Link Love: A 2nd Earth, Cancer, Cupcakes and other interesting oddities

Oh and there’s always hope for those of you looking for a girlfriend or a wife.

These brothers were living in a cave, before they found out that they inherited 4 billion euros from a lost grandmother.

That’s $8 billion give or take!!!

My favourite part of the article:

“If this all works out it will certainly make up for the life we have had until now — all we really had was each other — no women would look at us living in a cave,” said Geza.

“But with money, maybe we can find a partner and finally have a normal life.”

A normal life?

I highly doubt it.

Watch your back and keep an eye out for the gold diggers who are going to come out of the woodwork, boys.

Who wants to eat a $750 cupcake?

If it was free, why not? 😛

Ever wondered what the formula is for a beautiful face?

Cracking the Genetic Code of Cancer


The scientists found the DNA code for a skin cancer called melanoma contained more than 30,000 errors almost entirely caused by too much sun exposure.

The lung cancer DNA code had more than 23,000 errors largely triggered by cigarette smoke exposure.

From this, the experts estimate a typical smoker acquires one new mutation for every 15 cigarettes they smoke.

Although many of these mutations will be harmless, some will trigger cancer.’

And only a couple more days until Christmas.

Here’s my virtual tree:


And my dream shoe wardrobe (just because of all the BOOOOOOOTS!)

(Yes it’s a shoe store. One of each shoe)


And this looks very inviting.

Minus the books.

(That baby grand piano is making my fingers itch)


With a little nook area like this.

I’d add a little table area so I could use a laptop.


Just in time for the holidays: a cute fur coat

Awwwww CUTIE!
