A View of Conflict

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

See...I'm not gay...

How Americans are living dangerously...

It would be a lot easier to enjoy your life if there weren't so many things trying to kill you every day.

The problems start even before you're fully awake. There's the fall out of bed that kills 600 Americans each year. There's the early-morning heart attack, which is 40 percent more common than those that strike later in the day.

There's the fatal plunge down the stairs, the bite of sausage that gets lodged in your throat, the tumble on the slippery sidewalk as you leave the house, the high-speed automotive pinball game that is your daily commute.

Shadowed by peril as we are, you would think we'd get pretty good at distinguishing the risks likeliest to do us in from the ones that are statistical long shots. But you would be wrong.

We agonize over avian flu, which to date has killed precisely no one in the United States, but have to be cajoled into getting vaccinated for the common flu, which contributes to the deaths of 36,000 Americans each year.

We wring our hands over the mad cow pathogen that might be (but almost certainly isn't) in our hamburger and worry far less about the cholesterol that contributes to the heart disease that kills 700,000 of us annually.

We pride ourselves on being the only species that understands the concept of risk, yet we have a confounding habit of worrying about mere possibilities while ignoring probabilities, building barricades against perceived dangers while leaving ourselves exposed to real ones.

Shoppers still look askance at a bag of spinach for fear of E. coli bacteria while filling their carts with fat-sodden French fries and salt-crusted nachos. We put filters on faucets, install air ionizers in our homes and lather ourselves with antibacterial soap.

"We used to measure contaminants down to the parts per million," says Dan McGinn, a former Capitol Hill staff member and now a private risk consultant. "Now it's parts per billion."

At the same time, 20 percent of all adults still smoke; nearly 20 percent of drivers and more than 30 percent of backseat passengers don't use seat belts; two-thirds of us are overweight or obese.

We dash across the street against the light and build our homes in hurricane-prone areas -- and when they're demolished by a storm, we rebuild in the same spot.

Sensible calculation of real-world risks is a multidimensional math problem that sometimes seems entirely beyond us. And while it may be true that it's something we'll never do exceptionally well, it's almost certainly something we can learn to do better.
Dread skews response

Which risks get excessive attention and which get overlooked depends on a hierarchy of factors. Perhaps the most important is dread.

For most creatures, all death is created pretty much equal. Whether you're eaten by a lion or drowned in a river, your time on the savanna is over. That's not the way humans see things.

The more pain or suffering something causes, the more we tend to fear it; the cleaner or at least quicker the death, the less it troubles us. The more we dread, the more anxious we get, and the more anxious we get, the less precisely we calculate the odds of the thing actually happening.

The same is true for, say, AIDS, which takes you slowly, compared with a heart attack, which can kill you in seconds, despite the fact that heart disease claims nearly 50 times as many Americans than AIDS each year.

We also dread catastrophic risks, those that cause the deaths of a lot of people in a single stroke, as opposed to those that kill in a chronic, distributed way.

Unfamiliar threats are similarly scarier than familiar ones. The next E. coli outbreak is unlikely to shake you up as much as the previous one, and any that follow will trouble you even less.

In some respects, this is a good thing, particularly if the initial reaction was excessive. But it's also unavoidable given our tendency to habituate to any unpleasant stimulus, from pain and sorrow to a persistent car alarm.

The problem with habituation is that it can also lead us to go to the other extreme, worrying not too much but too little. September 11 and Hurricane Katrina brought calls to build impregnable walls against such tragedies ever occurring again.

But despite the vows, both New Orleans and the nation's security apparatus remain dangerously leaky.

"People call these crises wake-up calls," says Dr. Irwin Redlener, associate dean of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness.

"But they're more like snooze alarms. We get agitated for a while, and then we don't follow through."

Troy Gentry Pleads Guilty to Bear Charge

Troy Lee Gentry pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor charge of falsely registering a captive bear as being killed in the wild.

Under the plea, the 39-year-old country singer agreed to pay a $15,000 fine, give up hunting, fishing and trapping in Minnesota for five years, and forfeit both the bear's hide and the bow he used to shoot the animal in 2004. The bear, named "Cubby," was killed in a 3-acre private enclosure.

The plea meant Gentry avoided a trial, which had been scheduled to start Monday.

Gentry, of Franklin, Tenn., declined to comment to the Star Tribune of Minneapolis as he left the courthouse.

Ron Meshbesher, his attorney, said Gentry pleaded guilty to "a simple charge having to do with improper tagging (of a game animal), and that's all it ever was."

Lee Marvin Greenly, 46, Gentry's local hunting guide, pleaded guilty at the same hearing to two felony charges of helping other hunters shoot bears at illegal baiting stations he maintained inside a national wildlife refuge near Sandstone in east-central Minnesota.

Greenly faces a maximum prison sentence of five years for each count, forfeiture of all-terrain vehicles he and employees used to reach the bait stations, and a maximum fine of $400,000.

Gentry told the court he bought the bear from Greenly with the understanding they would videotape a hunt inside the bear's enclosure, which was surrounded by an electric fence.

"Lee and I made a deal about harvesting this bear," Gentry testified. They also agreed to report it was killed in the wild 6 miles east of Sandstone instead of on Greenly's property south of the town.

U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson ordered a pre-sentence investigation for both Gentry and Greenly and told them to appear for sentencing at a date to be announced later, or risk an additional charge.

In exchange for Gentry's plea, federal prosecutors dropped a felony charge of violating the Lacey Act, which authorities said bans possessing or transporting illegally obtained wildlife.

Gentry and Eddie Montgomery are the country singing duo Montgomery Gentry. Their hits include "My Town" and "If You Ever Stop Loving Me."

Web Catalog Offers Prison-Made Products

Internet shopping knows no boundaries, not even for products made behind bars. Maryland Correctional Enterprises, the manufacturing division of the state Division of Correction, has put its 182-page catalog online. Now anyone can see, if not buy, hundreds of items the agency offers for sale to government agencies and Maryland nonprofit organizations. The catalog is at .

The products include institutional clothing, bedding, clocks, signs - and lots of furniture. Nearly half the pages are filled with furniture, including the Slammer table, designed for correctional environments and named "because they put 'em in the slammer," said Jeff Beeson, executive director of Maryland Correctional Enterprises' board of directors.

Topping the furniture offerings is the Traditional Veneer Line, with prices up to $1,885 for a U-shaped desk.

