The structure of Freemasonry

I found this interesting vintage picture on the internet about the structure of Freemasonry. Worths studying.

What's wrong with what we eat

Everyone should listen to very carefully what Mark Bittman, a New York Times food writer, explains in this TED Talks video (20 minutes). He talks with a great wisdom about the overconsuming of meat and junk food, about the importance of eating more plants (and not as an ingredient but the plants themselves), and he shows how dramatic changes have been undergoing in the last century in the way we produce the food from family farming to industrial livestock and in the way we consume the food from home-made meals to premade (frozen, instant, fast-food etc.) meals. He also mentions the global environment aftereffects and for a sentence he points at a very interesting fact what I would like to highlight. He says that the breakpoint since that we began to care much less with the quality of food we ate and simultaneously the fast-food restaurants started to spread was the 1970's when the women left the homes and they became part of the labour market so they had less and less time to cook at home after work. Now that's a very good point of view what I haven't realized yet and what raises new questions about how the control of our food was taken from our mothers' and wives' hands to multinational companies who are far not as interested in giving us the healthiest and best quality food as our women used to be.

Mermaid in blue


A really creative and unconventional commercial presenting a small Indian village where the dwellers can turn back the time (in their own funny way) to make a lonely girl happy. It softly touches you and makes you smile. Simple and perfect. I love it.

3D tour in Guernica

Though I'm not a big Picasso fan, and I don't think that the traditional paintings need to be reinterpreted by virtual 3D view but I would find this video really useful to understand the abstract paintings of those surrealist painters like Dali or Miro.

Light way

This indoor floor light is cool!

Foggy Dubai

I wonder how it feels like when you look out the window of your office and you can see only clouds and the top of some skyscrapers.

Bored? Ideas for sale

Wow, what a simple and brilliant idea to sell fun-to-do ideas in a vending machine! I would definitely buy one just for fun, and I think people need these ideas much more than candies... Does anybody know where the nearest is?

Casette lamp

I am really fan of those creative ideas which show how to turn the used junks into something nice and new. This is a very good example:

Aqua forest

This aquarium decoration is amazing! If I ever have an aquarium again it will look like this for sure.

One of my all-time favorites:

- Which is worse: ignorance or apathy?
- I don't know and I don't care.

Shell home

This special house design reminds me to a mixture of the home of Yoda and the hobbits, though I wouldn't live in it for long term, but I hope that one day I will have a house which doesn't have any rectangular premises with sharp corners and edges, only curved walls and asymmetric-shaped rooms.

Above the clouds

I hope one day I can see a view like this with my own eyes.

Who is able to eat that?!?

I saw this movie a few weeks ago. It wasn't that Hollywood blockbuster, but it is a really good drama about the dark side of diversity and how distrust, prejudice and distance-keeping can ruin our ordinary life. The film introduces different lives what look independent from each other at first sight but at certain points of the story they all link together and affect the consequences. What's sure is that this movie won't leave you indifferent and will wake some new thoughts about life and people. My only critical remark is that it was totally unnecessary to cast Sandra Bullock and Brendon Fraser just to "sell" this movie with their names, their performance were terrible, most of the other actors/actresses were unknown though but they acted brilliantly.

Apollo and Starbuck

I could watch the latest episode of Battlestar Galactica with a slight delay and while I watched it I paused it for a few minutes to make a cup of tea. When I returned I saw that accidentally I paused at this frame. First I was just staring at it and I liked it so much that I made a screenshot of it.
