Novelty Theory

Terrence McKenna has a Wiki entry worthy of mention, but it's his more obscure theory of universal novelty that should be a starting point for everyone who wants access to the weird, wacky world of the father of modern entheogens.

From the man that brought us the Psilocybin theory of evolution, 'Novelty Theory' proposes the end of history is on its way, December 21 2012. Whilst it could in fact be a giant, culture jamming hoax it's no more crazy than beleiving in God, and 'novelty theory' sounds a whole lot more awesome.

The Jersey Devil

According to one version of the tale, the Jersey Devil was the thirteenth child born to a Mrs. Leeds, a resident of the Pine Barrens during the mid-17th century. Mrs. Leeds was so upset at yet another pregnancy that after giving birth she exclaimed, "I am tired of children! Let the devil take this one!" What was once a human child immediately transformed into a winged monstrosity; he ate all the other children and flew out through the chimney.

The Jersey Devil has been said to be companion to a headless pirate, a ghostly woman, and a werewolf. In certain parts of South Jersey, the Devil is rumored to live in an apocryphal Agent Orange plant near Chatsworth, a very small town surrounded by forest and sand.

6 year old JonBenet is found murdered and possibly sexually assaulted in the basement of her home on Christmas night, never solved.
Old news to most of you I'm sure, but after catching the first half of a TV film about this one, I got hooked.
The whole thing, the fact it didn't really get solved, the fact her mother has gone to her grave without coming out with the truth, I dig it.
Second part of the doco style film is on tomorrow night.
I like that wiki isn't afraid to link to the autopsy photos and speculate.

Something more intelligent from me later in the week.

Happy Corner

Happy Corner, also known as Aluba (or "hitting the tree") in Taiwan, is a hazing ritual that is popular among Asian male students, especially those in higher education institutes such as universities, as well as among adolescent males in middle and high school

A bit more complicated than an old-fashioned kick to the groin, but that's where the Happy Corner derives both its humiliating and comedic value. This is something I think could be exported from Taiwan to high-schools in the Western world.
