Home Sweet Closet

So this 58 year old homeless woman in Japan got creative as hell. One day while a man left for work and happened to forget to lock his door, she snuck in and set up residency in his closet! She lived there for a frickin' year!!! She only got caught once he noticed that food was disappearing from the kitchen. Sounds like she got a bit too comfortable, and careless. If only she hadn't taken so much food, this could've gone on longer!

The moral of this story is, believe your kids when they say there's something in the closet. There really may be!

Hey, Something Else for Us to Destroy!

We "civilized" folk sure do like to ruin things for everyone else, don't we? It is estimated that there are some 100, as yet, undiscovered tribes worldwide. Of course, when one is discovered, we sure gotta get all up in their faces about it. This just happened in Brazil. An undiscovered tribe was just minding it's own business and, CLICK, we had to photograph it, scare the bejezus out of them, then post it all over the internet.
Yes, I am guilty, I am posting it also. I, however, am doing so in order to scream ... "Just leave well enough alone!" Seems to me that the world would be a better place if we had all just decided to stay in little villages and not dominate the planet. I mean, sure there would be murder and destruction on a small scale, but the planet over all would be better off. Disease wouldn't be running rampant all over the place if we were in isolated groups. Some would die off ... a "thinning of the herd", if you will ... but that's the natural order of things. Nature's own population control.
So, when we (the "civilized") run into those still living primally, we adulterate it. Here's the link to the article about the discovered tribe. Yes, the article promotes the protection of this and other tribes, but a picture is worth a thousand words, and what this photo tells me is that we are some scary muthas!!

Just a Theory, Mind You

I'm going to presume that most everyone has heard about what happened to Val Thomas. Just in case you've been living under a rock, the quick version is that she was brain dead for almost 18 hours, rigor mortis had set in, and then she woke up.

Now, I'm not wanting to step on the toes of anyone who may be of a particular monotheistic faith that involves a certain belief about a man who supposedly rose from the dead, but, so did this woman. SO, either it's a possibility that this is what happened to that particular man, perfectly possible ... now that we've seen it. OR, this woman is the second coming of said man and you should flock to her post haste. Seeing as how she is female, I'm certain this won't happen any time soon.

All this proves to me is that, when it's your time, it's your time. When it's not, it's not. Although she's giving all sorts of credit to "God". My question to her is, why you? Why not some poor, innocent, abused child who hasn't been on the planet for 59 years? I'm not saying I wish she were still dead, I'm just saying that it's more than likely scientifically expainable. Just like with that other dude some 2000 ish years ago.

Ramblings of a Mad Woman

Things have been crazy lately. I wouldn't even know where to begin, so I'll just make a numbered list. No particular order BTW.

1) WTF is up in Myanmar? As "The Manager" so eloquently put it ... "The Junta are Puntas!" And now they must brace themselves for the possibility of yet one more storm, when they haven't even begun to recover from the last.

2) China. The population is bulging and as they build to keep up ... BAM! They didn't build it right. Now, I'm not all too familiar with China and it's fault lines. The only area I know much about in Asia is Japan ... it's used to getting tons of quakes. The buildings there are built in such a way as to allow the buildings to move with the Earth. If you are asleep, especially on a futon, it may feel like you are in a water bed.
If China gets many quakes (I'll do some research), and they built wrong ... Maybe they don't get many quakes and I'm totally off base. Still, it's devastating what's going on there.

3) My 20 year old cat died. Maybe it didn't affect the rest of the planet, but it threw me for a loop. I had become so accustomed to her always being present that now I'm in shock. I had dubbed her "The Immortal" ... she was going strong right up until the end. We should all be so lucky! RIP Miss Thursday, see ya on the other side! And my personal advice to anyone wanting to know the secret to feline longevity ... processed cheeses and pepperoni ... musta been all the preservatives ...

4) I can't believe that stupid Parvati won Survivor! I must admit, I am a Survivor junkie ... since season one! My dream ... to be on Survivor. Yup, I confess. But fucking Parvati?? WTF?!?!?! It soooo should've been Amanda!

5) I hate American Idol. That's all I have to say on that one.

6) Evidently, if you are Republican ... you have your own line of clothing!!!

7) I'm just curious, how far is too far when it comes to chimera? I'm not really sure how I feel about it, but I'm curious as to how others feel about it. I'm sure it would be a fun discussion over several shots of tequila! Cheers!!

Baby Factory

The planet is overpopulated. No question about it. So when something like this happens it really pisses me off. It's one thing to want a child ... but to want a frickin' nation? I'm sure I will piss some off when I say, "I hope Michelle Duggar miscarries!" Not to mention getting an infection rendering her sterile. Fucking breeders.
