I Blog, Therefore I Am

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 28, 2015 in Internet |

The art of blogging, it is fair to say, has come of age. Although more younger people are just beginning to write their thoughts and lives for the Internet public to see, there are millions of older bloggers who have managed to overcome the first three months of cyberlife and continue to write. They have […]

Trump’s Deportation Plans: A Reminder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 26, 2015 in News & Opinion |

To follow the political news in the USA, especially when it comes to the various election campaigns already being waged, and gain a fair and balanced idea of what is happening, you’d need to watch all of the news channels twenty-four hours a day and read both the serious press and, sadly, the gutter-press too. […]

Philosophy: A Wasted Life

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 25, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

In one of the last interviews the philosopher Richard Dworkin (1913 – 2013) gave, he was asked what is wrong with a person spending their entire life collecting matchboxes. His answer was that such a hobby is not a real challenge, it is trivial, the result is only a collection of matchboxes. He goes on […]

Monday Mornings: Cleaning Up The Weekend

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 24, 2015 in Personal |

If the weekend was hot and sunny in Germany, no matter where you are, you will get to see one thing Monday: stacks of beer crates, filled with empty bottles, being brought back to the shops. To be fair, not just beer, some soft drinks are also hidden in there, but the beer crates take […]

I Can’t Stand The Rain…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 17, 2015 in Internet |

A friend of mine, when she has no more credit on her cell phone, always claims that the Internet is empty. She has seen everything, there is nothing more there, and she is just waiting until the end of the month when new content comes out, much as if she were buying her favorite magazine. […]

A Hard Time Feeling Sorry

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 12, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I look at the prices on the gas pump every single day as I go past, marveling at the constant changes and how, despite a theoretically proven lack of complicity, all the gas stations in a single town or area have the same roughly price. Up to ten times a day, I am told, there […]

The Woes Of Windows (10)

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 11, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Despite the long download and update time – you will recall that I wrote about it a short while ago – Windows 10 seems to be working reasonably well so far. I’ve dumped much of the Start menu entries as being over-the-top and installed the Do Not Spy software to remove all the reporting mechanisms […]

Breaking: Man Expects Baby

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 15, 2015 in Internet |

Apparently, according to People Magazine in the United States, Louis Tomlinson is about to do something no other man has managed to do before – unless you count Adam donating a rib or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film roles – and give birth to a baby. Not only that but he is also the father of this […]

Texas: Fighting A Losing Battle

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 29, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a saying that the battle may be lost (or won) but the war is not over, and it is exactly this fact of life which many people in the United States should take to heart. The Supreme Court may have the final word on same-sex marriage as far as the law goes, but […]

The Darkest Days Of Humanity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to believe that some count the last hours as being the darkest ever. I do not mean in a natural light sense – sunlight, daylight saving time and all that – but in the sense of a set back for the human race, a turnaround in the wrong direction, a return to […]
