Not much I can do about genetics at this point. There's no way my wife will allow caffeine and the music thing was recently debunked. http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2013/12/muting-the-mozart-effect/ Other than that, it was a good article...

But the hardest thing of all, he says, was something else entirely. He hands me his iPhone so that I can scroll through some messages he's saved. One is from a woman chastising him for "distracting the children of the world." Another laments that "13 kids at my school broke their phones because of your game, and they still play it cause it's addicting like crack." Nguyen tells me of e-mails from workers who had lost their jobs, a mother who had stopped talking to her kids. "At first I thought they were just joking," he says, "but I realize they really hurt themselves." Nguyen – who says he botched tests in high school because he was playing too much Counter-Strike – genuinely took them to heart.

Chocolate Fantasia exhibition (Ocean Centre, Hong Kong)

'Harbour City invites Korean contemporary artist Jang Seung Hyo to hold his “Chocolate Fantasia” art exhibition, presenting a surreal chocolate world created by collage art. With the artist’s experience of chocolate and his crazy imagination, “Gallery by the Harbour” has transformed into an amazing illusion that crosses from 2-D to 3-D, from real to unreal, leading the audience to enter the artist’s fantasy world.'

This year I was too busy to pre-announce Fotanian Open Studios. I'm not associated with them but...

There is a conclave of artists working out of studios converted from former factory buildings in Fotan. Each year, for several weekends many of them open their doors to let you see their work environment and current works.

The usual way to see them is on the weekend take the MTR to Shatin and then take a mini-bus. Outside at several points in the area they hand out a map with the address and apartment number of the artists.

You go up the to the highest occupied floor in the factory building and walk down the stairs visiting the open studios on each floor.

I don't usually post jokes but these ones really sort out those with good general knowledge and those who didn't pay attention to the world of thought.

My daughter can't wait to tell the Roman ordering five beers joke at kindergarten tomorrow.  It'll be a good learning experience for the definition of awkward.

New McDonald's restaurant design in Hong Kong.

McD noticed a demographic change where more singles rather than families visited than before.

So now they have single seater units and benches that do not dictate how many people should sit at a table.

Also now, the cashier is separate from the food pickup area.

Santani, a 23-year-old girl from Moscow, Russia, creates these ultra-realistic fantasy animal dolls. The creatures are a mix of creepy, cute and amazing.

I have seen when people start substituting their own amateur opinions for learned thinking on important issues and other amateurs go in a frenzy of agreement.

Some documents were destroyed but some are fully available on the net. And to who can read them, they tell more than a long talk.
