Thought for the day…..” Knowledge talks, wisdom listens”
” When one door closes, another one opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully at the closed door, that we do not see the ones that will open for us’ (Alexandra Graham Bell).
More on stupid people. Saw a story in news about a man in Wisconsin, USA who was arrested when he demanded a refund from a Walmart shop on a computer printer that he claimed he had bought instore. A shop worker examined the printer, and noticed fake USD 100 bills which the man had been trying to print, still inside the printer. And if you are bored, then you can pay a visit to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, which has an exhibition entitled ‘my beautiful chair’ where you can lie down next to a lethal injection chair and experience the countdown (all 3 minutes and 15 seconds of it) until ‘death’ arrives. The time corresponds to the time that the lethal injection drugs take to work. Stupid.
Captured by the camera in a Moroccan market, this woman has the traditional dyed hands. Henna (a plant) powder is mixed with water to produce a paste which is then painted onto the hands, often in intricate patterns. Henna is also used as a hair conditioner and a hair dye. It is believed by the local people that henna will protect against illness, as well as offering protection against the evil eye, and that it will bring joy. Most major festivals in Morocco involve the use of Henna. Around 32 million people live in Morocco, with the main languages being Arabic, Berber and French.
