Wasp attack!

Seriously, I don't know how I didn't just get stung. This little fellow was none too thrilled with a flash going off inches from their face. I caught it in some paper towels and now its's flying free outside. Wasps sure are cool looking!

Does tongue splitting have a historical basis?

Absolutely — tongue splitting, known as "Khechar Mudr" is a part of Hatha and Kumbhaka Yoga where the tongue is split and then "milked" until it is long enough to be turned back inside the mouth to the epiglottis, where it is used in breathing excercises, the goal being to become aware of only the internal. Yogins that practice these rites believe that it allows them to be absorbed "into God" (that is, becoming conjoined with the universal soul, an experience that is also common in suspension and other body rites).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
