Life Has Priorities

(Click for larger image)

The Colorado and Arizona wildfires have been wreaking havoc, burning thousands of homes, destroying millions of dollars worth of property and taking square miles of forests with it. I am glad to see that someone has their priorities straight.

Not only did this fellow manage to see that his wife got out safely, but he also parred the hole.

What Fashion Mogul Peter Nygard Really Looks Like

Fashion mogul Peter Nygard lives in the Bahamas in Lyford Cay in a compound known as Nygard Cay. The place is known for its wild parties, gorgeous women, lascivious orgies, and fights with rich neighbours.

Below is the official portrait of Pete Nygard:



So what does he really look like now? He was in the local paper lately making a $10,000 donation to some cause. It looks like the hard living is catching up to him.


All this goes to prove that there is nothing stopping the arrow of time. Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

Normal Rectal Temperatures of Some Animals



I am always fascinated by esoteric knowledge. Thus I was recently in a huge library in a private house and came across a reference book from 1965. It had a chart in it of normal rectal temperatures of various animals. Well .... enquiring minds gotta know.

So here are some normal values that you get from sticking a thermometer into the rectum of common farm animals:

  • Pig ~ 102.0 degrees F
  • Sheep ~103.0 degrees F
  • Cow ~ 101.5 degrees F
  • Horse ~ 100.5 degrees
Contrast that with a human where if you stick a probe up his or her bum, you will get 98.6 degrees F.

From the above info, it is obvious that sheep are the hottest, and many a poor lonely shepherd will attest to that. Horses are the coolest.

Very Weird Toadstool Growing on the Forest Floor

I found this weird alien toadstool growing on the forest floor. It looks like a godzilla plant that could rise up and run. There seems to be no stem to it, and it looks like a turtle in a shell. It is some sort of weird and wonderful lifeform. We need a Mikey, because I wonder if it is good to eat, and Mikey will eat anything.

Even More 1960's Vintage Clip Art

Here are some more examples of 1960's clip art that I salvaged from some old year books. Back in those days it was really clip art. Publishers used to publish big books of the stuff, with an entire page of the same image. You would take a pair of scissors, cut out one of the images and paste it with layout glue on the master page. Then the page would be photographed or reproduced as the first step to printing.

The Fashion Models of 2012

I was flying across the Atlantic, and I picked up a free fashion magazine to read that was being distributed on the gate as reading material for the plane ride. This fashion magazine called Stylist is published in the UK.

Throughout the years, there is a definite look of the top models. In the 1960's, Twiggy started the craze of skinny models. In the 1970's, it was big hair. It was high glam in the 1980's. I wanted to do a content analysis of the look of 2012, so I scanned all of the adverts of the top models in this magazine.

In the UK, the last word in fashion, is the putative new Queen of England, Kate Middleton. She was on the cover. The fashion press follow her like bees to honey.


Versace is a big house, and they went muted pink with a tanned model:


Yves Saint Laurent went exotic with a dark skinned model:


Again, pasty while skin seems to be out. High cheekbones and hair up are the norm:



Here we see pink again in this Svarovski advert. And the hair is up.

Wholesomeness, high cheekbones and hair up again for Clarks of UK.

Interestingly, we have the word Pink, but no color pink:


And he we are conventional wholesomeness. The intended audience of this advert is not luxury, or high fashion but the common consumer:

All in all the models are still pretty and sexy, proving that sex does sell.

More Reasons Why To Quit Facebook and LinkedIn



Man, I am looking smarter and smarter every day for quitting Facebook and LinkedIn. Can you imagine that your credit rating will suffer for something that you have posted on LinkedIn or Facebook?

Here is the URL of an article of Privacy Violation on these social networking sites:


And here is a reprint of the article in case it goes off line:

Credit agency plans to use Facebook Inc data to form credit ratings
Monday, 11 June 2012 11:25


Schufa is also looking into using information from other sources including Twitter and Linkedin.


