Art Fairs in 177 Seconds

(HT: href="http://vielmetti.typepad.com/vacuum/2009/07/soft-launch-day-16.html">Edward
Vielmetti) has a youtube time-lapse video at the href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_Arbor_Art_Fairs">Ann Arbor Art
Fairs.  Get the whole thing, compressed into 177 seconds:

allowscriptaccess="always" height="344" width="425">

This probably is the very best way to experience it. 

I still remember going to the first one, at age 6.  It seemed
overwhelming then.  Strangely, the Art Fairs have grown at exactly
the same rate as my capacity to tolerate chaos has increased.  As
a result, the experience has always been the same, no matter how much
older and wiser I have gotten.

    ¿Por qué las personas mueren de hambre en un mundo que produce más alimentos de lo que necesita? En una página web que dijo que era debido a la logística del traslado de la comida. Digo, es más que ver con los beneficios que la falta de la capacidad de mover la comida a donde más se necesita. Además, algunos países del tercer mundo son exportadores de alimentos que necesitan para que puedan conseguir el dinero para otras cosas. Si todos eran aún a medio camino de lo que llamamos humanidad, nadie moriría de hambre. Pero somos humanos y no pueden vivir hasta nuestros ideales bien.

    Nəyə görə ehtiyacı daha çox ərzaq istehsal edən bir dünyada acından ölmək var? Web page bu qida hərəkət maddi-texniki bazası ilə əlaqədar olduğunu bildirib. Hesab edirəm ki, lazım olduğu üçün ərzaq hərəkət etmək qabiliyyətinin olmaması çox mənfəət ilə daha çox, necə deyərlər,. Ayrıca, bəzi üçüncü dünya ölkələri onlar başqa şey üçün pul almaq üçün ehtiyac ərzaq ixrac edirik. Bütün biz bəşəriyyətin diyoruz hətta yarım yolu olsaydı, heç kəs starve olardı. Amma biz insanlar və yaxşı ideya upto yaşayır bilmir.

    Was just reading about riots in London and other areas on the BBC web site. They should use rubber bullets, CS gas and pepper spray till the rioters are incapacitated. Then ship them to Afghanistan so they can learn how to behave.

    Riots noch einmal reißen durch mehrere Städte von England. Viele Menschen werden wiederum für ihren Arbeitsplatz noch heute, um es zerstört oder noch schlimmer, vernichtet. Wie viele werden ihre Arbeitsplätze verlieren ihre Arbeitsstelle zerstört wurde? Bringen Sie in der Armee und eine nicht hält im Umgang mit den Aufständischen ausgeschlossen. Sie wollen andere durch das Werfen Ziegel und andere Dinge zu verletzen, so sollte die gleiche Gewalt zurück haben sie an.

    İngiltərə bir neçə şəhər vasitəsilə bir daha tear iğtişaşların. Bir çox qəzaya və ya pis məhv tapmaq üçün bu gün iş yeri üçün olur. Iş yeri məhv edilmişdir öz işlərini itirmək gedir necə daha çox? Hərbi gətirin və rioters münasibətdə barred A keçirilib var. Onlar atma kərpic və digər şeylər ilə BAŞQALARINA ZİYAN istəyirəm, onlar geri eyni zorakılıq olmalıdır.

    Minun viimeinen viikko työtä hallituksen järjestelmää. Takaisin työttömyys jonoon ensi viikolla. Järjestelmä oli vain kolmetoista viikkoa ja joka päättyy neljässä päivässä. Ikävystyminen ja tuskin tarpeeksi rahaa elämiseen. :( .

    Employers, employees and manufactures of equipment or supplies are responsible in some way for health and safety.

    An elderly couple were having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table, took his wife’s hand in his and said , “Clara, soon we
    will be married 50 years and there’s something I have to know. In all of these 50 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?”
    Clara replied, “Well, Paul, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I’ve been unfaithful to you three times during these 50 years, but always for a good reason.”
    Paul was obviously hurt by his wife’s confession, but said, “I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by ‘good reasons?”
    Clara said, “The first time was shortly after we were married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn’t pay the mortgage. Do you remember that one evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?”
    Paul recalled the visit to the banker and said, “I can forgive you for that. You saved our home, but what about the second time?”
    Clara asked, “And do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn’t have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge.”
    “I recall that,” said Paul. “And you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that. Now tell me about the third time.”
    “All right,” Clara said. “So do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club, and you needed 73 more votes?”

    The hooligan ripped apart the gutter and threw it of the roof at the passer by, he was creating some mayhem and damage. Nobody could get him off the roof untill a little kid came along with a catapult. He fired a stone at him and on his first attempt he caught him in the head, the hooligan fell on to the roof and then on to the ground. He then got mobbed by an angry crowd down below. Its funny but he never wants to be a hooligan again.
