Electrocharge Your Life. Also, Top Ten Blogger Lies.

Cartoon by Hugh McLeod

I stumbled on this article about the top ten lies bloggers tell and at the top of it is this cartoon which captivated me.

Hugh McLeod has a website called Gaping Void which presumably has more art like this on it, but I’m afraid to go look, for fear I might see too many of his cartoons and fall in love,  and that would be disastrous, because he’s continents away from me and I haven’t built my steampunk dirigible yet.  Dammit.

Oh, and I never tell lies on my blog.

Interesting Wiki of the Day: Corrosion

Strangely beautiful pattern of rust and dirt

Corrosion is part of the natural process of decay. You can read more about how it happens here.

Also, my twitter pal Patrick Baty writes a lovely and informative blog about historical paints, and he has an article about corrosion in bituminous finishes.   It has pictures of unwrapped mummies!  And old-timey paint bottles! Do check it out.