There's pure Maryland pride in the Canton Collection. It features nearly three dozen pieces made from scratch - unlike some of the other lines that are merely assembled at the prisons. The pieces are designed by furniture plant manager Rusty Hyatt, who lives in - where else? - Canton.

The list of seating options reads like a Maryland geography lesson: Silver Spring, Chesapeake, Potomac, New Windsor, Frederick, Bel Air, Crisfield, Monkton, Hampstead, Ellicott, Allegany and Woodbine.

"We're proud to be Maryland. We're proud to be the prison industry for Maryland," Beeson said.

He said MCE employs about 1,600 inmates at nine prisons and in warehouse, delivery and photocopying jobs outside prison walls. They are paid a base rate of $1.10 to $2.60 a day, Beeson said.

The agency sold $42.8 million worth of goods last year, making it 10th among prison industries in sales in the United States.

Beeson said inmates who work in the plants tend to re-offend and return to prison at about half the rate of those who don't. Inmates must have a high-school diploma or GED to work for the agency, which can help with their schooling.

"We truly believe we're doing something good here," Beeson said.

Private furniture makers aren't as keen on prison industries. The Independent Office Products and Furniture Dealers Association, based in Arlington, Va., supports a bill passed in September by the U.S. House of Representatives that would require Federal Prison Industries Inc. to compete on a more even footing with the private sector for federal contracts. A 2004 law ended its monopoly on supplying office furniture and other items to federal agencies, but left it with some advantages, said Michael Ochs, the trade group's director of government affairs.

He said the association has concentrated on the federal, not the state level. But Ochs said state prison industries - and every state has such an agency - also cut into private industry sales.

"We would like to see open and fair competition where the industry can compete on an equal footing," Ochs said.

Maryland law requires state agencies to buy from Maryland Correctional Enterprises any goods or services it can provide at prices at or below the prevailing average market price.

Beeson said Maryland Correctional Enterprises tries to limit its negative economic impact on the private sector by producing things not made by Maryland companies.

"Every year we study it, and for the whole state of Maryland, we constitute less than 3 percent of anyone's business in any one category," he said.

One category in which the agency has no competition is license plates. It makes every tag sold in Maryland, accounting for $3.8 million in sales.

Rock of ages still rolling for Stones

Mick Jagger and Co. manage to shrug off a flurry of recent health issues and turn in a spirited, hit-laden set at Dodger Stadium.

We can all be thankful that none of the Rolling Stones groused about his lumbago acting up when the group closed the U.S. leg of its long A Bigger Bang tour Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.

But clearly, the veteran rockers are now at that time of life when health issues can take over the conversation. The show took place four days late because Mick Jagger's physician ordered a few days of additional rest for his overstressed voice, and the 63-year-old rock god humbly thanked fans for their patience. Then Keith Richards, 62, gave a shout-out to his head doctor during his two numbers in the spotlight, and, for a change, a rock star wasn't referring to his psychiatrist. He was, of course, referring to the brain surgeon who drilled his skull to alleviate a blood clot last spring after a freak accident during a vacation in Fiji.

Charlie Watts, 65, gave his bandmates and fans a scare when he underwent surgery for throat cancer two years ago, although he's given every indication on this tour that he's back in top form. Guitarist Ron Wood, the kid of the core band at a spry 59, seemed no worse for the wear following his recent stint in rehab.

The gargantuan video screen sandwiched between the multi-story set, which allowed a few hundred fans to share the stage with their heroes, made the age factor all the more evident: These guys' faces have more wrinkles than a week's worth of dirty laundry.

Yet with a performance as vigorous as they turned in Wednesday, it takes neither a brain surgeon nor a rocket scientist to figure out why the Stones are still at it after more than four decades. The two-hour show was packed with grand-scale music and staging easily big enough to fill the vastness of a stadium, while retaining enough looseness and unscripted moments — musical and otherwise — to make it clear this remains a real rock band passionately playing real rock music.

Now that the immediacy of 2005's "A Bigger Bang" album has receded into the recent past, it was pretty much back to Stones business as usual. The hit-jammed set list included just two songs from "Bang," its liveliest album in a generation — the confessional ballad "Streets of Love" and the quintessentially Stonesy rocker "Oh No, Not You Again." (As if there's a rocker in the group's repertoire that's anything other than quintessentially Stonesy?)

In that respect, there was a missed opportunity, given the presence of opening act Bonnie Raitt, whose set with her band was more easygoing (and easy listening) than you might have expected for a Stones event. Sure, it was nice that she came out to harmonize with Jagger during "Dead Flowers." But the ideal use of her talent would have been to let her strap on a Strat and handle the greasy slide-guitar work of "Bigger Bang's" down-home bluesy "Back of My Hand," which also would have injected an extra bit of freshness into the set list.

What helped temper the over-familiarity quotient was the choice of some deep-catalog songs, including "Connection" from "Between the Buttons" and a particularly driving rendition of "She Was Hot" from "Undercover."

Near the show's end, Jagger ran the equivalent of wind sprints across the stage's long runways that stretched from left field to deep right, a rock 'n' roll Jack LaLanne still fit enough in his 60s to flex his toned physique.

He's taken his share of hits over the years for his famous youthful boast that he'd rather be dead than still singing "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" when he was 45.

Ahh, but he and his mates were so much older then — they're younger than that now.

Anti-War Activists Plan 'Global Orgasm For Peace'

SAN FRANCISCO Two peace activists have planned a massive anti-war demonstration for the first day of winter.

But they don't want you marching in the streets. They'd much rather you just stay home.

The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace.

"The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it," Reffell said Sunday. "Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change."

The couple are no strangers to sex and social activism. Sheehan, no relation to anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, brought together nearly 50 women in 2002 who stripped naked and spelled out the word "Peace."

The stunt spawned a mini-movement called Baring Witness that led to similar unclothed demonstrations worldwide.

The couple have studied evolutionary psychology and believe that war is mainly an outgrowth of men trying to impress potential mates, a case of "my missile is bigger than your missile," as Reffell put it.

By promoting what they hope to be a synchronized global orgasm, they hope to get people to channel their sexual energy into something more positive.

The couple said interest appears strong, with 26,000 hits a day to their Web site,

"The dream is to have everyone in the world (take part)," Reffell said. "And if that means laying down your gun for a few
minutes, then hey, all the better."

