God Explained in a Taxi Ride

February 17, 2015

Paul Arden’s God Explained in a Taxi Ride – humorous and compressed book on issues that have haunted men’s minds since our earliest days. Frankly, as an agnostic, I did not expect an explanation but I cannot agree more with the statement:

LK“It’s the unknown that makes life so rich.”

This fabulous book appeared in Bulgarian thanks to the translation of Lyubov Kostova – a versatile personality with various passions to name a few – background in Indian studies, translations from English of drama works, currently CEO of British Council in Bulgaria. FameLab and Sofia Science Festival are unthinkable without her.

Dunning–Kruger effect

February 13, 2015

Unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability much higher than is accurate. Conversely, highly skilled individuals tend to underestimate their competence …

Dunning–Kruger effect – miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others.

It is all about miscalibration – one way or the other!

Ha Ha Ha Impro

Those guys from the Ha Ha Ha Impro – the first professional improvised theatre in Bulgaria are indeed amazing. I saw one of their performances last night for the first time and even if I wish to see it again – it is not possible. Every staging is unique, as the audience is involved too 🙂

Le Week-End

February 1, 2015

Le Week-End (2013) – Paris 30 years after a couple’s honeymoon. A very British movie about love that has been broken down by loss and disappointments. Despite the good cast’s acting, my expectations in terms of humour were higher. Not too bad for a lazy Week-End afternoon.
