I left my home city a long time ago: more than 8 years ago. I cannot say that I really miss it, but when I show its streets to friends using Google Earth or Maps, I notice some things which look funny, especially now.
1) This very phrase gave me an idea about this post:
2) “Sexy” on a rubbish bin booth.
3) It goes with a claim to be beautiful.
5 & 6) Rap VS Rock
9) Malibu is 8400 km away…
10) A sign in Yiddish.
Maltsev said: “The first to be imprisoned will become a President? He was arrested yesterday; Navalny was locked already a few times and I did not check if Maltsev has been ever imprisoned. They both do the same job: they reveal corrupted schemers of top Russian politicians and fight for better future. Here is a half-year old video with an extract of their meeting. BTW, “051117” is a date of a new era (revolution?) in Russia according to Maltsev.
So, Maltsev or Navalny?
“Kabedon” is a Japanese word, 壁ドン.
壁 is “wall”, what a complicated character for such a simple word!
And it means…
1. The act of punching a wall. E.g. Punching a wall to indicate to a neighbor that they are noisy.
When you listen to some loud music at night, your neighbors knock on the wall as if telling you: LOUDER! MAKE IT LOUDER!
2. When a man puts his hand against a near wall (romantically or hostilely), creating a barrier with his arm and preventing a woman from moving.
I remember, I did it to a lady. It was such a move that we even remembered about it and discussed it years later. Have you ever done a kabedon to anyone? Ladies, has anyone done it you? How did you feel about it?
Externally it means: “I am a man, I am strong, I feel like at home and this wall is mine, I am a master here. And you, woman, belong to me.” Internally it means: “I’ve made a brave step (praise the guy for it!), I came to talk to you, but I am not confident, that is why I need a support, the wall will be fine. So, let me pretend that I am stronger than I look”.
I will post some staff on IT in this blog, I already did a post about WordPress+Instagram, now I got something different. BTW, In plans is a post about TinyMCE.
If you start such a project, let me know 🙂 I would like to accept a “thank you” note and a few bank notes as well 🙂
At this stage, I got a few (5? May be 6?) different projects on my mind. Each is 1 million $ idea 🙂 I work hard on a prioritised one, two more projects are half-done and frozen for the sake of the first idea. Also there are ideas to keep my head in future and here is the idea I am quite happy to share. I hope someone can put this idea into practice and earn a lot of money and… see the Disclaimer above.
Project name: “Open Mail”
Keywords: email, website, social network, blog, forum.
Mottos: “I have nothing to hide!”; “Anti-Cryptoanarchism comes!”
Description: Email server with all the modern features (SMTP/POP3/IMAP/etc; antispam). The difference to all other email servers will be official absence of privacy. All the messages are open, 100% accessible from the Web and indexed by search engine bots. Anything which goes to or from secured emails will be revealed as well! Even if a user deletes a message from the Inbox, the message will be still available on a profile’s web-page. Discussion treads will be available as a blog-roll. Anyone will be able to read, join a conversation, download attachments, etc. It is almost like using Twitter for correspondence, but with all the features of an email server like Gmail or Yahoo.
Features: likes, tags & hashtags, addressees will be also added as user cross-links (@user_name or email@example.com), discussion groups, messages to “all”: these are messages, which will be posted on a personal blog-roll.
Users may stay anonymous; if someone needs to send something private like scans of documents, then “Open Mail” is not the right service to do so. Usage of encrypted messages (e.g. by PGP/GPG) probably will not be allowed, because nobody needs encrypted junk on a website. If someone wants to host an encrypted message with open access so that hackers tried to decrypt it, then it can be done through other services; there are so many free web-services on the Net. Drafts will remain private, because artists do not like their works to be seen before they are done 🙂 A user will be able to delete a message which is available as a web-page, just in case.
There could be many different ways of creating “Open Mail”. Any open-source email server and a web-engine can work together. Email service has to have just one feature: if a message is successfully sent or received, then all the info must be passed to the web-engine. The message then will be posted on a web page. It can be even WordPress. Anyway, if you will use a ready-made engine, many things got to be changed it in. Or is it easy to post all the messages on the web as an RSS line? There are WordPress plugins that can import RSS into blog-rolls. This solution requires two applications and two databases. So, probably, the best option is a unique engine (and one database).
She was just seven. May be, she walked home in a good mood from school to make her parents glad with two top marks in singing and drawing. She did not make it on that day. When she walked near children’s playground, a couple of dogs attacked her. They were just unleashed domestic dogs.
When I try to see myself in this situation, I presume that the main parts of the story were fear, pain, view of terribly bright red blood and a quick thought of ongoing death. What else I would think in such a situation when I was seven? Whom I would call? Even though I got a few answers, unanswered questions outnumber them.
The news about this terrible thing happened in the Ural district of Russia was discussed in social media. Someone in disrespecting manner blamed parents for not taking care of the girl; he was threatened by another Internet user with Allah’s revenge on such an attitude. Obviously, the first person asked a question: Where has Allah been at the time of the attack? Reading comments on the Internet is a disgraceful fun, which I happened to have due to curiosity. There was a branch of comments devoted to political clashes between Russia and Ukraine; and another argument on Allah who is quick to humiliate offenders of his prophet. In other words: Allah who represents “peaceful religion” punishes his offenders by humiliation. There was a guy who claimed to be Christian; he said that he eyewitnesses “miracles” that people who have never seen started seeing, and those who could not walk, started walking. How about resurrecting the girl?
I like reading comments, especially on my own blog 🙂 By the time of posing this text I have not seen any yet, but I hope I will. Likes (especially by bots, are not counted). But… How terrible comments might become if people start religious wars?! I quit at once if I see that such rubbish begins…
Just an example: The Living God, Jehovah, is often blamed for inconsistency. Fact number one: Christian God is God of love; fact number two: He allows children to be born with cancer and they die very soon.
Here is a good reading: Why does God allow children to suffer and die? Do not read comments though 😀
For the majority of people, these two facts are just enough to proclaim, that there is no God. Or there is, but He is punishing wrong people. To me, a follower of Jesus Christ, these two facts are enough to say that something wrong is wish us, people; something wrong with our understanding of God and our own nature.
A movie with cool prrrr-wa-wa-wa ch-ch-sh-sh effects and Cthulhu-like creatures; based on a book (which I have started reading) and got a few philosophical and linguistic problems. It is worth watching.
It is not one of those movies people say “Good movie, but not for Christians”. As you can see on the title image, there is a good question for you (in English) and a word in heptapod language in between. Do you know what it means? The answer is in brackets in white letters on white background. To see it, just select it with a mouse (Louise). This and all other graphical staff of heptapods can be found here.
But let’s get back to the question. I asked such a question to a few friends. (And I ask you same question here, comment please). If you could see your whole life laid out in front of you, would you change things?
Here is an answer from a lady who moves using crutches due to a spine trauma:
— To know what is going to happen and anyway to go this way… It is said that God when creates a soul, shows the way, now it is the choice to follow this way, or not. I turn back to my life and see that I do not want to go back and change anything in it. Right now I am what I am. My present is quite interesting and I got amazing future! God leads me the right way, works on me, He opens important truths and values. When I think about the end of my Earthly life, I got excited about meeting Him face to face. It is not fear, just excitement.
We, who chose Christ, already know our past, present and future, becasue… Here is an answer in the heptapod language, the image is called YouHaveChooseLife1.jpg
A little about what I'm doing at Capernwray...
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us….
