My friend from Hungary said there is a belief that you should not eat bird of any kind (chicken or turkey) on Christmas to New Years, but instead you should eat pig. A bird will fly away with your luck, but a pig with its snout will find its way to luck for you. During the beginning of this year I gave her one of those LED pig key chain flashlights, and she very much enjoyed it! Thanks Neatorama!

I suppose this is useful for people who are in complete denial that they are nearsighted but are able to fake their way though recognizing blurry letter shapes.

This is as logical is digging a pot hole in your parking lot, and expecting people to pay whenever they accidently drive into it. But to play devil's advocate here, leaving a trail of how many footstep? How oblivious can you be to take multiple steps before you realized you've stepped in a basin of peanut butter?

My sister bought a National Trust membership when she visited in the couple last years. The only problem I can see possible issues with the border customs regarding having had visited a farm, but since this is a well recognized operation they probably take that into concern.

The word Samurai means "To Serve", and lives by a code of rules, where a ninja is a mostly freelance operative who does anything to get the job done.

I've watched a woman display combat fan techniques. It's a got a good amount of weight to it considering the metal strips in it, and some in the past have had blades in them. When the fan is closed, it can be used as a blunt lunging weapon, but when opened up, it makes quite the unexpected sound which can be used in distract the opponent as well as an aid to block you opponent's field of view.

It doesn't surprise me how uncomfortable people are with the idea that such a concept can exist. There's a lot going on with the unconscious processes of the brain, and I don't really think that people want to conceder an uncontrollable "off switch". There are various habits of animals which make instinctual acts, and example would be fish, who would eat their own young in order to protect them, and such a thing is difficult thing to understand and rationalize logically.

One day, I was listening to a girl who was with friends the previous night and accepted some psychedelic drug from a friend without even knowing which one it was (I told her that was stupid, and she agreed). While experiencing the effects of it she felt like she could fly, and considering that she lived in an apartment, as a precaution she died a string around her ankle and the other end to the leg of her bed. She woke up on her floor, laying flat facing the balcony door. There are things that go on in our heads that we aren't readily aware of.

All this hate towards steampunk & furry culture is giving me an idea for my next Halloween costume. I better get started on flushing out this Mecha-Bear idea.

NZ is a great place to vacation since tourism is a large part of their economy, of course that is if you have the money for it and don't mind a 14 hour flight (on average). Best place to see Kiwi is The Rainbow Springs Kiwi Encounter. During the tour after showing you the hatching/incubation labs, they have a dim lit room where you can lean over the side and watch them run around and have a snack the keepers put out for them. It's an impressive operation they have going in my opinion.

@porcupine

Pascal's Wager huh? Yeah, I've heard that a few times. The problem is, how do you know you have chose the right religion? What if you die, and find yourself standing in front of Satan and he says to you, "I'm so sorry, the Jews were right". There are hundreds of thousands of religions in the world are out there, so how do you know you have chosen the right one? You don't need religion to live a life as a good person, human rights and the justice system trump whatever religion has tried to accomplish.

Oh absolutely, in special situations surgery is required, but most of it is no more then a fad like the craze when caesarian births were popular. Just saying, don't slice off a piece of your son unless necessary.

The vision diet reminds me of my graphic design days. When putting together a poster/advertisement with a photograph of food, you want to remove as much blue(cyan) from it as possible. Pyschologicly, blue is the least appetising colour.

I remember a similar story about how a couple of these signs were left on 3 days after the construction was finished yet they still said "construction ahead". Apparently the password was written above the monitor with a sharpy. He changed to two signs to say "Klatu Verata Nicto", and "UFO Landing Area". A day later they were taken away finaly. There's a time and a place for Jackassery, it's up to you to figure out when that is.

I knew all of these facts but the part about the mountain, I don't know if I overlooked it at the Darwin exhibit when it was at the Royal Ontario Museum if it was there 6 or 7 months ago. I would also like to add that Herbert Spencer is a douche. They even had the long tongued moth seen bellow.
