The Bleeding Edge


In computer science, bleeding edge is a term that refers to technology that is so new (and thus, presumably, not perfected) that the user is required to risk reductions in stability and productivity in order to use it. It also refers to the tendency of the latest technology to be extremely expensive. The term was first coined by Peter Barus, a Superbase programmer.

The Pioneer Plaque


This plaque was included on the Pioneer 10 & 11 unmanned spacecraft, the first man-made objects to leave our solar system. It’s supposed to show the figures of a man and a woman along with several symbols that are designed to provide information about the origin of the spacecraft.

I guess the first thing we want other alien species to know about us is that we walk around naked behind large shields to protect us from poorly drawn stars. Awesome.

Pro or Con - Functional Alcoholism


pro:

Functional alcoholism is like the fabled tree falling in the woods: if you’re drunk and no one can tell, are you really drunk? Sure you are - and if you’re at work, you’re getting paid for it! Function alcoholism rocks!

con:

Functional alcoholism is the threadbare Astroturf welcome mat to nonfunctional alcoholism, and anyone who votes “pro” should immediately check him- or herself into a rehabilitation facility.

Nude Merkel Montage Raises.... Eyebrows

It's not the first time the Polish weekly Wprost has gotten in trouble in Germany. This week, the cover depicts Chancellor Angela Merkel breast-feeding the Kaczynski twins. But it could have been worse, the editor-in-chief points out. At least they used a 21-year-old model.


It's not exactly how one expects to see German Chancellor Angela Merkel: The broad, friendly smile seems completely at odds with her open blouse, two bare breasts spilling out. On each breast, one of Poland's governing Kaczynski twins is affixed -- Prime Minister Jaroslaw is suckling on the left, President Lech has attached himself to the right. One of them is holding up the "victory" sign right in Merkel's cleavage.

Aurora Borealis | Northern Lights


An aurora is an electro-static phenomenon, characterised by a bright glow and caused by the collision of charged particles in the magnetosphere with atoms in the Earth's upper atmosphere.

An aurora is usually observed in the night sky, particularly in the polar zone. For this latter reason, some scientists call it a "polar aurora". In northern latitudes, it is known as the aurora borealis, which is named after the Roman goddess of the dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for north wind, Boreas.

Dear Miriam - Letter of The Day

Click for Bigger

Dear Miriam,

The other day I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual.

I hadn’t gone a hundred yards down the road when my engine conked out and the car juddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband’s help. When I got home I found him in the bedroom. I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was parading in front of the wardrobe mirror dressed in my underwear and high heel shoes, and he was wearing my make up.

I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for 12 years. When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he had dressed up in my lingerie because couldn’t find any of his own underwear. But when I asked him about the make up, he broke down and admitted that he had been wearing my cloths for six months. I told him it had to stop, or I would leave him.
He was made redundant from his job six months ago, and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I have him the ultimatum, he has become increasingly distant, and I don't feel I can get through to him any more. Please can you help?

–Mrs. B, Essex

Miriam says... A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults in the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber.

Researchers Light Up for Nicotine, The Wonder Drug

Smoking may be bad for you, but researchers and biotech companies are quietly developing pharmaceuticals that are decidedly good for brains, bowels, blood vessels and even immune systems -- and they're inspired by tobacco's deadly active ingredient: nicotine.


Nicotine acts on the acetylcholine receptors in the brain, stimulating and regulating the release of a slew of brain chemicals, including seratonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. Not surprisingly, the first scientific work that identified these chemicals and how they affect the body came out of nicotine research -- much of it performed by tobacco companies.

Does a Racehorse Pee Like a Racehorse?

How much does a racehorse pee? A lot. Horses typically produce several quarts of urine every four hours, for a total of about 1.5 to 2 gallons per day. (By contrast, an adult male human pees 1 or 2 quarts per day.) The stream, usually one-third to a half-inch in diameter, can last up to 30 seconds. In general, the larger the animal, the more it pees.

Airport Security Confiscates Drink But Not Knife

Nick White managed to take a seven-inch knife on board a plane, moments after his 13-year-old daughter had a bottle of fizzy drink confiscated by security staff. Nick realized that he had the lock knife in his pocket as he reached the security gate at Birmingham Airport in the United Kingdom.


So he put it though the scanner with the rest of the contents of his pockets - and to his surprise, security staff failed to spot it. But his daughter, Shannon, was not so lucky because they confiscated a soft drink from her as part of increased security measures at the airport.

Citarum Is this the World's Most Polluted River?

It was once a gently flowing river, where fishermen cast their nets, sea birds came to feed and natural beauty left visitors spellbound. Villagers collected water for their simple homes and rice paddies thrived on its irrigation channels.


Today, the Citarum is a river in crisis, choked by the domestic waste of nine million people and thick with the cast-off from hundreds of factories.

So dense is the carpet of refuse that the tiny wooden fishing craft which float through it are the only clue to the presence of water.
