Some theaters have gross filthy seats and floors. You don't want to go in there with an open wound. The movie theaters will kill you!

On a sad note, did you hear about the second American journalist that was beheaded by ISIS?

I am not sure what the world is coming to.

A man went into a Menards located about 1 hour south of me last weekend and an overhead pallet fell on him. It had over 600 pounds of tile on it. He was rushed but later died of his injuries.

And there are false-positives and inconclusive results that lead to removing benign tissues, without properly educating the patient on the risks of complications. A big part of medicine is guesswork. Medicine is big business and informing you of your options is not their job - it's yours.

At age 85 my grandfather flat-out refused to take a stress test (running on a treadmill) because, well, he was 85! Good for him.

I distrust a few of the recommended preventive tests because the medical industry gives them to millions and millions of people for years, THEN determines that the risk of harm outweighs the benefits, in some cases.

Obviously each person's situation is unique and everybody knows somebody who had cancer or whatever illness...Again, this post is just to share my own odd/quirky concern about a thing that thousands (millions) of other people find perfectly normal and acceptable. My reasons may be preposterous, but that's ok.


Now this, I can certainly see. I had a procedure a couple years ago that I have to have a follow up each year to ensure there is no reoccurence, which costs me a couple/few thousand each year. Had they just dealt with the issue I came in for, they would not have ever identified that issue. It's a tough call, cause so many times they find something that does need addressed and many times it ends up saving lives, so this is not just black and white.

Intentional attempts to contact aliens (METI and SETI projects), because contact with any alien starship-having civilization may potentially/eventually result in our extermination. I mean, havenít they seen Starship Troopers, or Independence Day?

Even without the intentional efforts, there's a chance of unintentionally making contact due to the volume of radio and TV signals we are constantly transmitting everywhere, including off-world, and which can continue on for long distances into space. We have no way of knowing how any other world would react to our friendly videos of cartoon rabbits or smiley faces or beautiful trees or peace signs or red hearts, much less what they would make of our horror movies or war movies or alien invasion movies.

maybe an unintended consequence of the Kardashian's show and just overall news stories is that when aliens see that, they will stay away

How absurd. A tin foil hat would have little effect on the types of lasers the aliens in Independence Day were using! wink

This reminded me of the chapter on Baynes theorem and false-positives in Nate Silvers book. And the example using mammograms for women under 40:

A woman in her 40's has about a 1.4% chance of getting breast cancer.

If a woman does NOT have cancer, a mammogram will incorrectly say she does (false-positive) about 10% of the time. If she does have cancer it will detect it about 75% of the time.

Given those numbers, if a woman under 40 has a positive mammogram, what are the odds she actually has cancer?

Well, even with the positive mammogram, the odds are only about 10 percent.

Fave scene is Capt. Hiller punching the alien and then complaining as he drags it across the desert in his parachute. laugh

And to keep this on topic.... how about that movie with Mark Wahlberg where nature rebels and starts killing humans? Yeah. That could happen, right?
