maintaining mental health

Bill Gates, profession: philantrop and good-doer.

Saw an SUV, standing half on the footpath, a sign saying:

dear police, dear regulatory authority, here it is allowed to park on the footpath, reference §§§….

After walking on for a few meters I return, leaving a note: dear driver, i am wondering if it is about doing what is legally allowed or what is reasonable and thoughtful.

Parship und Statistik: alle 11 Min verliebt sich jemand, es macht freilich nur Sinn, wenn sich 2 verlieben und dann noch gegenseitig – Caravaggio ist eh unschlagbar.
Parship hat aber nun neue Plakate – endlich haben die alten Ladenhüter es auch geschafft😈

Parship and statistics: every 11 minutes someone falls in love, but it only makes sense if 2 fall in love and then even fall in love with each other – Caravaggio is unbeatable anyway.
But Parship has new posters now – it seems that finally the old shelf warmers have made it.😈

(in the meantime they changed again: interesting how images of such services change: from originally “selling people”, now selling social relationships and even attitudes – resembling some form of Gleichklang – harmony)

Daily Malice

Seeing this fellow, I felt tempted to find some comforting words like: don’t worry. Even if you look ugly, you may have some inner values … – that is what really counts.
The real and serious point: why is it that they bread dogs, so much against nature? Even leading to the poor fellows suffering ill-health at some stage, e.g. suffocation, spinal dispositioning, hip-problems …

A new laptop, the worst I ever owned. To some extent it is not a problem HP is responsible for (windows 10 is just a disgrace), but to some extent it means there is a good part left for HP: a repair under warrantee had not been undertaken properly; the battery does not keep up with what had been promised (to say the least); and not least the figuration of the machine is overcomplex, thus the opposite of userfriendly, contradictory and not well thought through.
Writing and submitting a feedback (“esteemed customer and user, we highly value your opinion and reporting your experience allows us to improve our performance”) had been another waste of time, a message that had been ignored. On the issue of privacy from my side: I will surely not recommend HP to others.

“I see said the blind man” – one of the favourite phrases, Bob, an old friend of mine, used to say. He surely would have said so, seeing this:

It is a special application, part of a general application. The applicant is asked to complete this form in case s/he needs a barrier-free version, the font-seize surely not allowing access for those who have limited eye-sight.

It reminds me of a toilet, the door hosting a large sign

The problem: the door had been too narrow to access it even with an ordinary small wheel chair

Una risposta a "maintaining mental health"

  1. It reminds me of a poem composed by Trilussa , a romanesque poet appreciated for his satire.

    Che cane buffo! E dove l’hai trovato?
    Er vecchio me rispose: “È brutto assai
    ma nun me lassa mai, s’è affezzionato”.
    L’unica compagnia che m’è rimasta
    fra tanti amichi è ‘sto lupetto nero:
    nun è de razza è vero, ma m’è fedele e basta.
    Io nun faccio questione de colore:
    l’azzioni bone e belle vengheno su dar core,
    sotto qualunque pelle.

    Not sure if a digital translator can manage the vernacular language. This is my translation.

    “What a wierd dog! Where did you find it?” I asked.
    The old man answered:”He is ugly indeed
    But he never leaves me alone, he is so fond of me.
    The only one still standing by me
    among the many friends I used to have,
    yes, the only mate left to me is this black little woolfy doggy:
    he certainly doesn’t have pedigree, true!
    However he is faithful to me unquestionably.
    I do not mind his colour, no, I really don’t:
    good deeds spring from the heart
    whatever kind of skin may cover it.
