Superman and the Yellow Bicycle (Flensburg Nautics 2012)

Last weekend we had the Flensburg Nautics in town and some of the local BMX guys did a show called the “Fördejump” (fjord jump) in which one basically drives one’s bicycle off of a ramp, does some amazing stunts in the air, and then plunges into the fjord. And apparently Superman is a local, too. Who knew?

(I shall now be on the lookout for a student named Clark :-))

As of 45 minutes ago, one can now officially (and I can now call myself) a doctor of philosophy.
To get one’s passport changed, or to not get one’s passport changed?

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Sib.

Things Dearly Loved and Seldom Mentioned IV

(If this is going to be a regular feature, it really needs a catchier [and shorter] name). Also, more poetry today – this time from the author of The Red Badge of Courage. An Episode of the American Civil War.


A Man Said to the Universe
Stephen Crane

A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
“A sense of obligation.”

Dans la Ruine de Château de Vieux-Windstein

En Alsace

The path from the last picture leads to, as it were, la Ruine de Château de Vieux-Windstein – the ruins of the old Windstein Castle – and is located in the Alsace region of France, where this photo here was also taken (namely, in the small village of Reichshoffen).

If you want to see more photos of Vieux-Windstein or the Alsace in general, I’ve added some to my “La France” photo album (newly created, photos from France were previously all bunched into “Other Places, Other Views.” (I also photographed some plants and animals while in France, but those photos went into the respective “Plants” and “Animals” albums [ :-) ])).

What path might wait behind this gate?

The Federsee is a moorland lake in Upper Swabia and in large parts – as you can see – overgrown by reeds.
