private thoughts of a physicist and chessplayer
Ilaria is very proud of her new look. Check her out:
Sweeeeet! I envy her!
Cute & interesting that she’s more similar to me than you (click my name).
Interesting Lubos. That’s probably because you are more feminine than I am…
PS by the way sorry for my spam filter, who is a bit primitive I am afraid…
Hmm, what I cute little girl! 🙂
Is she your relative?
Of course Daniel, she’s my daughter.
Maybe the truly main reason is that I was 5 on the picture, closer to Ilaria’s age than the age of the old man on the available photographs of yours. 😉
Nope Lubos, I had a beard at five 😉
Or, as in a cartoon I used to read (Wizard of ID):
“I am an expert digger. I used to dig 12 hours a day when i was five.” “How could your dad have you do such a thing ??” “He was pissed because they had fired me at the coal mine.”
Poor kid (from the joke). I only know a similar joke: “Do you know when a woman can take a rest for dishwashing? When a truck brings coal to the house.”
Or one about the French, U.S., and Czech feminists. The French one says: I told my husband: Starting from tomorrow, you will do dishwashing. I didn’t see anything happening for some time but indeed, he’s been doing it since the following evening.
The U.S. counterpart says: That’s nothing compared to me. I told him: Starting from tomorrow, you will do dishwashing and laundry. I didn’t see anything for a few days, but he started to do it.
The Czech feminist says: That’s nothing compared to us. I told mine: Hubby, starting from tomorrow, you will do dishwashing, laundry, ironing, and shopping. I didn’t see anything for two weeks and now I am finally beginning to see something through my right eye. 🙂
That’s bordering censorship, Lubos…
Wow, that’s funny. This is a standard Czech TV humor. This particular classic one is from Mr Ivan Mládek. You can even find it on Feminists CZ website,
This server has a goal to sweeten it up to men – so that they must also sit at the toilet etc. Whoops, I am so happy to be geometrically away from unfree unhappy sourballs without a sense of humor!
Lubos, who are you trying to fool ? You know very well I am not a unfree unhappy sourball. The problem is that this blog wants to be friendly to those people as well!
Yes, I essentially do know. But the most friendly thing you can do for those readers (and for the rest of the world) is to teach them how to be natural, free, happier, and tolerant.
For some reason, the creases in the hair reminded me of the job I used to do designing integrated circuits. VLSI is supposed to stand for Very Little Sleep Indeed, so it is common to fall asleep at one’s desk. I slept under the desk, but more common was to fall asleep with one’s head on the table. One guy I knew could sleep with his hands at the keyboard so it looked like he was wide awake.
Another engineer told me that he woke up from a nap, went to a meeting, and wondered why everyone was staring at him. It turns out that when you fall asleep on a spiral notebook it leaves a fascinating sequence of parallel lines on your face. Something like this:
Carl, you pervert.
