This way for the gas

Ieri a fost ultima zi in care se puteau inscrie copertele de carte pentru BOOK COVER DESIGN CONTEST No.4 (Venus febriculosa). Tema a fost: "This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen" a lui Tadeusz Borowski. Consulatul Poloniei de la Los Angeles s-a implicat in acest proiect si nu-i de mirare avand in vedere ca este vorba de o colectie de memorii personale desprinse din istoria horror a Auschwitz-ului. Mai exact de la ajungerea primului tren cu prizonieri evrei polonezi, in lagarul de concentrare.

If you did this

I found this today on the big fat web. It's a classic typo-motivational-sort-of-poster, all right, but let me continue this by adding: If you wrote this, you must have some boring job, no job or you need a job. Also you are wrong. That's why you probably think that fortune, luck, wealth and blessings can put you above some population. A house, some food, a healthy body and literacy can't be any good without a healthy mind. I'm not gonna preach about soul or ..let's say personality, but i can't just read this crap and feel suddenly lucky. And happy. Sure i can do my best to use what i have and help some unlucky people on the way. Feel good about it. Motivate myself etc. But i will always believe that a great soul (man, mind, personality.. pick whatever sounds nicer) doesn't need a perfect little life to be happy and feel complete. Or maybe I'm wrong and you are definitely luckier than me.

But wait! I still got the 3 billion people to be king of ...'cuz i read your crap.
