Pythagoras: “It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.”

Downhill skiing

January 22nd, 2015 on 23:59

Winter finally hit home for real! After some half serious attempts late last year and some weeks ago, it seems the snow from the past days is here to stay for the months to come, yayyy! :) Despite the ‘loss’ of a great deal of my ‘free’ time to snow plowing and no reception on the satellite TV (not watching much anyway), this means skiing season is about to begin, w00t!

I will be doing a lot more downhill skiing compared to last year (eeeeaasy as I didn’t do any downhill skiing at all last year!!?!), and wanna learn some new tricks on the slopes. The YouTube video below shows where I want (expect? :) ) my skiing skills to be at the end of this season, uhhhhh?!

WTF, seriously? Candide Thovex is having ‘one of those days’ again…fan-friggin-amazing and a must watch for skiing enthusiasts! :)

(he did have ‘one of those days’ before, check it out here!)

Microsoft had its ‘Windows 10′ event today (nothing to report there LoL), which made me think of the numbering of their OS versions…ha, counting from 1 to 10 by Bill Gates! ROTFLMAO

Blue Monday?!

January 19th, 2015 on 23:57

So, today is (/was) Blue Monday; the day which is declared to be the most depressing day of the year…apparently. :)

Not sure if you ‘felt’ any of it, but since there is an official formula to ‘proof’ its existence, I guess it ‘must’ be true. LoL

Just so you know, Blue Monday is calculated (pseudoscience though) according to the following formula:

frac{[W + D-d] T^Q}{M N_a}

W = weather, d=debt, T=time since Christmas, Q=time since failing our new year’s resolutions, M=low motivational levels, Na=the feeling of a need to take action and ’D’ is not defined.

 

If you have been hit by an instant depression, you can counter it through bluemonday.org; a nice alternative to make someone happy on this day and un-Blue yourself in the process, ha! :)
