    Yugoslav Partisan/World War II films were very popular not only in Socialist Yugoslavia, but in a number of other countries as well, including China. The Chinese didn't run American Westerns or Soviet movies of a similar nature, and for some reason they didn't make many of their own, so Yugoslav Partisan films seemed a good choice.

    One of the most successful was the 1972 film Valter Brani Sarajevo (Valter Defends Sarajevo) which 1 billion Chinese people have seen. Now the Chinese have decided to finance the remake, and anyone from ex Yugoslavia may apply for auditions.



    Apparently, Yugoslav Partisan films were as popular in China as American Westerns were in Yugoslavia. When my parents were watching Clint Eastwood, the Chinese people their age were watching Yugoslav Partisan movies. hehe

    Teachers don't like creative students

    Research has indicated that teachers prefer traits that seem to run counter to creativity, such as conformity and unquestioning acceptance of authority
    Research has suggested that traits associated with creativity may not only be neglected, but actively punished (Myers & Torrance, 1961; Stone, 1980). Stone (1980) found that second graders who scored highest on tests of creativity were also those identified by their peers as engaging in the most misbehavior (e.g., “getting in trouble the most”).
    What a shame.

    I should stop talking about my problems to my 'loyal' people,
    no one -sadly- cares.

    I learned that "Mark Twain" is a measurement. "A Mississippi River term: the second mark on the line that measured depth signified two fathoms, or twelve feet—safe depth for the steamboat." (Mark Twain at Large: The Mississippi River)

    Samuel Clemens took it as his pen name after having been a riverboat captain on the Mississippi.

    Also, holy cow was Mark Twain an ENFP! I just finished watching Ken Burns 's American Lives on Prime and I was like, WOW!

    The hot dog was created at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago by Anton Ludwig Feuchtwanger. He originally offered white gloves to customers to hold the weiners but he quickly ran out of gloves so he used buns instead. "The American Plate: a culinary history in 100 bites"

    Mark Twain was also good friends with Nikola Tesla.
