Totally Brainwashed Hot Links

Sunday, 8 October 2017

The Hickory Horned Devil is the largest caterpillar in North America (except for this one).

Watch this first.
Now watch that next [via].

Ondes Martenot was a precursor to the Ondioline which was a precursor to the Moog synthesizer.

Early electronic music pioneer Jean-Jacques Perrey ‎released an EP  entitled “Mister Ondioline” in 1960.
1. Parade Des Soldats De Bois – 0:00.
2. La Gavotte Des Vers Luisants – 3:04.
3. Le Siffleur Et Son Chien – 5:42.
4. Nola – 8:01.

Here’s my favorite version of “Nola.” Jonathan Edwards was brilliant.

It holds the record for the smallest brain-to-body weight ratio of all vertebrates, and the latin name of Acanthonus Armatus translates into “Bony-Eared Ass Fish” according to this site. (Any chance that some wag tunneled under the fact-checkers at Wikipedia? Nope. Never happens.) On the other hand, the Bony-Eared Ass Fish is real.

To make matters worse, Stolangtoft Hall is a nursing home…

Our Patio Rocks Harder Than Yours.

Listening to Classic Soul Instrumentals, waiting for friends to show up, and I spotted this. It’s been sitting in the WTF-To-Do-With-This-Baboso file for a while, so might as well post it.

Cliffside Path, China

Tuesday, 30 May 2017

As wonderful as Chinese tea is, it is definitely not something you’d closely associate with exhilaration, adrenaline and the fear of death. Mt. Huashan in China, however, manages to bring all of these things together by featuring a death-defying cliff-side mountain climb that brings daring visitors to a tea house 2,160 m (7,087 ft) up on the mountain’s southern peak.

Mt. Huashan has been a place of religious importance since at least the 2nd century BCE, when a Daoist temple was established at its base. Since then, pilgrims, monks and nuns have inhabited the mountain and the surrounding area. A network of dangerous and precipitous trails allows them to access the mountain’s five summits, each of which has a religious structure like the tea house on the southern summit. Together, these five summits form the points of a flower shape.

I don’t do heights very well – I get a visceral reaction when I’m too close to the edge – and this insane video spooked me just by watching it.

This disturbs me.

Medieval WTF

medeval-wtf

A long, long time ago this painting made complete sense.

There’s a wood-fired forge, anvils, metal working tools, a peacock, a gryphon(?!) a deer and a bigass possum watching a naked man without genitalia cringe as a woman takes an axe to a parrot while the wind is blowing.

It’s an illustration from a French manuscript entitled The Personification of Nature Making Birds, Animals and People [ca. 1405].

Okay, so Mother Nature had already finished creating The BirdsThe Animals and at least one of The People, but then she realized that the poor guy needed a pecker. If anyone else has a better analysis, post it, because I’m done here.
