the volcano in iceland and its effects on airtraffic made me think of this gentleman:

...he is from vulcan, after all and did a lot of travelling through the skies.....

so i thought surely he would have something to say on all this volcano business...

logically, he does:

Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Any conclusions? spock: Only the beginning of a theory, captain. It is possible this cloud in which we are entrapped is a living thing. The cloud is alive.

Captain James T. Kirk
: Was that a threat? Mirror Spock: I do not threaten, captain. I merely state facts.

Fascinating is a word I use for the unexpected. "Interesting" shall suffice here.

Captain James T. Kirk: Spock, what did you... perceive? Mr. Spock: The wonders of the universe, captain. Incredible. Completely incredible.

Doctor, you insist on applying human standards to nonhuman cultures. I remind you that humans are only a tiny minority in this galaxy.

: I am in control of my emotions! Control of my emo - [starts sobbing]

Peter Kirk
: There's no such thing as a Vulcan death grip... is there? Mr. Spock: We are not allowed to tell.

so they passed a legislation last september in germany, saying all traffic signs dating from before 1992 had to be taken down and be replaced by new ones.
thank god somebody eventually noticed that this would be nothing but a waste of money.
so the bill got cancelled and we will continue seeing some of these on german streets.

(the first picture is a scan of yesterday´s tagesspiegel´s first page.
on the right are the 1992 versions, on the left older ones that were going to get replaced.)

don´t you just love that smiling car?

and then there is a sign from sweden i found here
i guess it says playing children...
anybody know anything else about this?
because i really like it...

p.s.: i do not own the rights to any of these pictures. if you see something that is yours and you want it taken down, please don´t hesitate to contact me!

p.p.s.: here

now i could either shell out a lot of money for these wonderful clothes.
or i could finally learn how to crotchet.
i´m afraid none of this is likely to happen anytime soon.
