Hhehhehe this is too funny. I love the face she is making.

@linuxgirl Didn’t figure out this was a comedy until the middle part when I was 18.

Ingredients:

  • Green beans (As many as you like)

  • 1 Potato

  • Cherry Tomatoes (As many as you like)

  • 95g Can of Tuna or Salmon in brine

  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVO)

  • 1 slice of sour dough bread (stale tastes great)

Serves:

1 very hungry human being.

Method:

  1. Cut the potato into small cubes and boil in salt water until tender.

  1. While potatoes are boiling, whisk a tbsp of balsamic vinegar with a tbsp of EVO with salt as desired in a bowl.

  2. Once cubed potatoes are boiled, let it cool for a few minutes.

  3. While potatoes are cooling, boil the green beans until slightly tender for about 5 minutes or however crunchy or soft you prefer. Once done, wash with chilly water or place in ice bath in a bowl for a few minutes to stop the beans from cooking further.

  4. Slice the cherry tomatoes into halves.

  5. Tear up the bread into rough pieces rather than cubes as the roughness creates a rustic variety of texture.

  6. Dunk the potatoes, beans, canned tuna or salmon with brine, tomatoes, and breads in the whisked emulsion of balsamic vinegar and EVO. Salt generously and refrigerate for a cool salad.

  7. Once cooled, drizzle with a tbsp of olive oil and chomp it down!

In this picture I skipped potatoes because I was trying to have a low carb salad. But the potatoes make an enormous difference. A bit of honey in the emulsion also balances out the acidity if you are not a huge fan of tanginess. This salad is nice for a healthy lunch. If you want salad as a side instead for your main proteins, skip the tuna. The salad works great with a simple beef or salmon steak. Enjoy!

“Societies that are, in most respects, hugely more advanced than those of the past have managed to construct urban environments more dispiriting, chaotic and distasteful than anything humanity has ever known.”

This one is absolutely beautiful.

Budapest.

Socrates - a construction manager?

Socrates: We must follow the path toward truth, wherever it takes us.

Thracymacus: Even if it takes us down strange and dangerous roads we would not wish to travel!

Socrates: Much like your project! I surely would rather drink the hemlock, so to speak, than walk through the fires of the process that lies before you. Good fortune with that. A wise man once said: “Our houses are such unwieldy property that we are often imprisoned rather than housed in them.”

Thracymacus: Socrates, sometimes your comments thoroughly throw me for a loop round the pillars of Hercules.

Socrates: I’m sure I don’t know what you mean.

Very sad. I remember reading somewhere, I just can’t recall exactly right now where… a certain hunter gatherer tribe who were on a journey to find new shelter and there was a very elderly lady who was slowing down the journey. Fearing that she will make the whole group vulnerable, the ‘leader’- an able bodied man goes from behind her (and sorry this a bit violent and gory) - he hits her at the back of the neck/spine with a big rock to kill her instantly. And it’s a very acceptable thing to do because they can’t risk themselves becoming predators etc. I guess the injured are also considered weak and vulnerable to the whole group. And no doubt, when people get injured and become disabled, they certainly lose a lot of their social connections in the process. But this injury on the dolphins is of course inflicted by humans, which makes it even more revolting.

Dolphins are among the most social creatures in the animal kingdom, with relationships so complex that they’re often compared to those of primates. But a certain primate—humans—can disrupt dolphin bonds.

According to a new study, a dolphin that’s been injured by a boat or fishing gear faces social consequences—in the most striking cases, the injured dolphin is cut off from some of its closest peers.

I hope all of you got to rest and take a break from the chaos of last year and feel more motivated and hopeful for this new year. Did you guys get up to much for the holidays? Wishing you all a lovely and wonderful year ahead.
