According to Rolling Stone magazine (9/8/05 issue):
President Bush’s 5 weeks vacation in Crawford, Texas will be the longest presidential retreat in 4 decades…
President Bush has now spent 20% of his entire presidency vacationing at his ranch…
Counting in his other retreats to Kennebunkport and Camp David, Bush will end up spending less than 6.5 of his 8 years in the Oval Office…

And don’t forget! Bush is a war time president.

Brainwashing as diet technique

Blogged by edjusted as math — edjusted Tue 9 Aug 2005 12:37 am

This article in Time magazine talks about how scientists were able to influence people’s dieting habits by “implanting” a false memory. The dieting part doesn’t interest me so much as — hell-o! They were able to plant a false memory in 41% of their subjects with nothing more than suggestions and leading questions!?!? So what’s you’re favorite color? Blue. No yel– Auuuuuuuugh!

hiroshima photo gallery

Damaged Lens with One Frame
Although the body of Moto Mosoro (54 at the time) was not found, a part of her burned head was discovered on September 6, one month after the atomic bombing, at a place 1,500 meters from the hypocenter. This was taken from an eye socket.

This picture and quote are from the “Hiroshima” archive of photographer Hiromi Tsuchida. The 3-part photo gallery can be found here. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima (for those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit), is very simple and not at all fancy, but there’s a quiet grace in the sadness that
surrounds the exhibits. It’s like visiting ghosts of a past that you weren’t a part of. (Today is the 60th anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing.)

The rational response to terrorism

Blogged by edjusted as general — edjusted Sat 6 Aug 2005 1:20 am

Recent article in the Economist about how people really respond to terrorism. Interesting how overcoming your fears about terrorism seems to be an “all or nothing” decision.

People do not fight their fear each time they step on a bus; they choose to overcome it once and for all, or not at all. Once a person has come to terms with terror, it makes little difference to him whether he gets on a bus twice a day or once a day.

wow wow wow wow wow

“Don’t get into a lather over sweatshops”

Blogged by edjusted as math — edjusted Sat 6 Aug 2005 12:26 am

Interesting article presenting the “other side” of sweatshops.

People choose what they perceive to be in their best interest. If workers voluntarily choose to work in sweatshops, without physical coercion, it must be because sweatshops are their best option.

this isn’t really a ferrari…

what a great idea for those of us who’re easily distracted and don’t catch the first part of what people are saying! this little invention records and repeats the last 10 seconds of whatever conversation you’re having!
