    What is the worst tasting food/drink you have ever consumed?

    Durian filled doughnut was not particularly nice. My wife has eaten Surströmming, which is also not very nice. I tried, really hard, to find dog when I was in Flores, Indonesia, but it is illegal. We did spot a road repair team roasting a dog on a spit, but you need to know the right questions...

    Girls, depression, Instagram & Facebook

    Gandhi had some faults which prevent me from being impressed with him - he was racist, supported the caste system etc, but that did not stop me respecting him for his significant political acumen. I visited his ashram when I visited Ahmenadabad (Gujarat) It is now a museum, and is quite honest...
