iPhone Today – Apocalypse Tomorrow

Ponder This:   Before a future version of Apple’s iPhone wakes you up in the morning, it will have downloaded the morning’s news feeds and sent a message to your coffee maker to begin brewing a fresh pot.  If you’d rather read the morning news on your TV while you sip your fresh brewed cup of Joe, you’ll be able to simply wave the handset towards the TV to throw the day’s feeds up on the big screen

That’s the future for the iPhone, and the think tank behind the program isn’t likely to set false expectations.  (Read More)

Anyone else wondering where this is headed…..

Science Says, ‘You Were Crazy Already’

schizophrenia

While it wasn’t on Mythbusters, the truth has still been revealed. 

Scientists have decided that people “who develop cannabis-induced psychosis are as predisposed to schizophrenia spectrum disorder and other psychiatric disorders as those who develop schizophrenia spectrum disorder without a history of cannabis-induced psychosis.”

Altogether, these findings, in addition to those of previous studies, indicate that cannabis-induced psychosis may not be a valid diagnosis but an early marker of schizophrenia.

(i.e. your ass was already crazy even without the diggity, but your starry eyes help us recognize your crazy self)

Feel free to see the whole story and let me know what you’re thinking!

Brain Scans Show Bullies Enjoy Others’ Pain

Bullies may actually enjoy the pain they cause others, a new study using brain scans suggests.

The part of the brain associated with reward lights up when an aggressive teen watches a video of someone hurting another person, but not when a non-aggressive youth watches the same clip, according to the University of Chicago study, published in the current Biological Psychology.

The Board Room

I half expected Donald Trump to show up and fire my ass! The flight is very soon and I made sure to not wear any nylons that could melt to my skin should something bad happen (which it won’t!) so wish me luck! Yes, I’m joking about the nylons. I’m more of a knee-high kind of guy.

1 In 5 Of Y’all Have Some Splainin’ To Do

42-19039558Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans have genital herpes.  In New York (and soon Atlanta) the stats are closer to 1 in 4.  For kicks, count on one hand yourself and three to four people you know (depending upon your location).  To make it really fun, exclude friends you think may be clean, count people you know at work, and then try to deduct who it is. 

 Reminder – Keep Your Love Locked Down

You can also have a lot of fun with this kind of math for the following two stats:
   1 in 10 married white males beat their wife 
   1 in 20 males are sociopaths (this is calculus level messiness – take your time)

Melissa Etheridge, I’m With Ya Sister!

Melissa Etheridge takes to the blogs and talks about how she feels about Prop 8 passing, which basically makes any gay marriages in California null and void. Here’s an excerpt from the complete blog entry:

“Okay. So Prop 8 passed. Alright, I get it. 51% of you think that I am a second class citizen. Alright then. So my wife, uh I mean, roommate? Girlfriend? Special lady friend? You are gonna have to help me here because I am not sure what to call her now. Anyways, she and I are not allowed the same right under the state constitution as any other citizen. Okay, so I am taking that to mean I do not have to pay my state taxes because I am not a full citizen…Gay people are born everyday. You will never legislate that away… Obama has been elected president. This crazy fearful insanity will end soon. ”

I find it interesting that I could marry a stripper this weekend in Vegas and because it’s a female, somehow it is considered to be blessed by God, yet if I’ve been in a committed, monogamous, loving relationship with a man for many years, somehow it’s less blessed by God. And better yet, I could marry that stripper, get a divorce, marry another stripper (let’s say that I have a thing for strippers), get divorced, and on and on…yet, that still would be better than being in one gay relationship forever. How is that even logical? If people are worried about the sanctity of marriage, perhaps they should reduce or abolish the ability to get divorced – just a thought.

You know, the Bible says many many things that aren’t exactly, let’s say, accurate for today’s times or even consistent in the times it was written. Have a look if you don’t believe me. No disrespect to the Bible, but it is something to ponder eh?

Rihanna Faints Down Under

Rihanna was performing in Australia and during the song “Umbrella” where Chris Brown was joining her, she started to make the “somethin’s not right up in this bitch” signal and fainted after leaving the stage. 

We wish Rihanna a speedy recovery because not only is she a stunner, but she’s also pop music’s brave new face – we love her.
