"QUANTUM SHOT" #157
You may not know about Cthulhu, but they know about you
The last post about Antarctica reminded me of that "unspeakable delicacy" of Lovecraft's imagination, namely the Cthulhu - "the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky."

According to contemporary belief, a few of the species still lie dreaming, sleeping until the time comes - sort of like Lenin in his mausoleum, but infinitely more malevolent. This post serves to remind us of the coming threat ...and increase world awareness of Lenin's miserable plight - his ghost can not get any rest until the body gets a decent burial :)

Architecture like that helps impressionable children to get used to the Cthulhu's presence (which would also explain a lot of weirdness in Soviet Russia)
(see more at John Kovalic's site)
Also see this Flickr set for nature's weirdest Cthulhu approximation.
