Psychedelic Fish

If you do find yourself experiencing intense fish-inspired nightmares, remember: It’s all your in head. But it was all in the salema porgy’s head first.

Need to Know

Salema porgy is available throughout the Mediterranean, particularly along the French Riviera. Most aren't poisonous, but just to play it safe, maybe order the salmon.

Pervasive behavior of the brotopia

I just cant understand why men think they are better. Its pervasive and it should be stopped. Its ridiculous to think that women wouldn’t be able to do the same thing if they are put in the same position. Apparently they are not on the same level according to this article. Its a shame. Anyone engaging into this kind of activity should be treated the same. Rules are meant to be broken but the consequences should be equal. Its plain stupid.

Meditation is about keeping the mind clear; thinking deeply about reality. It’s about thinking about our emotions, asking ourselves ‘Why do I feel angry?’ and coming to understand the advantages and sound basis of positive emotions like warm-heartedness.

Booze leading to cancer

My relation to booze has been on a downside lately. I’m reducing my consumption dramatically because of a few reasons. The most important one is that the alcohol that I like is a tad expensive. I don’t drink beer because of wheat. Wine is acting weird in my stomach. I’m staying away as much as possible from all wheat/grass after reading the book called Wheat Belly. The second is that its a pastime that I don’t want to have when a bit older. Third, I’m trying to be more healthy and active. Being more healthy means different things to different people but for me, I think that means being receptive to cancer and what it entails. It also fucks with my sleep pattern. In the article in the Well New York Times, it mentions that alcohol is/could be a cause of cancer.

The risk for heavy drinkers — defined as eight or more drinks a week for women and 15 or more a week for men, including binge drinkers — are multiples higher. Heavy drinkers face roughly five times the risk of mouth and throat cancers and squamous cell esophageal cancers than nondrinkers, nearly three times the risk of cancers of the voice box or larynx, double the risk of liver cancer, as well as increased risks for female breast cancer and colorectal cancer.

From this notation I drink at least one drink a night which is by definition a heavy drinker. I dont differentiate between women and men. Why is a 150lb woman different then a 200lb men? I dont really believe there is. Smoking is bad for you no matter what.

One way alcohol may lead to cancer is because the body metabolizes it into acetaldehyde, which causes changes and mutations in DNA, Dr. Gapstur said. The formation of acetaldehyde starts when alcohol comes in contact with bacteria in the mouth, which may explain the link between alcohol and cancers of the throat, voice box and esophagus, she suggested.

Same logic then the Wheat Belly argument which is that pesticide or chemicals gets intertwined in food and this affect the integrity of the food itself. This cause havoc when it’s digested. I believe that any kind of chemicals that is used to prevent or alter food is not for humans and to the same extent animals.

On the flip side, are all alcohol created equally? What’s the difference between tequila made from a small farmers that dont have money to even think about chemicals or vodka made from potatoes?

The use of force may control people physically, but it won’t change their hearts and minds. You can only do that on the basis of trust and friendship.

FBI Increases Its Anti-Encryption Rhetoric

The race to end encryption from the FBI is fascinating to me. Why would any agencies want to do this is beyond me? The simple fact is that they also rely on it and would be detrimental for them if they didnt have encryption.

La mécanique de l’Histoire


The installation was strategically placed over the Panthéon’s Foucault Pendulum, which was devised by French physicist Léon Foucault and offers an easy-to-understand demonstration of Earth’s rotation. Commonly replicated at science museums around the world, the Panthéon’s pendulum has been the most well-known since its inception in 1851. According to co-producers Théâtre de la Ville, Bourgeois’s work is a meditation on Earth’s gravity.
