How to Receive an Awful Present
The lineup for Sydney Festival 2014 revealed

Whether it's a secret Santa or insane grandma, there are times in your life when you'll receive presents that are not only bad, but have no relevance or connection to you. Unfortunately, this happens more than anyone would like, but that doesn't make it any more enjoyable. There's rarely any in which it's okay to tell the person that their present buying skills remind you of great human tragedy and bring you to tears- you would, in fact, be labelled a brute- so there needs to be some official etiquette laid out on how one must act when a beastly gift is bequeathed upon them.

"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." - Heraclitus When you're at the bar with a bunch of your buddies, the truth is that the idea behind the quote doesn't necessarily apply. You can keep trying to do the same thing with the same girl over and over again and the result stays the same. The result being a scary look from the girl, the look that says - get away from me, you creep.

(Would you change you?) Old Lue sat by the desk, pondering the note. What should he say to himself? The last note didn't work as well as he'd hoped. He put his time travel gadget down on the bed for the umpteenth time and stared at it. He could only use it twice more to go back in time to help his younger self. And kid know-it-all hadn't listened much to the note on his first trip.

What Happens Here, Stays Here - This saying has been melted into our minds and usually, for a reason of course, what comes to mind first when you hear this is "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas." And the reason for that is an advertising campaign launched by LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority) and R&R Partners back in 2003.

Las Vegas is the land of mystery. Theoretically a city in U.S. Practically something truly different. More than 38 million people visit Vegas every year to experience what the city has to offer. Of course, if you look at some other source, actually not 38 but 368 million people visited Vegas in 2011. Las Vegas really is the land of mystery. It's also a fact that it's the place where 17 of the biggest hotels in the U.S. are located.
