Being healthy is being an extrovert. (at least for the extroverts) Thinking as the ultimate act.

Scientists may have evidence that our personality plays into our eating habits. People who are open and extroverted eat more fruits and vegetables than others, according to new research.

The new report, published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, analyzed the eating habits of more than 1,000 young adults ages 17 to 25. Researchers gave participants a test to measure for the “Big Five” personality traits: openness to experience, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Then they assigned some participants to keep a food diary for 21 days and others for 13 days, in hopes of encouraging more people to complete the task.

Participants who scored higher than average for openness (the preference for new experiences and variety) ate about 4.5 more servings of combined fruit and veggies per week than their less open peers. They also consumed less unhealthy food, such as potato chips or fries. (1)

A society which glorifies being… adventurous, finds out that… being adventurous is good! Wow! Din’t see that coming! 🙂

I suppose thinking alone cannot make someone eat healthy.

We are too much focused on doing.

And we have forgotten than the ultimate act is thinking.

Socrates stayed his whole life in Athens.

And yet, he traveled everywhere…

Araouane – Deafening silence…

A small village in the middle of nowhere, just north of Timbuktu.
Makes you feel serene and calm.
Without really understanding why.
It could be the scenery.
Or just an inherent sense of completion imposed by the nature’s wisdom and power which transcends the place.
It is always the silence which speaks louder…

Apple maps + STUPID people = Death (or… “against technology”)

Police have warned that inaccuracies in Apple Maps could be “life-threatening” to motorists in Australia’s searing heat. Officers in Mildura, Victoria, said they had had to assist drivers stranded after following the software’s directions. Some of the drivers had had no food or water for 24 hours.

“Tests on the mapping system by police confirm the mapping systems lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, approximately 70km [45 miles] away from the actual location of Mildura” (see photo) police said.

How stupid must one be to rely on a machine for his safety?

How much must someone trust machines (and not himself) so that he values a phone’s maps more than his own skills and knowledge?

NO. It is not Apple’s fault! Take a map. Learn how to read it. Know the area you travel to. Be a human. Not a FUCKING MACHINE. Idiots…

Kythera & Harmonia Philosophica

It may be so that Kythera (Gr. Κύθηρα) are known as the place where the Harmonia Philosophica thesis was first formulated (see Harmonia Philosophica). However Kythera are also the best… hmmm I mean the WORST place in the world. You should NEVER go there. You should NEVER visit it! (you see, I must admit that I really need the place untouched as it is now, without the hordes of tourists that storm in other islands)

Well, I think this is it. If a picture is a thousand words, then I have written too much… Live your life.
