Swedish TV channel SVT made a short film about one of the funniest events held in my native town - Monstration (one mocking demonstrations of the May 1st).

Film is mostly in Russian with Swedish subtitles (I could not find Danish ones though)

Del 1 av 6: Monstration i Novosibirsk. Artiom Loskutov är konstnär från Novosibirsk som 1 maj varje år organiserar en Monstration. En festlig demonstration med opolitiska absurda budskap. Att utrycka sig fritt blir allt svårare i dagens Ryssland och myndigheterna försöker stoppa Monstrationen.

Reading books in translation is like playing Russian roulette. I've recently started reading "The Book of Disquiet" by Fernando Pessoa and I have been checking  some of his poetry too. Unfortunately I don't speak Portuguese so I have to read him in translation.

And that's where the problem lies. Here is the very same poem in original and in Russian and English translation

O poeta é um fingidor
Finge tão completamente
Que chega a fingir que é dor
A dor que deveras sente

The poet is a faker
Who's so good at his act
He even fakes the pain
Of pain he feels in fact.

Поэт — притворщик по роли,
Легко ему сделать вид,
Придумать саднящей боли
Подделку, что не болит.

If you speak both Russian and English you'll spot that the ending of the poem is completely different in these two translations. 

Russian one says (yeah triple translation makes everything better) 

The poet's role is "faker",
It's easy for him to fake
Invent a numb pain's
Imitation - that does not hurt.

In other words: in English translation the poet is faking a pain and actually feeling a pain (though a different one, perhaps) and in Russian he is just pretending that he is in pain when he is not.

English version is understandably more appealing to me. But unfortunately the only way to figure out which one is closer to the original is to move to Portugal and learn the language Pessoa was writing in...

I found a Russian translation that is much closer to +Osvaldo Doederlein's but even it introduces a something that's apparently is not in the original --- most probably to deliver poetic translation instead of the literal one.

Поэт измышляет миражи - 
Обманщик, правдивый до слез, 
Настолько, что вымыслит даже 
И боль, если больно всерьез. 

Но те, кто листает наследье, 
Почувствуют в час тишины 
Не две эти боли, а третью, 
Которой они лишены. 

И так, остановки не зная 
И голос рассудка глуша, 
Игрушка кружит заводная, 
А все говорят - душа.

It was an interesting trip - porting irregexp from V8 to Dart VM (almost) without writing any assembly. "If you have optimizing pipeline - you should use it more" that'd be the morale of this effort. 
 
Shoutout to +Jakob G! Thanks to his efforts while interning in Aarhus, the 1.9 release of the Dart VM includes a port of V8’s Irregexp Engine for regular expressions making your regular expressions up to 150 times faster than before! We chose to take a different approach to integrating the Irregexp Engine: reuse Dart’s existing optimizing compiler and code-generation backend. This reuse helps reduce maintenance cost and share optimization efforts: optimizations for Dart will benefit regular expressions and vice versa.

In V8, Irregexp compiles a regular expression by parsing it and converting it into an intermediate automaton representation, which V8 then analyzes, optimizes and finally directly generates native machine code. The V8 implementation requires a native-code backend for each supported host architecture. Indeed, at the time of writing V8 has 7 distinct Irregexp backends. 

In Dart, Irregexp initially compiles a regular expression, just as in V8, by parsing, converting, analyzing and optimizing it. Finally Dart generates IR (intermediate representation) instructions. This IR is the same representation used for ordinary Dart code and so we use the existing Dart optimizing compiler to further optimize the code and generate native machine code.

The Dart implementation has been tested against the same benchmark suite as developed for V8’s Irregexp. Here, the Dart VM is within a factor of two from V8. For short-running regular expressions, such as parsing URLs, Dart is actually faster due to a very fast entry to the generated matching code. 

There are several reasons we don’t hit the same peak performance as V8 across the board. For example, Dart spends more time on compiling regular expressions because, after building the Dart IR, we further optimize the code. Also, V8’s hand-tuned machine-code backends are expertly tailored to executing regular-expression code on each individual platform. The machine code Dart produces is not as efficient because the existing optimizing compiler can’t make the same assumptions about properties of the code (such as what to hold in registers and what not to). We will be looking at these issues, and due to the single shared Dart backend, improvements become improvements to the Dart VM as a whole.

We hope you enjoy Dart's new and improved regular expressions. Look for the new implementation starting with Dart 1.9, which is now in the developer channel.

This is almost as funny as a LSV's Three-Oblivion-Rings-Infinite-Loop.

Somebody created a slowly ticking down loop inside the Hearthstone game by combining two creatures: one that respawns when dead and one that deals damage to a random enemy when a new minion enters the battlefield.

See the video inside the article:

http://kotaku.com/combination-of-two-hearthstone-cards-results-in-16-minu-1729139487

[almost because a) it's not infinite and b) staged :)]
Hearthstone turns shouldn’t last more than a few seconds. And they rarely do, but there are always exceptions. Using Dreadsteed cards with Knife Jugglers is one of them, and this particular moment almost created a never-ending turn.

Remember a poem by Fernando Pessoa about the poets and pain, they fake non-faking? 

https://plus.google.com/+VyacheslavEgorov/posts/MFfexhstNTq

Today I was reading Heinrich Heine and suddenly found a poem that touches the same idea. I wonder if Pessoa's poem was inspired by Heine's? 

Ach Gott! im Scherz und unbewußt
Sprach ich was ich gefühlet;
Ich hab’ mit dem eignen Tod in der Brust
Den sterbenden Fechter gespielet.

Oh God! unknown I spoke in jest 
The things I felt most deeply; 
I've acted, with death in my very breast, 
The dying hero, cheaply.

Full poem in German: https://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Nun_ist_es_Zeit,_daß_ich_mit_Verstand

+Alexander Aprelev​ surprising because I arrived to a random city of Slovakia from Denmark - went for a walk and found a statue of Danish writer. I actually think it's the first HCA statue I saw in my life

Have unexplained desire to visit Georgia after watching this. Not only it's an amazingly well done modernization of the traditional dance, it also manages to show different spots-of-interest combining again modern and old.
