Some writers have stated Muhammad had a favorite cat, Muezza. He is reported to have loved cats so much, ‘he would do without his cloak rather than disturb one that was sleeping on it.’

(Well, I guess that makes Muhammad no different from the rest of us….)

…may not all mankind be a mistake — an abnormal growth — an excressence on the body of infinite progression like a wart on the human hand? Might not the total destruction of humanity, as well as of all animate creation, be a positive boon to Nature as whole? …Our philosophy is all childishly subjective — we imagine that the welfare of our race is the paramount consideration, when as a matter of fact the very existence of the race may be an obstacle to the predestined course of the aggregated universes of infinity! How do we know that the form of atomic and molecular motion called “life” is the highest of all forms? Perhaps the dominant — the most rational and God-like of all beings — is an invisible gas! Or perhaps it is a flaming and effulgent mass of molten star-dust. Who can say that men have souls while rocks have none?

I’m on summer hiatus, still. I miss you all.

I managed to hear via another blog site that Sherlock IV starts filming in January. Imagine!

Weird Al nails it

French Supermarket Chain Launches Food Waste Reduction Campaign that Celebrates Ugly Fruits and Vegetables

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

Please guys, if you could sign this it would mean a lot. I’ve been following this case for months and it’s infuriating how little this zoo and our goverment care about this poor guy. Let’s give him a happy ending.

This is what Mycroft’s looking at when Lestrade comes to ask him about the bolt holes. I know it’s hard to read, but he’s using it to track someone. A couple of things…

1. Codename UGLY DUCKLING? Rubbish big brother, honestly. Except…

2. Hope I’m not about to embarrass myself geography-wise, but that doesn’t look like London…or England. In fact, it kinda looks like…

3. It says “tracking” and the “ugly duckling’s” position is clearly marked, yet Mycroft just tells Lestrade a few more bolt holes to check out and does not give an exact location, then casually dismisses him as if he has bigger things to worry about than his recently-shot little brother’s hospital escape (which we all know isn’t quite true). 

If that really is somewhere around Warsaw – or just anywhere outside of London – well…Sherlock isn’t who Mycroft’s tracking here. So who is it?

Ugly Duckling…well, that’s a famous fairy tale. And we all know who loves fairy tales. Is Mycroft tracking Jim?

Alternatively…it’s the story of a duckling who is rejected by its family and eventually finds acceptance with the beautiful swans. Is Mycroft tracking the other one?

One more option – canonically, Irene Adler was the Prima Donna of the Warsaw Imperial Opera, and in this retelling we know she’s in witness protection. Is Mycroft tracking Irene?

Thoughts?

Yes it’s Poland and yes, it’s Warsaw (more or less). I’d go for him tracking Sherlock while he was on his mission to eliminate Moriarty’s web. And I think the alias “Ugly Duckling” quite suits Sherlock.

Yes, I understood this to be tracking Sherlock.

I still love the Irene Adler theory though

I’ve been so busy I’ve lost touch with all of my Tumblr friends. 

Sorry guise…I still love you.

Buster Keaton in The Blacksmith (1922). I got the chance to see the recently discovered alternate cut of this film (as well as bunch of other amazing rare films) screened on the banks of the Seine a few days ago and wrote a post about the experience.
