Mind and Body

Why do some people get sick and others don't?



It's a legitimate question!

And no small part of what made Playboy magazine and its great articles such a huge success back in the 80's—or so I have been told.

Anyway, here is wishing you a speedy recovery, my friend—you know who you are.

(I wish I could lay my hands on that tantalizing article on the cover of the magazine, but, alas, it is nowhere to be found on the internet. Plenty of articles about the women of the armed forces, and Linda Ronstadt, though.)

Guitar Hero 2014, anyone?



No mention whatsoever of Guitar Hero at E3 2014 (´・・`) ?!



The rumor is that a new game is still in development, so there is some hope still that a franchise reboot will be announced—maybe after Summer?

Idiocracy was NOT supposed to be a "how-to" tutorial

Or was it, now?



It's been an insidious trend for quite some time—that has now become full-blown.

Witness, Arianna Huffington's take on the Huffington Post (one online news aggregator amongst many):



Personally, I think it's just awful.

It's awful for people to be manipulated/coerced into a situation where they are expected to waste their time watching and listening to some talking-head telling them what one could have rapidly read instead in easily one tenth of the time it takes to watch the stupid video.
