Ein Wirklich Schöner Tag
Today I played 8-Ball with one of my friends after school. After I talked with him about the different rules people play by in the USA and Germany, we found out (thanks to the guidelines of the German Billiard Union) that we had both been playing with false guidelines.
After sharing a Brezel and talking a bit about politics, I headed home to prepare for the movies. The reason my host dad and I were going to the theater was to see the TED Conference Opening Session (Session 1: Our Tomorrow) . It was the first time ever they broadcast it to theaters across the world, and I was very excited to take part in such a monumental event. The collection of speakers was absolutely astonishing. The range of ideas represented was unlike anything I had ever seen before. After one of the TED Talks on taking time away from work to play, we got to see this really funny music video filmed in low gravity. You can check it out here: Upside Down Inside Out
