Scientists Can See What You Think

Apparently scientists at a top Japanese brain examining school, (ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories) have been able to take direct images from a subject's brain, bringing us one step closer, they say, to being able to see our dreams.

This is amazing... though I'm not totally sure I understand the diagram, which helpfully shows how they collect the data: from the computer screen, the image passes to the brain. OK so far, then, from the brain, the image passes into the computer, and tadaa! You're able to see the brain image. I'm not sure that diagram's really telling me all it could....

The next step, is allegedly being able to see our dreams:

"Did you dream about a blurry white dot surrounded by blurry grey dots?"

"How did you KNOW?!"

Isn't technology marvellous.

Christmas. yay.

If this isn't the meaning of Christmas...I don't know what is.

And one for luck:

I'm not sure I understand the world anymore.

Our Political System

...otherwise known as a riot in a creche.

It really makes me sad how much hooting and hollering goes on in the Houses of Parliament, and also that the room contains on one side the people who rule the country, and on the other, the people who want to. Seriously, when the Tories started jeering, it sounded like lunchtime at the Drones... if they'd had bread-rolls you can be sure Gordon Brown would be neck deep in them.

It's pathetic, and I'm talking about both sides. You're supposed to be leading a country, grow up you fucking morons. All today did was prove that the Conservatives have a simple sense of humour, and have a tendency to over-react. Grow up.

Next week, Tories laugh at a Labour MP who's GOT A STAMMER! ("Seriously though yah, it was hilahrious, I nahrly fell off my char.")
