Anything from a bridge camera to a DSLR would do just fine. So, it really does not matter whether a person is a Nikon, Canon, Olympus or any other brand user.

"Barack Obama was in Germany today, and 100,000 people showed up. There were so many Germans shouting and screaming that France surrendered just in case." -Craig Ferguson

End Of The World. Or Is It?

The news and especially TV, went a little over board, if you know what I mean, when they were reporting on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN, and the impending catastrophe when it swallowed the planet and spat us out into some blackhole or something.

If you are one of those who remember that, and have been using is to explain your insomnia, you can always check
this site for the latest status on any catastrophic, earth-engulfing side effects.

According to the people at CERN, the smaller the object you are studying, the bigger the detector you need to see it. That's the reason you need something that is 27 kilometers around, instead of something smaller like a microscope that you would use to study bacteria. After all, we are talking about sub-atomic particle here...

Belly Button Lint

What is belly button lint?

"A mixture of clothing fibers and dead skin is "surfed" into the typical belly button by mid-weight happy trails", suggests Karl Kruszelnicki of the University of Sydney. According to Wired, Mena Suvari and Britney Spears were spared this indignity, as were our Cro-Magnon ancestors. Why? Mena's outie doesn't collect it, Brit's piercing blocks it, and Ogg's thick body hair stopped fuzz migration.

Destroy a meeting - How To Mini-Series

We were about 9 people in the conference room, meeting to discuss a new web portal. About 20 minutes into the meeting, I just had to message (SMS) another colleague across the table.

Me: This is sooo, boring.
He: I don't care, as long as I get my salary. Do you think this will lead to a physical fight?
Me: Let hope so, at least a cat-fight...
He: I hope there is a fight. There are a couple of others here I want to beat up.

Well, that was the end of the meeting, as far as I was concerned. Choking, I had to leave the room, before everyone ended up with coffee sprayed from my nose...

I Am Being Watched

I think that someone must have surveillance equipment set up in my car, because every once in a while, someone on the radio will tell me what what station I'm listening to. It's the same with the TV in my living room.

That really freaks me out, you know?
