Just a few things that caught my eye in today’s emails…
Looking for a special travel destination, eh? Somewhere off the beaten path you say? Well, here are just a few suggestions I’ve sampled from 22 Astonishing Places That Are Hard to Believe Really Exist on The Mind Unleashed…

Call me crazy (again), but I’ve always been fascinated by what I see as repeating patterns in the appearance of human faces. You know, the things about a given face that reminds you of another face you’ve seen before. I can’t begin to count the number of times I’ve seen people that looked so much like someone I knew that I’d swear they had to be related. Hell, I even had a coworker curse me out once for ignoring her when she said hello to ‘me’ at the bank – when I’d never even been to that bank! To this day, I’m not sure if she believed it wasn’t really me. I do know that I’m glad my ‘doppelgänger’ wasn’t there to rob the place. I might still be in jail if she’d been called as a witness!
Anyway, I’ve often wondered if anyone has ever been crazy enough to try to prove that such ‘human templates’ actually exist. Well, photographer François Brunelle has made one hell of an effort to do just that!

Salt. A most common, and darned near ubiquitous mineral that barely deserves notice, right? Well, as cheap and accessible as salt appears to be, it is actually one of the most important substances known to man. In fact, it could be argued that human civilization as we know it owes its very existence to this seemingly unimportant substance!
I’ve wanted to do a post on salt for some time now, after seeing several television documentaries on the uses and production of it a while back. But I held off, frankly, because the subject is just so damned big! Well, I was feeling energized enough when I woke up this morning (which most definitely has NOT lasted) to finally give it a go.
And I hope these will help you do just that!
