Charm of old buildings

11 Apr

In Western folklore, dragons are usually portrayed as evil. This is in contrast to Asian dragons, who are traditionally depicted as more benevolent creatures. Many modern stories represent dragons as extremely intelligent creatures who can talk, associated with powerful magic. Dragons have also been shown as guardians and friends of humans, with evil dragons simply misunderstood by humans. In stories a dragon's blood often has magical properties: for example in the opera Siegfried it let Siegfried understand the language of the Forest Bird. The typical dragon protects a cavern or castle filled with gold and treasure.

    Things like that always have a meaning to someone, there is a house in England with two beer cans tiled over in the bathroom wall.. Yes, it was me, drinking and wall tiling can go together. The meaning to me is conceled art :cheers:

    But smarter people in ours for certain, after all it is university 😀 Does every decoration on these old buildings have some meaning or sometimes it's there just because it's pretty? Like those undressed bodies, bottles, books, different animals?

    😀 We've kinda made it original, it's not renovated often enough 😀

    It gives that touch of warmness and old days to the building 😀 So it's good. I guess I wouldn't recognize it if I would see it somewhere in Germany…

    😀 Anyway, if we go back on topic, I've heard that one of the university buildings in Belgrade is actually a copy of some building in Germany. It's a bit disappointing as it's really pretty but it lacks originality…I like it when I see unique old building…

    Actually, it was an after war gift from Germany, it's their fault 😀

    Thats terrible, the unversity should be sued for breach of copyright

    Then the germans should be sued for breach of good taste. Unoriginal buildings are not in good taste :knight:

    I don't like when somebody is using some latest fashion decorations just because that's the most modern thing you can buy. It has to have some meaning. You can't just buy a lion or a dragon figure and put it in front of your doors, it makes no sense…If your house is your town decoration, and every house is that, then you have to care about those stuff, you can't just make your decision just by considering your taste of what is beautiful, you have to think of your town too… ps. Lion is not the latest fashion 😀

    The thing has to match the age of the house too.A friend of mine moved into a third floor flat. The people that rented it before put mock tudor beams on the walls and ceilings. It looked totally dumb

    Oh, maybe it would work for some countryside houses, but for apartments…Of course ceilings would have to be prettier than those that appear on google search 😀 Did he at least had some discount because of the apartment look? 😀

    Not at all, however his rent was paid by the government as he was unemployed, so I guess he could not be too choosy 😀

    In some ways, both 😆

    Interesting thing, I don't think there is such practice here… Did he has to sell his soul to the government or just accept dumb looking apartment 😀

    I would say how he didn't have luck but then I've realized how he got his rent paid by the government 😀 A place of your own is a good thing to sell your soul for :yes:

    Thats the funniest part, he never realised that he had sold his soul, he thought he was free.. 😆

    Oh, he's so naive 😆

    I am afraid so, I tried to explain it but he would not listen

    Oh..I think there is no such a thing like absolute freedom.

    I have never experienced it myself..

    I think those people who eat raw mice are close to absolute freedom. They've got rid of borders our eyes/sense of taste/brain gave us and they just live…I don't want to experience that kind of freedom :no:

    Neither do the mice 😆

    😆 .You do know, of course, that the mice are the dominant species on this planet right? :p .They built it as an advanced computer in order to determine the ultimate question to life, the Universe and everything! :p (they already know the answer, but they need the question in order to understand it! :whistle: )
