7324 – Sunday

Ah, that’s why I didn’t get into Anarchy online.. full screen doesn’t support dual monitors all that well…keeps minimizing, and running it windowed gives me a black screen. Dang annoying.Still, pretty neat when it ticks over properly.

My internal monologue has been strangely quiet lately. normally, I have a multitude things bubbling around inside my head, with different things breaking the surface, like raisins in ginger ale. my Monkey and robot seem to be teaming up against central control. Monkey is behind the whole thing, I’m sure.


I never knew the meaning of the term histrionics until I hung out with RP gamers (sadly, more OOC than IC) and read random journals online.

I’d never seen hubris in action until I read livejournal.

What else can be found if you just do a random cross-section? Hedonists. Hysteria. Heckling. Hypochondriacs. Haughtiness. Hyperbole. Hotheads. Hubbub. Hypocrites.

In fact, it seems that I may be a bit hypercritical (as well as a bit hypocritical) when it comes to online journals for the most part. Of the journals I read regularly, very few are like those mentioned above, though everyone has one or two elements there.

Oh yeah. Some good H-words too. Helpers, Humanitarians, Hotties, and Humor. Also, a Herpetologist. (In no particular order) That makes it worthwhile.

Moment of Lyric:

I took a walk around the world to ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere in the sands of time
I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

Exploding toads baffle German experts

BERLIN (AFP) – Hundreds of toads have met a bizarre and sinister end in Germany in recent days, it was reported: they exploded.

According to reports from animal welfare workers and veterinarians as many as a thousand of the amphibians have perished after their bodies swelled to bursting point and their entrails were propelled for up to a metre (three feet).

It is like “a science fiction film”, according to Werner Smolnik of a nature protection society in the northern city of Hamburg, where the phenomenon of the exploding toad has been observed.

“You see the animals crawling on the ground, swelling and then exploding.”

He said the bodies of the toads expanded to three and a half times their normal size.

“I have never seen such a thing,” said veterinarian Otto Horst. So bad has the death toll been that the lake in the Altona district of Hamburg has been dubbed “the pond of death.”

Access to it has been sealed off and every night a biologist visits it between 2:00 and 3:00 am, which appears to be peak time for batrachians to go bang.

Explanations include an unknown virus, a fungus that has infected the water, or crows, which in an echo of the Alfred Hitchcock movie “The Birds”, attack the toads, literally scaring them to death.
