Brain Size In Premature Infants Significantly Smaller Than Full-Term Babies… isn’t that a well-known fact? The braincase of humans is so large at full development that females would have to be structured very differently to give birth. Instead, the brain and braincase increase in size after birth. Of course the brain is going to be one of the last things to fully develop, and thus premature babies will have smaller brains.

I guess it is working. My more frequent users should get a personalized message where “This sentence is false.” used to reside. If you want your own personal message, email me! If you need anything web based, email me. If you need anything computer related, email me. Being a whore, looking for work. Oh yeah, need a website or website design, email me. I can do more than just steal designs. ::grin::

I have now received over 8 pieces of graduation propaganda. I guess once you have 100 credits, they decide that you are going to graduate this year, if not this semester. Sorry to disappoint the university, but I will probably be here until Winter 2003.

The world, and especially the US, is going to encounter an energy shortage in the next 30 years. The oil supply is steady now, but it is estimated that with our current rate of extraction, that supply will be nil in 25 years. Coal reserves can stretch out for 5 years beyond that, and then our fossil fuels are gone. As of 1998, 89% of the energy of the world was produced from fossil fuels. Alternative energy sources are less efficient, such as nuclear energy. Future energy sources need to be developed. Fusion would be an excellent development, since power output is almost 10 times the power input. The US has completely stepped out of the research and development of fusion power, hoping that Russia/Japan/Canada will develop the technology and license it to the world.

With a headline like Scientists Learn To Program Human Dreams, you would think this was a great accomplishment. Instead, they had people play Tetris for like 3 days straight, and 60% of the people ended up having a dream about Tetris. Try again, science-folks.
