Is a Picture Worth a Thousand Words?

Yes, it is. Funny is the phrase “Important it’s not how you look, it’s how you are”! Funny or not, the concept just does not fit to actual life style of rich societies, never has and never will. People thinking that way are the ones living on a platform of lyric thoughts, the eternal dreamers, […]


I wonder how many people know what an USB (Universal Serial Bus) is and how many people, although knowing what it is for, know as well what does USB stand for… The huge multitude of IT acronyms used to operate a computer, that wonderful machine we already can’t live without, are normally parroted by the […]


Fifty! What can be said about this? As far I know, whatever we may say will be nothing that can be taken as an absolute truth or even be taken as something interesting. It will depend, of course, on who you are, where are you coming from and where are you going to. Definitely, when […]

Solitude Standing

You probably already […]

Celebrating Women

I would say that many things on a social, political or intellectual point of view could cross my mind about Women or about the complexity involving this female side of mankind in this International Women’s Day 2009.
