The best part of the VP debate

As an aside, maybe certain parts of the country just pronounce nuclear that way.

P.S. This is sort of fun: http://www.economist.com/vote2008/ Make sure to note the little seesaw characters on the right. I love biased media, and that’s not sarcasm 🙂

Hey Humans

It’s like high school all over again; can’t concentrate until midnight. But at least I get those three good hours of productivity. Maybe grad school isn’t right for me.

Living Life on the Edge in Wellesley Hills

so perhaps Wellesley is a relatively unexciting place, where the student body at our manner’s school presents the biggest danger to the community, but there are a lot of close calls here. Just this morning I accidentally spilled an entire glass of water onto my surge protector (all is well). When I went to collect my new pair of wellies at the campus center, some girl pulled a butterfly knife out on me to help me open my packages. My lunch meeting was spent discussing on how best to “resolve” the Palin problem, should McCain get elected.

(Actually, in retrospect, girls with knives here seems to be a reoccurring problem. cough)

Now, if you ladies will excuse me I am off to go moisturize.

The Da Vinci Alarm Clock let you follow da Vinci’s 3.5 / .5 sleep schedule(three and a half hours awake, thirty minutes asleep) Designer Marc Owens explains his clock as follows: The Da Vinci Alarm Clock works on a very basic system. The Dot Matrix display will always show either Sleep or Awake. When the product is first switched on the display will immediately show the word Awake. This will continue to be displayed for 3 hours at 30 minutes. It just a concept. The Da Vinci sleep schedule, also known as the “sleep of genius” or polyphasic sleep, is a type of sleep pattern which involves sleeping not more than 5 hours a day. Some experts are more strict, arguing that to follow the Da Vinci sleep schedule, a person must become accustomed to sleeping an average of two hours a day, which is how much Leonardo Da Vinci himself slept; others take the term more loosely, allowing practicants to sleep a few hours a night. The Da Vinci sleep schedule is better suited to people who can control their daily schedules. Basically, the system requires followers to sleep in several 10-minute bursts, for a total of two hours a day. A variation of the Da Vinci sleep schedule requires people to sleep 20 minutes for every four hours that they are awake. This technique, known as “power napping” or the “Uberman’s sleep schedule” is actually in use in many corporations as a way to up production of their employees.
