Intellectual Article Hour

Thought I'd give you all some things to stimulate the ol' cortex. Of course, while you do it, I'll be numbing my own with NWN, but, hey, in the immortal words of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs: 'I don't practice what I preach, because I'm not the kind of person I'm preaching to.'

Connie Chung Slips Further -- Wasn't there a time when Connie Chung was a respected journalist, or something like that? In a recent interview with Martina Navratilova, however, she is not only arrogant and biased, but downright antagonistic...no wonder Dan Rather kicked her ass off his show. (thanks to mnemosyne138 for the link)

Cybernetic Vision is close to working -- Yes, they turned it on, and the guy borrowed the keys to a Mustang and drove around the parking lot...I'd call that definite success. Sure, there's still plenty of work before it's day-to-day feasible, but they are nearly there. The other reason I post this is as a slap to the FDA. This researcher has skirted FDA testing regulations by having the couple of people he's worked on go to fucking Lisbon for the surgery. Good for him. Fuck the government, if someone VOLUNTEERS to have this stuff done, it should be done. And, because he has worked around these puritanical laws (whoa, Frank, come full circle to the Chung article, why doncha?), he has made leaps and discoveries that normally would have taken another 20 years. This is one of the richest and most technological countries in the world, we should be using that position, not hindering it. OK, that was sort of off on a tangent...this still kicks ass. Hell, get it working, take my eyes out, and jack me up,...the possibilities are HUGE. (thanks to kespernorth for the link)
