Seriously?!
 
Mitt Romney wants your airplane windows to open

I swear....you can't make this shit up. Romney said the following today: 

When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot...

If you didn't know, his plane had to make an emergency landing recently because of a fire. You know, nevermind about being sucked out, cabin pressure, 600mph winds, the freezing cold, and the fact that there's hardly any oxygen at 30,000ft - those windows should open damn it!

"If you choke to death on a hot dog, that is natural selection and management is not responsible. Thanks." 

Reminds me of the #DarwinAwards. lol

Best billion dollar ad-campaign Samsung ever had.
 
I can't make this stuff up

I'm sitting in a Starbucks doing random whatever over an iced americano. While I waiting for my drink, I watched a guy with his friend, pick up a newspaper; and start to remark on the Samsung Apple verdict.

Guy: "Wait, so what they're saying is, Samsung is the same as Apple?"
Friend: "I know, right? Makes me think twice about how much I paid for my Mac Book"
Guy: "Seriously"

Not 10 minutes later, a husband and wife, same newspaper:

Husband: "... Samsung's iPad is the same as Apple's iPad, and I paid how much for the Apple one? Honey, I told you they were a ripoff", after looking up the Samsung tablet on his iPhone.
Wife: "Oh wow," looking at the screen, "... that's a lot cheaper. Think we can return it?"

I put my Samsung QX410 on my table, and started to plug in, when he leans over to me, "Sorry, you don't mind if I ask, how much did you pay for your Samsung laptop?"

"Oh, no worries, it was $700." I replied. 

I watched shock overcome his face, like actual shock. He looked at me, blankly, for an awkward amount of time, "Mind if I have a look?" he asked. 

So, I obliged, and showed him a few things. He commented on Windows 7, so I opened up my virtual machine of OS/X... By the time the conversation was over, he was ready to kick Cupertino in the nuts, I think.

... Now, the punchline: 

I'm writing this post after the FOURTH group of Starbucks patrons have made the connection that Samsung is now the same as Apple. They don't know the details, they don't really care, what they know is Apple is saying that Samsung is the same as Apple ... and with one simple Google Search, you get prices that are basically half for what seems to be the same products -- for nearly everything. 

Two of these groups (including the husband/wife) asked me about my Samsung laptop, the second group noticed my Galaxy phone (also by Samsung)... Best billion dollar ad-campaign Samsung ever had.

Ich verstehe das (schweizer) Steuersystem nicht so ganz. Wäre jemand so freundlich, es mir zu erklären? Praktisch überall wird sich auf die "einfache Steuer" bezogen, mir ist jedoch nicht klar wie diese sich berechnet. Die Beispiele, die auf Wikipedia zu finden sind, tragen eher noch zu meiner Verwirrung bei.
Im Grunde brauche ich für meinen Vortrag am Ende nur die Höhe der Kirchensteuer in Prozent des Einkommens. Bei einigen Kantonen, wie z.B. Zürich werde ich fündig (10-14%), bei anderen Kantonen werden die Kirchensteuersätze jedoch nur in "Prozent der einfachen Steuern" angegeben.

Scientists Invent Oxygen Particle That If Injected, Allows You To Live Without Breathing

New Medical Discovery - A team of scientists at the Boston Children’s Hospital have invented what is being considered one the greatest medical breakthroughs in recent years.

They have designed a microparticle that can be injected into a person’s bloodstream that can quickly oxygenate their blood. This will even work if the ability to breathe has been restricted, or even cut off entirely.

This finding has the potential to save millions of lives every year. The microparticles can keep an object alive for up to 30 min after respiratory failure. This is accomplished through an injection into the patients’ veins. Once injected, the microparticles can oxygenate the blood to near normal levels. This has countless potential uses as it allows life to continue when oxygen is needed but unavailable. For medical personnel, this is just enough time to avoid risking a heart attack or permanent brain injury when oxygen is restricted or cut off to patients.

Worth reading, but better listening.

Carrying digital data in your skin sounds almost like science fiction.

Achievements like this one make me hope I'll have the chance to study at a great university like Harvard or the MIT and work towards realizing my own science fiction dreams.
 
I think our next step should be to genetically engineer the perfect being... the fifth element, if you will. ;)
