Somali man marries girl 95 years his junior 

 A 112-year-old Somali man has married a 17-year-old girl, BBC reported on Thursday.
The wedding took place in the village of Guriceel in central Somalia, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Ahmed Muhamed Dore already has 18 children from five wives. He said he would like to have more children with his new teenage wife, Safia Abdulleh, who is young enough to be his great-great-granddaughter.
"Today God helped me realize my dream," Dore said after the wedding ceremony in the region of Galguduud.
"I didn't force her, but used my experience to convince her of my love; and then we agreed to marry," Dore continued, adding that he had waited for his wife to grow up first before proposing to her.
Safia's family said their daughter is "happy with her new husband," a man who survived Italian colonization, British occupation, Siad Barre dictatorship and Somalia's dissolution.
Somali historians say that the …

The heck out of a machine _____________________________________________________

Tonight I can see heaven, with nothing to hide the views, so amazingly After all these moments when the sky was clouded with dull colours only The distinct show, shows me the tedious life so distinctly.
I long for a life that is filled with stars To stand out from the crowd, to have an identity and to excel For these things accentuates the purpose of existence Add more meaning to this life, shackled by routine things.
I can see the views so clear, yet the road seems so far The ways are under a magnification glass of a mechanised life It pains me to spend the days in recluse For I'm alone in the crowd - no mundane thing can uplift me.
Yet I could hear the sound from inside my body It is screaming - I feel the intensity It is ironic how the cry of the distant place, seems so real.�

The intentional birth of an anarchist

The ABC of the Revolutionary Anarchist

Probuzdeniye No. 18, Jan. 1932, pp. 57-63 and no 19-20, Feb.-March 1932, pp. 16-20.

Anarchism means man living free and working constructively. It means the destruction of everything that is directed against man's natural, healthy aspirations.
Anarchism is not exclusively a theoretical teaching emanating from programs artificially conceived with an eye to the regulation of life: it is a teaching derived from life across all its wholesome manifestations, skipping over all artificial criteria.
The social and political visage of anarchism is a free, anti-authoritarian society, one that enshrines freedom, equality and solidarity between all its members.
In anarchism, Right means the responsibility of the individual, the sort of responsibility that brings with it an authentic guarantee of freedom and social justice for each and for all, in all places and at all times. It is out of this that communism springs.
Anarchism is naturall…

Get rid of the rut

Private Investigations VI
The Working of a Mechanical Being __________________________________________

It was in a management tutorial, I remember that I read about the CAT-aspirants, saying they don't want a typical 9-to-5 job. It was for their dislike in such tedious job that they want to pursue courses in IIMs and other A-graded, B-schools. But somehow, there are plenty of jobs, including those in management, which are quite monotonous. It's time we put some fun into our job.
Every day, we are programmed to create error-free products by following several pre-planned processes. It was exciting in the beginning but repitition, and the same kind of job day in and day out, have mechanised our thought process. It will be plain generalisation if we simply state the facts or how we do our job.
We can search for means that would allow us to regain interest in anything we do. Do a similar work in different style -- strive to be creative while grounded on the floor, but don't go over…
