Planet of the Chimps… Uh oh!

Okay, I know that chimps have always had animal smarts. I mean c’mon I’ve seen the movies on how they’re steeling our women and taking over the world (not necessarily in that order). This however is a little scary. While coasting the sites for interesting stuff, I found this little article at In Japan, Ayumu the chimp is making some of the smartest human look like idiots… well, at least when it comes to simple but challenging memory games.

According to psychologist Nicholas Humphrey however, this chimps talents might not have anything to do with memory but a condition that Ayumu might have knows as synthesthesia which allows the brain to attach sensory experiences to letters or numbers. This might be allowing him to see numbers as colors. Whatever the case, the video is amazing. Check it out:

Bullied News Anchor Gets Her Voice Heard

October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month and being bullied for being a big boy throughout my adolescent life I feel strongly that it is very important to point out the importance of taking a stand and letting punks know their place. That being said, while coasting Facebook, I found this video courtesy of News anchor Jennifer Livingston of CBS WKBT News 8 in La Crosse, Wisconsin happens to be big and beautiful. After a particularly insulting email from a viewer, she decided to take a stand on national television, take a look:

Trayvon Martin: Injustice at its finest.

Today marks one month since Trayvon Martin was murdered by George Zimmerman and still this man is out there free to kill again. What does it take for a real criminal to get arrested these days? What the hell is going on?!? Oh… wait… I know…  you know… we all know. Once again people of color have been betrayed by law enforcement officials attempting to sweep a crime under the carpet to avoid exposure to the truth.

What is that truth you might ask? Well, it’s like I’ve said before; this is still a nation full of bigots and racists. No matter how you might want to believe it’s getting better, it isn’t. We might not see anything happening in our daily lives or even on the news and forget these problems exist. Unfortunately, it takes tragedies like the murdering of Trayvon Martin to remind us that all the Band-Aids in the world won’t fix the problem.

This problem is fundamentally attached to the individual souls of our nation. The thought process needs to be changed in those that lived that lie all of their lives and it needs to stop being taught to our children. I know, these are just words but it’s the truth.

This is just my sad little opinion.

Greek Officials: Pedophilia Is A Disability… WTF!!!

Whenever I’m in a situation where I’m forced to think of the word “pedophilia” and what it means, like many people I undoubtedly begin to feel… well… physically ill. I imagine a deranged, solitary adult hovering behind the back fence of a little league game or sitting on a bench near a playground with a bag of candy just waiting for an unsuspecting victim to wander by.

Now, lets take the word “disability”. When I hear this word, I think of a person with a physical or mental condition that cannot be remedied or controlled or otherwise dealt with without some kind of eternal intervention be it medication or some form of therapy. To me, it’s someone whose circumstances are beyond his or her control in the most sincere way.

When you hear that someone is “on disability”, you imagine that this person can’t provide for themselves like most people can. A person who has undergone some form of debilitating injury or illness or birth defect that prevents them from living a life of independence known to those of us that don’t have these issues.

How many times have you EVER heard both the word “pedophile” and “disability” in the same sentence? I don’t know about you but I don’t think I ever have… until now.

According to this article in Yahoo news (link), The Ministry of Labour and Social Security of Greece has recently expanded the list of compensable disabilities to include pedophilia. Adding this (and some other items including sadomasochism and pyromania) to their list as a gauge for allocating financial assistance… wait… what? You mean to tell me that a pedophile in Greece may be able to receive disability benefits? The straight answer… yes.

Under this new list, pedophiles will be eligible to receive disability benefits up to 35%. As a comparison, diabetics who have to take insulin shots four or five times a day only get 10%… As I live and breath every time I come across something that I think is incredibly asinine and think to myself, “there is no way in HELL that anybody can do something as stupid as this”, someone or something always manages to take it to a whole new level.

This world is going to shit and it’s idiots like the people in Greece responsible for this decision that are making sure that we take the bee line straight to crap central! What kind of bass ackwords world is this becoming where governments are willing to give taxpayer money to people who willingly sexually abuse children? So does this mean that the victims who suffer debilitating trauma from this form of abuse will get something as well? I don’t know the answer to that question but from the looks of it, they will certainly be receiving way less than they deserve.

In my sad little opinion, screw whatever rights these sickos THINK they have. These people need to have their genitalia removed and placed on display as a warning to others… Vlad the Impaler style!

We’re getting closer to finding life out there… TOLD YA!

While coasting one of the many social networks I’m a part of, I came across this story that a very old friend of mine posted that I thought was worth mentioning.

This story from the Huffington Post explains how the Kepler rocket that NASA launched back in 2009 in search of extraterrestrial planets orbiting other suns actually found a planet that, for all intents and purposes may sustain life (as we know it… remember this article way back when: Is there life on other planets? Sure… Why not?).

Kepler-22b is what they are calling it for the time being and apparently, it has very earth like characteristics. They report that the temperature is a mild 72 degrees Fahrenheit and its about twice the size of Earth. Also, it has a steady orbit around it’s sun that takes 290 days to complete making it only 75 days shorter than ours.

I told you back in 2009 what my opinion was. HA! How you like me NOW!?!
