Sleep, Sex, Fruit Flies, And Mice

::Ahem::
I Stumbled Upon a Study on How Lack Of Sleep Can Affect my Cognitive Abilities, Health and Memory.
It went on to Proclaim That:
“…University of Washington researchers studied the role of sleep in forming long-term memories by using a Special Breed of Fruit Flies that could be Induced to Sleep On Demand.
First, the Male Flies studied in this paper were “trained” by being exposed to other Genetically Engineered Males who released Female Pheromones.
After several courtships and rejections during this training period, some of these Flies were then forced to sleep for four hours.
These Sleepers made no further attempts to court the Engineered Males when exposed to them again — suggesting that sleep had helped form a long-term memory of the earlier deception.
But Flies who didn’t sleep were tricked once more by the same Genetically Engineered Males. The researchers in this study concluded that training alone was not enough to trigger memory consolidation — sleep was a necessary component.”
[So Evidently if I get Enough Sleep, I *may* one day be as Smart as a Fruit Fly.]
And…”Another Preliminary Study from the Washington University School of Medicine found that in Mice, Poor Sleep may be related to Brain Plaques associated with Alzheimer’s.”
So, folks, be sure that your Fruit Flies and Mice get Plenty of Sleep!
Me?
I’ll be awake until 4 or 5AM watching the Science Channel.

Portrait Of An Idiot

Portrait Of An Idiot (Don’t Try This At Home, Kids!)

::Ahem::
I Am So Talented,
I Managed To Give Myself A Black Eye.
See I had This Kind of Pimply-Like Thing Under My Eye…
And it was Really Annoying Me the Other Night….
So I figured I’d Perform Sugery..
Not Successfully.
There’s These Capillaries there you see…
So…
Yes.
I am An Idiot.
But Makeup and Reading Glasses help.
It Also Helps To Be Bi-Polish.

Easter, Passover, Hollywood, And Irony On The USS Enterprise

::Ahem::
Easter, Passover, Hollywood, and Irony on the USS Enterprise.
Not Necessarily In That Order…
It Goes Kinda Like This:
At some point prior to “The Cage” (Later known as “The Menagerie“–Star Trek TOS), Christopher Robin Pike is promoted to Fleet Captain.
He is severely injured while rescuing several Cadets from a Baffle Plate Rupture on board a J-class Training Vessel, the Delta Ray Radiation leaving him Paralyzed, Mute, Badly Scarred, and Dependent on a Brainwave-Operated Wheelchair.
His only means of communicating is through a Light on the Chair:
One Flash meaning “Yes” and Two Flashes indicating “No”.
But…Wait!
What?
They can Travel at Warp Speed Through Space and Time, yet all they can manage for Captain Pike is a Glorified Hoveround!?!
No Wonder the Son of God quit the Series!
And it was A Good Thing, too!
If Jeffrey Hunter hadn’t quit Star Trek, the character of the SpaceAge-Wheelchair Bound Captain Pike as we know him, and indeed the now famous character of
Captain James Tiberius Kirk played by William Shatner may never have existed.
(Evidently Mr. Hunter was Good Enough to Die for Our Sins but not quite up to the Task of Seducing Green Women.)
The Collective Star Trek Fan Base thanks him for that.
In reality Hunter accepted the lead role of Captain Christopher Pike in “The Cage”, the first pilot episode of Star Trek, but declined to film a second Star Trek pilot requested by NBC in 1965, and decided to concentrate on motion pictures such as Brainstorm.
Ironically, Hunter died of a Cerebral Hemorrhage in 1969.
Three Days Later,
He Arose from the Dead,
Saw a Cute Little Bunny, and
Decided to Hide Brightly Colored Hard Boiled Eggs and Dispense Jelly Beans to the Masses.
Happy Easter!

Sir Isaac Newton founded Classical Mechanics on the View that Space is Distinct from Body and that Time passes Uniformly without Regard to Whether Anything Happens in the World.
For this reason he spoke of Absolute Space and Absolute Time, so as to Distinguish these Entities from the Various Ways By Which We Measure Them
(which he called Relative Spaces and Relative Times).
Albert Einstein concluded in his later years that the Past, Present, and Future all Exist Simultaneously.
In 1952, in his book Relativity, in discussing Minkowski’s Space World Interpretation of his Theory of Relativity, Einstein writes:
“Since there exists in this four dimensional structure [space-time] no longer any sections which represent “now” objectively, the concepts of happening and becoming
are indeed not completely suspended, but yet complicated.
It appears therefore more natural to think of physical reality as a four dimensional existence, instead of, as hitherto, the evolution of a three dimensional existence.”
Most everyone knows that Einstein proved that time is relative, not absolute as Newton claimed.
Which tells me that *Time*, for me, is as Einstein concluded:
There is no True Division between Past and Future, there is rather a Single Existence.
Today Is March First.
We are due for Another Bi-Polish Cryogenic Vortex Nor’Easter Today.
Therefore, Winter Is Forever.

The Bi-Polish Vortex Continues On Its Merry Way Through The Tri-State Region.
At the Moment we are Smack Dab in the Middle of a Seasonal Weather System that Meteorologists like to call “The Cryosphere”,
Meaning that it is Colder Than A Witch’s Tit and Prone to Spontaneously Producing Glaciers, Ice shelves, Icebergs, and Douchebags.

ANOTHER SEVEN INCHES of SNON on the Ground and I’m Skipping the Gym today because The Roads are a Sheet of Ice.
Face It Folks, Another Ice Age Is Upon Us!
(At least *My Body* evidently thinks so.)
Our Bodies believe that Any Day Now, we’ll have Another Ice Age and there won’t be Any More Food, so they Need to Store up Lots of Fat.
So while our Brains are in the 21st Century, forcing us to eat Salads,
Our Bodies are Back in Prehistoric Times, thinking:
“I made Six Ounces of Fat today! Bring on the Glaciers!”
If only we could explain to our Bodies that Times have Changed & they no longer need to make so much Fat.
Of course, I refuse to get on a Scale unless Forced to Do So at Gunpoint.
Why, you may ask?
Or not.
But I’ll tell you anyway.
I’m Allergic to Scales.
The Type that Guess your Weight.
They make me Break Out in Low Self-Esteem.
The last time I got on a Digital Scale was when they did the Mandatory “Wellness” Thing at Work in September.
Yes: My Biometric Screening!
Which of course meant Blood Tests, Blood Pressure, BMI Analysis, and the Utterly Horrific “Getting On The Scale For the First Time in a Year”.
Okay so I *did* tell the Screening Broad that I have at least Five Pounds of Product in My Hair and to take that into account…
Plus Gravity has gotten Stronger due to the Space Dust Thing…
But she made me get on the Digital Scale anyway.
First, the Scale said “Yo! Two of Y’all Are Gonna Have To Get Off!”
Then, when it finally registered,
It read “Volkswagen”.
Gravity Is Not My Friend.
So Evidently I’m the Perfect Weight for My Height, Bone Structure, BMI, and Age.
*If* I Were a 1964 Volkswagen Mini-Bus.
Really.
Bring On The Ice Age!
