Million hits on transients.info, Comet Lovejoy, self-healing polymer, 10 things we didn't know, Zombie run

transients.info just reached a total of a million pageviews overnight. And no, you don't get a prize for being the millionth viewer =)...

Here are few interesting links for today...

A new comet named Lovejoy has been discovered. Universe Today has an article with with good pictures to go along with it here,

PHYS.ORG has an interesting story about a self-healing polymer which repairs it self. The technology could be used to improve the lifetime of plastic parts in many products.

The BBC in the UK has another ten things we didn't know last week article out. Did you know there is a jail for bears that wander into town in Churchill, Manitoba? (I don't even know where Manitoba is...)

Well how come a polymer is more intelligent than some of us? Who's programming the polymer? Do we always need the sense of security of a go-between or will we one day decide to own our power :)))? Oh, I ought to mention that I haven't read the article yet....I'm just assuming my comment is valid given the title - you know, polymer or the human brain, you'd think it was a no-brainer - indeed!

Go Laron Go!!! :)

There is so much Zombie infusion into our lives these days. Its in commercials on TV and in movies and shows as a common occurrence. I feel like their is a deep psychological reason for its over abundance of use in the language as of late. Perhaps its a message that too many of us are zombies in real life? I can see why they would make zombies be the cause of that run as when SHTF here in North America people are going to start resembling zombies in many ways. All of the nightmares of zombies will come true. People aimlessly milling around looking for anything. All of the formerly medicated and drugged out millions slobbering and not able to cope with a normal day without drugs now forced into a life and death struggle when all they can crave for is "brains" to get them by. Those prepared will be scared and overwhelmed by the masses of zombies wandering around. That's why the cities are a terrifying place here.
So are these warnings from our sub-consciousness? The Universe preparing us for our next stages? Get ready.

Congrats on the million hits, Laron. Imagine if every one of that million joined in the weekly healing sessions...whew!!

Rachelle said...

Of course, there are a few of us that probably make up a pretty large percentage of those hits:)

Laron said...

Laron said...
