The more you drive the less intelligent you get

Since i remember myself, i had trouble falling asleep at the right time. I often spend hours bored in the bed until i actually fall asleep. Only in the last couple of years i finally discovered the cure that millions of people already found before me: reading.

Thank you, God, for giving me this insomnia. Reading books is great.

Lately i am reading even more, since i ride the train all the time. Driving would be much cheaper for me, but i choose paying for the train so i could read books.


I took the quote in the title from the cover of Radiohead’s “I Might Be Wrong” EP. Google suggests that a very similar quote appeared in the movie “Repo Man“; it’s not the first time i hear about it, so i guess i should rent it.

A little over the top.

Aloud

I already mentioned this brilliant song—Arcade Fire’s “No Cars Go”.

And i already mentioned reading rock lyrics aloud.

Try this. Read aloud the lyrics of “No Cars Go”. Important: If you know the melody and the beat, forget them and just read it:

We know a place where no planes go,
We know a place where no ships go,

Hey!
No cars go.
Where we know.

We know a place no space ships go,
We know a place where no subs go

Where we know.

Go! — Don’t go!

Us kids know
No cars go
Where we know.

Hey!

It’s totally Dr. Seuss.

Reality – Tel-Aviv – Vegas

I’m liberal, but Tel-Aviv is bad enough without becoming a cheap Vegas knock-off.

Wish, part 3

Hmm.

Someone left a comment on my post Wish, part 2. The comment was relevant, but it also included a spammish URL about Viagra.

What the hell is going on with the world?

Engrish – Docile

There is a flock of happy mermaid once upon a time, they played carefree in the ocean, until one day had a prince be drawn in ocean by the wave, is save by the little mermaid and then docile up coast, they were from now happy of together……

Apparently what happened is that Amazon.* brought about more integration between their international sites, so i can login with my account from Amazon.co.uk to Amazon.com. It’s stupid, but that’s how it is.

They say that i can’t merge the accounts completely for security reasons. I can think of more security problems from having the two accounts separated, but whatever.