Principal's wife having sex with student

29-year-old woman allegedly had contact with male student on school trip

A former social-studies teacher at a Colorado high school, who also happens to be married to the principal, has been charged with with having had sexual contact with a male student during an overnight school camping trip.

Carrie McCandless, 29, could be sentenced for up to 12 years in prison for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and contributing to the delinquency of a minor based for the incident that allegedly occured when she spent time alone in a room with the 17-year-old boy at the Estes Park YMCA.

According to Brighton Police Chief Clint Blackhurst, McCandless became the only adult chaparone on the October trip after an adult male chaparone cancelled at the last minute.

McCandless has taught for six years at Brighton Charter High School, where her husband is the principal.

The teacher, who has been fired from her job, turned herself in to authorities and was released after posting a $20,000 bond.

Brazilian town's free Viagra gives elderly a boost

The mayor of a small Brazilian town has begun handing out free Viagra, spicing up the sex lives of dozens of elderly men and their partners.

"Since we started the free distribution of sexual stimulants, our elderly population changed. They're much happier," said Joao de Souza Luz, the mayor of Novo Santo Antonio, a small town in the central state of Mato Grosso.

Souza Luz said 68 men over the age of 60 already had signed up for the program, which was approved by the town's legislature and has been dubbed "Happy Penis," or "Pinto Alegre" in Portuguese.

But the program also has had the unforeseen consequence of encouraging some extramarital affairs, Souza Luz said.

"Some of the old men aren't seeking out their wives. They've got romances on the side," he said.

Diamonds are a girls best friend...

The most expensive piece of diamond apparel ever made is making its debut in the 2006 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Designer Susan Rosen worked with Steinmetz Diamonds to create the ultimate bikini, a special commission in collaboration with the swimsuit editors.

The bikini is made up of over 150 carats of D Flawless diamonds, some of the rarest in the world including ....

a 51ct D Flawless Pear Shape,
a 30ct D Flawless Emerald Cut,
a pair of 15ct D Flawless Rounds and
a pair of 8ct D Flawless Pear Shapes.

All of the diamonds are free of inclusions, or nature's birthmarks, making the sparkle and brilliance unsurpassable.

That,coupled with perfect D colored stones, which are set in platinum, makes the bikini truly extraordinary.

The diamond bikini is body jewelry that reflects the eternal love and beauty of women. Not a lot of materials for $30 million.

Unlucky star in a new Jaws movie

Many times in the Jaws movies, viewers have shuddered at the awesome power of the Great White Shark.

But this unfortunate cape fur seal got to experience those infamous teeth only once - and they were the last things it saw. In astonishing footage for the BBC's Planet Earth series, the 12ft shark is seen swallowing its victim in virtually a single gulp.

Such is the impact as it blasts through the surface from the deep that both hunter and prey fly six feet clear of the water.

The cape fur seal is an inquisitive and friendly animal and will often accompany scuba divers.

The dramatic ambush was captured on camera near South Africa's Seal Island, six miles from Cape Town.

Packs of Great Whites, each weighing up to a ton, hunt around the island, and the BBC's camera team filmed every stage of the grisly process for next Sunday's programme.

Robert Altman Dies...

Director Robert Altman, who introduced an innovative ensemble style of filmmaking in such works as "MASH," "Gosford Park" and "Nashville," has died at age 81, his production company said on Tuesday.

A spokesman told Reuters that Altman died on Monday night but gave no cause of death.

Altman revealed at the Academy Awards in March that he had a heart transplant when he was in his 70s but kept it a secret in order to keep working. He received a lifetime achievement award at the same ceremony.

Altman, born in Kansas City, Missouri, was 30 when he made his first feature film.

On the strength of that he moved to Hollywood where his big break came with "MASH," the 1970 black comedy about a medical unit during the Korean War. Its irreverent ad lib dialogue caught viewers by surprise and ushered in a new era of film making.

'Wizard' outfits ???

They may be among the most powerful men in the world, but George Bush and Vladimir Putin looked more like a couple of Harry Potter's masters at Hogwarts school.

The American and Russian presidents were wearing traditional silk Vietnamese robes to mark the end of the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Hanoi, along with the leaders of 19 other countries.

It has become the custom to try on the host country's traditional costume.

Before wars and communist revolution in Viet- nam, the ao dai was a popular unisex item, most elegant on slender women who were said to 'reveal everything yet show nothing' beneath the figure-hugging tunic.

Now it is making a comeback but is used mainly for wedding dresses and girls' school uniforms.

Bill Clinton began the dressing up tradition at the first Apec summit in Seattle in 1993. His choice of traditional American dress was the leather bomber jacket.

Can You Get Dear With A Dead Deer?

Wisconsin motion argues sex with animal carcass not a crime

NOVEMBER 16--Meet Bryan James Hathaway, alleged venison lover. The Wisconsin man, 20, is facing charges that he had sex last month with a dead deer. Hathaway, who previously has served time for killing a horse he intended to sexually assault, allegedly found the deer in a ditch alongside a roadway. Now Hathaway's lawyer has filed a court motion (a copy of which you'll find here) arguing that since the animal was already dead, Hathaway should not face a misdemeanor rap of sexual gratification with an animal. "The statute does not prohibit one from having sex with a carcass," lawyer Fredric Anderson wrote in the motion filed in Douglas County Circuit Court. As reported in today's Daily Telegram, in response to Anderson's motion, prosecutor James Boughner noted that state criminal statutes did not seem to "draw a line between the living and the dead." Judge Michael Lucci, who heard motion arguments Tuesday, said he will issue a decision by December 1.

GreenCard Energy Drink

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- As the energy drink category expands to the point where every new offering apparently needs an even more controversial stance than its predecessor, one new energy beverage is looking to target an illegal market -- migrant Hispanics illegally crossing the border to the U.S.

GreenCard Energy Drink, made by Z CORP, markets its energy beverage to illegal immigrants on their way to the U.S. It claims that it will give energy to those looking to cross the border and potentially outrun U.S. Border Patrol.

"It's a fact," that people illegally cross the border, president and CEO of Z CORP, Jeff Weiss, told CSNews Online. "If they are going to come to the U.S., I don't want them dying in the desert, I'd rather have them hydrated."

Weiss seriously believes that the beverage will be a big sell in Southwestern c-stores, mainly as a novelty drink. It's Weiss' opinion that he can gain money and publicity through this beverage and its market.

