Les "pouvoirs miraculeux" de la radioactivité Il fut un temps où l'on enveloppait les bébés dans de la layette enrichie au radium pour qu'ils aient bien chaud.

Leurs mères, très avant-gardistes, s'enduisaient le visage de crèmes de beauté «irradiantes» en buvant à la paille des sodas atomiques... En 1896, un savant français, Henri Becquerel, découvrit la radioactivité par accident, alors qu'il faisait des recherches sur la fluorescence des sels d'uranium. Encouragé par son ami Henri Poincaré, il cherchait à déterminer si ce phénomène était de même nature que les rayons X. C'est Marie Curie qui appelle cette bizarrerie scientifique la « radioactivité » et bientôt les Curie décèlent l'élément radioactif appelé radium, dont ils parviennent à isoler une petite quantité. Le radium deviendra pourtant une nouvelle potion magique (lire: "L'insensibilisation par le radium" dans la revue Le Radium n°3, mars 1904) que l'on vend sans plus de scrupules que les vieux remèdes de bonnes femmes.

The Zombie of Montclaire Moors Sculpture - DB383020. The Zombie of Montclaire Moors continues to be the highlight of my Halloween cemetery going on five years now.

The Zombie of Montclaire Moors Sculpture - DB383020

The quality is outstanding and he's held up extremely well. Storing him is easy due to his three piece construction. He's so realistic that many of my trick-or-treaters (the braver ones) have to touch him. This past year, I added rubber rats to chew on his ears which added a nice touch. Word has spread of my excellent haunt and I get double the Halloween visitors that my neighbors do. My daughter and I have had a wonderful time hiding him around the house, waiting for one or the other to discover him and scream. I only wish he had a female counterpart to add to the cemetery. We named him Sid after the mean boy in Toy Story. I would highly recommend him for your haunt or just for the fun of having him around the house.

And who can blame them? Easy money for not a lot of work? I'm guessing most, if not all of us would jump at the chance to do something like this. I know I would (hint to all you rich Japanese executives that need a "typical" American blogger to be the next face of your product). That being said... These spots can still be great fodder for awkwardness, looniness, and absurdity. . #21.

Year 4 - Ponies (1985-1986)

With more new new ponies appearing in 1985, than ever before, My Little Pony came in to 1986 with a movie, followed by a TV series, and even extra ponies as the year went on. This year marked the end of the round scented puffy stickers that came with each pony and replaced them with grape-scented body sticker in the shape of each pony.
