Smarter ladies have worse sex →
Anyone care to argue with the findings? Looking at some of the comments in the Digg article it was posted on, I have to agree with some of them. If women are busy trying to get ahead of men in life (careerwomen) then they do spend less time with the opposite sex and thus spend less time having sex. However, stupid women also tend to cheat(maybe because they’re more horny? think of sex more...

Most in the tech industry do not use this type of share, however, Google does. Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt use their share to...

Timebombs & Humanity's Lifespan
The complex global capitalist and free trade system is taking it’s toll on everyone especially the poor. This results in what “experts” would call timebombs. The rise in population, shift to biofuels and export bans all contribute to the most popular timebomb this year: food crisis. Second timebomb waiting to go off: US recession. While some argue that the US is already in a...

Hooray for Startups!

During the industrial revolution and after that which is the industrial age, people had to have few skills hence the quote: “Jack of all trades, master of none.” In other words, if you knew too many skills during the industrial era, you wouldn’t succeed. However, the...

The movie was fairly light considering it was very action-oriented. The fight sequences weren’t as heavy (just bruises on the actors) so it wasn’t that intense. The story is pretty much straightfoward, but the charisma of the actors...
