Organic Bio Displays?

You know Science has come far when scientist are tampering with Bio-organisms in order to create displays with them.  What will they do next?  So far, they’ve created flashing Bio-organisms that flash light on a monitor display.  Here is an excerpt from the article…

“After the December 2009 ‘Bacteria towing Santa’s wagon‘, this is the ultimate example of life-imitating art. Millions of E. coli bacteria glowing together. Biologists and bioengineers at UC San Diego constructed this remarkable living display by engineering the biological clocks of bacterial cells to fluoresce together like blinking light bulbs. And they synchronized thousands of these blinking bacteria colonies so that millions of them would glow ON and OFF in unison.”

Stupid Things People Do #1

Apparently a Seattle couple lived in a $1.2 million dollar home and collected federal aid from the Government.  Scam?  That’s what the government said.

The Wife apparently made false claims stating that she made less than $5,000 per year and lived with two children.  On top of that, she put the Husband as the Landlord.  Now, they didn’t have the same last names, so it took a while for them to be caught.

In the meantime, they’ve flown to Moscow, Paris, and Numerous other places over the period of 8 years.  What can we learn from this?  How about that no matter how you plan out your crime, you’re probably going to get caught.  Sooner or later, it’ll catch up to you.

Now, what’s really stupid about this?  They’re actually going to have to pay it back as well as thousands of dollars in fines.  So, it’s actually costing them money in the long run.

Just goes to show you that no matter how Rich or Wealthy you are, that Stupidity strikes everywhere.

Daily Fitness Goals

A few days ago, I’ve started to keep track of my Cardio progress.  Today is day 4 of the start.  Missed a day, so I had to make up for it by adding an extra minute to my Cardio routine.  What is my fitness goal/challenges?  To add one minute of Cardio to my routine.  In other words, on day one I started with 10 minutes.  Then add one minute to that the next day to get 11 minutes of Cardio.  The 11 minute mark is actually the one that I missed.  The reason I decided not to do it, was because I had did quite a bit of walking that day.  Still, no excuses.  Someone slap me.  Here’s an update on my progress.
