Idiocracy (2)

In 1996, Dutch soccer trainer Louis van Gaal expressed his frustration with the stupidity of (Dutch) soccer journalists (Dutch video). He asked the (in)famous (Dutch) question: Am I the one who is so intelligent, or are you the one who is so stupid? At times, I feel the same as the stupidity of journalists is beyond comprehension. It's the likely result of an...

What’s luck got to do with it?

Several days ago, I noticed a Dutch article in Scientias magazine that immediately annoyed me: "The most successful people are not the most talented. They mainly had lots of luck".

I think and feel that I have largely underestimated the (social) impact(s) of urbanisation. It is difficult to “see” such an “event” that has been...

It’s just a game………………

No doubt each of us has heard these words - it's just a game - after losing a heated game. Playing games may bring the best - and worst - of us into the spotlight. Why is a game seldom "just a game"? And I'm not the only one. Urban Dictionary even states: "The most infuriating and bloodlust inspiring phrase a gamer can hear. A phrase that makes you wishes...
