Hello all my honeybabies! So I have not blogged in a while… and Im not going to lie, its because Sim City 4 Deluxe was released from Mac last week and I’ve been completely consumed by it. Judge me if you must, but at least I can die knowing I was honest!
But anyhow, Im back bitches with another installment of my favorite blog post! Its time to BLOW YOUR MIND! When Im feeling down, nothing helps me feel better than some crazy facts about life. So, here we go!
So it was once believed that the movie Anaconda could have never happened. Obviously Hollywood took some liberty to enlarge the snake a bit and turn him into a man-eater. The average size of a Green Anaconda (which is the largest variety of Anaconda) is between 15 and 22 feet. However, stories of giant snakes have been around in the folklore of tribes for centuries…. until 2012 when this video was taken:
This snake is much larger than 15 feet, in fact some say its double that and is around 30 feet long. Also to note, cows are much larger than most animals on an anaconda’s diet. An anaconda will eat pigs, turtles, sometimes birds. But a full sized cow is larger than other recorded incident. Whats to stop them from eating people?
So have you ever seen the movie Contact? (have I mentioned this movie before?) If you haven’t seen it go watch it right now. So do you know you don’t age in space? Ok, so the reason I bring up Contact is because, do you remember that old guy who secretly built the second machine for Jodie Foster? (Again, if you haven’t seen it, just say yes and act like you have. Then after reading this IMMEDIATELY run home and watch it!) So anyway, the reason he moved to space was because it was the only way he could stay alive because of the cancer.
Ok so heres why:
First off. Time Dilation. This is part of the theory of relativity. Blah blah blah science blah…. long story short. The faster you move, the slower you age. And in space you’re moving very fast. Why? Well an object in motion will stay in motion unless there is something there to stop it. And in space, you have nothing there to stop you.
On top of that, you don’t have anything to age you. here on Earth we have the elements. The changing of seasons, the bacterias and viruses being spread, and most importantly GRAVITY. That little bitch who constantly pulls your body down and ruins your skin, joints, bones, and muscles. In space you don’t have that. its all smooth sailing. So hypothetically specking, is space the best place for a retirement home? (…if nothing else, it would keep them off the roads)
Ok, so this something that has ALWAYS been super interesting to me. So in the city of Portland, Oregon, there is something called the Portland Underground….but more comely known as the Shanghai Tunnels. Why, well my dear because it is believed that they were used for an old swashbuerking practice known as Shanghaiing. This is where you take someone and force them to be your slave on your pirate ship.
So these tunnels were connected to the basements of many hotels and bars in Portland and so the story goes: Man and woman go to a bar to have a night of drinking…drinking….and more drinking…
Little do they know the bar owner has a little deal with some pirate friends. And once your so piss drunk you’re about to pass out, you’re escorted into a back room where your wife is kidnapped and taken into prostitution. You are given a stiff punch in the face to knock you out and are then dragged through these tunnels which lead to the harbor and when you wake up you’re a slave on a ship!
Ah, The Good Ole’ Days!
Did you know that in the state of Ohio it is illegal to hunt for whales on Sundays? For those of you who don’t know anything about Ohio, it is a landlocked state in the middle of the continent.. the only body of water it touches is Lake Erie…which granted, is one of largest bodies of fresh water on this planet, but its still fesh water… so no whales.
They do however have “Bessie”. Bessie is like Nessie….but the lake Erie version. Between 1793 and 1900 heaps and heaps of sightings were reported of this supposed creature
One account, probably the most famous, was an account from a boat departing from Buffalo, NY to Toledo, Oh where the entire crew reported seeing the serpent in front of the boat.
What is so strange about Bessie is how similar all the sightings are. it isn’t like Nessie where you just hear, “oh it was a big thing with a hump”. Bessie supposedly is a large serpent-like fish, about 30 feet long. with its front fins that can be used almost as arms (much like the real-life Snakehead)
Ok so there you have it! Hope that made you guys see that there is always more than meets the eye and that life is totally crazy!
