Cartoon Fun

This is great! This guy teaching English to kids in Japan uses a comic strip with blanked out word bubbles as a teaching aid. The kids fill in the bubbles. Hilarity insues...

Check it out!

Guinness is Good for You!

It looks like the old advertising slogan might actually be true. Not that I'm shocked . I have long been of the opinion that a pint now and then in good company can be tonic for the soul. It takes no great leap of faith to believe that a pint a day might also be a benefit to ones health.

Drink to your health!

If you believe they put a man on the moon...

For the love of God...

Will some one please tell me if this is TRUE!!!

On the other hand, maybe I'd rather not know the truth... if it's a lie, I might just prefer to fall for it. Andy would have wanted it that way.

Chronic Cryonic

I'm fascinated by people who are clearly crazy, but in creative ways. That's why today's obsession is the Reverend Daniel Robert Izzo and his amazing patent for the Resurrection Burial Tomb. (Thanks to the very cool Godlorica blog for the link).

Rev. Dan Izzo of Syracuse, NY is many things. An inventor, a theologian, a mayoral candidate for the "Right to Life" party in Syracuse, a landlord, and a proponent of cryogenics. And probably completely nuts.

Abstract from the patent application:
"A Resurrection Burial Tomb includes a means to preserve and revive Human Beings and provide power and power systems for the same, comprising of a container of preservation means, holding the suspended dead person's body and connected to electrical and energy apparatus systems contained in the Resurrection tomb and robotic machine workers that help maintain and work to revive the suspended Huamn Being; wherein the process provides power and security from death to living Human Beings being useful and novel, producing a less savage empowered child culture and machine parents."

It seems to involve the preservation tomb itself, artificial lungs and heart, a portable nuclear power generator, a "muscle robot", somehow converting the bones of the deceased into a computer, and a wide variety of other wild concepts all wrapped up into one. While impossible to follow, his application is extremely detailed and obviously took a great deal of time and thought to create. It even includes 64 pages of illustrations, many of them hand drawn. I believe that the underlying motivation behind the concept is the Christian idea that when the end times are upon us, the those of us who have passed on will be resurrected in their original bodies. Rev. Izzo asks the fairly reasonable question "What if our bodies are cremated, or too deteriorated to come back to?" Being a man of action, he has set out to find a solution. An incredibly creepy solution involving creating the equivalent of cyborg zombies. But you can't say it isn't a creative solution.
