Pretty much everything about Kale and I getting married was untraditional. But we were actually quite traditional by not moving in together until a few days before our wedding. via Pocket
It is not difficult to look at naked women on the Internet. There are, after all, a lot of men and women who post nude photos of themselves online hoping for pageviews, extra income, or just exhibitionist titillation. via Pocket
Early in my career I was headhunted to join a brand new startup. It was a management consultancy that had been created by a big international business. The company had big plans in the UK for their new enterprise and within six months they had recruited 60 top people. via Pocket
