Time doesn't heal a thing, it's what you DO with that time that defines whether you heal or not.

I love that quote and think it's so true. Smile

And now he's excelled himself. I'm up to 1996 and he's talking about bloody DVDs!

I thought it was me, so I did a bit of research, unlike Mr Nicholls, and DVDs first appeared in Europe in 1998.

Very, very poor.

And now, tennis fans, Dexter is catching up with the latest news from Wimbledon.

Shockingly bad research. Shocking ending. Generally a plus.

I really wish there was something in this world that made me feel superior. No, I thought it was well written and a good concept. The research was pretty sloppy, though.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking
By: Malcolm Gladwell

For Blink, Malcolm Gladwell, author of the bestselling The Tipping Point explores the extraordinarily perceptive and deceptive power of the sub-conscious mind. Gladwell’s major claim is that decisions made very quickly can be every bit as good as a decision made cautiously and deliberately. What we are actually doing is what Gladwell calls ‘thin-slicing’. When we leap to a decision or have a hunch our unconscious is sifting through the situation in front of us looking for a pattern, throwing out the irrelevant information and zeroing in on what really matters. Our unconscious mind is so good at this that it often delivers a better answer than more deliberate and protracted ways of thinking. Much of this is utterly mysterious but some of the most astonishing and useful examples of thin-slicing can be learned.
