  1. Research on our everyday use of electronic devices

    Thanks to those who took part in an earlier version of some university research I am involved in that is looking at how we conduct our everyday relationships through smartphones, computers, tablets and other electronic devices. I have now moved on to a second phase of questions and I hope you...
  2. Political food

    Hot on the heels of Napster's condemnation of a Carrot Cake as food loved by Maoists, what other everyday foodstuffs do you think are drawn to one political allegience. I do love an avocado, but their green skins look like something Hugo Boss designed for Adolf Eichmann back in 1936. Dirty...

    So, could you manage without Facebook and/or Twitter?

    I’m not a big user of either, more of a lurker in the background when certain stuff is pointed out to me to look at. So how integral are they to your everyday life? Could you exist without them if they got turned off for security reasons, or something similar, as part of measures introduced...

    Why do we have it shoved in our face every minute of the day on all media platforms. The news etc keep on pushing it as page one news everyday, or is it just mostly propaganda to keep the masses under control. The words always used about people who do not conform are separatist, radical, A...

    Weekly Southend quiz

    I think we should have a weekly quiz - as it distracts us from the everyday. Here's the first 10: 1) What did Shaun Goater say was Steve Tilson's only flaw as a manager? Correct 2) In one game, Roy McDonough was given his first captaincy, got sent off, waited in the tunnel at half time to have...

    Sleeping Rough

    I can't work this out. I work in London, into Liverpool Street and my office is close to Fenchurch Street. Everyday for the last week or two there has been someone sleeping rough by an air duct in the building next door. All you can see is the sleeping bag with a hint of hair sticking out and a...

    Commuting to London

    I start a new job in Bishopsgate, London on Monday - my first job - and I've got to commute to London everyday from Southend Airport Station. I went to look at the prices for season tickets for the train and I was horrified at the £3,500 price tag! Is there any loophole/discount/other way of...

    RBS Marriage Cheat Revealed

    So there we have it, while Sir Fred Goodwin was screwing up everyday people's money, jobs, etc, he was also doing something similar in his private life, though not to his wife. A bank employee no less. All whilst trying to hide behind a High Court judge at the same time. Such a busy man. Did...

  20. Contract Cancellations!

    Just wondering why it is that everyday I log onto the southend website someone else contract has been cancelled. I know the wages most of these boys were on were obscene but surely selling them for something, even if its a nominal fee, would be beneficial to the clubs finances???
