Omniscient Sugar Rush!

First up, the obligatory how-stupid-are these-theists-anyway post, featuring a Christian from Libreville, Gabon who believed what his Bible told him:
"He told churchgoers he'd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus. He walked into the water, which soon passed over his head and he never came back."
Great candidate for a Darwin award, I'd say.

Next, a terrific idea for all you guys and girls out there who're tired of smelling like godsdamned flowers, A Picnic in Arkham features perfumes redolent of the Elder Gods.

The Cthulu secnt sounds interesting, but my favourite(in case Warren is thinking of getting me a birthday present in a few months) is:
Listen to this:
"It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train – a shapeless congerie of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter."
An amorphous, radiant, incandescent scent. Ever changing, protoplasmic and primordial: white amber, green coconut meat, iris, palmarosa, Chinese peony, lime, water lily, snowdrop, muguet, lemongrass, osmanthus, wisteria, glassy musk, and hinoki.
Yup.Just about my speed.

Lastly, because I can, a link to a woman describing herself as 'A Republican's Worst Nightmare', who synchronistically takes up the theme of my previous post, and hammers away on the subject of parthenogenesis .

Go for it, Morgaine!

Not That Different

From The Economist comes this article to which I crowingly,and not altogether seriously, now refer as backing for my long-held claim that males are the mutations of the species.

Can we have this in blinking neon lights now?
Oh well:
Female is the default brain setting

I Know.
