Earth

Just a quick thought for today… I was just reading an article about cinnamon having beneficial properties and maybe even healing properties for brain disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. A few months ago I read about pomegranates, and how they improve the resiliency of cells and make them more resistant to aging. And every high… Read more »

Cryogenics

I saw an advertisement the other day asking me if I’d like to be frozen. Hey that sounds like fun, I thought. I got a few hours to kill. Why not? As it turns out, it had nothing to do with the movie Frozen, and even less to do with that Elsa threesome I had… Read more »

Cosmetics 2

A few weeks ago, I posted a blog entry about cosmetics and all the wonderfully disgusting things that go into making them. There was one bright spot though- I mentioned a website called Naturally Betsy, that makes face and body care products from all-natural ingredients. I received quite a few comments and emails about the… Read more »

Talent

So this week I spent about four days working on a programming issue for a customer. I was totally stuck on how to program a specific feature. Now, I’m a pretty good programmer; I’m probably ten times better than most of the programmers who do what I do. But after a few more days of… Read more »

Cosmetics

My wife subscribes to a website called Birchbox that carries beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products. She loves it. She usually waits on the curb for the mailman to deliver her package each month. It’s kinda funny to see her out there in a lawn chair, with a Starbucks in one hand and a cell phone… Read more »

3D Printing

So last week I was in training- learning all about 3D printers, and I have to say, it was the coolest thing ever. Well the second coolest thing ever, since I still hope to have that threesome with Katy Perry and Wonder Woman. A 3D printer is capable of creating objects. It resembles an ink… Read more »

Peanut Allergies

The other day I read about a kid from New York who died from a peanut allergy. He was eating a granola bar which contained peanuts or traces of peanuts and he immediately went into anaphylactic shock. His mother got him to the hospital pretty quickly, but it was too late. He lapsed into a… Read more »

Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey

One of my favorite new shows of the season is Cosmos, a glittery remake of the old Carl Sagan series about science and innovation. This time however, the series is chock full of visually appealing graphics, lively animations, and with all due respect to Carl Sagan, a narrator who doesn’t come off as a know-it-all…. Read more »

The Afterlife

The other day I was asked for my opinion on “existence”. Yeah. I couldn’t believe it either. My idea of deep thinking is deciding what flavor ice cream I should buy before sitting down in front of the TV and smoking a bowl. Ok. I’m exaggerating. I have been trying to curb the smoking as… Read more »
