Texas Scientists Given Green Light To Use Sex Offenders For Medical Research

So the Texas Congress has passed a new bill giving researchers permission to use the most violent, predatory, repeat sex offenders as guinea pigs for research. I am not so sure this is a good idea…

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not being sympathetic to these evil doers, I just believe that the only injection they deserve is that of the lethal kind.
Maybe I am being a bit too paranoid, or maybe I have watched to many superhero/sci-fi movies, where someone is trying to make a super soldier, they inject some bad guy with some super serum believing that there is no way on earth that anything could possibly go wrong, only to have something go drastically wrong… Said inmate now has super (insert ability here… let’s use “strength” for this example), can no longer be detained, breaks free from where ever the lab may be, and wreaks havoc on the world…

Only this isn’t sci-fi anymore… Texas is now sending hundreds of violent sex offenders to a specialized medical research facility… where they will undergo medical experimentation and testing…

Now before this bill was passed, medical testing at the human stage was done in groups where if you qualified for testing you would be paid a nice sum (Here in Canada you could get paid upwards of $3000 for a 2 week monitored stay).…

Fukushima radion to hit west coast by end of April 2014

Matthew 0 Comments

Late last year I posted my thoughts about Fukushima, sadly admitting that I hadn’t recalled hearing about it till then, despite the tsunami taking place in 2011… Sadly the affect the destroyed nuclear power plant has still yet to be fully determined.

Scientists predict that in less than 2 months the radioactive debris from Fukushima will hit the west coast of the States and Canada. That part is inevitable, obviously, I mean think about it, millions of gallons of radioactive waste being drained into the ocean, eventually those radioactive particles will reach the world over… However what astonishes me, is that neither the Canadian government, not the US government see it as being a issue.…

A 6 foot, 330lbs robot, built to save us… uh huh… why don’t I believe that

Matthew 1 Comment

robotOk, maybe its just me, and the fact I have watched to many movies and TV shows where creating a robot, in some way or another, ends in our destruction.

I came across this post on Reddit Yesterday which links to an article on Wired entitled “This 6-Foot, 330-Pound Robot May One Day Save Your Life“. My brain automatically started referring to BattleStar Galactica, mainly for the fact I am only now watching the series (10 years too late, I know).  Then the though of movies like Terminator, i Robot, and The Matrix (Thx to robotsongs for bringing up it up as I forgot to mention it).…

Another Email Scam – Gotta love these

Matthew 0 Comments

In the past I have made posts on some of the scams I get in my email.  I came across another one today just made me laugh.  Apparently it’s from Mr.Timothy F. Geithner, Under Secretary for International Affairs of the United States Treasury Department. There are several RED FLAGS that get raised while reading it. I will note each one with a number in red, like this1 and explain why it’s a red flag at the end.

How far do we have to bend over backwards before we snap? (Figuratively speaking)

1374122_10151985945300522_1029092397_nI was on Facebook today and came across the image to the left.  Now I live in Canada, and its no different here.  We have changed so much to be politically correct and socially acceptable that we have forgotten who we are.  In 2009 headlines were abuzz with the fact that schools in New Brunswick were no longer going to sing “O Canada”, our National Anthem, sadly for purposes of privacy, the exact reason Parents didn’t want their children singing was not mentioned.  (Story here)

Canada, unlike the States, is huge on Multi-Culturalism (The United States is usually refereed to as a Melting Pot) but why should our acceptance of other people’s faith, religion, culture and ways of life, make it so that we have to give up our own?  …

The U.S. Government has shutdown…

Matthew 0 Comments

I am not much for news, I listen to MP3s and watch Netflix, I don’t have Cable TV, anf I don’t subscribe to any newspapers.  So I get all my news from random hits on the web, if it peaks my interest, I do a Google search for more info…

picThe image to the left caught my eye on Facebook today and on any other day it would seem like a funny little saying, which is what I took it as at first.

It wasn’t until I saw a second post on Facebook that it started to click… Some government was shutting down.…

How long will the internet, as we know it, last?

Matthew 0 Comments

The question in the title is posed based on a few articles I have recent read on the web. The first was an article about a US ISP looking to charge websites if they want their content carried over the network, much like Cable TV.

An article on InfoWorld.com states that Verizon is trying to turn the web into pay-per-view. They are currently in court fighting to end the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) policy of Net neutrality. If they win, it would allow them to selectively block or slow traffic to certain sites and protocols. It would also mean that companies like Verizon could charge sites like YouTube and Netflix a premium to have their packets travel over their network unrestricted, which could in turn raise prices for sites that are already membership driven (Netflix) and sites that are currently free may have to charge the viewer to subsidize the cost (YouTube).…

Will the USA be responsible for the downfall of mankind?

Matthew 0 Comments

Now before you get all upset I am not talking about the American People, I know quite a few Americans and in general they are pretty nice people. No, I am talking about the idiots in power. Now again, before you start bitching, I am not talking about the President either (Ok, some of them have been pretty out there [cough]Bush[cough]), I am talking about those with the real power… the brainiacs (said sarcastically) in charge of the military.

I just read 2 articles that make my head spin. And both are from ages ago, long before my time. I am talking about the Starfish Prime Nuclear Test (on wikipedia) and Project West Ford (on wikipedia).…

I want this for my Home Office – The Emperor

Several years ago I came across the coolest office setup on Engadget.com but when I wanted to make a post about it lost year, I couldn;t seem to find it on their site.  Today I found it again on HiConsumption.com.

The Emperor is probably one of the most awesome setups I have seen for a computer desk/chair/build.  It comes in 2 different modles, and get this, its Canadian.  Their head office in Quebec, QC, qhich is about a 2 hour drive from my home in Montreal.  If I ever get a home office again, this would be the rig I would go with, if I could afford it the 200 series model.…

Hola! Watch Netflix USA from anywhere in the world! FREE!

After being a Netflix subscriber for a month and a bit now, I am very disappointed at how limited our selection is here in Canada, half the good movies are unavailable.

I have heard of other people using proxies and VPNs to fool the servers into thinking you have a States-Side IP address, but these in my experience can be limited. The ones I have found are either really slow, have low bandwidth, or cost quite a bit to have speed and bandwidth.

During my most recent search I happened across a site called Hola (Spanish for Hello?) which adds a plugin to Chrome or Firefox or you can directly install their app on Windows, Mac OS, and Android (sorry Blackberry Users, your left out, again).…
