Ok, I wake up this morning and found me looking at label on my.. [ah.. lazy me..] soluble coffee.
I've thought "Ah! dirty bastards! another sick joint-venture.. _now_.. Netscape & Nestle.. orrible world."
That was me seeing "Netscafe".
Tell me that I'm not alone.
Something similar.. in the morning.. at least..

Wasn't there a story about Nestlé intending to buy Google or Microsoft?

Considering my knowledge about the general incompleteness of websites in English I did a search for Godel. And lo: Not only did Google find Gödel under that name. They also found him both under the correct spelling and under another misspelling: Goedel.

Surely "Gödel" and "Goedel" are the same?

> Surely "Gödel" and "Goedel" are the same?

That may be a matter of definition. In Denmark we have lots of names that are pronounced exactly the same but are spelled differently. Some people with such names take pride in the correct spellings of their names:

I remember one young football player who at one of his very first confrontations with a bunch of sports journalists said: "BTW my name is Povlsen, with a v." He did not want to have his name confused with the more common Poulsen.

And in some cases different spellings may actually distinguish between two different families with very different origins: Vedel is a bourgeois family whose family name originally was created from the name of my own home town while Wedel is a noble family immigrated from Germany.

That's too funny. I'm afraid there's no hope for you. ;)

That line would work over the opening bars of a C Min blues.

Tell me I'm not alone

I've seen something worst. When I warn my brother that he should get up, each morning I get a different answer. Here I put the ones I best remember:

Me: Mikel, It's 7:30
He: No, paint it in blue

Me: Good morning
He: Good nigth (that's the most habitual)

Me: Will you go to institute today?
He: Will the aliens invade us? There are questions that will never be answered.

After some tries, each morning I was able to make him get up. And then comes the breakfast. I don't speak too much about the lot of times I have found the cacao in the freezer and the milk in the closet, or the ones he has put the fruit juice in the microwave. The best part comes when he prepared his bag to go to class: Some books, a set of guitar strings, some CDs, magazines, and once even a teddy bear!. But it was not a problem: most of times he forgot the bag at home.

I'm different: I work well at the morning but never after sunset. I use to listen goblin armies comming to were I am and so on. <snip>
So don't worry about Netscafe. There is people around there that are worse than you.

Greetings,
Herenvardö

PS:Shht! I've listened an orc ;)
