Well here is something not at all shocking. The US girl who tried to sail around the world and then needed rescue in the middle of her failed attempt apparently comes from a family of 8 children. All the kids are home schooled (no shit) and now their loving father has gotten them all gathered around for a reality TV show.
I hate this so much. What is next? Will the youngest be wrapped in luncheon meat and then sent across a game reserve in India that specializes in Tiger preservation?
Why do any families with more than 5 kids assume we want to see them do anything other than risk their lives. Because they are home schooled they are already idiots or follow some batshit crazy religion that can be exploited in some manner.
If I was in this family I would run away with my brother and sisters and then do a show where dad tries to find us all the while trying to recapture his failed dreams of youth - then when he does find us we take baseball bats and recover our childhoods and self-respect. Well except for little Timmy - last seen lost in the Punjab.
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.
