14. IRO World Championship - Samobor, Croatia

The 14.IRO SAR Dog World Championship begins on 30th of June and lasts until 06th of July 2008.The Town Of Samobor is a co organizer of this competition that will be held in Croatia for the first time.
One of the best things to do in Samobor is sample the fine dining. You simply must try Rudorska greblica, a special cheesecake prepared according to an age-old recipe. Another sweet treat is Samoborske kremsnite, cake of custard and flaky pastry. Traditional meals are also scrumtious in Samobor; Try Pri Staroj Vuri near the main square which also sometimes hosts poetry readings. Try Samobor's famous aperitif, Bermet before your meal.

With all those calories, you'll want to expend some energy. No problem. Samobor sits in the middle of the Samoborsko Gorje, a mountaintainous region that offers a wealth of hikes through rolling hills, lush pastures and dense forests.

His and Hers Diaries

Saturday night I thought he was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment.
Conversation wasn't flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent. I asked him what was wrong he said nothing. I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not to worry.
On the way home I told him that I loved him, he simply smiled and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior; I don't know why he didn't say I love you too.
When we got home I felt as if had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there and watched T.V. he seemed distant and absent.
Finally I decided to go to bed, about 10 minutes later he came to bed and to my surprise he responded to my caress and we made love, but I still felt that he was distracted and his thoughts where somewhere else. I decided that I could not take it anymore so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep. I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep. I don't know what to do, I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

Today the Lakers lost, but at least I got laid."

At A Traffic Signal

Some time after their bitter divorce, a man happened to pull up alongside his ex-wife at a traffic signal. He shouted over, "So... out looking for a little, huh ?" She smiled sweetly and said,

"No, I had 6 years of that with you. I'm out looking for a lot !!!"

Did You Know...


How To Be Lazy

"1. Never do anything. If you wait around long enough, someone else will do it.
2. Don't move. Moving is overrated.
3. Never run. Running is the worst thing you can do. I had to run once.. big mistake.
4. If something is not in your reach, you don't need it. Before you get up to get something across the room next time, think. Do you really want to get up and walk all the way there and all the way back to get it? Yeah, I know. I felt stupid for moving all those times.
5. Don't have an opinion. Opinions are thoughts, and thoughts are work.
6. Don't work. Working is for suckers. Be a CEO if you can, they never do anything.
7. If you have to move, fuss about it. Make it well known that you're pissed off because you have to move. Sigh a lot. Drag your feet and arch your back at 60 degrees (bad posture helps you to conform to the shapes of couches when you sit down, and it makes you look tired).
8. Sleep as much as you can. Contrary to common sense and popular belief, sleeping is very productive.
9. Don't talk. Talking requires the movement of your jaw.. way too much work.
10. If you have to work, do a half-assed job at it. Example: If you have to rake leaves, push them out into the road or into your neighbor's yard. If you have a riding lawn mower, run over them a few times until the pieces are small enough to hide in between blades of grass."

Sister Margaret

"Sister Margaret died and through some error found herself in hell.
She immediately called Saint Peter and said,

'This is Sister Margaret. There's been a terrible mistake!'

She explained the situation, and Saint Peter said he'd get right on
it. The next day the nun didn't hear from Saint Peter so she called him
again. 'Please set this error straight before tomorrow,' she begged.

'There's an orgy planned for tonight, and everyone *must* attend!'

'Of course, Sister,' he said. 'I'll get you out of there right away.'

Apparently, her plight slipped his mind, and the following morning
Saint Peter received another phone call from hell. He picked up
the receiver with tribulations of his heart and started to listen.

He heard the following, 'Hey, Pete, this is Maggie. Never mind!'"

Imagine Freedom

"Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish?
Nothing else."

" Love is so simple"

Selfportrait with a dog

by Croatian painter Miroslav Kraljević

The Poodles of Winston Churchill

"Winston Churchill is often identified with the English Bulldog, maybe because he tended to be stubborn and tenacious.
Or, not to be insulting to either man or beast, but maybe it was because he looked like an Bulldog.
Actually, he never had a Bulldog. He was a Poodle owner, two brown miniature Poodles, both called Rufus. They were treated like members of his family.
The Poodle ate in the dining room with the rest of the [Churchill] family. A cloth was laid for him on the Persian carpet beside the head of the household, and no one else ate until the butler had served Rufus's meal.
One evening at Chequers the film was Oliver Twist. Rufus, as usual, had the best seat in the house, on his master's lap. At the point when Bill Sikes was about to drown his dog to put the police off his track, Churchill covered Rufus's eyes with his hand. He said, 'Don't look now, dear. I'll tell you about it afterwards.'"

I Like The Way You're Thinking

"The Teacher tells the class they are going to play a game,
she will describe an object and the students will tell her
what she had described.

Teacher: 'The first object is Red, Round, and has a stem.'
Timmy: ' I know what it is, it's an apple.'
Teacher: 'That's right, I like the way you're thinking.'
'OK the next item is round, has a peel, and you eat it.'
Christopher: 'I know what it is, it's an orange.'
Teacher: 'That's right, I like the way you're thinking.'
Johnny: 'Can I try, Teacher?'
Teacher: 'Yes Johnny, but, Keep it clean!'
Johnny sticks his hands in his pockets and feels around for a
second, and says 'My object is round, hard, and has a head on it.'
Teacher: 'Alright Johnny, go to the office!'
Johnny: 'No Teacher, it's a quarter, but, I like the way you're thinking!'"

