New Year, new direction

Yeah, I know its late in the year for resolutions, but I don't want to be cliche. Besides, there not even resolutions--they're goals that I moved from last years list to this year's. Anyway, I really want to focus on my writing more, as my current job: post-production on the Food Detectives show, is all night based. And surprisingly, there aren't too many day-time comedy shows.

Monkey Brains

According to K.C. Jones, in January 16th's Information Week. Scientist at Duke University were able to use the thought patterns of Rhesus monkeys, to operate robotic legs all the way in Japan. The Rhesus monkeys were placed on a treadmill with electrodes planted into their little monkey brains. The information gathered was then piped to Japan, where a computer interpreted the information for the robot legs.

So let me get this straight, we'd rather spend the time and money to train a damn monkey to walk on the treadmill, then walk on the treadmill ourselves.? God, I love America.

Jefferson Davis Highway

It always seems a little crazy to me, some of the things that are "normal" in Virginia. Have you ever been to Richmond? They have an entire street called monument avenue dedicated (mostly) to old civil war generals and such. They do have an Arthur Ashe statue, but that was a huge controversy. I know, I know the Civil War wasn't about slavery, or so they say. It was about states' rights. But a states right to own niggers? It seems to me, if you are going to erect statues of these people, they should be maintained with private money rather than tax dollars.
