Pointless list #1: People I like and dislike


I wasn’t stuck between the moon and New York City this week, but I was stuck on the tarmac at Sydney Airport for half an hour. Sorry Russel Brand, you were no Dudley Moore.

So I made two pointless, unordered, and incomplete lists. Enjoy.


  • People who cut off ambulances
  • People who ask for an “expresso”
  • People claiming moral authority who aren’t
  • People who are on this list
  • People who label a “vegetable pie” with beef in it


  • People working in climate science in 2017
  • People tirelessly maintaining old Exchange servers
  • People who smile when they walk past
  • People who are on this list
  • Artichoke farmers
