Monster Mondays - 12 Great Monster Dads
Today a very special Monster Mondays looks at the famous fathers of monsterdom. As a soon to be dad, I'm interested in what each of these earthbound abominations can teach me about what makes a good parent, and what makes an unholy creature of the night.

Monsters are ranked in order of parenting skills.



12. Dr. Victor Frankenstein.
While I normally live my life by the motto WWVFD? when it comes to parenting the good doctor is about as bad as it gets. After creating a man out of corpses, he neglects to name it, insults its looks, abandons it, and then hunts it down to kill it. It's clear in the book and many of the movies that the monster sees Victor as his father, and since the Doctor never gave him a proper name, the family name of Frankenstein is absolutely as the only name of the creature. Frankenstein deniers say the only Frankenstein was Victor, a statement the Dr would find a relieving since it takes up his position of denying his creation its family and humanity. Frankienstein's Monster my ass. And if that wasn't bad enough, Dr. Frankenstein is no more capable of parenting when it's his own flesh and blood and not a reanimated corpse. Son of Frankenstein is alienated and spiteful of his father, who was always more a mad scientist then a family man.

The Dynamic Theory of Gravitation
I was just wondering if anybody out there worked for NASA at one time or another and could give me the equations for the theory linking mass and charge.  I would appreciate it, and it would save me a considerable amount of time and effort.  Directions to construct a time machine are welcome as well.

Monster Mondays: Tyrannosaurus Feathers
Today, Dapper Cadaver's Monster Mondays has some sad news. Word is pouring in from China of new Dinosaurs, fluffy and covered with delicate colorful plumage. First it was the Velociraptors, once proud ninja's of the dinosaur world, now just toothed roosters, complete with cocks-comb and dwaddle. More recent finds of fluffy dinos include several Tyrannosaurids. The greatest real monster to ever walk the earth is about to get a make-over in fabulous feathers. It's absurd. Imagine you're in a broken down jeep on Jurassic Park, you hear a thump, the water in your cup does that dino sensing thing that you keep cups of water in the car for, then you hear a deafening "Gobble-gobble-gobble" as the largest turkey you've ever seen steps out of the woods.



It hasn't happened yet. The feathered Tyrannosaurids the Chinese have discovered aren't the King beast, Tyrannosaurus Rex, just his scrawny uncles and cousins, but storm clouds are gathering on the distant pasts future. In 5 years time our children won't be able to tell Big Bird from Rex, and in 10 years time I wouldn't be surprised if we stopped calling Tyrannosaurs, Drommeosaurs, and Oviraptors "Feathered Dinosaurs" and started calling them "Toothed Birds." It must be stopped. If we can make Pluto a planet again through through the shear force of nostalgia, then science be damned, we can keep TRex scaly and terrifying. Join me!

The idea of wearing feathers sickens T Rex's only living relative, Godzilla.



But Godzilla may not be the only surviving radioactive mutant T Rex for long, apparently, one of the scientists who worked on Jurasic Park (I knew it was a true story!) is working on genetically engineering Chickens to give birth to mutant chicken-osauruses. I couldn't make this stuff up.

Kids need scary monsters to eat there smaller toys and to team up with Batman in kids crayon drawings, to fight cowboys, give King Kong a run for his money, and, scientifically speaking, be 51% MOTHERFUCKER, 49% son-of-a-bitch.


Will T-Rex still be the motherfucker we love and fear if he goes from this to this?



In closing, I would like to once and for all establish T-Rex as the scaly Tyrant King of Pimps by giving the people what we always wanted- Tyrannosaurus Sex



If you'd like to support the keep T-Rex scaly movement, you can help by buying a Tyrannosaurus skeleton.

Monster Mondays: The Mysterious Lemur Boy of Qatar
Today's Dapper Cadaver Monster Monday comes from a hot tip that came out just this weekend. The English language "Gulf Times" ran a translation of a Qatar story that featured this creepy photo, and the following text



"A mysterious figure resembling a human being was sighted on the Doha Corniche’s parking lot, according to a report published in a local Arabic daily.
The report is based on the statement of an Arab expatriate lady who said she had seen the strange figure near the Oryx statue while walking in the area.
Quoting the woman, the daily said she took a picture of it in spite of being terribly frightened.
“She was very soon surrounded by a large number of people who also attested to the fact of what she had seen . But it suddenly disappeared out of their sight when they tried to go near it,” the report added."


