Selfies: The Old, The Brave, The Strange

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 29, 2016 in Photography |

They’re not going to disappear, the self-shots or selfies. No matter how much photographers may wish it, no matter how silly, outrageous or narcissistic, society, young and old, is fascinated by images of themselves in all situations. Social history, in the form of a self-portrait caught on the spur of the moment, is being re-written […]

Sweden: Insurmountable Problems

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I can just imagine the poor souls in this photograph, scratching their heads and wondering what to do. It seems like a major problem, on the surface at least. How to get rid of a giant penis someone has managed to scratch – or whatever – on a small lake covered in, as the headline […]

How Do You Spot A Terrorist?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 19, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The title of this post is a serious question: how do you spot a terrorist? How do you know that one particular person is planning a terrorist attack, is a member of a terrorist organization, or has links to terror? How can you differentiate between a person who has what we might term fanatical views […]

Education: Staying Where You Are

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 15, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I had the pleasure of being able to listen to a two-part conversation recently. Two-part in that it did not take place completely on the same day, and pleasure simply because it backed up a few thoughts I have always held about education and the attitude some people have towards their lives and chances. Two […]

Propagating False Information

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There should be a degree course or, at the very least, a diploma in Fact Checking. As we watch the bitter fights and amazing claims surrounding the US Presidential election campaign and see constant refutations of this claimed fact, that possible event, I wonder whether this form of spinning – the art of telling a […]

Petty Revenge: Fear Me

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 10, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Every single one of us, and I can almost guarantee that not a single person in the entire world has ever been freed from this, has a need or a desire at some time for revenge. For most of us it is just a passing feeling, something which we feel at the time, but cannot […]

Women: Why Do We Even Bother?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 9, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Men’s problems are completely different to Women’s problems. That, I think most will agree, is as clear as anything which has ever been written. We, as women, have an outlook on life, on relationships, on happiness, which is nothing like that which men have who, some claim, are more interested in a good, high-profile workplace […]

Oil Prices, Stock Market Falls

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Panic in the City? As with many recent years, the stock market, especially in the USA, has suffered a fall in values. This year it has been considerably more than in previous starts, and many people are worried. Billionaires – and those with lesser means – have lost millions in trading. At the same time […]

Twitter: Tackling Racism With Humor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 7, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

For anyone who believes that the Germans have no sense of humor, I think it is easy enough to prove you wrong. The humor can be slightly different to what we, in the English-speaking world, consider amusing, but it is there none the less. Sometimes harsher and tending more towards the satirical, sometimes blatant and […]

Politically Correct Dating Sites

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 6, 2016 in Internet |

Apparently it is controversial if you advertise a web site offering white people a dating service. At least, for some people it is controversial, for others it is a facepalm “Why didn’t I think of that” moment. Dating should be about the people involved, and not limited to one particular section of the community, no […]
