Stripes

A new study suggests STRIPES might be making us ill...


[via]

Scientists warn that stripes in architecture and clothing may trigger migraines and epileptic seizures.

“Vertical orientation of stripes are in general worse than horizontal,” said Dr Dorothée Kasteleijn-Nolst Trenité, an epileptologist of UMC Utrecht.

“Examples of striped patterns that are potentially provocative in daily life are rolling stairs, venetian blinds, striped clothes and buildings.”

Oh dear...

    1. LX: They used to say that 'lightning never strikes the same place twice' but that was proven false.

      So maybe this study will be proven wrong too.

      In the meantime, say a few Hail Marys.

    1. DAMIEN: Surely that THING could be used for a bit of DIY around the house.

      It will save you a trip to Home Depot.

  4. Bullshit ! Sakrileg ! Haeresie !

    What does a kaeskopp know ? Nothing !!

    Pippa Middleton may be giving a head's ache to someone, but that's not related to her rug, maybe to her fat arse she has built a fortune on.

    Our Lady of the Stripey Pantyhose - blessed be - stands above all this. Sucking one of Her striped toes is know as the promised Panacea among the chosen few !
    A drip of the nectar She keeps at the right temperature is compared to Mana - and rightly so !

    Let's ignore the devilish influencers and keep on sucking !

    1. MAGO: Kaeskopp… does that mean “cheese head?” Or would that be Käsekopf?

      “Keep on sucking!” That should be the Infomaniac motto.

    2. Exactly, literally "cheese head", a slow, not bright person, a derogatory term for inhabitants of The Netherlands used by their neighbours in Belgium & Germany.
      Conversely the Netherlanders call the Germans "moffen", don't know what "scheldwort" / expletive they have for Belgians, sorry.

    3. MAGO: In the United States, the citizens of the state of Wisconsin are called “cheeseheads.” This is because of the many cheese factories in that state.