Some have speculated it's an escaped Aye-Aye, a kind of hideous lemur native to Madagascar but known to have hilarious adventures adventures in other parts of the world thanks to their anthropomorphic penguin pals.



Or is the creature a Canadian made genetically engineered living toy? Find out after the cut

Monster Mondays - Dolichocephaloids

Todays Monster Monday from Dapper Cadaver travels down the spine of the Americas to Peru, circa 2000 years ago for a kind of person bizarre and real, the Dolichocephaloids or Peruvian Coneheads. There is currently a video going around getting a lot of attention saying they were found in Siberia. This video is wrong, they are from Peru.


What we do know about the Dolichocephaloids is limited, what we believe about them is vast, and what we don't know about them is enormous.

What we do know - These guys had really long squash shaped heads. They were human. They lived in Peru roughly 2000 years ago. There were a lot of them.

Most had brains the same size as other humans (1400-1600cc) others had larger brains, up to 2000cc or 2 liters. If you want to experience how much larger that is get a human skull and fill the brain case up with soda. Empty a whole 2 liter bottle. Whatever spills on your desk is how much bigger their brains are then ours.

Monster Mondays - Axolotl

axolotl precioso, originally uploaded by girl next door ...

In the canals beneath Mexico City and in the lake that surrounds it lives the Axolotl or "Water Monster." It is an ancient race of up to 2 ft long salamander that Aztecs say are the direct descendent's of Xototl, the dog headed god of Death. I think they look more like pokemon with their cartoonish eyes and mouths and anime style external gills.


In 1998 the waters of Lake Xochimilco held 1500 axolotl per square mile, when surveyed this year it was a mere 25 per square mile. Scientists are now saying this otherworldly creature may only have five years left on the planet before it succumbs to extinction.

Top 14 Real Life Mad Scientists

laboratory essentials, originally uploaded by Boju.

WARNING: This article contains images and material that may be upsetting to some readers. While Dr. Victor Frankenstein is the epitome of the movie Mad Scientist, his experiments in reanimating the dead are positively tame compared to some of the real life beaker jockeys who earn the title. For starters, Dr. Frankenstein's victims were already dead, and were criminals to boot. The most common victims of mad science are innocent animals.

With that said, let's get mad!

13. Dr. Thomas Park.

Dr. Thomas park studies unusual sensory perception amongst mammals, which means his research is dedicated to the creepiest of creatures - Bats and Naked Mole Rats. While we all know bats are the air born form of vampires, many people have not been exposed to the shivering pink mass of flesh and teeth that live like a termite and look like an abortion.
MAD SCIENCE EXPERIMENT: Mole rats cannot be burned with acid.
""Their insensitivity to acid was very surprising," Park told LiveScience. "Every animal tested — from fish, frogs, reptiles, birds and all other mammals — every animal is sensitive to acid." Was Park just throwing acid on a random assortment of creatures to test his theory that they hate it? And what did he do once he discovered mole rats couldn't be burned? He genetically engineered a cold sore that would make them burnable again.

12. Dr. Warren Thomas

Warren Thomas is a scientist who did a lot of acid in 1962. So much so that he thought it would be a good idea to dose an Elephant with LSD. The elephant, named Tusko, died in almost immediately. He claimed in his defense he didn't expect that result, saying he had done plenty of acid himself and that the drug produce no ill effects. What he did expect was the elephant to fly into a psychotic rage, much better right?

11. Dr. Robert Cornish

Robert Cornish is a scientist who, in Berkley, CA, 1930, managed to resurrect 2 dead dogs by placing them on a seesaw to circulate the blood and injecting them with a mixture of adrenalin and anticoagulants. Not surprising he was able to find a human volunteer for his experiments with a man condemned to be executed, and the state denied him permission for fear he could do it.

Lamarkian Evolution is fact, just obscured by popular opinion and uneducated people. The real psuedoscience is scientists who take popular opinion and unverified texts as fact.

Gravity
I believe that Earth is slowly compressing. As it does, it squeezes out or displaces the aether, shooting it outward away from its center. The motion of this aether as it rushes towards the heavens actually pushes back on physical things not attached to the ground. Thus the feeling of being pulled towards the Earth. The more mass an object has, the more this event affects said object.

