Brian Dettmer's Book Autopsies

Brian Dettmer searches high and low for antique and dusty books, he then sets about them with a knife and cuts them up.

There is method in his madness though. He creates the most magnificent and detailed works of art i have ever seen. They are simply unique and really quite beautiful.

Ashes To Glass - Turn Your Loved Ones Ashes Into Ornaments

The beautiful glass items you can see below have been made from dead people. Which kind of takes the appeal from them a little bit. But it's true. I found a company that will take the ashes of your dead loved one and turn them into a beautiful glass ornament of your choice.

I'm not actually convinced I would be too keen having my Grandmother or Grandfather hanging from the ceiling or sitting on the mantle piece.

Britney Spears Looking A Bit Tired And Run Down

Britney was snapped looking a bit cream crackered recently. One hopes she hasn't resorted to taking those horse tranquilisers again. She would have ennded up being entered for the Preakness Stakes the way she was carrying on with that nonsense.

It can't be the kids wearing her out, she made sure they don't live with her after her antics of two years ago. Having said all that, she is a sexy lil minx, fair play to her.

Nine Things Women Say

I posted a few of these here, but this list seems so much more accurate, I thought I would give the guys a warning about it.

1. Fine:
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2. Five Minutes:
If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3. Nothing:
This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with Nothing usually end with Fine.

4. Go Ahead:
This is a dare, not permission. Do not do It!

5. Loud Sigh:
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of Nothing.)

6. That’s Okay:
This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That is okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7. Thanks:
A woman is thanking you, do not question or faint. Just say: “You are welcome.”

8. Whatever:
Is women’s way of saying …

9. Don’t Worry About It, I Got It:
Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking “What is wrong?” For the woman’s response refer to #3.
