The Same Thing Can be Said about Eating . . .

. . . and weight gain.  Sometimes the obvious answer is also the right one.
Hangover cures, whether it be drinking coffee, downing a fizzy drink, tucking into a fry-up or even the 'hair of the dog that bit you' are pretty much a waste of time and effort, scientists have concluded.

John McAfee to the Rescue

It seems fitting that a "former Silicon Valley success story turned notorious" would figure out who was behind this infamous hack.  Of course, if John is right, this lone female is about to get swept into the fray.
Trove of stolen Ashley Madison data came from a woman who used to work at Avid Life Media.

Just Funny

That viscous company, Hampton Creek Foods, who tried to run poor, little Unilever out of business last year (see my prior post at https://plus.google.com/+MichaelSmithesq/posts/cSbpuScFhZx ) is now threatening our food supply, according to the FDA.  Though it may be healthy, 'Just Mayo' is not just mayonnaise, according to FDA regulations.  Does that mean the Mayo Clinic will be next (I have been there many times and could not find a single egg)?

Moreover, will this post be taken down by the FCC because is does not contain any viscous vitreous humor?  See http://archopht.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=625442 .
When regulators at the Food and Drug Administration this month accused the company behind vegan-friendly "Just Mayo" of mislabeling its product, they relied on a decades-old government description of what actually qualifies as mayonnaise.

Award for Lamest Excuse

"Well, uh, I was really hungry and just happened to come across this AK-47, Luger, and a train ticket to Paris.  I thought it would be a good way to get a meal."

He should be well fed in prison.
A gunman who attacked passengers on a high-speed train in France two days ago is "dumbfounded" at having been taken for an Islamist militant and says he only intended to rob people on board

The Most Wanted Men In America

By the Bush campaign, the Clinton campaign, the Paul campaign,  the Rubio campaign, the Cruz campaign, the Huckabee campaign, the Rubio campaign, the Walker campaign, the Christie campaign . . . 

BTW, I do not think they deserve such punishment.
Three Americans and a British man overpowered a gunman on a high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris, possibly averting a massacre, officials said.

Population Control

There are about 7,361, 378, 500 people on this planet.  That means  128.5 people per square mile.  Of course, some parts of that land are not particularly hospitable to 128.5 people, such as the center of Antarctica.  Moreover, the population is growing at a rate of about three people per second, while the amount of land is actually shrinking.   It would seem we are outgrowing our planet.

Kim Jong-un has a plan.  Based upon an ancient tradition, he will begin a ritual to reduce the population.  It is called war.  Of course, as the #1 weapons manufacturer in the world, we stand to profit handsomely from this endeavor.

My Left Foot

You may remember the story of Christy Brown, the Irish author who wrote "Wild Grow the Lilies" and "Down All the Days."  He is probably most famous for the movie of his autobiographical work, where Daniel Day-Lewis portrays him as the severely disabled son of poor and devoted Irish parents.  Well, this story has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Brown beyond the orthogonal fact that both have something to do with the left foot.  Both stories are remarkable and poignant in their own ways.
On the first-ever reported case of a condition dubbed "foot orgasm syndrome."

Up In Smoke

California's agribusiness is suffering due to the drought.  Its largest cash crop may be hit the worst, making America more dependent on foreign imports.  That means higher prices for consumers and lower tax revenues for the government.
California is ablaze with at least 19 simultaneous wildfires. And some of those fires have consumed entire marijuana farms, shooting smoke from the plants high into the air. But what many are reall

3D Big Deal

This technology will be bigger than the PC or the smartphone.  It replaces countless manual manufacturing steps, each with prohibitive costs.  It also will bring hardware development costs down to the cost of software development.  Such a change will be greater than the introduction of the assembly line.
The MultiFab 3D printer prints up to 10 different materials at once, saving users time, energy, and money.

The Future of Fashion

Clothes are commodities, manufactured for a few dollars and sold for little or much more, depending upon their brand.  The real difference between Hermes and Haband has been a matter of taste, not function.  

Well, leave it to Technology to take a commodity and turn it into a premium product.  This will change everything, everything you wear.  Apple may become the world's premier clothier, too.  BTW, they could buy Ralph Lauren with one fiscal quarter's net profits.
The shirt can read the wearer's heart rate, breathing depth, intensity of movement, energy output, stress levels, steps taken and calories burned.

El Niño, el Smiño

Everybody is talking about a Godzilla el Niño, which is like saying, "a monstrous little one."  However, the Old Farmer's Almanac, which is older and wiser than the Farmers Almanac, is saying 'poppycock'.  Bitter cold and snow east of the Rockies while high and dry in the West.  Not a popular forecast but it is certainly a vote for the status quo.  Part of being old, I guess.

I predict a mildly nauseating winter, with just enough for everyone to complain about.  Unless you live in Hawaii, where they throw those who complain about the weather into the volcano.

Bust a Gut!

This looks like a great way to deliver a baby, spirited and courageous.  Congratulations to the devoted mom and lucky newborn.
