Mano de Dios

Mano_de_dios Kudu Dung Spitting , or 'Bokdrol Spoeg' as it is known locally by the Afrikaans community, is indeed a real sport. There are even World Championships held every year. As far as it is known, or anyone will admit, the formal version of the sport has existed since 1994. It is unknown when the first informal game actually took place, but it is my guess that large quantities of alcohol were involved

First person in a photograph

Daguerre In 1838, a man made history by having his boots polished. He was the only thing standing still when Louis Daguerre took a photograph of a busy Parisian street. Because the film was exposed for 10 minutes, the rest of the traffic blurred into nothing — and the anonymous man became the first person ever to appear in a photograph

I was sleepin' like a rat

Dylan_portrait When I heard something jerkin'.
There stood Rita
Lookin' just like Tony Perkins
She said, "Would you like to take a shower?
I'll show you up to the door."
I said, "Oh, no! no!
I've been through this before."
I knew I had to split
But I didn't know how,
When she said,
"Would you like to take that shower, now?"

Film Dialogue in Dylan’s Lyrics. References to particular films and fragments of film dialogue are scattered throughout the lyrics of Bob Dylan’s songs, particularly in the 1985 album Empire Burlesque. I have attempted to compile these snatches from the songs and cite the original film dialogue, although some of the quotes may be coincidental rather than deliberate, using phrases that have passed into common usage

2 cars in one

Russian-born inventor Shalom Bloch built a two-sided car, by combining two cars so that they have two fronts. Now he can drive it either way. One side has an automatic transmission, the other a stick shift. The interviewer asks him: Why do you need to switch sits, instead of putting it in reverse? He answers: Now you don’t need to use reverse at all.

The biggest danger of driving this car (in Israel) is the possibility of accidents, due to curious drivers. The project to create this hybrid car took three months to complete. If he runs out of gas in one side, he can switch to the other & keep driving. (Thank you, Dafna!)

This is not the only 2-sided cars. There’s a Japanese version too.

Gun Porn

Gun_porn This is my rifle.
There are many like it but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life.
I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless.
Without my rifle I am useless. I must fire my rifle true.
I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me.
I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will.
Before God I swear this creed: my rifle and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of my enemy, we are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace.
