Gazing at the ravishing photos of Andrej Pejic, I’m stirred with envious confusion. Why does this tall skinny XY like me get to be so much prettier? Does his effeminate success - inflaming catwalks in both men and women’s high fashion - predict a fusion of two polarized genders, or a third construct? What does the androgynous Bosnian represent in post-genderism?
Brain to computer interfaces that can actually tell you what people are thinking. The brain detail is said to be “amazing” today and is rapidly growing to understand how the brain functions. They can now tell from brain signals if one moves a hand to the left or to right, etc. The team says they have no clue how far this technology will go, only the future will tell.

The mass murder of 20 children and six adults Friday in Newtown, Conn., has provoked yet another round of recrimination, finger pointing and breast-beating. Was the shooter mentally deranged?
