Share via Email Networking Alamy ‘Let me guess. You’re going to the middle of the world,” says the Quito taxi driver, turning to the English backpackers in the backseat, while simultaneously negotiating the city’s mid-morning traffic. He’s right first time. The equator is one of the Ecuadorian capital’s biggest attractions – even though GPS devices have recently revealed the much-photographed line to be off centre by over metres. What was supposed to open your eyes to new countries and new cultures, these days often involves hanging out with other travellers, often from your own country, while following the same carbon-copy route, Lonely Planet checklist in hand. There’s no point being snobby about it; many of us have done the same. But this time when it came to planning a three-month trip around central and south America, I decided to take a different approach. I wanted to find out whether travel-networking websites, such as couchsurfing.

The bike was a cc Royal Enfield Constellation. It was a real bike in a box job, having been stripped down to every last nut and bolt and needed a complete restoration. It took me a while to rebuild and restore because I couldn’t afford a workshop manual, and pretty much as soon as it was finished, I managed to ride it straight through a neighbour’s garage doors when the throttle stuck open during a test ride! Fortunately, the garage was empty and he was kind enough to let me make good the damage and not tell my dear old Mother. Unfortunately, no-one had told me that these engines could occasionally run backwards if you caught them right or wrong! Then I bought myself a cc Panther Sloper that also needed some reassembly and as part of that restoration, I made a point of fitting double throttle return springs, hey, at least the garage doors were safe and then I changed the Panther for probably my favourite motorcycle of all time, the BSA Rocket Gold Star. This was all at a time when a teenager could insure a British bike of around cc for something like UKP20 a year but had to do everything by the slow process of post and cheque or check for you Americans! Anyway, enough of my chat Enjoy the British bikes Vincent Comet A wonderful restoration of this very desirable and collectable machine.

A panoply of human splendor, if you will, but often poignant and lonely. At times reminiscent of a stroll through Amsterdam’s Red Light District, not in terms of literal financial transactions, but in the sense of a candidly sexual department store window display — mass objectification. One gets the subtle hint that it is easy to find a lover, take-out or delivery. More recently, researchers sought to clarify what ingredients go into hooking-up on Tinder Sevi et al.

But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?

I think I fit into a between stage between the second and third part. I like to sum up this position into one phrase: More than just kissing and holding hands, but more boundaries.

Mario is synonymous with video gaming and the face of Nintendo. Even if you are not an avid gamer, you most likely know Mario – he is everywhere from crossovers, merchandise and.. Let us rewind back to the late s, almost a year after the critically acclaimed video game Super Mario Bros. It was the next big thing in Japan and eventually here in the West – but where am I going with this? Now, in the West we were greeted with the Super Mario Bros.

The founder of Ashley Madison, the online dating service for marrieds who want to stray, markets his business with the simple slogan: She has a finger up to her lips, as if welcoming us to her secret sexual paradise. Ashley Madison is controversial. Every time he opens his mouth, provocative talk spews forth about adultery, which is almost as old as marriage. You wouldn’t be able to fill a football team, run a government or have a corporation that can function. So let’s stop trying to paint these people as villains. Ashley Madison has 25 million members in 35 countries, so Biderman, who lives in Toronto, has access to reams of data. In fact, he claims to see more information on adultery in a single day than a professional sociologist would in an entire career. But who is this Noel Biderman, who wants you to betray your spouse if you’re unhappy, that is?
Jon Anthony Jon enjoys helping others evolve into their best selves on his blog: I let her in the front door, and immediately gave her a hug. I grabbed her by the hand and led her upstairs to my room. As we walked up the stairs, she spat out the oldest shit test in the world: We walked into my room and I slyly shut the door behind us, while grabbing a bottle of vodka in seconds flat. Rather than trying to impress her or get her comfortable with me first, I simply plopped down onto the faux bearskin blanket on my bed, and invited her to sit right next to me. After about 5 minutes of solid verbal game and sub-communication, she was attacking my face like a grizzly bear in heat. Another five minutes later, and she was screaming: You can also liken these two components to the neo-frontal cortex the human brain and the limbic brain the animalistic brain.
