A big thank you to the staff and geniuses at the Apple Store for helping restore my iPhone 6 the other day after having lost the phone the previous day. They were a huge help. I got into this discussion with one of their geniuses about Fibonacci numbers and Perfect Numbers, and that was a lot of fun.
I am writing a short story about the Lost and Found iPhone 6, and I might translate it into multiple other languages when I am finsihed. Here are drafts of the English and German versions:
The website is still being developed, but the items below are on the list:
- Online Free Press:
- Kronen Zeitung Guten Morgan e-mail in multiple languages
- Local and International News Links
- 2nd or 3rd Book in progress:
- I actually helped co-author one, a non-fiction medical book, that was published, believe it or not.
- That one did not sell very well, but it is available on Amazon dot com USA or Germany
- There was a second medical book that did not get published.
- I still have slides from a senior board review at UVA that probably has cases and images better than those in the book.
- I am working on another book now, a different genre, but I am not sure that I will ever finish it or publish it.
- I have a number of audio recordings and videos that I might want to use in the book, so it needs to be an eBook. Here are some of them:
Interview with Russian Law Student
Customer Service Call to the Social Security Administration in the USA. WARNING !!! AT LEAST R-RATED !!!

Here is a WIKI page describing Schizoaffective Disorder: Schizoaffective Disorder. There are probably thousands or tens of thousands of journal articles about Schizoaffective Disorder for anyone interested in reading more about that problem, for example, The schizoaffective disorder diagnosis: a conundrum in the clinical setting. .
I might add that sleep deprivation, starvation and homelessness are also contributory factors in mental illness. I have been experiencing those conditions quite a bit recently. In fact, I once went to a homeless shelter, knowing that I would not be allowed to stay there, but I went to ask them if they had a vacant bed for another homeless person that I know. Eventually, I will be so sleep deprived and delusional that I will be locked up in a psychiatric ward, and then I will not be able to blog anymore or operate my small business startup.
I need to write a handwritten note addressed to:
6161 AMERICAN BLVD W
BLOOMINGTON, MN 55438
and let them know that I would like to get off of Social Security Disability as soon as I make enough income from my startup business to qualify for that. Unfortunately, I still have not earned much, if any, supplemental income and I have a huge operating loss for my startup business in 2017. I already filed my Federal Tax Return and purchased the Audit Defense package from TurboTax because I think that I might need that this year. I might want to start asking for donations and seed money on my website for my book project. Then, I might actually be able to tell the Federal Government and the SSA that I no longer need to be begging them for my SSA Disability payments like I have been for the last 6 months or so.
SORRY, BUT I REALLY NEED TO START ASKING FOR SUPPORT AND DONATIONS FOR SOME OF THESE CRAZY PROJECTS THAT I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON.
THE STRIPE BUTTON WAS IN A DEMO MODE (just enter "4242 4242 4242 4242" for a credit card number, a date in the future, a 3 digit code and an e-mail for that), BUT I OCCASIONALLY MAKE IT LIVE MOSTLY FOR TESTING PURPOSES. IT SEEMS TO WORK !!
PLEASE SEND COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS TO: Customer Service E-mail.
There are also GOFUNDME.COM campaigns mentioned below. those donations or payments eventually should make it to my AUSTRIAN bank account, after GOFUNDME.COM and STRIPE take any commissions that they get. I am looking for a way to automatically allocate those funds to a beneficiary's account if they have one. My "co-star" actually might sort of already have a bank account if she would activate that E-Pay PrePaid Debit Mastercard that I gave to her. Not sure what she did with that.
- GoFundMe.com campaign: Link to Gofundme dot com campaign for dog shelter and house for parents, 100 € goal ! Subject to upwards revision later. The original campaign, the Joint Venture, was shut down after raising 20 Euros. I owe my co-star 10 Euros.
- GoFundMe.com campaign: Link to Gofundme dot com campaign for starving writer, literally, 2000 € goal, medical expenses
- Failed Business Startup: Link to MedPics, a Telemedicine Consultation Service

