I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.
my grandfather always had candy in his pockets, and one time when I got really sick and I was hospitalized my dad told him not to give me any candy. He pulled out his pockets to show he hadn’t even brought any and I got really sad but as soon as my dad walked out of the room he then proceeded to take off his hat and had 2 chewy chocolate candy toffees and 2 orange fanta toffees, and I’ll never forget the happiness and surprise I felt in that one moment in my entire life.
With an actor father and a producer mother, surely that must have opened doors into the world of film and TV? “Look, if you’re a plumber and your son wants to be a plumber too, are you going to tell him, ‘Go and make your own fucking way of it, mate - I’m not going to help in the slightest’? But I was never offered any parts for just being their son. Once you get into that audition room, nobody gives a shit who your parents are - no one will watch a movie just because Keith Allen’s son’s in it. People have always pointed it at me, but it’s something I’m definitely over. I think it’s just jealousy half the time, people saying that.” - Alfie Allen for FHM Collections S/S 2014

HOW THE MOKIN CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO SEE WITH AMAZING CLARITY UNDERWATER
The Mokin are a group in Thailand that are nomadic and have a sea-based culture.
In the sea there is less light, so usually one’s iris will dilate. But the Mokin have an adaption where instead of dilating, they constrict as much as possible.
This allows them to see with much better clarity. Recent studies suggest that any child can quickly learn this trick. It exemplifies how well our brain adapts to our environment.
