Prague 2018: Pranks [part08]

These people have a weird humour. Here some examples. First thing, to put pinapple over a pizza.

Graphic rules. They want to dictate what you can or cannot do. In details.

This was in a cemetery. Is it useful to remind that inside is prohibited to inject drugs or to skate? And absolutely forbidden to destroy vegetation or tombs? However beware to transport suitcases inside a cemetery because it is normal that there are thieves ready to steal them.

How have fun during a universal exposition: deformed looking glasses. From their show in 1891 they saved this room and a small Eiffel tower replica.

How to put fun and realism inside your dioramas: wreckages, car crashes, animals at the large, death.

To end, how to use a window to start a war: 1618.


San Giovanni underground

Rome lacks of undergrounds. We waited for this stop too many years. At the last! San Giovanni underground stop is now the best station in Rome. There is a small museum on the walls with materials recuperated during the diggings. Moreover on the walls are signed the soil levels of the area. You can go from actual era to primitive times, a voyage in history inside the trip to your destination. All roads lead to Rome.



Snow in Rome is always an event. And it is fun to remember this at the end of Summer. It was the 26th of February. I went to work and I found the gates closed down. At 7.30 in the morning. Under snowfall. After a couple of hours someone brought the keys. Only a few were with me but however people presented to our counters. Some people is crazy.

Here some photos of my city like under an enchantment.

Winter is coming.


Ferragosto time

And even this year we are in the zenith of Summer. A pause about our little soldiers, to speak about bikinis. Do you prefer military uniforms or these two strips of cloth? Impossible to answer.

Who are these beautiful girls? They are Stellar, a popular Korean pop group. Don’t hear the music but enjoy the video.


And now they are 47

One more year! On the way for half a century. But I feel (almost) so young. However, let’s celebrate!


Captain Hydra

How to ruin your comic book author career: take an icon and write an outrageous plot twist. Please, execute this idiot by a firing squad for high treason of national values and culture.


One year of work after

I bought a new house for my miniatures. It was at the end of February 2015. Just one year ago. You can go to these past posts to know more about the original house state,
and the start of demolition and reconstruction works

Now we are arrived at the end of the refurbishment works. Not an easy thing. Delays, delays and delays. And delays, delays and delays again. Some wrongs, some intuitions, some problems, some solutions. It was only a 40mq house (and 9mq balcony). But sometimes I think that it was a palace.

Now I need furnishings to complete the work. But now I’m money empty, so I don’t know when I will buy a bed and other vital stuff, like a new panoramic monitor for my computer…

I hope to live here before the Summer. And my miniatures too.


Another UE great idea

In the meantime. The global government wants to terrorise us in every manner. It finances terrorists as Daesh and wants to destroy Russia that wants only the right to live. After the prohibition to fly with bottles of water or nail-clippings, now it wants to ban legal gun ownership. With a series of excuses it claims that even deactivated weapons, as rusted iron pieces of WWII era without firing mechanisms and closed barrels, cannot be in possess of registered collectors. Everything that resemble a semi-automatic weapon must be destroyed. Toys too.

Let’s try to sign this petition on And never trust the global government.

Following the text of the petition:

On the morning of 7th January 2015 Terrorists attacked Charlie Hebdo, with fully automatic, unregistered and illegal firearms.

Since then the EU has been preparing new legislation to ban semi-automatic firearms in the hands of law abiding EU citizens. Despite the fact that these weapons were not used by terrorists and are not even typically used by criminals.

They use unregistered, untraceable black market full auto Kalashnikovs.

The new legislation has been on the back burner since April 2015, only to surface now on 18th of November, barely 5 days after a second attack in Paris.

The victims of this tragedy have not been buried yet, the criminals are still on the loose and the police has not even finished the investigation and yet the EU is announcing measures to prevent something like that from happening again.

Unfortunately nothing in the draft would have prevented these 2 attacks since neither were done with weapons that are now legal and would be banned with this new law. Nothing.

It is not logical and above all it is extremely unfair.
It is unfair to the victims, it is unfair to the law abiding citizens whose hobby and property will be taken away.

Say NO to the draft proposal announced on 18 November 2015
Do not restrict semi-automatic firearms ‘because they look like an automatic firearm’

We the Citizens demand that the EU brings focus on the real problems:
– That the external borders of the EU are not protected.
[note: Turkey will enter in Schengen area in October 2016!!!]
– Our population has groups in it that refuse to align with our democratic core values and our culture.
– Illegal arms trade is rampant within the EU.
– Criminals and terrorists have easier access to illegal weapons than legal gun owners have access to legal arms.

That is the current situation and this new legislation does NOTHING to address those problems.
The 18 November IP-15-6110 draft to amend 91/477/EEC is not only populist in nature, it is also an insult to our civil liberties and to the intelligence of the EU citizens as a whole.
