Must Watch: True Blood

trueblood_posterI have been absolutely DYING to begin watching True Blood, an HBO television series about vampires and how they are coping living in the real-world alongside humans. The show focuses on one girl, Sookie Stackhouse, who has the ability to read minds. The series veers however, from the popularized vampire bit. Instead of the plot-line focusing on a forbidden love, it is smack-filled with sex and violence and anything of the sort which really makes it stand out.

Subsequently, I am watching two other shows: Bleach, an anime series (I know, anime SHUSH, it’s actually really good), and Smallville, and so I do not really want to get ahead of myself with True Blood until I have finished these two. BUT i’M SO EXCITED.

WATCH TRUE BLOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

guylaliberteCanada will be sending its first “space tourist” on September 30 as part of a three-man supply crew headed for the International Space Station.

The tourist, Guy Laliberté, founder and creative mind behind Crique du Soleil, will be joining NASA astronaut Jeff Williams and Russian pilot Maxim Suraev, and are scheduled to launch on a Russian spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

“I think this is a great, great opportunity of inspiration and I intend to inspire myself as much as possible,” said Laliberté, who is paying the grand sum of approximately $35 million to embark on an inspiration-seeking endeavor.

“I’m not a scientist, I’m not a doctor, I’m not an engineer,” Laliberté said. “I’m an artist, I’m a creator and I’ll try to accomplish this mission with my creativity and what life has given me as a tool.” His fellow astronauts are thrilled to be traveling with a creative mind, because they have a “tendency to look at space in a sterile way,”  and they “hope Laliberté can better articulate what it is to be in space.”

In congruence with the 40th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, The Discovery Channel re-aired an episode of “Mythbusters”  that tackled the infamous adventure in an endeavor to reveal whether or not the entire ordeal had been a hoax.

The two hosts, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, attempted to either scientifically prove or disprove the events that took place, such as the flag blowing as if it were in wind, and the shadows being cast in unparalleled directions.

Here is a short clip of what will occur on the episode. (For full episode click HERE)

Spoiler BELOW

In short, the two hosts decided that it was NOT in fact a hoax. They proved everything that occurred that day with real tests, although, as stated in an interview with Savage and Hyneman, physics could have easily proved all of it. Sorry all you conspiracy theorists!

iPhone applications are very innovative in terms of the use of their technology, wherein you have apps that can find your friends, allow you to play video games, or even get you a job; but now it can be used to find you marijuana.

Apple has recently given permission for the distribution of a new app entitled “Cannabis.” The application’s function is to locate and direct you to the nearest legal marijuana distributor. It may also give you options to protest for the legalization of medicinal marijuana in states where it is not.

Many people are arguing the distribution of the $2.99 app, but the ajnag.com, the application’s producer, is retorting that the aim for the app isn’t only to lead the populous to sources of cannabis, but to promote reform on the laws preventing the use of medicinal marijuana, as they see it to be a viable cause.

Here is a video that explains how the app will work:

Teen textingMore and more teenagers have been checking into hospitals complaining about acute pain in their fingertips, back and forearms, and doctors are calling this new combination of ailments “teen texting tendonitis”.

As a CNN video portrays (for video click HERE) one young girl, averaging 200 texts a day, is suffering from said symptoms and both the girl’s mother and doctor recognize a problem.

Seeing this new medical development you cannot help but think that there have been some sad new-comings in this generation, to the point where arthritic ailments are now affecting young people due to over-zealous texting.



Pope Loses Right Arm… To Fracture.

*Subjective

Pope greets hospital staff after surgeryYes, I am being facetious.

Pope Benedict, 82, recently fractured his right arm while away on vacation in Les Combes, an Alpine resort near the French Border.

Benedict had surgery at the hospital of nearby town of Aosta on Friday to set his fractured wrist, but despite this sudden surgery, the pope will not be canceling any of his appearances.

However, God’s seer is most depressed that he didn’t get to write as much as he would have enjoyed while on vacation, such as his memoirs.

*When did something like this become news? HE FRACTURED his wrist, not broke; he’s doing FINE, and he is NOT canceling any plans. This is not news… more like religious gossip, bleh.
