I wrote the aforementioned, in order to relate them with the reason of the existence of this blog.
This blog is all about posting and sharing all the “weird”, “interesting”, “funny”, “attention worthy”, “fancy” things that I am interested in or have a passion about. Hence, you can see from a funny picture to the disagreement of the countries of the EU about fiscal policy.
Before taking hasty conclusions, taking into consideration the following excerpt “Homo Economicus, refuse to prefer only “useful” things but on the other hand one can smoke, lose money on gambling, read poetry, watch porno, drink whisky according to puritan Irving Fisher. The Things and Actions that can satisfy one, do not mean that are necessarily “useful” for one’s being. (G.Varoufakis, Game Theory, The ambition of Integrating Social Sciences, 2007)
