Scientists Find Soft Tissue in T-Rex Bone

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A 70-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex fossil dug out of a hunk of sandstone has yielded soft tissue, including blood vessels and perhaps even whole cells, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.

God! I hate my fucking life..!

Saturday, March 19, 2005 

Morning...

Is it just me or does everyone feel like crying when they watch the news? Especially w/ this whole "middle east" thing going on for so long...

Yesterday morning they had this segment about two people whom had lost there lives (in Iraq) and the last letters they had sent to there loved ones.

They read the letters off while showing pictures of them and stuff. It was so fucking depressing! All these lives lost and for what? Freedom?

I think we all know why Bush is pushing this so hard and it has nothing to do w/ our/there freedom...

13 things that do not make sense

Pretty interesting article from NewScientist.com - 13 things that do not make sense


this one is pretty neat...

#8 The Pioneer anomaly

THIS is a tale of two spacecraft. Pioneer 10 was launched in 1972; Pioneer 11 a year later. By now both craft should be drifting off into deep space with no one watching. However, their trajectories have proved far too fascinating to ignore.

That's because something has been pulling - or pushing - on them, causing them to speed up. The resulting acceleration is tiny, less than a nanometre per second per second. That's equivalent to just one ten-billionth of the gravity at Earth's surface, but it is enough to have shifted Pioneer 10 some 400,000 kilometres off track. NASA lost touch with Pioneer 11 in 1995, but up to that point it was experiencing exactly the same deviation as its sister probe. So what is causing it?

Nobody knows. Some possible explanations have already been ruled out, including software errors, the solar wind or a fuel leak. If the cause is some gravitational effect, it is not one we know anything about. In fact, physicists are so completely at a loss that some have resorted to linking this mystery with other inexplicable phenomena.

Bruce Bassett of the University of Portsmouth, UK, has suggested that the Pioneer conundrum might have something to do with variations in alpha, the fine structure constant (see "Not so constant constants", page 37). Others have talked about it as arising from dark matter - but since we don't know what dark matter is, that doesn't help much either. "This is all so maddeningly intriguing," says Michael Martin Nieto of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. "We only have proposals, none of which has been demonstrated."

Nieto has called for a new analysis of the early trajectory data from the craft, which he says might yield fresh clues. But to get to the bottom of the problem what scientists really need is a mission designed specifically to test unusual gravitational effects in the outer reaches of the solar system. Such a probe would cost between $300 million and $500 million and could piggyback on a future mission to the outer reaches of the solar system (www.arxiv.org/gr-qc/0411077).

"An explanation will be found eventually," Nieto says. "Of course I hope it is due to new physics - how stupendous that would be. But once a physicist starts working on the basis of hope he is heading for a fall." Disappointing as it may seem, Nieto thinks the explanation for the Pioneer anomaly will eventually be found in some mundane effect, such as an unnoticed source of heat on board the craft.

A Thought: spoken

I should know better then to feel this way? To have let this happen is to speak a word that is unspoken, forbidden, and punishable by all in morality. This wasn't planned, nor was it something I was looking for. It seems in a flash all that was once meaningful can become meaningless. Even subjected, fleeting, redundant and feathered...

It's a dream, within a dream, that never could happen... But it did!

Horoscope:
Your thoughts are running around in circles now as you are being drawn toward something or someone that may present a potential danger to you. Don't fall into the "must have" vs. "can't have" dilemma, for once you do, there may not be an easy way out. Instead, involve yourself in a productive activity to take your mind off your obsessions.

To late!

Why rejection really hurts

I found this to be pretty interesting:


The hurt we feel when a lover dumps us is a primitive response that has the same roots as physical pain, says a social psychologist.

Australian researcher Dr Geoff MacDonald of the University of Queensland in Brisbane reports on the links between social and physical pain in the March issue of the Psychological Bulletin.

MacDonald was struck by the observation that when people are rejected they often have highly reactive responses that are not necessarily well thought out.

"It's like when we get a cut or something," he says.

GNOME Vs GNOME

Last time I checked it was ok for people to have an opinion, regardless if one might agree with it or not.

After reading a bit of the gnome mailing list and reading the Gnome Devs blogs, I gotta say: You guys aren't making yr selves look any better...

Honestly Dom Lachowicz, what makes Eugenia a troll? The fact that she has an opinion or that you don't agree with it? And who the hell was asking for a favor? When exactly we're feature requests put into this light?

I have to say though, I don't agree nor do i disagree with everything she said. But I do think there is a problem w/ the way gnome deals w/ it's user base. Which is, you "GNOME" ignore them :)

Anywho, I wish you all the best of luck!

Pavement / GOLD SOUNDZ

Go back to those gold soundz
And keep my advent to your self
Because it’s nothing I don’t like
Is it a crisis or a boring change?
When it’s central, so essential,
It has a nice ring when you laugh
At the low life opinions
And they’re coming to the chorus now...
I keep your address to myself ’cause we need secrets
We need secrets crets crets crets crets crets back right now

Because I never wanna make you feel
That you’re social
Never ignorant soul
Believe in what you wanna do
And do you think that is a major flaw
When they rise up in the falling rain
And if you stay around with your knuckles ground down
The trial’s over, weapon’s found
Keep my address to myself because it’s secret
Cuz it’s secret cret cret cret [etc.]... back right now

So drunk in the august sun
And you’re the kind of girl I like
Because you’re empty and I’m empty
And you can never quarantine the past
Did you remember in december
That I won’’t eat you when I’m gone
And if I go there, I won’t stay there
Because I’m sitting here too long
I’ve been sitting here too long
And I’ve been wasted
Advocating that word for the last word
Last words come up all you’ve got to waste

A great song from an awesome band...

Far too Long...

It's been far to long now since I last played in a band or really written anything w/ a small group of friends. I really have this urge to start doing so again.

I was actually hoping to maybe start playing and writing again w/ Brian and Kevin, but as of this moment I'm really not sure if that's going to happen. The topic has come up recently, but it is one thing to talk about it and it's another thing entirely, to actually do it.

I am seriously thinking about trying to get them both together and really discuss it. I honestly feel that if us three got back together as friends and as song writers, we could come up w/ some pretty amazing stuff. I think we could go far beyond what we wrote and played in the past and bring to it a much greater level of stability...

All it would take is effort! Effort and the willingness to try... Well, an also allot of practice on my part :) I think I am probably a little rusty after all this time on the sidelines just waiting for something to happen...

Anyway, tomorrow I'm gonna give Kev' a call and see what he thinks. Hopefully I don't get his damn voice mail again :

/me is an Idiot?

Don't you love it when yr in NetBSD & you mistakenly run "make update" instead of "make replace" on a vital system port..?

Well if you have never used nbsd before: make update, tells the port system to uninstall and then reinstall all the ports that depend on the current port you are upgrading. In my case it was the jpeg lib. :)

Hey? Atleast everything should be reinstalled by the time I get up in the morning :
