About Ninja Hedgehog

I’m Ninja Hedgehog, the creator of the Ninja Hedgehog website. I've written various things over the years but started Ninja Hedgehog in October 2011. I write about all kind of subjects but will never write about sport. Ever.

Manchester Bombing

As we all know, there was a terrorist attack at Manchester Arena last night  at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.

At approximately 22:30, a suicide bomber detonated a nail bomb, injuring dozens and at the time of writing this, killing twenty-two innocent people; some of whom were just children. Islamic State have taken responsibility for this attack. I was going to refer to this as a cowardly attack, but when isn’t detonating a bomb as part of a calculated attack against hundreds or thousands of people not cowardly?

You Wanna Pizza Me?

All of the big fast food pizza places offer special deals if you collect your pizza in person and one of the most common deals is “any pizza, any size for £x.xx”. No doubt they assume that someone who’s ordering a pizza is a fat fuck, therefore it’s a rare occurrence for someone to actually make the effort to visit in person so it’s a minimal-loss sales technique.

Papa John’s offer this deal for £9.99 and although the price is the same as that for an identical offer with Domino’s, Papa John’s offer something which Domino’s doesn’t; a XXL size pizza. continue reading

Burger King Beef

I’ve not been to Burger King for a very long time, which is probably down to the simple fact that there’s not as many of them around as there are McDonald’s. And the other simple fact that you have to get out of your car to get a burger from Burger King.

As a youngster, I always enjoyed a burger from Burger King because the quality and portion size was far superior to that of an equivalent meal from McDonald’s, so I was mildly excited last Sunday when I stopped at a motorway services and saw that along with the three(!) Costa stores, there was a Burger King. continue reading

Commuting

As mentioned here, I fairly recently took a change in direction career-wise.

My new job means that I now have to commute on the train and endure having my personal space invaded whilst simultaneously invading the personal space of others. This is a given when using the train so you’d think every other passenger would be accepting of it, but I’ve been surprised (perhaps naively) by the reluctance of other commuters to accept their travelling companions on their journey to and from work. continue reading

Glucose Aid

Yesterday afternoon, I started to develop an annoying, dull headache. Knowing that I hadn’t consumed an awful lot of water during the day, I started to drink a lot of it as I was probably dehydrated.

Although the headache initially started to subside, it performed a full 180 degree turn and decided it was far from done where fucking my head with a pneumatic drill was concerned. continue reading

Royal Fail

Royal Fail

You’d think that after my recent experience with Wish, I would know better than to order items from China just to save a few quid. I have found to my own detriment that doing so costs more in time and in frustration, which far outweighs the initial monetary savings made.

Like a small child, someone with learning difficulties or a chimp, I need to make the same mistake several times before I eventually learn my lesson. continue reading
