Doodling — the spontaneous act of drawing, typically in the margins of whatever one is really supposed to be working on — is more than a humble distraction. While doodling gets a bad rap, it’s actually associated with better learning, creativity and performance. Here are five of doodling’s benefits :

“On the road to holidays… and bullfights”
(Spanish-style bullfights = corridas de toros)

     This drawing was inspired by the contrast between the awareness campaigns against the abandonment of pets on the roads to holidays, carried out by the animal welfare associations, and the festive torture of other animals, supported by the law and mostly funded by public money.

     Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. While empathy is stimulated on one side, it is reduced to nothingness on the other. Even more, one encourages not only to stay passive, but also to take a positive pleasure in the spectacle of another’s suffering.

donald trump kkk great again


Ever wanted to know what is in Trump’s program, beyond 4 words ?…


     Of course, there are some GREAT intellectuals amongst Trump’s supporters – don’t even doubt it. Read Eliot Borenstein’s article Russian Fascists for Trump ! on the Huffington Post website to instruct yourself if you can’t believe it :

“Donald Trump has collected a lovely bouquet of endorsements in his path to the presidency : […] David Duke, Jean-Marie Le Pen, the KKK. It’s the kind of praise that would make a mother proud, if your mother happened to be Leni Riefenstahl [Nazi propagandist film director]. And now he can add Russian philosopher, TV personality, and Duck Dynasty lookalike Alexander Dugin.”
