Thought for the day

"I just wonder what it would be like to be reincarnated in an animal whose species had been so reduced in numbers than it was in danger of extinction. What would be its feelings toward the human species whose population explosion had denied it somewhere to exist.... I must confess that I am tempted to ask for reincarnation as a particularly deadly virus." -- Prince Philip, in his Forward to "If I Were an Animal" - United Kingdom, Robin Clark Ltd., 1986.

Here's a strange relic from the past: a 1979 calendar dedicated to cocaine. Yes, you read that right, for cocaine. While the substance was illegal, it was not considered so bad (and it was common in magazines to advertise cocaine gadgets). Each month's photo shows the coca plant at a different stage of its transition to cocaine powder, from its source in the Andes to its destination as a Christmas gift, and of course, users enjoying it. Months are accompanied by quotes about cocaine from various sources. A brief history of cocaine and a chronology of history from AD 900 to 1979 are also on the front. The calendar was published by Red Dog Productions in San Francisco. And, look at the font style of the calendar title... Does it sound familiar?
