"...unlike the actual demos, the desired demographics had no females in it whatsoever. I asked my supervisor why that was. Ever the pragmatist, he said, “That’s not why Disney bought us. They already have the girls’ market on lockdown.”"

This seems a much less intrusive option than the contact lenses that measure BGs. It only works for a day but that's still less inconvenient than multiple pricks each day.

“Hopefully we will be able to distinguish whether a shorter interval or longer interval in training works and ask whether we are excessively training people with no added benefit or saved lives, but with added costs and inefficiency,” said Barshi. “And to ask, even more importantly, are we are training people enough?”
NASA is investigating current training methods in order to adapt to longer missions for the journey to Mars.

I used to travel 3-4 weeks out of every month for work, but airport "security" got so bad that I switched jobs so I wouldn't have to deal with the TSA any more. They are worthless and don't make anyone safer, just more scared. #totalitarianism

"Wearing improper attire for location." Uh, if you're traveling, that's a given. "Exaggerated yawning." Clogged ears from previous flight or maybe tired from a red-eye. How is this list even helpful??
Fidgeting, whistling, sweaty palms. These are just a few of the suspicious signs that the Transportation Security Administration directs its officers to look out for in airport travelers, according to a confidential document obtained exclusively by The Intercept.

Did you know that this song is about my Aunt Barbara Ann? She was dating one of the Beach Boys at the time and they did a cover of the original song in her honor and played it at her high school!

"In the initial taste tests, the beer was so sour no one would tell how they were originally meant to taste. But when our noses falter, we have machines."
Back in 2010, divers off the coast of Finland stumbled upon some astonishingly old booze: champagne and beer preserved underwater in a 170-year-old shipwreck. Naturally, they had a taste. But now scientists are back with a rigorous chemical analysis of the beers.

This looks incredibly fascinating. I wonder how biased it is because otherwise, it would be a great intellectual workout.

"This tenth annual edition of the course will consist in a series of meetings aimed at giving priests, doctors, psychologists, teachers, and pastoral workers essential tools on the subject of exorcism, learning how to handle cases of demonic possession and distinguish them from disturbances of a psychological or medical nature.

Speakers for the course include experts from a number of disciplines: psychologists, medical doctors, priests, lawyers, theologians, and, of course, practicing exorcists."
The Vatican is offering a course on exorcism—or casting out demons—this April to teach priests and laypeople how to recognize and fight demonic possession.

This is a Brazilian prank show. About 3 minutes in, things get horrifying when a lone woman is stuck in a subway car as zombis clamber to get in. The absolute terror of it. Yikes!

I talk a lot about the eradication of the middle class. It's not imagined. The rich get richer, the poor get minimum wage increases to counteract inflation, and the middle class get screwed before becoming part of the poor.
What if innovation is driving economic stagnation and inequality? That's the question Charles Leadbetter analyzes in “The Whirlpool Economy” over at the UK Innovation Foundation's Long+Short site. He makes key points about the current relationships between innovation and the economy, ...

You know why there's a war on drugs? Because the pharmaceutical companies don't want to lose their money, especially since the US is the only country that allows them to add in the price of R&D to the prescription cost. This is why it costs $90 in the US for the same insulin you can get in Canada for $30.

Scatology work in Jerusalem reveals more about medieval trade routes. I ♥ history!

"The most common parasites in Jerusalem at the time, whipworm and roundworm, were present in all 13 samples. But two of the parasites, fish tapeworm and Entamoeba dysentery, were common in Northern Europe, but rare in the Middle East."
The excavation of a roughly 500-year-old latrine in Jerusalem has uncovered thousands of eggs from human parasites, including some that may have come from Northern Europe, a new study finds.

The 100 along with The Walking Dead are the only two shows I watch "live" any more (with a 15 minute delay so I can fast-forward through commercials).

Hang in there till the middle of the FIFTH episode (the fourth episode is still a little lame). THEN you won't be able to stop watching.

"Just hang in until you get to the fourth episode. You won’t look back. This series has made my heart literally race more times than I can remember. Yes, a fair portion of the cast is young and attractive. Yes, you’ll see some angst and some romance subplots. But! The story splits its focus between the kids on the ground and the adults on the Ark. And everyone is rather focused on staying alive so the teen angst isn’t overwhelming."
Shows on The CW get snubbed sight unseen too often. People have been more accepting in the past few years with the addition of series like Arrow and The Flash, but I’m surprised at the brush-off…

That's why I'm telling you to skip to the 5th episode if you can't make it through the cheese of the first 4 episodes.

Shiny things distract me from my ultimate goal of world domination!
Introduction
"For thirty years people have been asking me how I reconcile X with Y! The truthful answer is that I don't. Everything about me is a contradiction and so is everything about everybody else. We are made out of oppositions; we live between two poles. There is a philistine and an aesthete in all of us, and a murderer and a saint. You don't reconcile the poles. You just recognize them." - Orson Welles
