Apparently, there is now a TV series about gay zombies. What will be next?

The lead is cute though.

It is expected that the Catalan Parliamentary elections today would result in a landslide victory for parties supporting independence from Spain. Which is fine with me. But if Catalans claim that their main motive is their unwillingness to financially support the rest of Spain they should probably think twice about waving the EU flags - while Spain as a whole, including Catalonia, falls among the less-developed EU Member States that are mostly subsidized by the EU, an independent Catalonia, if it becomes a new EU Member State, could find itself among the "rich" Member States subsidizing not only the rest of Spain but also Greece, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Poland and the Czech Republic.

It may surprise some, but a small landlocked country like the Czech Republic (in our more than 1000 years history, we had our own direct access to sea only twice, I think, in the 12th/13th century - around 1273 to the Adriatic Sea under King Premysl Ottokar II, who owned Trieste, and in early 1300s to the Baltic Sea, under Wenceslaus II and his sons Wenceslaus III, who were also Kings of Poland) does have some naval, and even colonial history (even though not nearly in the same scale as, for example, the even smaller Courland - see Courland colonization).

In the second half of the 17th century, Augustine Herman, a Czech émigré and corsair on the brig La Grace, owned rather large chunks of Maryland - the Bohemia Manor (now Chesapeake City). Unfortunately, the two years old replica of La Grace has recently run aground but it has just been announced that it has been salvaged and is now being tugged to a dock for repairs. Praise Neptune!

Otherwise, Czech naval history is not so successful. The SMS Viribus Unitis, manned mostly by Czech sailors, was sunk by Italians in 1918 and the Czechoslovak merchant navy (also here) was "privatised" (read stolen) by Viktor Kozeny, aka The Pirate of Prague...

Now that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the European Union, will the Nobel Prize for Economics go to Greece?
