It was not uncommon for Victorian doctors to encounter female patients with hysteria. Symptoms included ongoing anxiety, irritability, and a bloated stomach. 
The prescribed treatment was a "pelvic massage" to induce "hysterical paroxysm" -- basically, an orgasm, which would supposedly restore the woman to full health.

Today I learned (  #TIL  )

The phrase financial 'broker' comes from Old French "brochier"
The original Old French word "brochier" meant "to tap a keg", and comes from the word "broche", which is the tool one would use to tap a keg. Note the shared root with "breech" (hole, to make a hole) and "broach" (open a topic).

This was in turn adapted into "brocheor", more-or-less "keg-tapper", and came to be applied to all wine dealers.

Language change over time rendered this as "abrokur", wine seller, in Anglo-French; when the Normans crossed the English Channel in 1066, they brought the word as "brocour".

Eventually, the spelling was standardized to a more Saxon (i.e. Germanic) spelling as "broker", and the definition was expanded to include a wider variety of wholesalers and middlemen. Interestingly, the word's origin has nothing to do with the modern English words "broke" and "broken"; their spellings converged by chance.

The modern sense, in terms of investments, comes from the idea of middlemen - the broker takes your money, and invests it other companies, so you don't have to interact with each company on your own. Similarly, a "brocheor" would have taken the wine you manufactured, and sold it to multiple customers for you, so you don't have to have contracts with each of them. All the while, taking a small commission for themselves...

A new way to harvest honey

"The Flow frame consists of already partly formed honeycomb cells.  The bees complete the comb with their wax, fill the cells with honey and cap the cells as usual.  When you turn the tool, a bit like a tap, the cells split vertically inside the comb forming channels, allowing the honey to flow down to a sealed trough at the base of the frame and out of the hive, while the bees are practically undisturbed on the comb surface."  ~http://www.honeyflow.com/

i love South Park.  I love Comedy Central.  I wish we had more comedians pushing the limits, that is where real social change happens.  

if you watch the whole episode, it's genius.  he's shunned and ridiculed for being the Wheel of Fortune "n!gger guy", so Randy Marsh comes to grips with discrimination.  LOL.

today in the news

I'm no big fan of WalMart.  I haven't been inside a WalMart for years now, but there is something to be said.  Walmart recently raised the majority of their employees 'above minimum wage'.  
http://money.cnn.com/2015/02/19/news/companies/walmart-wages/

Most people (by that i mean the majority of Americans who work for a living) see this as a good thing.  However the investor class in this country (also known as the political, media, and religious strongarm) seems to see this as a negative business decision.  This particular headline equates WalMart giving raises to their employees with the Greece banking crisis....
http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/markets/2015/02/19/stocks-thursday/23664101/
Walmart, the nation's largest private sector employer, says it will pay at least $10 an hour to current workers within next year.

+Jim Buzbee  Costco, Whole Foods, and Amazon are threatening the Walton Empire.  WalMart is becoming the McDonalds of distribution and retail.  Cheapest price, cheapest service, and cheapest product.  Great business model if all the poor people have money...turns out more than 1.4 million "poor people" are WalMart employees.
