The below is just hilarious (true true excerpt from a mail informing about benefit reduction). Brainwashing at it’s best. Please note the thin technique of opposing statements.
“As always, the company is interested in the good health of employees and their families and we want to continue acting for this in future.
With this in mind, this year you will see slight reductions in certain benefits compared to the previous insurance period.”
…in Basarabia …desi sunt multe probleme si lucrurile sunt departe de perfectiunea elvetiana, ci mai aproape de (im)perfectiunea balcano-mioritica, in ultima perioada doua lucruri m-au facut sa zambesc si sa ma bucur (chiar daca pentru perioade scurte si nu neaparat pentru motive fundamental-schimbatoare a ceva, desi niciodata nu stii ) pentru patria mea:
PS: din experienta proprie, cand am fost la o nunta la Balti prin 2006, nuntasii (printre care si o pereche de nasi) din Romania erau atat de exasperati de modelul Moldovenesc de a fi si a de a face nunta, incat repetau mereu in busul care-i transporta catre localul petrecerii “Never-ever-ever nu mai calcam in R.Moldova, este incredibil…”
Well, incredibil dar adevarat… si romantic, si comedic, si trist, si imbucurator pentru ca nu-i ca la nimeni altul
However, on Friday 7 May 2010 around 12:00-13:00 in Limassol, I was pretty lucky to observe this amazing effect.
There was only 1 sea-cargo, near horizon which was optically affected. At the horizon level, there was a band of a slight darker colour compared to sea or sky. That cargo-ship was optically lifted un-inverted on top of the band. As the effect was fading away, there was a mirror-like image of the cargo-ship on the same level, departing from the ship itself towards left-side…
Few minutes later after observing the effect, when taking our lunch out to the company-terrace, fata morgana was already gone … It is as true as it’s said “Here She is, and here She’s not…”
I suppose, in general terms experiencing Fata Morgana is as nice as experiencing Tramontane
Random thoughts on current events:
Kyrgystan riots 7 April 2010:
Yes, may be just coincidences…
As in “Hercule Poirot´s Christmas", I’d say “I can accept one coincidence", but then…
However, I wanted something more to my MoldoRomanian soul-and-heart.
Few weeks this bothered my mind in the background… And finally yesterday, during drinks color-solubility-density-taste experiments with Igor, we have found the layering formula of some selected drinks. If you played with cocktails and shots on your own, you might have noticed that drinks’ color, density, solubility and taste-class restrictions are quite hard for a layered drink, especially when you have a strict pattern of color.
Today, I have tried to produce the first public version and it went pretty well I can say - the taste and the look are lovely!
