You all know of my hatred for the world's biggest, longest, most, kind of records. First up we have the longest doormat in the world - 330 feet. Pointless since few have an outdoor walkway or an indoor hallway that is that long. Unless you want to just put it on a roller and cut off lengths as they get dirty. Pointless.
Then we come to this record for sword swallowing. When will THIS skill ever be useful to human civilization? Maybe if the swallower (who really doesn't SWALLOW anything because I believe that to technically be considered a SWALLOW, something has to go all the way down. Leaving the hilt of the sword outside of your mouth doesn't count. Now if you could swallow the sword and pull the entire thing out your butt, then you got my interest. Until then - nick a part of your esophagus and die.
Shouldn't the world's shortest STREET be something you can DRIVE on. Looks like a SIDEWALK to me between two actual steets.
Buddy, you didn't win the ribbons so why are you wearing them? Basically all you did was purchase and brush a cat. I do that everyday but even I have more of a life than to consider that professional photographer worthy as an achievement. You have three ribbons also. Why can we see only TWO clearly. Was that one hidden behind the cat only for participation? And if so, why even bring it out in the first place?
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.
