MilkGoneWild

Some sort of spoof, I think. Girls with udders for start then some disturbing stuff about treatment of dairy cows. Might be NSFW if your boss doesn't know tits from udders (hint:count the nipples.)

OK, now I see - made by PETA - make up your own mind.

New Take On An Old Idea















via

Model World

"It's often hard to convince people that Olivo Barbieri's aerial photographs are real. They look uncannily like hyperdetailed models, absent the imperfections of reality. Streets are strangely clean, trees look plastic, and odd distortions of scale create the opposite effect of what we expect from aerial photography--a complete overview, like military surveillance. "

Urine For a Treat




















How to avoid side effects - drink the urine of someone who's already taken it. I'd already heard that folk used to drink the urine of animals (?reindeer - and is that why Santa flies?) but this is a new one on me. BTW, while this wonderful govt has already outlawed recreationally used mushrooms that have never killed anyone, Amanita Muscaria, which can be fatal, is still legal. Fecked-up drugs policy getting worse by the minute.

Review: Juvenile Felis Catus

"While domestic cats are a common feature of many computing environments, IT review sites have proven oddly unwilling to investigate this popular computer room accessory.

I aim to redress the balance with this review, which is almost entirely not just an attempt on my part to troll for more traffic from search engines by using the word "pussy"."
