Retro is the new, well, retro

To celebrate… Something. (Let’s just say, the last post in a long time), I’m going back old-school. Back to the VERTIGO theme (I love it). Back to the clumsy typing and carefree attitude (forget this post, it’s a bit of a theoretical outline so it doesn’t count), back to the randomness that a random blog should be. Enjoy Superhero stuff, awesomeness and the random word generator 🙂


I feel like greeting you, readers, for I haven’t written in what seems like a long enough time to greet, I suppose. So, what’s up? How are your lives? Mine? Ah, you want to know why I haven’t written. Well… Let’s take a little flashback to the life of The Gobbler.

My strengths. Blogging. Saving the world. Typing at super-sonic-speed. Practically everything else. Except jumping over hurdles. That, I fail. And what is listed below:

My weaknesses. Lack of Wi-Fi.

Yes, Wi-Fi. I’ve been disconnected due to the fact that I had no Wi-Fi for at least… a week or so. Aaaah! My life was in crisis mode. But now it’s all fixed (as you can tell).

Comment with any suggestions if possible.

Self control.

Alright. Welcome back. I have a little, *ahem*, experiment for you. So here goes:

1. Place a lolly in your mouth (one that you can crunch but are meant to suck, i.e. hard caramel lollies).

2. Tell yourself, “I won’t bite it.”.

3. Do something distracting, i.e. surfing the internet (and we all know HOW distracting that is…)

You ate it. You did. Why? No idea, you say? Try again. And again. It will get easier, the more you try (or maybe you’re sick of that particular lolly by now…).

Why don’t we have self control? (And, yes, I say ‘we’ because I am a culprit. That’s what made me think of the post.). Comment. (That’s not the answer to my rhetorical question…)

True, true.

Is it fair to say that we should be doing our homework when we are on the Internet?


So is it fair to say that the Internet is a waste of time?


Well, is it?

The original idea was to provide a source of information on the ‘World Wide Web’. And what’s it become? A mess of Facebook and mindless blogs that warble on about… well, this sort of thing, which is a bit contradictory but… whatever (true fact – that word will get anybody out of anything, especially teenagers). 

And what do you think now?
