Are We Heading For Immortality?
7:40 pm pdt | link
From the moment of birth, we begin the battle against death -- against the inevitable. Statistics say that a newborn child
can expect to live an average of 76 years. But averages may not be what they use to be.
In 1786, life expectancy was 24 years.
A hundred years later it doubled to 48. Right now, it's 76.
"Over half the baby boomers here in America are going to see their hundredth birthday and beyond in excellent health,"
says Dr. Ronald Klatz of the American Academy of Anti-Aging. "We're looking at life spans for the baby boomers and the
generation after the baby boomers of 120 to 150 years of age." (more)

Does absinthe really cause hallucinations?
When absinthe was banned in France, Switzerland, the United States and many other countries
in the early 1900s, it had really fallen out of favor. It wasn't just frowned upon; it was accused of creating murderers,
making children into criminals and turning women into "martyrs." That regular old alcohol received similar treatment during the Prohibition period in the United States turns out to be pretty apropos:
We now know that properly manufactured absinthe, an anise-flavored, alcoholic drink, is no more dangerous than any other properly
What about the tales of hallucinations, Oscar Wilde and his tulips, family massacres and instant death? Not absinthe's
fault, technically speaking. Absinthe does have a very high alcohol content -- anywhere between 55 and 75 percent, which equates
to about 110 to 144 proof. It makes whiskey's standard 40 percent (80 proof) seem like child's play, which is why absinthe
is supposed to be diluted. Absinthe is not a hallucinogen; its alcohol content and herbal flavor sets it apart from other

Physicist Hawking gets taste of zero-gravity
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - British physicist Stephen Hawking took a flight on Thursday that gave the renowned
scientist, who is confined to a wheelchair, a taste of the weightlessness of space.
Hawking, 65, and an entourage of caretakers and other thrill-seekers took off from the space shuttle's runway at the Kennedy
Space Center in a specially modified jet that dives through the sky to give passengers an experience of zero gravity.
They returned to the space center in Florida about two hours later.

Taiwan stung by millions of missing bees

Over the past two months, farmers in three parts of Taiwan have reported most of their bees gone, the Chinese-language
United Daily News reported. Taiwan's TVBS television station said about 10 million bees had vanished in Taiwan.
A beekeeper on Taiwan's northeastern coast reported 6 million insects missing "for no reason", and one in the south said
80 of his 200 bee boxes had been emptied, (continued)

Maybe we should get used to this
2:03 pm pdt | link
Who’s to say what set off the young fellow at Virginia Tech last week. But one thing’s for sure in my humble opinion. We’re going
to see more of it.
Thousands and thousands of our troops are headed home from the Middle East in increasingly
stress addled conditions. And extending their tours and not putting in place
a proper support system for them when they get home is going to cause us to see a lot of acting out. Typical scenes from everyday urban life will be enough to trigger Flashbacks and PTSD’s in lots of former
combat troops. Couple this with urban warfare experience and training and you’ve
got a potentially lethal formula that will make the freak outs of some of the Vietnam Vets look like child’s play.
We’ve got men and women living
in extreme high stress… life and death scenarios on a daily basis for extended periods… With many of them being there against
their will by virtue of Stop Gap Orders and Forced Rotations… Ask many a psychologist
or psychiatrist and you’d find that this is fertile ground for psychoses of many kinds.
Stories are now beginning to come to light of family problems caused by extended tours and the divorce rate is rising
among our troops. Add to this the financial stresses of being away from higher
paying jobs that a lot of our National Guard troops are facing… And we’re facing a real mess.
The mental health support capabilities of our V.A. system is just as raggedy
as the shortfalls seen at Walter Reed for the physically injured… And the mental health facilities and personnel are a much,
much smaller part of the V.A.’s budget! I hate to be posting some long mournful
jeremiad lamenting the horrors that await us upon the return of our much beloved troops… But… If we wish to show our support
of them… It’s up to us here at home to raise our voices to the dough-heads in the Administration and Congress to make haste
in preparing the way for them to come home. As usual… The idiots are posturing
and speechifying and pestering to “Bring Em Home!!!” But are any of them talking
serious or introducing legislation to get the V.A. up to speed to handle the tidal wave of vets who are going to need counseling
at the very least? … In a word… NOPE.
So far… I haven’t even mentioned the potential mental state of a lot of the
wounded… We’re talking folks that have survived injuries that would have killed them in previous conflicts... Injuries so terrible that in some cases it may have been better to let some of them die when the psychological
and medical expenses become clearer. Imagine the mental state of a formerly vital
and athletic young man or woman who is released from hospital with literally half a body?
Call me a pessimist… But I see a potential explosion and massacre in an Arab American enclave somewhere in Middle America… I see some poor fellow barricaded in at his former employer’s place of business where
he’s just been fired for his inability to adjust back to everyday life and now he “scares” his co-workers… How about the returnee
dweller of a low-income neighborhood set off by the sounds of gunfire in an alley late some night? Rinse and Repeat.
Folks… We’re gonna see an even more terrifying specter if we don’t get moving
on this… Women committing acts of violence unheard of since Ma Barker and Bonnie Parker.
But this will be much, much worse… Ma and Bonnie were simple thieves. Our
women soldiers are combat trained and baptized by fire. The first time one of
these ladies goes off and it takes a SWAT team to take her down… The media is going to go crazy. But it’ll be too late then. The tide will be coming
Even with our best efforts… These things will happen… Sometimes… Too many soldiers… Too much stress… Too little time… Too much apathy.
But… We CAN move to minimize these incidents… And we’d better get Moving…
And Calling… And Writing…

