Hey everyone, come get your fresh, piping hot ferrets here today!
(Yes, I know, this probably has something to with iron, but leave me to my jetlagged japery.)
In other news, I visited my first ever topless-allowed European beach yesterday. As expected, it was infinitely less erotic than advertised by Hollywood. There’s a fascinating bell curve to be mapped between the relationship of young/gorgeous or old/alarming and likelihood to disrobe. Not that I’m criticizing people who are comfortable in their own skin; good for them. Bodies is bodies. I’m just amused by the difference between reality and the titillating myth engendered by an industry that thrives on pandering to the repressive tongue-wagging of the world’s most prurient industrialized society. Or whatever.
In any case, the sight that most intrigued me at the beach was the water here in the Canary Islands. How is it so blue? Do they just dye it every day like Chicago’s river on St. Patrick’s Day? It is simply stunning. I can see why Europe has warped this entire island’s economy to revolve around tourism.

Re: The sea. Canarias has active volcanoes – throwing a virgin into them every now and then surely does the trick.
Bob’s Burgers had an episode where the nude beach was all old people. Also an episode where old people were all in a swingers club… Now that I think about, probably one of the writers has a fetish. Or is old.
It’s awesome when Jeremy’s “throw away lines” are of this caliber:
“I’m just amused by the difference between reality and the titillating myth engendered by an industry that thrives on pandering to the repressive tongue-wagging of the world’s most prurient industrialized society.”
It’s a hardware store, although the literal meaning is somewhere along the lines of “iron-ery”.
Just in case you end up needing a hammer or something.
What a coincidence! Last weekend I met an astrophysicist in Florida who is using a telescope on the Canary Islands to observe the mid-infrared light from the accretion disk from black holes at the center of distant galaxies. He says the telescope is shoddy and has kept him waiting years for repairs so he can finally get his data and write his thesis. Maybe you saw this in person?
Silly Parish, what do you mean why is the water so blue? That’s just the color and texture the developers wanted to give to the water.
