José Guadalupe Posada


I love Posada’s work.  With Dia De Los Muertos coming soon I wanted to post some of it.  I will find more.  Some of his best work is a bit obscure, relatively unknown.  The Houston Museum of Fine Art currently has a display of some of his prints.

Sea Creature that looks exactly like a rock with guts.
Pyura chilensis is a creature that not only looks like a rock, but is also completely immobile like one too. It eats by sucking in water and filtering out micro-organisms. Its blood also produces a   rare element called vanadium. 
It is born male, but becomes hermaphroditic at puberty. It also eproduces by tossing clouds of sperm and eggs into the surrounding water and hoping they knock together.
Another fun fact about this creature is that it is consumed. Locals of Chile or Peru (thats where it is found) eat it raw or in stews. They say it tastes “soapy” and "bitter" 

Yet another fun fact. This creature is a tunicate, which means it’s in the phylum chordata, which means, it’s related to animals with back bones. Tunicates are thought to be at the base of the evolutionary branch that lead to whales, tigers, crocodiles, eagles, and humans.
Yes, millions of years ago, your ancestor could have quite possibly looked like a rock with guts.

what the FUCK is this


It doesn’t look that nasty once it’s served. Even though I live in Chile, I’m still too scared to eat it :’)

The Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab
The Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab was a toy produced between 1950 and 1951.  The toy allowed the user to conduct simple experiments with radioactive materials.  Kit included;
A Geiger counter
An electroscope
A Wilson cloud chamber
A spinthariscope
Four samples of uranium ore
Pb-210 lead isotope
Polonium
Ruthenium
Zinc
various other accessories
After only a year of production, the toy was pulled from the market for obvious reasons.
