Much quicker.And now we are back to water-colours again. Nowadays, they just ride in Gogh's vanWhat? Left-hand or right-hand drive van? Hear today, gone tomorrow.I'm not sure. Check the orientation of the rearview Miro'sHe certainly Escherred in a new era!Indeed. At moments like these we realise that we are standing on the shoulders of giants.Aren't we perched the back of a turtle? (And isn't it turtles all the way down?)Soon we will fall off a cliff; it is also very tortoiseous.Indeed! We'll shatter when we hit the hard rep-tile floor!We are now entering the bue period.

I got in touch today with flatmates from the old days when we were living in loca vida Barcelona. They told me their little girl won a world champion title of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (juvenile category). I even didn't know that exists to be honest. Damn, it is weird to think that the little girl ('Barbie') you used to take to school can now break you into pieces in no time.World championFB

What's that mess? I cannot stand even 10 seconds of looking at that...David Haye is back. He's all for what I love boxing, the Muhammad Ali of my generation. His first fight was an easy win and the next one is in May. I hope they won't set him to fight some cave trolls like Kitschko or Fury and he will be able to remind the world the finesse and culture of boxing.This one was big: Klitschko vs. HayeKlitschko won on points, but Haye won on class for me. Klitschko's a typical Ukranian guy: wide shoulders and long arms, which he uses to clinch and corner and which made it hard for Haye to reach him with his quick aim-lock-fire attacks... and typically boring too: jab... jab... jab... - maybe you should try something new, honey? - jab-jab... jab-jab... паніка ядра!!! I think he should go MMA :-/ I can imagine some young talents like Anthony Joshua will one day take him down. Joshua has similar physical advantages, but topped with agility and intelligence of Haye style. It's inspiring to watch how he perfects his style with every fight...

The Notorious (for his pre-fight rambling, I guess) Connor Mcgregor loses to Nate Diaz(by submission...)Nate Diaz entered the fight on 12 day notice. He's vegan. How to put it, guys...Just for the record, I took it from Nate himself:

Wrestling? There are different styles in all martial arts... a lot can happen before the fight moves to the ground.
