The rewards were varied, seemingly at random. De Waal found the animals had an acute sense of fairness and objected strongly when others were rewarded more than themselves for the same task,...
My life is made up alternating phases of enjoyment for things, that’s how i stay interested. For example one month I’ll listen to nothing but hardcore, or wear nothing but baggy skaterish clothes, or read nothing but french literature etc etc. Last months was taken up by hardcore (because of Architects new release) and reading nothing but philosophy and greek poetry.

I’ve been toying with some thoughts for a while, and I think they’ve finally come to fruition and i’ve got them sorted enough (for now) so that I can write some of them down. A number of different influences played their part but most strongly the writings of Hesse (Steppenwolf, that book really did change my view on things), Sartre’s existentialism (even though Nausea...
