Thats one freaky chick, right there!

May 10th mind blowing random thought of the day: Up until the mid 1800s, a single pound of purple dye would cost 3 times its weight in gold due to its extreme rarity. For this reason, the color was never used for flags and was reserved for only the wealthiest of royalty. However, in 1856, English chemist William Henry Perkins accidentally created a synthetic purple aniline compound while trying to synthesize quinine, which was to be an anti-malaria drug. Patenting the discovery as Perkin’s mauve, the dye enabled common people to cheaply make purple fabrics.

May 11th mind blowing random thought of the day: Blackberries and raspberries are not singular fruits, but are actually clumps of tiny individual fruits that grow together.

May 12th mind blowing random thought of the day: Premature babies in hospitals are given crocheted octopuses to help mimic the feel of an umbilical cord so that they won’t accidentally pull out tube monitors, and has been shown to improve the overall health and growth of early newborns.

Yea, no… not even a great idea lol. Increases risk for SIDS, strangulation and suffocation. Nothing is going to stop them getting tangled with cords, wires, etc. and adding tentacles :flushed: is only going to add to the cord chaos going on in a NICU isolette or crib.

Mindblowing thought:in the eighties we were all told that scientific research showed that drinking a glass of wine each day was good for your cardiac vescular system, people with high bloodpressure or high on cholesterol were adviced to n o t give up their red wine. Recently other scientists discovered that the controle group were ex-alcoholists that allready had distroyed their vescular system for years. They actualy concluded from new research that every glass of wine, beer or whatever increases the risk of getting breastcancer, prostatecancer or any other serious illness.
