You been watching tv lately? I think to make the female roles they asked some men "tell us how you dream you wish the woman really were in your world, realisticly how you would love them to be, not how they now are, but how is your fondest dream for women to be like"

Then they collect the answers and all hollywood decide to follow this formula!
Because all the skills and qualities the actress have, portray in make believe is just too incredibly fantastic would bring tears to mens eyes even if withness in real life just once!
I never see any normal woman that can match most all of these roles on tv for the women, even the bad evil women I not see anything that can match in real life!
I dont think if had 500 years women will come close to be like fantastic capable warmhearted couragous actress on the air every day on every channel each and every hour of American TV!

At least the men we can say is both the best and the worst of real life but woman..........haha, what a joke.

I mean of course mainly the realistic roles not the impossible roles like superman and supergirl.
Even the kids know that is bullshit.

But do the kids know that all those outrageous reallife roles they see of mothers and girlfreinds and wives and the qualities writers assign is false and only wishful thinking?
Im afraid not. So the little girls grow up with bloated heads out of touch with reality anf themselves, and the little boy grows up expecting too much from wife and children.

Oh and fuck you, who ever said only 10 people predict USA woes. I saw it with 5% of knowlege 2 to 11 had.

Here's a site with a cached copy of the now-gone Obama agenda for America.

It's way at the bottom of the site and are the only links that work.

Scientists to uncover the truth of out-of-body experiences

-snip-

Now - in the biggest study of its kind - scientists are to examine the near-death experiences of 1,500 hospital [heart attack] patients to see if out-of-body experiences are real or just a trick of the mind.

During the three-year investigation, doctors will place pictures on shelves high up in hospital rooms so that they can be seen only from above.

Barbie's bits become accessories

For about £110, admirers can buy pendants containing Barbie's sparkling eyes, bracelets made from her manicured hands or earrings fittingly crafted from her little plastic ears. Or how about a necklace made from her breasts...

Return of the Neanderthals: If we can resurrect them through fossil DNA, should we?

<snip>The full genome of the Neanderthal, an ancient human species probably driven to extinction by the first modern humans that entered Europe some 45,000 years ago, is expected to be recovered shortly. If the mammoth can be resurrected, the same would be technically possible for Neanderthals.<snip>

Potentially Universal Mechanism Of Aging Identified

Researchers have uncovered what may be a universal cause of aging, one that applies to both single cell organisms such as yeast and multicellular organisms, including mammals. This is the first time that such an evolutionarily conserved aging mechanism has been identified between such diverse organisms.

"It is remarkable that an aging mechanism found in yeast a decade ago, in which sirtuins redistribute with damage or aging, is also applicable to mammals," says Leonard Guarente, Novartis Professor of Biology at MIT, who is not an author on the paper. "This should lead to new approaches to protect cells against the ravages of aging by finding drugs that can stabilize this redistribution of sirtuins over time."

Both Sinclair and Oberdoerffer agree with Guarente's sentiment that these findings may have therapeutic relevance.

"According to this specific mechanism, while DNA damage exacerbates aging, the actual cause is not the DNA damage itself but the lack of gene regulation that results," says Oberdoerffer. "Lots of research has shown that this particular process of regulating gene activity, otherwise known as epigenetics, can be reversed—unlike actual mutations in DNA. We see here, through a proof-of-principal demonstration, that elements of aging can be reversed."

So instead of aging when people get older, humans can just get more mutated. That leaves lots of possibilities open for the offspring of humans that have been mutating for a few centuries.

The 'shadchan' resume

Since we're all being so forward-thinking here, I thought I'd suggest a bold new idea to make it even easier for singles to meet the perfect shadchan, that special shadchan God had in mind for them all along: the shadchan resume.

There are thousands of shadchanim out there and no one has more than a couple of minutes to spend on you. Just being frank. (see photo image)

Pollution threatens male gender, says CHEM Trust report.

The report, which draws on more than 250 scientific studies from around the world, concentrates mainly on wildlife, identifying effects in a range of species.

"Males of species from each of the main classes of vertebrate animals (including bony fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) have been affected by chemicals in the environment.

"Feminisation of the males of numerous vertebrate species is now a widespread occurrence. All vertebrates have similar sex hormone receptors, which have been conserved in evolution. Therefore, observations in one species may serve to highlight pollution issues of concern for other vertebrates, including humans," the report concludes.

Check this out, this is from an article in SciAm Mind "Sparking Recovery With Brain "Pacemakers"" by Morten L. Kringelback and Tipu Z. Aziz in the December 2008/January 2009 issue of Scientific American Mind

http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=spa ... pacemakers



These researchers implanted electrodes deep within the brains of patients suffering Parkinson's, Dystonia and Phantom Limb pain. The results are very promising. Check out the video demonstrations here

http://kringelbach.dk/nrn/



"Established Sites" include Motor thalamus, globus pallidus internal segment, subthalamic nucleus, pedunculopontine nucleus, lateral hypothalamus, anterior limb of the internal capsule, perventricular gray/periaqueductal gray and sensory thalamus.

Man charged over viral baby-swinging video

A Queensland man has been charged for re-publishing on a video-sharing site a viral video of a man swinging a baby around like a rag doll.

The controversial three-minute video had already been published widely across the internet and shown on American TV news shows. The clip can still be found online today.

Chris Illingworth, 60, a father of four from Maroochydore, thought he would share it with fellow users of Liveleak, a site similar to YouTube but focused on news and current events. In two years, he has uploaded hundreds of videos to Liveleak.

His home was raided on Sunday, November 30, by Queensland Police from Task Force Argos, which specialises in combating child pornography and child groomers.

He was charged with using the internet to access and publish child-abuse material and is scheduled to appear in court in Maroochydore on December 18.

It is understood that he had no involvement in the creation of the video, which cannot be published on this website for legal reasons.

The baby is laughing and smiling at the end of the clip, but the video has attracted criticism from child-welfare advocates because of how vigorously the man swings the baby by its arms.<snip>[/url]

'Simpsons' sex toon is child porn: Judge

An internet cartoon showing characters modelled on Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson engaging in sex acts, is child pornography, a judge has ruled in a landmark case.

In February at Sydney's Parramatta Local Court, Alan John McEwen was convicted of possessing child pornography and using his computer to access such material.

He was fined $3,000 and required to enter a two-year good behaviour bond in relation to each offence.

McEwen appealed against the conviction, but it was dismissed in the NSW Supreme Court on Monday, with Justice Michael Adams concluding a fictional cartoon character is a "person" within the meaning of Commonwealth and NSW laws.<snip>
