Hilarious interview from last night’s Daily Show.
Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemna, gives a speech at Google about how our stomachs have brain cells, the evolution of eating, and other fascinating topics.
Meet Simroid, or “Pain Girl”. She is a dentist’s training robot, built to both experience and shriek with agony. When you greet her, just don’t ask how she’s doing.
In the midst of exotic Asia there is an ancient school of squatting: a method far superior to the mincing, European-style squat.
A revelatory documentary exposing the parallels between historical slavery and today’s exploitation of sugar harvesters…
An excellent documentary on the collusion of profit driven pharmaceutical companies and drug dealing doctors to create their own newly legal drug market.
It’s a brilliant scam, really; take a real disorder (ADD) that affects a small percentage of the population, then ascribe symptoms to it that parallel normal children’s behavior… and voilÃ , you’ve made billions!
Watch NIMH get busted on this very issue… marvel as they waffle and squirm, trying to identify a single symptom that cause 10% of boys in U.S. schools to be drugged.
The government has jumped forward to help, by sending Child Protective Services to take away reported “problem” children and forcing them onto drug programs. These agents are sent on the recommendation of elementary school teachers, not doctors. This is outrageous. And it will probably continue for years.
Take a whiff of the future.
