Total Lunar Eclipse (Super Blue Blood Moon), January 31, 2018


Yesterday sister sent me a request over an e-mail if I could print some document for her. Of course I wanted to grant her wish immediately only to find out after first page being printed, a black cartridge was out. Since it was only 6 pm and the nearest shop that sells cartridges was still open for an hour, I decided to take a walk. It was a nice weather outside, low temperatures (7 °C) felt...

The most obvious use case right now I see...

Geslo Je suis Charlie (Jaz sem Charlie), ki se je razpaslo po nedavnih napadih na pariški satirični častnik Charlie Hebdo predvsem po družbenih omrežjih, je po mojem popolnoma zgrešeno. Jaz si to gesto namreč prevajam kot Tudi jaz bom risal nespoštljive karikature do muslimanov. To, kar je počel Charlie Hebdo s prerokom Mohamedom, je nespoštljivo do muslimanov, saj je v Islamu že od samega...