Try This, Don Imus
11:28 pm pdt | link
I guess that so many people were overwhelmingly
stunned with the stupid Imus thing that no one seems to have noticed nor mentioned
the fact all races creeds and colors have their own proprietary words.
Don’s big mistake wasn’t so much WHAT he said as the context in which he used it!
The simple minded wretch made the mistake of thinking he could speak a language in which he wasn’t fluent. To wit: Not even your coarsest and ignorant rapper would be caught dead calling those particular women
“Hoes”… of any kind. Period.
When you see a rap video with rump
shakin, pole dancing, half nekkid females letting guys swipe ATM cards between their butt cheeks… Guess What?... You’re seeing
Hoes! And in that context… They are in fact, being referred to correctly.
Now… calling any… and I mean ANY respectable
female a hoe is pretty near in the same violational factor as calling that same female a bitch. You’re going to get pretty near the same slap and cuss either way.
Everybody knows what a hoe is …same as everybody knows the context of calling a woman a bitch. And we all know that hoes and bitches come in all races, creeds and colors… And we all know at least one
Imus made his thing racial by adding
“nappy headed” to the descriptive. Oops!
There you go!.. Don… you don’t gots no nappy head. You don’t gets to comment
on nappy heads. Not in public anyway.
Same thing as you don’t refer to Wops, Guineas and Dagos informally unless
your last name happens to be Corleone or Soprano or Cuomo or something that would be recognized as simpatico by someone with
such a last name. Capisce?
You don’t ordinarily hear people of
color going on about redneck peccadilloes even though Jeff Foxworthy has done a hell of a job trying to make it a mainstream
term. It’s a term that white folks can bandy about with nary a second thought,
but might be cause for some uncomfortable pauses in the conversation if… say… a man or woman from Harlem or South Central
L.A. should break out with… “So there’s these two rednecks…”
Much has been made of black folks using
the “N” word amongst themselves rather freely… Well… And this is just my opinion… But I would argue that it’s their word to
co opt as they will. Granted …It was forced upon them… But irregardless… if the
word is said… the picture that pops into one’s mind is pretty predictable. I
say that black folks have earned the right to use that word in any way they damn well please amongst themselves.
much as the PC crowd needs to have us all live in a color or race blind society… The truth is… That as long as there
are cultural differences… There will always be words that are proprietary to a particular culture and we would all do well
to just mind our manners.

How Many do You Recognize?

