  1. Why are you happy today?

    Only ten working days left and I will be out of the automotive industry!
  2. Coin collectors

  3. Space rocket launches and ISS docking news

    The Russians didn't understand why somebody would construct such a freak of nature, as the space shuttle doesn't make sense.   They then assumed the Americans have a special military use for bringing a large payload into space, and also bringing back such a payload. They Russians didn't know what this military use might be, but they assumed that this is the reason to build a space shuttle.   So they decided to build a similar thing that is capable of bringing the same size of payload into space and back, avoiding to have lost time once it is clear what this assumed military use is.   After all, we're talking about the way of thinking during the height of the cold war.

  9. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

    The opinions about what manly is and what not certainly have changed in the last 50 years...   Burt Reynolds, first male centerfold, cosmopolitan magazine, 1972:
  10. Pointless plastics..

  11. Why are you unhappy today?

    What do you consider a "proper" bike, a two-stroke scooter? :-)
  12. Is Prince Harry revolting?

    Does the Canadian Dollar have the queen's portrait on it?
