[Pseudo-Science]
[Vanity]
There are a number of new agey articles floating around the facebooks and internets promoting a very old concept called, "biocentrism", that existence is all subjective and the product of our own minds.

A seemingly-respectable medical doctor has recently published a book and is now on a big press-push, hyping this notion that consciousness lives on after death of the physical body. Let's take a look at how "sciencey" this "doctor" actually is...

Florida Criminalizes Display Of "Truck Nuts"

[Vanity]
The Florida Senate on Thursday passed an amendment to impose a $60 fine on Truck Nutz, one brand name for the novelty item on vehicle trailer hitches that resemble the dangling southern end of a northbound bull. The proposal would make displaying bull genitalia reproductions on a vehicle subject to a $60 fine, moving violations and points against a driver license.

Will the legacy of truck-testicle discrimination in this country never be put to rest?

"Kathy Griffin’s offensive remarks will not be part of the E! telecast on Saturday night," the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said in a statement Monday. In her speech, Griffin said that "“a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."

Update: Instead of helping feed the poor or provide some other valued service, a christian group in Tennesse, the Miracle Theater group spent $90,440 on a full-page advertisement in USA Today that ran nationally Monday, proclaiming "enough is enough." in response to Kathy Griffin's acceptance speech.

A Chinese match-making cruise will set sail later this month up the Huangpu River (I don't know how to pronounce it, either). To get on board, men must be worth at least 2 million yuan ($250,000). Women, however, must be "attractive in every category," whatever that means. Over 1,000 women have applied to get on and so far only 30 have been accepted. That is a rejection letter that's GOT to be bad for your self-esteem.

Only the best survive in Wall Street's cut-throat world of investment banking. Alpha males rule the pack and the competitive instinct is essential. A job application to UBS which appears to embrace this philosophy a little too enthusiastically has become a cult hit in the financial world. Purporting to be from a Yale student named Aleksey Vayner, the self-aggrandising document has zipped from bank to bank by e-mail.

See the video everyone is talking about where this guy takes self promotion a little too seriously. But for Aleksey Vayner, impossible is nothing.

7-7-7 The Mark of the Wedding Chapel

Even though it's nine months away, plan now to stay off the roads next year on the first Saturday of July. Unless you want to be bumper-to-bumper with limos, that is.

Why? Because the date will be 07-07-07.

That has the wedding industry spinning like a Vegas slot machine as scores of engaged couples scramble to wed on that triple-lucky day.

I know what you're thinking, I'm going to tag this for stupid people, but I actually think it's kind of clever. It would be a lot harder for the men to forget their anniversary when their wedding date involved such a profoundly boneheaded decision. One less reason to not spend the night in the barn is always a good thing.

The transvestites first appeared in March when they raided Magazine Street like a marauding army of kleptomaniacal showgirls, said Davis, using clockwork precision and brute force to satisfy high-end boutique needs."

Some say when you die, that's it; others believe in heaven and hell. And then there's that contingent of wealthy, narcisisstic men who think they've figured out a way to cheat death, and their heirs at the same time. How? Well, elementary dear Watson, freeze yourself in liquid nitrogen when you die, expecting to be revived later, and leave all your money to yourself!

The concept is called a "Revival Trust" and as expected, there seems to be no shortage of lawyers and financial planners promoting this bizarre scheme.

A busy time in the U.S. Senate, the "world's greatest deliberative body." Judging from the 2006 conference report, the Senate subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education -- Chairman Arlen Specter (R), ranking member Tom Harkin (D) -- has been deliberating especially hard:

"Sec. 221. (a) The Headquarters and Emergency Operations Center Building (Building 21) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is hereby renamed as the Arlen Specter Headquarters and Emergency Operations Center.

(b) The Global Communications Center Building (Building 19) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is hereby renamed as the Thomas R. Harkin Global Communications Center."

Good to see that even in the viciously partisan atmosphere of today's politics, Republicans and Democrats can still work together to carry out the people's business.

The latest in the Bill O'Reilly sexual harassement scandal is a bombshell: O'Reilly's camp is demanding that tapes of the infamous sex conversations (which were previously not confirmed to exist), be handed over to them. Other camps imply that there are all sorts of wheeling and dealing to settle the O'Reilly case before the public has a chance to hear the tapes and that they be destroyed.

If Mackris is hurting for money, there's a big campaign to purchase the tapes and keep them from being destroyed. People will apparently pay any price to hear O'Reilly's sexual ode to middle eastern food.
