Recipe for happiness


  • Sleep, and lots of it!
  • Love, this could go either way. In most cases adds a lovely tint of happiness to life but has been known to cause great sadness.
  • Exercise. A healthy body is a happy body and whatnot, it's vital.
  • Fulfilment in education or career. Whatever you do make sure you enjoy it! You get one shot at life so do it right.
  • Friends, the centre of your fun. The centre of your life. Friends are so important because a true friend is one forever and will never leave you. You spent some of your life's greatest moments together and need to stay in touch forever.
  1. Step ones the tricky one. To begin with it's probably best to take a positive outlook on everything. Don't give a damn what anybody thinks but you and the ones you love. They're the one's that matter and don't let anybody knock you back.
  2. Find someone you love. There's no real words to describe love because it's never the same. Not for two people not for two minutes. If they're the right person then you'll just know it's them, you can be yourself and share things you enjoy. Do it right and happiness is yours.
  3. Do the things you enjoy because if you don't enjoy it then you'll never be happy doing it. Trust your instincts and go with them no matter what.
  4. Have fun! Nobody can truly claim to be happy without having a good laugh from time to time. Keep your friends close at all times because they will be there for you when you're there for them. 
  5. Realise that you are a person, a beautiful human being and no one can take that away from you so don't let life get you down. Go from day to day with a smile and other people will join in and before too long you will have started a happy revolution so go on, save the world from all this devastation and just smile. You don't know where it might get you!

My internet: From picture sharing to robot applications

 I am often entering conversations about which are the best sites for this and the best for that so I thought I would share some findings with you as well as answers to some FAQ's.

 Best site for picture sharing?: Flikr

Why 'Wonky Robot'?: Well, when I was younger I had a small toy robot with a wonky head and when looking for a good name for a blog that documents current affairs in a simple form i began to think of the world around me and something personal to me. My wonky robot is symbolic of the government today. They have all the robot applications but they don't use them properly. Hope the explaination is good enough. 

Best iPhone game: PocketGod

Best iPhone app: Angry Birds

Pocket god update 37: Moron Pests

When I first heard of pocket god from one of my school friends the sound of mindlessly throwing around smallanimated islanders sounded like one of Col. Muammar al-Gaddafi's life ambitions.
However, since playing the game I realised that it does not replicate the reigns of evil dictators or the dreams of village idiots but provides endless fun with the constant, unique updates bringing extra exciting twists along the way. And episode 37 is no exception. As both the first instalment of the dreamworld mini-series and crossover with the hit iOs game 'The Moron Test', episode 37 introduces players to a whole new area to explore containing vivd colours and a seemingly innocent looking snake. If a player chooses to sacrifice one of their tiny Pygmy islanders by dropping the huge snake above their heads then they will be taken to within the snakes digestive system. Here they will begin a high speed pursuit with an angry turtle and must answer a high selection of trick questions in order to gain ground.
There is also a very limited expansion pack available for 59p ($0.99) containing alternative skins for the evil spider in the graveyard.
All in all, Bolt creative have pulled it out of the bag however I fear that soon the iPhone app will be forgotten behind all of the new projects surrounding the successful franchise.
