Food for Thought, and Everything Else.

My wife shared this piece with me. It’s one of the most peculiar things I’ll ever reshare. I trust you will find it as odd as I did. Enjoy:

It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish… all before making a human. He made and provided what we’d need before we were born. These are best and more powerful when eaten raw.

We’re such slow learners, but God left us great clues as to what foods help specific parts of our body.

God’s Pharmacy

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and yes, science has shown carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and the overall function of the eyes.

A tomato has four chambers and is red. The human heart has four chambers and is red. All research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Computers Will Think. Will They Rule Over Us?

Byron Reese:

According to Hans Moravec of the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University, by 2020 a $1,000 personal computer will have the raw processing power of a human brain.

… I am not a computer. I am self-aware. There is no evidence that awareness comes from processing power. Yet, this is always asserted by those who claim processing power is material. You are conscious, but you don’t know how. A colony of ants has an emergent intelligence. It is smarter than any individual ant. It is smarter than all the ants put together. You are made of cells which know nothing of you, don’t know they are part of you, and yet you are aware of them. Why do we think computers will be emergent? They are mechanistic in a way I do not think I am.

I’ve often wondered about this. Crickets think also, but that doesn’t make them an advanced alien race. I know my example is overly simplified, so I will leave Byron to figure this stuff out and explain it better. 

Leave the Umpires Alone, Please.

What the Braves manager thought he was doing versus what others around him saw:

“To this day, I still haven’t argued,” Gonzalez said. “I just asked for an explanation. I said, ‘Why would you think we’re throwing at people in a one-run game or that they are throwing at people in a one-run game?’ It’s not like it’s a 10-run game or something. I was talking to him like I’m talking to you right here and I got thrown out of the game.” »

I don’t understand why coaches feel the need to speak to umpires ever—especially when they are warned not to? Come on.

‘The Avengers’ Makes Biggest Opening Weekend of All Time

I don’t understand this. There’s something wrong here. What is it?

The film beat Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2’s existing record by more than $30 million, which when added to the current international gross, should bring the film’s overall take to around $575 million worldwide.

Needless to say, the higher ticket prices afforded by the film’s 3D format have gone some way to reeling in such an impressive take, but by anybody’s standards, Joss Whedon’s superhero blowout has been an immense success. »

Ticket costs must have been really inflated for the 3D effects. That, and the lead up to this film with origin stories must have had the audience baited. Even so, why didn’t Harry Potters’ seven films ahead of the climax/last movie installment serve its franchise better?
