    Mad Scientists! Evil Scientists! You Betcha

    Mad science! mad scientists! ever wondered where those terms come from. I'd say 1962 care of Warren Thomas, the then director of Lincoln Park Zoo in Oklahoma City. Well below is the 10 most wackiest experiments, some I'd call plain evil personally.

    Source Times Online October 31, 2007
    Elephants on acid - the 10 wackiest experiments of all time <---- Click here and have a read of the comments at end.

    When Warren Thomas, the director of Lincoln Park Zoo in Oklahoma City, approached Tusko the elephant with a syringe full of LSD in 1962, he thought that he was about to make a major contribution to science.

    Within a few moments of being injected, Tusko began trumpeting furiously, before keeling over as if he had been shot. An hour later, he was dead. “It appears that the elephant is highly sensitive to the effects of LSD,” Thomas and his colleagues concluded.

    Some 35 years after his demise, Tusko’s role in the history of science has been recognised with first place in a list of the ten wackiest experiments of all time, compiled for New Scientist magazine.

    He has also inspired the list’s author, Alex Boase, to assemble many more strange studies in a newly-published book, Elephants on Acid and Other Bizarre Experiments.

    “I started collecting examples of bizarre experiments years ago while in graduate school studying the history of science,” Mr Boase said. “I confess I had no profound intellectual motive; I simply found them fascinating.

    “They filled me with disbelief, astonishment, disgust and — best of all – laughter. With hindsight, perhaps there is a deeper message. These experiments are not the work of cranks. All were performed by honest, hardworking scientists who were not prepared to accept common-sense explanations of how the world works.

    “Sometimes such single-mindedness leads to brilliant discoveries. At other times it can end up closer to madness. Unfortunately, there’s no way of knowing in advance where the journey will lead.”

    The Top Ten
    1) Elephants on Acid

    A curiosity-led experiment from the 1960s, in which Warren Thomas decided to inject an elephant named Tusko with 297 milligrams of LSD — about 3,000 times the typical human dose — to see what would happen. The idea was to determine whether the hallucinogenic drug could induce musth — the state of temporary madness in which male elephants become aggressive.

    The result was a public relations disaster: Tusko died. The scientists claimed in their defence that they had not expected this to happen — two of them had taken plenty of acid themselves, they said.

    2) Terror in the Skies

    Another 1960s experiment, in which ten soldiers on a training flight were told by the pilot that the aircraft was disabled, and about to ditch in the ocean. They were then required to fill in insurance forms before the crash — ostensibly so the Army was not financially liable for any deaths or injuries.

    They were actually unwitting participants in an experiment: the plane was not crippled at all. It revealed that fear of imminent death indeed causes soldiers to make more mistakes than usual when filling in forms.

    3) Tickling

    In the 1930s Clarence Yeuba, a Professor of Psychology at Antioch College in Ohio, formed the hypothesis that people learn to laugh when tickled, and that the response is not innate. He tested it on his son — the family was forbidden from laughing in relation to tickling when he was present.

    Leuba’s wife, however, was caught some months later bouncing the boy on her knee while laughing and saying: “Bouncy, bouncy.” By the time the boy was seven, he was laughing when tickled — but that did not stop Leuba trying the experiment again on his sister.

    4) Headless rats and painted faces

    In 1924 Carney Landis, of the University of Minnesota, set out to investigate facial expressions of disgust. To exaggerate expressions, he drew lines on volunteers’ faces with burnt cork, before asking them to smell ammonia, listen to jazz, look at pornography or place their hands in a bucket of frogs.

    He then asked each volunteer to decapitate a white rat. While all hesitated, and some swore or cried, most agreed to do so — showing the ease with which most people bow to authority. The pictures, however, look quite bizarre. “They look like members of a strange cult preparing to offer a sacrifice to the Great God of the Experiment,” Mr Boese wrote.

    5) Raising the dead

    Robert Cornish, of the University of California at Berkeley, believed in the 1930s that he had perfected a way of raising the dead. He experimented by placing corpses on a see-saw to circulate the blood, while injecting adrenalin and anticoagulants.

    After apparently successful experiments on strangled dogs, he found a condemned prisoner, Thomas McMonigle, who was prepared to become a human guinea pig. The state of California, however, refused permission, for fear that it would have to release McMonigle if the technique worked.

