I have always been fascinated by the fact that our radio and TV broadcasts are continuing to leave earth and travel far and wide into the universe. I can imagine some civilization out there finding them and creating a device to transmit then to their populace. Like on 'Galaxy Quest' where the Thermians mistake a fictitious 'Star Trek' like show for 'historical documents'. After watching a full diet of our television I now understand why alien species would never want to come here or when they do that they only appear to hillbillies living near some swamp in Arkansas. I wouldn't have anything to do with us hairless apes either. You just know anything they showed us, we would use against them. If they tasted like chicken we would Kentucky Fry their asses so quick they would have no time to even see the side dishes prepared. Thanks to the 'Daily What' for this image. As usual click to enlarge.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
