  • Free to good home.
  • Excellent guard dog.
  • Owner cannot afford to feed him anymore, as there are no more thieves, murderers or molesters left in the neighborhood for him to eat.
  • Most of them knew him as 'Holy Shit.'

So now we know!

Death Maps  

Posted by Shirley Twofeathers in ,

Here's something I found absolutely fascinating. It's a method of mapping the world based on statistics using cartograms. According to Worldmapper, the cartograms are akin to pie charts, except the slices of the pie are shaped into countries.

"I think that looking at a map rather than just the raw data allows you to see the whole picture and makes for easier comparison between the different datasets," Worldmapper's John Pritchard said in an email."

What I found most interesting were the death maps. Here are some of them:

Death By SuicideDeath by suicide.

Death By VolcanoDeath by volcano.

Death by WarDeath by War.

Death by AIDSDeath by AIDS.

Death by accidental poisoningDeath by accidental poisoning.

Death by avalanches and landslides.Death by avalanches and landslides.

Death by disasterDeath by disaster.

Death by diarrhoeaDeath by diarrhoea.

Death by depressionDeath by depression.

Death by droughtDeath by drought.

Death by drug useDeath by drug use.

Death by earthquakesDeath by earthquakes.

Death by extreme temperatures.Death by extreme temperatures.

Death by firesDeath by fires.

Death by floodDeath by flood.

Death by murderDeath by murder.

Death by glaucomaDeath by glaucoma!
Say what?
Glaucoma? Is that possible? Really?

Lived to be 100And on a more positive note - here is the "Lived to be 100 Map."

Ahh... the Good Old Days!!  

Posted by Shirley Twofeathers in , ,

Here's a selection of Instantaneous Invigorators & Cures of the 1900's. Those were the good old days when heroin and cocaine was sold over the counter for whatever ails you. Don't believe me? Check this out!!

Bayer Heroin
It's a Bottle of Bayer's heroin!! Wow! Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold as a non-addictive (???) substitute for morphine. It was also used to treat children with a strong cough.

Coca Wine
Coca Wine, anyone? Metcalf's Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the market. Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it would also work as a medicinal treatment.

Mariani Wine
Mariani wine was the most famous Coca wine around 1875. Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with him all the time. He awarded Angelo Mariani (the producer) with a Vatican gold medal.

Maltine with your Coca? Produced by Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York. It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal, but children should take half a glass.

Paper Weight
A paper weight promoting C.F. Boehringer & Soehne (Mannheim, Germany). They were proud of being the biggest producers in the world of products containing Quinine and Cocaine.

Asthma Treatment
Opium for Asthma. It was considered safe since it contained no more than 40% alcohol!

Cocaine Tablets
Cocaine Tablets! All stage actors, singers teachers and preachers had to have them in the 1900's for a maximum performance. Great to “smooth” the voice.

Toothache Drops
Cocaine Toothache Drops. Very popular for children in 1885. Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children happy...

Opium for Newborns
Opium for Newborns! This would make them sleep well, and was great for soothing a teething baby. Opium with 46% alcohol - Really? No wonder they were called The Good Old Days!

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
