Nuclear Detonation Timeline “1945-1998”

It’s pretty sick when you think about all the money that is needed for one nuclear detonation. This money can certainly be used to other purposes.

Orchestra flashmob in Barcelona, Spain

The YouTube description:

On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign “Som Sabadell” (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs.

And to whom it may concern, this is Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. And yes, it’s beautiful.

This is how your suitcase disappears when you forget them

Sometimes a suitcase gets lost at the airport when you go on holiday. We have discovered where the suitcases go: if they remain at the airport for too long, they go in the dust cart. Anyway, so it seems. According to airport authorities in Christchurch, however, it was a new type of “dummy luggage” to test the system. These suitcases, mostly filled with old books and newspaper, were thrown away after they had demonstrated its value.

Watching Game of Thrones – Season 1

Recently, I begun watching ‘Game of Thrones‘, the TV series. As per Wikipedia: “Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series”.
I discovered the TV series are based on a series of high fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin (now thát’s an ugly website!). A Game of Thrones is the first book in ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’. It was first published on 6 August 1996. The novel won the 1997 Locus Award, and was nominated for both the 1998 Nebula Award and the 1997 World Fantasy Award.

The TV series get a 9.4 out of 10 on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), which is pretty high… and so are my expectation on this TV series.
