Child Prodigies!

I hope I caught your attention with the exclamation mark…I am excited about showing you guys this link to an awesome list of 8 child prodigies! I’m totally enthralled by people who are exceptional but honestly, the fact that these are all small children is just weird. Here’s how weird #3 is:

” Kim entered university as a physics student at the age of three…Later at the ripe old age of seven, Kim was invited to the United States by NASA to study, although to be honest we’re guessing he was invited because they suspected him of being an alien.” -Cracked

Yeah, I’m not sure about these kids. Probably just have dominating stage parents right? Here’s a link to a list of child prodigies.

Do you want warmth AND privacy while using your laptop? Maybe. But do you want THIS:

Yeah, I’m pretty sure you definitely DO NOT. Thanks to http://www.geekologie.com for this incredibly disturbing photo and article which can be linked to here.

Here are some comments I got from friends when I forwarded the link that I got from my model roommate.

“I’m scared.”

“Christmas is gonna be a breeze this year.”

I’m getting one, then nobody can see what I’m blogging…except on my blog, obviously.”

Good luck ‘Body-Technology Interfaces’

Bear Spray!

Kira, this post is for you:

STUDY SHOWS BEAR SPRAY EFFECTIVE!

“The study says bear spray is effective 98 percent of the time.”

I know some people who may be interested in this…

While catching up on my weekly news tonight I saw this interesting article with the word marijuana in the title. I was a little intrigued so I investigated. I didn’t even read the article, I won’t lie to you…I just stopped after I read $600 a day for smoking pot.

Whoa, I just got weird feelings from this

That’s what she said.

I’ve told you all before how much I love people.com but I’m slightly disturbed by what my eyes have just beheld! Sometimes People will post video clips of really good stuff that has been on tv and I happened upon this clip after clicking on the following headline

PEOPLE & Oprah Exclusive: The Pregnant Man Speaks Out

Obviously this sparked some interest…I expected like a fake pregnant man (you know, one with a huge tumor in his lower belly or some fluid build up) but NO. View pregnant man on Oprah HERE.

300 mpg…

But it looks like a spaceshit. I mean spaceship.

At least they’re getting the clean burning message out there: it’s mostly electric with a small gas engine and they say they are going to create a hybrid version as well.

Aptera, Greek for “Wingless Flight,” delivers on its name with a radically different vehicle designed to marry advanced aerodynamics with light-weight composite technology to create an incredibly powerful, yet extremely safe vehicle that is a joy to drive. The Aptera Typ-1 will be available in all-electric and hybrid models for less than $30,000. The all-electric model has a range of about 120 miles. The plug-in series hybrid has achieved more than 300 miles per gallon with a range of more than 600 miles. Both versions are loaded with safety features.

I don’t know about this one…I wouldn’t put a baby on a motorcycle and this is considered in that category AND you can put a carseat in between the two pod seats. Weird. I’d rather drive THIS:

The FCX Clarity is a next-generation, zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle based on the entirely-new Honda V Flow fuel cell platform, and powered by the highly compact, efficient and powerful Honda V Flow fuel cell stack.

I’m not trying to be difficult but…

I saw this article on Popular Mechanics and I was kind of shocked that they entitled it “25 Skills Every Man Should Know”. I mean, I’m no die hard feminist but I definitely balk at blatant bias (wow that was a nice alliteration). I feel like it’s perpetuating gender bias.  Now I may feel this way simply because I happen to know a chap who genuinely thinks women in general are inept but it’s still weird to see that headline. It’s so 1940’s. Anyway, aside from the “I am all that is man” tone, it has some good skillz.
