Bond Girl Has 12 Fingers

October 21st, 2008

The latest and greatest Bond girl (Gemma Arterton) would appear to have six fingers on each hand. Take a look at this picture and decide for yourself.

Gemma Arterton - Six Fingers

I think it’s pretty neat. There was an episode of “The Simpsons” in which a scientific reports had concluded that in a thousand years, the normally eight-fingered residents of that world (4 fingers on a hand) would each possess ten fingers (5 per hand). I wonder if that reflected a similar study in the real world, which may have concluded that in a thousand years all humans will be born with six fingers on each hand? That would be pretty cool.

If we would, indeed, evolve to that point over time, then isn’t it interesting to see someone who has already crossed the evolutionary divide? Perhaps this new Bond girl is a time traveler in disguise.

    New Form of Windows In Development

    October 6th, 2008

    You may have already heard about this. Microsoft has a new operating system in the works. It has to do with cloud computing. If you are not sure what cloud computing means, that’s okay, neither am I. I’m sure with a little online research that problem could be solved. But I’m also pretty sure that in a few months or years advertising in general will make most of us aware of what cloud computing is used for.

    The reason I bring all this up is because I was wondering if and when Microsoft was ever going to put out another operating system. It’s wild to think about the fact that they are already coming up with a new one, when so many of us are still using XP. You may have seen the recent advertising campaign for Windows Mojave, a.k.a. Windows Vista. When I first saw that ad and I was only half way through it, I thought that Windows Mojave might actually be a new operating system. I guess Microsoft has decided to go to interesting lengths to sway public opinion regarding what some considered to be a failed OS. But I remember hearing a few months ago that some of us have been waiting for a first or second service pack upgrade before diving into Vista. I’m still fairly comfortable with XP. In fact, quite comfortable. In fact if I had any upgrade at my disposal, it would just be a faster processor and more memory. XP is awesome!

    But maybe the new cloud operating system will trump everything else on the market. That would be neat. But then again $1000 for a new operating system that everybody who’s anybody is using, especially during our current economic situation, doesn’t seem to attractive.

    What If Bailout Fails?

    September 22nd, 2008

    If the 700 billion dollar bailout fails… we're screwed!

    I saw an article about how last Wednesday might end up being known as "Black Wednesday," for being the starting point of our current economic turmoil.

    I saw a conspiracy post about how some guy months back had posted in a forum a ton of info about how around this time in September, things would start to go south.

    Black Tuesday = October 28 and 29, 1929

    Black Monday = October 19 1987

    Black Future Day = October 2008???

    Check this out, Wikipedia already has TWO "Black Mondays" listed for 2008:

    "Black Monday, January 21, 2008 – one of the biggest worldwide stock market crash since September 11, 2001. FTSE 100 had its biggest ever one-day points fall, European stocks closed with their worst result since September 11, 2001, and Asian stocks dropped as much as 15%.

    Black Monday, September 15, 2008 – a day in the Global stock market crash of September 2008, a worldwide stock market crash due to Lehman Brothers filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy and major investment bank Merrill Lynch was sold to Bank of America. Dow Jones Industrial Average lost more than 500 points, which is the biggest point drop since September 2001. FTSE 100 dropped 212 points, and it was the biggest one-day percentage drop since January 21, 2008. Hong Kong, Japan and Korea stock market suspended that day due to public holiday, and they fell over 5% on the following day (September 16)."

      Google Maps Has Pictures Of Your House

      September 8th, 2008

      Probably.

      I hadn't used Google Maps in a while, so it surprised me recently when I found out that they've got pictures of pretty much any location at street level. In 3-D! You can scroll around, look up, look down, look left, look right…

      What I did was plug in one address, and then another to get directions. Each step of the directions had a camera icon. Double click one of those, or one of the green dots in the map, and up pops a picture of that location. Pretty neat, and handy too.

      Get A Life Man – dot Com

      September 1st, 2008

      I recently stumbled across a pretty neat site:

      GetALifeMan.com

      There is enough room online for the most obsessive fanatics to spread their ramblings about what they think and do. Some people take a tiny idea, or a hobby, or even an online game way too seriously, and way too far. You've probably run into a few of these types before. I know I have.

      So someone made a web page that swiftly and clearly lets these people know there are better things they could be doing with their time.

      I especially like the picture they used. It's perfect!

