Hunyad Castle

September 29, 2010

Horribly creepy and welcoming at the same time!
1

Now located in Hunedoara, Romania, the Hunyad Castle was part of Principality of Transylvania, and it’s believed to be the place where Vlad III of Wallachia (commonly known as Dracula) was held prisoner for 7 years after he was deposed in 1462.The castle is a relic of the Hunyadi dynasty. It was built in Gothic style, but has Baroque and Renaissance architectural elements. It is a large and imposing building with tall and diversely colored roofs, towers and myriad windows and balconies adorned with stone carvings.

Tibet’s Potala Palace

September 26, 2010

Just incredible.
pp

Perched upon Marpo Ri hill, 130 meters above the Lhasa valley, the Potala Palace rises a further 170 meters and is the greatest monumental structure in all of Tibet. In 637 Emperor Songtsen Gampo decided to build this palace on a hill, and the structure stood until the seventeenth century, when it was incorporated into the foundations of the greater buildings still standing today. Construction of the present palace began in 1645 during the reign of the fifth Dalai Lama and by 1648 the Potrang Karpo, or White Palace, was completed. The Potrang Marpo, or Red Palace, was added between 1690 and 1694; its construction required the labors of more than 7000 workers and 1500 artists and craftsman. The Potala Palace was only slightly damaged during the Tibetan uprising against the invading Chinese in 1959. Unlike most other Tibetan religious structures, it was not sacked by the Red Guards during the 1960s and 1970s. As a result, all the chapels and their artifacts are very well preserved.

Werd x Dogs

September 26, 2010

scr

A couple of days ago, Werd, his homie Tyler and myself found ourselves debating the cleanliness of a dog’s mouth. I always knew a dog’s mouth must be clean because I learned somewhere that their licks could help heal cuts and scratches. Tyler, however, started to sway my “ol’ wives tale” thinking. Werd followed up 3 days later with this message:

Dogs mouths tend to be open a great deal of the time. More air circulates through the mouth and tounge it kills most microbes and bacteria that like darker, damper conditions.

They also dont eat the crap we do, they dont get as much stuff stuck in there teeth. If they only eat hard kibble they will have a cleaner mouth than yours.

Actually on discovery channel Myth Busters show they did a test on dogs mouth compared to humans and the dog was something like 65% cleaner than the humans.

Addition Info: Dogs Saliva have anti bacterial make up that clean the teeth and tounge when ever they begin to salivate. Its not a wivestale actually, its a documented treatment of the poor and homeless (street beggars) in biblical times. Those people too poor to get medical treatment would let the street dogs lick there wounds in order for them to heal… not gaping wounds but little cuts, scrapes, soars, blisters. NOW a days we have more antiseptic enviroment, those people were hardier than us. We probably shouldnt let dogs lick our wounds.

CATS on the other hand have Extremely dirty mouth, worse than ours. I would never let a cat lick a wound. Its due to the specilized tounge hairs and the make up of there teeth. Also there diet is more rodent based and therefore get more germs from there food.
