Life in the Zoo

Wild things are happening at the VD house. You think I'm kidding? Well here's a shot of the primates cage...
With the biggest monkey ever right in the middle :)

Warning: this is thoroughly disturbing

Heard today in class: "There has been widespread speculation that human matter was used to make soap during the Nazi regime. The claims are probably false, but the concept is horrific." --my professor

Said today in class:"Let's not forget that human matter IS used in many cosmetics, even today: aborted babies may be present in the very shampoo you washed your hair with this morning."

Utter silence... let's just change the topic.

PS. To avoid these products, look for "collagen" or "collagen-enriched" on the label --you can read all about it here, or simply google "aborted baby cosmetic" Maybe it's time to graduate from a mere "not tested on animals" cosmetic campaign to a "baby-free" cosmetics campaign!

Winston... Your comment made me laugh twice over :)
Thanks for the picture, definitely! I guess I should watch my use of Google Images :)
As for the survey, let me caution you to "always read the fine print" --the study was conducted on one woman, namely myself. I am hardly "some good ol’ boys group" popularizing the barefoot and pregnant housewife!
I am, however, thoroughly disgusted with the feminism that has permeated every part of my education at my college. It seems to be the secular gospel, and its evangelists are cunning, determined and, ironically, thoroughly intolerant of any alternative views.
I couldn’t help but notice this when a paper of mine was docked for an off-hand statement that "women in general possess less physical strength than men do". Of course, silly me... That’s as ridiculous as saying "caucasians tend to be lighter of skin than African-Americans."
Academic antics aside, while I don't actually suffer from an "irresistable pull" towards the kitchen, I do hope to be married some day... with a child... and yes, even in a kitchen. But make no mistake; it will be no imprisonment but the highest calling a woman could pursue.

Feminism Debunked

Feminists have long promoted the belief that female domesticity is purely a result of cultural conditioning. They also maintain that, given the chance, most women would choose education over and above home-making. However, a recent, groundbreaking study in female behaviour has the potential to expose these claims for the myths they are.
The results are nothing short of earth-shattering. Among the most notable statistics:
  • 100% of those surveyed would rather cook dinner than engage in educational duties
  • Even menial jobs like cleaning washrooms, scrubbing showers and changing dirty diapers (!!) are "way more fun" than composing essays
  • All surveyed persons reported an "unnatural and irresistible" pull away from their books towards the kitchen

Demographics: ages 18-24, attending post-secondary educational institutions.
Number of women surveyed: 1

As usual, creativity flows away while there are essays to be written... in the opposite direction of course. Back to the Maoist Era...

THE DARKNESS BEHIND THEM. It's hard to see; the moon is behind clouds now. But the wind whistles. And the waves pound. And suddenly it's all gone ominous.
INGIO, FEZZIK, AND VIZZINI squinting back, trying desperately to see. At this moment, they are all holding their breaths. THE DARKNESS BEHIND THEM. And there's still nothing to be seen. It's still ominous. Only now it's eerie too. Then -- The moon slips through and -- Inigo was right -- something is very much there. A sailboat. Black. With a great billowing sail. Black. It's a good distance behind them, but it's coming quickly, closing the gap.

INIGO, FEZZIK, AND VIZZINI staring at the other boat.

VIZZINI (explaining with as much logic as he can muster) Probably some local fisherman out for a pleasure cruise at night through eel-infested waters.

...Hehe, good times! This is from a loooong time ago, but it's well-worth the memories...
