Boredom (2012): Documentary examining boredom has some very interesting things to say. Boredom we learn is a huge contributor to stress. I liked that they exposed the public school for being the main place where boredom is king. Honestly my own feelings on this is that it's by design by the powers that be to make people more passive, more like drones who will accept the status quo (be it government, big business, perhaps even the Church - those in power) by draining all the energy and life out of youth, and making people want to search for happiness in false ways such as shopping, etc. I think it's a place that encourages people to become factory drone workers or something similar, it doesn't encourage IMO independent thinking and questioning the system like is more likely to happen at a college level.  

This documentary, directed by Albert Nerenberg (who also directed Stupidity and Laughology), was fairly well done and has a great sense of deadpan humor underlying it all. Boredom we also learn contributes for many people towards future risk taking. I thought one woman made a great point saying that even with all today's technology and social media distractions, people are more bored than ever. None of it will ever be as interesting as the real world all around us. There will always be interesting people and things going on in the world but sadly most of us are too distracted by bright lights and flashing screens to even notice. I'd give this hour long documentary **** out of ***** stars.

I wonder if there's an original way of presenting this scenerio. maybe have attractive couples staying in a cabana by a fancy pool or in cardboard box by a sewage treatment center. or on the moon

The thing I appreciated the most about him over the years is how great an interviewer he had become.

And here's another story about a dude controlling a robotic hand with his mind and using it to do something very important.   And that is to DRINK BEER.

Quote
You need to see Erik G. Sorto's smile when he drinks this beer. You've never seen a smile like it before. It's the smile of a man who hasn't brought a bottle to his lips with his own hands in 12 years — because that's when he became paralyzed from a gunshot wound.

Now, thanks to neuroscientist Richard Andersen from the California Institute of Technology, Sorto can use his brain to operate a robotic arm. He can pick up a beer, bring it to his mouth and take a sip from a straw. It's an action most people take for granted every weekend. But it means much more to the 32-year-old.

Andersen's team ventured into the unusual science of neuroprosthetics so Sorto could drink that beer.

In the past, electrodes have been planted in the motor cortex, which reads each individual movement: lift arm, reach arm, lower arm, close hand, raise arm, retract arm, tip hand and so on. According to Science, Andersen and his team discovered they could plant the same electrodes in the posterior parietal cortex, the part of the brain that controls intent instead of motor function. The brain can command, simply, "Drink that beer" — instead of the rigorous step-by-step process listed above.


Here's the video of the guy having a beer;

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
