This Week in balearic sunrises, awkward cat poses and other…

"I woke up naked on the beach in Ibiza in 1988.
But I'm losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent, 
And who're actually really, really nice"  LCDSS

"Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobiography: the most unpleasant celebrity memoir ever."  Total Recall – My Unbelievably True Life Story Jesus, did you read about him fathering a kid with his long term housekeeper that was born just days after his first son with his wife was born?! How do you talk your way out of that one?! 

"Forget drugs. We'd rather be on the internet." Is this the future? It appears to be my future.

"The third largest 'country' in the world." Facebook hits one billion users It appears 1/3 of our futures…

On a more positive note…  "One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak." Gilbert K. Chesterton 

"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." Martin Luther King, Jr.  I generally stick with sarcasm and disdain… but def not hate. Specially not on this Isle. 
"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."  Albert Einstein 

"This is the future of medicine, on a silicon plate. What appear to be lollipops on a tray are in fact magnified micro-robots, only 0.5mm in diameter. As soon as a laser cuts them free, they are ready to carry their cargo into our bodies." Inner Space in reality… now that, I am impressed with!

"A $1bn (£621m) project to build a replica of the Taj Mahal has been unveiled in the Gulf emirate of Dubai." Taj Mahal replica to be built in Dubai.  Seriously?! What is wrong with this world… one not enough? Just needed to offload a billion somewhere.
So beefa has imbued R$N with actual reading material this week… we've read more than two lines on a web-page for the first time in who knows when.

Did you know about the 'proto-Facebook' (doing it a diservice) online community The WELL and its founder Stewart Brand founded 30 years ago? I did not. Go learn.

Oooh, there's some really good stuff on (tries to say this in a massively non-geeky way) Independent technology this week: Google's world wide web wars – locked in a series of increasingly fierce fights with national governments

Scotsman dies, taking town's dialect with him – the last native speaker of the Cromarty dialect. 

I want to watch a good film, can you help?.

25 most awkward cat sleeping postitions including:

Lucky russian not wearing a seatbelt:

"Listening to an interesting documentary on Robert Wyatt right now, a great favorite of J Peel, and the kind of musician that is just not made anymore" : from L.

Ummm…really not sure what's going on here:

I tried to find something interesting and poetic about Ibiza but all I appear to have chanced upon is this little beauty:… sweet jesus lord. Hippies + poetry = very very no!

Right I'm off to get me's a fold away origami boat:

Seriously, foldaway boats… the future mate, the future…

Right, that's me done this week… one day left of Ibizan hippies. Back to the real, physical paper reading material.

Love and boats
