Quirk & Dirt

It’s been one of those days. One of those – I’m tired as hell, goofy, and have the attention span of a – oh wait…look what I found –

This has got to be one of the quirkiest, funniest things I have seen in a long time. I showed my 15 year old daughter. I can now randomly whisper Shia LaBeouf to her and watch her giggle and shudder all at once. It’s hilarious, trust me.

That was quirk, now on to dirt…

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg (Source: Goodreads – this place serious has it all).

Ancient 2,400-year-old gold bongs discovered in Russia http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/archaeology/archaeologists-discover-2400yearold-gold-bongs-in-russia-10285876.html

LOL – wut? Yes, folks, you read that correctly. Apparently, these ancient gold vessels have a dark residue that is indeed opium and cannabis. A quote from the article – “Analysis on a sticky black residue in the golden cups revealed the objects were used to hold a concoction of opium and cannabis, which mirror the writings of Greek historian Herodotus, who said: “Scythians used a plant to produce smoke that no Grecian vapour-bath can surpass which made them shout aloud.””

Indeed, now we know why the smoke was unsurpassed.