Did you ever notice that certain things only happen in the movies, but never happen in real life? For example:
- It is always possible to find a parking spot directly outside or opposite the building you are visiting.
- When paying for a taxi, don’t look at your wallet as you take out a note. Just grab one out at random and hand it over.
It will always be the exact fare.
- Television news bulletins usually contain a story that affects you personally at the precise moment it’s aired.
- Creepy music (or satanic chanting) coming from a graveyard should always be closely investigated.
- Any lock can be picked with a credit card or paperclip in seconds. UNLESS it’s the door to a burning building with a child
- If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps.
- All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red digital displays so you know exactly when they are
going to explode.
- Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to learn to speak German. Simply speaking
English with a German accent will do. Similarly, when they are alone, all German soldiers prefer to speak English to each
- Once applied, lipstick will never rub off. Even while scuba diving.
- The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building in Paris.
- Any police officer about to retire from the force will more often than not die on their last day (especially if their
family have planned a party). (Caveat: Detectives can only solve a case after they have been suspended from duty).
- Getaway cars never start first go. But all cop cars do. (They will also slide to a dramatic stop in the midst of a crime
- If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any strange noises wearing their most revealing underwear.
- On a police stake-out, the action will only ever take place when food is being consumed and scalding hot coffees are perched
precariously on the dashboard…
- All grocery shopping involves the purchase of French loaves which will be placed in open brown paper bags (Caveat: when
said bags break, only fruit will spill out).
- Cars never need fuel (unless they’re involved in a pursuit).
- If you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts, your opponents will wait patiently to attack you one
by one by dancing around you in a threatening manner until you have defeated their predecessor.
- If a microphone is turned on it will immediately feedback.
- Guns are like disposable razors. If you run out of bullets, just throw the gun away. you will always find another one.
- All single women have a cat.
- Cars will explode instantly when struck by a single bullet.
- No matter how savagely a spaceship is attacked, its internal gravity system is never damaged.
- If being chased through a city you can usually take cover in a passing St Patrick’s Day parade - at any time of the year.
- The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. Nobody will ever think of looking for you in there
and you can travel to any other part of the building undetected.
- You will survive any battle in any war UNLESS you show someone a picture of your sweetheart back home.
- Prostitutes always look like Julia Roberts or Jamie Lee Curtis. They have expensive clothes and nice apartments but no
pimps. They are friendly with the shopkeepers in their neighbourhood who don’t mind at all what the girl does for a living.
- A single match is usually sufficient to light up a room the size of a football stadium.
- It is not necessary to say “Hello” or “Goodbye” when beginning a telephone conversation. A disconnected call can always
be restored by frantically beating the cradle and saying “Hello? Hello?” repeatedly.
- One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them all than 20 men firing at once (this is known as Stallone’s
- When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in you room will still be visible, just slightly bluish.
- Plain or even ugly girls can become movie star pretty simply by removing their glasses and rearranging their hair.
- Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their enemies with complicated devices incorporating fuses,
pulleys, deadly gases, lasers and man-eating sharks.
- All beds have special L-shaped sheets that reach to armpit level on a woman but only up to the waist of the man lying
- Anyone can land a 747 as long as there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.
- During all police investigations it will be necessary to visit a strip club at least once.
- You can always find a chainsaw when you need one.
- Most musical instruments (especially wind instruments and accordions) can be played without moving your fingers.
- In Middle America, all gas station attendants have red handkerchiefs hanging out of their back pockets.
- All teen house parties have one of every stereotypical subculture present (even people who aren’t liked and would never
get invited to parties).
- Trucks use their horns at random (no hang on, that happens in real life too!).

Looks Like a Giant Screw to Me!
The city's planning board has endorsed a proposal for a twisting lakefront tower that would become the nation's tallest
With Thursday's approval from the Chicago Plan Commission, the design and site plan for the 2,000-foot Chicago Spire goes
to the city zoning committee next week.
"This is a wonderful project, and everyone is very enthused," said Constance Buscemi, spokeswoman for the city's planning
The 150-story tower, which would feature 1,200 residences, would unseat Chicago's 1,451-foot Sears Tower as the tallest
U.S. building. It would also top New York's 1,776-foot Freedom Tower, under construction at the former World Trade Center

There was a time that I could fly. I jutted my right fist into the air, and launched into the sky. My stomach dropped
with the sensation of breaking gravity’s bond, and the summer air cooled as I reached higher. When the roads were so far below
as to be an indistinct ashen blur, I halted and curled my legs under me as I was pelted by icy crystals of clouds, and surveyed
all below. There was a moment of idle indecision, but in the end it mattered not at all. I picked a direction and dove. (continued at Damn Interesting)

BLACKSBURG, Va. - The mood in the basketball arena was defeated, funereal. Nikki Giovanni seemed an unlikely source of
strength for a Virginia Tech campus reeling from the depravity of one of its own.
Tiny, almost elfin, her delivery blunted by the loss of a lung, Giovanni brought the crowd at the memorial service to its
feet and whipped mourners into an almost evangelical fervor with her words: "We are the Hokies. We will prevail, we will prevail.
We are Virginia Tech."
Nearly two years earlier, Giovanni had stood up to Cho Seung-Hui before he drenched the campus in blood. Her comments Tuesday
showed that the man who had killed 32 students and teachers had not killed the school's spirit. (continued)

Apple cider vinegar If the cause of your high blood pressure stems from eating too much protein with too little
acid taken with it, two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water will drop the pressure from 20 to 40 points in
half an hour. The protein in your diet creates alkalinity in your blood and causes it to be thicker. More pressure is required
to push the thickened blood through the capillaries, so there may well be an increase in blood pressure. The acid in the vinegar
thins the blood and therefore makes it easier for the heart to pump it through the body.
Beets Slice a raw beet and squeeze fresh lemon juice over it so that all surfaces are wet; refrigerate overnight
and eat one slice per day. Your blood pressure should drop dramatically very quickly.

