Things to do - general

Madeira [mɐ’deiɾɐ] (vom portugiesischen Wort madeira, „Holz“) ist eine portugiesische Insel 951 km südwestlich von Lissabon und 737 km westlich der marokkanischen Küste im Atlantischen Ozean. Sie gehört mit der kleineren Insel Porto Santo und der unbewohnten kleineren Inselgruppe Ilhas Desertas zur Inselgruppe Madeira, die gemeinsam mit den ebenfalls unbewohnten Ilhas Selvagens die Autonome Region Madeira bildet.

Als Teil Portugals gehört Madeira zum Gebiet der Europäischen Union. 94,5 % der Bevölkerung Madeiras gehören der römisch-katholischen Kirche an. Madeira hat etwa 235.000 Einwohner auf einer Fläche von 801 km². Davon entfallen 741 km² auf die Hauptinsel Madeira und 42,5 km² auf die kleinere Insel Porto Santo, 14,2 km² auf die Ilhas Desertas sowie 3,6 km² auf die Ilhas Selvagens.

Die Bewohner von Madeira heißen Madeirer bzw. Madeirerinnen, das Adjektiv zu Madeira lautet madeirisch.

Die Zeitzone ist wie im Mutterland Portugal WEZ und entspricht im Winter der koordinierten Weltzeit (UTC + 0, gegenüber Mitteleuropa − 1 Stunde). Für die Zeit von Ende März bis Ende Oktober ist wie im übrigen Europa die Sommerzeit eingeführt, so dass die Zeitdifferenz das ganze Jahr über unverändert bleibt.

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure? On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee.
