At the end I only wished it was longer. Amazing. So simple. So beautiful, emotional and kinda... important. Love these guys who do what they love with such pride. Just want to hug them. No not really, but almost.

I don't like Buzz

To me it's alike an annoying spam-filter that just cluster my Buzz-inbox. I click on it once in a while - but only in order to empty it. Never look. I'm too curious to delete it entirely though - you never know when/if something will emerge. Today I did click - and looked, and found these wonderful pictures.

Ephemicropolis - citiscape made out of staples

Just wow. See artist Peter Root's work here.

What would you sacrifice to see your country win soccer's World Cup?

93% of the Englishmen would give up food for a week. 70% of the Italians would quite their jobs. Americans are most willing to give up their homes for success, while the South Koreans' were most willing to give up their love lifes. More than 40 percent offered to give up dating for a year, and one Australian says, "As an Australian, I’d give up my job to see the Italians not win".

Kudos to all and read more all stories here.

This is so unbelievably good

I have no idea who the people are talking about each subject, but they're obviously experts in their fields. And absolutely hammered while doing it. They then recreate the story with a famous actor in each one (they're plenty of good ones out there - plenty - I want to post all of them. But I won't). It's so simple. Great and unbelievably great. Love it.

I have no idea what these people were for/against

Not doing it doesn't make you better

Hence the blistering sun it was a while ago since I last went for a swim. It is so friggin nice outside all you want to do is escape indoors and run run run.

But today I decided that over-body muscles don't build themselves. So I went. And nearly drowned. It's true you don't get better by not doing it.

I also excused myself with the I'll-go-for-an-intense-25min-swim-instead-of-a-longer(-but-also-slower)-40min-one. It is by far worst thing I know. The lazy man's excuses for feeling good about not doing enough.

I almost repulse myself. Almost.

From the words of Fab; if you say so

There's smart and there's Kmart-smart
