Compulsive Eclecticism

Being raised by a family in the pawn shop business taught me that everything is valuable. Twenty-four years of breathing has taught me that value, to me, is more than a number. I live my life by looking beyond the surface. Valuable little finds only lie close to the heart. Dig.

Egyptians May Have Domesticated Cats Earlier Than Thought

At the ancient Egyptian site of Hierakonopolis, in a cemetery containing the remains of humans, baboons, leopards, and hippopotamuses, archaeologists have found the skeletons of six cats, buried together near the wall of the cemetery, that could push the date of cat domestication in Egypt back to 6,000 years ago. An examination of the cats’ teeth and bones showed that there were two young adults of about a year old, and four kittens from at least two litters, all probably of the species Felis silvestris, a small wildcat found in Africa, Europe, and central Asia. One litter of kittens was only slightly older than the other, suggesting that the natural reproductive cycle had been interrupted, perhaps with food and human care. “The last word on cat domestication (when and where) is not yet said,” bioarchaeologist Wim Van Neer of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences and Catholic University, Leuven, told Live Science. “We want to investigate whether there was only one domestication center (in the Levant), or whether Egypt should also be considered as a second, later, domestication center.

I think that’s a pretty wise statement for anyone, religious or otherwise.

Someone I look up to deeply passed along this little gem. I am so guilty of being wasteful. From throwing away food to spending money on materialistic bullshit I don’t need. For less than the cost of a soda a day you could drastically change someone’s live. Poverty is very real and if you want to lift the veil of ignorance then ask questions and be proactive. This book makes me feel terrible about myself and so grateful for being healthy and safe. #getoffyourass #makeadifference #onelove #poverty #savealife #petersinger #whoswithme

A South Korean designer named Jeabyun Yeon has created a conceptual scuba mask that will allow humans to breath underwater without the aid of an oxygen tank. It is called Triton, and mimics the gills found on fish to draw oxygen from the water to supply breathable air for humans. How exciting.
