    Women’s Danger Index 2019: SA is the worst country for solo female travel

    This study is likely BS. If one takes caution in SA (stick to touristy areas) and stick to Uber etc, its unlikely that anything vile will happen unless they wander off into a dodgy area or are too trusting. The same cannot be said about some of the other countries on the list where even if you...

    How has your company treated you during Covid?

    Not sure how it works exactly, but in my case, the company filed on behalf of all employees.

    How has your company treated you during Covid?

    My duties have increased. A guy resigned and I had to takeover his duties. I'm just using it as a learning experience because it is allowing me to gain more experience. It looks like I may work permanently from home now. The company seems to have realized that it saves them on operational...

    Do you have multiple citizenships?

    You might actually get a lot of attention. I know a lot of darker skinned males (black men especially) who tend to do quite well in terms of dating in countries with majority white people. Germany in particular.

    Do you have multiple citizenships?

    Is it possible? Most Asian countries seem super-strick on citizenship, at least compared to SA and many western nations. I would think it would only really be possible if you have an exceptional talent or are filthy rich?

    Do you have multiple citizenships?

    No, I only have SA citizenship. I could potentially qualify for an OCI card in India but the admin work that I would have to do just scares me. Plus, I don't have an interest in going and staying there currently.

    How long do your laptops usually last? Do you take good care of your gear?

    I have a HP I5 i3 right now for two and a half years. I would not say it has been the best at taking abuse but I have taken it on two rushed overseas trips and it is still operational. I'll probably use it until it becomes unusable. I have power glue on it now to cover cracks and had to...

    The airports are open, do you plan to fly?

    Not a bad idea. Travelling can be a lot of fun if you are with the right company. A lot of the destinations are just glorified money making scams though and you get the same experience (without having to stand in long-lines) as you do from watching YouTube videos.

    The airports are open, do you plan to fly?

    I flew from Durban to Cape Town yesterday. If you are going in now, make sure that you try to get to the airport at least 2 hours early. With the checks etc, going in an hour early could be cutting it very fine.

    Have you turned a hobby into a career?

    Did it for a while in my final year of Uni (2017), I was earning as much as I do for working full time now. Unfortunately, content creation is an unstable field. You can go from doing well one day to earning R0 next year. I still do side-hustle work, but it's not as lucrative as it was. I'm...

    Do you still listen to the radio?

    Only in the car. 5FM has always been my favourite but my Mum usually prefers Lotus FM and I'm often in the car with her.

    Stop phishing attacks. Scam emails are now becoming increasingly hard to differentiate from authentic emails. It is easy to enter your banking info into a scam site which looks exactly like the authentic bank or Paypal site.

    Shots fired, journalists assaulted, as protest outside farm murder court case turns violent

    The people who defend Petzer's racist servers are like the people who say that Malema is not a racist because "what he says must be understood in context"

    Shots fired, journalists assaulted, as protest outside farm murder court case turns violent

    Lol, the DA will always be there, they might lose support but it would be foolish to think that they would fade into oblivion anytime soon. There is a voter demographic that they risk losing- i.e the white voter that is pro-VF+ but backed the DA in the last election because they did not think...

    Trump: 'I condemn all white supremacists'

    Corruption is a human problem. In the US, I highly doubt that most corruption comes from black people.

    The DA is in total crisis.

    The problem with DA politics is that people are too loyal to their respective parties, that goes for both ANC and DA. I would like to see a system like the US where it can swing either way. We will get there eventually but it is going to take a very long time. I've seen campuses where there...
