Everything, is energy

Quote of the Day:

Gods die. And when they truly die they are unmourned and unremembered. Ideas are more difficult to kill than people, but they can be killed, in the end.

Neil Gaiman (from ‘American Gods’)

  1. Turd burgers in paradise?
    Turd burgers: Meat, for human consumption, recycled from human fecal matter.

    You know, there are all kinds of stories and retellings of how people, in a state of crisis and starvation, have resorted to cannibalism. And stopping to consider all things, one might grasp such a decision based on the final thread of survival.

    But… eating human sh*t? Even recycled, sanitized, seasoned & flavored human sh*t?

    No thanks. I’d rather slide down a 40 foot razor-blade into a bottle of rubbing alcohol, dying a bloody, painful death than even smell the stuff.

    As an adult; soldier, husband & parent, I found out quick that the sight of blood and bone and sinew does not bother me. But one whiff of crap and I can pop a really decent lunch into a lunar orbit.


  2. Feel like I’m staring at a magic eye image…
    …and not seeing it. So, what am I missing on the brain scan story? One of the scientists said their jaw hit the floor when they first saw the images. The images themselves don’t explain much to me, and the article only briefly mentions a theory about regions of the brain suppressing each other. Can anyone point out what I’m missing, or is that it?
