Ihr seid alle arme warme Würstchen! Bitches.

Saw this sticker on a sign one day

Other than it making me laugh, does somebody wanna help me with this?
"You are all poor warm sausages?"

Winter is here

Check out the forecast. Basically now Dresden will look like this for the next 16-20 weeks. No warmer. no colder. none sunnier. It challenges my motivation to ride my bike into work. It's really quite annoying.

Oh, and the days become way too short. Now's the time when I can leave home in darkness and get home in darkness.

For North American readers:
quick, guess what city has an equivalent latitude to Dresden, Germany (About 2 hours south of Berlin):

Washington DC

Answer: none of the above. Go north from NYC to Montreal, then go THAT DISTANCE north AGAIN. And you're in Dresden territory.
The sun sets around 4pm.

Boston is on latitude with central Spain. Paris and London hit up in Canada. weird, huh?
North Carolina meets up with Africa.

Robot Dance

I have to go to Youtube and watch this like once every couple of months. It's just ridiculous.

And here's the same guy a few years later. Maybe he's lost something as he gets older, but this thing were he comes up slowly from falling down is UNREAL. you will have to watch it again.

A dividing human cell. The DNA (blue) is pulled apart by fibers (green) that attach to the chromosomes at a specific place (red)
