Jacob's Ladder / human spark gaps

Horned hand, about the signs of the horns (aka “Devil’s Horns” aka “the Goat” aka “Satan Fingers”):

Ronnie James Dio was known for popularizing the sign of the horns in heavy metal. He claimed his Italian grandmother used it to ward off the evil eye (which is known in Southern Italy as malocchio). Dio began using the sign soon after joining the metal band Black Sabbath in 1979.-wikipedia full article.

Though not necessarily the first to ever use [horned hand gestures] in a “rock” setting, [heavy metal singer Ronnie James] Dio was without question the one who turned it into a popular symbol. So while legions of rock fans test their metal (as it were), they are also unconsciously forming an enormous protective shield against the power of the evil eye. The next time you feel the uncomfortable gaze of a stranger and fear the wrath of the evil eye, perhaps the safest place to go is your nearest heavy metal venue.

Spark gap

A spark gap, can be seen between and around the " \,,,/ "(ref) in the picture above. Citation from "A spark radiates energy throughout the electromagnetic spectrum. Nowadays, this is usually regarded as illegal radio frequency interference and is suppressed, but in the early days of radio communications (1880–1920), this was the means by which radio signals were transmitted". If you want to find out which \m/ , see the full article.

ref: ASCII emoticon, sometimes appears as " \m/ ", that is a depiction of one or two human hand(s) with palms oriented toward the counter's face, with specific ranks of finger digits raised, it represents the sign of "horns", other extended variants are: " \m/(>.<)\m/ " and " bd(OoO)bd ". Got it? goo d(._.) ).

Human spark gaps

Human spark gap, "Jacobs ladder".

Human spark gaps are not uncommon. Some humans have the ability and capacity to generate and concentrate enough electricity directed towards the edges of their finger digits that sparks emerge between the edges of the digits or transfer electricity to objects, enough to light a small light bulb. How does this work? Almost all of our cells are capable of generating electricity. Everything we do is controlled and enabled by electrical signals running through our bodies. As we learned in intro physics, everything is made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have a neutral charge, and electrons have a negative charge. When these charges are out of balance, an atom becomes either positively or negatively charged. The switch between one type of charge and the other allows electrons to flow from one atom to another. This flow of electrons, or a negative charge, is what we call electricity. Since our bodies are huge masses of atoms, we can generate electricity. Human spark gaps are often recorded during Hard Rock/Metal Performances and horned hand spark techniques are often associated with heavy metal music.

Print of the flag that I designed once, look for "donated by Edwin" on The website of Mr. Chris Whitten is devoted entirely to the Gadsden flag, the symbol of American independence and freedom, Mr. Whitten started his site and blog in 2001 for other fans and as a way to help keep the spirit of the symbol alive.

Central Question: Are.there.*any*.statues.of.that?

>> YES.

  • Sun Temple, Konark, Orissa, India, Asia.

  • Tiger on elephant statue at khandoba temple at ambad jalna maharashtra India Asia

  • It gets better.

"Elephants express a wide variety of behaviors, including those associated with grief, learning, allomothering, mimicry, play, altruism, use of tools, compassion, cooperation, self-awareness, memory, and language.Further, evidence suggests elephants may understand pointing: the ability to nonverbally communicate an object by extending a finger, or equivalent. All indicate that elephants are highly intelligent; it is thought they are equal with cetaceans and primates in this regard. Due to the high intelligence and strong family ties of elephants, some researchers argue it is morally wrong for humans to cull them The Ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, once said that elephants were "the animal which surpasses all others in wit and mind".- wikipedia article


The owls are not what they seem.

Then there's this fanart (below) of Ms. Amanda F. Palmer that I once made.. and oh deer, they loved it at the AFP office, as tweeted once by them.

It is a delicate position, spin the bottle... __link__ to that song IFF you see the tiger (else skip forward).

Amanda F Palmer __link__ is such a talented lady, I've know her work since the Dresden Dolls. She's now married to the author Mr. Neil Gaiman __link__. Neil Gaiman had this project called 8in8 with a song explaining why it is so hard to hang around with people like Joan of Arc. Here's a __link__ to the video and there are 3 young tourists from Utrecht :) Utrecht? begging for it, Mr. Gaiman...?

(not by me) this is only one cup. Neil Gaiman at the Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture 2015.

Too bad I didn't get to finish my AFP paper chess-pieces project that I designed. I only designed the queen.

Here's something that found it's way printed on clothes, this was for a performance of Arkona at some festival. It's a messy mesh of various images which includes parts of the artwork of Zdzisław Beksiński. I really, really tried to use GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, to achieve this, because I'm a believer and survivor I don't give up easily, but Gimp was pushing me to the limit, made me begging on my knees. I ended up with some real quality software to get the job done, damn good engineered software if I might say so, a rock solid program that didn't crash on me while moving layers. Some software is just worth owning and buying en enjoy using. Photoshop for instance. Here's a link to
