Obsession I can Appreciate

Dutch engineer/artist Theo Jansen is known for his Strandbeests, giant kinetic sculptures that move along the beach on their own, powered only by the wind.

Now that is one of the coolest things I have ever seen.   Looks like a living fossil.

Lack of Impulse Control is a Symptom

A 29 year old suicidal male stole an airplane and used it for a joy flight before he crashed it and died. 










This is Why

BASEL, SWITZERLAND—According to a Live Science report, a wad of 2,000-year-old papyrus from the collections of the University of Basel has been restored and translated, revealing a previously unknown composition. An examination of the papyrus with ultraviolet and infrared light revealed the sheets may have been stuck together, possibly to be reused as a bookbinding. Once a restorer separated the wad into individual sheets, the Greek text could be read. Ancient historian Sabine Huebner explained the papyrus bears a medical text that may have been composed by the Roman physician Galen, who lived from A.D. 130 to 210. The text may also comprise a commentary on Galen's work, describing a phenomenon he called “hysterical apnea.” Women afflicted with this so-called condition did not suffer from a “wandering womb,” as was thought by other physicians of the day, Galen is known to have argued, but from “hysterical suffocation,” brought on by a lack of intercourse. “
Because the advice I now receive from doctors is only slightly less self-serving.

I am at the point in the summer where I can't sleep at night and my ears start popping or ringing when the AC flips on.

Please do not use a humidifier when you are lying down.  Your breathing and waking mechanisms are impaired.

I find saline swabs up the nose for a couple minutes helps a lot.

Faceless Phrenology

Surely multiple dental cavities, likely wisdom teeth eruption, probable nasal infection, obvious vitamin d deficiency, and definitely a sugar based diet.

He's metabolically debilitated and apparently it's making him cranky.

State of the Insanity

Tucson’s First Rage Room Is Now OPEN!
Wanna smash something? Tucson’s first and only rage room, The Breaking Point, is now open for business.  Customers to the Breaking Point can schedule time inside a room filled with smashable items like televisions, kitchen appliances, bottles, and anything else you can think of to destroy.
I have been too out of it.   I should have known this was a real thing now.  If it's here, it's everywhere.

I am just gonna suggest these tattooed people would be better off spending their money on dentistry.

Incel Memes Aren’t a Joke
One meme that clearly has taken hold in incel communities is “millimeters of bone,” in which side-by-side photos of similar-looking men run alongside the caption “The difference between Chad and non-Chad (incel) is literally a few millimeters of bone.”
In incel jargon, a Chad is a strong, well-liked, testosterone-loaded man who has sex with a disproportionate number of women. Incels resent women for choosing to sleep with Chads rather than non-Chads like themselves. Chins and jaws, the most enhanced facial features in the millimeters of bone meme, are particular obsessions of many incel communities, as members believe women are biologically drawn to men with prominent ones, while guys with weak chins and slight overbites are doomed to lives of solitude.


Yes, you got the location right.  Many white people have underdeveloped lower jaws.  But your lack of social success is not about bone, it's the oropharyngeal microbial activity and nerve dysfunction that causes your problems, boys...
Turns you into whiners.