Austria might want to think about offering these: Artist / Writer VISA for Digital Nomads
The answer to the title question is "YES", some are. There are scientific peer-reviewed articles about that kind of thing. If you are interested, click on the link below:
The savant syndrome
- Treffert, D. A. (2009). The savant syndrome: an extraordinary condition. A synopsis: past, present, future.
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 364(1522), 1351–1357.
An interesting thing about one of the authors of that paper is that he has a FaceBook page here:
Darold Treffert FaceBook Page
I HAVE BEEN DOING SOME ROUGH CALCULATIONS, AND I REALIZED THAT THE RENT THAT I HAVE BEEN PAYING FOR HOSTELS AND HOTELS IS PRETTY CLOSE TO WHAT I WOULD PROBABLY END UP PAYING FOR A FLAT, STUDIO OR APARTMENT, ESPECIALLY IF I SHARED THE FLAT, STUDIO OR APARTMENT WITH ANOTHER PERSON. ALSO, THE US GOVERNMENT NOW HAS ENOUGH OF MY MONEY TO PAY MY IMMIGRATION LAWYER HIS $1500.00 USD FEE, AND THE US GOVERNMENT MIGHT ALSO HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY MY $2500.OO USD APPLICATION FEE FOR CITIZENSHIP RENUNCIATION.
THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION SENT MY PAY TO JP MORGAN CHASE ON 16 MAY 2018 INSTEAD OF DELIVERING IT TO ME. I AM REALLY PISSED OFF ABOUT THAT, SO MUCH SO THAT I AM CONTINUING TO WRITE ABOUT IT.
I keep bumping into my co-stars because we have entered the "flirting stage" of our relationship, see Link to WIKI page about 'flirting', of our relationship. Flirting can be a lot of fun, probably better than actually having sex really.
Keeping the references below and deleted the specifics about who I had a discussion with about psychology at the club.
Local Time in Vienna, Austria when this text was rendered: 06/22/2018 03:47:24 am
Guten Morgen! (Good Morning!)
Google translate is functioning relatively well and I have a Google Developer account, so I will keep using it. There must, however, be other translation engines around somewhere. Excuse Google if there is a factual error or if it sounds funny.
In the near future, I should probably just use an AJAX call or an API to automate the process of translating from Deutsch into as many languages as I want to because that would be much easier than doing in manually, maybe sometime when I have more time on my hands. One problem with making that procedure completely automated is that the Google AI engine that is apparently learning how to translate languages would stop learning how to do that and would just arrive at a "steady-state".
There is a translator called iTranslate that I just installed on my iPhone 6, probably created by the people at Apple, Inc.
Staying with translations into languages that are popular, that I have at least a little familiarity with or which are native to people who I have met recently. My language list has gotten pretty large at this point. I should not have to add many more to represent most of Eastern and Western Europe.
I recently met a Universität Wien law student at a Starbucks off of Graben near Stephansplatz in Vienna, Austria, so that is one reason why I added Russian (she is Russian, listen to the audio recording) to the list. I told her the same story that I have been telegraphing all around Europe for months now. She was even aware of that international arbitration law competition that was recently held in Vienna, Austria. I learned about that from a Turkish law student from Istanbul, Turkey while I was just sort of hanging out at the Vienna International Airport because I was thinking about leaving Austria in order to comply with the Schengen Region rules governing travel within the Schengen Region. I cannot believe how many law students they have at that Universität. It must be one of the largest law schools in Europe.
I even have a pretty interesting audio recording of my interview with the law student from Russia, but I am not sure that I want to post it on my website yet because she might sue me for libel or slander or something. I did listen to it again though and it really sounds OK to release into the public domain.
I could probably listen to the audio recording below twice per week and not get sick of it.
Here it is:
- I did recently meet someone from South Africa. She speaks English, Afrikaans and can recognize some Dutch, probably because during the colonial days the Dutch, the British and other Europeans inhabited South Africa. Sort of amazing, but the Constitution of South Africa recognizes 11 different langauges: Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, siSwati, Tshivenda, Xitsonga, Afrikaans, English, isiNdebele, isiXhosa and isiZulu.
- I try to make up for yesterdays by getting an early start on the following days, sometimes, but not always. There have been days when I have forgotten to translate the Guten Morgen message completely, and then there was that time when my iPhone 6 was lost, missing or stolen and I spent almost all day trying to find it. I even filed a police report, and then later found the iPhone 6 myself through amateurish detective work and then wrote a short story about that incident and posted the story right here on this website. I have been hoping that people would read that and then contribute like maybe 1 or 2 Euros because I could use 1 or 2 Euros for something.
I have been making idle threats against the US Social Security Administration and the US government about Social Security Administration Disability payments that are 2 months past due now, yesterday. That amounts to at least $3200.00 USD. The SSA has told me "not to worry", or that is what it seems like because they said that they are going to make up for their late payments by depositing two or three, probably 3 now, payments into a bank account that I do not even own or control in July or August. That is really messed up, in my opinion.
I think that they should just send me a paper check payment for May and June to my UPS mailbox in the United States of America. That is apparently against their policies and procedures, or they just will not allow me to make that request for some reason.

Klar ist für Sebastian Kurz: Wenn Europa nicht bald gemeinsam etwas zustande bringt, dann sind nationale Alleingänge – wie etwa die in Deutschland von Innenminister Horst Seehofer geplanten Massen-Zurückweisungen letztlich nur logisch.
Strache und Kickl bei Italiens Scharfmacher Salvini. Italiens neuer „starker Mann“ Matteo Salvini – der als Innenminister schon die eigenen Häfen für Rettungsschiffe mit Flüchtlingen sperren hat lassen – ist derzeit in aller Munde. Österreichs Regierung kommt der harte Kurs bei unseren Nachbarn gerade recht, um weiter an der „Achse der Willigen“ zu bauen.
Vizekanzler Strache und Innenminister Kickl trafen gestern auf den italienischen Scharfmacher, der Europa vor sich hertreiben möchte. Aus Rom berichtet Christoph Budin.
Einen schönen Tag! (Have a nice day!)
