From BoingBoing. This Hindi man has a Christmas tree painted on his head and the words "Happy Christmas" in his native language. Ground-breaking Christmas news, I know. The wonders of viral internet. But...Merry Christmas all the same!
This is an amusing article falling into our "only in California" category if we ever decide to make one. Festivus refers to the completely make-believe secular holiday created by the TV show SEINFIELD. However, as I understand it, a niche of people actually do treat Festivus seriously, kind of like how some adherents of STAR WARS now declare themselves followers of "Jedi-ism", even to the point of claiming discrimination in public when they wear hoods.
So, if you feel like setting up your aluminum pole and getting ready your list of grievances. Have no fear, you have plenty of company. "Festivus for the rest of us!"
It should come as no surprise that there are small groups of scientists here and there dedicated to solving the question of human longevity. This article in essence argues that aging isn't a constant, and that every species reaches an "immortality plateau" after the initial growth phase after birth.
The article argues that this "immortality plateau" is basically a phase of life where you physically age very little, and the trick for longevity is to get into this phase early and stay in it as long as you can. So, what's a human to do. Simple, says the article:
1) Adopt a Hunter-Gatherer lifestyle after the age of 35 and 40...i.e. live a physically active life (go play with your Kinect!) and eat a Paleolithic diet. In essence don't eat anything derived from grain or grass, only eat meats, seafood, nuts, fruits and vegetables.

With Cyber Monday just around the corner, millions of online shoppers will be scouring the internet for good deals. As always, do research on your suppliers before buying, as the story below will clearly illustrate.
This NY Times article falls into our "Only on the Internet" category, telling a fascinating account of a man who runs an internet business based on enraging customers. The idea here is to run an online merchandise business mostly above board, but then selectively choose a few customers to mess with.
Then, as those customers fight you, they leave enraged, negative reviews all over the internet, thus gaining the business a much higher search rank on Google...which in turn, drives more traffic to the unscrupulous website. He never makes direct threats, but intimidates customers who demand a refund, by emailing pictures of ...read more
Today is Black Friday!!! Unlike many others, I actually find this day very fun. My wife and I make a Bonnie and Clyde team and we clean out the town. No, not really, but we do manage to catch some really good deals.
Lots of people condemn this day as crass commercialism...and yeah it is...but if you can get into your own flow there's quite a lot of opportunities on Black Friday that don't involve waiting in line for an obscene number of hours. We save hundreds of dollars every year and are able to close out our holiday gift shopping on this day.
I've included a video of a stampede at Target down below, lol.
This year's haul:
Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 (3 pc's) - $0 (after store rebate)