The drink will have a "brand loyalty unique amongst Hispanic energy drinks," Weiss said in a statement, but told CSNews Online that he doesn't feel it is offensive to the group it targets.

It's tagline: "Papers, we don't need no stinkin' papers" -- a clear play on a famous line from the film 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.'

Is the c-store industry going to jump on such a beverage? Chances are the beverage will not end up in 7-Eleven's coolers, as it requested the controversial Cocaine energy beverage pulled from shelves of its stores earlier this month, "They just didn't think that the product's name was appropriate for the image we're trying to portray,'' said spokeswoman Margaret Chabris at the time. "Our image is legal," she added.

But Weiss told CSNews Online that he believes that his beverage is less offensive than Cocaine. Its chances in c-stores, however, remain unknown.

FedEX - The Note !!!

Federjerk took up his Sharpie and left behind his last words on the shower door of his dressing room at the House of Blues in Chicago, where he performed November 8.
Us Magazine said in case there are any doubts about its authenticity, they have an actual signed Kevin Federline poster hanging up and the signatures match up.
In more news, Us magazine insists it was a handwritten letter from Federline that finally pushed the pop star over the edge, causing her to end the two-year union for good. On November 6, after a week of fighting via text message, Federjerk sent a handwritten letter to his wife, who was staying at a separate hotel in NYC. “It mostly blamed Britney for all their problems,” a family insider says of the letter.
Hours later, enraged, she notified her attorney to start drafting the divorce petition and signed it at the hotel just before making a surprise appearance on CBSs Late Show With David Letterman – minus her wedding ring. “That’s why she looked so happy,” says the source. “A weight had been lifted.”

Fake Photo of Breastfeeding News Anchor

MARIE CLAIRE Magazine publishes a fake photo of ABCNEWS anchor Elizabeth Vargas -- who appears to be breastfeeding her new baby boy at the anchor desk!

The controversial photo accompanies a Q & A with Vargas in the December issue.

A source close to the anchor says Vargas' is disappointed but has a sense of humor about the whole thing.

"Elizabeth was more than happy to sit for the interview but was disturbed that the magazine would set aside basic journalistic standards to photoshop her head onto a fake image. Vargas did joke that her real baby is cuter, that she is proud to breastfeed her newborn but wouldn't do it at the anchor desk and that she wouldn't be caught dead in that ugly gold blouse!"

A MARIE CLAIRE spokesperson counters: "There isn’t a working mother who can’t relate to this image and immediately identify with the very real dilemma Elizabeth Vargas wrestled with. We do not believe anyone seriously thought she would nurse and report the news the same time! This is an image illustration and is stated so with the byline of this story. We only want to make the point that women choosing between their career and being a parent is a tough decision that we are very sensitive to. We at MARIE CLAIRE think that Vargas is a great journalist and we look forward to watching her on 20/20. We are also grateful for her interview, which we hope reaches the many women who can relate to this serious topic."

Domino's Brownie Bust

SEPTEMBER 26--Meet Alex Sawyer and Andrew Wilkins. The North Carolina couple was arrested earlier this month after an apparent case of the munchies led them to break into a Domino's Pizza branch and bake up a batch of the fast food chain's new brownies.

The pair was nabbed at 5:30 AM on September 7 after a Stallings Police Department officer noticed a suspicious car--with keys in its ignition and a warm engine--parked outside a small strip mall. When Sawyer and Wilkins noticed police on the scene, they fled out the Domino's front door and were apprehended after a short chase, said Sergeant Mike Kane. Sawyer, a 21-year-old hair stylist, and Wilkins, a 20-year-old carpet cleaner, were arrested and later charged with breaking and entering and larceny, both felonies.

Additionally (and not surprisingly), Sawyer was found carrying a marijuana pipe, for which she was hit with a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia count. Kane said that when he entered the Domino's, he discovered that the establishment's ovens were on and a box of brownies had been freshly baked. Investigators determined that Wilkins had previously worked at the Domino's and was fired for allegedly stealing a cash box.

Kane said that Wilkins told him that he went to the closed store to return a set of keys and was not there to steal anything. Though Wilkins did acknowledge the pre-dawn baking: "I was just making food, I was hungry." Police recovered the brownies, valued at $5, and found no evidence that anything had been taken from the eatery.

At the time of the duo's arrest, Kane had not yet had the opportunity to taste the Domino's Brownie Squares, which were added to the chain's menu in late-August. He subsequently tried out the dessert, which boasts a "warm, chocolaty center," and pronounced them "killer."

700 Year Old 'Mickey Mouse' found Austrian Church!

What appears to be a 700-year-old picture of Mickey Mouse has been discovered on a church fresco in Austria.

Walt Disney first sketched his character in 1928 but an Austrian art historian spotted an uncannily similar drawing.

The painting, which has been dated back to the early 14th Century, is in the Community Church in Malta, Carinthia. Next to a large sketch of St. Christopher is a clear drawing of the mouse. Art historian Eduard Mahlknecht believes the similarity to Mickey is pure coincidence. He told Austrian daily 'Krone: "St Christopher was often depicted surrounded by various animals and sea-life, and in this case something that resembles Mickey Mouse. "It is most likely to be a drawing of a beaver or a weasel."

However, Carinthia's tourism office is already thinking of ways to cash in on the sketch. Siggi Neuschitzer, manager of the Malta Tourism Association, said: "The similarity of the painting to Mickey Mouse is so astounding that the Disney concern could even lose its world-wide copyright license.

"Our Mickey Mouse is 700 years older than Disney's and we will get it legally examined."

Where Web Sites Go to Die

When a Web site dies, it goes to Web heaven --

The Internet generally has complete disregard for keeping records or charting its past. Once a Web site it gone, it seems to disappear into the digital ether.

But with its "Wayback Machine," seeks to bring posterity to the Web by archiving Web sites with the help of Alexa Internet, a search service that records Web traffic and features a "crawler" tool to capture pages.

A message on says that with the large amount of public records and information moving online, Internet libraries have become necessary to maintain the public's "right to remember": "The Internet Archive is working to prevent the Internet -- a new medium with major historical significance -- and other `born-digital' materials from disappearing into the past."

The nonprofit site, which has logged more than 55 billion Web pages, was founded by Brewster Kahle in 1996 and collaborates with the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian. It doesn't index sites that are password-protected or blocked to the public.

