It is an unfortunate side effect of travelling that one can never find enough opportunities for charging one's electronic devices. And when one can neither work, play games, nor read e-books as a consequence, one is forced to opt for whatever low forms of entertainment come to hand*. By this I mean the magazines that one is reduced to buying at train stations and airports.

Turkish Viagra, for when electricity-based forms of entertainment are not available.

Delight, in amongst the Turkish Delight.

My travelling companion and I have read the latest edition of UK Cosmopolitan magazine from cover to cover. Notable was the advice column, which we found to be sadly lacking in good counsel to Modern Young Women. With brain-rotting advice like this being distributed far and wide, it is no wonder that Modern Young Women have had their minds numbed to the point where they waste their time and money on silly women's magazines**.

So in an effort to raise standards I hereby invite readers to solicit my considered advice on any problems they may be languishing under. Feel free to post your questions in the comments section***.

* In saying "low forms of entertainment that come to hand" I was not making a thinly veiled reference to masturbation. Sorry.

** Airport and train station purchases not withstanding.

*** I wish to remain objective in this, so if your problem involves me in some way, I'm afraid I will be unable to answer you.

I have a question. Where's that fabled supermarket in Turcoing? It turns out I'm gonna be spending the weekend over the border in Courtrai and I was thinking of making a pilgrimage.

I too have a question.

When one takes the lazy option of downloading a 'free' template for a CMS from a supposedly reputable template vendor (who obviously sell a large percentage of their designs as well as offering hosting for said templates), and finds several of the most basic cock ups in html and cms coding, pretty much eradicating the time benefit you were planning on by spending many hours tracking down bugs and fixing them, what should one do?

In short, these bastards managed to waste several hours of my life by sheer incompetence - how should I go about getting those hours back?
