But the major breakthroughs have come from a handful of insights that completely rocked my world and redefined reality forever. The world now seems to be a completely different one than the one I lived in about ten years ago, when I started looking into the mechanics of quality of life. Maybe you’ve had some of the same insights. 1. The first time I heard somebody say that — in the opening chapter of The Power of Now — I didn’t like the sound of it one bit. I see quite clearly now that life is nothing but passing experiences, and my thoughts are just one more category of things I experience. If you can observe your thoughts just like you can observe other objects, who’s doing the observing? 2. Of course! 3. 4. 5. Yikes. 6. This discovery was a complete 180 from my old understanding of emotions. 7.

How to Use the Undocumented Operator AROUND to improve Google Searches
The key to successful searches with Google or any other search engine is knowing how to narrow down the results to something manageable. Searches typically can show thousands or even millions of hits and useful references are often buried far down the list where they will never be seen. One way that I have found to help find more relevant results is to use an undocumented operator in Google searches. When you want to use two search terms that you know appear close but not necessarily adjacent to one another, try the AROUND(n) operator. pizza AROUND(2) restaurant will return pages with pizza and restaurant separated by two or fewer words. This type of search can be useful in a number of common cases. John AROUND(1) Somebody Another use is to search for titles or phrases where you know several of the words but are not sure of the exact wording of the entire phrase. Google will still try to be “helpful” and turn up a lot of searches that don’t fit the search criteria. pizza near:2 restaurant
The lampshade that drives its owners mad: Strange truth behind 20th century's most disturbing object - Europe, World
When you run your finger around the edges of a small square that a DNA analyst cut out of one of the panels, you notice the surprising thinness of the taut covering. Leave anybody to examine this object for long enough and I think they would experience two reactions: a slow but mounting repulsion of the kind that occurs instantaneously when you see a rat, and an impulse to ask: "What is this thing made of?" Before I handled it, I'd been sceptical of the psychological impact this lampshade is supposed to have had on people. Its last owner was troubled by dreams so grotesque that he felt compelled to get it out of his house. His nightmares continued. The lampshade's current proprietor, the American author Mark Jacobson, won't keep it in his home and says that, even now that it's here, safely in storage, he feels more at ease when he knows the shade is shut away in its white cardboard box. "What do you think?" "I don't think I need to see the DNA test," I tell him. Another told him not to.
Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo
The sentence's meaning becomes clearer when it's understood that it uses three meanings of the word buffalo: the city of Buffalo, New York, the somewhat uncommon verb "to buffalo" (meaning "to bully or intimidate"), as well as the animal buffalo. When the punctuation and grammar are expanded, the sentence could read as follows: "Buffalo buffalo that Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo." The meaning becomes even clearer when synonyms are used: "Buffalo bison that other Buffalo bison bully, themselves bully Buffalo bison." Sentence construction Bison engaged in a contest of dominance. This sentence supposes they have a history of such bullying with other buffalo, and they are from upstate New York. A comic explaining the concept The sentence is unpunctuated and uses three different readings of the word "buffalo". Marking each "buffalo" with its use as shown above gives: Buffaloa buffalon Buffaloa buffalon buffalov buffalov Buffaloa buffalon. Usage Other words using the same pattern

You Ain't No Picasso
This year was kind of a bum year for music. Nothing thrilled me like it had for the past four years and few new bands really stuck out. In fact, it was kind of an off year for tours as well. But in the midst of all that, I had one of the best concert years of my entire life. Sure, 2006 had my first experience with Radiohead and Sigur Ros and 2007 had the White Stripes and the Flaming Lips, but this was the year that I experienced shows I never thought I would see. #30: The Whigs @ the Dame [ Original Post ] I saw the Whigs twice in 2008, but their show at the Dame — the first time I’d seen them — was the best. #29: We Are Scientists @ the Southgate House [ Original Post ] I thought We Are Scientists’ Brain Thrust Mastery was an OK album, but they really one-upped their live show in 2008. #28: Andrew Bird @ Memorial Hall [MusicNOW] [ Original Post ] Maybe one of my least favorite times I’ve seen Andrew Bird, but still good enough to crack the list. #25: Islands @ the Mohawk [Hot Freaks!
