Everything you have

28 Mar

They say the average European has 10.000 things. Its pretty hard to find out who they are but according to Simplify they were statisticians at the University of Paderborn in Germany, while Revierflaneur quotes from a catalogue to an exhibition (roughly translated as Which Things Do We Need?) that travelled to about 5 German museums in the mid-nineties. Either way my immediate mental picture is me picking up each of those 10.000 things at some time during any given year, cleaning them, washing them, drying them, dusting them off, maintaining them, repairing them, […] and putting them down again somewhere. Makes me tired just to think of it. So think: Ursus Wehrli. He’s the kind of guy you want to come and sort it all out for you. I mean, look at what he does for Alphabet Noodle Soup. And if you take him to the public swimming pool… Did I mention he’s Swiss or did you guess?
