The Useful Info Blog 4/4/2013
- Learn Something New Everyday


- I often find myself helping people and I like to do that, but since it seems to take up a lot of my time and I have no other job I think I should put up a donation button. So I have decided to list all my new tips on this new blog.

- Coincidentally I was talking to the Edinburgh University prof about the old style Lonely Planet and how they have moved so far away from the "On a shoe-stringstyle that they used to have. He said now someone should create a guidebook in that style now LP have stopped doing that. I realised that a lot of the info I put up is already that so I will list that on this blog.

So much Irrationality

Making sense of this crazy world ... I reproduce some common tools from my Irrational World blog
