Facebook has been fighting clickbait for the past couple of weeks, and I got to admit it’s doing a pretty great job. Yeah, it’s not there yet, but the newsfeed is slowly being purged of all nasty, worthless content.
Let’s have a look back at news and entertaining content from a couple years ago, before internet became the place of choice to advertise and monetize content. Read More
Ben oui, je sais écrire en français aussi, va savoir. C’est même ma langue maternelle, va savoir davantage. On me demande souvent (pratiquement jamais) pourquoi avoir un site en anglais quand t’as la chance de pouvoir t’exprimer dans ta langue. C’pas très compliqué : pas mal tout le monde parle anglais.
Mais là, aujourd’hui, on va faire ça autrement. Y a des trucs qui se disent mieux avec des mots acquis depuis longtemps comme par exemple “tonitruant” ou encore “débarbouillette”. Bonne nouvelle, on n’utilisera pas ces deux-là. Read More

Making other people feel guilty on purpose is probably one of the most egocentric and self-centered act of disrespect known to women and men. Don’t get me wrong; feeling guilty is a common occurence, and it’s important to realize when you screwed up and need to make up for it.
The main reason why selfish people are helping other people is for others to owe them things. The following statement is easily debatable, but I’ve heard someone say generous people are also helping others out of egocentricity since they take action for them to feel good about themselves. We often hear that nothing is more empowering and rewarding than to lend a hand for free. Never forget that helping others is also something we do for ourselves, but that shouldn’t be considered egocentricity. Read More
