  • Passion as the key to motivation

    I’ve wondered once and again why I have such a little level of motivation in my life, when comparing to others. It seems that I’m slowly getting to recognize the causes now. As, one cause seems to be: I did not allow me to be passionate about anything. Why that? As a rational thinker, my […]

  • The engineer masters the world?

    Through all my education I’ve thought that people with good technical and intellectual abilities are in an enviable situation when it comes to utilizing the world and influencing it.

I did not experience to be subject to any curriculum that would exhibit itself in the situations that occur in my life (even worse, I was successful in […]

  • Women's bonus

    There’s currently a very funny thing happening in my favourite 4×4 truck forum. A young woman wants to buy herself a Magirus Mercur 4×4 truck, to live in it. She asked the forum for tips how to check the vehicle and how to drive home, and got a deluge of tips, hints, help, private phone […]
