Trees that smell like semen


As you may know, if you follow my Twitter updates, I recently complained that Hyde Park smells of semen all day, especially around the Serpentine. I cycle through there morning and evening and endure more or less endure the stench, but had very few people believe my plight.

For days I thought something perverted is happening near the serpentine, but thanks to a work colleague, I found out that it’s actually true.

Apparently the Bradford Pear and a few varieties smell strongly like spunk when in bloom.
Here is a picture, unfortunately it’s not the most brilliant quality:
Although the wikipedia article does not mention the smell, there are plenty of other sources on the net that do mention it, plus, it’s on Y!Answers.

I read that this pear tree is preferred in urban areas, because it grows higher and not so wide as the average pear tree.

On the other hand, I wonder why the park authorities didn’t plan ahead for this and chose to use other trees use that don’t smell like the jizz?

A new post!

After month of quiteness… A new post.

As always, I’m rather busy at work, I have a new laptop after my old one was stolen and I have experimented around with different operating systems.

Computer-wise I’m now running an ubuntu system and I have to say that I’m quite pleasantly surprised… Apart from my sound-card, the hardware is sorted. I can’t very well use USB devices in Windows which is annoying, but I think I can live with that for the moment.

I’ll be working on the design of the blog in the weeks. And I will see what else I got time for. I see if I can blog some more, maybe add different themes

rapebear (or: how to write screenplays. badly.)

congtratulations to jeremy slater and dan whitehead, probably the funniest blog i have seen so far:
how to write screenplays. badly.

it was last year mid-summer, when i discovered the screenplay follow up call to “rapebear” – the bear that rapes. i laughed so hard that even a year later i feel that this blog needs to be revisited by as many people as possible.

You can find the rapebear story right here!

Great site about Redlichkeit: [but only in German language :( ]

Some years ago, when the internet was still young and some people though it was only made for exchanging pornography and hack into banking servers, I found this really amusing website.

It’s the only link that I have kept for years. I’ve stumbled accross it in the sad year of the lord 1999 when Helmut Kohl’s era ended and 8 years of depressing socialism plagued the land of Germans. the here author claims to be incapacitated – meaning he is not allowed to manage his own money, or vote (or be alone with children)

Note, that it is hosted on Geocities (and it’s still live!!!):

Werden Sie züchtig und keusch!

Lieber Fußgänger, Sie haben gerade von einem redlichen Menschen einen Flugzettel in die Hand gedrückt bekommen und fragen sich nun, was das soll. Bitte nehmen Sie sich kurz Zeit, den Zettel durchzulesen und besuchen Sie danach meine Internetzseite.

Es stört Sie

  • daß ältere Menschen die Internetzsprache nicht verstehen können, da sie aus wahllos zusammengewürfelten Wörtern deutscher / englischer Sprache besteht?
    (Bsp. e-Mail [e-Brief], Internet Explorer [Internetz Erkunder])
  • daß manche Menschen Sie lapidar mit “Hallo” begrüßen, oder mobile Telefone benützen, obwohl die Strahlung lebensgefährlich für alle anderen ist?
  • daß Rauchen und Alkohol immer noch nicht verboten sind?
  • daß es Menschen gibt, die sich nackt im Internetz oder gar in der Öffentlichkeit präsentieren?
    (Bsp. FKK-Strände, Schmuddelseiten)
  • daß es im Internetz immer wieder Menschen gibt, die ihre Aggressionen an guten Menschen auslassen?

Oder haben Sie gar selbst Probleme, ein züchtiges Leben zu führen? Das ist kein Problem. Besuchen Sie meine Internetzseite, denn ich lebe vor, wie man gut und züchtig ist und sich so auch noch viele Freunde verschafft!
Ihr Reinhard Pfarrpfeifer
