Happy Birthday, Professor Hex 
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Professor Hex blog. The year has passed quite quickly. I'd like to thank Brian over at WeirdWriter for showing me the ropes and getting me started. Brian's blog has been a little quiet lately, so hopefully he's working on a kickass novel. I would also like to thank Rikki for her redesign of this site and her continued support as a fellow blogger and friend. Be sure to visit her wonderful site at Poppet Projects. I'd also like to thank Hex Correspondents Ian Nyquist, TJ Speckman, and Elisabeth Reynolds. Thanks for your comments, leads, and encouragement. And finally, I'd like to thank all of my readers from around the world who visit this site. I hope you've enjoyed this last year as much as I have. Our world is truly a strange and mysterious place.

Good long article.

At 27, [Asahara] was arrested for running an illegal pharmacy and selling quack medicine. He opened his own yoga studio, where he focused on developing extrasensory abilities through ascetic training. He claimed a 1986 trip to the Himalayas awakened special powers within him such as levitation and the capability to pass through walls.

Nice article on the passing of Evelyn "$50,000 treasure chest" West.

Her chief claim to fame: her 39 1/2-inch bust that Lloyds of London insured for the $50K. She performed twice nightly in a striptease act at the Stardust Club on the old DeBaliviere Strip, just north of Forest Park and its Jefferson Memorial. In St. Louis in the '50s and '60s, her name was as familiar to male adolescents and young adults as that of Stan Musial, though, of course, the two inspired different forms of adulation.

Gallup on Blogs: Most Americans Have Never Heard of Them 
Media and political types are currently obsessed with the newfound influence of blogs, but is the trend being overhyped? According to a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, relatively few Americans are generally familiar with the phenomenon of blogging.

Extremely interesting article on the supposed influence of blogs.

Three-quarters of the U.S. public uses the Internet at work, school, or home, but only one in four Americans are either "very familiar" or "somewhat familiar" with blogs, Gallup reports.

More than half, 56 percent, have no knowledge of them. And even among Internet users, only 32 percent are very or somewhat familiar with blogs.

Chem-Phys murder fact, not fiction  

'Saint Death' Worshippers March in Mexico  
Great article on the 'Saint Death' cult

Many of the faithful recount miracles performed for them by Saint Death - depicted as a smiling female skeleton known as our "Our Little White Girl," the right-hand servant of God.


The faithful regard La Santa Muerte as an angel or saint who only kills based on God's orders. "It's better to make her you're friend," Almanza noted.

I'll bet.

Stick insects latest craze in weird pets 
First foxes and now giant stick insects.

Speaking of "must have" pets for the wealthy, can you imagine Paris Hilton carrying one of these things around?

Baby Foxes Going to the Dogs 
Unbelievably cute domesticated Russian foxes, with adorable pic.

So, how long until the pet fox becomes the de riguer pet of the wealthy?

Link found at boing boing.

Young foxes, or kits, scamper in a cage in Siberia, Russia, where they are part of a 45-year research project to domesticate foxes. Each generation has been selectively bred for tameness - fearlessness and nonaggression toward humans. By now the foxes in the project behave like pet dogs, barking and wagging their tails at humans.

Task force launched in Lefkow slayings 
A possible link between the slayings of a federal judge's husband and mother and the conviction last year of a white supremacist who tried to have her killed is one of several facets an investigative task force will pursue, Chicago officials said today.

Lefkow's life has been threatened before. White supremacist Matt Hale, the self-proclaimed "Pontifex Maximus" of the World Church of the Creator, is to be sentenced next month for plotting her murder. See this Chicago Tribune article for more details.

Investigators have described it as ritualistic slaying that has the Toledo Diocese looking into claims of satanic sex abuse by priests. Robinson, who is free on bond, is scheduled to go on trial Oct. 17.
