Fired for non-smoking

The owner of a small German computer company has fired three non-smoking workers because they were threatening to disturb the peace after they requested a smoke-free environment.

Found those along with a couple others yesterday early in the morning behind a Kaisers. Had to kill some time until a friend woke up and decided to check out the backside of it (all).

All pictures from yesterday are here.

Tracks in the snow


I think we rarely get snow in Berlin. Most of the time it’s very cold and then wet, or somewhere in between those but without the snow. It just barely stays around, but we are good with ice though. :-) This snow melted away within a few hours later that day.

This is a picture I took on January 1st of this year (2008).
Apparently I wasn’t the first to leave the house to leave some marks in 2008.

That’s what I call a campaign

Metro Ad

I’d just like to take a moment and applaud who ever at BVG is responsible for this ad campaign because it cuts right through the crap and gets to the stuff people care about. In Los Angeles our transit system is largely crap. Well, it’s not really crap, but the people who run it are, which often makes the system itself suck. But they have campaigns that are like “save a dollar or two by riding the train” or “some other dumb ass unpersuasive slogan.” I don’t read German, but I can only assume this campaign is suggesting that if you ride the trams hot German girls will wish they were making out with you which convinced me the moment I saw it. Of course I’m a dude, maybe it’s directed at the ladies and tells them that there are hot guys on the tram they will want to make out with. Either way, that’s one hell of a selling point as far as I’m concerned. Nice work.
