Here at the Big Bad Blog, we believe that a certain dilemma presents itself frequently. At a bar, a man has just finished one bottle of beer, and just begun a second. A brawl breaks out at this point, and the man wants to join in. But which beer bottle to use? The empty one, or the full one?
Luckily, scientists are on the ball, and ready to give us the answers we need. It turns out that empty bottles break with a higher impact energy, meaning that your deadliest option is also the one that spills the least beer.
It sounds like everybody wins in this bar brawl.
This article on direct(?) brain-to-brain communication (using a computer as intermediary) is quite interesting, but I think that it misses the point. The article states:
The system, developed by a team at the University of Southampton, is said to be the first technology that would allow people to send thoughts, words and images directly to the minds of others
No, it is not. There are technologies such as spoken lanugage and writing out there that do the same thing. Sure, they use audio and visual intermediaries, but they exist. And are equally direct as having an electronic intermediary (such as a computer).
Finally, Toyota has developed the worst marketing campaign of all time. Seriously — your marketing campaign is to stalk women? And then claim they consented? The woman is suing, but a criminal investigation seems warranted to me.
