Evil Toilets for Cats

Corporations Gone Wild
I Wish This Was Just a Joke

Unfortunately, it appears my evil toilets satire is now partially a reality - for cats.


An article from ifixit.org:

DRM Kitty Litter: The Only Thing Stupider than DRM Coffee


I wish this was just a joke!

Comment in response to "Challenges in attracting students to research careers" on NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum

My Writing Elsewhere on the Web

I posted a comment on someone else's idea on the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum, where people can post ideas and comments, and vote on them:

Challenges in attracting students to research careers

Yes, many years ago, I thought I might like to pursue a scientific career. Good thing I didn't, though... because I ended up with an embarrassingly major interest in astrology, among other odd paranormal topics. :-)

Though, I guess my interest in odd paranormal topics actually might not have destroyed my scientific career if I had one, because I probably would have kept my mouth shut about my interest in odd paranormal topics. But, I'm sure that would have felt quite unpleasantly stifling.

I don't expect to get inspired to post anything else to the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum, but, who knows? It's probably more likely that I will if someone comments on my comments or ideas.

100 days of free videos from psychic medium John Edward

Paranormal

John Edward is a well-known psychic medium.

Of course, I don't know for sure if he or any other psychic medium is truly communicating with the dead. But, regardless, he's one of my favorite psychics, and I find his books, shows, etc. quite interesting.

Recently, I read in his official email newsletter that starting June 1st, 2015, he will be releasing a free video each day for 100 days.

You can sign up to see them at the following page from JohnEdward.net:

100 Day Evolution


One thing I find particularly neat about John Edward is that he's actually interested in astrology.

Here's an old newsletter of his where he wrote a bit about astrology:
