I'm a (male) sociology teacher at a German university, where I mainly work on everyday life, symbolic interaction, television studies, social control, Goffman, Ethnography.

I'll occasionally post sociology, but I guess I post a lot more Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Community and whatever makes me laugh. And that's potentially anything and everything: If you take life too seriously, it stops being funny. Plus, funny is the only feel I have, so might as well ride it out!

"Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruit looks like a normal tree for most of the year, but in spring it reveals a stunning patchwork of pink, white, red and purple blossoms, which turn into an array of plums, peaches, apricots, nectarines, cherries and almonds during the summer months, all of which are rare and unique varieties. 

Not only is it a beautiful specimen, but it’s also helping to preserve the diversity of the world’s stone fruit. Stone fruits are selected for commercial growing based first and foremost on how long they keep, then how large they grow, then how they look, and lastly how they taste. This means that there are thousands of stone fruit varieties in the world, but only a very select few are considered commercially viable, even if they aren’t the best tasting, or most nutritious ones. 

Van Aken has grown 16 Trees of 40 Fruit so far, and they’ve been planted in museums, community centres, and private art collections around the US. He now plans to grow a small orchard of these trees in a city setting.”

well, it should include friends and your urban family, really, but other than that it’s perfect!

Are you guys ready to go “Into the Bunker” on August 4th?

Anyone else notice that those ‘runes’ on the blocks are the Behenian Fixed stars (some aren’t exact, but are close)? As in, the same/similar to the ones on the rim of the portal underneath the Shack?
