My birthday

with 10 comments

Hi all, Thursday April 17th is a special day… Eleonidas was born 32 years ago!

Alas, yes, today is my birthday. Yes, I know I’m getting old but the only thing I don’t want for my birthday is to be reminded of it.

I wanted to share a birthday cake with you:

And remember: It takes a lot of time to grow young (P.Picasso)

leave a comment »

[Via Modern Mechanix]

Read the predictions that were made for life in 2008 (as published in a journal from the 60s called ‘Mechanix Illustrated’)!

  • Do you think we’ll ever have things as described here?
  • You are a futurebuilder, what is your best innovation for 2025?

Some of you’ve asked me about British TV shows. Here a dear friend of mine -too 🙂 – recommend us some.

Just like he points out, browse the BBC Comedy index, and then check if you can find the comedy show you want at YouTube.com

My own recommendation: ‘Little Britain

3rd world country…LOL.

Here’s a list with the 50 Greatest Sketches of all time.

And Channel 4’s list. I really like their number ONE! (Little Britain “Swimming Pool”): Watch this man with ‘slight fear of water’ (HAHAHA)

What happened to this man?

Ok, guessing round begins! (try using modals of deduction, present or past)

My first guess: He might be a FCE student waiting for the results…