Though the amount of text recorded by is greater than the collection of the Library of Congress, the site also stores live music (especially Grateful Dead shows), old video and movies that have passed into public domain, like 1922's "Nosferatu" and the 1949 noir "D.O.A."

The legal admissibility in court of old sites saved by is an interesting legal battle likely to emerge more frequently. Earlier this year, a health care company named Healthcare Advocates Inc. sued after it lost a 2003 case that turned on the evidence of Healthcare Advocates' old Web site (saved on isn't the only site trying to save the ever-changing Web., which constantly regurgitates itself with user-inputted data, is now being watched by

Any information not truthful enough to make it into Wikipedia is probably dubious twice over, but Wikidumper helps provide some oversight to the editors of Wikipedia, who can take down an entry for any number of reasons.

Officer Down...

Oops, I did it again: via text message

Britney Spears told husband of two years Kevin Federline that she was divorcing him via a text message while he was recording a TV interview.

The 24-year-old singer decided it was all over on Monday after a very tempestuous marriage and sent a message to Kevin's BlackBerry telling him exactly that.

The wannabe rapper, 27, was filming a segment for MuchMusic in Canada at the time. He interrupted the interview and stormed off, returning 30 minutes later visibly upset.

While the mother of two, who looks amazing after giving birth just eight weeks ago, was filing divorce papers at the Los Angeles superior court citing "irreconcilable differences", Kevin was gushing about his "supportive-wife" and how much he loved his family. The whole incident has been caught on video.

The news of the split broke a day after Britney appeared on the David Letterman show in America showing off her new toned figure and bobbed haircut. She didn't mention the break-up but there have been numerous reports since June that the marriage was in trouble.

Just last week the pop princess had a furious Halloween bust-up with K-Fed, and she was overheard screaming: "You're useless - you're nobody," at him at the nightclub launch of his own rap album.

Federline, her former backing dancer, was later seen crouched in a corner crying. He then spent last weekend in New York plugging his debut album, before heading to Canada on Monday.

The couple, who married in September 2004 after dating for three months, had arranged to meet in New York but Kevin checked into a separate hotel, leaving Britney with their two sons, Sean Preston, one, and two-month-old Jayden James.

She was later seen in tears as she exchanged angry words with her husband on her mobile phone. He is believed to have stood her up, preferring to hit the town with five friends instead.

This was the last straw for Britney, who has asked that the couples' assets -including "jewellery and other personal effects", and "earnings and accumulations from and after the date of separation" - are confirmed as "separate" property.

But she came out of hiding last night and embarked on a two-hour tour of New York's tourist attractions in a bid to show she is getting over the split.

When asked how she was coping with the divorce she replied: "I'm doing OK." She looked like she didn't have a care in the world as she went to the famous ice rink at the city's Rockefeller Center with her former manager Larry Rudolph.

Britney fired Mr Rudolph, who was responsible for making her a star, a few years ago but it looks as if he may have a hand in her new album Fears Within, which is due out next summer.

This will be Britney's second divorce. She wed childhood friend Jason Alexander in January 2004 in Las Vegas. The marriage was annulled two days later.

And he won't get half her fortune

Kevin federline can forget getting his hands on Britney's wealth. The singer is worth more than 65 million but most of that money is safe as the couple had a prenup agreement.

The 4 million Malibu mansion, currently home to Britney, and sometimes to Federline, will be divided 50/50.

Any gift worth more than $10,000 the couple have given each other will go back to the original purchaser.

This includes a custombuilt motorcycle Britney gave her husband for

Christmas two years ago. Even though he won't have access to her millions, Britney will still support him for a while. She has to pay Federline $30,000 a month for a year - half the time they were wed. This means that he will receive about 180,000.

Just another day in PRISON for Charles Manson...

Burger King orders up Xbox games

Last month, McDonald's introduced a line of Happy Meal toys featuring Nintendo mascots like Mario and Donkey Kong. As part of the company's image-reworking emphasis on fitness, each of the toys had a physical activity focus.

The King should probably be wearing a helmet.

Today, McDonald's rival Burger King officially announced a campaign that takes a different tack to a gaming tie-in. Instead of offering toys that evoke games and promote activity, the fast-food chain is going to offer three Xbox and Xbox 360 games of its own this holiday season, each of them slathered with Burger King branding like so much mayonnaise on a Double Whopper with cheese.

Burger King's plans to get into gaming were originally leaked in April by a company doing market research for the fast-food chain.

Pocketbike Racer will feature a number of Burger King mascots, including the King, the Subservient Chicken, the Whopper Jr., and former host of E!'s Wild On series, Brooke Burke. Five levels will be included, as will multiplayer races for four people on the same Xbox or Xbox 360, or eight people online over Xbox Live.

A disgruntled fry slinger attempts regicide at the carnival.

Big Bumpin' also takes a lineup of BK mascots and pits them against one another in vehicular competition, but this game isn't a race so much as a bumper-car ride. The game features a number of theme-park settings and on-track hazards like saws and bottomless pits, as well as bump-pumping power-ups. Big Bumpin' will also have four-player action and online multiplayer support.

Finally, Sneak King takes the stealth action genre and puts it to a friendlier use than usual. Instead of tiptoeing behind enemy guards to silently snap their necks, players will sneak up on hungry people to surprise them with offerings of Burger King food. Gamers will have to sneak up on people in a logging yard, a construction site, downtown, and the suburbs, and they will be graded on their performance "based on how elaborate the delivery is executed."

The King's diplomatic immunity protects him from any and all restraining orders.

This is not the King's first visit to the world of gaming. The genuinely off-putting monarch of meat appeared in Electronic Arts' Fight Night Round 3 as an unlockable manager character to accompany your boxer to the ring.

The three games will be playable on either the Xbox or Xbox 360. They will be available from November 19 through December 24 at participating Burger King locations for $3.99 with the purchase of a value meal. All of the games are rated E for Everybody.

[UPDATE] It appears that the fast-food promotional tie-in isn't the only first that can be attributed to these games. "These are not backward-compatible original Xbox games, but truly designed and developed for each platform separately," the Burger King representative said. "There are two versions on each disc, specifically made for each platform. This has never been done before for a title."

[UPDATE 10/3] The Burger King representative contacted GameSpot this morning to correct a previous statement. It turns out that the three games will have achievements for the Xbox 360 after all.

