And this -


This picture comes from a recently discovered blog that has quickly become one of my favourites.
The FAIL blog is full of all those wonderful pics when the shutter goes at exactly the right (or wrong) time.
This little vid though is one that's been doing the rounds for a few weeks now - but seeings as I've put up a post titled 'hedgehogs' it seems silly not to add it here.

Cloud Streets

This video is about about strange cloud formations seen over the Sea of Okhotsk last summer and provides a rare close-up bird’s-eye view of Cloud Streets, which are created when convection currents cut low-lying cumulus into long, clean strips. According to the video narration, these clouds floated just over the sea surface, stood 300 meters tall and stretched for over 100 kilometers.

The Latest From Improv Everywhere

'For our latest mission, three agents entered a Starbucks one by one with their own giant desktop computer and CRT monitor. They bought coffee and worked at their computers as if they were laptops. One computer even had a Wi-Fi card installed, enabling our agent to surf the web. Enjoy the videos first and then go behind the scenes with our photo report below.'

Edo Period Monsters By Sawaki Suushi

In the sophisticated popular culture of the Edo period (1603-1868), much attention was devoted to Japan’s rich pantheon of traditional monsters and apparitions, known as youkai. Sometimes frightening, sometimes humorous, these compelling Japanese folk creatures were the subject of numerous artistic and literary works. One such work was Hyakkai Zukkan, a collection of picture scrolls completed in 1737 by Sawaki Suushi, a relatively unknown artist who studied under master painter Hanabusa Itchou (1702-1772). Hyakkai Zukkan’s colorful depictions of Japan’s most notorious creatures inspired (and were copied by) youkai artists for generations. Here is a peek inside.

Death By Saw


A Little Nonsense Now And Zen

Joshu began the study of Zen when he was sixty years old and continued until he was eighty, when he realized Zen.
He taught from the age of eighty until he was one hundred and twenty.
A student once asked him: "If I haven't anything in my mind, what shall I do?"
Joshu replied: "Throw it out."
"But if I haven't anything, how can I throw it out?" continued the questioner.
"Well," said Joshu, "then carry it out."

All Hail The Kitty?

Caught this hanging around the other day -

Hello Concerned Christians. Our organization is revealing the evil faces behind our children’s beloved CARTOONS. Often as parents, we trust that our children are being exposed to innocent programming when it comes in the form or animation- DON’T BE FOOLED. There are many examples of the evil one at work on our TV’s. Join our organization in the Crusade against cartoons that compromise our society’s moral fiber.

Christians Against Cartoons are at it again - the same people who recommended you didn't go to see the Simpsons Movie because 'It showed too much cartoon butt' have this to say about my darling Hello Kitty.

Susanna, a concerned Christian, recently wrote into Christians Against Cartoons with the following question:
Hi there - maybe you can help me. My Christian neighbor says that Hello Kitty isn’t good for her daughter’s spirit. I’ve searched the Internet to find out why. Can you tell me why or post on your site? Thank you.

Well Susanna, I would really like to thank you for asking this for allowing your child to accumulate a menagerie of Hello Kitty dolls is akin to when the Hebrews, after having just been led out of their bondage in Egypt by Moses, decided to mimic their former Egyptian slave masters and worship a calf cast from purest gold! As it says in Deuteronomy 9:16: 'And I looked, and behold, you had sinned against the Lord your God–had made for yourselves a molded calf! You had turned aside quickly from the way which the Lord had commanded you.'

It is by no mere coincidence that Hello Kitty herself resembles the cat-headed Sekhmet, the Egyptian sun goddess of destruction! There are also strong resemblances between Hello Kitty and the Lower Nile love goddess Bast. Often cats and cat idols were entombed in the burial chambers of the Pharaohs for the cat had a deep mystical significance to these pagan slave drivers.

Permitting your child to lie in a bed covered in Hello Kitty dolls, you are allowing her to lie in a mock Egyptian burial chamber! This seemingly harmless fascination with these dolls can lead your child down the path of the occult. The so-called 'goth' teens who paint their faces to resemble corpses and worship death are also often seen with Hello Kitty memorabilia and stickers incongruously affixed to their usually black attire. This is because these poor, misguided youngsters who have given their eternal souls over to the darkness, know the masked meaning of these cuddly idols. The Hello Kitty, the ChocoCat, The Badtz Maru are just sugar coated stand-ins for Sekhmet, the Anubis and Ra. These are the same gods that The Lord cast down into the sulfur pit of hell and made into demons! Their power, which allowed Ramses to turn his staff into a serpent, cannot be underestimated today.

I don't think I'll tell them that to add to my HK addiction I also love Stargate and can read hieroglyphs ....mmmm
