The Evolution of Diet
live like those people and flop over dead before your time
Being that alcoholism and suicide are leading causes of death among Inuits . . . those diets must make you feel miserable, too.
Magnitude 6.0 Quake Hits Northern California, Causing Injuries and Outages
It's strange . . . we're worried about dying from Global Warming . . . getting hit by an asteroid . . . an Ebola epidemic . . . but nobody seems concerned that maybe the Earth could bust apart at its seems.
I, for one, would welcome the end of the Earth in some weird way that we never thought about.
Finding an ISIS Training Camp Using Google Earth
. . . the trouble is . . . the training camp is probably conveniently located right next to a hospital or a school.
Cause of Global Warming 'Hiatus' Found Deep In the Atlantic
It's Dark Matter.
If anything's missing, the answer always is Dark Matter.
Can't find your car keys . . . ? Dark Matter.
Short on your mortgage this month . . . ? Tell the bank, "Dark Matter."
The Earth is not as hot as we'd like it to be . . . ? Dark Matter.
If Fusion Is the Answer, We Need To Do It Quickly
Yes, we were definitely confused. Back in the 80's, we were trying to do the fusion "cold".
Instead, this guy suggests now that we do the fusion "quick" instead.
I see an Ig Nobel coming for "quick" fusion.
Ballmer Leaves Microsoft Board
. . . customer last.
Fighting Invasive Fish With Forks and Knives
It's a greasy, nasty-tasting meat with a mushy texture.
McDonald's has made a fortune with that. A McSnakehead might appeal to kids and metal heads, if they included a toy with it.
Fighting Invasive Fish With Forks and Knives
Those are the fish that can move 1/4 mile across dry land to find new places to live.
Well, that sounds like their weak point. Maybe we need to have Springfield Snakefish Days when it's dry and go around clubbing them?
The summary says that they hang out in shallow, grassy waters. Some geek fisher here must have some techie ideas involving radar and shotguns that should help the problem.
EFF's Cell Phone Guide For US Protesters
Wipe it before you leave the house.
Words to live by.
. . . or shake it three times. But if you shake it more than three times, you're playing with it.
Why the Universe Didn't Become a Black Hole
because the "arrow of time" would point two opposite ways in the "meta-universe".
This is a seriously silly question, but has any serious physicist conjectured that the "arrow of time" could have more than two directions?
I mean, like going sideways or something? And what would be the bizarre implications of that?
Fukushima's Biological Legacy
Problem is, nobody cares to do that study because there is no agenda driving it, and no funding, and no press would care.
It would be a hoot and a half if it turned out the Big Coal was funding the Fukushima studies:
"See! Nukes bad and evil! Coal healthy and wholesome!"
Bezos-Owned Washington Post Embeds Amazon Buy-It-Now Buttons Mid-sentence
New Washington Post headlines . . .
"Hurricanes to slam the entire US coasts . . . and the stuff in between!" [click here to buy a hurricane survival kit]
"Martians land in Washington and attack the White House!" [click here to buy guns and ammo]
"Ebola epidemic hits US!" [click here to buy skin lightening cream, because only white folks will get the vaccine]
Gartner: Internet of Things Has Reached Hype Peak
You need to be careful with what you do with "things" . . . I have a patent titled:
"A Method and Process for Doing Stuff with Things"
I'd most like to (personally) explore:
You see different footprints from different programmers who have maintained it . . . recognize different personalities in the style and comments . . . you can tell if the project was a joy or a Death March . . . and I always learn how to do something that I didn't know before.
IBM Creates Custom-Made Brain-Like Chip
. . . I wacky-parsed the title as: "IBM Creates Custom-Made Brain-Like Chimp.
. . . so just imagine where that thought train derailed me . . .
With Chinese Investment, Nicaraguan Passage Could Dwarf Panama Canal
. . . or maybe it's "Carlos".
The canal project will bring in more bucks than surfing tourism, so that will pretty much settle it.
My degree of colorblindness:
. . . I think that it is some kind of double-blind test to see if you are racist, or something like that.
Which races are blue and green, again? And are Silicon Valley companies hiring enough of them . . . ?
Xiaomi Arrives As Top Smartphone Seller In China
On a per capita basis, American citizens are four times as likely to be incarcerated as Chinese citizens.
Chinese workers are more productive in manufacturing things, but American criminals are four times more productive in committing crimes! We're #1! USA! USA!
Now, if we can just find a way to monetize this advantage, and turn crime into a highly successful export article, we're all set!
Or maybe Chinese criminals are smarter and better at not getting caught? And our criminals are dumber and not very adept at avoiding justice?
European Rosetta Space Craft About To Rendezvous With Comet
(Disclaimer: I'll be one of the speakers :-)
. . . will you be speaking live, from the spacecraft?
That would surely impress the finicky crowd here. And make us all jealous!
Edward Snowden Is Not Alone: US Gov't Seeks Another Leaker
The UK had two Russian spies in their government: Donald Maclean and Guy Burgess . . . and Kim Philby.
Ok, their three Russian spies were: Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess and Kim Philby . . . and Anthony Blunt.
Start again. Among their Russian spies were: Donald Maclean, Guy Burges, Kim Philby, Anthony Blunt and John Cairncross . . . and . . .
The unmasking took years to complete . . . um . . . if it was completed . . .
However there is a big difference here . . . those spies did it for Russia. Snowden did for America.
