Brain Computer Interface

Imagine navigating your computer mouse without your hands. Simply thinking, and having your computer respond. Perhaps you'd like to drive down the street and simply think about where you want to be, and your car would drive there. Would you like to use all your concentration and willpower to climb Mount Everest, yet never leave your home, let alone worrying about frostbite.

If so, then you may be interested in new brain computer interfaces. A group of European scientists are currently working on interfaces that work with electroencephalogram (EEG) equipment to track brain waves and interpret them in a way meaningful to a computer.

Persons with disabilities should be the first to benefit from this new technology. An article on the New Scientist magazine website describes how the first generation of this technology is being used.

Sometimes no caption is necessary.

But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.

I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.

This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane. The employees needed to go to prevent another plane from departing late.The airline offered $800 in compensation to the first four people who would volunteer to give up their seats.
