Germany: The Day Of Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Anyone can claim that Americans are strange, and be perfectly correct, but should remember that everyone in foreign countries is strange, according to their own traditions and customs. Wherever we travel, we find the curious and startling simply because things are different, and we’re not used to that. Settled in our ways, some believe everyone […]

Guns And Nipples: The American Way Of Life

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2016 in News & Opinion |

I don’t know when I first gave up on north American society and its values, but it was probably about the same time as I discovered that Europe is not the Old World with Old World Values some politicians have claimed it to be. And now I look back at the values of the north […]

Cellphone Users: You’re Missing The World

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you seen those people who believe that they are so important they must be reachable at all times of the day and night? You know the ones: they have a gadget permanently stuck in their ear; they sit in art galleries looking into the laps; they hold up traffic on the freeway; they walk […]

Spam: Fooling Around With Reality

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 3, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

We have been warned. It’s fair to say that the warnings have been almost continuous throughout the history of the Internet, and probably even longer. Scams, fraud, things that are almost too good to be true, bridges for sale, lotteries we didn’t enter and still won, millions of dollars hidden in bank accounts in Nigeria. […]

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 […]
