I gained 17 Facebook Friends in 4 minutes

Published by admin under Uncategorized

So I’m not really sure how to grok the reality of this, but I just gained 17 Facebook friends (I like how even Google Chrome spell checks “them” aka Facebook) friends in about 4 minutes time.   This is all within the context of a brand new account (from an OldSkool email account) added today.  And [...]

Well, those of us who primarily use our bicycles for transportation already knew this, but now there’s research to back us up.   A study published earlier this month in the journal Neurology found that after nine years, people who walked an average of 6-9 miles a week maintained their brain volume (measured using high [...]

You Stoners out there should reconsider!

Published by admin under Uncategorized

So it’s been said that if it weren’t for the stoners Dominoes pizza wouldn’t still be in business. Well, it would seem that those stoners should know that the business that they’re supporting via their desire to crave their munchies is a mighty right wing business.  You too can see the gory details by visiting [...]

CCS Seemed like a bit of a pipe dream

Published by admin under Uncategorized

Carbon capture and storage “is not a practical means to provide any substantive reduction in CO2 emissions, although it has been repeatedly presented as such by others.” That’s what Engineering researchers from Texas have concluded.

Does Your Boss Want You Dead?

Published by admin under Uncategorized

Frighteningly enough, these days it’s reasonably probably that they might. Thanks to insurance industry reform that happened in the 1980′s, your boss can take out a (tax free) life insurance policy on you and keep 100% of the benefits from that policy without sharing any of it with your surviving family members. And many companies [...]

Racisim is alive and well in The Tea Party

Published by admin under Uncategorized

Many civilized people in these United States are likely under the impression that racism has been all but eliminated in this country. But if you aren’t a pale, white skinned American, you’d likely say otherwise.  As a matter of fact, you’d possibly say that racism is on the rise in The United States.  And, as [...]

Awareness of The Velvet Underground

Published by admin under Uncategorized

So I’m in the offices of a company that I’m doing some contract work at, and I hear the receptionist mention the name The Velvet Underground. A name that I would hope would perk up the ears of anyone with any shred of musical knowledge. It turned out that the person that the receptionist was [...]

Hippies And Geeks, Oh My

Published by admin under Uncategorized

So, if one were to map out the intersection of the various subsets of our culture, it seems likely that one of the groupings that you would notice is the one between geeks and hippies.  And I can understand a large part of the reason behind this, mainly since I am included in that intersection.  [...]

Christian Bale freaks out on the T4 set and a song gets made because of it

Published by admin under Uncategorized

Apparently Christian Bale was having a hard day at work recently, on the set of Terminator 4, and he ended up erupting in a spate of anger.  The whole thing ended up getting recorded and folks have subsequently used it as the basis of music.  There’s one such song that’s a mashup/remix of it (a [...]
