Civic duty

Today the hole digger / grave digger / undertaker or simply in Romanian Groparu (Happy Birthday by the way) showed me a picture made in Germany, with a specific purpose, which is I believe: “come on people, use public transportation, or a green transportation mean… like a bicycle perhaps.” The idea is good, concept is great and realization is probably better at first hand, but I think you will understand what I mean:

A while ago I wrote about Urinelle, a device specially designed for women, to help them pee while standing. Today, reading my RSS feeds I stumbled upon Dragos Novac‘s version of Urinelle. It’s called ‘She Pee‘ and it’s pretty similar to the former. Instructions below.


And yes, it’s about Civic duty also, because It was erected by charity WaterAid to raise awareness about their mission “to overcome poverty by enabling the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education”.

Today’s Joke

Comes all the way from Bistrita via Trollii:

A Chinese walks into a bar in America late one night and he sees Steven Spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushes over to him, and asks for his autograph. Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says:

– “You Chinese people bombed our Pearl Harbour, get outta here.”

The astonished Chinese man replied:

– “It was not the Chinese who bombed your Pearl Harbour, it was the Japanese”.

– “Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you’re all the same!” replied Spielberg. In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says:

– “You sank the Titanic, my forefathers were on that ship.”

Shocked, Spielberg replies:

– “It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me.”

The Chinese replies,

– “Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you’re all the same for me.”
