If the sun doesn’t ascend in the morning will it make any difference to the many pessimists that hordes our lives and drink our wine? Should we not be afraid of the dark even though we realize that light will eventually seek its demise and destroy the pampered darkness mythology? And of course shall we let fear (that free roaming criminal) take charge of our decisions as we ourselves wander through the obscurity of time and fate. To rationalize the philosophy behind life itself, destiny, God and fate always seem to leave many unanswered questions. In contrast should we not ask these socio philosophical... Read More
A rancher in South Texas claims that she captured one of the legendary chupacabras and has the evidence in her freezer. A chupacabra is a mix of a hairless dog, a rat and a fox. For decades, the hybrid beast that sucks the blood out of livestock has been viewed by many with skepticism. But, now that farmers and ranchers are capturing these strange creatures right and left, people are starting to believe. Knowing that these beasts are out there gives renewed hope to people who believe in Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster. But, until they capture one of those, I am going to continue believing...

Many of us have sat down in front of our iTunes for the purpose of arranging our favorite songs into what I like to call “the soundtracks of my life.” Even if you’ve never heard of iTunes you likely have at some time sat cross-legged in front of your stereo surrounded by a pile of records, tapes, and CD’s in order to put together a “mixed tape” for yourself or someone you love. But have you ever wondered what your body would sound like if your blueprint, or DNA, was converted to musical notes instead of, well…you? Now, thanks to researchers from the University of California at... Read More
It's the middle of the night and you're fast asleep. All of a sudden you bolt upright in your bed gasping for air, sweat dripping from your pores, your heart racing. Is this the result of a nightmare, or something much more sinister? For millions of Americans, the above scenario is a nightly occurrence. Not only do they wake up drenched in sweat, they snore like freight trains, toss and turn all night, wake up choking, and have trouble staying awake during the day. And these are but a few of the symptoms that these poor people contend with. So what is this evil affliction that torments them... Read More

And don’t forget to check the balance in your checkbook, because the vacation I’m talking about won’t be cheap. But how much is too much for a chance to circle the globe in 80 minutes, see the sun rise 15 times per day, and crawl around on the ceiling like Peter Parker? If you said $4.1 million dollars then you’re in luck because a 3 day stay at the “Galactic Suite” space hotel will only cost you $4 million. (Or as Dr. Evil would say: Four miiiiiilion dollars) The Galactic Suite project began as a joke. The kind of thing you discuss with fellow Star Wars fans while indulging in... Read More

In the 1932 dystopia classic "A Brave New World" Aldous Huxley envisions a world in which the world state has complete control over reproduction. It is a world where natural childbirth is all but obsolete, and humans "engineered" to be perfectly adapted to their pre-determined station in life are produced in factories. Now, thanks to researchers from the University of Tokyo in Japan, we are one step closer to realizing his nightmare. This realization comes in the form of an artificial microfluidic chip designed to more closely mimic the womb for in-vitro fertilized (IFV) embryos. Traditional... Read More

Checkers, America's favorite board game is over, that's right, GAME OVER. You can't win, not today, not tomorrow, not ever! No more sitting around the pickle barrel playing "stump the chump". No more Howard and Barney playing a game at Floyd's barbershop, while Andy waxes on so eloquently...Why bother, it's been proven that even when "perfectly played" you can't win. The best you can hope for is a draw. People, meet Chinook, The Checker Champion. Computer scientists from the University of Alberta, Canada have designed a checker-playing computer program that, quite simply, cannot be beaten.... Read More