Schufa, Germany's largest credit agency, is planning to use data from Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) to form credit ratings, according to leaked documents says to consumer advisory body Which?

As well as pulling information from Facebook pages the agency is looking into using information from other sources including Twitter, Linkedin and Google Street View to assess individual credit ratings.

The documents, leaked to German broadcaster NDR, suggest the agency is planning to use 'crawling techniques' like those used by search engines to find relevant information with aim of 'identifying and assessing the prospects and threats'.

Mark Batistich, a member of the Which? Legal team, said: "Whilst it's not exactly clear what credit checking companies such as Schufa intend to do with data obtained from Facebook, it is certainly possible, at least in the UK, that using such information without consent could be in breach of the Data Protection Act, and also the Facebook Terms and Conditions, which set quite stringent guidelines on what can be done with information obtained from that site."

The plans have drawn criticism from the German consumer protection minister Ilse Aigner as well as justice minister, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, who both said the plans went too far.

Statue of Woman ~ Cloisters, Paradise Island

This statue is part of the dramatic Cloisters on Paradise Island. Huntingdon Hartford III, the heir to the A&P supermarket fortune, moved these 12th century cloisters from France to San Diego where they sat in storage, and then to Paradise Island in the Bahamas. His old estate is now the exclusive One & Only Ocean Club where parts of the modern version of the James Bond movie "Casino Royale" were shot. This statue is in the middle of the Cloisters.

Glorious Sunday -- Getting Away From It All

(click to enlarge image)

So I am sitting here on this glorious Sunday in the sun -- working -- programming. I'd like to run away and relax in a remote cottage in a wonderful place. I have a place in mind. Take a look at this remote cottage under the Scottish Highlands. The perfect getaway. The mountains in the background is called the Saddle. The place is bucolic and idyllic. The little white dot is a barely used cottage.

The only discordant note in this picture, is that this Loch Long in Scotland. The loch is incredibly deep. Just over on the next loch is Gare Loch and Faslane -- the home of the British nuclear submarines. They use the loch pictured here to calibrate their torpedos. Under the calm surface of the loch, lurks stealth weapons of destruction loaded with Trident Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles capable of destroying the world.

Looking For Something to Do in Nassau A Week Saturday?

(click for larger image)

I am a member of the Bahamas National Trust. Next Saturday (June 16th), they are having their second anniversary Market at the "Retreat" -- their headquarters on Village Road.

The retreat is an amazing place with a wide variety of tropical plants and trees. It is a botanical garden and an arboretum all in one place.

The market is always a festive place. In the advert above, they profile jams by Monica. (it's actually Monika, and she is a friend of mine). Her cakes are out of this world. It is worth going just for that.

If you are in Nassau, keep the date open.

More 1960's Vintage Clip Art

Here's another couple examples of 1960's vintage clip art (1966 to be exact). These cartoon characters are kind of cute. The one on the right seems to embody the cartoon "style" of the time.

Some Observations About Luka Magnotta

By putting up pictures of Luka Magnotta years ago, this blog has become again the focus attention. Who knew that due to an alignment of the planets that two sickos would come together - Karla Homolka and Luka Magnotta. Even though Magnotta denies any connection with Homolka, he is Facebook friend of the Homolka family.

There are two observations that I have to make. Someone has been harassing me about the Magnotta pictures on this blog. And there are weird requests to send contact information to post stuff on this blog. No one else really cares much about the daily mental meanderings on the Cosmological Cabbage.

It appears that Luka Magnotta is on the lam. If I were the police from Montreal Canada, I would find Karla Homolka to look for Luka Magnotta. And by most accounts on the grapevine, it would either be in Guadeloupe, or close to the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario Canada. The other possible hiding place to look, is the home of a prominent bi-sexual porn producer in Nassau Bahamas.

Let's hope that the Montreal police haven't put Inspector Clouseau on the case.
