Some Stranger Creatures Hatching

Some Stranger Creatures Hatching

Octopus – Something about an intelligent, eight tentacled, cephalopods in blimpy eggs ends up making perfect sense.  The delightful little babies emerging with incredibly dainty looking features is rather joyous, but I hear a lot of mother Octopi will starve to death guarding their eggs.  Hopefully she got a tear jerking glimpse of her babies.

Duck Billed Platypus
– one of the worlds strangest creatures and having have seen one at the zoo in Austrailia, they are energetic water puppies.   An oddball of the animal kingdom being a mammal that lays eggs, and comes complete with a mini beaver tail and duck bill. Continue reading →

Eco Wrap – A push for greening up fast food a smidge

Eco Wrap – A push for greening up fast food a smidge

If you have dined-in at a fast food restaurant at some point in your life, you have likely noticed that everything you order comes individually wrapped up and placed on your tray just the same way as it would if it was ordered at the drive through.  By this I mean, your burger/chicken sandwich is in a paper wrap or cardboard box, your fries are in a cardboard caddy, your nuggets are in paper or cardboard, your cookie is even in a tissue.   And if you are like me, the first thing you do is open up the sandwich, unfurl its wrapper, dump the fries/nuggets on to join the sandwich, and start your meal.

The proposal is simple: Have an OPTION at fastfood joints to request Eco Wrapping for Dine-in customers where the food is minimally packaged.  For instance, 1 sheet can be placed on the tray, the burger, fries, and chicken, cookie, whatever, can be placed directly on that, and you will immediately start to reduce waste.

*Despite the graphics, the initial proposal is not to adopt glassware or silverware for dine-in customers, but at the initial onset, to at least reduce all the little cardboard and paper containers that food comes in. Continue reading →

Is crawling style Hereditary?

Is crawling style Hereditary?

The basic question: Is crawling style hereditary?  For instance, my wife crawled “Normal” and I used the seated scooching alternative style.  Our first born was nearing the crawling stage and we just assumed she would crawl “normal”.  But alas, our daughter crawls with a seated scooch like her dear pop.  So, did you and your baby crawl the same?

Of course if the baby’s parents crawled differently than eachother as children, then perhaps the baby took after only one parent or forged a new path entirely.

Incredible Magnets and Marbles

Incredible Magnets and Marbles

Kaplamino

Looks like a slight tilt of a nice table and an assortment of sticky blocks, magnets, and marbles…ads up to genius.  I’m guessing they did each segment and filmed it, and then reset for the next segment.  Check out some of these slow rolls and slick magnetic stunts. Continue reading →
