“For Zuckermann, diversity is beautiful. This is no abstract aesthetic principle, but a premise of his life’s work. His ninth-floor office at the Unversity of Adelaide’s North Terrace campus is a small shrine to diversity. Its walls are papered with printouts of his favourite words: mamihlapinatapai, “a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other will offer something that they both desire but are unwilling to suggest or offer themselves”, from Tierra del Fuego’s Yaghan language; nakhur, “a camel who will only give milk if you tickle her nostrils”, from Persian; and tingo, “to take all the objects from your neighbour’s house, one by one, by asking to borrow them, until there is nothing left”, from Rapa Nui’s Pascuense language. The depletion of the world’s languages strikes him as an aesthetic catastrophe.” Anna Goldsworthy

“It’s easy to dismiss Steven Seagal as being entirely full of shit. At various points in his life he has reportedly claimed to have helped the CIA while living in Japan, to be a reincarnated 17th century Buddhist monk, to have secretly worked as a police officer during the entirety of his movie career and to be a champion marksman. There are also claims that major auction houses call on him to authenticate samurai swords, as he is one of the world’s foremost experts. He has variously said he is of Italian, Russian and even Mongolian descent (he’s actually half Irish and half Jewish, with grandparents hailing from Russia) and is also an avowed Buddhist who has given public lectures on compassion, despite being a huge fan of guns and a staunch proponent of efforts to secure U.S. borders against illegal immigrants.” Playboy

I love a song that invokes religious imagery to describe good sex.

I like this one.

“Cordons, common in the medieval era of the Black Death, have not been seen since the border between Poland and Russia was closed in 1918 to stop typhus from spreading west. They have the potential to become brutal and inhumane. Centuries ago, in their most extreme form, everyone within the boundaries was left to die or survive, until the outbreak ended.” Donald G McNeil Jr

“So you really don’t have to choose between being “pro-Israel” or “pro-Palestine.” If you support secularism, democracy, and a two-state solution — and you oppose Hamas, settlement expansion, and the occupation — you can be both.” Ali A Rizvi
