After the Pentecost Mass, which we crashed with @descampsdavid for various reasons. I quite liked it, perhaps because I was still slighty drunk after a glass of Orval (for genetical reasons, I’m drunk really fast with the slightest amount of alcohol, but at soon I have reached that buzzed plateau, I can go on for liters and liters of various alcoholic beverages without much trouble), but mostly because the music was gorgeous, with a mad organist doing his best to improvise some incredible erotico-horrific giallo soundtrack but mastering Bach too, and a good choir compensating for the plastic garden chairs and the almost reformed nudity of the walls of the cathedral. If I were able to take communion, I would also have beneficiated from a plenary indulgence.
Tu viens de spoiler sans le savoir…
L’intérêt de ne plus suivre GoT c’est que je peux lire sans risquer grand chose les articles des sites de geek, au moins ils foutent la paix aux séries obscures que je regarde ;o)
Glad that you came home alive!
Oh well, if only I had looked in my secondary bag, I would have found not only my pull-over, but also a light rain jacket, both things that would have been perfect to avoid getting drenched… But in defense of my levity, I’ve had the perfect weather when I went biking to work ; the storm waited five minutes only before the end of my shift to begin.
Timelapse of boat lift in Strépy-Thieu, Hainaut, Belgium with @laurentbelkacem
Amazing piece of engineering where 1350T boats are lifted 75 meters up or down!
Amazing achievement indeed, even if my mad scientist side would be more thrilled by tobogganging, tyroling or parachuting said boats from canals to canals (the whole maneuver is about ten minutes long).

Green leather and wood dashboard – this is my kind of luxury. I think this is an early 1930s Hotchkiss 480. Photos by @descampsdavid
