How Old Are You?

There are many criteria to understand how old is a person. But if you ask a person "after 30", everybody will say you that he/she doesn't want to think about the age because "I feel young else".

I'm "after" too and am often surprized to hear what persons I know say when they speak about their age. In poor words the main meaning is: it's a tragedy and the persons are afraid to think about it. I don't know, nobody wants to be thankful to the life for the age. Nobody wants to remember that there are so many persons that die after the birth, at the age of some years ecc.

My personal behaviour is unusual. I think, my age is very entertaining. Because I am much more free as I was when I was younger. I have not to think to conquist, to demonstrate, to, to... Even in our society where nobody respects others, the age is respected. It's true. So, I can even do or say stupidities, and the younger persons have to show respect to me. I'm young, but I'm old enough to enjoy this situation. It's incredibly entertaining.
Don't you think so?

On the photo is italian scientist Rita Levi Montalcini, born on April 22 in 1909. Nobel Prize in medicine 1986. Don't know how it is today, but till a year ago I know, she was a head of her laboratory.

To Be An Athlete Today

Is It Servility Or Wissdom?

Pls visit my new site "Mystic Gemstones"

Some of you will say maybe that this is a post for my other blog, "Animals As Friends" but the thoughts that come when I read about it are not about animals but about humans.

I read this notice different times today:

Scientists noticed a dolphin female that teaches other members of her group to move standing on the tail. It's something that the wild dolphins never do. It's a trick they learn in captivity. That female was ill 20 years ago and was recovered. She did not learn tricks but could see them maybe. And now she teaches others to do it. (photo)

I remembered a poem of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing in this context. I like this poem very much from the times of my study at the university.

Der Tanzbär

Ein Tanzbär war der Kett' entrissen,
Kam wieder in den Wald zurück,
Und tanzte seiner Schar ein Meisterstück
Auf den gewohnten Hinterfüßen.
"Seht", schrie er, "das ist Kunst; das lernt man in der Welt.
Tut es mir nach, wenn's euch gefällt,
und wenn ihr könnt!" - "Geh", brummt ein alter Bär,
"Dergleichen Kunst, sie sei so schwer,
Sie sei so rar sie sei,
Zeigt deinen niedern Geist und deine Sklaverei."

Ein großer Hofmann sein,
Ein Mann, dem Schmeichelei und List
Statt Witz und Tugend ist;
Der durch Kabalen steigt, des Fürsten Gunst erstieh
Mit Wort und Schwur als Komplimenten spielt,
Ein solcher Mann, ein großer Hofmann sein,
Schließt das Lob oder Tadel ein?(source)
The poem is about the Bear that runs away from the man and turns back in the forest. It shows the dance on the back legs, that learned during it's life on the cattle, to other bears and is proud that nobody can repeat this dance. One old Bear says: oh yes, it's the high art, it's very difficult, really. Shows your low spirit and servility.

Now, the thoughts I have reading these stories are: who is right -the dolphin-female or Lessing? I'm with Lessing. I think it's servility...

Today I read an article by CNN about solar energy that will become affordable for everybody and remembered a photo I made when we turnd home from sea. It's unusual sight here in Italy. Sincerely I could not understand why a country with so much sun and wind as this don't uses it at all practically. There are not so much places where you can see something like this. And the solar batteries are not so often to find too.

It's a pitty, really. Everybody could put some batteries on the roof of the own house and produce energy to sell it to other countries, I think. I don't think they would cost soooooooo much for the monster of energy like Enel. Or for the Country. Maybe I'm not right.

I wanted to install solar batteries once when they spoke about governative help to the persons that want to do it. But it was not true. And the prices were so high, that I had to renounce. I would do it. And the article of CNN gave a hope to me. But I think it's not for Italy... unfortunatelly.

THIS Is The Doctor Everybody of Us Has To Choose

Pls visit my new site "Mystic Gemstones"

My friends are meditians and they think much about my healt too. This is one of advances they sent me yesterday. (the joke is not new and is even translated in different languages, but I hope you will enjoy remembering it)

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer ; that's like saying you can extend the life& nbsp;of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:
'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO! What a Ride'

AND......

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2 The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans..

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION

Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Shakespeare's first "Theater"

Non all my life but many years of it I was sure that Shakespeare was not a single person but a sort of a special name for a group of persons. Scientists wrote about expertises of the texts and graphia and these followed a decision: they, texts, were written by different persons.

That is the information I had.

Now I read an article from BBC: archeologists found the foundation of the theater where the first plays of Shakespeare were presented. It was the first special theater building in London.

15 years after the "Theater" was built, a new artist, Shakespeare, come there. Here "Hamlet" was presented for the first time .

In 1598 the "Theater" was transfered to the other part of Thames and the other theater, "Globe" that you see on the photo I found in Wikipedia, was built.

Archeoloists knew about existance of this first theater but now they have finally the confirmation of it.

Why Coltivate Transsexuals?

Pls visit my new site "Mystic Gemstones"

There are many different stories about sexual costumes in Thailand, but this one seems to be exagerated.

The notice is from BBC (photo and article) and here is the video that unfortunatelly is unpossible to embed in the blog.

One scool invented a special toilet for transsexual puples. Boys don't accept them, girls don't accept them, but there are always about 10-20% of puples that at 12-17 years of age just declare themselves as transsexuals.

I asked the headmaster whether they were not too young to be making decisions about their gender.

He said that, in his 35 years of working in the Thai education system, he had come across many boys like this, and they never changed. Many go on as adults to have sex-change surgery, while others will live as gay men, he said.

I learned the story of transsexuals and acceptance of them in the human history about a year ago. It was said, between all, that it was normal use in poor families to educate beautiful boys as females to sell them later to rich men and to facilitate their life as adults.

Here is the first sentence from this article:
It (this school) is situated in Thailand's impoverished north-east, and most of the pupils are the children of farmers.
Maybe THIS is the reason of this strange enormous number of boys making this not less strange decision at this age?

Russian Roads

Pls visit my new site "Mystic Gemstones"

These pictures made on 31/08/2006 goes round the internet from that day. I found them this time in this collection of 5 mostly dangerous roads in the world. Here is the explanation of what you see there:
The official federal-government highway to Yakutsk, and it is also the only one to get there. This can turn into a major humanitarian disaster during rainy spells, when the usual clay covering of the road turns into impassable mud blanket, swallowing trucks and tractors alike.
How long I remember myself but the greatest glassics of all times write about it ever, and the proverbs tell it too: The biggest problem in Russia are the roads and... well,the next part of the proverb is only for Russians.

He Is Not Nacked -He Has A Sock!

Pls visit my new site "Mystic Gemstones"

My friends send me these sorts of videos from time to time. And I tell you the truth -I like these performances. I coud never understand how they do it. Even if I heard the explanations.

This first video is, sincerely, not the best among them. Maybe the magician is young else. Once I've seen the women weared every time new classic dance and XVIII century clothes. It was more beautiful.



But now I wanted to show you these 2 videos to decise: who is the best. Italian or Chinese. Italian is not completely nacked as he says because he has one sock. But it seems he is faster ;-)))





So, who is the best?
