Frano Selak, “el hombre con más suerte del mundo”, regala todo su dinero para ser feliz Frano es un viejo profesor de música croata, llamado “el hombre más afortunado del mundo” después de que lograra escapar a la muerte en no menos de siete ocasiones y ganar casi 700.000 euros a la lotería hace 5 años. Frano dice que ahora es más feliz…después de regalar toda su dinero a familiares y amigos. “¡Ser su cuñado debe ser una suerte!”, pensarán algunos; pero nada comparado a la flor con la que ha nacido en su trasero este croata jubilado. Superen ésto, sin repetir medio de locomoción (sólo él puede permitírselo): - En 1962, un tren en el que viajaba a Sarajevo descarriló y se precipitó a un río helado. - Un año más tarde, Selak volaba de Zagreb a Rijeka cuando una puerta del avión se abrió y fue absorbido hacia el exterior. - En 1970 iba conduciendo cuando su coche empezó a arder. - En 1995 fue atropellado por un autobús en Zagreb, pero sólo tuvo heridas superficiales. - En 1996, mientras conducía por una carretera de montaña, un camión invadió su carril. ¿Y tú?

mental_floss Blog & Talking Pictures: Love and Marriage Talking Pictures is a spankin'-new column in which, every week or so, I'll post an array of fascinating found snapshots that have writing on them, all arranged around a particular theme. I discovered them either in swap meets or flea markets or in the vast collections of snapshot-obsessed friends -- most of whom had never bothered to turn their photos over to check whether anything interesting was written on the backs. For me, words are what make old photos come to life. This week it's all about love. Let's begin with flirting, which hasn't changed nearly as much, judging from the photo above, as the clothes people wear to picnics. The long, trailing question-mark says it all, I think: One finds a lot of mash notes when combing through old photos. Little Billy is ready for takeoff -- and love. To my weakness from Bob Love Always Just remember Angel. To be viewed from a distance. Below -- you can imagine how my jaw dropped when I found this one. The inevitable outcome: Love is patient.

Last week we talked about the many survival uses of the tampon. But unless he specifically packed one in a bag or car, a man’s unlikely to have one on him in a pinch. So today we’re going to explore the survival uses of an everyday item you’re much more likely to have with you in an emergency: your cell phone. Ever leave home without your cell phone? Whether in a boat, on a plane, traveling through Africa, taking a road trip, or backpacking the Rockies, our cell phone has become a regular piece of Every Day Carry (EDC). Survival Signal Mirror Each of the cell phones I cracked open had metallic, mirror-like layers of material behind the screens. Aiming an improvised signal mirror requires a little finesse. Navigation Most speakers (if not all of them) contain a magnet. Sweep the magnet across the metal wire in the SAME direction 10 or so times. Spear Points & Cutting Tools Each cell phone also had a circuit board. And Then He Made Fire

SCHOPENHAUER'S 38 STRATAGEMS, OR 38 WAYS TO WIN AN ARGUMENT Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860), was a brilliant German philosopher. These 38 Stratagems are excerpts from "The Art of Controversy", first translated into English and published in 1896. Carry your opponent's proposition beyond its natural limits; exaggerate it. The more general your opponent's statement becomes, the more objections you can find against it. The more restricted and narrow his or her propositions remain, the easier they are to defend by him or her. Use different meanings of your opponent's words to refute his or her argument.

Simple Alchemy What is Alchemy? The dictionary defines it as : a medieval chemical science and speculative philosophy aiming to achieve the transmutation of the base metals into gold, the discovery of a universal cure for disease, and the discovery of a means of indefinitely prolonging life. While this is true, I think of it as a blend of spirituality, philosophy and science. Science states that through matter life was created, in Alchemy, it was life that created matter. everything was created from one source of matter. Some believe that Alchemy is a psychological aspect in life. Alchemy has three aspects as I’ve said before, Mercury, Sulfur and Salt.
