Scientists have learned how to control cockroaches wirelessly. Maybe now they can keep them from going in my mouth at night when I'm sleeping? :twisted:

OK! So much for outrunning the robots during the robot apocalypse. The guy can run up to 28 MPH. What are these scientists thinking?!?

How would you like to be walking along and see this thing come crashing out of the woods? Probably hear it first.

Just cuz scientists can do something, should they? I just read again today that they have figured out how to implant memories in brains. I still think the story is a promo for the new Total Recall movie.

Actualy I don't buy it. I think the human brain is far too complex for anyone to be able to "inplant" memories or anything else. If it was, schools would be obsolete. You could simply implant everything from K through graduates degree at infancy. No need for teachers, tuition, class rooms, or anything else.

Sounds too good to be true? It is.

That's a good point, Mike. I would add that there is a difference between knowledge and wisdom. If you could implant anything, it would be knowledge. Wisdom, however, is learned only through experience, I think.

I agree with that Murf, Some people are book-smart, some are street-smart, and then there are the lucky folks who are both. Mike, I do believe that someday mankind will discover the secrets of the brain. It may take thousands of years? Actually, I'm a little surprised we are unraveling it as fast as we are.

There's no doubt that we are learning more and more about everything, including the brain, but I think we are a very long way from being able to inplant memories or knowledge into anyone. Besides, Murf also makes a point. No matter how much you might know, wisdom still has to be learned. Even if you could inplant all the knowledge of man kind into a human brain, the wisdom as to how the individual will use that knowledge would still have to be learned through experience.

Bah! Anyone can do that easily! Remember the time we fought zombies in my bathtub dressed as clowns, Nevermore?

Was that before or after we filed down the teeth of all the vampires in Timbuktu? I still have my tutu from that one.

I think it was before we fed Dracula to Abraham Lincoln. Why did we dress the way we did? I'll regret the pigtails for the rest of my life.
