It's always nice when my inner fantasies start becoming reality.
For the first time ever scientists from Boston University and ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Kyoto Japan have managed to use functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging or fMRI to decode ...

Good to know that we are addressing the important problems in the world today. Although I have to admit, watching a fat blue alien dance was pretty fun.

The "Are you serious?" moment of the week: Watching Team Umizoomi (educational-ish cartoon) with my almost two year old.... where they proceeded to explain that a hexagon has seven sides. Fail NickJr!

Internet, go invent this for me. I want to be able to tag items in Outlook, and then have toggles for each tag that will highlight any email items that match that tag in a certain color. So that I can quickly toggle on one tag, see all the emails that match it, toggle it off, then toggle a different tag. Important... I don't want this to hide any emails or resort the list just hightlight certain ones.

Because you saw the Peter Cushing movie? Or the other Peter Cushing movie? Or the Paul McGann movie (tv, admittedly)?

My understanding is that reflective thinking is usually used in unfamiliar situations when you have time to figure things out. Intuitive thinking is more appropriate when immediate action is needed and relies on situational characteristics, memories of similar situations etc. So "What do I do about this wild angry tiger?" is one situation where it would be better to use intuitive thinking rather than reflective thinking. While reflective thinking is equated with rational thinking and generally assumed to be better (at least in the west) intuitive thinking is crucial in all sorts of situations. When someone swerves into your lane in traffic you don't really have time to rationally plot out your response, and you'd likely die trying. All that said, when it comes to evaluating the existence of God, it does seem that reflective thinking might be more appropriate than intuitive.

If unsubscribing to your emails requires me to log in with a username and password, guess what? I'm marking you as spam. Even if I signed up for your crappy newsletter in the first place. If enough people do that, Gmail is going to start assuming that you are indeed spam.

There is no reason anyone needs to log in to unsubscribe to emails. That's just bad design.