Thoughts?

Free Energy
So what's this all about really? I mean there is no such thing in this world as free. Now there are folks yammering about Free Energy. Just because Tesla stated he could power people's homes for FREE 100 years ago, everyone thinks they can do it now. It can't be done!

I say this, asside from the common law of the conservation of energy, because Tesla probably was able to master the art. Hell, he was the one to create it. But there are certain aspects that he came up with that should not be taught in schools. It should not be common knowledge. There is a special dynamic to electrical energy that we do not yet understand. Take the Tesla Howitzer for example. Or Tesla's fuelless Pierce Arrow. The keys to a technological utopia lay buried in work over a century old.

Conversation Piece
I am still alive and I thank you for your concern. I suppose there won't be much discussion in this room if there isn't a topic to discuss. So, here is a theory that can be discussed, agreed with, shot down, whatever. Just let me know what you think.

There exists in all parts of the universe a sea of energy. Some call it Aether or Ether, however as long as one could imagine this field in 3 dimensions and understand it would have behaviors like all three states of matter. (I say three because I think plasma is more of an effect than an actual state.)

Now imagine you are viewing a point in space that is infinitely specific as far as its 3-dimensional location. At that precise point, there exists the source of a disturbance. Imagine either a mini sun, a plasma ball like what is sold at Spencer's Gifts in the mall, or any other spherical object of which the surfaces constantly in erratic motion.

Now, think about the area where the surface waveforms are wildly moving, as well as the field of Aether surrounding this point. What if the waves formed in the Aether, created by the compressing and decompressing of the Aether itself by the disturbance form this point, is so high of a frequency and so constant of a pressure that it appears to be solid or physical. It would be almost like the magnetosphere to our solar wind, or the heliopause to the cosmic energy flow. A defined border, if you will.

This 'physical' object now exists where once there was nothing. Also, suppose that, because this physical object obtains all of its characteristics from the wave patterns of the source disturbance, there could also be stray waves that flow out from the 'physical' surface of the new object. These stray waves are also pushing against or through the Aether. The Aether itself would want to remain as stable as possible, so it provides resistance to the outward flow of the ripples. The only other place the ripples could go would be back into the 'physical' object and the source of this disturbance. Hence you have the beginnings of an electromagnetic field.

Now assume there are multiple points of infinite precision in space at which are sources of a disturbance causing a wave effect in the Aether that creates the appearance of a physical object. The wave patterns forming the 'physical' surface and even the enveloping field would have to have uneven aspects about it. Different pressures and vectors, in a sense. These could be what promotes the bonding of these particles together.

If this is true, then you could have waveforms that create the nucleus of an atom. Perhaps there are no such things as actual protons, electrons, and neutrons, but rather positive points, negative points, and dead zones all within these wave forms. They attach to others as their emitted field wants to flow back to the point of least resistance and greatest stability. Imagine how that magnetic, gravatic field could be amplified with the collection of hundreds, thousands, even hundreds of billions of these points amassed together.

We and all we see around us are simply wave forms or the harmonics of such, it since we perceive things with our seeks, organs that turn light waves into signal, we can not intuitively perceive things as they truly are. Perhaps everything is an energy and has its own aura. Perhaps, should this be true, it is a way to legitimately combine the philosophies of physics and metaphysics. Imagine what could be done if we could learn how to manipulate things on levels other than the physical level.

Traveling through space at luminal or even superluminal speeds would become possible because we would then know how to travel using the fields of objects and the Aether itself as a medium. I believe that light only travels as fast as it does because of the resistance of the Aether. Once we can move the Aether out of our way, it would lead to a whole new level of Aerodynamics. We could jump to other planets and stars as the commonly known electron jumps orbits/levels.

What say you?

And then there was one...
In order for there to be a community, there really needs to be more than one (and preferably more than two) people to talk about stuff. Science stuff. Really smart sciencey kind o' stuff. Y'all too chicken to be smart? Don't wanna be slapped like a nerd? Huh?

Come on, people! Get in touch with your inner quantum-physicist!

Finally! A place to rant, discuss, argue, and share some of the more outlandish and crazy ideas floating around out there. It should never be looked down upon when a person brainstorms beyond conventional guidelines. The strangest thoughts are most likely true, but just have not yet been shown to be.
