Waste Pictures

Sites matching images to pregiven text have been done before, but the texts are seldom as good as those used at zweiterblick's sudelbild: the pictures are matched to (randomly selected?) aphorisms of scientist and all-around Enlightened fellow GC Lichtenberg (about whom more). The relation is sometimes fairly literal, sometimes fairly opaque, but it's worth it for the idiosyncratic selection of aphorisms in any case.

Still not reason enough to learn German.

literal: To use the vox humana organ register.

opaque: It's a sad love when the first time you sleep with another is in the grave.

the main link: At the time he'd have almost broken his precious neck.

Only the second one makes any kind of sense to me, even in the original.

I had sort of assumed that people would look at multiple entries, jedicus.
