Are you a terrorist? Or just stressed out? A computer can tell from your face! I Hope the software what I read about is available for home use - it could be quite handy if you're having an existential crisis and you don't know who you are. Or amnesiacs - they should use it on them! When I say amnesiacs, I obviously mean people who have no memory of who they are, "I've got some bad news for you Mr. X - we've got your test results back and you're a pope." I don't really think it would work on amnesiacs - I think if they have no idea that they're a pope then they computer won't be able to tell from their facial expresion that they're the pope. So somenoe could be hypnotised to not know that they're a terrorist the cabin crew offer start trying to sell them shit. So, it wouldn't work it's a waste of time. But perhaps the computer could tell if people were hypnotised, and not let them on? That wouldn't be very fair on someone who had been hypnotised to deal with a fear of flying though. Perhaps they could be hypnotised at the airport under security agency scrutiny - but they could have been previously hypnotised to realise they were terrorists once the cabin crew started selling them shit whenever they were under a state of hypnosis to address a fear of flying. The fear of flying would probably even be a fake one induced by hypnosis for these nefarious purposes. So forget it, University of Texas. You're wasting your time. The whole thing's ruddy ridiculous.
A spider has been discovered that makes webs that are twenty-five metres across. And a picture caption says 'the spider's web dwarfs scientists'. Well, you'd expect that, wouldn't you? I mean, these are human scientists we're talking about. It's not been discovered by whale scientists. The spider is, of course, just doing it to show off, but I think that's fair enough, after all, it's quite impressive. Some of you show-offs (I'm addressing humanity here, not It Is What It Is readers) might want to think about that - if you want to show off, have something that warrants you showing off about it. Something that's twenty-five metres across and is still a spider's web, that's good. Something that's a mile long and isn't really a pizza, not so good.
I read that the Mexican drug lord El Grande had been captured. I had two thoughts on the matter. Firstly, what a crap name. It's like if he'd called himself Mr. Big. Or a boxer calling himself Mister Muscles. Secondly, I thought, drug lord? Whatever happened to drug baron? Are they different things? I would have thought the drug baron was the top dog, and they seem to be saying that this feller was top dog. It is that most drug barons are drug barons, but the top three or something are drug lords, that a drug lord is a sort of superbaron? The article didn't say. I expect. I didn't read it, but I'm pretty confident.
that's all from me for now
see you around
