My holiday started for about 2 weeks ago! My pation took a turn during the last 2 weeks in school, and my absent eye appeard. There was really no point in spending my time there, we were just watching films, eating unhealthy food and conducting the last couple of tests. The last one rather important, though. Remaining two more years, and then i’m all done with secondary school, can’t wait. Although i’m a bit anxious about my turn afterwards. My first weeks of freedom have been spent both at home and in London, but I won’t be writing a lot about that. But my most memorable experience there(London) was British Museum, a very crowded and massive museum with something suitable for each of those who would like to visit. You have to pick a section you have an interest for, etc. history of Iraq or ancient egypt. We had other plans the day we visited so we didn’t spend the whole day there, but we fell on ancient egypt, not really in my greatest interest, however, I found it interesting to learn more about the mummification, where even cats and cows of the rich people were mummificated! Where intestines was pulled out like the intestines of a fish, and later on they included embalming in their process, so the body would remain just as lifelike as it did in the earliest ancient egypt, where the bodies where buried in the desert exposed to dryness and heat.
I’ve noticed that I very often start my texts with a summary of what I’ve done since last time, or just other random things on my mind absent from my main writing plan. I have no idea why I do so, it doesn’t fit in, just looking weird really. But mostly that is how I come up with my subject, even though it doesn’t look like it. Because London is not my subject, but this time I found it natural to squeeze in, because it is one of the main reasons of my latest absent in addition to my illness which have given me a sore throat, fever and made me feeling sick. Weirdest combination ever, but I guess it’s just coincidences of my luck.
Even though the weather was glorious today I have spent an enjoyable time in front of my TV. The show I watched gave young scientists an opportunity to give a presentation about something in their deepest interest followed by a judge on the quality of their presentation given by a jury. The last one wasn’t any fun though, I mean, i’m able to tell whether I like a presentation or not myself. But the presentation itself was bloody fun! They were all so comitted to their own presentation that even subjects not in my interest was really interesting! For example Audun Hetland who had studied extreme sports gave a speech about base jumping. Never have I understood why people choose to do such extreme sports, when there is a great chance of getting injured or even die. I’d say their filled with overwhelming courage as well as they’re very, very stupid. But after his presentation based on a long term study my negativity is transformed into understanding. The video below show you an extended version of the presentation I saw today, it’s not taken from the same show because I found the extended presentation conducted in english and found it a bit better. So here you go;
I absolutely love the video ending his presentation, it sums up his whole presentation perfect! I mean the base jump of course! “I don’t care if I sound like the biggest retard in the world, that was fucking awsome!” most adoreble and funny thing I’ve ever heard! And I must point out how cool Hetlands results from measuring emotions is, that really captured my eye at least! And the fact that sadness completely disappears during this whole experience is just amazing! You are minutes away from a possible death, and you’re not sad at all! weird! If I ever get depressed I’ll just start with extreme sports then! Not really tempting, although my understanding is present now.
