I just had an idea to solve the healthcare crisis. We can eliminate any mind-numbing, elaborately-awful reality shows like this one; take the salaries that are promised to these no-talent hosts and create a healthcare system. This is the beginning of the end for humanity. (via)

The only way this would be sweeter is if they will take my busted-Chrysler back because I made the mistake of buying one… (Via) I will use this opportunity to explain that I bought a Chrysler and the transmission fell out of it at 30K miles and I am still bitter. They built a crappy product and refuse to this day to make it right. Fiat made a mistake with their purchase, just like I did. Too bad Ginsburg didn't block the sale, Fiat will be sorry in about 3 months. Mark my words…

Article outlining creative problem solving and the benefits of dreaming (Via) I find this stuff fascinating! I have tried this and have found success. You have to write the details down right as you remember them; otherwise you are likely to forget. If you have a troubling problem, just ask yourself to solve it in your sleep. When you dream (given that you can remember your dreams) your subconscious will work out the problem. Some interpretation required.

The 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2010 (Via) Their words not mine. I have been disappointed with Hollywood lately. They seem to be running out of ideas; remakes are at an all time high. I did just see The Brother's Bloom and was mildly impressed. It was a little whimsical for me, but I like the crime element.

Is Twitter Really That Big? (Via) I think that a lot of the recent media hype about Twitter might be overblown. I find Twitter to be very annoying anyway. I think 160 characters are ruining communication; just look at texting. I read a story about how high school kids are using text message abbreviations in their English papers. See above article on the downfall of civilization.
