Electric Lips

Scroll down for today's pictures & links.

Electric Lips

The Flame Scallop, Ctenoides ales, sports some "electricity" in its bioluminescent mantle. Interestingly, it's not a scallop, but a marine bivalve mollusc with red and white tentacles. It also has something like a thick long tongue, which helps it to climb rocks - more info.

Got a Segway? Stash it in this vehicle:

Granted, the Saturn Flextreme is not news, as it was introduced at a 2008 auto show, but somehow we have not mentioned it before, and it is pretty cool. Even though General Motors discontinued the Saturn brand, and so far Segways have only been a success in niche markets - don't you think that such a combination has a future?

Thinking of having a monkey as a pet?

This month at National Geographic's Flashback Gallery are various exotic pets and working animals. Look at this idyllic scene from 1942:

Bottom left: Dorothy Lamour with a performing chimpanzee on the set of "The Jungle Princess".

Bottom right: "Mrs. E. Kenneth Hoyt, of Habana, Cuba, acquired the gorilla in 1932 when he was three months old. Mr. Hoyt had just shot Toto's father in the French Congo. African villagers, without the knowledge of the Hoyts, then killed the mother. Mrs. Hoyt, unwilling to see the baby die, procured an African nurse for the gorilla and he thrived on human milk."

"Bluebeards Revenge" Pirate-Themed Shaving Creme Battles Heavy Beards

There is a new brand of premium, paraben free shaving cream called "The Bluebeards Revenge". It sports a great Jolly Roger on its packaging, so when keeping it in a bathroom - you may need to do a little bit of explaining: "No, it's not poisonous. No, it's not hazardous to health". Other than this bit of trouble, it does the job nicely - and is very smooth, with a promise to slow down the beard's growth as an added benefit.

"The luxurious cream is made from a unique and secret ingredient called Decelerine, which contains a mixture of active ingredients that delay hair growth, reducing the frequency of shaving"

You might want to check out this video of the Proper Barbershop open-razor technique, or see how one man uses a volcanic sharp rock instead of a razor.

Wikipedia Printed Out

Wikipedia as a printed book? Well, to print the whole Wikipedia will take approximately 1,504 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica - see the picture below for the size of library you'd need:

(click to enlarge)

However, Rob Matthews decided to print just a 0.01% portion of Wikipedia - only the Featured Articles (makes sense!). The resulting volume came up to be some 5,0000 pages - what's more, Rob plans to sell it! - more info

Except of course Bluebeard wasn't a pirate, he was a French serial wife murderer, which makes the whole 'Bluebeard's revenge' thing ever so slightly sinister...