    6) Slumber learning

    In 1942 Lawrence LeShan, of the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, attempted subliminally to influence boys into stopping biting their fingernails. While they were asleep, he played them a record of a voice saying: “My fingernails taste terribly bitter.” When the record player broke down, he stood in the dormitory repeating the phrase himself.

    It seemed to work: by the end of the summer, 40 per cent of the boys had stopped biting their nails. Mr Boese, however, has another explanation: "'If I stop biting my nails,’ they probably thought, ‘the strange man will go away.’”

    7) Turkey turn-ons

    Martin Schein and Edgar Hale, of Pennsylvania State University, devoted themselves to studying the sexual behaviour of turkeys in the 1960s, and discovered that the birds are not choosy. Taking a model of a female turkey, they progressively removed body parts until the males lost interest.

    Even when all that remained was a head on a stick, the male turkeys remained turned on.

    8) Two-headed dogs

    Vladimir Demikhov, a surgeon from the Soviet Union, revealed his surgical creation of a two-headed dog in 1954. The head of a puppy had been grafted onto the neck of an adult German shepherd. The second head would lap at milk, even though it did not need nourishment — and though the milk then dribbled down the neck from its disconnected oesophagus. Both animals soon died because of tissue rejection — but that did not stop Demikhov from creating 19 more over the next 15 years.

    9) The vomit-drinking doctor

    Stubbins Ffirth, a doctor training in Philadelphia during the 1800s, formed the hypothesis that yellow fever was not an infectious disease, and proceeded to test it on himself. He first poured infected vomit into open wounds, then drank the vomit. He did not fall ill — but not because yellow fever is not infectious. It was later discovered that it must be injected directly into the bloodstream, typically through the bite of a mosquito.

    10) Eyes wide open

    In 1960 Ian Oswald, of the University of Edinburgh, sought to test extreme conditions for falling asleep. He taped open volunteers’ eyes, while placing a bank of flashing lights 50cm in front of them, and attached electrodes to their legs that administered electric shocks. He also blasted very loud music into their ears.

    All three subjects were able to fall asleep within 12 minutes. Oswald speculated that the key was the monotonous and regular nature of the stimuli.

    Gibline giblink sounds pretty glib cultish and spammy

    Well Loopyplus1 has been quiet lately with some major family stuff happening offline. Here we are back and right on time it seems to check out a major Koolaid event in the form of giblink. Or known as gibline to others which resembles a real "hook em in" type of opportunity.

    The most annoying thing about this one is that on some forums I am a member of you get these new members signing up just to start gibline /giblink topics without reading or respecting the forum rules. Like how hard is it for them to do a search and see there is already topics for this program? Spammers they are nothing more or else they are feeling a little foolish and desperate now> That's what you get when you allow yourself to get hooked in by conference calls and gib operators. To the tune of $150?

    This Gibcult has a forum to go with it and I just took a quick look at who is online there. Many of the usual suspects you would find hanging around this type of fishing spot. I've read a couple of introduction type of reviews on the whole thing over at Nukblog They are a must read, a real heads up to what the go is here.
    The giblink forum has a very cultish scammish feel to it plus a lot of signatures promoting more so called Opps. Such crap as this ,
    What Are Your Plans In "sheltering" Your Income From The IRS Tax Collectors??

    I found that topic above doing a search of the usual koolaid laced cult words "bless" in this case Amazingly how many posts in this forum are all about "the poster" and their other opportunities. Just take a look at some of the signatures lol

    Hmm so who was at the top of the gibtree I wonder? ;) Checking the search engines it seems that someone got some play out of a video is giblink a scam.

    Well I haven't watched any video but I do know I'm reading often about many receiving gibspam which would be spam about giblink gibline or gibcult as it looks like being labelled.

    The word gibspam kinda fits doesn't it

    Norway : The Wind beneath the Moose

    Mylanta?? worth a try ;)


    Burping moose add to global warming

    From correspondents in Oslo

    August 23, 2007 08:52am

    A GROWN moose belches out methane gas equivalent to 2100kg of carbon dioxide a year, contributing to global warming, Norwegian researchers say.

    That is more than twice the amount of CO2 emitted on a round-trip flight across the Atlantic Ocean from Oslo to the Chilean capital Santiago, according to Scandinavian Airlines.