Dog Made Adorably Bionic With Model Airplane Wheels

"This tiny puppy, named Hope, was born without front legs. You know what that means: it was time to create a robopuppy. Orthotist David Turnbill created a custom support for Hope using a couple of model airplane wheels, and each one of the 'legs' can move up and down independently, allowing Hope to pivot and turn. If you were to say this is the most adorable thing ever, you might just be right."

'WALL-E' has a sneaky Oscars edge: He's a little android tramp

"'Wall-E' probably needs no help to win next year's Oscar for best animated feature, but the adorable robot just got a nice boost. The New York Daily News reports that, although he's an android made of metals and plastic, Wall-E is based upon a real person. Two people, actually.
Writer-director Andrew Stanton confessed that Wall-E is based upon Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton."

Black Holes Have Simple Feeding Habits

At the center of spiral galaxy M81 is a supermassive black hole about 70 million times more massive than our sun.

A new study using data from Chandra and ground-based telescopes, combined with detailed theoretical models, shows that the supermassive black hole in M81 feeds just like stellar mass black holes, with masses of only about ten times that of the sun. This discovery supports Einstein's relativity theory that states black holes of all sizes have similar properties."

If You're Not That Handsome


mea culpa

The Best Audience


Ask Calvin's Dad

Calvin's dad answering questions, quoted from various Calvin and Hobbes books by Bill Watterson.

Q. Why does the sun set?
A. It's because hot air rises. The sun's hot in the middle of the day, so it rises high in the sky. In the evening then, it cools down and sets.
Q. Why does it go from east to west?
A. Solar wind.

Q. Why does the sky turn red as the sun sets?
A. That's all the oxygen in the atmosphere catching fire.
Q. Where does the sun go when it sets?
A. The sun sets in the west. In Arizona actually, near Flagstaff. That's why the rocks there are so red.
Q. Don't the people get burned up?
A. No, the sun goes out as it sets. That's why it's dark at night.
Q. Doesn't the sun crush the whole state as it lands?
A. Ha ha, of course not. Hold a quarter up. See, the sun's just about the same size.
Q. I thought I read that the sun was really big.
A. You can't believe everything you read, I'm afraid.
Q. How come old photographs are always black and white? Didn't they have color film back then?
A. Sure they did. In fact, those old photographs are in color. It's just that the world was black and white then. The world didn't turn color until sometime in the 1930s, and it was pretty grainy color for a while, too.
Q. But then why are old paintings in color?! If the world was black and white, wouldn't artists have painted it that way?
A. Not necessarily. A lot of great artists were insane.
Q. But... But how could they have painted in color anyway? Wouldn't their paints have been shades of gray back then?
A. Of course, but they turned colors like everything else did in the '30s.
Q. So why didn't old black and white photos turn color too?
A. Because they were color pictures of black and white, remember?

Q. Dad, will you explain the theory of relativity to me? I don't understand why time goes slower at great speed.
A. It's because you keep changing time zones. See, if you fly to California, you gain three hours on a five-hour flight, right? So if you go at the speed of light, you gain more time, because it doesn't take as long to get there. Of course, the theory of relativity only works if you're going west.

Q. Why do my eyes shut when I sneeze?
A. If your lids weren't closed, the force of the explosion would blow your eyeballs out and stretch the optic nerve, so your eyes would flop around and you'd have to point them with your hands to see anything.

Q. How do bank machines work?
A. Well, let's say you want 25 dollars. You punch in the amount and behind the machine there's a guy with a printing press who makes the money and sticks it out this slot.
Q. Sort of like the guy who lives up in our garage and opens the door?
A. Exactly.

Q. What causes the wind?
A. Trees sneezing.

Q. Why does ice float?
A. Because it's cold. Ice wants to get warm, so it goes to the top of liquids to be nearer to the sun.
Q. Is that true?
A. Look it up and find out.
Q. I should just look up stuff in the first place.

Q. How come you know so much?
A. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.

Cheeta Will Not Get Star on Walk of Fame

It is an especially interesting fact that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Walk of Fame Committee has for the seventh time refused to give a star to the legendary chimpanzee Cheeta that became famous in “Tarzan” and “Dr. Doolittle”. Cheeta’s managers have started an on-line petition in a bid to convince the committee to give a star to the chimpanzee.

George Carlin - It's Bad for Ya - 2008

Comedian George Carlin Dies In Los Angeles At 71

"Comedian George Carlin, a counter-culture hero famed for his routines about drugs and dirty words, died of heart failure at a Los Angeles-area hospital on Sunday, a spokesman said. He was 71.
Carlin, who had a history of heart and drug-dependency problems, died at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica about 6 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. EDT/0100 GMT) after being admitted earlier in the afternoon for chest pains, spokesman Jeff Abraham told Reuters.
Known for his edgy, provocative material, Carlin achieved status as an anti-Establishment icon in the 1970s with stand-up bits full of drug references and a routine called 'Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television.' A regulatory battle over a radio broadcast of the routine ultimately reached the U.S. Supreme Court.
In the 1978 case, Federal Communications Commission vs. Pacifica Foundation, the top U.S. court ruled that the words cited in Carlin's routine were indecent, and that the government's broadcast regulator could ban them from being aired at times when children might be listening.
Carlin's comedic sensibility often came back to a central theme: humanity is doomed.
'I don't have any beliefs or allegiances. I don't believe in this country, I don't believe in religion, or a god, and I don't believe in all these man-made institutional ideas,' he told Reuters in a 2001 interview.
Carlin, who wrote several books and performed in many television comedy specials, is survived by his wife Sally Wade, and daughter Kelly Carlin McCall"