      Now, instead of being blown off when we type, "Get a life, man," we can make an impact with getalifeman.com. Heck, we might even change some lives…

        Printer Is An Ink Glutton

        August 25th, 2008

        I thought this was interesting:

        How your printer tricks you into buying ink and toner when you don't need it

        The main idea is that some printers (or maybe most of them) have sensors that claim the ink is empty when there really is a lot left. Some people have found ways to fool the sensors, keep using supposedly "empty" ink cartridges, and still print a thousand more good quality pages.

        It benefits the printer ink industry to have printers that jump the gun and signal for more ink too early.

        Some printers can burn out if you fool them into using a near-empty cartridge, but others work fine even when ink is so low that the text being printed is barely visible.

        Methods of fooling the sensor: 1) Cover the sensor in dark tape. 2) Color part of your ink cartridge with a dark marker. More info at the link above.

        Terminator Love Bot?

        August 11th, 2008

        I watched the Sarah Connor Chronicles pilot again yesterday. John Connor offered Cameron a potato chip. At first it looked like she blew him off. Then he asked her what model Terminator she was, since she seemed different. She said, "I am," (meaning she was different from other Terminators) and ate a chip.

        So I was wondering… does this new storyline have to do with robots that can bear children? Or not even going that far, what if there was some sort of resolution where humankind and sentient machines were living together in the future?

        Could a Terminator from a post-war future come back to help out? What would the reason be for that?

        On another note, I saw a promo where Cameron exits the vehicle that exploded last season, and gets down to the business of treating her injuries by using a staple gun to secure part of her face…

        Oh! Big idea: Why don't the humans or Terminators in the future use the artificial skin technology to coat a duffel bag with living tissue? That way they could send weapons and technology through time… After all, the Terminator in the pilot hid a gun inside his own leg!

        Replace Oil With Another Limited Resource?

        July 28th, 2008

        I was thinking about our energy issues, and the thought occurred to me that there is money to be made if we don't opt for renewable energy sources. The location and quantity of crude oil make owning land in certain locations highly profitable, at everyone else's expense. If we were to discover or develop technology that produced free energy on a major scale, there would be far fewer people making money from fuel. "We can't let that happen!" comes the imaginary call to action.

        What if there is a direction we're heading in that has already been predetermined by Big Oil or some other entity? What if a few years down the line, we've successfully escaped the need for oil, only to have created a new need, for some other limited resource?

        Maybe some people think that's inevitable. But I was really hoping that we could use the technology at our disposal to make sure the next major fuel source is not limited in the least.

        Jesus Hit Puberty 2K Yrs Before 2012

        July 14th, 2008

        According to Wikipedia, Jesus was born between 7–2 BC/BCE. Wikipedia goes on to say that, "While Christmas, in honor of Jesus' birth, is celebrated on December 25, there is no indication that this was his actual birthday."

        Let's say it was. Say Jesus was born on December 25th of year 7 BC/BCE. So on Christmas Day in year 0, he'd have turned 7. In year 12, he'd have turned 19. One year past the draft.

        Now let's see what happens if he was born on December 25th of year 2 BC/BCE. On Christmas Day in year 0, he'd have turned 2. In year 12, he'd have turned 14. That age is just after most young males hit puberty.

        So, 2012 is 2000 years after Jesus either became an adolescent, or a man.

        December 21, 2012 is 4 days before Christmas, our arbitrarily chosen date.

        Fictional super heroes supposedly become really super when they hit puberty.

        What if 2012 marks the 2000th anniversary of Jesus waking up to his capability of performing miracles?

        Did that happen when he turned 14? 19?

        Or was he aware all along?

        I Can't Believe That I Barack Obama Have To Deal With This

        June 30th, 2008

        Watching the Daily Show one night, I heard Jon Stewart mention a highly specific, and highly made-up sounding web site.

        Then I went there.

        It was real!

        On Digg, someone posted the story and said, "Thought he was joking, but he wasn't."

        Well, I had already checked the WhoIs of the site, and found it was registered the exact day the Daily Show aired! So that would lead me to believe someone watching took the idea and made it real.

        If you go to the site in question, you can see that the creator wrote, "Jon Stewart said it, so I made it."

        What a world we live in where fictional web sites can become real in less than 24 hours.

        P.S. You can leave a comment there.
