"...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like the fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." - Jack Kerouac

Venture Bros. Season 3
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:05 pm EDT, Jul 12, 2008

The problem with TiVo is that you never see commercials. So I almost missed that the The Venture Bros. returned for a 3rd season.

If you aren't watching this show you are a fool.

From last night's episode:

Dean: She's the Wereodile!
Dr Venture: I almost f@$&ed a wereodile?
Dean: Don't worry dad [grab chair]... [smacks Dr Quymn] The power of Christ compels you!

and of course:

Henchman 24: Come on! They have one female servicing a large group of males. That implies a species that lays eggs.
Henchman 21: Oh my God, you're crazy! They're so obviously mammals!
Henchman 24: Please! She'd be in estrus 24/7 if she didn't lay eggs.
Henchman 21: Smurfs don't lay eggs! I won't tell you this again! Papa Smurf has a fucking beard! They're mammals!

Clint and I watch this show on a regular basis.

The Associated Press: Animal rights protesters torment scientists
Topic: Miscellaneous 4:34 pm EDT, Jul 11, 2008

Accompanying the attacks is increasingly tough talk from activists such as Dr. Jerry Vlasak, a spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front press office. In an interview with The Associated Press, he said he is not encouraging anyone to commit murder, but "if you had to hurt somebody or intimidate them or kill them, it would be morally justifiable."

Bizarre Wedding Traditions
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:22 pm EDT, Jun 27, 2008

And for our friday afternoon light reading enjoyment, an entertaining article about wedding traditions and their bizarre origins. My favorite is about how "best men" used to hide weapons under the church floor, in case they needed to help the groom "steal" the bride. Nice...

Um, I would venture to guess that 90% of the articles on Memestreams are generated by this user. If this is indeed a human, I'd like to know what they do for a living, other than read articles online and post them on Memestreams. I check the site almost daily and there's absolutely no way I could ever read the amount of material generated by this user. Much less absorb it, comment on it, and pontificate about it. What's up?

Bahahaha...this is an awesome thread. Jeremy is WAY more productive than 5 grad students put together...he puts us all to shame with his brilliance:)

Technology Review: Genesis of a Virus
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:30 pm EDT, Jun  3, 2008

Over the years, HIV has proved a tricky target. No one could definitively show where in the cell it assembled, or when it was released. Certainly no one knew how long it took a single virus to be born. And so much of what's known about HIV and other viruses has been pieced together through experiments that rely on inference: microscopic and chemical probing of cells frozen in different states of viral infection provide only information about what was happening in that cell at a particular moment in time. Now researchers have been able to watch as hundreds of thousands of molecules assemble inside a cell to create a single particle of HIV.

Wow...this is really neat. Scientists have tagged GAG (a major structural protein of HIV) with a fluorescent tag. Using TIRF microscopy (microscopy in which the microscope is able to observe a very thin slice in its focal plane), they were able to do some live cell imaging and show HIV virons assembling REAL TIME! (Be sure NOT to miss the link to the movie, underneath the still image in the article).

BBC NEWS | Health | Immune block tackles Alzheimer's
Topic: Biology 2:20 pm EDT, Jun  3, 2008

The body's immune system could be harnessed to fight back against Alzheimer's disease, research suggests.

Turning off a part of the immune system cleared away harmful brain deposits and improved memory, the mouse study found.

US scientists, reporting their discovery in the journal Nature Medicine, said it was like a "vacuum cleaner" had been working in the brain.

What is neat about this study is that taking away the amyloid plaques actually improved memory....very promising.

This looks like it may be interesting. A wiki-style blog that focuses on technology in the city of Atlanta. I am interested to see how this turns out.
