When we arrived we had some problems with the tram that leads to the main building, but it was quickly fixed by the highly efficient lobby boy. Out of all the common areas the one you should give special attention to is the Turkish bath and the Greek spa. Food was excellent, and on our first day there were regional sweets from the Mendl’s bakery in our bedroom out of courtesy – that was really nice and they tasted delicious. Staff was particularly kind and helfpul. Next season we’ll certainly go back!
Enough horror movies, set in cabins, in isolated forest areas, have been made by now for the rest of us to know the right and wrong things to do when partaking of such getaways ourselves. There’s over a dozen points you need to take into account, and even though there’s no guarantee of survival, at least you’ll know what to expect…
It doesn’t matter how many rooms the cabin has; tonight everyone’s sleeping together. Set up your sleeping bags or whatever in the cabin’s largest room, preferably in a circle allowing you all to face each other and past each other to all entrances to the room. The idea is to be able to see a threat coming from all directions simultaneously, while also keeping your fellow campers in sight.
Ohio based brand strategist Derrick Lin’s camera seems to capture moments the eye misses… I somehow get the feeling that you’d see – were it possible of course – scenes such as these in many workplaces though, not just a digital agency.
“I got back from my trip and my grandmother never existed. I was pretty upset. I went back to their offices and asked how come the split future thing didn’t happen, and who gave birth to my dad, and how was I still alive? They just shrugged and said ‘time is really complicated.’ Then they showed me my waiver again and handed me a pamphlet on the butterfly effect and another on paradoxes. Not amused. Apart from that it was pretty cool, but I think I’d only do it again if they did a Groupon.”
If anyone could put problems right though, surely it would be a time travel company?
Newsflash, the FIFA World Cup is underway. If your country isn’t competing, or perhaps is not the red hot favourite if it is, you may be able to derive a little consolation from The World Cup of Everything Else, that ranks nations according to other criteria.
Most forests? Most water? Most airports? Highest elevation? Most McDonald’s restaurants per capita? Most internet users? Longest life expectancy? Your country is bound to the world cup holder in something…
As a product I always thought Earth was pretty good, but trying to please everyone was always going to be a big task, just ask the person who wrote the design brief for the planet, or more the point, the builder, or forces of the universe, that brought this rock we call home into existence:
Right now we’re only seeing two great lights in the sky… a greater one for day and a lesser one for night? Thinking that maybe we weren’t clear in the original briefing. Definitely need more than just two great lights. Need to make this a memorable, high-value experience for our users. Please revisit slides thirteen and fourteen in the deck. Shout with questions.
I can’t say I have a problem with the first three “Star Wars” films, as in episodes four, five, and six, but who knows, they might have been something else again had Quentin Tarantino helmed them, at least if this imagined trailer for “A New Hope” is anything to go by.
We’ve probably all heard of a place where a seemingly bizarre law exists, something like “it is illegal to play a guitar after sunset on the day of a Blue Moon”, or some such. You’ll probably then never have had the chance to see these transgressions happening, because, you know, such activity is illegal.
New York City based photographer Olivia Locher is changing that though, and possibly putting her neck on the line at the same time, through her photo collection I Fought The Law, where she depicts such misdemeanours taking place.
You do have to wonder why some these of laws were ever enacted in the first instance though.
