Although everyone anticipated defeat of centre and left wing candidates, nobody expected such an earthquake and success of so called „anti-system candidates” and so significant drop in the support for the current president.

Recent atrocities in Charlie Hebdo yet again shaked our sense of security and provoked discussions: some call for revisions of our relations with Islam, other – including French president François Hollande – argue, that the attackers had nothing to do with Islam. It is important that while discussing the fanaticism, one does not loose his own rationalism and common sense.

One of the most interesting stories of ancient Egypt had happened in the 14th century BC under the reign of a pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom known as Akhenaten, husband of the famous Queen Nefertiti. Into this time, the world best known Finnish writer Mika Waltari set the story of his the most famous book, a historical novel The Egyptian (1945).

„What now? Are you going to litter the whole neighborhood again with that crap? It is beyond belief how much paper is wasted to fulfill wet dreams of that idiot and this cow of his!” - elderly lady walking the street with her york was obviously not too happy with us blocking the pavement outside local Yes Shop in order to unload new delivery from the printing works.
“Of course that Salmond is an idiot, and I can't stand that Sturgeon lady as well” - answered young boy with pierced face who was wearing a white “Yes” shirt - “but this is the very reason why we should vote “Yes” next week!”

Before we finished with unloading the van, young man managed to lay out his twisted line of reasoning and the old lady seemed to be leaning towards voting for independence.

Even that Alex Salmond, a prime minister of Scotland and leader of Scottish National Party, is an idiot.

  • William Bruce był szkockim duchownym, żołnierzem i dyplomatą oraz profesorem Akademii Zamojskiej. Należy do wielkiej fali szkockich wędrowców-emigrantów, którzy zapełnili Europę w XVI wieku, szukając na kontynencie po części swobód religijnych, po części zarobku.

  • Była to decyzja podjęta w ostatniej chwili. Bawiąc już drugi raz w San Francisco u jednego ze znajomych, zacząłem zastanawiać się, jaki będzie mój kolejny krok. Po dwóch tygodniach w Seattle i Vancouver, gdzie, mimo iż był koniec września, zastała mnie przepiękna pogoda, moje ciało i umysł domagały się jeszcze więcej lata. Przeglądając mapę nagle zaświtał mi pewien pomysł: Hawaje!
