Loli-Goth

Lolita_goth El Señor Nabokov on French Television with Spanish subtitles. (From Achtung Baby!)

How to Be a Gothic Lolita. Gothic Lolita or "GothLoli" (ゴスロリ, gosurori) is a subcategory of the Lolita fashion, a street fashion among Japanese female teenagers

Christopher Plummer as Nabokov lecturing on Kafka’s Metamorphosis (1989)

Forget Lolita - let's hear it for lepidoptery

The tale: an ape in a zoo is taught how to draw. The first thing it draws is the bars of its cage. I've heard this story a couple of times (often in connection with Vladimir Nabokov), but can't find any information about the original experiment. Did this actually happen? Is it just a fable? Did Nabokov get Punk'd? Who was this ape and where can I find out more?

Human curiosity

Black_cube Simple extra handle added to a shovel makes it almost fun to dig. I came up with this idea while digging a 100 foot long, 2 foot deep drainage trench and it works so well that I wanted to put it on my webpage. On the web I find a SNOW shovel for sale that has an added handle, but could not find any reference to using a second handle with a regular dirt-digging type shovel
