1/26/06 Buddha on the Brain

As promised, here is the article about the Dalai Lama and his speech titled "The Neuroscience of Meditation." I was surprised to learn that the Dalai Lama is a big fan of science. And some scientists, in turn, are fascinated with the Dalai Lama. East meets West?

In an experiment with 2 meditating groups - Buddhist monks and a control group of college students, "The monks produced gamma waves that were 30 times as strong as the students'. In addition, larger areas of the meditators' brains were active, particularly in the left prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for positive emotions."

British scientists claim that liquorice is good for teeth. Yes. Of course they would.

I keep reading that Kevin Federline (K-Fed) is a douchebag and a no talent ass clown. I know very little about him, so it's really unfair to pass along that judgment without some evidence. So here - Judge for yourself.

Here's a list of 176 movie sequels that are preliminarily (did I just make up that word?) in the works. Some of the ones that caught my attention were:
  • Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?
  • Police Academy 8
  • Goonies 2
  • Death Race 3000
