Stolen bridges

30/03/2013

It’s not the first time thieves have displayed such ambition. Earlier this year half a bridge in India was stolen over the course of three days – the 40 thieves involved told a guard they had been contracted by the public works department, and blithely set up their cranes. Last year, in the Czech Republic, […]

A nice name for a river

28/03/2013

This is from one of those games that I keep talking about, made by people who are a bit obsessed with detail. The cool thing is how sometimes they leave in little relevant details. For instance, the third river from the top left. The cursor is on it and, on top of the screen the […]

Iron sky & Kung Fu Panda

Reality > Fiction

14/03/2013

Sometimes things happen. That’s one thing about this universe: things happen.

But sometimes, something happens that makes everyone silent. Something so… particular, that scriptwriters and comedians are just left […]

The small victories

From that it is possible to infere fairly solidly what the historical timeline was. This is a rough outline of the records that […]

The Asimov Challenge

07/03/2013

Ok, so I think that Isaac Asimov is a very cool writer. Hell, I love him, and I think you would love him too, if you gave it a chance. You could start with the first volume of The Foundation. It’s an awesome, easy to read, classic Sci-Fi, leaning on the Science side. I think […]

Martenitsi

01/03/2013

Today, Bulgarian traditions! Hoy: Tradiciones búlgaras! That thing on my coat is a Martenitsa. Every 1st of March, Bulgarians give that to each other (specially bfs and gfs), and then wear it until they see a tree in blossom or a stork. When that happens, they hang it from a tree in blossom (or from […]
