Thursday 19 June 2008: Heidi and Sarah are fruit eating fiber freaks with transit problems today....

Sarah says:
My intestines have gone mad. Seriously. Not good. Not good. Not good at all folks. I won't tell you more. You know enough. But Heidi and I are still enjoying fruit and had a good and sunny fruit break this afternoon.

Two interesting articles you should all know about!

This one is about feet that are washing up on shore in Canada! Six so far in sport shoes!!! It's a crazy story. So weird. I have to find out where these feet are coming from! Whose poor feet are these? The article says they could be related to: "organised crime, boating accidents - even the 2004 Asian tsunami "!!!!!!! Crazy!!
"Another human foot encased in a running shoe has been found on the shores of British Columbia in Canada, the second this week and the sixth within a year.
Like four of the others it was a right foot, a police official said. "
And this article my dad sent me from The New York Times about a guy in Mons called Paul Otlet who came up with the idea of the "web" in 1934!!!! There is a museum in Mons in Belgium called Mundaneum about all this, which now I really want to go visit. You can read further about it in English via this link as well.
"In 1934, Otlet sketched out plans for a global network of computers (or “electric telescopes,” as he called them) that would allow people to search and browse through millions of interlinked documents, images, audio and video files. He described how people would use the devices to send messages to one another, share files and even congregate in online social networks. He called the whole thing a “rĂ©seau,” which might be translated as “network” — or arguably, “web.”"
All very interesting!
