A look at 7,000 years of religious development (NYT reg req'd), through various stages, in the Oaxaca Valley.

Pic of the day is a rather special dragon, by Marie Holland, an artist particularly skilled in non-Potatoshop coloring, as you can see. [Edit: Yerf is temporarily unavailable for a day or two. You can, meanwhile, find the image here instead]

A postcard depicting Rabbits of the Wild West.. and a piece depicting lapine millinery.. or is it? ^_^

When I visit Japan someday, I'm going to have to look into this hotel. ^_^ (It'd have to be the Hello Kitty room for me)

Amongst the many, many items in Sanrio's range: Badtz Maru condoms.

Of geek interest, an interesting article on the analysis of (Windows, particularly) worms by use of compression, grouping those results together, and determining a new variant's nature based on its proximity to those results. Presumably a similar technique could be applied to annelids and nematodes also.

Quite neat. Option Wireless has announced their GlobeTrotter PC Card, enabling a laptop user to connect to any GPRS network anywhere in the world, being a quad-band device, as well as any 802.11b/g WiFi network.

A bit of a nuisance.. I recently had need of the camcorder's battery, only to find it had, like unrequited love, perished at the hands of time. (Would you guess that whilst I thoroughly enjoyed chemistry lab practicals - at leastm those not involving determining melting point by inspection of a tiny sample in a very thin glass tube being gently heated up - writing them up in formulaic, staid prose was far more of a chore?) Mercifully, despite being of 1995 vintage (that's the year after Baird's initial forays into television), replacements were to be found all over the web, even if half the retailers were fronts for the same store. And not at exactly the same prices, either. So, an unwanted expense, but it'll mean a 2100mAh battery instead of the original 1200mAh block.

If "fruitality" were a word, what would it mean?

Quote for the day, from the current DNRC newsletter: "Each one of you has so much animal magnetism that woodland creatures stick to your body when you hike through the forest."
If "fruitality" were a word, what would it mean?

It'd be one of the 'special' fatalities in Mortal Combat, (where the enemy would turn into fruit), obviously.
Ooh.. Iron Chef meets Mortal Kombat. I need to write this. ^_^
I was not expecting a gargantuan Texas/Alaskan-sized bunny and that was indeed a bit of a double-taker.

I do like that little bunny/schoolgirl optical illusion. It's oddly intriguing for than what it is.

*laugh* Hello Kitty room. How cute.

I saw those Badtz Maru condoms about 4 years ago. To go with Hello Kitty vibrator and lifesize Rei doll.

Shame about the camcorder battery. It's always a nuisiance replacing that kind of thing. I had to search around and eventually call to get an Americanized powerpack for some 5.1s. And they didn't even send the right ones, but they seem to work fine for their purpose.

Fruitality: The process of being fruit.
Or one could live in a fruitalitarian state.
I admit, I actually only saw the bunnies at first, but Rafiki was whispering to me, and I then followed some of the hats downwards.. ^_^ I'd love to have that as a poster.

You have power-assisted Levi's? Oy, such progress!

That would be a banana republic, ne?
It would certainly go over well in a café. Your customers would be there for ages trying to see one layer at a time.

..."power-assisted Levi's"...

*smacks forehead* Oh dear... :D

"That would be a banana republic, ne?"

LOL! Tou---ché, sir! Tou-ché. XD
If "fruitality" were a word, what would it mean?

Some sort of sex/relationship/kink thing? Hetero anyway.

Mmm, batteries. Always annoying.

Phooey~ dragon link not working.
Still, at least the battery's still available - I'd pretty much assumed there'd be no chance of finding a replacement for it now, given its age and the bajillion varieties. Once things improve, I'll prolly pick up a spare, as my old spare's (also NiCd) all but certain to be in a similar condition now, as it's not seen use or a charger in about a year and a half. 'Course, what I really want is a nice 3-CCD camera with a good optical zoom, white balance and exposure controls, and high quality audio recording with an external set of inputs. ^_^ (Even so, this one still works fine! It'd be great as a secondary camera when recording a gig)

Ack! Yes, it seems Yerf suffered a drive failure soon afterwards (egad, I do seem to have a certain touch with my links..), so it'll be down for a day or two. I've put said picture up here in the meantime.
Wow. That was done.. in non-photoshop? ::peers at it:: ...if s/he did it by hand, that's amazing. And like... Wow.
The "Hello Kitty" heads on the couch kind of disturb me. I'm sure that wasn't the effect they were looking for.
fascinating, thanks...... wanna be friends?
