Rainy morning binge

Binging on Netflix on a rainy Saturday morning seems like a good way to relax.

For Upstairs Neighbours, Noise Is An Art Form

My wife sent me a link to this video that explains the incomprehensible sounds many of us hear from our upstairs neighbours. It's funny, in a sadistic way

My wife sent me a link to this video that explains the incomprehensible sounds many of us hear from our upstairs neighbours. It’s funny, in a sadistic way:

Little Red Flowers

These flowers seem to all over Modiin. I have no idea what they’re called but they’re pretty.

My blog-Twitter stats synchronicity

A little synchronicity between my Twitter stats and my blog stats. Just sharing my momentary diversion.

I just noticed that there is a little synchronicity between my blog stats and my Twitter stats. 4,022 blog posts alongside 40.2k tweets … See? 😁

Blog stats
4,022 blog posts already … boy, where did the time go?
My Twitter stats
40,2k tweets and more than a decade on Twitter. Where did that time go?

I doubt very much that there are any stars and/or planets in alignment for this one. Just the same, it’s a fun little thing for me.

Dachshund eating a banana like a human

This video of a long-haired Dachshund eating a banana like a human is for those days when the world feels a little too unbearable.

Thanks to Wil Wheaton for the links.

Your kids, when you are in a rush

Few creatures are slower than your kids when you are in a rush. It seems to be a universal law of nature.

It is amazing just how slowly kids move when you are in a rush to go anywhere. It is almost as if they are the Universe’s reminder to slow down and smell the flowers, coffee or something.

I had to laugh when my wife shared this video with me on Facebook the other day. We have a running joke that our daughter is slower than a snail moving backwards, up a hill. This is pretty close.

When the Fort Worth Police Department tried to teach a Stormtrooper to hit a target

It seems that even the Fort Worth Police Department shooting instructors struggle to teach Stormtroopers to hit a target. This awesome recruitment video has been doing the rounds on Facebook and it is really funny.

My wife also pointed out this interview with Darth Vader. It seems even he doesn’t have what it takes to join the Fort Worth Police Department …

Small wins when learning a new language

Nothing quite shows progress in learning a new language than being able to have those little, routine conversations in your new language.

Small wins when learning a new language include being able to have a short conversation about the cost of take-away coffee or checking if your doctor’s office has an early time-slot in your new language.

The big win is being able to type that, coherently, in the new language!
