How to get your body skin peeled off ….

Your skin will peel of if you eat polar bear liver as it contains  Vitamin A in large quantities .Polar bears themselves  have a much higher tolerance for vitamin A.
As early as 1596, explorers returned to Europe with accounts of horrible illnesses resulting from the consumption of polar bear liver.

”  Illness severity depended on how much liver the explorers consumed, but symptoms typically included drowsiness, sluggishness, irritability, severe headache, bone pain, blurred vision and vomiting. Perhaps the most horrific symptom they encountered was peeling skin. While milder cases merely involved flaking around the mouth, some accounts reported cases of full-body skin loss. Even the thick skin on the bottoms of a patient’s feet could peel away, leaving the underlying flesh bloody and exposed. The worst cases ended in liver damage, hemorrhage, coma and death. ” : from the site .

So whats for lunch today ? Polar bear liver ??  😉

TUZ to replace TUX

In a survey that was conducted a year before by GroundWork Open Source, a maker of network and system management products , Mozilla Firefox mascot ranked 1 , followed by the BSD Demon BEASTIE . Tux stood third .

The hot news is that Tux would be temporarily replaced by TUZ , a tasmanian devil . This move is to bring awareness about the real tasmanian devils that are nearing extinction due to a facial tumour .

The tasmanian devil is meat-eating marsupial now found as only two in number in Australian island state of Tasmania. Linux creator Linus Torvalds has added a patch to the mainline Linux kernel, version 2.6.29, that provides a caricature of a Tasmanian devil wearing a penguin mask.

At the 2009 Penguin Dinner, Bdale Garbee “agreed” to shave his beard if enough funds were pledged toward the cause of protecting the Tasmanian Devil from extinction. On January 22, Linus Torvalds did the honors. Something between AU$35,000 and $40,000 was raised through this effort.
