Day 42 – Some Random Stuff

28 Oct

Over the past few weeks I’ve had a whole bunch of minor adventures that did not make the papers. For your reading pleasure, here they are

I find Segways just hilarious.

GOB

I went to the Italian Science and Technology Museum in Milan

Man *may* have not been meant to fly - but he definitely was not meant to hover.

I lived for two weeks on a street that had “beer” in its name.

True story.

For some reason the city of Berlin has little Tron tanks stenciled all over the windows of the subway cars.

Very strange.

Visited a Soviet monument to World War II. Was incredible. See for yourself.

I’ve always wanted to go to an Uber 30 party.

Sadly I have not yet gone.

This was hilarious

And still is.

Dawson? Really?

The fourth city on your list from that timezone is Dawson? Honestly Berlin, sometimes…

If you ever screw up at work, just blame it on the guy who can’t speak English.

Ah Tibor, how many times have you saved my ass.

This guy went to the Sabres/Kings game and bought a 200 euro jersey.

Aussies are just mad!

Walking home one night I met this guy and he had this massive camera and he was taking these really cool pictures that I will never get to see because they take forever to develop.

The film for one shot is like 20 euros.

This is what he was capturing.

Imagine what it will look like with his awesome camera.

This is the tiniest car I have ever seen.

It's the truth.

I did not go to this event.

Also true.

On Friday was out with some friends. We’re walking to the bar and one of the guys (from France) goes into the dep to buy a traveler. He comes out with a bottle of vodka. I thought he was going to get a beer.

Nope. Vodka.

I keep seeing these markers everywhere.

I'm going to find out what they are for...

even if it kills me...

      Hey Jason – Glad you’re having a fun time in Europe… Someone is not going to want to come back to work in January!

        I hear our new work area has no windows to the outside. 😉

    Jason last pictures might be survey markers

      I need to do more research!

      They are survey markers 🙂 for (regular) checking of the street elevation…

      “Punkt” is easy: “point.”
      Your dictionary shows you that “Mess” is shorthand for “measuring,”
      Mess Punkt – Measuring Points for surveying

        My German Civil engineering friend says they are for determining elevation. I need to check on that. But yes I do believe they are survey markers.