    "An adult moose emits about 100 kilograms of methane gas a year. But methane gas is much stronger than carbon dioxide, so to get the equivalent you have to multiply by 21,'' professor Odd Harstad at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences said.

    With an estimated 140,000 moose roaming Norway's forests, that is a total of of 294,000,000kg of CO2 per year.

    But Prof Harstad said that was no reason to begin killing off the entire moose population.

    "Moose have very important functions in nature. They are ruminants that eat the grass. If we don't have ruminants, we have too much grass and that changes the landscape and has consequences for the flora and fauna,'' he said.

    Prof Harstad said the figure of 100kg of methane gas was a rough estimate based on earlier calculations for beef cows in Norway.

    As is the case with cows and other ruminants, methane is produced from the microbes in the moose's stomach which help break down the roughage they eat.

    Because methane gas is stronger than carbon dioxide, it is considered even more harmful to the environment. Both methane and carbon dioxide are so-called greenhouses gases, one of the main causes of global warming.

    Allen promotes Australian Festival November 2007 at Greater Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida, USA.

    Loopyplus featured 91 year old Alan Waddell a little while back, here he is again.

    A perfect fit as a Wortley Street, Balmain, fence cuddles its tree friend.

    Alan is wearing a T-shirt kindly supplied by the wonderful people organising the Australian Festival - Celebrating The Land Down Under - to be held November 2-4 in 2007 at Greater Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida, USA. Their website is well worth a look. Alan is helping them promote both Australia and walking.


    In brief

    Alan Waddell was encouraged by his doctor to take up walking. After a while, repeating the same route every day became boring. So Alan Waddell decided to walk every street in his own suburb.
    In December 2002, this idea of walking every street was expanded to include neighbouring suburbs and so his odyssey began.

    Alan's site WalkSydneyStreets is primarily about an unusual collection of 815 photos of Sydney taken whilst walking every street, lane, bush track etc in 244 suburbs (so far) of Sydney. There have been over 1,068,000 pages viewed by over 348,000 visitors from 163 countries (latest new ones are Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Guyana, Iraq, Mali and Montenegro) - see Visitor Countries for full list.

    Below are a couple of Sydney Suburbs more colourful Murals from Alan's photos.

    Cats off the street price tag US$258 a month


    New home planned for cats (Shanghai Daily)
    2007-07-13 09:
    Cat lovers in Shanghai are preparing to rent a house in the city's suburbs for the street cats, after more than 800 cats were rescued last week from a truck to Guangdong Province.

    The, a Chinese cat Website, initiated the move and said the house will provide a more spacious home for street cats.

    "The house was originally a factory, and the rental is about 2,000 yuan (US$258) a month," said Tao Rongfang, an official with the Shanghai Animal Protection Association.

    "Volunteers and vets will go to the house to take care of the cats and sterilize them."

    Up to now, more than 30,000 yuan has been collected from net buddies for the rent and for living and medical expenditure for the street cats.

    Duo Zirong, last week's cat rescuer, who has more than 1,200 street cats at her home, will visit the house at the weekend, before deciding whether to move her cats there.

    Net buddies are also considering building a cat medical center and an adoption center in the downtown area.

    Condom testers to try out new positions

    Article from: AAP,23599,22024295-13762,00.html

    AN Australian manufacturer has called for applications for what it claims could be the world's best job – condom tester.

    Durex marketing manager Sam White said any Australian over the age of 18 could apply for one of 200 positions as a condom tester.

    The position is not paid, but successful applicants will receive a free $60 selection of Durex products and will be required to provide the company with honest feedback about the products' performance.

    One of the lucky 200 testers will win a $1000 bonus.

    Applicants must explain why they would make an expert condom tester, Mr White said.

    “With this job on your CV, it really will be a chance to brag to your mates about the special skills you possess, not to mention that your new role will work wonders with the opposite sex,” he said.

    “Who wouldn't want to have a chance with an actual authorised professional?”

    One thing's for sure - it's a job where employees won't mind taking their work home and burning the midnight oil.

    Fly in the hand is worth more than 2 on the wall

    Chinese city pays cash for dead flies

    By staff writers

    July 12, 2007 08:41am

    Article from:

    CHINA's recent obsession with public hygiene has reached new levels with a city setting a bounty on dead flies.

    Officials in Luoyang, a city of 1.55 million people, paid more than $125 for about 2000 dead flies during the campaign launch on July 1, Xinhau news agency said.