Absinthe is a 140-proof green liqueur made from herbs like fennel, anise, and the exceptionally bitter leaves of Artemisia
absinthium. That last ingredient, also known as wormwood, gives the drink its name - and its sinister reputation. For
a century, absinthe has been demonized and outlawed, based on the belief that it leads to absinthism - far worse than mere
alcoholism. Drinking it supposedly causes epilepsy and "criminal dementia."

WASHINGTON - Three of the 10 men who work in the utility tunnels underneath the U.S. Capitol have asbestos-related lung
disease, and another four “most likely” are developing asbestos-related lung disease as well, according to an independent

maintains a healthy glow with bimonthly facials and occasional micro-dermabrasion.
Like many baby boomers, they desire to look and feel young.
That’s why, last November, after seeing a Discovery Health Channel program featuring
plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Maloney, the couple decided to make an effort to look as good as they felt. Terrie, 47, underwent
a face-lift, stomach fat transfer to cheeks and lips, a full-face laser treatment, upper and lower eyelid work and rhinoplasty.
About a week and a half later, Tony, 64, also had a face-lift, along with upper and lower eyelid work, stomach fat transfer
to cheeks and lips, and a chemical peel. The combined costs reached upward of $45,000.

Bizarre Human Brain Parasite Precisely Alters Fear
Study: Cat Parasite Affects Human Culture
microbe commonly found in cats might have helped shape entire human cultures by manipulating the personalities of infected
individuals, according to a new study.
a Toxoplasma gondii could make some individuals more prone to
some forms of neuroticism and could lead to differences among cultures if enough people are infected, says Kevin Lafferty,
a U.S. Geological Survey scientist at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
In a survey
of different countries, Lafferty found that people living in those with higher rates of T. gondii infection scored higher on average for neuroticism, defined as an emotional or mental disorder characterized by high levels
of anxiety, insecurity or depression.
T. gondii is a parasitic germ whose primary hosts are cats. However, it can be found in most warm-blooded animals, including
an estimated 50 million people in the United States. One study suggests the parasite has altered
human behavior enough to shape entire cultures.

How the Mind of a Generous Person Works
6:18 pm pdt | link
an enduring mystery that taunts neuroscientists and evolutionary biologists. If the human brain evolved to maximize
its owner’s survival, why are we motivated to help others, even when it incurs some personal cost?
pat answer is that when we help someone in need, we expect him to return the favor. But some kinds of altruism aren’t
easy to explain away as mere reciprocity. For example, tax incentives aside, donating money to a charitable cause is
unlikely to bring the donor any foreseeable return – except perhaps the "joy of giving."
new studies shed light on why it feels good to give by examining how and where altruism originates in the brain. (continued)

A Devious Old Buzzard!
An elderly man in Florida had owned a large
farm for several years.
He had a large pond in the
back, fixed up nice -- picnic tables, horseshoe
courts, and some orange and grapefruit trees. The
pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming
when it was built.
One evening the
old farmer decided to go down to
the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and
look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to
bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he
heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he
came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women
skinny-dipping in his pond.
He made the women aware of his presence and they all
went to the deep end.
One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming
out until you leave!" The old man frowned, "I didn't
come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or
make you get out of the pond naked." Holding the
bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the alligator."
Old men can still think fast.

8:14 pm pdt | link John is a natural motivator.
If a fellow employee is having a bad day, John is there telling
the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style
really made me curious, so one day I went up and told him, "I don't get it! You
can't be a positive person all of the time How do you do it?"
He replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have
two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or ... you can choose to be in a bad mood. I simply choose to be in
a good mood."
"Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested.
But, I reflected on what he said. Soon thereafter, I left the
Cell Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about John when I made a choice about life
instead of reacting to it.
Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious
accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower.
After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was
released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.
I saw him about six months after the accident.
When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better,
I'd be twins...Wanna see my scars?" I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask
him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.
"The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being
of my baby daughter," he replied. "Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live
or...I could choose to die. I chose to live."
"Weren't you scared?" I asked.
"Nope" He continued, "...the paramedics were great."
They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled
me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read
'he's a dead man'. I knew I needed to take action." "What did you do?" I asked.
"Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,"
said John. "She asked if I was allergic to anything 'Yes, I replied.' The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited
for my reply. I took a
deep breath and yelled, 'Gravity!!'
Over their laughter, I told them, "I am choosing to live. Operate
on me as if I am alive, not dying!"
He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because
of his amazing attitude... I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
Attitude, after all, is everything.

