Who do you see?

People with normal vision will see Albert Einstein in the picture. Nearsighted people will see Marilyn Monroe.

IF YOU see Einstein, then step back a ways to see Marilyn appear!

Share a joke

A ninety-year-old man is sitting on a park bench, sobbing, when a young man walks by and asks him what's wrong.
Through his tears the old man answers, "I'm just so in love with my twenty-five-year-old wife."
"What's wrong with that?" asks the young man.
Between the sobs and sniffles, he answers, "You can't understand. Every morning before she goes to work, she cooks me breakfast and kisses me and tells me she loves me ... at lunchtime she comes home and embraces me warmly, and then she makes my favorite meal. In the afternoon when she gets a break, she rushes home with ice cream, the best an old man could want. And then after a gourmet supper, she gives me a warm bath, and cuddles up with me all night."
He breaks down, no longer able to speak.
The young man puts his arm around him. "Oh, I think I see - I bet you just found out she's with you for your money?"
"No," the old man answers through his sobbing and tears, "I forgot where I live."

I hope all of you have found their homes for tonight - it's getting pretty cold outside

Cirrus minor, the WHO and the flu

Cirrus minor hatten wir letztes Mal, erinnert ihr euch noch? - Es ist ein anderer Name für den Nordstern (the North Pole star), der mit dem Sternbild Ursus minor verknüpft ist und eine Cirrus-ähnliche Bewölkung aufweist. Die Pink Floyd-Nummer ist seeehr psychodelisch.

The "flu", influenza, oder halt so ein blödes Virus hab ich gerade erwischt, kein Fieber aber halt Schnupfen und Schluckbeschwerden und mieses Allgemeinbefinden, aber bis morgen krieg ich das schon wieder so halbwegs hin...

Dazu passend ist "Go to the mirror" von Pink Floyd (mirror ist uns in der vorletzten Stunde untergekommen). Hoffentlich zeigen sich bei mir auch bald Anzeichen, dass ich wieder ordentlich hören kann - please heal me!

He seems to be completely unreceptive. Er scheint auf gar nichts zu reagieren
The tests I gave him show no sense at all. Die Tests, die ich gemacht habe, ergeben keinen Sinn
His eyes react to light the dials detect it. Seine Augen reagieren auf Licht, die Messskala zeigt es an
He hears but cannot answer to your call. Seine Ohren können hören, aber er kann nicht auf Fragen antworten

See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.

Listening comprehension

You will find the link to the audio-file in the schedule to the left. Or just click the following link: Audio-file

Unfortunately my Windows Media Player doesn't like this type of file, but any other player will do the trick (real player, vlc, quicktime, itunes...)

Office chairs

Different health hazards: poor lighting, the lack of an adjustable seat, the lack of knee clearance under the desk due to the storage of boxes, the monitor height being set too high, the phone being located at another desk behind the worker
