On this damn hair...

So the growing process continues... Now my hair is too long for some non-destructive chemical warfare agent to keep them in acceptable pattern... At the same time it's still a tad too short for hairband... So now I just walk around office looking like Zbigniew Wodecki in his prime ;-)

Just a little longer, hang in there, man...

On putting your fingers between the door...

Heh, that's a good one...

Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has put me on the list of their resources available to all Japanese embassies in Central Africa countries as an Aikido teacher. So now I can get a call anytime from any Japanese Embassy and be asked to go and demonstrate...

Never thought my Aikido would become official like that.

On music recommendation

If you are into weird music like Aube or Ellen Fullman or - even a bit into EN then I can recommend Jon Iverson's Alternasia. Good production quality, inspired by Indonesian folk music. Best part? Jon offers free high quality download (FLAC, of course) on his page for free.

On Chinese nuclear weapons program

First read some theory here (Wikipedia link). Then, armed with new (or not so new ;-) knowledge, go to this article.
What is interesting is not only the rare view into Chinese nuclear weapons program but also question of why they allowed for program's disclosure?

On Buddhism

I just finished listening to audiobook History Of Western Philosophy written by Bertrand Russel. It was kinda long...

And I found it very interesting how inferior (at least logically, which can be easily judged) all of these trends are compared to Buddhism. And even philosophers exposed to Buddhism (Schopenhauer, Nietche, Hegel, etc) seem to totally misunderstand it. I know it's not an easy matter, but c'mon, these guys were supposed to be the brightest minds of their time. So where does this problem arise from? Lack of teacher? Lack of practice?
