There is nothing more important than urban gardening these days. The colder it gets outside the warmer we have to make it inside ourselves. Here, we see a group of masters practicing urban gardening; producing even their own croissants only by the power of good will and imagination. It is fantastic to become a witness of how sustainability does its magic work in the brains of mankind. Without doubt: the grand transformation is under way.

No matter if we feed ourselves with or without meat; no matter if we eat bread or not; whatever we eat and no matter if it’s organic or not – we are all supposed to pay our food the amount of respect it deserves. However, we live in a time where day by day millions of tons of food will be thrown away all over the world. And this mainly for profit reasons only. We simply have to stop this: «That’s just one small step for each indivudual, but one giant leap for mankind».

Hugh Sensation: «Dolphins Claim To Be Reborn Picasso As They Got Heavily Stoned After Chewing Gently A Puffer Fish (Fugu) Which Was Swimming Around A Little Bit Too Carelessly»

Art critics, art collectors and other artists from all over the world were and are still wondering up until today from which magic source Pablo Picasso might have sought his never ending ‹high voltage› creativity. Thanks to John Downer Productions and BBC we do now know; and – of course – thanks to some lust-for-life-dolphins too: «After chewing the fugu and gently playing ‹puff puff pass› with it, they began acting most peculiarly, hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection,» said Rob Pilley, zoologist and one of the producers of the documentary. «Even the brightest humans have succumbed to the lure of drugs and, it seems, dolphins are no different,» said The Sundy Times.

On the photograph above we see how Pablo Picasso routinely makes a puffer fish part of his daily diet in order to act highly creatively driven inside his studio afterwards. When doing so in 1931, for example, Picasso came out of it with his amazing painting «Grande Nature Morte Au Guéridon»:

Honestly, would it have been possible to create such a stunning masterpiece of artwork without having consumed a decent dosage of tetrodotoxin (TTX) regularly performing Mambo #5 in one’s blood vessels? Experts tend to deny this question. Experts also think that these little «balloons» on Pablo Picasso’s painting are subtly quotating the shape of a puffer fish. And, even more importantly: Isn’t Pablo Picasso’s most favourite shirt, the «Marinière» (traditional navy-shirt with white and blue stripes) a strong indication for visualised fugu fishbones? Experts tend to answer this question with «yes!»

Lastly, if dolphins do puff for pleasure, there is one more question we have to ask: what would this dolphin’s painting look like?

Should you wish to make any guessings, please feel free to do so, or: read another article about this matter on Discover Magazine. By the way: Doesn’t this dolphin look exactly like him: Pablo Picasso? We think it does. Just compare the two similar smiles with each other and Picasso’s significant neck fold that is truely identical with the dolphin’s one – if you are willing to accept the fact that, based on genetical basics, a dolphin’s neck starts right behind his eyes. In addition: both parties seem to suffer from severe lack of hair. As a result, this dolphin claiming to be reborn Picasso must be right.

Jupiter Structural Layer Cake

1 Aug

Cakecrumbs writes in his blog: «When my sister asked me what I was making and I said Jupiter, she said to me, “I didn’t even know Jupiter had layers.” It’s amazing how much we can forget after learning it in primary school. So here’s a rehashing for those of you who’ve also forgotten. Our knowledge is mostly theoretical of course, but the gas giants are thought to have a core comprised mostly of rock and ice. This is surrounded by a layer liquid metallic hydrogen, and the outer layer is composed of molecular hydrogen. In cake speak, this translates to a core made of mudcake, surrounded by almond butter cake, surrounded by a tinted vanilla Madeira sponge. There’s a crumb coat of vanilla buttercream underneath the fondant.»
