Oh, I missed the Copenhagen Carnival, which was this weekend. It has been happening for 25 years. You know, a Brazilian samba kind of thing. In the beginning it was more like a real carnival, all over the city for three days. Nowadays it is mainly in a big park, and with one big parade through town. Pictures here.

... I have to admit!  

7 Jun 2006 @ 07:39 by enora : Humph!
Where are the photos of the nearly naked men? Wearing thongs, close-ups of their asses or their fronts?  

7 Jun 2006 @ 17:33 by ming : Naked men
Well, I couldn't find any. Not that I looked very hard. ;-)  

7 Jun 2006 @ 17:57 by enora : LOL
I am not surprised, Ming. But sometimes the straight ladies at NCN wanna see something good, too.  

7 Jun 2006 @ 19:12 by Ge Zi @ : call to action
Then - - why don't we call all the men of NCN to action and submit to flemming all their best (nearly naked) pictures and flemming then puts up a site newciv, version x?  

7 Jun 2006 @ 19:55 by enora : Hey
that is a good idea, Gunter! ;-) Let's see how many men join in hahaha (I'll bet it will be zero).  

8 Jun 2006 @ 17:20 by ming : Men
Eh, that's, uhm, a good idea. I'm sure that will be very popular. Remember to wear feathers and thongs made of beads.  

9 Jun 2006 @ 02:38 by Ge Zi @ : I'll take your bet
Hi muse,

OK, this is a little bit ago, but we all try to show our best side, don't we?

CindyIMHOThe way I see it, this election isn't so much about the President, as it sulohd be about replacing ALL INCUMBENTS in the Senate and the House. These are the people who are really destroying our country. They are incapable of passing any laws (that are good for the country), and entirely too many are getting rich at the expense of the American Public. More than a few of these people, especially those who have been in office for more than a few years (regardless of which party they affiliate with), can be assumed to be taking money, gifts and other favors from the lobbyists. Jack Abrams went to prison, but it takes two to tango, and in the case of lobbyists and the governing bodies, there is an awful lot of tangoing going on, and it is Not to the benefit of the American Public.Big business and large corporations are now running Our Country. Their sole purpose to make as much profit in as short a period of time as possible, regardless of the consequences or long term viability. Can you imagine if the BILLIONS that they are pouring into this election were used to actually CREATE JOBS?? What if the BILLIONS were paid to reduce our debt, or in taxes to fund our schools, roads, hospitals? Imagine that.The Elite, Big Business and the Republicans are adamant that they retain their insane tax breaks. They claim to be the “job creators”. However, in the time they have received the greatest tax benefits in history, they have created the fewest jobs in history. They have taken that money and moved it and the jobs overseas, to third world countries where they don't have to pay a living wage (or taxes), and can therefore make even bigger profits. What jobs have remained here, they have systematically sought to demote by paying less, eliminating benefits and breaking any sort of union or negotiating power the employees may have in place. Further, they now seek to tell those of us who have lost our jobs and subsequently our homes, that somehow we are to blame for the state of the economy. That we, the ones who have been laid off; that it is our fault that we can't find the jobs that aren't being created by the Rich and Powerful who have enjoyed the tremendous tax breaks for so long. That unemployment benefits, which is a fraction of our lost wages, is somehow a handout that prevents us from seeking the gainful employment we lost because of downsizing (corporate greed). What jobs are being offered are far below the prevailing wage for the same job ten years ago. Yet, somehow, it is my fault that the economy isn't recovering – or, it's President Obama's fault. Really?The economy isn't recovering, because the 1% who have enjoyed the biggest tax breaks in the history of our Country, and many of whom reaped the benefits of the bail outs that the taxpayers' paid for, haven't created any jobs! Without jobs, decent paying jobs, there is little chance of a recovery of any substance any time in the near future. If the “job creators” who have created no jobs, continue to receive their tax breaks, there is little chance of this Country ever getting out of the red.Those who are entrenched in power; they are the ones who need to be replaced. I believe they are the moving force behind the plethora of laws that come out of government every day. They seek to control and regulate us more and more, through the guise of “our protection”; yet they can't solve the budget issues, stop the war machine, or control and regulate those who so obviously need controlling and regulating (Wallstreet, Banks, Insurance Companies). Greed is a powerful master, and those who have reaped the most in government, are those in the House and Senate who have made a career of catering to the lobbyists instead of their constituencies. They are not there for Public Service, they are there to get as rich as the Elite masters they serve. Time to clean house. Time to put people in the working part of government who actually care about the future of our Country – those who are committed to educating our future leaders; those who are committed to ending the wars we have become involved in without sufficient justification; those who are committed to the long term health and well-being of our Country and our planet – for the benefit of our future. Those who would seek Public Service not as a way to become wealthy, but as a way to give back to our Country, and maintain the principles of We the People, not we the corporations/wealthy/elite.

You actually make it seem so easy with your ptoaenrstien but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
