  1. Trivia bits

    Yes, exactly. But I forgot about the chopsticks…
  2. Trivia bits

    The name of the last president of the US would have qualified perfectly well, don't you think?
  3. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Sure. But wouldn't it be cool if a male mayor then send his female vice mayor for these duties… Take that, NSK!
  4. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    I wish I had this childhood scar from a fight with… errr… perhaps Kitonoumi at my age. Much better story than to say that I just fell off the bicycle… o_O

    soccer vs. football Well, actually for historical correctness the sport should be called by its original ancient greek term ἀποπουδοβαλία.

  7. Winter Olympics 2018

    Curling is a bit like Snooker on ice. I like both.^^ My moments so far: - The first Pan-Korean Ladies Ice Hockey goal ever - The guy from Tonga for not beeing the last in his competition - 2 shared gold medals in the bob sleigh I think in a sports world full of doping an corruption such stories from the 'second' row weigh much more than ever…
  8. Urban animals

    I live in the city centre of Berlin. From my writing desk I usually can watch some magpies, also doves, common starlings and some species of black crows. Some time ago when I enjoyed a warm summer evening outside only a few houses away a hedgehog passed by. An animal I didn't expect in the centre of such a big city. In a park close by I once saw a common kestrel. At a friends place not far away there's a squirrel family living (this fluffy european red squirrel, not the big grey ones that konquered England from the States). Once one of them came into the house over the balcony and tried to steal a ball of wool. It failed because one end was stuck at the basket. In the morning we could see a long thread of wool going through the living room, over the balcony and along some trees. At her place you sometimes can also see and hear a Great spotted woodpecker. A beatiful bird I think. < Who has never seen a fox up close? > Never or ever? I saw one a few years ago at very unexpected place. It was on the Museumsinsel right in the heart of the city centre. It was on the lawn which was there at the spot where the Palast der Republik stood and where they now build the Humboldt Forum museum. It just passed by a few meters away in a warm summer evening. The fox seemed to be completly unimpressed by all the people arround. Wild boars are said to be frequent in the outer city districts, but I've never seen any of them myself. If you look close enough there is quite a lot of wildlife here in Berlin…

    Gagamaru is always on an Ozeki run.
  10. Translation frustration

    Thanks for this entertainig insight of our dayly struggles on your side.^^ If my Minister of Finance knew that Greece still holds money to fund a cultural event, he would probably flatten the theatre with his wheelchair… *SCNR*

    Is that tomorrows video forecast?
  12. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Do we really need an icon or smiley for 'that f*** hurts by just watching at!'? I personally don't feel any pleasure for lookig at broken limbs or bleading eyes… Perhaps I'm too sympathetic… A basho, where 'half' of the sekitori is already in hospital and we still cheer for a bleeding eye… #WackyAki
  13. The other one is Ikioi, right?
