Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Save a Scarf, Ride a Vampire

This new ‘fashion scarf’ bugs the hell outta me. Since when has it become custom to wear a scarf- outdoor apparel- in a heated public area such as a mall or restaurant.  I blame the media, specifically, vampires. 

Ridiculous?? I think not. 

It seems that it could be the only reason a bunch of young woman would not want take off their scarf. I ruled out brain-freeze as the sugary slush drinks that usually induces brain freeze is forbidden in the female’s societal diet. I also ruled out a mass conversion to Islam as it seems the scarf is still the largest piece of fabric worn by these girls.
The fashion industry is now relying on the media portraying vampires as blood-sucking mutant creatures who live among us. In order to not have your blood sucked leading to the inevitable mutation into a vampire, you must purchase a scarf and wear it everywhere you go. The media is a powerful thing so kudos to the scarf industry for inventing vampires for more people to purchase a variety of colours and sizes of scarves.
I know I wasn’t supporting the scarf industry before. The only scarf I own was given to me, free, from the OLG casino the first time I went gambling. I still think scarfs are useless and I have thrown out all the other ones I have owned in the past.  I don’t need more than one to keep my neck warm when I am outside- I certainly don’t need one inside.
You’re welcome, readers, for opening your eyes to my world of reasoning behind strange fashion insistencies. Please resist the urge to buy a scarf as I promise you, vampires are not real.

Darn good and sure of it,
