfie-shooter staring in a mirror makes little difference. And beauty in art is also a matter for each individual, something which often cannot be explained to other people since it is such a personal matter. Comparing Constable, for […]

A Hard Time Feeling Sorry

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 12, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I look at the prices on the gas pump every single day as I go past, marveling at the constant changes and how, despite a theoretically proven lack of complicity, all the gas stations in a single town or area have the same roughly price. Up to ten times a day, I am told, there […]

The Woes Of Windows (10)

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 11, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Despite the long download and update time – you will recall that I wrote about it a short while ago – Windows 10 seems to be working reasonably well so far. I’ve dumped much of the Start menu entries as being over-the-top and installed the Do Not Spy software to remove all the reporting mechanisms […]

Well, That Accelerated Quickly…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 5, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It seems to me, reading through thousands of different Twitter posts during quiet moments, that there are those who talk and those who just shout. I’m glad, in many ways, that talking is limited to one hundred and forty characters – although I have seen the limit used and then the [1/12843957] for those prepared […]

Looks Like I’m Rich… Again

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 3, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

The only reason I bother going into the spam folder on my mail account is to delete what’s in there. Well, almost. Sometimes a mail will be directed to spam when it is real and should have come to my Inbox although, to be honest, that is a rarity. So I go in there, delete […]

Welcome To Windows 10: Please Wait While…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 2, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Those four little squares – forming a larger square – adorning the task list on my computer screen had been drawing my attention for quite a while. I knew what they were but, until quite recently, I didn’t know exactly what would happen if I clicked through. Would I be taken direct to the Microsoft […]

Cosby: The Empty Chair

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 29, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

You must be living on the dark side of the moon if you haven’t heard, in one way or another, of the accusations leveled against the comedian, the Dad in a Cardigan, Bill Cosby. Just as so many people, over so many years, in all areas of society – but especially in those of law […]
