You Have Taste Receptors In Your Lungs

flows Re:Coffee (223 comments)

Any chance this is why the coffee for asthma remedy is supposedly effective? Perhaps inhaling the vapors for a bitter fluid are doing just what they described here?

My thoughts exactly! As an asthmatic, I have found myself often alleviated by coffee. My assumption was that either the warmth or maybe even the caffeine was responsible.

Can it be why just the smell of coffee makes me feel better?

I'm surely paying more attention in the future. *Goes get more coffee*

Thumbprints Used To Check Books Out of School Library

flows Re:Big Deal (355 comments)

Well, my 8 year old has a school card since 1st grade with a pin number, remembered since day one. And yes, it can (among other things) be used to check out books from the school library.

Sony Pondering Downloadable Game Rental Service For the PSP

flows Re:Maybe (50 comments)

Odd, my PSP suspends whenever & where ever I want it to.

I've had my PSP reset on power up more than a couple times, specially first couple months i had it. Maybe it was the game/UMD fault. I remember Pirates Gold as the worst example, Tony Hawk's close second. Or could it be just firmware, and it got better. Or maybe the unofficial battery? I bought one of those "double capacity" batteries after ruining my official one converting it to Pandora (by clipping a leg off a chip).

Sony Pondering Downloadable Game Rental Service For the PSP

flows Re:Maybe (50 comments)

I've had my PSP for 2 years now, daily companion of a 15/25 minute bus ride to work. I can recall a couple games that made me walk into my office still playing, none had me dedicate that time for fear of losing a save game or having to replay some area. Suspend works every time unless you turn the device off while it's writing to the memory stick. I can pick it up on the way back home, right where I was.

On topic, I rather have 1 good game at a time and play it to exhaustion (any good game, from Puzzle Quest to God of War) than having to play a bunch of them just so I feel like I'm leeching my monthly rental fee.
