rooting for

There is good in the bad and bad in the good, but I can’t stop thinking that “destroying” an opponent is a good thing, even if only in a discussion. I think that ridiculizing people is terrible, I think we should try for 1 month and remove from our life white lies lies complaints insult […]

we are going to kill the traditional dishes

Many of my friends love masterchef and became excellent “handmade” chefs. They’re good at it. And I love ethnic dishes so I mostly do recipes that come from  outside of the place I live.

sarcasm and politic

Being satiric and being sarcastic are very different things. I have the impression that we’re on a mission to be more sarcastic, while losing our ability to be satiric (and therefore to critic both sides). In italy we have a vote in dicember and now everyone seems to have a strong opinion, they have all […]
