Just came across this, fascinating story for a number of reasons:

 - Rabies: ~100% mortality rate (spoiler: until this story), which our body does actually fight! The virus just moves faster than our immune system can work

 - Comparison of brain to having hardware (the physical tissue) and software (consciousness?)

 - A strange wonderment that the idea of Zombies might have come from the disease of Rabies:
    > Twitchy behavior by host with loss of ability to communicate/be coherent (almost acting like walking death)
    > Want of host to bite - and thus infect - others
    > Sensitivity/fear of light (and water)


After a quick Google search, I just realized I wasn't the last person to link the two. Sharing anyway :) ...
What do you do in the face of a monstrous disease with a 100% fatality rate? In this short, a Milwaukee doctor tries to knock death incarnate off its throne.

Ehh - I'm sure the once part is just a rough guideline.

This is the humor I grew up around.

Warning: It may explain a lot.

QT Sydney has the coolest elevators I've ever seen.

Thanks to an embedded Kinect, the music is customized to the number & position of people present.

Good legal playlists which I can filter by tags/themes? Oh - and I can listen to the playlists on my phone for free?!

Yes, please.

Thank you for the great find, +Benna Wise!

Love Zoe - her music, the perspective & her openness with her personal data. The music ecosystem needs help.

A quick & interesting read on the power of habit and how you can use it to your advantage (even if the story that motivated the article - and the article itself - is muy old).
