Can you see the STOP sign in this picture?

If you can, the only reason you can is because I am parked on the side of the road to take the picture. If I was driving, it would have been behind the green rubbish bin and therefore not visible at all.

Now look at the right side of the picture. Can you spot where the STOP sign came from?

A great idea whoever thought of it, since most of the traffic which reaches here just spills to the left without stopping.

10 points for common sense, 0 points for execution.

On the quality of online news sites in Cyprus.

July 18th, 2012 1 comment

On numerous international news sites today, you will find something along the lines of:

A vast island of ice has broken off a glacier in Greenland: but it is just one-fifth the size of one which snapped off from Canada in 1962 and half the size of one seen in 2010.

The new monster iceberg is assessed as covering 46 square miles by professor Andreas Muenchow of the University of Delaware, which he calculates as roughly twice the size of Manhattan island.

In local media, such as on Sigma Live’s website, you’ll find:

Παγόβουνο λίγο μικρότερο σε έκταση από την Ελλάδα αποκολλήθηκε από τον Παγετώνα Πέτερμαν, έναν από τους μεγαλύτερους της Γροιλανδίας.

For the non Greek speakers amonst us, this implies that Greece is a little larger than 46 square miles.

What are these people thinking when they write these articles? I should start my own online newspaper… a valid one!

Although I was driving when this was taken, I didn’t take this photo! 🙂

Antonis Taxi

Taken with a Canon Exilim EX-1200

Antonis is a multilingual taxi driver, spotted on the Lemesos to Pafos highway. Unfortunately, even after he has FINISHed listing the languages he speaks, he must be a pretty useless taxi driver if he doesn’t speak Greek!

Humour aside, as he more than likely does speak Greek, hats off to him.

Grandmothers of crime to appear in court, two of them “escape”.

March 1st, 2012 No comments

The whole hype in the media here in Cyprus (and abroad) today, is about 42 grandmothers aged between 72 and 99 years old who are to appear in court on March 10 to account for playing cards to pass their time. I cannot make this funnier than how has put it, but here is an extract of it:

Unfortunately for the prosecution two of the 44 “grandmothers of crime” escaped “justice” by uncooperatively dying from natural causes.