To: Tom Delay, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Dennis
Hastert, Barack Obama, John McCain
Re: Public readiness for medicating the
Public readiness for our proposed health
care initiatives is excellent:
The public are entirely willing to abdicate
authority to prescribe medications. This is shown by the total lack of debate
on doctors' prescription monopoly, and by the relatively minimal reaction to the FDA trial balloon of banning OTC vitamins. The acceptance of the war on drugs has succeeded beyond even my wildest dreams.
AIDS patients are an exception, but they
won't be around much longer, since we've successfully hushed all news of the cure developed last year.
The public are entirely willing to accede
to mandatory medication. Witness the near-total lack of comment on compulsary childhood vaccination. And nobody but John Birch crackpots ever criticizes fluoridation of the drinking water. I anticipate near-total acceptance of our proposal to introduce another mineral into the nation's water
supply -- lithium.
* The public does care about taxes. But they know there's nothing they can do about them.
It's no secret that both parties raise them. I wouldn't be surprised at an upsurge in tax noncompliance, but a few
major show trials will put a quick stop to that.
The lack of protest about the re-introduction
of draft registration is another excellent sign of public compliance:
People are very tolerant of high medical
costs, so long as they aren't out-of-pocket directly. Medicines consisting of
sheep fat, milk sugar, and penny-a-ton industrial byproduct minerals sell for thousands of dollars an ounce, and continued
price increases haven't slacked the demand at all. Patients are quite willing to accept that a half hour in a box consisting
of magnets and a radio transmitter linked to a PC (MRI) is worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars, so long as someone
else is perceived as paying. My conclusion is that the public is fully ready for phase I:
full introduction of socialized medicine, so long as it isn't called "socialized" (that word still has negative connotations
in this country).
I further conclude that within two years
after its introduction, people will be sufficiently upset by the increased tax rates that they'll be ready for phase II, the
restriction and eventual banning of all unhealthful activities. Driving without
a seatbelt is already illegal in most states. We could probably outlaw private
planes, skydiving, bungee jumping (already illegal in a couple of states), rock climbing, hunting, bicycling, motorcycling,
boating, swimming, and hang gliding as part of phase I, since all of these activities negatively affect the insurane companies
bottom line. Although I advise we wait and implement slowly.
But not until phase II is fully in place
will the public be ready for the banning of tobacco, alcohol, red meat, milk, cheese, and eggs. Resistance from farmers will
of course not be a problem, since we will be buying their total output at above-market rates and shipping those products to
leaders of compliant countries at taxpayer expense.
Once the public accepts the necessity of
supplementation of the water supply with lithium, nominally to prevent expensive mental disorders, it's a small step to also
introducing our fourth-generation hypnotic/compliant drugs. Those
will work best when combined with euphoriants added in strategic doses just before and during major speeches and policy announcements. This should be fully in place before the next election.

Is McCain Insane? Is This The Straight Talk?

If this isn't an April Fool's Joke... Then I'm Worried
CNN: Military Sources Respond To McCain’s Escalation Remark With
‘Laughter Down The Line’
Yesterday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told radio host Bill Bennett that President Bush’s escalation is working. “There are
neighborhoods in Baghdad where you and I could walk through those neighborhoods, today,” he said. Today, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked McCain why Americans still aren’t able to safely leave the Green Zone
in Iraq, the senator replied that Blitzer
was giving three-month-old talking points:
General Petraeus goes out there almost every day in an unarmed humvee. I think you oughta catch up. You are giving the
old line of three months ago. I understand it. We certainly don’t get it through the filter of some of the media.
But according to CNN reporter Michael Ware, who has been in Iraq
for four years, McCain is “way off base.” He stated, “To suggest that there’s any neighborhood in this city where an American
can walk freely is beyond ludicrous. I’d love Sen. McCain to tell me where that neighborhood is and he and I can go for a
stroll.” from Think Progress
