USS JFK Docking In Malta

???

NOW THAT’S BIG!

USS JFK Docking in Malta – IMPRESSIVE!

Have you ever considered how big a U.S. carrier really is?

This shot gives a good relationship of its size to something else, like buildings, cars etc.

Link: Homeward Bound – a Tribute to our Troops

A friend sent me the link to this Flash presentation in 2004, and I put it on Posterous a year ago.  This seems like an appropriate time to see it again.

What is Globalization?

What is Globalization?

Question:
What is the truest definition of Globalization?
Answer:
Princess Diana’s death.

Question:
How come?

Answer:

An English princess
with an Egyptian boyfriend
crashes in a French tunnel,
riding in a German car
with a Dutch engine,
driven by a Belgian
who was drunk on Scottish whisky (check the bottle before you change the spelling),
followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,
on Japanese motorcycles,
treated by an American doctor,
using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by a Canadian,
using American Bill Gates’ technology,
and you’re probably reading this on your computer that uses Taiwanese chips,
and a Korean monitor,
assembled by Bangladeshi workers
in a Singapore plant,
transported by Indian truck drivers,
hijacked by Indonesians,
unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,
and trucked to you by Mexicans….

That, my friends,
is Globalization!

The world’s greatest writer

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.  When asked to define ‘great’ he said, “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry and howl with pain and anger!”

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.
