So scientists are close to finding a way to erase bad memories.

I think this would be great from PTSD sufferers as the reports have argued. However, I for one wouldn’t like to have bad memories erased. All human beings have their fair share of bad memories. But I for one feel that mine make my stronger and allow me to help better and understand them better. So personally if I was offered the chance, I would say no. I do, however recognise that for PTSD patients and addicts, this may be the best way to cure them and they should have the right to undergo the process.

Today, me and a friend went to see John Wick: Chapter 2. I had wanted to see T2, but I was convinced to see John Wick instead. It was a good film, though I plan to write a more detailed review in the next couple of days, which will either be published on this blog or someone else online. I do have to say that Keanu Reaves’s hair and beard style looked fantastic. I think I could match that look with a few more week’s growth. Unfortunately, I can’t find a picture of it under Creative Commons, so you’ll have to google it yourself.

The FA Cup saw no shocks today with both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United progressing to the sixth round of the tournament. The draw took place at 1830GMT. Chelsea v Man Utd is a cracking tie, and it’ll be interesting to see how Mourinho reacts after losing a tactical battle to Conte last time at Stamford Bridge. Tottenham Hotspur v Millwall is naturally for me a game where I hope both teams lose. But the tie of the round is definitely Sutton/Arsenal v Lincoln City. Lincoln City could get a game at the Emirates or we might have a guarantee of a non league side at Wembley. That’ll be great right?
