Latin Love

The Brazilian government has come up with a helpful web site for some of it's citizens. Apparently getting up close and personal enough with someone to give them a sexually transmitted disease doesn't necessarily mean one is close enough to discuss such things. The government has therefore set up a web site for those who have given the gift that keeps on giving to send an e-mail to their recipient(s). There are even cute graphics, like a guy reclining in his underwear telling a past partner to see a doctor for an std check. We all know how private the Internet is, what a great idea! Here's the link for the site (in Spanish)
and for the story(in English)

Don’t Sweat It

Thorpe Park in Chertsey. England has a new rule for guests to follow while on the rides. Scream all you wish, just don't raise your arms. Riders are required to keep their elbows at their sides or they can be kicked off rides. Repeat offenders face expulsion from the park. Are there safety concerns causing this new rule with such strict enforcement? Actually the problem is B.O., that's right body odor. Mike Vallis, director of the park, says there have been complaints about smelly patrons raising their arms and subjecting fellow riders to their sweaty armpits.
Mr. Vallis also indicated that with high temperatures and such scary rides people sweat more, which made the rule necessary for the comfort of all the park guests. Once again an attempt to protect everyone from everything. I've got an idea, if you are that sensitive stay home and let hardier souls enjoy their day.

Forgotten and Unseen Electronics Part 39

Back in Forgotten and Unseen Electronics Part 26 I showed you a plant that contacts you using Twitter. I have now found one that follows the sun so it can get all the light it needs called Plantbot. It's made by the people at Play Coalition.I think this would probably creep people out when they visit your house.

I’ll Huff And I’ll Puff…

From the BBC children's science show "Bang Goes The Theory...", engineer Jem Stansfield builds himself a giant vortex cannon, and tries to knock down buildings made of straw, wood and bricks...

Impressive, though I'm sure the "Big Bad Wolf" would not have had much of a problem if the third little pig had likewise left out the mortar. Mind you, one of these is just what I need to keep the neighborhood cats out of my garden! cheese

Sounds Like An Urban Legend

A raid on a Kent, Great Brittan butcher shop/slaughter house saved the lives of two illegal aliens. It seems illegals were promised a safe, productive life in Great Brittan but that is not what was happening. Instead they were being murdered and their organs harvested for transplant. The freezers at the slaughter house contained human remains, but according to one policeman, little more than bones were left. Local Parrish Councilor, Des Robinson, was quoted as saying, "We always knew the sausages were something special, but not that special. It rather puts new meaning to 'full of eastern promise'. I doubt everyone will take it that well if it is proved that is what happened to the rest of the remains.

Marijuana Farm to blame for Massive California Fires

According to the Los Angeles Times, the huge wild fires California is experiencing were caused by a cooking fire on a Pot farm.

I've heard people refer to smoking pot as "burning mad trees", but I think this takes that a little too literally.
