Man Blinded By Sex

Despite centuries of clergy warnings regarding blindness science says 90% of men admit to whipping skippy and the other 10% evade an answer.

A 29-year-old British man rushed to an ER with “an obstruction in the central vision of his left eye...”  The cause remained a mystery 'till the man admitted to having “vigorous sexual intercourse” the night before his medical issue appeared.

The cause was clear.  The guy did a Valsalva maneuver tensing his abdominal muscles and holding his breath while bumping uglies.  The stunt busted a blood vessel in his eye and left him with postcoital valsalva retinopathy.

Seems the Valsalva maneuver wipes out memory too...which is prolly why the guy was doing it in the first place.

Housefly E-Coli Warning

Penn State says the common housefly carries salmonella, e-coli and the often fatal, sepsis.

Flies in urban areas are far more dangerous than creatures in rural areas.

The insects get the microbes from feces and rotting animals upon which they lay eggs (maggots) that hatch and use the mouldering filth as a food source.

Dr Stephan Schuster,  research director at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, found their legs carry most of the narly nasty.  Even a micro-second landing on food leaves behind large loads of pathogen.

Hey Sheldon, still wanna eat outside?

2000 Serial Killers At Large

Researcher Thomas Hargrove says 2,000 serial killers are at large in US.

Hargrove's two-thousand estimate is based on FBI homicide data.  The FBI currently has 1,400 unsolved murders and each is DNA linked to other killings.

Hargrove developed his own data crunching based on method, place, time, and victim gender and unusual rates of unsolved murders.

Consider the cases in Lake County, Indiana in 2010. Between 1980 and 2008, fifteen women were strangled and dumped in vacant houses.

Hargrove asked the cops whether they suspected a serial killer. The cops ignored him until Darren Vann was arrested.  'Over several days, he [Vann] takes police to abandoned buildings where they recover the bodies of six women, all of them strangled, just like the pattern we were seeing in the algorithm,' Hargrove noted.

China 'Cures' Homosexuals

In the 90s US gays jumped out of closets and into Gay Pride parades. 

But Islam's billions say homosexuality is a perversion before Allah and requires a death penalty.  And the notion of same-sex-bumping-nasties is still frowned upon by millions in other religions.

In 2001, the Chinese Society of Psychiatry removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders but the Chinese medical establishment ignores the rule.

China's hospitals still offer so-called “conversion therapy,” which includes 'fixes' such as coercive threats, abduction, confinement, forced medication, financial ruin, and the use of electroshock treatment (like a lobotomy).

So if US gays think resistance to same-sex bathrooms is a big problem they might remember China and Islam.  Things could get a LOT worse.

Kids Bad For Earth

The left hates cars, common sense, capitalism and kids.  

NBC News unleashed climate-change-goon and bioethicist Travis Rieder on public airwaves this week with his missive concluding, “Science proves kids are bad for Earth...”

Reider's logic?  “If I release a murderer from prison, knowing full well that he intends to kill innocent people, then I bear some responsibility for those deaths...when it comes to having children, once my daughter is an autonomous agent, she will be responsible for her emissions. But that doesn’t negate my responsibility.”

His daughter?  Aren't kids bad for the Earth?  Oh, must only be OTHER people's kids, right Travis?

Man Originated In Morocco?

The accepted 'origin of man' theory says the first Homo Sapiens sauntered out of caves near the southern-tip of sub-Saharan Africa in what science characterizes as a "Garden of Eden," about 200,000 years ago.

But a stunning discovery this year has turned anthropology on it's head, literally.

Jean-Jacques Hublin and his team from the Max Planck Institute found bones belonging to people who lived roughly 300,000-350,000 years ago - in Morocco.

"There is no Garden of Eden in Africa, or if there is, it is all of Africa," Hublin said.   And if true, better explains why humans quickly spread to the Middle East, Europe and Asia.  And left behind stone-age people that still populate Africa today.

School Segregates Based On Grades

Hudson High School in Texas want failing students to get off their asses.

The segregation theory is to intended remind those not "on-track" to improve before it's too late.

On-track students get an ID and wristband, free admission to sporting events, and are allowed to eat lunch outside the cafeteria.

The off-track students (less than 2.0 GPA, four or more excused/unexcused absences, and one or more Fs) are denied the above privileges and are made to stand, sit on the floor or run to fill the few tables in the cafeteria.

The off-track students say the 'treatment' won't push them to improve.  That attitude does explain why such students are off-track, right?   

Hot Dog Robber Shoots Penis

Hapless armed bandit, 19-year-old Terrion Pouncy, used a handgun to rob a Chicago hot dog stand while “wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt” and a “dark scarf concealing his face.”  

Pouncy ran stuffing cash in one pocket and  “shifting the gun in his waistband… he apparently pulled the trigger, firing a bullet that struck him in the penis.”

Pouncy didn't get far before calling the cops himself to get medical help.   The cops pieced together the coincidence and arrested Pouncy after comparing his “blood-stained boxers” to the underwear seen on surveillance video.

One cannot emphasize enough the importance of proper gun safety training.

30,000 IQ In 30 Years

A robot is a machine.  An android is robot with a human appearance.  Central to both are microchips, memory, circuits and artificial intelligence. 

Computing genius John von Neumann foresaw the inevitable in the 1950s. "The accelerating progress of technology...give the appearance of approaching some essential singularity in the...race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue."

Most assume the 'singularity' is the day an artificial intelligence matches and exceeds the highest IQ ever recorded for a human being - about 200.

How about a 30,000 IQ in 30 years? An intelligence so god-like that such a being will see humans as we see cockroaches?

Such machines will no doubt squash humans in the same way and for the same reasons.
