Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) believed that Jupiter was the hemp capital of the universe….
“Our moon’s function, Huygens reasoned, was to aid mariners in navigation. If jupiter has four moons, there must be many mariners on that planet. Mariners imply boats, boats imply sails, sails imply ropes and ropes imply hemp.”
Quite the leap of faith wasn’t it? Hemp can be used for many other things besides making rope. How about these sneakers?
Hospital emergency room staff often say they see more accidents when there is a full moon. About 18 months ago, the Sydney Morning Herald reported on a study in Colorado which found significantly higher incidents involving animals at this time of the month also.
“But at least some of the increase in veterinary patient admissions attributed to a full moon is quite possibly due to the influence of the moon on the owner, rather than on the pet.
“We also see more eccentric [pet] owners when there’s a full moon,” Allison says. “It might be someone who counts the biscuits that their cat eats every day and has come in because the cat has eaten two less.”
