Went to see “National Treasure” yesterday, and don’t beleive the bad reviews, this was a good movie. Go see it.
Now, some scary stuff:
” In Minnesota, pigs are being born with human blood in their veins.
In Nevada, there are sheep whose livers and hearts are largely human.
In California, mice peer from their cages with human brain cells firing inside their skulls.
These are not outcasts from “The Island of Dr. Moreau,” the 1896 novel by H.G. Wells in which a rogue doctor develops creatures that are part animal and part human. They are real creations of real scientists, stretching the boundaries of stem cell research.
Biologists call these hybrid animals chimeras, after the mythical Greek creature with a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a serpent’s tail. They are the products of experiments in which human stem cells were added to developing animal fetuses.”
I’ll just recommend you read “The Island of Dr. Moreau” and “Frankenstien”
Search for the Holy Grail continues:
“For 250 years, the cryptic inscription has exercised the minds of Britain’s finest theologians, historians and scientists, including Charles Darwin, Josiah Wedgwood and, most recently, the Second World War code-breakers of Bletchley Park.
But an anonymous American researcher was credited yesterday with the best stab yet at what the letters D.O.U.O.S.V.A.V.V.M. – carved on the Shepherd’s Monument at Lord Lichfield’s Shugborough estate in Staffordshire – might actually signify.
The answer appears to be “Jesus (As Deity) Defy””
Actually, that sounds kinda boring.
Earlier I told everyone about silver nanoparticles, now there’s gold street signs for your colon:
“IN an Australian first, men are having tiny grains of gold inserted into their prostates to help doctors treat their cancer.Three pieces of 24-carat gold, similar in size to a grain of rice, are inserted into the prostate using an ultrasound probe through the rectum.
A trial of 10 men is under way at the Ballarat-Austin Radiation Oncology Centre in Victoria with results expected in a year.
Consultant radiation oncologist Andrew See said while the procedure was not pleasant, men were happy to suffer a little pain if it made their cancer treatment safer.
The gold acts like a global positioning device to allow doctors to target the prostate with radiation more accurately than before.”
Wow, who thought of that one?
Chicago is selling off all its old crap trying to balance their budget:
I, the expert antiquer and nutty collector, found nothing of interest in any of the items being sold. They had some old street signs, chunks of rock, women’s clothing, and parking meters. You’d be better off spending your money at thinkgeek.com [http://www.thinkgeek.com/index.shtml]
Some dude is out to destroy Coca Cola:
