Der Aussage „Im Grunde finde ich es richtig, dass sich die Frauen um den Haushalt und die Kinder kümmern und die Männer das Geld verdienen“ stimmen 54% der Österreicher und 51% der Frauen zu.

In den vergangenen sieben Jahren ebenfalls deutlich gestiegen - von 39 auf 50 Prozent - ist die Zustimmung zu der Aussage, dass das männliche Geschlecht beim logischen Denken und in der Technik begabter und daher manche Jobs für das weibliche Geschlecht nicht ausübbar seien.

A father and son are in a car and, as they are crossing some railroad tracks, its engine stalls. An oncoming train smashes into the car. The father is killed instantly; the son lives, barely, and is rushed to a hospital. The doctor enters the room, sees the child splayed on the table. “I cannot operate on this child,” the doctor says; “this child is my son.” How? How can this be?

I recently reminded some friends of this riddle.

“I used to know this one,” a friend said, and then she sat, struggling to remember the riddle’s answer.

“Oh, no,” I said to her. “You see? You see how deeply rooted it is?”

Man könnte meinen, wenn man Ziel eines medialen Hypes ist, würde gehört, was man zu sagen hat. Dem ist nicht so. ... Meine Medienpräsenz besteht zu 80% aus Fotos, Kommentaren über meine Frisur, meine Kleidung, meine Hobbies, meine Art. Hach, wie hübsch und hach, wie erfrischend, heißt es da immer. ... [Ich] fühle mich wie eine Stumme, während alles über mich spricht.

Bah. If the author/publisher wouldn't profit from that, I'd want to use this as a daily notebook for my projects, ideas & sketches.
