'Why do girls smell good?' and 'Sleep is sooo overrated'.

So it’s been a while since I’ve written a personal blog entry, so I figured I might as well let everyone know what’s up. We had a roommate move out and now officially have a ‘girl’ living with us. Don’t worry, it’s my roommate’s girlfriend – so it’s not just a random person. Yep, two dudes and a chick. Frankly, I had no idea what to expect, but it’s been great. I have noticed one ‘phenomenon’ about girls that I’ve yet to understand. Why is it that women seem to carry with them this ‘Bath and Body’ works ‘fresh scent girl aroma’ no matter wherever they live. I really don’t understand it. My girlfriends’ room always had the ‘girl’ smell – and now our house has a ‘hint’ of ‘girl’. Whatever – I guess it’s better than smelling like ‘sweaty dudes’.

Anyways, aside from the ‘smell’ changes and the roommate situation going on in the house – life has been busy, but a ‘healthy’ dose of busy. I can never seem to get everything done that I’d like to in a given day. I really wish I never had to sleep. I hate it. Sleep is a waste of time, and I really wish my body didn’t need it. I know that might be weird to some people, but to me it just seems to get in the way of life. I guess until there is a drug that allows you to sleep for minimal amount of hours at night – I’ll have to make due. Whatever.

Soon, your electricity may even be 'wireless'.

How many power cords does it take for Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers to make a light bulb glow? None. They've come up with a way to make a 60-watt bulb glow by sending energy wirelessly from a device across the room.

The breakthrough was published in the online version of the journal Science. The scientists have dubbed their finding WiTricity. It's not a new concept, but scientists had dismissed wireless juice as inefficient because energy generated by charging devices radiates in all directions.

Researchers used specially tuned waves that radiate less to send the energy. The key is to get the recharging device and the gadget that needs power on the same frequency, similar to how a radio picks up only one station at a time. » Article here

Best beach in America... in North Carolina?

'Doctor Beach' must have a pretty tough job. He ranks the nation's best beaches and is now out with his 2007 list. This year's best beach isn't in Florida or Hawaii. It's North Carolina's Ocracoke Island, part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Power outage leaves roller coaster riders upside down

A dozen riders on a roller coaster spent half an hour hanging upside down — 150 feet above the ground — after a power outage shut down the attraction.

It took about 30 minutes for the city Fire Department to rescue the riders using a ladder truck Saturday evening, said Aundrea Crary, spokeswoman for the Springs & Crystal Falls amusement park.

Spectators cheered when the riders were brought to the ground from the highest point of a loop on the X-Coaster, but one passenger threw up after reaching safety. One X-Coaster passenger, Jay Plummer, 37, was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Medical Center in Hot Springs after complaining of neck pain and a headache. The X-Coaster was one of several rides brought to a halt by the outage that originated somewhere near the park. » Article here

8-year-old charged for 'truth or dare' game with babysitter

A mother is upset after a 14-year-old babysitter engaged in sexual conduct with her eight-year-old boy, and the eight-year-old was charged with lewd conduct.

Prosecutors have since dropped the charges against the boy, but his mother is still concerned. The sexual conduct occurred during a game of “truth or dare” while the boy was being watched by the babysitter.

Prosecutors say that, while the babysitter initiated the contact, the young boy was a willing participant. “She dared my son to touch her breasts,” says Michelle Grosbeck, the boy’s mother.

After hiring the teenager to baby sit, Grosbeck got the feeling something was wrong. “It was just that sense that something wasn’t quite right with this 14-year-old girl,” she said. She asked her son what had happened. “He just came right out as if nothing was awry, and just started talking about what had happened.” » Full article here

Teen dies from applying to much 'icy hot' to legs

A medical examiner blamed a 17-year-old track star's death on the use of too much muscle cream, the kind used to soothe aching legs after exercise.

Arielle Newman, a cross-country runner at Notre Dame Academy on Staten Island, died after her body absorbed high levels of methyl salicylate, an anti-inflammatory found in sports creams such as Bengay and Icy Hot, the New York City medical examiner said Friday.

The medical examiner's spokeswoman, Ellen Borakove, said the teen used "topical medication to excess." She had gone to a party the night before, then returned home and spent hours talking with her mother.

Methyl salicylate poisoning is unusual, and deaths from high levels of the chemical are rare. "She either lathered herself with it, or used way too much, or she used a normal amount and an abnormal percentage was absorbed into her body," he said. » Article here
