This image, with which I'm madly in love, has been going around the web for a while now, unfortunately without any kind of proper citation or artist credits. Does anyone know anything about the origins of this picture? Who took this? Where? When? [And for that matter, is this even really a dolphin or some kind of whale?] If anyone has any information about this, please drop me a line and let me know!
Here's something I'm currently enjoying being a part of: "Zürich's Language Exchange". As the name suggests, it's a group/activity all about learning and practicing languages. So far we've been focused on German, seeing that it's obviously the biggest interest around here, but hopefully in time other languages will be added to the menu also.
So if you're living anywhere in the Zürich vicinity and are interested in practicing German or languages in General, check us out. =)
Fair warning: I'm angry and therefore quite possibly offensive. Also, you'll need to speak Persian for this one....
Of all the misogynistic idiotic mindless hogwash that _some_ of my beloved Iranians are nowadays spreading around social networks such as Facebook, every once in a while something really gets on my last nerve. Here's one. I guess what really boils my blood is that this was shared by a WOMAN. Mind you, I'm not a feminist by any definition, but sometimes I just run out of patience with these things....
So I'm saying to the "man" who created this and whomever's spreading it: I dare you to compare my IQ, my credentials, my accomplishments, my technical skills, my general wisdom and etc with YOUR OWN. Lets create a chart and publish the results. I dare you. Lets see which one of us is doing better in this life, and then lets talk about your work of art here....
First I thought this was some sort of a recreation [a.k.a. Photoshop...]. Now it seems like it isn't. Well, wow. Apparently "The Lovers" really were found in a bin at the Hasanlu archaeological site in Iran. Article from the Penn Museum blog here.
This weblog is a
collection of my random thoughts. It's as simple as that. What I write here
is for my friends, or anyone else who might find it worth reading. This is
not a tech blog, a science blog, a lyrics blog or...although you might find
either one of those topics in here "randomly". I appreciate comments very much, so
if you have any thoughts about something that you read here please drop me a
line and let me know. So...after all this, welcome to my weblog, thanks for
visiting and enjoy your stay! =)