All she thinks about is dollars'

Heather Mills reportedly wants £80-million in her divorce settlement with Sir Paul McCartney.

The former Beatle - who is rumoured to be worth around £800-million - was overheard in a London café telling literary agent Peter Cox that his
estranged wife was determined to get as much money as possible from their pending court case.

He said: "She is going to take me for £80-million, because we now know it's for £80-million. All she thinks about is dollars."

The songwriter, 64, also reportedly branded the 38-year-old former model - who recently made accusations in legal divorce papers that Sir Paul was violent towards her - as a "liar" and a "bully".

According to reports, he said: "Everyone knows she is a liar, she even lied in her autobiography. Everybody knows that.

"She has told so many lies like the one about me being a drunk - just
because I go to pubs.

"It's all a pack of lies you know, that I am stingy - that's another one.

"And it's all c**p and rubbish. If she doesn't get what she wants, she'll
pick a fight.

"I am really miserable, bullied actually. It just p***es me off, it is such
c**p. I am being described as a b*****d and it's not true."

Sir Paul reportedly arranged the meeting with Cox last Wednesday
to collect "explosive" audio tape recordings of the singer's late wife Linda talking about their marriage.

Paul - who left the meeting carrying a white package - is rumoured to have paid £200 000 for the cassettes, which Cox made when he was co-authoring her 1989 book, Linda's McCartney's Home Cooking, to ensure Heather cannot use them as evidence in their divorce proceedings.

The land-mine campaigner had hoped the 20 hours of tapes would support her claim that Paul was abusive.

Last week, Paul's lawyers demanded Cox sign a legal agreement saying he would not make the contents of the cassettes public.

However, this does not mean he is barred from talking about the
conversations he had with Linda and the judge who hears the divorce between Paul and Heather will have the power to order that the tapes are played in court.

Couples Go on `procreation Vacations'

When Lucinda Hughes heard she would have to drink sea moss elixir while vacationing in the Bahamas, she was certain it would make her sick. Sure enough, three months later, Hughes is very sick _ every morning _ and expecting her first baby in April.

She got pregnant after she and her husband went on a three-day Procreation Vacation at a resort on Grand Bahama Island.

It's part of a trend in which hotels around the world are luring couples who are trying to have a baby. Resorts are offering on-site sex doctors, romantic advice and exotic food and drink calculated to put lovers in the mood and hasten the pitter-patter of little feet.

Even some obstetricians are promoting the trend. Dr. Jason James of Miami said he often encourages couples trying to have a baby to sneak away for a few days, and he often sees it work.

"One of the most easy, therapeutic interventions is to recommend a vacation," James said. "I think the effect of stress on our physiology is truly underestimated."

Hughes and her husband, Kemry, went to the Westin at Our Lucaya Grand Bahama Island, where the three-night Procreation Vacation starts at $1,893. They lounged on the beach, swam in the pool, sipped pumpkin soup and enjoyed couple's massages. Hughes and her husband were also also served an age-old Caribbean fertility concoction three times a day: sea moss, the Caribbean's version of Viagra, mixed with evaporated milk, sugar and spices. (She said it tasted like an almond smoothie.)

The chain also offers the package at their resorts on St. John and Puerto Rico.

"My husband and I thought that we would go on the vacation and learn all these nice fertility secrets and we'd be practicing them for a number of months for them to work," said Hughes, 35, who conceived the day she got back from the trip. "We were stunned. There's definitely some truths to the foods and the elixirs."

The couple had been trying for only two months, since their wedding in May. But like most couples they have hectic schedules in Washington, where she is a freelance writer and he is a city employee. Cell phones are always ringing, day planners are jammed. "We're all overscheduled," Hughes said.

But the couple let go in the tranquil Bahamas and made time for luxuries often skipped at home, such as romantic dinners and cuddling, she said.

The Birds and the Bees package at the Five Gables Inn & Spa on Maryland's Chesapeake Bay includes a two-night stay with a couple's massage, oysters (purported to be an aphrodisiac) and wine, a pair of heart-print boxer shorts and a CD from love crooner Barry White for about $810 per couple.

There is a Procreation Ski Vacation in Jackson Hole, Wyo., where couples can snuggle by a toasty fire, enjoy a candlelit dinner for two in their room and take a dogsled trip to a nearby hot springs at the Teton Mountain Lodge.

For about $1,800, couples can book a conception cruise on the "Love Boat." They are taken to a romantic island on the luxury liner of Singapore sex guru Dr. Wei Siang Yu.

At the Miraval Resort in Tucson, Ariz., sex experts Dr. Lana Holstein and her husband, Dr. David Taylor, help couples with such things as ovulation schedules and achieving intimacy.

"The damage that working for conception does to the sexual relationship, it's really, really impactful. This business about being so tense about conceiving a child and feeling like the clock is ticking makes people much more scheduled," said Holstein, author of "Your Long, Erotic Weekend." "They lose sight of the sensual."

She said getting away to spa or a hotel really can aid conception: "It's the relaxation factor. It's that all the other stressors in life are gone."

Now three months into the pregnancy, Lucinda and Kemry Hughes have picked out baby names: Kemry if it's a boy, and if it's a girl, Lucaya, for the resort that made it happen.

Innocent Girl Held A Week In North Platte Jail

“We are horribly sorry,” the cop said.

The 17-year-old girl who was wrongly locked in jail for seven days might be feeling terribly lucky.

Amanda Sylvester might still be in jail, facing criminal charges that included aiding and abetting a robbery, were it not for an anonymous tip to a Crimestopper hotline.

er arrest and arraignment stemmed from mistaken identity, according to Lieutenant Rick Ryan of the North Platte Police Department. One of the men involved in the recent robbery of a Kwik Shop identified Sylvester through a photograph, but said he didn’t know her name.

“Amanda Sylvester was not involved in the robbery,” Ryan said. “We have no information or any reason to believe that Amanda is involved in drugs or any illegal activity. We are horribly sorry about what happened.”

To make matters worse for Sylvester, she had been arraigned as a adult and County Judge Kent Turnbull set bail at $250,000; she would have had to post $2,500 to be released.

Sylvester cried in court October 24 as Turnbull read the charges to her.

"I wasn't even there," Sylvester said. "I know these guys but don't understand why they're using my name."

"That may be all true but at this point; I just don't know," Turnbull said. "Talk to your attorney."

Although she is only 17, Sylvester was arraigned as an adult.

