New Throat Microphone

This should be in our Cool Inventions list

Micro Phone

This throat mic is used mainly by tactical assault groups and SWAT teams, throat microphones are something you rarely see on the street. This will change now with Sanwa’s latest hands free system, a Japanese phone design based on a military throat microphone.

It might not be used all the time, but if you work in a noisy environment it could greatly improve a phone conversation.

Art Masterpieces in Vegetables

Chinese artist Ju Duoqi puts a whole new meaning to ‘playing with your food,’ transforming ordinary vegetables into veggie replicas of legendary works of art by masters such as Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, and Andy Warhol’s Marylin Monroe.

Ju Duoqi’s kitchen is her studio, and vegetables are her paint. The 35-year-old artist uses boiled, dried, fried, and pickled vegetables, finishing with the fastest-rotting ingredients to create her masterpiece versions made entirely out of vegetables.

Her art breathes new life into ordinary vegetables, taking ‘green art’ to the extreme using everyday vegetables such as tofu, cabbage, ginger, lotus roots, coriander, and sweet potatoes.

Lumpy potatoes acquire expressive facial features, and radish roots, lettuce leaves, and cloves of garlic are transformed into Botticelli’s Venus.

Sichuan-born Ju carefully slices and carves the veggies, and then assembles her works with toothpicks, taking up to 2 weeks to complete a single recreation of some of the world’s most famous works in photographs.

The former website and computer game designer turned artist has been creating about 2 vegetable sculptures a month since 2006.

“You wouldn’t know them any better if they were chopped into French fries and covered in ketchup, but when placed in the picture, they all appear unfamiliar and rich in facial expression.”

“On the ground lies the body of a winter melon soldier, with rotting ketchup flowing out of his body like blood. The battleground is strewn with rotting vegetable leaves. This great story of history, this world-famous painting, here becomes completely absurd.”

These ’simple techniques’ pay Ju’s bills, as photos taken of the culinary masterpieces go for between $1,500 to $2,000 US each.

Her works which also include replicas of famous pieces such as Monet’s self-portrait and Leonardo’s Mona Lisa created with tofu are currently showcased at the Paris-Beijing Photo Gallery for ‘The Vegetable Museum’ exhibition.

Her organic version of Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Munroe fashioned from cabbage and a spring onion sold within a few hours of the exhibition’s launch to a foreign buyer, hungry for what could be called ‘crop art.’

Evolution of the word SHIT

In the 16th and 17th centuries, before commercial fertilizer was invented, large shipments of manure were transported by ship. It was shipped in dry bundles because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet-but once water hit it at sea, it not only became heavier, but when the process of fermentation began, a byproduct which is methane gas was formed. It didn’t take long for methane to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before somebody figured out what was happening. Once they
determined the role that manure played in the explosions,

Everybody began stamping the bundles with the term “Ship High In Transit”, so that the sailors would
know to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not
touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.!

Thus evolved the term “S.H.I.T,” which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very
day. You probably did not know the true history of this word. Neither did I.

Jon Stewart owns CNBC and Santelli

Looks like Jon Stewart shares my contempt for the inane talking heads on these business shows. The only show that makes any sense to me is the Dave Ramsey show on Fox Business Shows. I tuned in to it to see Dave Ramsey as I had read about him on a few blogs and he seems to be the only sane guy around. Sober calm advice with none of the hysteria or euphoria.

Here’s Jon Stewart’s takedown !!

Avoid cruise control, when wet or icy

I wonder how many people know about this?

A 36-year old female had an accident several weeks ago and totalled her car. A resident of Wollongong, NSW, she was travelling between Wollongong & Sydney.

It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly began to hydroplane and literally flew through the air. She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence!

When she explained to the policeman what had happened, he told her something that every driver should know – NEVER drive IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON.

She had thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.

But the policeman told her that if the cruise control is on and your car begins to hydroplane — when your tyres lose contact with the pavement, your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed and you take off like an airplane.

She told the policeman that was exactly what had occurred. The policeman estimated her car was actually travelling through the air at 10 to 15 kms per hour faster than the speed set on the cruise control.

The policeman said this warning should be listed, on the driver’s seat sun-visor – NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning.

Insurance companies, do warn about this

Pass it on to your family & friends
