IT is an invention by Dean Kamen which is said to supposedly be bigger and more influential than both PC’s and the internet. Very few people know what it is exactly, and it won’t be released until 2002. Until then, then lid will be kept very tight. The people that do get to see it have to sign confidentiality agreements. And despite the lack of information, people are still writing books about it and investing money into it. How intriguing. Here’s one of the things suspected about IT:

In a private meeting with Bezos, Jobs and Doerr, Kamen assembled two Gingers or ITs in 10 minutes, using a screwdriver and hex wrenches from components that fit into a couple of large duffel bags and some cardboard boxes.

Check these to read more (one is better): one two. (I originally read about this at EBG)

One of my computer science professors has this nasty habit of sticking “kay” in between 80% of his sentences. Kay. It reminds me exactly of the counselor from South Park, but instead of “mmkay” it’s just “kay”. Kay. Actually, he sticks it in during almost any pause kay in speaking kay, not just in between sentences. Kay. We’re going to count the number of kays kay in one class. Kay. Otherwise, it’s inevitable that we’ll fall asleep. Kay.

The common reaction for most men when they discover that their wife or girlfriend or whatever was taken advantage of by another man is anger, and consequently violence, towards that man. They want to attack or otherwise physically harm that person. I was watching a movie, Pushing Tin, when I came across what I think is a much more practical and effective tactic: a psychological attack. Here’s the example from the movie. You should probably know that Nick slept with Russell’s wife.

Russell Bell: I was a little boy when my grandfather told me if you ever want to sleep at night don’t marry a young beautiful woman. I did. I’m a 40 year old man. I married a beautiful nineteen year old girl. I’ve learned to accept certain things. I know the dangers of it. I’ve also been on the other side. I’ve been the one following the little pink panties down the hallway. It’s torturous. We’re men. We can’t help it.
Nick Falzone: It’s not fair.
Russell: It’s a huge burden on us.
Nick: Jesus, you’re being incredible about this, Bell. I mean amazing. Really.
Russell: You’re married to a really beautiful woman yourself. You should understand.
Nick: Connie?
Russell: Yeah, Connie. She’s gorgeous. My God she’s gorgeous. You must go crazy when men gawk at her.
Nick: mmhmm
Russell: If this happened to you, if you were in this situation, you’d understand. You might not like it, but you’d understand.
Nick: I don’t think I would.
Russell: You might be surprised.
Nick: I really don’t think I would.
Russell: Human beings can tolerate a lot of pain. You never know ’til it happens.

Although I would say that I’m drawn to new gadgets, I was surprised by how interested I was in a site dedicated to remote control reviews: Remote Central. This review in particular held me captivated to the end. (thanks to wojo for pointing me to the site)

This little video clip looks to be an intro for a video game or something. It’s hard to believe that it could be real though; it’s just too funny. I keep laughing. “Somebody set up us the bomb!” I forgot where I found it, though. Yell at me if it was from you.

On Crack

Somebody should really do a study or two on the exact cause and effect of knuckle cracking. There’s only educated guesses on why it happens and how it affects the body. I twist and pop my fingers, toes, hips, knees, back, neck, to name some. But is it bad? Until we know we’ll have to settle with this: one two three (got these from memepool).

For Chocolate Lovers

I read over at Geeklife about this new chocolate delicacy . Now, some may disagree, but I think this sounds really tasty. This is what I would do. I would put a few of pieces in the bottom of a bowl, then a couple of scoops of ice cream, then chocolate syrup, and finally some bacon bits and a pork chop. Mmmm.
