Does your surgeon play video games?

He/She/It should be having a warmup of Super Monkey ball before stiching you up.

From DailyTech & my girlfriend...

New research suggests that Surgeons who play video games prior to surgeries fare better than Surgeons who do not

A new study suggests that surgeons who get their daily dose of video games before a surgery commit fewer errors during surgery. Surgeons who warmed up by playing video games like Super Monkey Ball for 20 minutes immediately prior to performing surgical drills were faster and made fewer errors than those who did not, according to a study at Beth Israel Medical Center New York conducted by Dr James "Butch" Rosser.

Elite Opinion

This website is everything I both love & hate about music. Over the top pretentious & yet good at the same time. Also, it lists little heard of and INDIE projects. There's a really good writeup of a Mike Patton project. I'm a big fan of his because of his work with Fantomas (Link). Let me make my own suggestion. Check out the Director's Cut CD. Awesome!(Link - Elite Opinion)

How to create a MAME...

From (at least) one cool thing...

MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. As the name suggests, MAME emulates multiple arcade machines. In fact, it emulates over 3200 arcade machines from the late 70s all the way through the 90s and even a few more thereafter. Whatever games you recall playing in the past, MAME will emulate authentically.

Excellent & very detailed Post.

The speed limit sucks.

Living in California, and I'm sure many other places, you notice that people don't drive the speed limit. I don't... I enjoy driving fast. Some people decided to see what it would be like if they all drove the speed limit. So 4 cars spread out over the 4 lanes of freeway & all go the same speed, the speed limit. Hillarity insues as people become very irritated. (Link - Google video)

The egg came first...

That's right friends.... The age-old questions is answered.


The key to the age-old question apparently lies in the fact that since genetic material does not change throughout an animal's life, the first bird that evolved into a chicken must have initially existed as an embryo inside an egg.
