Bios Urn

Spanish designer Martin Azua has created a product called Bios Urn. It takes “going green” to life after your death.

His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even have the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on what kind of planting space you prefer.

Nose and Ears Never Stop Growing

Did you know our nose and ears never stop growing?

That’s right. Bones, stop growing after puberty and muscle and fat cells also stop dividing. But cartilage – that’s the plastic-like stuff in ears and noses – cartilage continues to grow until the day you die. Not only does cartilage grow, but the earlobes elongate from gravity. And that makes ears look even larger.

Fireworks

Today’s Independence Day celebration will be without fireworks in most areas.  They were banned because of draught conditions here in Texas. Dogs are probably reveling on this news.  My dog, for example, is happy for not having to spend the entire night under the bed.

 

Pipe Dream

While most of Texas is in a historical drought, Mississippi river has seen historical flooding. Can you please send some of that water to us?

If you are wondering, why so much pipes? Hey, this is a pipe dream. What did you expect?

How hot is it?

Seeing lot of distressed and dead trees in our neighborhood. That should keep the company that enforces our subdivision’s deed restrictions busy- sending all those nasty notices to home owners to cut down those trees.

It’s Natural

Using our natural resources have made us what we are today and what we will be tomorrow. Yes, the earth is warming and we are contributing to it. However, in grand scheme of things, I don’t see anything unnatural about it. We just sped up the natural process what nature would have done it anyway.
