Dr. Dash’s ability to find stuff made obscure, and Smithsonian’s recognition of this wonderful talent, is worthy of more than just a peek. A meager dash of Dash will not do…you’ll want more.

Who, besides me, at first glance, thought this piece was about…sushi!

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
I feel better when I actively participate in my own thinking process. Recognizing that I control my mind, and not the other way around, allows me to consider why I’m in a bad mood in the first place. If it is a reasonable reaction, or, even if it isn’t, acknowledging that I, in fact, feel bad, is the first step to feeling better. Once I acknowledge that I feel bad, I choose to consider the options: 1. Can I change whatever it is that’s making me feel bad? 2. If I cannot, will dwelling on the subject help to change whatever is disturbing me? 3. What can I think, do, (or not!), to change what I’m thinking and feeling?
As an alcoholic who hasn’t drank for 5 years, this tool has become very handy. Using my brain, instead of drowning it, makes me feel better, just thinking about how liberating it is to be in control of my mind. My mind doesn’t own me. I own my mind. Now. How cool is that, hmmm?
Just a little off the top and taper the sides, please.

Some of the most hideous, evil-looking creatures ever made, are the monstrosities painted by these otherwise unparalleled artists of days gone by.
Were children especially hideous to look upon, back then?
You would think that a mere glimpse at such creatures would solidify any vows of celibacy, and quell any notions of wanton, lusty ways….
The silencer industry says its products are for shooting groundhogs. That’s not what its ads say.
Now. I’m all for a good, old-fashioned, Marmot-Uprising. Groundhogs, unite!
It’s bad enough that groundhogs are shot for fun, called bad names, blamed for behavior that is almost heavenly by comparison to Nugentonians and their love of their god, the gun.
They claim to be righteous, and have still no qualms about lying through their teeth. And this advertisement is a perfect example.
The least they could have done was photoshop a groundhog onto the sign, eh?
I don’t need a gun. I get a bang out of life.
Beautiful. And to think that there are those who lost their heads for mistakenly eating these lovely Tulips…see Mike Dash’s book, “Tulipomania”…awesome read.
