The reason behind those stern looks of the Victorian era have finally been explained. Check out this awesome history of photography I love history. I especially love the seedy side of history. Humans are such clever, manipulative and ‘noir’ creatures. Are some of us still living out the primitive, survival of the fittest scenarios? Check out the 10 greatest heists in history. Whether some part of you wants to be stealthy & sleuth like James Bond, or you just appreciate great tech, here are some super cool 2GB USB cuff links. I want!


Conservatives Swoon

The great thing about CSPAN is how they set up cameras & let things roll. This is from a prayer breakfast last Thursday. It’s a minor surprise with Obama there, since he didnt attend in ’09 & only formally acknowledged it then. Dr. Ben Carson is a surgeon with no political ties or force behind him. He has definitely not been spoon-fed to us. During this lecture he gets into his personal beliefs, regardless of the president’s appearance. He tears into political correctness. He tears into the national debt, thank G*d! Obama needs to be beat over the head with this. He also highlights his impoverished background and mentions the importance of book reading over tv watching; that’s when I … Read More

Health Hucksters

The links i wanted to share for your weekend reading take more serious consideration, if you take your health seriously. Just like i’ve mentioned in a recent post ‘selling you the poison and the remedy’, in a similar vein the majority of food producers own the name brand and the off-brand, thus the money is still being funneled into that one corporation regardless of which you buy.

All sorts of integrity has been lost in those quality items. Things have … Read More

Unfortunately it doesn’t delve into the serious consequences the country faces as a result of this type of teaching behavior in universities. Just the title of this exhibit? event? experience? Sell Them the Poison and The Remedy Prime example in irony, go to one of the most opulent, glamorous and thriving busy malls, in order to actually spend time in the Silence Room. My brain starts veering into the similarities of how the health and ‘wellness’ industry is based off this theme; the prescription drug business … Read More

Total Recall or No Recall

BrockaHealth & Wellness, PoliticsLeave a Comment

I’ve read hundreds of books in my life and at least 3 a month currently, so there’s no way in hell i could remember every single date, fact, or story theme. I’ve always supposed my brain kind of makes room for new stuff as i go and filters out what isn’t pertinent; and i only ever really retain what im most interested in anyway. As for what we experience in our lives too, we only remember things happening in a certain way or not at all. The members of my family jokingly call this ‘selective memory’. My mother rarely recalls bad things. I consider it an optimistic trait and a great survival mechanism for staying positive about life.  ‘Total recall, … Read More
