Awaiting a delivery from Siberia

Feel free to post anything unrelated to wet shaving or men's grooming (I.e. cars, watches, pens, leather goods. You know, the finer things of life).

Awaiting a delivery from Siberia

Post by churchilllafemme »

OK, so I'm a sucker. But when my grandfather, an Iowa farmer, moved out to California to be near our family, he worked as a security guard at the L.A. County Museum of Natural History, where there was a great fossil skeleton of a woolly mammoth. I used to spend weekends with him and my grandma, and he would take me into the museum when it was closed to the public, and we'd poke around for hours looking at all the fascinating stuff. So this nostalgic junk is what I'm waiting for....

And it just occurred to me....If I got enough of these, I could have a mammoth hair brush made!

Cool. 8)
It's funny the power of such things in our lives just as you described.

I like the idea about the brush. I'm sure it would never wear out! :lol:

As far as I'm concerned, the mammoths can stay in the tar pits (and tundra permafrost) where they belong.

yeah, hold on to it long enough and with advances in genetics in the coming years you may be able to reverse engineer it from the DNA and then end up with a really cool pet. plus a nice sustainable source of ivory for brush handles.
Remember: this is all just wasted time and lives talking nonsense to strangers about pieces of metal, hair and chemical compounds.
