The Lancet Recants Study Linking Autism To Vaccine

aquatone282 Too Late (590 comments)

Once the celebrities start spouting the nonsense, it's too late.

The female 18-50 market segment won't let go of it for another five years.

Thanks Lancet! Thanks Hollywood!

Why "Running IT As a Business" Is a Bad Idea

aquatone282 IT Are Like Janitors (364 comments)

Janitors don't produce any revenue for a company, but they are necessary for the people who do.

The same goes for IT staff. Unless your company is selling IT services, they don't produce any revenue for the company but are necessary for the people who do.

IT people understand a developer's job about as much as a janitor does.

Seriously - get overselves and STOP finding ways to make my job more difficult. MY job produces the revenue that pays YOUR salary.

aquatone282 Helen Back, Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA (920 comments)

Alas, the OLD Helen Back pizza, the one with the salt-rimmed crust.

Now it sucks, but its still a great place to pick-up crazy off-duty strippers late at night.

My resting pulse, as of today, is ...

aquatone282 I Don't Want To Know (329 comments)

Once upon a time when I watched my diet and exercised 6 days a week, it used to be around 55-60 bpm. But now, after my second divorce and a year of booze, cigarettes, and high-fat foods who knows where its at - maybe 70 bpm resting if I'm lucky.

But I sure as hell am a lot happier.

aquatone282 writes "A story in yesterday's Washington Examiner reports VeriChip Inc. is "lobbying the Pentagon for the right to implant chips under the skins of the nearly 1.4 million U.S. military personnel."

"VeriChip hopes that the chips will replace the metal dog tags that have been worn by U.S. military personnel since 1906."

"The potential for this technology doesn't just stop at the civilian level," a VeriChip spokeswoman said."
