Beyond Snark

Bremsklötze niederwalzen!

The Merkel Roller unleashed. (Hand drawn and then vectorized) Angela Merkel (now German chancellor) on how to deal with obstacles to growth (Kiel, Germany, 2005-06-12): Where there are road blocks, "we'll have to roll them down." (Wo es Bremsklötze gebe, "da müssen wir sie niederwalzen.") For that ambitious goal she surely needs powerful equipment. See also (in German): - -

Crows are Artists too!

A B&W reproduction of my photo you find on page 211 in Josef H. Reichholf's book " Rabenschwarze Intelligenz: Was wir von Krähen lernen können " (Crow black intelligence: What we can learn from crows), March 2011 I took this photo of a crow's nest fallen down from a tree in 2002 in a suburb of Tokyo (Higashi-Yukigaya). Nearby was a dry clean where the bird probably found ample supply of exiting avantgarde construction elements. But I do not know, whether a storm brought the nest down or whether the bird only was experimenting not too successfully with futuristic designs for courtship.
