Oh, for the love of GOD!!!

I stumbled upon a blog today that gave me the same eye opening feeling I felt when I’ve read “The Da Vinci Code”.

Forget the Chaos Theory I was planning to write about, forget the debates between evolution and creationism and even the ancient aliens. The worms that reside inside the human body people – this is what you should know about.

I take my hat off to the B.M. Free Press blog for the patience (and stomach) to add these videos on her blog.

I’m not going to embed the YouTube videos on my site because this would not be fair to the owner of the B.M. Free Press blog. Instead I’m going to add this link below so you can watch for yourself.

‘Nuff said. See for yourself.

SocialSpark - can help you earn some extra money

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


Why I am writing about SocialSpark? Because I think this is something that could help many of you, dear aspiring bloggers out there, to earn some extra cash. We are living difficult times. With a never ending crisis, income lowering, bills increasing, people losing their jobs… it’s just mayhem out there.

So what is SocialSpark? It is an advertising program run by the company IZEA that allows advertisers to connect with bloggers for promotional opportunities. That means you are paid to write on your blog honest reviews and promote different type of products added by the advertisers.

One of the best things in comparison with other pay to review sites out there is that on this site signing up is free. You don’t need to pay any memberships to receive access to a database of freelance writing jobs. You just sign in with a username, password, and the URL for your blog and you can start reviewing.

Another plus is the wide range of reviewing opportunities: you can review from a dating site to an online bookstore and get paid for it. The earning depends fully on how much time you spend on the opportunities and how many you take.

The workflow is easy: you search for an opportunity, accept it, post a review on your site, add the review for acceptance on SocialSpark and if the advertiser accepts your review you have officially started to earn some extra money.

But be careful!  Your grammar must be bullet proof and you need to meet all the review requirements requested by the advertiser. And meet the requested deadline!
So if you think this is a good opportunity for you to earn that extra dollar sign up now.

This is real - A Headless Chicken lived for 4 years ...

... until it choked with a corn ... if you can believe it.

Did you know...

  • Beetles taste like apples, wasps like pine nuts, and worms  like fried bacon (note it down in case world hunger comes knocking - P.S. I sincerely pity the people used to research this)
  • In 1386, a pig in France was executed by public hanging for the murder of a child (no comment)
  • Human thigh bones are stronger than concrete
  • Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian, and had only ONE testicle (that explains why he was so pissed off at the world)
  • Honey is the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted by archaeologists and found edible (why would you do that?)
  • The average lead pencil will draw a line 35 miles long or write approximately 50,000 English words (I'm curious how much someone is paid to analyze this? I would feel like an idiot dragging a line with a pencil for 35 miles)
  • Dolphins sleep with one eye open! (with sharks as neighbors I'd do the same)
  • The longest recorded flight  of a chicken is 13 seconds (Fly, birdie, fly!)

  • A giraffe can clean its ears with its 21-inch tongue (I don't know about that but they sure can pick their nose with it)

  • An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain (that explains why they shove their  heads in the sand in case of danger)
  • You can't kill yourself by holding your breath (No joking?)

Did Hominids Who May Have Been Smarter Than Us exist?

Google "Boskops" and you will find a lot of speculation and debates about this group of hominids. I'm going to post below some interesting links where you can find full debates.

The below skull was found in the autumn of 1913 by two farmers digging a drainage ditch in a small town called Boskop, about 200 miles inland from the east coast of South Africa.

These farmers took the skull to the director of the Port Elizabeth Museum, in a small town at the tip of South Africa and the it came to the attention of S. H. Haughton, one of the country’s few formally trained paleontologists.

The Boskop man's skull was originally claimed to be 30 percent larger than that of modern humans therefore more intelligent. Another strange feature was that these people had small, childlike faces. Anyone having a deja-vu around alien abduction movies?

Animal Hybrids

WOW, they are many ! Have you ever heard of a Tiglon, or Liger? Well you'll hear now because they really do exist.

This, ladies and gentlemen is a Liger, a hybrid between a lion and a tiger created by the hand of man:

But what about a Wolphin (dolphin and whale)?

Zonkey, a zebra/donkey cross?

There are many others. Full list of animal hybrids on Wikipedia:

I want to make a formal request- don't know to whom yet- to create in the future a hybrid between a pig and parrot so we can have a red pig with pink wings.
