Double Stupidity in Yerevan

October 19, 2007

This is kind of a continuation to the post on Oneworld Multimedia blog about the construction mess in Yerevan and alleged money being spent on digging deep needless holes as if for constructing subways, although the rumor has it that “…the construction is being done now so that the authorities can spend as much money as possible in the shortest amount of time and siphon off much of it…”

However, this allegation may turn out to be true especially when the huge hole dug along Khanjyan street at Khanjyan and Tigran Mets intersection is now filled back.

What I got from talking to some people, no subway will be constructed there as one of the reasons I was told was that only after digging deep into it they found out that the metro passes under that area!

Almost funny, if it weren’t that sad. How on earth could they not take into consideration the fact that they might stumble upon the underground, especially when by simple logics one may presume that the line from Hanrapetutyan Hraparak to Zoravar Andranik stations should pass right under that area!!?? Didn’t they bother to shoot a glance at the metro map before starting their destruction??!!

If that’s not the case, then I wonder, what is a logical explanation for laying a double layered asphalt along Khanjyan street, then digging it deep, then filling it back??

Double stupid!!!

“Symphony of stones” being destroyed

October 9, 2007

Thanks to vhovhan for driving my attention to this and his email. As Arminfo reports:

ArmInfo. The unique quadras known as “Symphony of stones” are again being destroyed Garni. As it became clear to ArmInfo correspondent, it is already two days that destruction of
unique and picturesque monument of the nature is taking place not far from the pagan temple of the I century Garni, in the Azat river gorge. Two years ago ArmInfo managed to signal in time about a similar fact and to prevent destruction of the unique quadras.

That time Ecology Minister Vardan Ayvazyan promised to involve the stones zone in the administrative territory of Khosrof park, but local authorities prevented that stemming from their own ideas and benefit. Today several local residents supported by the village administration continue doing vandalism, “cutting” beautiful basalt quadras created by the nature and being a subject of vital interest of numerous tourists, and use them like construction material. The head of Garni village administration is responsible for this, but he did not want to have contacts with the press. It is not clear if the government will meddle in this matter or not. The village “businessmen” need these quadras, which are perfect by form and processed by the nature over hundreds of years, for sale. The quadras are so perfect that they may be used in construction of cottages without processing. According to the unspecified information, the head of Garni village administration himself “legally” allowed cutting of the stones. But the latter does not simply answer telephone calls of journalists.

Funny thing. You are not sure whether you are ill or not unless say you see a doctor, or say in case of doubting about having temperature you take your temperature. When you are not sure, you still behave like a healthy person, but when say you find out that you have temperature, you already feel sick. At least that’s the case with me.

I caught a cold and it is already the third day that I feel like having temperature as I’m burning inside, but as far as I have lost the thermometer and my folks forget to buy a new one, I’m a bit unsure about my current condition, so I keep on sitting in front of my computer, like doing it now, and working as if nothing is happening. But I know if I took my temperature and it appeared to be high, I’d get into my bed immediately drinking many cups of tea and trying to perspire to lower it, as far as usually when I feel kind of weak, I keep on taking my temperature like every 30 minutes. However, I’m not grouchy at all when I’m ill (probably that’s the case when I feel ok 😉 )

Now I think that probably it’d be better if I never took my temperature and thought that I’m fine. Suggestibility, or what they call it, is a great power!

P.S. Because of my flu, I can’t get injected against the outbreak of German measles and rubella in Armenia, as the consequences will be disastrous. And though some people say they won’t go for any injection, I think they should. It shouldn’t do any harm, should it? Then why not?
Don’t think suggestibility will help here when red spots appear on your body 😉
