The secret ingrediant is almonds!

Back in March, I related that acording to Tim Leary's autohagiography, William James huffed nitrous and wrote, while high: "the secret of the universe is the smell of burned almonds."

Coincidence? I doubt it.

And on a related theme, this classic:


If you think Moon Unit Zappa and Dweezil Zappa got weird names, consider their siblings, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan Zappa and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa.

Dweezil's registered birth name was not Dweezil, because the hospital refused to register him under that name. But he had it legaly changed when he turned 5.
