Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager

Comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla and talk radio host and author Dennis Prager made waves a few months ago by conducting a live on-stage talk before an audience. Hard to believe? Not really, once you’ve heard them when they get rolling. Carolla had Prager on his podcast two days ago, and trust me, you need […]

Act of Valor trailer

I have two words to describe how this movie’s going to perform at the box office. Enormous. Hit.

Video: The Unseen Sea

This time lapse photography of San Francisco mesmerized me. Watching the airliners in their landing patterns was particularly neat. View on ExposureRoom

Any Taliban seeing this …

… would wet his undies.

Malware checks in, but it doesn’t check out

Terrorist-eating warbots?

Imagine turning one loose in Taliban Country! I wonder if one could be programmed to target the scent of patchouli oil, and be set loose in Berkeley? Hat tip: Hot Air 7/17 Update: Drat!

Video: trailer for “The Pacific” (HBO miniseries)

Come March, 2010 I’m going to subscribe to HBO just to watch this. I still watch my DVD boxed set of “Band Of Brothers” at least once a year … … so I suspect I’ll be buying this one in about a year’s time. H/T: BLACKFIVE

Video: flying pit bulls

Now this is a great way to showcase the amazing athleticism of pit bulls. I hate the barbaric practice of dog fighting, and I know from personal experience that a well-trained pit bull is a smart, loyal, gentle, loving, eager-to-please family pet. I grew up with one who was six months younger than I, and […]

Video: severed spines, broken bones treated with nanofibers

Dr. Samuel Stupp and Dr. Ramille Capito explain their research in the field of Bionanotechnology and its contributions to regenerative medicine: I’m a C-6 quad due to a diving accident in 1998, so this research fascinates me. What’s even better is that no embryonic stem cell research is involved.
