Yeah, it's gotten that bad. Five members of the GOP wouldn't even go watch a special screening of Lincoln in the White House.

We may be heading toward an antibiotic apocalypse.


Imagine a world where a scratch would strike terror into your soul. A place where giving birth is a life-and-death experience, where every sore throat and stomach upset is potentially lethal. A world where almost no surgeon will operate unless the only alternative is certain death, and where chemotherapy is too deadly to contemplate. This could be our awful future, according to Professor Dame Sally Davies, the Government’s chief medical officer. She has warned that the world faces an antibiotic apocalypse, a “ticking time bomb”, and a “catastrophic threat to the population” as medicine faces the prospect of losing probably the most powerful weapon in its armoury – the effective antibiotic.

The tragedy is that this is a disaster of our own making. Thanks to a combination of profligacy, wilful stupidity, the laziness of thousands of doctors, and the selfish persistence of millions of patients in demanding instant cures for minor illnesses that would go away on their own, simple bacterial infections could once again become the scourge of humanity.





A new study reveals what Facebook likes are telling people and marketers about us.


The study found that Facebook likes were linked to sexual orientation, gender, age, ethnicity, IQ, religion, politics and cigarette, drug, or alcohol use. The likes also mapped to relationship status, number of Facebook friends, as well as half a dozen different personality traits.

Some likes were more revealing than others. Researchers could correctly distinguish between users who identified themselves as black or white 95 percent of the time. That success rate dropped to a still impressive 88 percent when trying to guess whether a male user was homosexual, and to 85 percent when telling Democrats from Republicans. Identifying drug users was far trickier – researchers got that right only 65 percent of the time, a result scientists generally describe as poor. Predicting whether a user was respectively a child of divorce was even dicier. With a 60 percent success rate, researchers were doing just slightly better than random guesses.
