Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

He Took A Dump Jul 08, 2008

I learnt a new word today - coprolite (KUP-ruh-lyte) means fossilized excrement.

And you might be wondering why this is of any significance? Well in the example of usage of the word I read this bit which naturally had me googling for authenticity.

"Visitors to the centre can see genuine mineralised Viking excrement on permanent display. The coprolite was discovered in 1972."
Unusual 'Display'; Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph (UK); Jun 19, 2008.

Let me warn you though, if the sight of such a doo doo is totally revolting to you, please skip either link :) which gives you a visual of the said historical dump remnant.

So some viking pooped, took a crap, dumped, unloaded whatever ... and 1200 years later, his fossilised 'turd' is being 'repaired' after it broke into 3 pieces ...

Oh man!!! This had to be the highlight of the day after the kind of rubbish we've been experiencing the last few weeks in Bolehland...

I wonder if AI, AAB or NR or anyone else important took a dump, would anyone be interested in discovering their in fossilization process or have we had enough of the crap they dump on us anyways day in day out??

For an interesting blog about this have a look read here.

One never ceases to learn something new everyday ... :)