    Each fly is worth about seven cents.

    The payment scheme is the first of its kind in Luoyang, which is striving to earn the title of "state-level hygienic city".

    "I and colleagues believe it is the best way to push residents to do more for their living environment,' office chief Hu Guisheng said.

    ..the meek shall inherit the earth, a 6 foot plot above them

    One man's theology is another man's belly laugh.

    Sex should be friendly. Otherwise, stick to mechanical toys; it's more sanitary.

    How you behave toward cats here below determines your status in Heaven.

    Whenever women have insisted on absolute equality with men, they have invariably wound up with the dirty end of the stick. What they are and what they can do makes them superior to men, and their proper tactic is to demand special privileges, all the traffic will bear. They should never settle merely for equality. For women, "equality" is a disaster.

    Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful---just stupid.)

    Cheops' Law: Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget

    Small change can often be found under seat cushions.

    Money is a powerful aphrodisiac ... but flowers work almost as well.

    An elephant is a mouse built to government specifications.

    Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.

    Never try and teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

    There is no conclusive evidence of life after death. But there is not evidence of any sort against it. Soon enough you will know. So why fret about it?

    Most "scientists" are bottle washers and button sorters.

    A generation which ignores history has no past--and no future.

    A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits.

    History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.

    No state has an inherent right to survive through conscript troops and, in the long run, no state ever has. Roman matrons used to say to their sons: "Come back with your shield, or on it." Later on, this custom declined. So did Rome.

    Of all the strange "crimes" that human beings have legislated out of nothing, "blasphemy" is the most amazing---with "obscenity" and "indecent exposure" fighting it out for the second and third place.

    It is better to copulate than never.

    When the need arises -- and it does -- you must be able to shoot your own dog. Don't farm it out -- that doesn't make it nicer, it makes it worse.

    Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child.

    Never appeal to a man's "better nature". He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage.

    You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

    Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be expected -- here and there, now and then -- are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck".

    In a mature society, "civil servant" is semantically equal to "civil master".

    When a place gets crowded enough to require ID's, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel is that it made it possible to go elsewhere.
    A woman is not property, and husbands who think otherwise are living in a dreamworld.

    The second best thing about space travel is that the distances involved make war very difficult, usually impractical, and almost always unnecessary. This is probably a loss for most people, since war is our races' most popular diversion, one which gives purpose and color to dull and stupid lives. But it is a great boon to the intelligent man who fights only when he must---never for sport.

    Democracy is based upon the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something.
    Autocracy is based upon the assumption that one man is wiser than a million men. Let's play that over again, too. Who decides?

    What are the facts? Again and again and again---what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what "the stars fortell," avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable "verdict of history" -- what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

    Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.

    People who go broke in a big way never miss any meals. It is the poor jerk who is shy a half slug who must tighten his belt.

    A touchstone to determine the actual worth of an "intellectual" -- find out how he feels about astrology.

    You live and you learn. Or you don't live long.

    One man's "magic" is another man's engineering. "Super-natural" is a null word.

    Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.

    Exercising Generates Electricity.

    A Hong Kong-based renewable energy entrepreneur and the inventor of the idea, says an average person can produce 50 watts of electricity per hour.

    The serious exerciser's motto used to be, no pain, no gain. At Hong Kong's California Fitness centers, the new catch phrase might be, no sweat, no light. When club members use certain exercise machines, the energy they generate is turned into stored electricity. To make the fluorescent tubes in the studio's ceiling light up, they have to start pumping.

    Homer Simpson Reward For Safe Return.

    Reward offered for kidnapped Homer Simpson


    Posted Thu Jun 21, 2007 6:16pm AEST

    Cartoon character Homer Simpson has been kidnapped in Malaysia and Hollywood is offering a reward of 1,000 ringgit ($A346) for his safe return.

    Film studio Twentieth Century Fox announced the bounty after a 1.2-metre statue of Homer was stolen from a cinema display in a mall in the Malaysian capital.

    Motion Picture Association country manager Nor Hayati Yahaya says it was one of a set of outsize replicas of the family being used to advertise The Simpsons Movie, set for release in Malaysia next month.

    "This guy is really dumb, because he must know that in a mall there are lots of surveillance cameras," he said.

    "We got footage of his car, plate number, his face, everything."

