Did you know that Taxi Cab companies are trying to end Taxi Neutrality? They are saying that restaurants and bars are freeloaders profiting on their infrastructure, and they plan to drive customers to restaurants at 5mph unless that particular restaurant purchases a high speed customer transportation service from them. And that's in addition to the normal cab fare you already pay.

In addition, straw manufacturers are trying to end Straw Neutrality, arguing that juice bars are freeloading on their product, and want juice bars to pay them for a premium beverage suction plan for transporting lemonade from the glass to the customer's mouth.

Airlines also want to end air travel neutrality, arguing that touristic destinations and hotels are freeloading on their routes, and want hotels and vacation destinations to pay them to fly customers there. And that's in addition to the air fare you already pay, of course.

Do any of those sound absurd? Well, that's because they are all totally made up. I just invented them. But something very similar is happening on the Internet, and this one is true: internet providers are trying to end Net Neutrality using the exact same logic: web services will have to pay them to be able to provide a service to you. And that's in addition to the normal price you already pay for internet access.

Lol! Hilarious!
 
laughter is free medicine, it releases endorphins in the brain, relaxes us :)    lol

http://www.everydayhealth.com/columns/grossman-a-healthy-longevity/laughter-and-longevity/ has a laughter article written by the doctor who co-authored a book about Physical Immortality with Google Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil ► http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Nine-Steps-Living-Forever/dp/1605292079.  

Happiness is a choice to a great extent ► http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/09/scientific-proof-that-you_n_4384433.html.  There are always 100 reasons to be happy, if we look at life from different lenses.  :)  ☻♥☺  Ron Gutman: The hidden power of smiling is a 7 min TED talk video explaining more on the hormone chemistry of smiling/laughing and being happy. :)


More laughter will lead to World Peace, as we take ourselves less seriously, and then it will lead to PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY

Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  

Calico is not alone.  Other billionaires have started Immortality efforts.  There are scientists within these projects who even talk of connecting the soul body (not all believe in it though) with the immortal android bodies of the future. Mystics and emperors have sought physical immortality for millennia.  Modern astral researchers and mystics (vallalar.org) have thought of Immortality for many decades.  
ASPR OBE Experiment 1983 is a 25 min video about some ESP experiments.  In the video Alex Tanous explains at 7min22sec how the scientific understanding of astral energy will enable us to attain physical Immortality - just like understanding electricity brought us a lot of progress in medicine.  

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)

This is not a gaming controller. It is the most incredible steering wheel ever made.

Take an inside look at Formula 1's ridiculously smart nerve center: http://wrd.cm/1jdJDL3

Nature and it's majesty.
 
As colorful, bizarre-looking, and environmentally important as we know corals and sponges are, their simple day-to-day life is hidden. They might not seem exciting when it comes to motion. However, their speeds simply happen to be out of sync with our narrow perception. This clip shows them from an unusual perspective: high magnification, focus stacking, and fulls-spectrum illumination that brought out fluorescent colors.

Learn more about what you see in my post: http://notes-from-dreamworlds.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/slow-life.html

To make this little clip I took 150000 shots. Why so many? Because macro photography involves shallow depth of field. To extend it, I used focus stacking. Each frame of the video is actually a stack that consists of 3-12 shots where in-focus areas are merged. Just the intro and last scene are regular real-time footage. One frame required about 10 minutes of processing time (raw conversion + stacking). Unfortunately, the success rate was very low due to copious technical challenges and I spent almost 9 long months just to learn how to make these kinds of videos and understand how to work with these delicate creatures.

Enjoy on a big screen to be able to see individual cells in sponges and tiny details in corals. Available in 4k.

I told these scam artists I didn't want my payment on the 1st and they did it anyway. Now I'm in a financial hardship situation!

Every time I go here they never have the parts needed for my vehicle. Had my tires replaced and they stole my chrome valve caps.

The customer waiting lounge is infested with insects. Very uncomfortable having to swat knats and brush off ants every 30 seconds! And there's a big spiders web right next to the children's toys. Child endangerment...
