It giet oan: Nederland neemt deel aan de militaire acties in Libië. Vanavond meer (persconferentie Rutte live uitgezonden op Politiek24). Blijkbaar is er overeenstemming over het overdragen van het commando aan de NAVO, en dat was voor Nederland een voorwaarde om deel te nemen.
Payback time voor het jatten van die Lynx-helikopter. He Moammar, doe eens teruggeven!
Stuff like this gets the historian in me very excited. The Guardian has a cool, interactive, quasi-3D timeline about the events in the Arab world ever since the Tunisian Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire on December 20, 2010. Scroll joyfully along everything that happened since then, like on a rollercoaster.
I’m thinking about how to expand this… Moving images, documents, links, connections. And imagine such a thing for other historical events, like the French or Russian revolutions.
Ah, the English press. What news from Great Britain? Well, Mr. and Mrs. Schatynski of Stockport, Gtr. Manchester, have a goldfish that has an uncanny resemblance to a famous German politician.
Fish fans Chris Schatynski, 27, and wife Sarah, 29, placed the little critter in their tank after four-year-old daughter Ellena won him at a fair.
Only then did they see his resemblance to Nazi tyrant Adolf.
Sarah, of Stockport, Gtr Manchester, said: “I was afraid he’d try to take over the tank, but he hasn’t yet.”

To celebrate the 375-year existence of Utrecht University, from March 20 to 26 a laser art project will be visible above the city. It consists of seven beams of colored light that stretch three kilometers, all the way from the university campus outside the city to the medieval, 112 meters high Dom Tower.
Ah, the good old days of playing Mortal Kombat at my friend’s house after school. I was never allowed to play these games at home, but over at my friend’s, I could. The best were always the finishing moves. In this 2-hour (!) long clip, you’ll find each and every finishing move for every Mortal Kombat character ever, in addition to those of a shitload of other old school games that I’ve never even heard about. Nostalgia…

Before WikiLeaks, Julian Assange was a lowlife bum who exploited the hospitality of “friends of friends”. This reenactment is based on an “absolutely true story”:
Well, it’s all for the greater good I guess.