    The New Straits Times newspaper published grainy closed-circuit TV pictures showing two men bundling Homer out of the mall before he was driven off in the boot of a car.

    Heavy metal officially classified as disability.


    Man gets sick benefits for heavy metal addiction


    A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover to supplement his income with state benefits.

    Roger Tullgren, 42, from Hässleholm in southern Sweden has just started working part time as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.

    Because heavy metal dominates so many aspects of his life, the Employment Service has agreed to pay part of Tullgren's salary. His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work.

    "I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap," Tullgren told The Local.

    "I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against."

    Roger Tullgren first developed an interest in heavy metal when his older brother came home with a Black Sabbath album in 1971.

    Since then little else has mattered for the 42-year-old, who has long black hair, a collection of tattoos and wears skull and crossbones jewelry.

    The ageing rocker claims to have attended almost three hundred shows last year, often skipping work in the process. Read full article

    Want Inspiration? In Sydney Nsw you will find it


    Want some inspiration to get up and live life? Go to WalkSydneyStreets where 92yr old Alan Waddell will give it to you in street loads. S ee the real Sydney Australia while your there. As someone that didn't listen to the docs advice Alan puts me to shame. Well never too late is it. You can send Alan a note to be added to his mailing list or just say G'day. I woke up a few hours after doing this to see he had personally answered my email. What a legend. Inspiration category.
    Do you have a friend living in Bondi? Birchgrove or maybe Concord just go to Alans index and have a closer look at what that suburb looks like. If your a trivia fan Alan has that as well.

    In brief
    Alan Waddell 92, was encouraged by his doctor to take up walking. After a while, repeating the same route every day became boring. So Alan Waddell decided to walk every street in his own suburb. In December 2002, this idea of walking every street was expanded to include neighbouring suburbs and so his odyssey began.

    Smorgasblog - Watching Watching

    Smorgasblogs Well it is like a smorgasbord full of blogs over at BloggingToFame.

    HINT HINT Fame Me

    Was this a new word "smorgasblog" a looplyplus1 created one? no Google is my friend and told me that Smorgasblog has been around for long time. Was thought of back in the day. Which day? well before yesterday the day back back and some more.

    2005 --

    Today VWorld is a SmorgasBlog

    Am I thinking loopy or is it like blogging is going back towards the beginning when there was communities like live journal, blurty and similar? Reading about the for and against "Technorati Favorites Exchange" debate makes no sense. Favoriting a blog to me just means that it's in your favorites. Duh duh. Not like you are going to buy X amount of advertising on it are you? If an advertiser is that dumb and clueless that they are going to come along and think WOOHOO this blog has 11500 people favorited it on technorati! Quick buy ad space, lets stick our useless E-book on "11500 ways you can blog for dollars" there! Well that's their fault isn't it? Seems some of the "serious bloggers" have their nose out of joint over this. Lucky loopy blog is not fixated on this. Smile it's Friday. Like truthfully how many "How to earn money while being a know it all expert" blogs can you read in one day. They all look the same after a while.

    Watching Watching you just never know do you? All the more reason to dress to shop, walk, jog eat or just amble along on lifes byways Plus you never know when your going to be thrown into the back of an ambulance Best knickers are a must.

    The party has been spoiled for some armchair tourists using Google's Street View - the all-seeing search giant has begun removing "objectionable" images at the request of users.

    Street View, which allows Google Maps users to zoom in to street-level for a 360-degree view of major US cities, caught the ire of privacy activists everywhere when it was unveiled late last month.

    Google's camera-equipped vans snapped the cities' unsuspecting inhabitants in all manner of unflattering poses. The most avid Google street tourists set up entire websites - such as and - just to aggregate the most amusing findings.

    But some people apparently didn't see the humour in having shockingly detailed images of their recent strip club visit or exposed g-string immortalised on Google Maps.

    Some have written to Google asking that certain images be removed. In these cases, Google replaces the offending photos with a "This image is no longer available" message over a black background.

    Already, Google's snaps of what appeared to be a crime scene have been taken down. The scene can still be viewed from a distance, but zoom in close enough and the screen goes blank.

    And the now infamous photo of a woman exposing her g-string as she leans over has also been removed.

    Images of a man entering an adult bookstore and another standing out the front of a strip club are still online for all to see, but their days could be numbered. READ MORE
