My Views on Honesty

Every child is told by its parents to tell the truth. Being truthful is actually moral in the human society. I mean, even in the ten commandments it says: You must not lie. So one could say humanity started to tell the truth right from the start, which would mean that lying would turn around this whole society. I was told that lies rip apart friends, destroy families and other bonds. That lies would destroy governments, cause the apocalypse… that lies will send you straight to hell. So let me be honest: Continue reading My Views on Honesty

Best Christmas Market in Graz

If you want your Christmas present to be super high quality and handmade, know the right place for you to go.

The best Christmas market in Graz that I know, is on Färberplatz. Everyone there is selling and buying good quality stuff. Also you can listen to the best live music while eating Nutella pancakes.

This market opens every year around Christmas. It is located in the center of Graz, near the Main Square. There aren´t as many people as at the “Christkindl Markt” on the Main Square, but that isn´t a bad thing. Continue reading Best Christmas Market in Graz

Octopus

 

Doesn´t look like much but have you ever asked yourself what this animal was like when it was alive? I´m going to prove to you how cool octopuses really are:

Octopuses (Octopi or Octopodes) are probably some of the most remarkable animals on earth. It is well known that octopuses have four pairs of arms although they have neither an internal, nor an external skeleton. This means that they have no bones or a shell, which is the reason why they can squeeze themselves through very tight and small places. Still their tentacles break when they are damaged. Another extraordinary thing about them is that they have blue blood and three hearts: two for pumping the blood through each of their two gills, one for pumping blood through the rest of their body. But the structure of their body isn´t the only impressive thing the octopus is offering.

Octopuses are unexpectedly intelligent animals. They can store both, short- and long-term memories. Also you can teach an octopus behaviour but they usually don´t learn from their parents because they wouldn´t live long enough. And although octopuses are colour-blind they can adjust to their surrounding perfectly in a few seconds, just like chameleons. This can be used as a defence mechanism or a tactic to attack their prey. Continue reading Octopus
