Austrian driver's religious headgear strains credulity

Niko Alm first applied for the licence three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for confessional reasons. Mr Alm said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism. Later a police spokesman explained that the licence was issued because Mr Alm's face was fully visible in the photo. "The photo was not approved on religious grounds. He was speaking on Wednesday, after Austrian media had first reported Mr Alm's reason for wearing the pasta strainer. After receiving his application the Austrian authorities had required him to obtain a doctor's certificate that he was "psychologically fit" to drive. Andrei Niculescu.

In Oliver Sacks' The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, there is a chapter called "The Disembodied Woman" (excerpted here).In it we read of Christina, a woman who has lost all sense of proprioception.

design reboot: The Refrigerator Box

She learns to puppeteer her own body; if she is not looking at a limb, she has no internal sense of what it was doing. A nightmare scenario for anyone, but one that sounds oddly familiar to gamers.Proprioception is what we aim to replicate, albeit distantly, when we talk about "body awareness" in games--to look down and see your body is the most basic feedback for a body we cannot sense.I want to use this as a way to look more generally at the sense of immersion, of being embodied in the avatar, and how FPS games are limited in this respect. Before we talk about any design changes or solutions, we need to understand the problems. We'll never be able to capture full proprioception (nor would we likely want to), but that same sense of "being there" is critical to immersion. Arta lui Valery Barykin.

Greuceanu's Saxxy entries. Paleofuture - Paleofuture Blog. Cities of the Dead: 7 Sinister Ossuaries. (Image: Thomas van Ardenne , cc-nc-nd-2.0 ) While overgrown cemeteries are mysterious places, with abandoned chapels and tumbling gravestones providing a perfect habitat for plants and animals, ossuaries present a far more forboding environment. All over the world, chapels and churches hide a dark subterranean secret beneath their stone floors, from family vaults to bone-lined cities of the dead .

But despite their chilling existence, ossuaries provided an economical solution to the problem of overcrowding. In many cases bodies were buried briefly before relocating to an ossuary, where they could be stacked with other remains in a sort of grisly storage system that allowed countless human skeletons to be interred in a single tomb. Ossuaries were used by the Zoroastrians in Persia 3,000 years ago, and have been adopted by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Jewish faiths, in often decorative displays that bring a whole new meaning to the term “bone structure”.
