HOT DOGS CAUSE CANCER

http://www.secmas.gua.net/user/help/pictures/hotdog.gif

Researchers in the US have suggested that the nitrates in hot dogs and other preserved meats might cause cancer.

Now, if we could just show that the dog with cancer that became not-a-dog ate a hot dog - we could have a hot-dog dog not-dog.

"We examined the hot dogs - wieners, frankfurters or sausages - because they are a widely consumed nitrite-preserved meat and because of the proposed linkage of such products with colon cancer," the study said.

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry at the above pun....

And for it to give you colon cancer!! How awful.

I always thought that it would be the corn dog that would give you colon cancer.

Half a bee, philosophically, must ipso facto half not be. But half the bee has got to be vis a vis its entity, you see? But can a bee be said to be or not to be an entire bee, when half the bee is not a bee, due to some ancient injury?

I have heard that said Nitrates are cancelled out/rendered harmless by citric acid, prompting the idea that washing down a hot dog with OJ will lower the cancer risk.

When I told this to a friend he pointed out that drinking orange juice while munching hot dogs would cause him to vomit profusely, thus rendering the cancer threat null and void anyway.

Keats. Not quite medieval, but that is the subject of the poem.

Now that's an avatar.

"She took me to her elfin grot,
And there she wept, and sigh'd full sore,
And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four."

As it happens, the 'La Belle Dame sans Merci' title is from a late Medieval poem by Chartier, an eminent poetry and prose writer of the 1400s.

Kiko

I just learned that when I looked it up. I only recall the Keats poem from college. Wrote a tiny itsy essay paper on it and really liked it. It fits the character that picture represents.

What attracted you to that poem, Kiko?

I first read it years ago as a freshman in college. I'm not sure why I picked it. The other one was nasty. 'Mental Traveler' by William Blake. One of those compare/contrast analysis assignments.

It's a bittersweet sort of poem. I think what I like about LBDSM is that both the knight and the fae lady seem to be able to understand one another.. nor to have any control over their 'relationship'. Neither one of them is to blame, but neither one seems to get what they want from the other. Nothing ever changes, eh?

There certainly are some constant themes in the literature of love and lust.

I have not had one word from her

Frankly I wish I were dead
When she left, she wept

a great deal; she said to me, "This parting must be
endured, Sappho. I go unwillingly."

I said, "Go, and be happy
but remember (you know
well) whom you leave shackled by love

"If you forget me, think
of our gifts to Aphrodite
and all the loveliness that we shared

"all the violet tiaras,
braided rosebuds, dill and
crocus twined around your young neck

"myrrh poured on your head
and on soft mats girls with
all that they most wished for beside them

"while no voices chanted
choruses without ours,
no woodlot bloomed in spring without song..." - Sappho, 7th century BC

When Munch was five, his mother died, and less than a decade later Edvard lost his older sister. While still a young man, he also lost his father and brother, and another sister developed a psychiatric illness.

Poor chap - no wonder his paintings are so full of anxiety, sadness and fear.

Still, he lived to a ripe old age. He painted this:

http://www.munch.museum.no/media/work440px/29.jpg

While hardly burdting with cheer, it is a much calmer work, characterised by a kind of easy and simple charm. The shine of the floor, the bright colours and pattern of the table cloth, and the warm glow of the room beyond - they are hopeful and contended, as if he found peace in his old age.

That is a pretty rough life! I agree about the refection in the floor, very well done.
The painting over all does present the thought that he came to terms with something, 'let go' perhaps?

I have to say that I'm not much of a fan of his work, tho. Regarding Expressionism, I'm pretty particular about what I like.

I guess I tend to lean towards the more abstract works:

Elbe Bridge I by Rolf Nesch.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/26/Rolf-Nesch-Bro-Over-Elben.jpg

The above is much more up my alley. Or:

Green Forest by Natalia Goncharova.

I have to say that my taste in art isn't that developed yet, but those are a couple that I found that piqued my interest in the Expressionist genre.

I remember years ago they had a guest on the Johnny Carson show who was 106 years old.

Johnny asked him if he had any special diet. The old guy said that since the age of 7 he has eaten a hotdog for dinner every night.

He said when he was a little kid he was very sickly and would puke almost everything his mother made for dinner.

Then one night she made him a hotdog and he didn't puke. He had a hotdog for dinner everynight since.
