Monochrome Monday


Metamorphosis Kafka-esque a



This morning, as I was waking up
from sweet dreams,
I discovered that in my bed
I had been changed into a tiny insect
and now was sitting on my glasses
reading Kafka's Verwandlung:


One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up
from anxious dreams, he discovered
that in his bed he had been changed
into a monstrous verminous bug.
He lay on his armour-hard back and saw,
as he lifted his head up a little,
his brown, arched abdomen divided up
into rigid bow-like sections.
From this height the blanket, just about ready
to slide off c
ompletely, could hardly stay in place.
His numerous legs, pitifully thin in comparison
to the rest of his circumference,
flickered helplessly before his eyes.
“What’s happened to me,” he thought.
It was no dream.

Aristotle's Wisdom*

Recently, CherryPie as her Thought of the Week posted what is said to be a quote of Aristotle (384-322 BCE), i.e Happiness depends upon ourselves, and all commenters seemed to be delighted.

Which is why I  wrote: 
"Happiness depends upon yourself", laughed the rapist, and setting fire he added, "and upon your connection with your maker, ha ha ha ..."

Does everyone think, the victim of such a bastard would consider Aristotle a wise man?

Discuss, if there is anything to discuss.


* The title could also have been ... Aristotle's Wisdom and Kant's Advice or Have courage to use your own reason.

Not monochrome

Sometimes colours make it easier
to interpret sky's mood, hm?

Swarming stupidity

Typing swarm intelligence after 0,13 seconds I got told there are 1,570.000 entries.


Afterwards, I hesitated to type swarm idiocy.

The peace of the night.

Flying Dead Flies

There have so far about 1.000 human disease genes been found.
77 % of those have been found in drosophila melanogaster, too.
Following the 'logic' of 'intelligently designed primates'
humans are 77% fly.
... And now let us not start speaking about bicycles.

Laughing Lhursday

Not only his Princess,
Venus, Jupiter and the Moon
too send a smile
to the both noble and valiant Squire
.
