Nukeing hot!

I know my cheap puns may not go down too well, but as the outside temperatures are slowly but steadily rising to a predicted 36 degrees on the weekend, it really feels like what the heat wave must be after a nuclear bomb has been set off. I’m just an inch away from putting ice […]

It’s Sunday and it’s good!

Yepp, our German boys just wiped the floor (or more precisely, the lawn) with England‘s team and is now moving on to the quarter finals. Will be a tough call, though, no matter whether they will play against Mexico or Argentina. In Formula 1, Vettel scored a victory, too, which isn’t that bad, either, given […]

Treachery, Faith, and the Great River

*Star Trek – Deep Space Nine, ep. 6, season 7 You know, it’s kinda lucky for us that Adobe isn’t in the business of meddling with genetics or else they would probably turn us all into little Vorta or Jem’Hadar and implant some worshiping genes for Flash. Since they can’t, they obviously have to convince […]
