Over on that Other site which shall not be mentioned there is some talk about the über-fail of the Israeli armed forces in international waters, and on Swedish media it's the New Big Thing. Here, no one mentions it. Someone suggested it's because American news media won't touch it. Is that so? Amercians, have you seen any news reports on Israel attacking a convoy of relief ships to Gaza and killing nine ppl
Talking of Israel, I made Mandelbrot for today's 'bring-something-baked' at work. It's at least 8yr since I made some, not since I moved here. And I should make them more often, they're tasty, mmmm!
We also had tasty Indian food yesterday, at a new place just off the liquor store (Systembolaget). First we waited and waited, and then some meagre plates were brought... what, is this all? Then the sneaky proprietor brought the _real_ dish while smiling mischievously. Ooo the rogue! Then the food was so good that we have to go back, soon. Yum.
And speaking of yum, I just realised I won't be able to attend next week's Club Cosmos pub night -- I'll be in Mjölby then. Mjölby! Well, Motala hopefully, we have a whole railroad stretch
to do in only two days. I went to Mjölby once, in 1994 or something, on my way home from Vadstena. That's when I learned how to pronounce the name... it's not pretty. Maybe Motala is better.
On the subject of Cosmos, that's a really good TV series. The science I already know but I remember being thrilled by certain concepts and images in that show, like the klepsydra, and that we are star-stuff. To think it is 30yr old! Many of the future missions Sagan talks about in it have now been launched, like Cassini and Mars rovers, but some are still at least 25yr in the future, just like it was then (I'm looking at you, fusion power).
*** Newsflash: just got a surprise mail from amazon.com saying Thank you for your order, which I haven't placed. Not answering that one! Usually it's just stuff I've never even visited that sends me phishing spam but hey, this is too close to home. ***