A week later, the Crimestopper tip led to the arrest of Kayce Schildhauer, 19, of North Platte.

Ryan said the women have very similar looks, and that the mistake was easily understood because of it.

“They have the same color hair, they’re about the same size and they wear the same earrings,” Ryan said. “But they are two different people.”

Her guardian said she was concerned about the way Sylvester had been treated by the system – especially the fact that she was arraigned as an adult.

Investigators brought Schildhauer in for questioning, which resulted in her arrest, Ryan said.

Sylvester’s photograph and name had previously been used by local media, informing the community that she was a suspect.

"There have been some really nasty, ugly, things said about Amanda that never should have been allowed," Ryan said.

Police Chief Martin Sutschenritter apologized for the error, adding “There is a lesson to be learned here, that everything isn’t always what it appears.”

In addition to Schildhauer, three suspects have been arrested in the case: Nicholas T. Zierke, 19; Jesse S. Dorris, 25; Erik C. Ritter, 19.

Mother jailed for keeping slave

A mother of six has been jailed for seven years for turning her sister-in-law into a domestic slave.

Antonia Pearson-Gaballonie, 35, kept Veronica Sandeman, now 26, as a slave, assaulted her, forced her to work naked and made her beg for food over a number of years, York Crown Court heard.

Pearson-Gaballonie, of New Lane, Acomb, York, was sentenced to a total of seven years after being found guilty earlier of false imprisonment, making threats to kill and six counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm following a week-long trial.

Her partner Neil Pearson, 35, whom she married in June 2004, was jailed for two years after being found guilty of one count of aiding and abetting an assault.

The Recorder of York, Judge Paul Hoffman, told Pearson-Gaballonie she was a "manipulative and cunning" individual who committed "callous and brutal" attacks on her sister-in-law in a period of systematic abuse, much of which was carried out while the victim was falsely imprisoned and forced to work naked under the gaze of Pearson.

The judge also said she had gone to great lengths to avoid the trial, including making an attempt on her life, and even initially refused to enter the dock for the sentencing hearing on Monday.

Sentencing her partner Pearson, the judge told him: "A thousand pities to see you in the dock because you are so well spoken-of and written-about.

"In my judgment, you allowed yourself to be affected and overborne by your partner or wife, who is a woman capable of domineering others.

"The fact is you did take part in a very serious and sustained assault by her upon this vulnerable girl and you held her wrists so she was powerless against you in a very unpleasant and prolonged attack."

Pearson, who wore an open-neck blue shirt in the dock closed his eyes and remained silent as he was sent down.

DeNiro and 50 Cent Finally Team Up

Robert DeNiro seems to have examined his Oscar-studded resume and come to the following conclusion: Not enough films co-starring rappers.

DeNiro is in talks to co-star with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in a currently untitled police thriller set in New Orleans.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot revolves around a cop (DeNiro) who thinks his partner died in Hurricane Katrina, only to discover that the partner was actually shot to death (which doesn't necessarily mean he didn't die in Hurricane Katrina, but that's neither here nor there). With his new partner (Mr. Cent), he begins to investigate the crime.

Tim Hunter ("River's Edge") is set to direct. Previously titled "Microwave Park" (and set in Los Angeles), the drama is tentatively set to begin production in February.

Missing from the big screen since "Hide and Seek," DeNiro's next film is "The Good Shepherd, which he directed.

Jackson has "Home of the Brave" coming out later this fall.

K-FED UP : Britney Spears Files for Divorce


Britney Spears filed for divorce Tuesday from Kevin Federline, officials said. The Los Angeles County Superior Court filing cites "irreconcilable differences," said court spokeswoman Kathy Roberts.

Spears, 24, married rapper Kevin Federline, 28, in 2004. They have a 1-year-old son, Sean Preston, and an infant son who was born Sept. 12. The divorce papers identify the baby as Jayden James Federline.

Spears married Federline eight months after ending a 55-hour Las Vegas marriage to her childhood friend, Jason Alexander. Her second marriage has provided endless fodder for tabloids, which have speculated frequently that the union was in trouble.

Texas puts 'virtual border watch' online

Texas has started broadcasting live images of the U.S. border on the Internet in a security program that asks the public to report signs of illegal immigration or drug crimes.

A test Web site went live Thursday at with views from eight cameras and ways for viewers to e-mail reports of suspicious activity. Previously, the images had only been available to law enforcement and landowners where the cameras are located.

"There is only one way to test it, and that's open it up for business," said Texas Homeland Security Director Steve McCraw.

Some civil rights groups have criticized the "virtual border watch," saying it will instill fear in border communities and could lead to fraudulent crime reports and racial profiling.

The cameras will operate at hot spots for illegal activity, such as Amistad Reservoir in Del Rio and Falcon Lake in Zapata, and other active border areas such as highway rest stops and inspection stations, officials said. Information e-mailed by viewers goes to the state's operations center and local law enforcement in that area.

McCraw said the project will eventually grow to include at least 70 cameras throughout South Texas, some with zoom lens and thermal capacity. The state is using $5 million in federal security grants that have been earmarked for the web camera program.

Doogie Howser comes out of closet


HARRIS OUT: TV's own Doogie Howser, Neil Patrick Harris, has told People magazine he is ``a very content gay man.''

Harris, currently co-starring on How I Met Your Mother as the womanizing Barney, made the announcement because of ``speculation and interest in my private life and relationships.''

It's the second recent coming-out by a prime-time star. About two weeks ago, T.R. Knight of Grey's Anatomy confirmed to People that he is gay.

18 Tricks to Teach Your Body

Lovingly stolen from Mens’ Health to preserve it.

1. If your throat tickles, scratch your ear!

When you were 9, playing your armpit was a cool trick. Now, as an adult, you can still appreciate a good body-based feat, but you’re more discriminating. Take that tickle in your throat; it’s not worth gagging over. Here’s a better way to scratch your itch: “When the nerves in the ear are stimulated, it creates a reflex in the throat that can cause a muscle spasm,” says Scott Schaffer, M.D., president of an ear, nose, and throat specialty center in Gibbsboro, New Jersey. “This spasm relieves the tickle.”

2. Experience supersonic hearing!

If you’re stuck chatting up a mumbler at a cocktail party, lean in with your right ear. It’s better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech, according to researchers at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. If, on the other hand, you’re trying to identify that song playing softly in the elevator, turn your left ear toward the sound. The left ear is better at picking up music tones.

