naked much?

"Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others."

I cried aloud with mirth and merriment.

Yeah so this is actually pretty widely available... and thus I've seem it before but...
This is just such a funny write-up

Audi-Oh iPod Vibrator

Portable Media filed under Portable Media : iPod

audioh1.jpgHere's one for the ladies. The Audi-Oh audio vibrator buzzes in time to any music you run through its audio jack. Want a quickie? Plug in some polka. Want a long and luxurious barn burner? Try Gregorian chant interspersed with NIN. The possibilities are endless. You can even hit a club or go see the Boston Pops and pipe the live audio into your love flower.

I don't think the world of audio-didonics has been sufficiently explored and this is really a step in the right direction. Soon women will no longer need us. They'll just need a long train going by. It's available for $69.95 at the aptly-named Grand Opening.[Thanks, Katie]

The rest of the site is pretty annoying but... I don't entirely disagree with them.


wether or weather
I always get these three confused... less the weather than the other two... silly french immersion making some things so hard for me to spell...
'cause I'd sure hate to be saying "castrated ram or not you agree with these arguments" but I'm sure I have on more than one occasion

I also do less than well with which and witch and wich ...apparently wich is not a word however :( except as an acronym or an abreviation/suffix refering to a sandwich

stupid Google maps tricks

go to google maps canada and then zoom in all the way.... university of winnipeg
 ok maybe not much of a trick but better than middle of nowhere kansas that you get from the US site.... :)
and they could probably do better than Crewe for the UK....

I find it amusing mostly cause canada is so much bigger and emptier than either of the others.... that it's unlikly that it would randomly center on anything interesting  or even a road!

Re: Internal Contradictions

way to much time with the links today - not a great site but does have some interesting links such as eh? ah sweet sweet repetition I'll read it all one day ditto sweet wasted brain cycles

work was sopposed to happen somewhere in here right?

Internal Contradictions

not comix

damn they're actually all pretty damn good

But this one is gravy

Postmodernism Drinking Game

RULE ONE: If *anyone*, at any *time*, for any *reason*, believes in, supports, or likes a person, place, or idea, it's only because they haven't uncovered the fundamental contradictions underlying it and you are allowed to laugh at them because they are Less Jaded than you.

QUALIFICATION ONE: If *everyone* disbelieves in, attacks, or dislikes a person, place, or idea, it's only because they haven't uncovered the fundamental contradictions underlying that disbelief, and you may support that person, place, or idea, *and* you are allowed to laugh at the other players because they are Less Perceptive than you.

COROLLARY: anyone who explains the rules is a MODERNIST PIG.

Have a drink.

BBC on the deep impact comet crusher thing

'"Sixty-five million years ago, one of these things took out the dinosaurs," said Faulkes Telescope director Paul Roche, before the collision. Now, he said, "we're going to get our own back".'

K is it just me or is anyone else glad that the dinosaurs aren't around any more and that mammals were given a chance?

and by 'glad' of course I mean 'alive'

Go here

Yeah this is Sara's site where I am trying to get her to document the lead up and progression of her year abroad in Russia and Montreal

Wired: Unflattery Can Get You Anywhere

Unflattery Can Get You Anywhere

The following is a news item posted on CBC NEWS ONLINE

---Newborn dolphins and orcas don't catch any zzz's during the first few
months of their lives, a finding that scientists say raises questions
about the necessity of sleep.

To aid growth and development, most animals maximize rest and sleep after
birth, but the two sea mammal species seem to be an exception.

Researchers in California studied two adult orcas ( Orcinus orca ) and
their calves for five months at SeaWorld San Diego.

Young orcas stayed active 24 hours a day for at least the first month of
their development, the scientists report in Thursday's issue of the
journal Nature.

Mothers also got little sleep during this period, the researchers found.
They based part of their sleep observations on whether the animals kept
at least one eye open.

"Somehow these seafaring mammals have found a way to cope with sleep
deprivation, facilitating rather than hindering a crucial phase of
development for their offspring," Jerome Siegel, a neuroscientist at the
University of California - Los Angeles, said in a statement.

Coping without sleep As the calves grew, their sleep levels gradually
reached adult levels of resting five to eight hours per day floating
at the surface or lying on the bottom of the pool, rising
occasionally for air.

Bottlenose dolphins ( Tursiops truncates ) at a research station in the
Black Sea region of Russia showed similar sleeping patterns.

The researchers don't know how the cetaceans cope with so little sleep,
but they say it may offer some advantages to the calves: By moving
continuously, the risk from predators is reduced. The young maintain
their body temperature while they develop insulating blubber. The animals
can swim to the surface more often, aiding respiration. Lack of sleep may
help the animals' brains and bodies to grow rapidly.

The findings suggest sleep isn't required for development, raising the
question of "whether humans and other mammals have untapped physiological
potential for coping without sleep," Siegel said.

The results run contrary to previous research on rats and flies that
suggests forced sleep deprivation for two to three weeks can be lethal.
Based on those results, scientists suspected sleep is crucial early in
life for land-dwelling mammals.

Well I managed to be late for the meeting which was at 10 rather than 11 anyway...

but yeah... amazingly enough I don't feel too much like a bag of ass having only slept for 2 hours

so that was fun... I wonder how much useful work I'm going to be able to get done? it'll be entertaining really

and this ends the saga of last night
