You know bubbles. It is just air entrapped by some kind of liquid. We loved it when we were younger as we try to pop every single we see. A mere touch will explode it, so capturing the action in a photograph is a deal with timing.

Bubble photography amazes me. It takes a simple act of joy to the level of immense creativity. Tom Falconer’s flickr has a great set of bubbles in photos.

We are adults now, so we can eat balloons whenever we want.

I swallowed a coin. It is not accidental but I really put it into my mouth and sipped every irony taste of it. It is delicious; sometimes it could be a substitute to candies if you ran out of it.

The coin traveled down to my insides but got tucked within my esophagus, and that wasn’t a good feeling. I fought against my involuntary muscles to free it, but to no avail. Quickly, my brother handed me a banana, ate a slab of it but before taking it in, my brother slammed my back and I vomited it all, including the coin. Aaah, I’m amazed it worked!

My friend used to eat dog food, but he thought it was biscuits for humans. Nonetheless, he wouldn’t know the difference and it tastes alright. Another friend of mine loved herself so much, she couldn’t stop taking in what her body is supposedly shoving out. She bites her nails, early in morning, when conversing and while washing dishes. We all have our abnormalities.

One time, curiosity hit me and my friends. We were hanging out in a garden, two of us with Sprite and Pepsi cola in hand. This brilliant one blurted his idea of mixing two sodas with different plants around. And the rest of us are more brilliant in agreeing with it. We fetched one bowl and picked every representative flowers and leaves around the garden, ripped it to the smallest bits. We poured in the sodas and mixed it all, then you guess it! We took turns in drinking it, yum.

How about chewing straw, licking tissue paper, any other? Done that. What are the inedible things you’ve eaten/tasted in the past? Don’t you dare deny it,

I know some people dislikes it, and the dominating turbulent sound that comes with it. Sometimes you can anticipate its strike, but sometimes it just creeps you out without due warning. It’s feels like a giant is in a wrath.

It was normal to dislike it. After all, it can kill. Out of our instinct to live, we simply wanted to veer out of anything that kills.

Call me strange but I really like having lightning around. I like having storms around. I know it’s uncool to see people affected by typhoons, and that I don’t fancy. But lightning gives me thrill, and I really like thrilling experiences that makes me shout out I’m alive!

Even blackouts the lightning caused are tolerably a good thing. Every time it happens, it feels like a different kind of living without electricity. And that’s when I appreciate simplicity of life for a while.

Lightning is part of nature, and I like nature so it makes sense to me. And lightning is a good subject in photos. It’s a challenge to capture since it comes and goes within fracture of a second.

What do you feel about lightning?

A new movement wants to breed horses for human’s consumption.

The US congress lifted a bad that halts the funding of horsemeat inspections. Detract comments, of course, spurred afterwards. PETA is however not one of them.

PETA thinks that this ban purging would liberate the inhumane treatment for horses. Always controversial with their statements, they have gathered supporters and adversaries at the same time. PETA believes that the ban prompted cruel treatment and transport of horses to other horsemeat eating nations such as China, France and Mexico. So, they want to stop it through promoting the slaughter of them, in a closed warehouse, with the only choice of living to die.

I firmly believe that the re-opening of slaughter houses will not end the cruel treatment of horses when shipping to other nations. Consequently, it would induce more suffering for these robust but helpless animals. The inconvenient idea of slaughter houses is that you take the will of horses to experience living the way they are supposed to live.

Historians would agree that long ago, horsemeat was used as an essential source of human protein diet. But it became a taboo when horses became man’s companion.

Yeah, hunting horses is a natural occurrence of food cycle. At the very least, let the horses grow in the wild. Slaughter houses are against the nature because you breed horses just to die without fulfilling their innate purpose to live. So ultimately, it is against the animal rights.

Prior to the ban in 2007, slaughter houses are operating. But these slaughter houses, which are believed to save horses from cruelty, are sporting cruelty themselves to the horses as documented by the USDA even with federal inspectors surveying the area. Foreigners own most of rhese dirty houses; and they pocket the profit more than the economy. They also pose detrimental pollution to the environment. All of this is at the expense of America.

You just can’t compare the horses to chickens, turkey, pigs and cows, which are what we are consuming now. Horses take 4 years to mature; unlike, lets say chickens, which take weeks. Horses are also too famous as a symbol. They have done too much for humans across history – it moved us, it won us victories. We can’t afford a shift of perception from the immensely friendly horses into merely food.

Economically speaking, horse meats have high opportunity cost. They have a lot of uses to be put into waste– in transportation, in farms and their ecological contribution; and expensive for environment and materials for production.

But it will come down to us. Would you want to consume a horsemeat?
