Two-faced cat Frank and Louie or should we say cats.
His name is Frank and Louie, and he’s just entered the record books. He’s now the longest-living cat with two faces, also known as a Janus cat. Frank and Louie is a cat who was born with two faces and has earned a spot as the longest lived Janus cat in the new edition of the Guinness World Records. Janus cats, named after the Roman god with two faces, are extremely rare and seldom live more than a few days after being born. Often they die within hours. But Frank and Louie flourished. He turned 12 years old on September 8, 2011.
1st – 101010 (base two (binary)) equals 42 (base ten). Oddly enough, this is evenly divisible by the number of days in a week (7 (lucky)); and equally oddly, is also evenly divisible by the number 6 (which is generally designated as being unlucky). Both a Ying and Yang situation seem to be incorporated into this date.
10 (base ten) = 1010 (base two)
(base ten): 10 x 10 = 100
(base two): 10 x 10 = 100
The binary attributes of 101010 lends itself to use by the sciences of fractals (recursive geometric shapes) and chaos theory (the butterfly effect).
2nd – The number ten seems to give people that warm, fuzzy feeling:
“I won TEN thousand dollars!”
“I got TEN things done today.”
Then of course, there are the ever ubiquitous Top Ten lists. The top Top-Ten lists are (in no particular order):
Top Ten To Do, Top Ten Reasons, Top Ten Links/Websites, Top Ten Music/Songs, Top Ten Movies, Top Ten Headlines, Top Ten Jokes, Top Ten Mistakes, Late Show Top Ten, Top Ten Reviews/Lists.
3rd – Even when taking into account the differences between the Gregorian and Julian calendars:
Nothing significant appears to have happened a thousand years ago during the year 1010.
Nothing significant appears to have happened two thousand years ago during the year 10.
The Dark Ages spanned the 5th to 15th centuries (approximately 450 -1450).
4th – Artist Lee Cavaliere and designers Studio Condition are producing a one-day-only, live exploration of the number 10 at London’s Design Museum. Called “10:10:10”, the show starts at 10 minutes and 10 seconds past 10 on Sunday morning, and features all sorts of artworks, videos and exhibits, some created live, all based around the number 10. FORMULA has created 10 brand new pieces of music to accompany the event, each one lasting 100 seconds.
5th – More than 39,000 couples chose 10/10/10 as their wedding day — a nearly tenfold increase over the number of nuptials on Oct. 11, 2009, the comparable Sunday last year, according to figures gathered by David’s Bridal, the wedding superstore chain.
6th – 10:10 is a global warming mitigation campaign calling for a 10% reduction in carbon emissions in 2010. The project aims to demonstrate public support, apply pressure to policymakers to commit to national cuts, and inspire success at the United Nations climate change negotiations.
7th – “Throughout the Bible, specific numbers are utilized by God as well as Jesus in the New Testament,” said Connie Lemacks-Davis of Long Beach, Calif., who calls 10/10/10 a “once-in-a-lifetime date that could very well represent a divine time or a divine day on God’s calendar or God’s clock.”
8th – The White House has gotten into the 10/10/10 global plan, by ordering solar panels.
9th – The idea to make 10/10/10 an international day of political action came from Bill McKibben, author and founder of an organization called 350.
10th – Rumours have spread across the internet that a computer virus will strike computers at 10:10am on 10 October 2010 (or, if you prefer, 10:10 10/10/10).
It’s just the kind of scare that people love to murmur about, and share with their online friends, but I’m afraid it has no basis in fact.
New Evidence Suggests God Also Had Incredibly Busty Daughter.
excerpt from the theonion.com/articles/new-evidence-suggests-god-also-had-incredibly-bust,18133
ARABAH VALLEY, ISRAEL—In a discovery that biblical scholars say could alter our most fundamental understanding of Christianity, recently unearthed manuscripts suggest that in addition to His Son, Jesus Christ, God also had a daughter with absolutely humongous breasts.
The documents, found in a cave near the Jordanian- Israeli border and estimated to have been composed circa A.D. 200, recount the life, teachings, and death of Jesus’ well-endowed twin sister, Tammi of Nazareth. According to experts, the revelation points to a more dualistic conception of the divine, one with the male principle embodied in Jesus and the female principle represented by Tammi and her giant, heaving bazoingas.
“It’s a monumental shift,” said Boston College religion professor Paul Ferber, claiming that the newly discovered texts are more significant than the Gospel of Judas or the Dead Sea Scrolls. “Tammi has single-handedly undercut the male hegemony we’ve come to associate with the Christian faith, and added an important new dimension to the holy scripture.”
“Also, the various sources are in clear agreement that Tammi had the most enormous jugs in all of Galilee,” added Ferber, gesturing with his hands.”Seriously. Like, out to here.”
The existence of Tammi has caused scholars to reexamine the Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and replace it with a Quadrinity that includes the Daughter figure—though some, including Ferber, argue it should actually be reconstrued as “a five-way Quintinity, counting as two separate divine powers both of Tammi’s bodacious watermelons.”
According to the manuscripts, written in Greek on papyrus scrolls, Tammi led a ministry contemporaneously with her brother’s. Although she promulgated similar ideas concerning faith, humility, and forgiveness, and appeared to possess the same miraculous powers, Tammi seems to have had more difficulty communicating her message. In one passage, for example, her disciples repeatedly coax her into washing their feet, apparently for a better vantage point from which to observe her “heavenly radiance.” And while she, like Jesus, walks on water, the feat is described as almost disappointing to many onlookers, who had apparently hoped to see her run.
Professor Ned McCormick of Duke Divinity School said a complete understanding of Tammi’s teachings will require decades of research, with particularly close scrutiny given to the dozens of detailed illustrations.
Explaining the difficulty of interpreting the texts, McCormick cited a passage that reads: “Saith Tammi, ‘Consider ye this on the forgiveness of one’s enemies: Let he who would slander you sup at your table, let he who would inflict…I saith unto thee: Look upon mine eyes, which dwell within mine head, and not upon mine bosom, wherein no wisdom dwells.’ And then did Tammi snappeth her fingers together, saying, ‘Seriously; I doth mean it. Up here.'” ….

“MLM companies have been a frequent subject of controversy as well as the target of lawsuits. Criticisms have focused on their similarity to illegal pyramid schemes, price-fixing of products, high initial start-up costs, emphasis on recruitment of lower-tiered salespeople over actual sales, encouraging if not requiring salespeople to purchase and use the company’s products, potential exploitation of personal relationships which are used as new sales and recruiting targets, complex and sometimes exaggerated compensation schemes, and cult-like techniques which some groups use to enhance their members’ enthusiasm and devotion. Not all MLM companies operate the same way, and MLM groups have persistently denied that their techniques are anything but legitimate business practices.”
