Special Kitty Adoption.

Reblogged from Spectacular Nature in the World :

A teeny little tuxedo kitty found a new mom, a big Siberian husky who looked after and nursed her as her own. Mushu the kitty was born to a stray cat and later rescued by her human when she was only 8 weeks old. They had a dog named Luna who accepted Mushu as soon as she laid eye on the poor little tux. The love is reciprocal. Mushu chose Luna to be her surrogate mom and they have been inseparable ever since. Video of the two interacting: http://youtu.be/I5H0xbv3T30

Outdated,

discarded,

once as orange as a pumpkin,

now more a cantaloupe—speckled one, at that.

Wind battered and dust rusted,

once showroom shiny,

now no one’s dream.

But I found you—you with your boy toy grill,

a faded smile in the fading light.

I found you alone by the side of the road,

and it was love at first blight.

Write a comment or a question: Kitsch – kaputt – Muesli – Sauerkraut – Alpenglow – kaffeklatsching – Edelweiss – Bratwurst – Gummibear – Nixe – Weltschmerz – Glockenspiel – Rollmops – Wanderlust – Lust – Angst – U-boat – zigzag – Schweinehund – Kinderfeindlichkeit – Landflucht – verboten –

Time is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future, and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them.Time has long been a major subject of study in religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a manner applicable to all fields without circularity has consistently eluded scholars. Nevertheless, diverse fields such as business, industry, sports, the sciences, music, dance, and the live theater all incorporate some notion of time into their respective measuring systems. Some simple, relatively uncontroversial definitions of time include “time is what clocks measure”and “time is what keeps everything from happening at once…

Time!

Divided in hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds… yet counts differently to each one of us.

This is the first of a series of posts with my view of time featuring timepieces with my watercolors.

Facial Recognition Software: Beware!


From

Just posted on CNET: Facebook is about to be charged with illegal use of facial recognition technology in Germany, its relationship to TrapWire and data brokers, and why efforts to protect individual privacy may be too little too late.

Why you should be worried about facial-recognition technology

Germany has issued an ultimatum to Facebook over privacy violations. Law enforcement is interested in this sort of technology, as well. It’s time for you to pay attention to what they’re doing…

Can You Believe These Are Just Flat?


Brought to my attention by Ricki, my number one fan and friend, from the Mighty Optical Illusions site.

Check out these 3D pencil drawings I just stumbled upon! They were done by a Chilean artist who calls himself “Fredo”. He is “just” an ordinary 17-year-old prodigy, who draws objects that look like they’re about to jump off the page! Just by looking at his art, can you differentiate what’s real and what’s not? It takes Fredo anywhere from just 30 minutes, to as much as few months to create a single piece! Though there is no doubt he has been inspired by artists, such as M.C. Escher, Fredo’s art definitely has a modern twist. Some of his drawings feature creepy goblins holding physical objects like a lighter or reaching out of the page for a soda can!

Just one of their pictures:

Sven hurriedly dressed and told his mistress to take his shoes outside and rub them in the grass and dirt.
He put on his shoes and drove home.
- Where have you been? Lena asked demanded.
- I can’t lie to you,’ Sven replied
- I’m having an affair with my secretary and we had sex all afternoon.’
Lena looked down at his shoes and said:
-You lying bastard! You’ve been playing golf!’

The Forever Trees of the First Forest


There’s a tree, some say, at the heart of all the worlds. Its roots wind down into the ashes of the past and its branches reach into future skies. At the centre of a grove at the heart of the first of all forests, this titanic world tree binds the essences of That-Which-Was, That-Which-Is and That-Which-Will-Be together. There are many names for this tree, including Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life and the lotus of Meru. Legends say that mankind was born amid the Forever Trees of the First Forest. Here humanity dwelt for untold aeons until some dark sin or distant shame exiled them from the shade of the great world tree. Perhaps this explains why forests have provided the setting for some of the most enchanting tales in world literature and mythology, from the perilous woods of medieval Romance and the fairy-haunted glades of Shakespeare and Yeats to the talking trees of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and the archetypal wilderness of Robert Holdstock’s Mythago sequence. However, Holdstock’s mythagos – living, breathing ‘images of myth’ who dwell in Ryhope Wood, a primeval tract of virgin forest, and other ancient woodlands around the world – are anything but harmless. Even Tolkien, despite his oft-mentioned Green ideology, was famously ambiguous about trees – as illustrated by the actions of Old Man Willow in the Old Forest. This illustrates an equally important point about the way forests are portrayed in mythology. Just as there are shadows in the hearts of men, nature too has its terrors, and the sum of all of them becomes the Dark Wood – the dread within each forest’s core. In folklore there were said to be many ways through the forest – the narrow road beset with thorns and briars that was the path to righteousness; the broad, leavened road that was the path to wickedness; and the bonny, winding road that was the path to fairyland. For this reason, among many others, caution was always advised for those who travelled the deep woods.

In early pagan religions, trees were held sacred; forest groves were perceived as the dwelling place of gods, goddesses and a wide variety of nature spirits. A staunchly animist outlook with a strong reverence for trees and the holiness of nature was particularly entrenched among the peoples in the far north of Europe and in the British Isles. It is therefore not surprising that when the Christian priests of the Dark Ages waged war against older beliefs, these were two of the areas where they focused their efforts, cutting down sacred trees and putting whole groves of woodland to the torch. The Celtic tribes of Britain and Ireland assigned each type of tree magical properties, and the twigs from the tops of the trees were prized by magicians, warriors and healers. Each letter in the Celtic ogham alphabet stood for a tree and its magical associations, while trees were a richly poetic presence in Celtic myths. The Green Man, who may be an incarnation of the horned Celtic forest god Cernunnos, is an architectural motif found carved into the wood and stone of pagan temples and graves across Europe, masked with leaves or disgorging foliage from his mouth. Intriguingly, the stylised Green Man head became incorporated into Christian architecture throughout medieval churches, perhaps because it became linked to Christian resurrection iconography through its association with the seasonal cycle of mythic rebirth and regeneration. Incidentally, although they are much rarer, examples of a primitive female form – the so-called Green Woman – giving birth to a spray of vegetation also exist in some churches, mainly in Ireland, where they are known by the name Sheela-na-gig.
