bit o' Nietzsche for a Monday morning

O Mensch! Gib acht!
Was spricht die tiefe Mitternacht?
"Ich schlief, ich schlief -,
Aus tiefem Traum bin ich erwacht: -
Die Welt ist tief,
Und tiefer als der Tag gedacht.
Tief ist ihr Weh -,
Lust - tiefer noch als Herzeleid:
Weh spricht: Vergeh!
Doch alle Lust will Ewigkeit -,
- Will tiefe, tiefe Ewigkeit!"

Facts about jumpers

Hear me, my brothers:

Sooner or later, in every relationship, comes the key moment when your girlfriend gives you a jumper.

Brothers, we know what this jumper means. It is warm and fluffy, it is for you to wear and the message it conveys is:

"This man belongs to me. He is my boyfriend.

He is a little shorn sheep. "

And yet it is most strangely and mysteriously true, as you will undoubtedly discover, that the quality of the jumper is a very good indicator of the quality of the girlfriend.
