OK, I need someone that knows about Chinese culture, because this is pretty weird.
Every time we're around Chinese tourists, they are amazed by our kid's eyes and start taking pictures of him as if he was an attraction or something. See attached picture I just took.
This happened first when he was ~6 months old (he's 22 months old now), and it's happened at least 5 times already.
Is this a normal thing in China? Because it feels pretty darn weird here...
Originally I thought of only making mechanical contraptions for the kid (I want him to learn to interact with the real world before he discovers phones and tablets...)
But the kid loves things that go beep and boop... so I guess I'm gonna have to bring out the big guns!
Plan is to make lots of mechanical elements (buttons, switches, levers, etc), but add some sound and lights when he interacts with them.
Politics, Europe, Spain, Sweden
You know how Opel is called Vauxhall in the UK, but they're exactly the same cars? Well I just realized the same thing happens with political parties in Europe.
In Spain you have PSOE, in Sweden Socialdemokraterna.
In Spain you have Partido Popular, in Sweden Nya Moderaterna.
It's like fucking McDonald's franchises!
As we say in Spain: same dogs, different collars
