Dr. Faustus

I find a great website on which one can see both the original and modernized text of Christopher Marlowe's The Tragicall History of D. Faustus. It's a great opportunity for both who are interested in theater and the evolution of the English language.
I was comparing the text with the Persian translation and found out that the Persian text is somewhat a "free translation" of the text. It does not correspond to the "original"—if there is such a thing—line by line.

One might date this very same woman three time in a week without niticing that she's the same woman.

Best water?! or worst water installations?

  • "One in ten large water installations in Denmark has caused an outbreak of the so-called legionnaire's disease." DR

And what is this wonderful disease? The dictionary says: "Legionnaire's disease (lē'jenârz') , infectious, sometimes fatal, disease characterized by high fever, dry cough, lung congestion, and subsequent..." Read more.

However for "a country with no armed militias, relatively low violent crime rates and no terrorist attacks for many years." This water installation is a great threat. I guess some FOREIGNERS have installed the pipes!

Dress code

It is understandable that "many schools are banning bare stomachs." DR Just look at the girls that are growing so fucking fat. Those stomachs must be covered for the sake of fucking aesthetics!

Businss Plan

Entrepreneurship: "if I had a huge dick I would establish a one-man company."

Pere Lachaise

Wanna take a walk in Per Lachese? Hit this!
Judges said the [Eminem's] lyrics would not be taken literally by a "reasonable listener".
When judges rap, of course Arnold should govern California!
"The lyrics are stories no-one would take as fact/They're an exaggeration of a childish act," circuit judge Deborah Servitto said at the time." BBC
"...I know not
Which way to look. All near at hand is turned
Aside to evil; and upon my head
There falls a doom far worse than I can bear."

-Sophocles, Antigone

We are the world, we are American

  • "The UN needs US leadership to get it back on track, and that it should focus more on human rights violations and international terrorism."BBC

In other words it should become "ours" or on the other hand "It is no secret to anyone that the United Nations cannot survive," says Condoleezza Rice.

Samaritan law

I did not know there was a "Samaritan law, which requires that citizens help others who are in mortal danger." "The penalty for failing to help another person had otherwise recently been increased from three months to two years in prison. The increased was seen as a sign from lawmakers to the judiciary that that type of case should be treated seriously."
That is indeed super cool, ain't it? Thou oughth giveth fuck about thy human citizens!

It's odd

  • "Danish regulations not at odds with international conventions" DR "The Supreme Court stated that the Danish authorities' practice in three family reunification cases was not in breach of articles 8 and 14 of the European Human Rights Convention."

Its funny that they rule upon an unjust law in the court based on individual cases. I those cases might no right have been violated, but that doesn't say anything with i.e. age discremination in the immigration laws that is against human right. The fact is that the law itself should be examined as to figure out whether it violates the Human Right or not.

Check this out too. The Social Democrats are so pro-equality that they can't stay the suffer refugees undergo. Therefore "The Social Democrats want the same residence permit rules to apply to immigrants and refugees." DR The Copenhagen Post puts it thus.

too tolerant & politically correct

Can one tell what this means? "There are some things that should not be tolerated even if it is not politically correct to say so." DR Also on Copenhagen Post.

Hash Club

  • "Today Copenhagen police have issued a ban on a notorious hash club in Copenhagen, by placing an announcement in a city newspaper forbidding people to go there." DR

Many thanks to the police. I did not know such a place exited. So we can go there now!

Historian and physician Kirsten Lylloff figured out "the greatest contemporary humanitarian catastrophe in Denmark" as she reveals that "German children who fled unaccompanied to Denmark as World War II drew to a close in the spring of 1945 were subjected to inhumane treatment." DR
Amm... "the greatest contemporary humanitarian catastrophe in Denmark?"
Dear Kirsten, you aint seen nothing yet. Just have a look at the refugee camp, Sandholm and you'll rewrite your thesis.
If you are so reach that you don't pay taxes, then just threaten to move to "lower-cost countries" if anyone asked why you don't pay taxes. If you don't know how you can do that, just learn it from the Danish Shipowners' Association.

I did not know that there were "Saudi Arabian women" in Saudi Arabia. Women? Islam is in danger brothers!!!

What does D stand for?

"A new information campaign urges older Danes and Muslim refugees and immigrants to take a daily supplement of Vitamin D." DR
What does D stand for in Vitamin D? Danishness, dignity or delusion? “Are you getting enough Vitamin D?”

Secrecy is an important factor in the affairs taking place in the military intelligence agency. That's why Danish military intelligence agency has posted a job ad on the news papers to employ spies and now many have applied. DR
That is democracy and transparency, so to speak. There is actually this discussion that whether we should already begin to put some ad on the papers in order to hire the next queen.


Walt Whitman would definitely be sitting next to Michael Jackson in the court if this picture was found while he was alive. After all we are living in a world where even Harry Potter is suspected to be gay!

Yöu're dead if you're deaf

  • "According to tradition, when a pope's body is discovered, his baptismal name is called out three times. If there is no response he is judged to be dead." BBC. (in Persian)
According to that tradition Pope was dead many years ago. Because he must had lacked sense of hearing due to his age and it could have happened that he was called three times and no answer would come? Does that mean he was dead? Are all the deaf people also dead?

Popacy and Theater

I did not know that the late Pope John Paul II was about to become our colleague when he was young till BBC revealed that "He also had a great love for the theatre and, at one time, seriously considered becoming an actor."
Seems to me that the chance to be selected as Pope and entering Vatican is much easier than geting to a theater school!
