About Me

My photo
I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

VERY EXPENSIVE THINGS


Pablo Picasso's 1955 painting, Les femmes d'Alger (Version O), sold for $179,365,000 at Christie's auction house in New York in 2015. It set a new world record for the most valuable work of art sold at auction.

Jeff Koons' Balloon Dog (Orange) achieved a very grown-up price of $58,405,000.


And it didn’t even come with one of these.


Blue Moon Diamond, a sensational 12.03 carat stone, sold for $48.5 million at a Sotheby's auction. The stone was bought by Hong Kong billionaire as a gift for his seven year old daughter.

Telling someone they can't be sad because others have it worse is like telling someone they can't be happy because others have it better.

The glass chalice, known as the Lycurgus Cup because it bears a scene involving King Lycurgus of Thrace, appears jade green when lit from the front but blood-red when lit from behind—a property that puzzled scientists for decades after the museum acquired the cup in the 1950s. The mystery wasn’t solved until 1990, when researchers in England scrutinized broken fragments under a microscope and discovered that the Roman artisans were nanotechnology pioneers: They’d impregnated the glass with particles of silver and gold, ground down until they were as small as 50 nanometers in diameter, less than one-thousandth the size of a grain of table salt.

The DEA, the prison industry, politicians, and drug cartels all know the war on drugs is unwinnable, but they make so much money from the catastrophic effects of drug prohibition that they have little motivation to try harm reduction policies, which are proven to be much more effective than a hard-line approach.

I wonder how many people come visit our country and then immediately leave after trying a slice of American cheese.

This tattered V-neck linen shirt, currently on display in the UCL Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, is the world’s oldest woven garment. A recent radiocarbon testing conducted by the University of Oxford has established with 95% accuracy that the dress was made between 3482-3102 BC. While garments of similar age has survived to the present day, but those were simply wrapped or draped around the body. The Tarkhan dress, on the other hand, is a tailored piece with long sleeves, V-neck and narrow pleats, that looks surprisingly modern.

Most rivers flow in one broad channel of water, but some rivers split into lots of small channels that continually split and join each other to give a braided appearance. These are called braided rivers.

This is indeed problematic...
Why would chemicals...the exact right chemicals, want to create a thing like DNA? It is very mysterious. But not understanding how it works does not automatically lead to magic or a supreme being. I would counter that it's just what they do.
The bigger mystery is why the quarks "decided" to bunch together to form atoms. It's. Just. What. They. Do.

Researchers pinpointed Galaxy GN-z11 as the most remote one they'd ever seen, existing just 400 million years after the Big Bang. That breaks the previous record for most distant galaxy by over 150 million years from the Big Bang.

A curious spiral of blue and white light appeared in the night sky over northern Norway and Sweden, freaking out a section of the public and generating an intense debate among astronomers and scientists as well as conspiracy theorists. 
Everything from anomalous Northern lights, to aliens and a trans-dimensional wormhole was suggested. The light was seen from all across northern Norway as well as from northern Sweden, and was reported to have lasted for 10 minutes.

To get an idea of how large the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is it has been rendered next to a city.   This is the same comet that the Rosetta spacecraft landed on last year.
