1. I enjoyed the movie -- not for the ending, but some of the other scenes. They also had a good online presence ahead of the release with additional plot material.

2. Before you die, Jarrett, you'll see the Ring!! =8^0

Norwegian Skydiver Almost Gets Hit by Falling Meteor — and Captures it on Film

It sounds like a remarkable story, almost unbelievable: Anders Helstrup went skydiving nearly two years ago near Hedmark, Norway and while he didn’t realize it at the time, when he reviewed the footage taken by two cameras fixed to his helmet during the dive, he saw a rock plummet past him. He took it to experts and they realized he had captured a meteorite falling during its “dark flight” — when it has been slowed by atmospheric braking, and has cooled and is no longer luminous.

+Anders Helstrup, the reason it wouldn't qualify is because the individual the event happened to has to be the submitter. So while I can't submit the story, you could.  :)

Predictive "psychohistory"? The feds and Euros etc want Hari Seldon's powers. Also can the economy keep growing? Plus energy, climate and medicine. A science potpourri on CONTRARY BRIN.

Contrary Brin,

There is a real life recapitaluation of Asimov's Foundation Hexalogy under right now on Earth:  by "Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.]".

They have derived a set of seven 'Psychohistorical-Dialectical Equations", using the "contra-Boolean Algebra" that their founder discovered, and axiomatized. --

http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Aoristoss_Blog/Entries/2012/5/19_The_F.E.D._Psychohistorical_Equations.html

However, although it is clear that they support and intend the use of statistics and probability theory, their initial version of "the psychohistorical equations" are rooted in a different approach than mere statistics and probability theory.

Their initial equations are aimed at establishing a generalized, deterministic, necessary order-of-appearance, or order-of-progression, of "socio-ontology", an undergirding, causal "chain of socio-historical phenomena", around which "Bayesian Probability", Regression Equations, etc. can supply detailed, quantitative specifics.

For more about this, see --

M.D.

Check out the latest editorial by +Barbara Drescher. She really does a nice job clearing up the Monty Hall problem and explaining why it confuses us so.

Crap. To think I drove all the way to St. Louis to go to White Castle. Wish I knew this place existed.
