Tom Cruise. His lips are moving but…



“Jung was an editor for the Nazi papers during World War II.”

“Look at the experimentation the Nazis did with electric shock and drugging. Look at the drug methadone. That was originally called Adolophine. It was named after Adolf Hitler.”

From an interview with Entertainment Weekly. EW’s researchers have refuted both statements.

What an asshole.

Farm up for the super-centenarians!



“It took humans 10,000 years to learn how to grow most of the crops we now take for granted. Along the way, we despoiled most of the land we worked, often turning verdant, natural ecozones into semi-arid deserts. Over 60% of the human population now lives vertically in cities. The time has arrived for us to learn how to grow our food that way, too. If we do not, then in just another 50 years, 3 billion people will surely go hungry, and the world will be a very unpleasant place in which to live.” – The Vertical Farm Project

Seems especially more critical to me if more and more of the population lives to their teens… the second set that is!

“He estimates the world’s population of super-centenarians at 250 and growing, in part because doctors, medicines and nutrition have prolonged what experts call the human health span — the period between birth and the cascade of medical problems that mark the end of life.” – Hitting the Big Eleven-O

A serious case of cara grossa…



It’s time to spread the word about a disease known as “cara grossa”. It only afflicts celebrities and is usually detectable over long periods of time. It can be difficult to spot unless: a) you haven’t seen the star for many years – ie: your most recent memory is at least a 5-10 years old; or b) you suspect the condition and go looking for proof. At first I thought it might be related to scientology (see John Travolta above or think Kirstie Alley…) but then I reflected on the thin faces of Beck, Juliette Lewis and Tom Cruise…then changed my mind. No, it’s something else… and even our heroes are not immune.

Drug Deal Interrupted: Heat wave encourages willy-wavin’ creepy naked guy. Part Two.



A slightly frantic conversation ensues.

“Um, there’s a naked guy following my friend and I. We’re not sure what to do and we’re scared.”

“Where is he right now?”

“Uhhh, walking behind us. We’re on Palmerston just south of Bloor… Can you please send someone right away?”

“What is he doing ma’am? Does he have a weapon, is he threatening you?”

“He’s just walking. He has nothing. No clothes, shoes. Nothing. Please, send someone. We don’t know what to do and we’re scared.”

Our banter went on like this for awhile. I think that because there was no direct threat and he didn’t appear to have a weapon, our case wasn’t as urgent as we would have liked. Our dispatcher said they would send someone as soon as they could and asked that we understand it was a busy night for them. But GOSH, there’s a naked guy following us! I asked the friendly 911 lady if she would at least stay on the phone with us until we got to my apartment and she agreed since we were so close already.

At around the same time, we were crossing Ulster, naked guy in tow. Just as we were crossing, we saw some people standing around a car in the intersection at Markham.

“Look, there’s people! Hey! Help!!”
