Copying a Meme from the_kaeru:

4 Truths and 1 lie:
  1. I wanted to grow up and be a fireman.
  2. I have always been told I don't work to my full potential.
  3. I am a beer snob.
  4. I have met Fleetwood Mac.
  5. I had, at one point, Lisa Leob's personal phone number.


4 Lies and 1 truth:
  1. I have been to five continents.
  2. I speak a non-english spoken language.
  3. I won the hairiest guy contest in high school.
  4. I try to eat healthy.
  5. I am addicted to Bryers Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.


So, can you tell which ones are true, and which ones are not?

The answers will be posted sometime tonight or tomorrow.

A year or two ago I saw an article where they had put electrodesinto a cats nervous system and they were able to extract the image of what the cat saw. The idea being, once you figure out how the images signals are sent, and where they go, you could make artificial eyes. A very cool and noble idea.

Then I was thinking, "Boy it would be cool if they could make it so you could record still and motion pictures from eyes. No need to carry a digital camera, and you really do get what you see. Or, in the Kobi Bryant case, the girl (if her story is true. I'm still undecided) could record the whole thing. Or even just as a matter of course, always have it recording, so if you end up being killed, you can provide evidence as to who did it. All noble ideas, but then something occured to me.

Imagine the lack of privacy this will create. Every time someone walks into the locker room or restroom, it's being recorded. You having sex with someone, it's recorded. Everything you ever do in front of others is recorded, and they would have the ability to share those images.

So, do we learn to accept less privacy to enjoy greater technology? Or do we fight technology to keep our privacy?

The movie tagline generator.

The first one that came up for me was:
He's a Nobel prize-winning white trash librarian trapped in a world he never made. She's a ditzy antique-collecting doctor who believes she is the reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian queen. They fight crime!
