New LJ Drama

*headdesk*

so if you do not agree to the new TOS, you can not see see your entries (the friends only), you can not post (or crosspost) and you can not delete it?

Oh come on

I don't know what I will do.

I  don't  want to delete LJ, I have it since 2003, this is long time.

Anyway, in other news:

Less then 2 weeks and I off to MagicCon, I'm really excited to see my friends again. Of course until then, I have tons of stuff to do and Easter is in between.

For once we have easter off, that is Friday, Sunday and Monday. I work on Saturday, but that's ok, I will not loose a vacation day, which I really need, since I barely have enough for the MagicCon and FedCon in June.

TV Stuff:


Last weekend I bing watched almost all (two eps left) of 13 reasons why. Really hard to watch sometimes, but good really good,

I also deleted some shows, I was seasons behind. The Walking Dead being one of them.

But I forced myself to finish The Vampire Diaries, I think I was two seasons behind and pretty much lost all interest, but I thought since Ian Somerhalder is coming to MagicCon, I'd finish it, so I'd know what the hell he is talking about.

I liked the finale, which was kinda surprising.

Still enjoy The Originals, too bad it looks like it's the last season.

Elections 2009

Dear Politicians,

Yes there are elections coming up. Yes you are desperate to stay in the Parliament with all the money.

Please note, those of you who keep annoying me with Messages on my cellphone, with calls at home, with stupid flyer at my work place - will for sure NOT get my vote.

No love,
Me

You scored as Lilly Kane. You were once the most popular girl in school, but now you are six feet under. You come back in random blue-tinted flashbacks and scare the bejezzus out of a lot of people when you do.

The Chernobyl nightmare revisited

The world's worst nuclear accident, at Chernobyl in April 1986, was all the more alarming for taking place under a veil of secrecy, behind the Iron Curtain.

One of four reactors at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, 70 miles (110km) north of Kiev, exploded at 0123 local time on Saturday 26 April.

The radioactive fallout was detected in Sweden the following Monday morning, but all day the Soviet authorities refused to admit anything out of the ordinary had occurred.

Only at 9pm, after Swedish diplomats gave notice they were about to file an official alert with the International Atomic Energy Authority, did Moscow finally issue a terse, five-sentence statement:

"An accident has occurred at Chernobyl nuclear power station. One of the atomic reactors has been damaged. Measures are being taken to eliminate the consequences of the accident. Aid is being given to the victims. A government commission has been set up."

The word "damaged" hardly reflected the truth of a reactor in meltdown, open to the sky, its graphite sections burning at 2,500C, sending a column of radionuclides thousands of feet into the atmosphere.

Few believed the reassuring Soviet reports which followed, and the fear that gripped many in the path of the fallout plume, was partly the fear of the unknown.

 

More indepth features about the disaster on April 26 1986 can be found here and here in German.


 

That picture sums up pretty much everything what I remember from those days "Oh my God it's raining" - FEAR. I was 11 living in Vienna back then - The streets emptied when it rained, in school we weren't allowed to play outside,  for a very long time my parents only bought milk powder from the United States, hell we din't eat anythink that came from the local agriculture.

Let's hope something like that never happens again!

That's way I don't go to Demonstrations in Athens

Clashes in Athens as Rice visits
TV grab of police and protesters clashing in Athens
TV pictures showed the air thick with teargas
Athens police have fired teargas during a clash with anti-war demonstrators protesting against a visit by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Some protesters hurled petrol bombs, sticks and stones in return.

Ms Rice is meeting Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis as part of a five-day trip to Europe that also includes Turkey and Bulgaria.

Thousands of protesters are said to have gathered in Athens. Some 5,000 riot police have been deployed.

Television pictures showed protesters throwing petrol bombs and using sticks as riot police advanced, the air thick with tear gas.

The protesters were trying to reach the buildings where Condoleezza Rice is meeting Mr Karamanlis and her Greek counterpart, Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyianni, but many retreated under the police pressure, reports said.

Self-styled anarchists trailing the demonstrators continued fighting police, burning cars and smashing shop fronts, Reuters news agency reported, but there were no reports of injuries or arrests.

Police helicopters circled the city centre.

Everything.
Everyone.
Everywhere.
Ends.


Last night I watched the Final Episode of 'Six Feet Under', it's really hard to put in words what I felt watching - but one thing is for sure - there will never be another show that will affect me as much as did this one.
