Laying sneaking in – a mythomaniac next to me (FUN)

Posted on March 26, 2008. Filed under: Life |

OK – here is a story about a former colleague at one of my companies (not saying which one), let’s call him Bob.

One day Bob called in to inform his manager that he would not be coming to work that morning for personal reasons. Now, normally this would be a perfectly reasonable excuse and would lead to no further enquiries. Bob, however, was already known as the interstate call-in-sick champion with an impressive record as the least reliable employee with the most “sick” days. By far! Hence, a bit of prompting was called for:

Manager: What is the nature of your personal problem this time, Bob?

Bob: a close relative passed away and I have to go to the funeral

Manager: Again? … I’m sorry but I find that hard to believe. With the risk of sounding insensitive to your plight, please show me a copy of the obituary or some other form of documentation. I just really need to be sure that you’re not screwing us this time, Bob.

Bob: …………ahhhh……ahem …. Well, you see … it is not a family member… but rather a friend of mine who passed away. …. In a violent car accident… and I was also there with him in the car when it happened….

Manager: Ohhh – that’s terrible, Bob…That is just horrible – you must be devastated…… But, Bob, you do realize that the police keeps a record of all people involved in fatal accidents, right? And so, all I have to do is to call the police and get them to confirm that they took down your social security number as part of the routine investigation..

Bob.: ooohhh, weeeellll, then they would not find my name….. You see …..I was actually not in the car after all.. But I was in another car – and it was my fault that my friend had an accident.. you see,….. we were racing … and it’s was all my fault.

Manager: Wow – that’s really heavy, Bob. Why didn’t you just say so in the first place? Perhaps you can send me a copy of any newspaper clippings or a copy of the standard police rapport documenting the fatal incident – and then we’ll talk no more of this.

Bob: Okay……. Well, actually there never was any accident. The truth is that I am gay and that my boyfriend just died of AIDS. OK?

Manager: Bob …. please try to swing by the office. There is something we need to talk about.

Growing up – No Formula

Posted on March 25, 2008. Filed under: Life |


When i look at my little girl – soon turning into a little woman – I get a bit worried – where is the time flying? And how do I tell her in a nice and smart way that the grown ups and the adults have no big book with the formula? I still suffer from the idea that I need to find that book/list….

My 4th Child Is Born

Posted on March 6, 2008. Filed under: kids, Life |


Last night my wife gave birth to our 4th child – a wonderful baby boy. Its better then any other experience in the world – and I feel happy from top to toe. We haven’t decided on a name yet – but I’m pretty sure we have to leave the L name concept (Lisa, Laura, Linus) – since we cant find a name starting with L. Suggestions are wellcome…

Ugly Warning

Posted on March 3, 2008. Filed under: Life |


After taking over the newspaper – a lot of people have called/emailed me to ask for favors – with deals they want to get done with the paper. Im really sorry to have to state to you dear valued readers and friends – that ITS A BAD APPROACH. I love to help – in any way shape or form – but its impossible to put anyone ahead of each other in business 😉 So please dont ask me to help your cousin the become a journalist or your friends friend to deliver the launch 😉 – but feel free to shoot ideas and concepts like ALWAYS.

Hoe pe I dont sound to angry ass 😉

Posted on February 12, 2008. Filed under: Life |


Yesterday I was at this Cinama For Peace – Film, Charity, Lets Change The World because we celebrate the small movies and have international superstars (Kasparov, Swank… the ful shabang) – but I felt very strange. Invited by my German friend Christian (impressive 29y ld with hs own giant investment bank and 2-3bio in funds under mamagement) – I went to Berlin with excitement and open mind. And he intentions where fantastic – 1000 people in supernice tux and dresses – but it felt like fresh orange juice where the fruit pieces are made of plastic… Weird.

How Schools Should Teach

Posted on January 29, 2008. Filed under: Life |

I  looove this movie and this guy (enthusiasm beats all glossy production tricks!!!) – wow. I learn so much – Wii learn – its just amasing – to see how technology evolve with lightspeed just because everyone has a global voice. Also it makes me think about how Youtube (or whatever video community) can become the ultimate teachers inspiration. Remember how happy you where when your teacher in elementary school showed up with a video…
