Found on Fefes Blog Nach der Meldung neulich, dass sie in Weißrussland Menschen wegen Applaudierens festnehmen, dachte ich ja, wow, das ist nicht zu toppen. Aber stimmt nicht. Jetzt haben sie dort einen Einhändigen (!) wegen Applaudierens verhaftet.Und das ist noch nicht alles! Sie haben auch einen Stummen verhaftet, weil er regierungsfeindliche Slogans gebrüllt haben soll."There was one case where deaf and mute person was accused of shouting antigovernmental slogans," she says. "Last week there was yet another case when a teacher was arrested while he was riding a bike and was accused of waving his arms and shouting something in a kind of protest."

This was the first model kit my father built for me, I was 5 years old I think... I had seen him building kits before, but one day on a vacation he decided that this one was to be specially for me, I got to keep it... it was the first of a long row of kits, first built by him for me, later built buy myself... by now, my son enjoys watching me build kits, something my father would have been proud off.
Some details - the kit was purchased around 1978, it's a Revell 1:64 - a pretty rare scale, nowadays they're either 1:32, 1:72 or 1:144. The paint job wasn't as specified in the manual (it should have been camo painted), but my father remembered from his younger years that Starfighters were first all in plain silver (unpainted aluminium)
Found on Fefes Blog Der Preis für den dämlichsten Tweet aller Zeiten geht an *trommelwirbel*: Alvar Freude für diesen mentalen Volltreffer:#Fefe irrt: bit.ly/lpfRyH – Wir Sachverständige werden nicht bezahlt, kriegen nur eine kleine "Auswandsentschädigung". #eidgNein, nein, liebes Finanzamt, ich hatte keine Einnahmen, ich wurde nur bezahlt. m(Hat jemand eine gute Idee für Namensgeber für diesen Award? Ich habe so ein Gefühl, dass wir den noch häufiger brauchen werden.Update: Leute, Leute, an eurer Lesekompetenz müssen wir aber noch arbeiten. Nur weil Alvar mal einen debilen Tweet rausgehauen hat, heißt das noch nicht, dass Alvar doof ist oder ich Alvar für doof halte oder dass ich "Beef" mit Alvar habe. Und Einzelne heben jetzt auf diesen Tippfehler ab. Meine Güte! You can find it here: http://blog.fefe.de/?ts=b0ede011
Today I got to pass on one of my favourite childhood toys to my son - lovingly preserved and stowed away by my father about two decades ago, as he somehow new that he'd have a grandkid that would need this... a Playmobil pirate ship, with all the trimmings, and with the non-politically-correct guns, cutlasses etc. that pirate ships used to have. Actually, the guns even fire small wood cannonballs, and if I were to take a Chrono to test them, I wouldn't be surprised if they broke the legal EU limit to be classed as child toys (muzzle energy >0,5J)
Still, it feels great to pass this on, and to play all those great games again that I played at that age - only this time, I'm the parent, and I'm stuck with defending the treasure against the cool pirates :-(
