Literate Chaotic / Re: ITT: Original Story Ideas
« on: Today at 12:47:17 am »
In the filming of Star Wars (1977) George Lucas subconsciously alluded to a series of gruesome murders he committed during film school. In subsequent decades he vehemently disavowed the original film in favor or recuts and enhanced editions that eliminated his coded confession. Painstaking fan made recreations of the original lead to a horrifying discovery.

If I had known what an Emo was (if there was such a thing) when I was a teenager, I probably would have considered myself one. I might even still qualify today at the age of 43.


AMUSING ANECDOTE: I recently discovered that my proto-combover hairdo, if combed down and to the right rather than back and to the left, as I usually wear it, is, in fact, Emo hair.

I think it must be destiny or something.

It's never too late!

Hey, we're the same age. When's your birthday?

I turn 43 in July.

Let's see...  I think I remember where I was when you were conceived, October '71, Cairo, vacationing with family.  How wonderful it is to have been so young :)

That's every day of my life, arguing with the morons of reddit's conspiracy sub,

It's been a thing on FB for a while.  You get someone talking about something totally unrelated.  Hobbies or boobs or shit like that.

And then outta nowhere, "Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, dude".

One of the advantages of not having idiots on my friends list.  Plenty of people I don't necessarily agree with, but no idiots.

I have been watching one formerly completely sane and intelligent friend, a PhD psychologist and tenured professor, spiral down some alarming rabbithole that may or may not be alcohol-fueled. I can't unfriend her because that would be callously cruel and I honestly would feel bad doing so after so many years, but I'm not really sure what I SHOULD do.
Me.. I SQUEEZE DEM TILL DEY JUICE...

When you go to a party with two lighters and come home with three lighters you've never seen before, that's lighterspace.

When you reach around in your pocket and can't find a lighter, and then reach into the same pocket later and find several, that's lighterspace.

When you buy a 6-pack of lighters and lose them all inside your home in just a couple days, only to find half of them a week later congregated on the kitchen counter, that's lighterspace.

How has the vast and magical power of lighterspace affected your daily life?

A one thousand year old Anglo-Saxon remedy for eye infections which originates from a manuscript in the British Library has been found to kill the modern-day superbug MRSA in an unusual research collaboration at The University of Nottingham.

Dr Christina Lee, an Anglo-Saxon expert from the School of English has enlisted the help of microbiologists from University’s Centre for Biomolecular Sciences to recreate a 10th century potion for eye infections from Bald’s Leechbook an Old English leatherbound volume in the British Library, to see if it really works as an antibacterial remedy. The Leechbook is widely thought of as one of the earliest known medical textbooks and contains Anglo-Saxon medical advice and recipes for medicines, salves and treatments.

Early results on the 'potion', tested in vitro at Nottingham and backed up by mouse model tests at a university in the United States, are, in the words of the US collaborator, “astonishing”. The solution has had remarkable effects on Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) which is one of the most antibiotic-resistant bugs costing modern health services billions.


I'm very bummed that there doesn't seem to be a research article to go along with that press release, nor could I find anything in a search of scholarly papers. :(
Me too, the idealist in me says it's cause novartis/Pfizer would have jumped it.  And the cynic, well, fuck the cynic :\

Great, then I was also lead to believe in an unreasonable expectation of privacy, perfect.
