Cops in New York really hate bicyclers and photographers

04/30/08
BICYCLE! BICYCLE! BICYCLE! I want to ride my...BICYCLE!

Good ways to get arrested in NY include riding a bicycle and taking photographs of the police. But if you REALLY want to piss off NYPD cops like Sgt. Timothy Horhoe (the leader of this Gestapo action), refuse to surrender your Constitutional right protecting unlawful search and seizure and don't show them your identification.

Watch the 12 minute video documenting the violations.

Complain to your local government? That's called HARASSMENT!

04/30/08
Arrest that man!

In Bridgeville, PA you better not complain to Borough Manager Lori Collins. If you do, she might just have your arrested for harassment like Marshall Pappert. She called her police buddies after he left 3 voicemails on her office line. There were no threats or profanity in any of those calls. RE-ELECT Lori Collins for Borough Manager!

Will Rap for Food

A local news team watches a "homeless" panhandler for a month. Watches her go home, go shopping with friends, and interviews her mother who suspected that she begs for a living.

Moral of the story? If no one gave money to beggars, they would find another way to survive (like get a job).

Watch the video proof.

Montreal Police fine student $600 for sitting on a ledge. The fact that he had just taken photos of them arresting someone is irrelevant.

04/25/08
You better not lay there, lady, or I will fine you.  Ok, have it your way...

After taking photos of Montreal police arresting someone, Brendan Colin Jones was fined $628 canadian dollars (which is now like $1000 US) for "improper use of city structures." What was he improperly using? The ledge in which he was sitting. So Montreal PD joins the long list of police departments that must be doing something bad when they arrest people because they HATE it when you photograph them doing it.

Boston close to passing Real Estate Directive 10-289

04/25/08
It's for the public good!

Boston is trying to stop the damage done by the sub-prime housing crisis by passing a new foreclosure relief law. It states that any bank that forecloses on a house that has renters in it has to continue renting until they sell the house or the directive expires. You could make some arguements against this but overall, that's not a bad idea. Protecting good renters from being kicked out because their landlords suck is OK, I guess. But check out THIS part:

"However, the measure would also cover individual homeowners who fell behind on their own mortgages."

Ruh, roh! It looks like this bill would allow anyone in Boston who can't really afford to pay their mortgage to let the bank foreclose, become a renter, and then not pay their rent. Wait, what? It is RIDICULOUSLY difficult to evict a renter in Massachusetts.

For those of you who have read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, see if these quotes from Michael Ross sound anything like Wesley Mouch:

“The United States is facing a national housing emergency (and) the City of Boston is facing a serious public emergency in regards to foreclosures,”

“Lenders have an obligation to fix what’s going on... They’ve crippled the American economy.”

Quantum entanglement as a form of communication

04/24/08
Eh?  Quantum Leap what?

Ok readers (all 3 of you), I have a question about quantum entanglement.

Background:
For those of you who don't know what it quantum entanglement is, it is basically a state of existence where two quantum particles (just think of them as grains of sand), are bound in such a way that whatever "state" (think positive or negative charge) one of them is in, the other one will be the opposite. So if one grain is positive, the other one will be negative. This occurs no matter how far apart the two particles are. This is a gross oversimplification and the whole charge/grain of sand thing is a metaphor for particles and spin and things like that. Here is the link to the wikipedia article on quantum entanglement.

Also for the non-astronomer/physicists, the Lorentz transformation is equation for calcluating time when traveling at speeds relative to an observer (I think). Basically, it has been proven with high accuracy clocks and really fast planes that when you travel fast, time slows down for you. I think it goes something like, if you travel for a year at the speed of light, 50+ years will have passed on earth.

Here is the situation:
Take a pair of quantum particles that are entangled. One of them is on Earth and the other is on a ship traveling at near the speed of light. Assume that you have some way of discerning when you are communicating (changing the state) as opposed to the random noise. On earth, mission control intends to send a binary message of 0100 1100 to the ship by changing the state of its particle to corresponding 0 and 1 at 1 hertz (sending one bit per second).

Here is the question:
At what frequency will the ship receive the message? Will the Lorentz transformation apply? If they are traveling at a speed which time is half as fast as earth's time will they receive the message at 2 hertz? Will it be relative to the particle and remain 1 hertz?

I think we might need to involve Joleen on this one, Paul.

Update: Joleen has responded via email! [ Read More ]

3rd Grader suspended for smelling non-toxic marker

04/15/08
If it smells good, it must be bad.

After witnessing eight-year-old Eathan Harris smelling a Sharpie marker, principal Chris Benisch slapped him with a one day suspension for "huffing." When asked for his opinion, toxocologist Dr. Eric Lavonas of the Rocky Mountain Poison Control Center stated that non-toxic markers like Sharpies, while pungent-smelling, cannot be used to get high.

Whatever will this kid do now that this is on his PERMANENT RECORD!?

Studies indicate that guys can't figure out if girls are flirting or just being friendly

04/01/08
No worries, Whitney.  This is from 2004.

An Indiana University study shows that social cues from women are misinterpretted by guys. When they are being friendly, guys think they are being hit on. When they are flirting, guys think the girls are just being nice.

Here's an interesting quote from the article:

Best- selling author Kathy Lette said the research proved that women are far more fluent in body language.

"It is really confusing for women," she said.


Here's a funny rebuttal in the comments section:

How can women be 'far more fluent in body language' when they can't get a simple message across? This is like saying that if a woman mumbles, it's the man's fault if he can't understand her.

What should women get out of this study? You're doing it wrong.
