These final months of 1888 were spent in Turin in a state of almost constant euphoria. By December, however, he was exhibiting unmistakable sighs of mental derangement. In a series of crazy letters he expressed the belief he had deposed both the German Emperor and the Pope, had arranged for all anti-Semites to be shot, and that he was, in fact, 'God'. At the beginning of January 1889 he flung his arms around a horse being beaten by a coachman in a Turin piazza, collapsed into tears, and was taken to an asylum, first in Basel then in Jena. Though he did not die until 1900 his final years were spent in a vegetative state. Among doctors who have taken an interest in the question of why, at age 44, Nietzsche went mad, the traditional diagnosis of syphilis is now largely discredited. Though there is speculation that he had a slow-developing brain-tumor, it is more likely he suffered from a bi-polar disorder that eventually developed schizophrenia-like symptoms. ( He saw rifles pointing at him through windows in Jena.)

Nice post! I found it really interesting, from a Guatemala City native and inhabitant’s point of view (you’re not asking, but history is my profession, anthropology is my second trade, and I know my country a little bit more than the usual guatemalteco). I had never thought about the danger of these “calentadores”, which most of us middle class urban guatemalans use daily throughout our lives. Of course, usually the wires are covered by isolating tape or some PVC devices. The ones with exposed copper are too careless exceptions, as far as I’ve experienced. The only times when I have feared for my life with these heating devices is when I have installed them. I’ve had some shocks while showering, in especially carelessly installed calentadores, but I have never heard or read about any deaths caused by one.
I find especially interesting the fact that this most common fixture of our daily lives is seen by you “first world” people as a life threatening experience! Then again, most of the traveler’s blog entries I’ve read show an intense fear of Guatemala city. To us capitalinos, the risk of our calentadores is so insignificant, compared to the other life threatening risks our great city offers everywhere and every day, that we just don’t think about it.
Nice post! I haven’t read anything else on the blog, but I sincerely congratulate the author and thank all of you travelers for visiting my beautiful and fucked up homeland.
And I strongly suggest to all of you with a real desire to know the real Guatemala, to spend some days in the Capital. It is dangerous, alright, but I think it is impossible to really begin to understand this country without visiting this “hellhole”, as I’ve read it’s been called by more than a traveler blogger.
Saludos, compañeros y compañeras!

I don’t have the resources and time to continue to run the calendar by myself in its current form. I am spread too thinly to do a good job of running ArtCat, improving ArtCat Hosting, promoting and publishing IDIOM , documenting our art collection , and actually getting out to see art. Of course, I also have to make a living through my freelance work. My goal is to narrow the focus of my work I do within the art world, and do one or two things very well, rather than provide lesser versions of many things. As the wonderful Michael Mandiberg pointed out here , there are limits to one’s time/labor/capital and it’s healthy to move one when the time feels right.

You present a persuasive argument for the abandonment of the 5-paragraph essay and suggest a new format for presenting an argument... However, you did not provide much information on what is expected to go in between your introduction and conclusion? You suggested this format opens the essay to compare/contrast, cause/effect, analysis, etc... but how do you suggest students structure an essay with these approaches in practice? Any piece of writing needs some structure and main ideas that are then supported with various pieces of evidence (whether you are writing a historical thesis or a persuasive essay)... If you are abandoning a "main idea followed by supporting evidence" format, what do you propose should take its place? Or perhaps my understanding of the 5-paragraph essay you are speaking of is incorrect?
