museum of toilets
"Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, the founder... [of] ...a pioneering organisation in the field of Sanitation in India, envisioned the need for the setting up of a museum of toilets in the sprawling campus of his central office New Delhi. The idea engaged his mind for long, eventually leading him to make hectic worldwide search for minutest details of the evolution of toilets, as also of various toilet designs used in different countries at different points of time."

defecation would appear to be a rather complex undertakingunder the local codes.

human spontaneous involuntary invisibility
"Then there is the case of Melanie in Ventura, California, who became invisible while sitting on her own living room sofa and staring at the wall, lost in her own thoughts. Her husband was walking around the house looking for her but could not see her sitting there, only several feet away from where he was walking. This lasted for approximately ten minutes, then she was suddenly visible again."

squirrel brains may be unsafe
"Squirrel brains are a lip-smacking memory for Janet Norris Gates. They were the choicest morsels of the game her father once hunted in Tennessee. "In our family, we saw it as a prized piece of meat, and if he shared it with you, you were pretty happy. Not that he was stingy," said Mrs. Gates, an oral historian in Frankfort, "but there's just not much of a squirrel brain."

phone trips
"30 years ago I used to go on phone trips. Yes, it's true: I would drive around to small towns primarily for the purpose of playing with their payphones. I often brought along my trusty Craig 212 portable 3-inch reel-to-reel tape recorder to record the phone noises and narrate information about them for my friends."

civilise the city
"Society is teetering on the edge of a precipice overlooking a dark chasm - a darkness where the only affordable footstuffs are hamburgers and pizzas; a darkness where 'a cup of tea' is in reality an overpriced cardboard beaker of tea-flavoured hot water; a darkness where every citizen wears a meaningless outfit of faux-sportif clothing made in third-world sweatshops - in short, it is a darkness in which Chappist qualities such as common courtesy, eccentricity and civility have no place."

the army men homepage
You know them - those toy soldiers molded in soft plastic that are sold by the bagful. They have been around since the 1950s. Known as Army Men, the two- to three-inch soldiers are a staple of many a boy's toy chest. Most folks eventually THINK they outgrew them.
