This guy has got to be one of the best hardware hackers I've seen. He makes portables out of PS2's, NES, SNES, PS1, ATARI 2600, etc etc. Way cool stuff, look at the pictures.

This is way cool technology. Would be interesting to compile stats and see how it affects realestate property values. :)

Gunfire detection system.
"Other cities have seen more direct results. For instance, in Charleston, police responded to a ShotSpotter alarm that went off two days after the network was installed and found two men firing shots from a stolen pistol. It took the officers just three minutes to arrive at the location of the incident, according to police reports. The pistol had been stolen just 15 minutes earlier"

Animals are our friends. Well, at least dolphins.
"A pod of dolphins circled protectively round a group of New Zealand swimmers to fend off an attack by a great white shark" ... "They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing tight circles around us".

Will the horror in Israel ever end!

The Lord has an interesting way to mass produce chicken mc'nuggets

Ok, this has got to be one of the most horrific and tragic stories I have ever come across so I saved it for last. I'm not even going to mention the title, its just that bad. The story has something to do with the murder of an infant and I'd advise you not to click unless your emotionally prepared.

Seems like we are learning a lot about ourselves these days....

"Everything that evolves is a modified version of something else that already evolved," said Greene. "If you can trace the evolutionary history of the structures involved in a certain kind of thinking then perhaps you can make the case that the thinking in question is shaped by the creature's evolutionary history."

This kind of thinking is what led Dr. Andreas Bartels, now at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tubingen, Germany, to propose (on the basis of fMRI work) that romantic love evolved from maternal love.

Similarly, Dr. Val Curtis of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine published work earlier this year showing that our sense of disgust has evolved to protect us from disease. That sense of hygiene, said Greene, might be the basis for so-called higher senses, such as moral feelings.

Greene is currently working on this idea. "For example," he said, "we might describe the behavior of someone who takes bribes as disgusting. I think that's more than a simple, learned metaphor."
