How The Sun Sees You?

This one is both fascinating and, well, a little creepy too. Okay, we hear all the time about how ultraviolet radiation from the sun can damage our skin, right? But did you know that an ultraviolet camera can be used to reveal the hidden freckles and splotches the sun has already left on your skin? Well, take a look as videographer Thomas Leveritt shocks and amazes a bunch of people by revealing what the sun has done to them!

A Little Tuesday Wisdom…

I don’t have a lot of words for you today my friends. My need for air conditioning to fight the heat has just aggravated my arthritis so much, and I’m afraid my back just can’t handle more than a few minutes hunched over my keyboard.

But I do want to share this very nice video my friend Rosie posted on Facebook, and this collection of random “reflections” from around the net…

A War On Money And Jobs

Oh The Humanity!

You know, we humans have a way of making these cute, philosophical sounding, “proclamations” without really thinking them through. For example, take this little image I saw on Facebook the other day…

Perception (small)

Perception – Sticks and Stones…

Last night I watched the 2nd episode from the 3rd season of another show that really excites and engages me – TNT’s Perception. I wrote about it a year ago as well (in a post that also went almost completely unnoticed) and its longevity has surprised me even more that of Continuum. And yet here I am, writing about it again. Hell, maybe you do have to be crazy to get it, but there’s apparently crazy enough to go around!

The Best Revenge Story Ever (small)

A Little Lesson In Manners…

I couldn’t help laughing when my daughter-in-law shared this on Facebook this morning. I felt a little guilty afterwards because I can’t imagine myself doing what this guy did. On the other hand, the kid was being a monstrous little shit…

Salt (small)

Salt!

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.
