Yes, thank goodness for idiots -- they're the lifeblood of the internet. just as much as cats.

I find it fascinating that people keep finding old pictures or drawings where they look so similar to the people from long ago in the pictures.

Why are cats scared of cucumbers.

I can't imagine being a snake wrangler, or having snakes as pets and always having to be on guard for one of them biting you.

Who knows, the guy in the painting might even be the modern guy's ancestor.

I suspect cats have an inborn fear of snakes (many animals do, including humans and elephants), and at first glance anything vaguely snake-like in shape triggers a fleeing reaction.

That place actually looks like a lab to me. I assume people there are trained to handle them (she wasn't being particularly careful, so that may be a non-venomous species). People who keep them as "pets" are fools, especially the dangerous ones.

Do you know what else, they had a Zeppelin station built on top of the Empire State building, there was an anchor point and it was expected to utilize that commercially until the Hindenburg

The London sewage pumping station is crazy... and very beautiful.

Reaganite: Of course they suck -- they were a form of ad.

If the Zeppelin station plan had gone through and airship "docks" at the tops of skyscrapers were common today, I suppose the 9/ll terrorists might have used hijacked airships. They could turn those things into flying bombs, with a match in the right place.

Ricko: Apes can be very appealing. Their emotions, and the ways they express them, are so obviously like ours.

Darrell: It's a veritable poo palace. They made almost everything ornate in those days (unless it was for poor people).
