Hackers who commandeer your computer are bad enough. Now scientists worry that someday, they'll try to take over your brain.
• Scientists can use thoughts to operate computers, wheelchairs and Twitter
• As tech develops, risk of "brain hacking" become more real, scientists say
Ever since voice recognition technology came out I've been saying that it would never take off. Why convert an analog voice signal to digital when you have digital brain waves? All you have to do is figure out how to translate those digital brain signals. Well it only makes sense that once you understand how to read those digital signals its only a matter of time before someone figures out how to 1) read them from a distance and 2) write and over ride them. So here we are, moments away from the day when someone can point a receiver at you and read your mind, then point a transmitter at you and change it. Wait, no, that will never happen. That's ridiculous.

Energy drinks were a recent topic of discussion on Beatdown Radio. I'd like to throw out some thoughts. There are all kinds of energy supplements (pills, drinks, etc.) and people take them for different reasons, especially energy and weight loss.

For our anniversary we left the kids with their Babcia and Dziadek and went to see Exit The King at the Barrymore Theatre.
The review by David Spencer is the best I've found, but I can't find anywhere that elaborates on the various archetypes and metaphors to the degree in which I was looking.
If you've seen the show, tell me what you thought.
Ultimately Aviva and I had a great time.
After the show I was looking around the web to see if anyone had written about the metaphors and archetypes used, but all I was able to find were general references to the fact that they existed in the show and nothing about the specifics.
Via NYTimes.com: More than ever, America’s atheists are linking up and speaking out
They liken their strategy to that of the gay-rights movement, which lifted off when closeted members of a scorned minority decided to go public.

A branch of behavioral research situated at the intersection of psychology and economics, decision science focuses on the mental processes that shape our choices, behaviors and attitudes.
