I just realised what a sad song Brothers in arms by Dire Straits is.

I'd probably change a few words if i were to perform it, but most of all, i'd make a much stronger instrumental part towards the end to really send a message out to those i shared a common duty with in a place so far away from our homes.

Wouldn't it be neat if +Ben & Jerry's​ Greek Style ice cream was made with honey from Greece?

Mika Väisänen on why he #loves   #coding  
At the moment, I would rather be programming than writing this blog post.It’s my passion. I simply love it. But why? Why is programming so much fun?

You lay out interesting points, arl! I think the subtle difference with the EFF Badger and relevant targeted advertising is that EFF would like to allow you to walk without a server farm of automated eyes behind your back because it's kind of creepy, not because those eyes actually might produce an improved user experience.

But now that you mention it, targeted advertising seems rather untargeted, even without considering the spam.

Sincerely impressive covers of some +Led Zeppelin songs. Performed by those +Foo Fighters , Kid Rock , Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart featuring the ever awesome Jason Bonham. Even the remaining Zeppelins (and Barry-O, among others in the audience) seemed impressed. I'd just wished they hadn't cut those songs down -- they were all too short!

While we're on the topic of the +Foo Fighters​, here's a pretty good article on "the Nicest Man in Rock" Dave Grohl, coffee, family life, and, you know, those bands he's played in.
Even before he fell off a stage, the 46-year-old Foo Fighters frontman was feeling creaky.

Sometimes, i forget that the Finnish baseball, pesäpallo or "pesis", is actually available only in Finland.

From the article: Jarring as it might look, pesäpallo is no mere curiosity in Finland. It is considered the national sport, and has been known to elicit uncharacteristic displays of emotion from the famously stoic Finns. Clapping, for instance, and speaking.

I don't agree with the article that pesis is particularly strange, but then again, i'm not that familiar with American baseball.

This is a repost. I forgot to include the link last time.

For anyone who has ever grumbled about the plodding pace of play in baseball, the Finnish version of the game offers something previously unimaginable: America’s pastime without wasted time.

Gaza is possibly the strongest song #Marillion  has ever created. It's no easy listen, but an important one.

EPIC DSCOVR: the Dark side of the moon, in fact, isn't.

The far side of the moon, illuminated by the sun, is seen as it crosses between our 'EPIC' camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite, and the Earth - one million miles away. Check it out: http://go.nasa.gov/1Dq0IOh #EarthRightNow

Went there for a coffee and walked out having had a carrot & orange juice with ginger, an utmost delectable bacon and avocado sandwich, a carrot cake, and a coffee -- with a huge smile. I will most certainly return to De Overkant next time i'm in the Hague for more of that, and to say hi to the excellent gentleman who recommended me that set.

Greasy. That pretty much sums it up. The food is greasy, the place is greasy. Ungh. Somebody else will like it, but Hesburger is not for me.

Beef for Real Men (and Real Women) who don't mind a coma for the rest of the day. Yeah, the portions are big. Well worth a visit once or twice a year.

Spiltan is the Bromarf hang out, grease food joint and watering hole. The service is friendly (in swedish at least) but don't expect gourmet food here. I've heard that the pizzas are ok, so that's what i'll be trying next time. The "lövbiff" (big hammered-flat beef) with a mound of fries was a bit over-fat for me. They did offer my son an ice cream and both of us a smile, so that's okay enough for me. Best place in town, i'm afraid :)

The doughnuts are excellent and as greasy as they should. Worth visiting once a year :)

Decent pizza. Nothing out of the ordinary. It's a franchise, so you'll get faultlessly cloned pizzas in any outlet.
