Today's post was inspired by an event that occurred this Tuesday night in Mar Mikhael, Beirut. I was calmly waiting for the valet parking to bring my car back and suddenly a woman stopped in front of me and asked me a question. I listened hard and heard the words "Pop Eclipse". We all know … Continue reading How The Whisper Game Can Help You.
Today I want to write about hubris. It seems the sin of hubris can lead to misery and desolation. And your excuse will be always the same: you had a problem focusing. Which could mean you were obsessed and mad about the dimensions of our universe. Let me remind a simple number to understand our … Continue reading Are You Afraid Of Defying The Gods?
The word is out: Israel behaves like Nazi Germany. Constantly looking for vital space and treating its neighbours like they're garbage. Maybe Lebanon could give the salt and pepper to Israel? I'm French and Lebanese and I also speak English fluently. That makes me comfortable in most situations except maybe if a Sikh Indian tries … Continue reading Why Israel Needs To Stop Its Nazi Ways.
Now I must be honest: there are many prophets that appeared since Antiquity. And I'm not talking about the Roman and Greek pantheon. Why do we have to have only one God? My heroes are Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Dire Straits, Deep Purple, Robben Ford, Wes Montgomery, and George Benson. My favorite singers are Bill … Continue reading Will The Real Prophet Please Stand Up?
The song Misirlou that Quentin Tarantino made famous reminds us that a diaspora can be a real window on the world. That must be why a country like France decided that its population should have a quota of strangers. And I'm part of that machiavelic plan since I'm Lebanese and was accepted in France. Needless … Continue reading What Does It Mean To Be A Quota?
I know blogging is a conversation or maybe about problem solving. But there's something about love and space that makes me weak. I remember this movie called "Intolerable Cruelty": you're exposed! Now we know why we still haven't colonised several other planets: something there makes us weak. But let's remember the Phoenicians who explored the … Continue reading How Can I Bore You Today?
Yesterday I learned that Jesus was not the last prophet but the penultimate one. That's why I'm not Jesus and will try to be the last prophet that will send mankind in space as if you went out of your house to have coffee. I never wanted to be Jesus but it seems I already … Continue reading Who Will Be The Last Prophet?
It seems giving advice is the brand awareness of successful people. And I must say I gave advice to some people in the past. But lately I was wondering if a bad advice wasn't a good advice. Take for example my boss during my 1 year stand in an investment bank in Paris (2010). One … Continue reading How To Take Good Advice From Everyone.
This post was inspired by a strange thought I had a while ago and supported by this song from Yngwie Malmsteen called "I Don't Know". Apathy is an idea. When I think of apathy and how the right words are "I don't know a thing", I try to remember my engineering school. I was downloading … Continue reading Why Don’t You Know A Thing?
A serious music insight by Queen's song "Don't Stop Me Now" makes me wonder if to get out of the Milky Way, man will have to learn dematerialization. I thought that living 1000 years in good shape would help us conquer the Milky Way since we can travel at 10% the speed of light. … Continue reading Travels At The Speed Of Light
