Facebook Follies

Here at Lost Cactus, we are way ahead of the curve when it comes to lampooning the folly of investing in a company like Facebook.

In this Sunday style comic strip found in the Second Treasury, Ty the Dinosaur is out exploring in the hinterlands around the top-secret base, when he comes across Old Man Clampett. Clampett is a former Wall Street mover and shaker and board member on the Powers That Be*. Now he is an irascible desert hermit who guards his territory with a shoot-first, ask questions later mentality.

Lost Cactus Celebrates World Book Day

Reading is fundamental to the expansion of human knowledge, and reading the First and Second Lost Cactus Treasuries has the added benefit of expanding your Uncommon Knowledge

World Book Day
Lost Cactus celebrates reading on World Book Day!

The Following is the Preface from Lost Cactus – The First Treasury Introducing the Exclusive Lost Cactus Concept of Uncommon Knowledge.

Let us begin with a simple question: “What is common knowledge?” Well, the utility of an umbrella, or a snorkel, or a pair of flip-flops, or a spoon are obvious examples of common knowledge. I would say the ingredients of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich are well known, too. Even the fact that we have become a paranoid society full of street cams, smartphones and data-gathering drones is universally understood these days. So, we can safely assume everyone wandering around the shopping mall has about the same breadth and depth of common knowledge. Right? Right.

However, what about uncommon knowledge? For instance: Who was Werner Heisenberg? What is a clone stamp? Where is Amelia Earhart? When was the Big Bang? Why is the sky blue? How do you calculate the weight of the sun? Of course, no one at the mall has that information, including the person behind the information counter. But fear not dear reader, each chapter in this treasury will begin with one of the following: 

Random Brain Scatterings – Short, acerbic essays on an eclectic variety of topics that will add to your wealth of uncommon knowledge. Look for the skull icon.

Urban Myths and Tall Tales – When you see the Ty and Bentley icon at the top of the page, you are about to read a story conjured in one of the Lost Cactus characters’ fertile imaginations.

For Your Eyes Only – Top-secret and highly classified insider information appropriated right out of the Lost Cactus base archives and indicated by the saucer icon.

As you read onwards, you will discover the answers to the aforementioned uncommon questions, and much more. Additionally, as you make your way through Lost Cactus – The First Treasury, even more, will be revealed. For instance, you’ll learn how Doc obtains the DNA to create his Elvis clone, or where he gets the fuel to power his revolutionary energy generator. The terrifying subject matter contained within General Fox’s blooper reels. And how Cato got his name. Those are just a few examples of the Lost Cactus insider information that you’ll glean along with plenty of fun facts and trivia. And, at the end of each chapter, all of your newfound uncommon knowledge will be put to the test. So do pay attention. 

In a nutshell, this book will elevate your intelligence quota to heretofore unseen heights. Plus, you’ll be exposed to information so classified that even presidents are kept out of the loop, thereby maintaining their “plausible deniability”. Yes, I borrowed that from one of my favorite movies. I could ramble on, however by now, you must be anxious to start reading this amazing book. One last thing, remember to spread the word about Lost Cactus – The First Treasury, so eventually it will become common knowledge for everyone.
