Math, Population and Energy

Here is a informative video that is actually very disturbing. It gives a sobering look into our future if we continue on the path of consumption and consumerism. In fact it may be even later than we think for us to recover from the deficits that we are running in our exploitation of natural resources. It is a long video, a little over an hour so get comfortable, a cup of tea and prepare yourself for some math and science. I really wish there were some hard answers for the questions that are brought up below but education of the problem is a good start.

Seduction Style?


Your Seduction Style: Ideal Lover


You seduce people by tapping into their dreams and desires.
And because of this sensitivity, you can be the ideal lover for anyone you seek.

You are a shapeshifter – bringing romance, adventure, spirituality to relationships.

It all depends on who your with, and what their vision of a perfect relationship is.

What Is Your Seduction Style?

I could not resist posting this, oh well.

And what kind of Intelligence do you have?


Your Dominant Intelligence is Logical-Mathematical Intelligence


You are great at finding patterns and relationships between things.
Always curious about how things work, you love to set up experiments.
You need for the world to make sense – and are good at making sense of it.
You have a head for numbers and math … and you can solve almost any logic puzzle.
You would make a great scientist, engineer, computer programmer, researcher, accountant, or mathematician.

What Kind of Intelligence Do You Have?

Stain for Tea Cups

This has to be one of the coolest things I have seen for us tea drinkers. A cup that gets better with age. The more tea you drink out of it the more the pattern that is in the cup gets reveled. I am so glad I drink tea now if I can just get my hands on these cups.


“The interior surface of the cup is treated so as to stain more in predetermined places. The more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. Over time they will build up an individual pattern dependent on the users personal way of drinking tea.”– WOOD – Stain Teacup

RIAA boycott for March

Gizmodo is trying to put together a boycott of the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). I suggest you go over and read the why and how they are setting this up. A little excerpt below:

“Alright, we’ve been following the RIAA’s increasingly frequent affronts to privacy and free speech lately, and it’s about time we stopped merely bitching and moaning and did something about it. The RIAA has the power to shift public policy and to alter the direction of technology and the Internet for one reason and one reason alone: it’s totally loaded. Without their millions of dollars to throw at lawyers, the RIAA is toothless. They get their money from us, the consumers, and if we don’t like the way they’re behaving, we can let them know with our wallets.”

Go Get ’em and Give ’em Hell

Here is a great rant about all those useless gadgets and consumer electronic DRM (Digital Rights Management) laden crap that people think they need. It is finally good to read someone give all the idiots their do. Thanks Joel Johnson for telling it strait out.

” Consumer electronics are a joke. It’s everyone’s fault but mine. You assholes.

These guys want me to write a weekly column, but I hate consumer electronics. I hate marketing, and people, because you’re all so dumb. If your lucky and I need the money. I will…

And you guys ate it up. Kept buying shitty phones and broken media devices green and dripping with DRM… …to read the latest announcements of the most trivial jerk-off products, completely ignoring the stories about technology actually making a difference to real human beings…”

A must read at Gizmodo.
