Nur ein Kinobesuch

Fri, 2008-06-13 16:46 by Hans-Georg

KinoticketWir wollten nach Jahren einmal wieder in ein richtiges Kino gehen, statt in unser Heimkino, teilweise nur, weil wir den Film sofort sehen wollten und nicht auf die DVD warten, die meist erst ein paar Monate später erscheint.

Ein deutschsprachiger Organspende-Ausweis lässt sich hier öffnen und am Computer ausfüllen, speichern und drucken.

Er ist so groß wie eine Kreditkarte und lässt sich zusammen mit Führerschein oder Personalausweis verstauen.

My personal opinion is that this is a barbaric cultural maladaptation that occasionally even kills its victims on the spot, not to mention any permanent skin health problems. I feel sorry for these men.

Travel report / Reisebericht

I have pondered the thought of reporting here, but I'll stick to the old format for now, so I don't break the series.

Ich habe überlegt, ob ich nicht hier berichten soll, aber ich bleibe vorerst beim alten Format, um die Serie nicht zu unterbrechen.

A treasure trove of more than 700 new species has been uncovered in the dark depths of oceans surrounding Antarctica, researchers report. (See a photo gallery of the finds.)

Heart-shaped sea urchins, carnivorous sponges, and giant sea spiders the size of dinner plates are among the surprising discoveries brought up from the seafloor about 2,300 to 19,700 feet (700 to 6,000 meters) beneath the Antarctic waves.

Boeing 777 crashed at Heathrow

Sat, 2008-01-19 11:24 by Hans-Georg

Both engines of the big airliner, manned with 136 passengers and 16 crew, failed 40 seconds before landing. Fuel contamination with water is one suspected cause. There were also rumors about a total electric failure. Read BBC News

Read Daily Mail article

I'm a pilot. I don't fly airliners, but I still understand some of the issues in a situation like this.

The articles didn't contain the really interesting information.

To fill in some of the blanks, I will now speculate. Please keep in mind that the following is mere speculation out of insufficient and possibly wrong information. Everything I write may be wrong. But it could have happened that way.

Filme der Woche im Fernsehen (DVB-T)

Sun, 2007-11-11 10:28 by Hans-Georg · Forum/category:

Mit dieser Ausgabe (2008-12-30) enden die Filmempfehlungen. Statt dessen gibt es jetzt das Heimkinoprogramm.

Ich werde sie vorerst nicht weiterführen, weil das Verhältnis von Effekt zu Aufwand sich ungünstig entwickelt hat. Die Hauptursache ist, dass ich mittlerweile die meisten im Fernsehen gezeigten Filme schon kenne und daher selbst nur noch sehr wenig davon habe, mich mit ihnen zu beschäftigen. Auch hat sich diese Publikation hier nicht weit herumgesprochen und wurde nur von wenigen Menschen gelesen.

Early Michna history

Preface: The Battle of White Mountain


The Thirty Years War flared into a continental struggle when Fredrick V, elector Palatine, left Heidelberg late in 1619 to assume the crown of Bohemia. In the following summer Maximilian I of Bavaria sent the army of the Catholic League, 25,000 troops strong, under the Bavarian field marshall Count of Tilly into Bohemia.

(I've added some more pictures to my second Australia album that I linked to in my previous post).

I'm back home safe and sound in Ohio after a nice couple days spent with Tini and family earlier this week, and now I have time to write about my last week in Australia.
