The 'for those who work on Sunday' surprise thread
Achtung: If you know you'll have to work on Sunday, and wish to be surprised, do not read this thread - unless it is Sunday!
This thread is dedicated to those who have to work on Sundays - like Teri-cheri (aka TIP, tipple, ...). Here we gather during the week things they can read, watch, listen to to sweeten their tea/coffee break, motivated them, make them laugh, think about something else, entertain them, ... on Sundays in office. Of course also people who don't have to work but have to cure a hang-over, digest a strange Saturday night, etc. are heartily invited too!
Not necessarily these things have to be work-related like
just think about what YOU would like to have here on working/unrelaxed/boring Sundays!

So, somewhere I remember the request for a toilet pic... I got even something better:
a men-peeking-over-toilet-wall warning sign in Seoul (that is at least what it looks to me, my Korean isn't what it used to be)
Then, I know somebody who has to work next Sunday and has a deep love for numbers:
Let us now praise prime numbers
With our fathers who begat us:
The power, the peculiar glory of prime numbers
Is that nothing begat them,
No ancestors, no factors,
Adams among the multiplied generations.
None can foretell their coming.
Among the ordinal numbers
They do not reserve their seats, arrive unexpected.
Along the lines of cardinals
They rise like surprising pontiffs,
Each absolute, inscrutable, self-elected.
In the beginning where chaos
Ends and zero resolves,
They crowd the foreground prodigal as forest,
But middle distance thins them,
Far distance to infinity
Yields them rare as unreturning comets.
O prime improbable numbers,
Long may formula-hunters
Steam in abstraction, waste to skeleton patience:
Stay non-conformist, nuisance,
To system, sequence, pattern or explanation.
[from An Anthology of Modern Verse 1940-1960, ed. E. Jennings (Methuen, 1961)]
And finally a virtual-beach-feeling-first-aid-set zum Seele baumeln lassen (to let the soul dangle):
(the lady to the right obviously got headaches from this particular sand castle... )
