Bloedloos operenen niet alleen frustratie maar ook leerzaam.

Een inzichtelijk artikel in het Nederlands Dagblad.


Er staat natuurlijk niets nieuws voor ons in, maar wel grappig om te zien hoe het bij academici ook doordringt....

The Wind in the Willows.... Mooi boek denk ik, dus wellicht de moeite om eens te lezen.

 
Dit boek is geschreven door Kenneth Grahame en is in 1908 uitgegeven, en omdat het copyright natuurlijk al lang en breed verlopen is is het zelfs gratis in te zien en te downloaden.
 
Veel leesplezier deze vakantie.... ;-)

Waarom we geen deel van de wereld willen zijn...

Slechte omgang bederft nuttige gewoonten...


Once again, Jehovah is proved true.  "Bad associations, spoil useful habits".
Ex-boyfriend jailed for double shooting
Former serviceman convicted of murder and GBH charges after gunning down girlfriend's parents
A jilted boyfriend was jailed for life today for shooting his ex-girlfriend's parents, after blaming them for breaking up their relationship.

Jonathan Cock, 24, killed businessman Adam Hustler, and left his wife, Amanda, seriously wounded after they told him their daughter Danielle, 20, did not want to see him.
Cock, a former RAF serviceman, also aimed a shot at Danielle but she escaped with a minor arm injury. Cock then shot himself through the mouth but survived. Despite suffering brain damage he was able to drive home, where he was arrested by armed police the next morning.

Truro crown court heard that the victims were Jehovah's Witnesses, who disapproved of their daughter seeing Cock, even after he converted to their faith. Mrs Hustler sat in court flanked by Danielle and her younger sister Abigail, 16, as Cock was jailed. Earlier Danielle sobbed as the court was played the recording of the 999 call she made during the shooting, in which screaming and gunshot blasts can be heard in the background.
Cock, from Penzance, shot Adam Hustler, 41, and Amanda Hustler, 40, on the steps of their home at Porth Kea, near Truro, last September. He shot at Danielle through the window of the house as she was calling the police.

He had gone to the house with a rifle and 15 bullets after begging Danielle to meet him and warning her she had a choice between "the easy way and the hard way". Following the shooting he texted her to say: "I can't believe you chose the hard option."
He went out with Danielle for a year, and at first she kept their relationship secret from her parents because he was not a Jehovah's Witness.

She said she ended their friendship three weeks before the killing because he was arrogant and controlling, but he blamed her parents and bombarded her with texts asking her to take him back. When she told him her decision was final, he called her to ask for a final meeting and then went to the house with the gun when she refused.

Cock admitted murdering Adam Hustler, causing grievous bodily harm to Amanda Hustler, and possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life. He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 25 years.
The judge, Mr Justice Royce, told him: "The carnage that you caused that night was chilling and terrible and tragic. Its effects on the Hustler family could not have been more devastating.

"There are no doubt thousands and thousands of young men in this country every day who are romantically thwarted and feel depressed and angry about it, but your reaction was extreme and selfish.
"This was a terrible murder, coupled with the shooting of Mrs Hustler and the experience suffered by her and her daughters was terrifying."

The judge quoted Mrs Hustler's victim impact statement in which she spoke about the loss of her husband and said: "I have lost my friend, my mentor, my clown, my lover, my companion of 24 years. I have had my life and that of my children and family ransacked by these actions. I have lost the man of my life."
Sarah Munro QC, prosecuting, said Cock met Danielle when both worked for her father's drain-clearing business in Truro. She said: "Danielle's family are devout Jehovah's Witnesses and the rules of their faith prohibit any relationship with non-believers."

The shooting took place on the birthday of Danielle's sister Abigail. She also saw her parents being shot.


Kwantum bewustzijn en andere voodoo ;-)


Kwantum bewustzijn, is een van de laatste en misschien wel tot nu toe vaagste theorie├źn die bij gebrek aan duidelijke gegevens teruggrijpen op bekende principes uit de kwantum mechanica om ze toch plausibele te laten klinken.

Lees hier van F. van Dongen een artikel over het Kwantum Bewustzijn.

En lees op dit blog de uitleg over waarom het bovenstaande niet klopt :  http://denkeensechtna.blogspot.com/2009/06/quantum-bewustzijn.html


Interessante gedachtes over vriendschap....


What is a True Friend but someone whome you call a friend not when faced with him, but when among others ?


Friendship is not just about "holding", but it's also about being able to let go...


When faced with opposition more grave to you then to your friends, there true nature will be reveiled.

Prince zegt hier dat hij Jehovah's Getuigen is  enz.
Groetjes,Shane

Voedsel noodpakket.

Dacht je misschien dat Jehovah's Getuigen als enige een noodpakket moeten aanleggen ?
 
Nou niet dus !
 
Blijkbaar is dit tegenwoordig ook vereist bij de Latter Day Saints (LDS, mormomen voor vrienden...)

Very funny Scotty... Now beam down my clothes !

Ik hoop nog steeds op de dag dat ik mag melden dat we mensen en spullen kunnen overbeamen.

Tot die tijd zullen we het moeten doen met gewoon beamen.
Ik had al eens geschreven over betaalbare zakformaat beamers, zie

Er is nu echter een nieuwe Gadget op de markt, namelijk de Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Projector Camera.
Deze 12,1 MP digitale camera heeft namelijk in ingebouwde projector.
De beeldkwaliteit is niet echt om over naar huis te schrijven, maar goed genoeg om indruk op je vrienden te maken ;-) door vers geschoten foto's op een muur/plafon te projecteren zodat men meteen ziet hoe de foto gelukt is....

Op de gebruikelijke fora is er heelwat (veel van hetzelfde) over geschreven :
Nou ben ik erg benieuwd hoeveel minuten deze camera het volhoud op een verse set batterijen ;-)