3. Overcome your most primal urge!

Need to pee? No bathroom nearby? Fantasize about Jessica Simpson. Thinking about sex preoccupies your brain, so you won’t feel as much discomfort, says Larry Lipshultz, M.D., chief of male reproductive medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine. For best results, try Simpson’s “These Boots Are Made for Walking” video.

4. Feel no pain!

German researchers have discovered that coughing during an injection can lessen the pain of the needle stick. According to Taras Usichenko, author of a study on the phenomenon, the trick causes a sudden, temporary rise in pressure in the chest and spinal canal, inhibiting the pain-conducting structures of the spinal cord.

5. Clear your stuffed nose!

Forget Sudafed. An easier, quicker, and cheaper way to relieve sinus pressure is by alternately thrusting your tongue against the roof of your mouth, then pressing between your eyebrows with one finger. This causes the vomer bone, which runs through the nasal passages to the mouth, to rock back and forth, says Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an assistant professor at the Michigan State University college of osteopathic medicine. The motion loosens congestion; after 20 seconds, you’ll feel your sinuses start to drain.

6. Fight fire without water!

Worried those wings will repeat on you tonight? “Sleep on your left side,” says Anthony A. Starpoli, M.D., a New York City gastroenterologist and assistant professor of medicine at New York Medical College. Studies have shown that patients who sleep on their left sides are less likely to suffer from acid reflux. The esophagus and stomach connect at an angle. When you sleep on your right, the stomach is higher than the esophagus, allowing food and stomach acid to slide up your throat. When you’re on your left, the stomach is lower than the esophagus, so gravity’s in your favor.

7. Cure your toothache without opening your mouth!

Just rub ice on the back of your hand, on the V-shaped webbed area between your thumb and index finger. A Canadian study found that this technique reduces toothache pain by as much as 50 percent compared with using no ice. The nerve pathways at the base of that V stimulate an area of the brain that blocks pain signals from the face and hands.

8. Make burns disappear!

When you accidentally singe your finger on the stove, clean the skin and apply light pressure with the finger pads of your unmarred hand. Ice will relieve your pain more quickly, Dr. DeStefano says, but since the natual method brings the burned skin back to a normal temperature, the skin is less likely to blister.

9. Stop the world from spinning!

One too many drinks left you dizzy? Put your hand on something stable. The part of your ear responsible for balance — the cupula — floats in a fluid of the same density as blood. “As alcohol dilutes blood in the cupula, the cupula becomes less dense and rises,” says Dr. Schaffer. This confuses your brain. The tactile input from a stable object gives the brain a second opinion, and you feel more in balance. Because the nerves in the hand are so sensitive, this works better than the conventional foot-on-the-floor wisdom.

10. Unstitch your side!

If you’re like most people, when you run, you exhale as your right foot hits the ground. This puts downward pressure on your liver (which lives on your right side), which then tugs at the diaphragm and creates a side stitch, according to The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Men. The fix: Exhale as your left foot strikes the ground.

11. Stanch blood with a single finger!

Pinching your nose and leaning back is a great way to stop a nosebleed — if you don’t mind choking on your own O positive. A more civil approach: Put some cotton on your upper gums — just behind that small dent below your nose — and press against it, hard. “Most bleeds come from the front of the septum, the cartilage wall that divides the nose,” says Peter Desmarais, M.D., an ear, nose, and throat specialist at Entabeni Hospital, in Durban, South Africa. “Pressing here helps stop them.”

12. Make your heart stand still!

Trying to quell first-date jitters? Blow on your thumb. The vagus nerve, which governs heart rate, can be controlled through breathing, says Ben Abo, an emergency medical- services specialist at the University of Pittsburgh. It’ll get your heart rate back to normal.

13. Thaw your brain!

Too much Chipwich too fast will freeze the brains of lesser men. As for you, press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can. “Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get extremely cold, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too,” says Abo. “In compensating, it overheats, causing an ice-cream headache.” The more pressure you apply to the roof of your mouth, the faster your headache will subside.

14. Prevent near-sightedness!

Poor distance vision is rarely caused by genetics, says Anne Barber, O.D., an optometrist in Tacoma, Washington. “It’s usually caused by near-point stress.” In other words, staring at your computer screen for too long. So flex your way to 20/20 vision. Every few hours during the day, close your eyes, tense your body, take a deep breath, and, after a few seconds, release your breath and muscles at the same time. Tightening and releasing muscles such as the biceps and glutes can trick involuntary muscles — like the eyes — into relaxing as well.

15. Wake the dead!

If your hand falls asleep while you’re driving or sitting in an odd position, rock your head from side to side. It’ll painlessly banish your pins and needles in less than a minute, says Dr. DeStefano. A tingly hand or arm is often the result of compression in the bundle of nerves in your neck; loosening your neck muscles releases the pressure. Compressed nerves lower in the body govern the feet, so don’t let your sleeping dogs lie. Stand up and walk around.

16. Impress your friends!

Next time you’re at a party, try this trick: Have a person hold one arm straight out to the side, palm down, and instruct him to maintain this position. Then place two fingers on his wrist and push down. He’ll resist. Now have him put one foot on a surface that’s a half inch higher (a few magazines) and repeat. This time his arm will cave like the French. By misaligning his hips, you’ve offset his spine, says Rachel Cosgrove, C.S.C.S., co-owner of Results Fitness, in Santa Clarita, California. Your brain senses that the spine is vulnerable, so it shuts down the body’s ability to resist.

17. Breathe underwater!

If you’re dying to retrieve that quarter from the bottom of the pool, take several short breaths first — essentially, hyperventilate. When you’re underwater, it’s not a lack of oxygen that makes you desperate for a breath; it’s the buildup of carbon dioxide, which makes your blood acidic, which signals your brain that somethin’ ain’t right. “When you hyperventilate, the influx of oxygen lowers blood acidity,” says Jonathan Armbruster, Ph.D., an associate professor of biology at Auburn University. “This tricks your brain into thinking it has more oxygen.” It’ll buy you up to 10 seconds.

18. Read minds!

Your own! “If you’re giving a speech the next day, review it before falling asleep,” says Candi Heimgartner, an instructor of biological sciences at the University of Idaho. Since most memory consolidation happens during sleep, anything you read right before bed is more likely to be encoded as long-term memory.
