Polish Google autocomplete for European countries
The syntax of the language makes this map a little bit different to the ones I have recently seen, in Polish you’d ask a question in another order, like “Why Poland is (…)?” instead of “Why is Poland (…)?”. I stopped typing after the country name and let google do its job, that’s why instead of just being rich/poor/good, here we have something about importing wood and getting to the play-offs. Apparently Poland is poor either way :(
Sorry to the people of Andora, Malta, Moldova, Bosnia and Slovenia; apparently we don’t google you guys.
It was falling on every part of the dark central plain, on the treeless hills, falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and, farther westward, softly falling into the dark mutinous Shannon waves. It was falling, too, upon every part of the lonely churchyard on the hill where Michael Furey lay buried. It lay thickly drifted on the crooked crosses and headstones, on the spears of the little gate, on the barren thorns. His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.
Excerpt from “The Dead” by James Joyce
In Defense Of Adverbs
I’ve lived too long with pain. I won’t know who I am without it.
—Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game (via larmoyante)
"Mrs. Mary Couchman, a 24-year-old warden of a small Kentish Village, shields three little children, among them her son, as bombs fall during an air attack on October 18, 1940. The three children were playing in the street when the siren suddenly sounded. Bombs began to fall as she ran to them and gathered the three in her arms, protecting them with her body. Complimented on her bravery, she said, ‘Oh, it was nothing. Someone had look after the children.’"
