That our appartment has a rat problem
How do you know? Did you see one? I'm terrified of rodents, I have a real phobia of them and rats are the worst. I also have a morbid fascination for them because of that

The Korean schools I worked at all had the same system. They all had at least one part time cleaner to do the toilets properly but the kids did most of the work. It's a good system

I heard noises several times at night and eventually (after my initial post) saw them, but they were not rats but mice. I cleaned up the apartment and searched for holes and found them. I tried gassing them with deodrant (they wanted this total war) but it didn't work since they came back. Now I have blocked all entrances, searched the whole apartment for defensive weaknesses and filled them up with foam. That would do for now. The border is secure again.

I'm not as young as I use to be. I pulled 70 okra plants out of my garden yesterday afternoon, some of them over 8 ft. tall with 2-3 inch thick stalks that needed to be dug out, then pulled any weeds that were growing and broke out the tiller to turn the soil to get ready for fall planting.

A bit sore today for all my effort but happy I finally got it done. I have okra coming out of my ears from this summer's crop.

That there is more dark matter in the universe than anything else, but we can't even prove its existence

Today I learned why Matt Damon and Ben Affleck sold the script for "Good Will Hunting" to Harvey Weinstein and Miramax.

Why did they choose him over a big studio? Weinstein explained all on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show.

"Everyone in Hollywood wanted Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and the film", he recalled. "In the meeting with them, I said 'I only have one really big note on the script. About page 60, the two leads, both straight men, have a sex scene. What the hell is that?'"

Fair question, considering that up until that point, there had been nothing vaguely romantic about their relationship.

Turns out there was a very specific strategy behind Damon and Affleck's apparent non sequitur. "That's the scene", they explained to Weinstein, "we wrote to see if guys like you read the script, because every studio executive we went to hadn't read it. You're the only guy who brought it up, so you get the movie".

Good Will Hunting would go on to gross over $200 million worldwide, reportedly costing just $10 million to make.




Also, I Iearned that the skeleton in the coffin in "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" is real:



A deceased Spanish actress had put it in her will that she wanted to act even after her death.

Also I learned that on the Japanese island of Yakushima, macaque monkeys are known to ride deer for transportation, and in return they groom deer and share food with them:

Yeah, that monkey is doing so much more than just "riding" that poor deer.

Today I learned that Canadian money is awesome, check out this security feature:


And I learned that the Saudis are even more pent-up repressed cunts than I thought. Check out the Starbucks logo in Saudi Arabia:



Because look at this whore, it's completely unreasonable to have an image like this on public display:


And IKEA is happy to bend over for Islamic fuckwits. Here's a page from the Saudi version of one of their catalogues, where the female model has been photoshopped out because look at that whore standing there with her family and her face showing, what a disgrace:



Backwards cunts.
