Just Plug Me In

My weekend begins with a call from a friend in Lebanon who needs to get out and asked if I could help…..I will do what I can but I am too far away to be much help.

Enough of life…..

I recently watch an episode of Dr. Who about a guy that could plug his brain into a computer and get info that is needed.  I thought then how long before that in not fiction but reality?

I then read a post that seem to confirm what I was asking……

The U.S. military is disclosing a super soldier project, revealing to have allocated funding of $65 million dollars for a program to develop a ‘Brain-Computer Interface’ that would allow participants to plug into a computer like the movie The Matrix. No this isn’t science fiction Neo, this is the future that the MIC wants for its soldiers.

Earlier last year in January, DARPA launched Neural Engineering System Design to research technology that could turn soldiers into cyborgs.

The military wants to use these programs to “give soldiers supersenses and boost brainpower.” Four teams will be responsible for increasing vision and two on hearing and speech. The military adds that this will help develop “new treatments for patients with sensory disorders.”

I am still in the process of confirming this….but I do not doubt that the government would sink to this level….do you?

All this money being spent to make war “better”….and so little spent looking for a way to make it unnecessary….I guess it is all about priorities, huh?

My day is going well….now just waiting for the time that I can sit among the grape vines and have some wine and a bit of Brie and crackers……

Hope your day is as enjoyable and I will be back tomorrow…see ya….chuq

  1. Rainy and dull in Beetley today, not feeling like Summer at all.
    Enjoy your weekend, chuq.
    I almost forgot! Yes, They will undoubtedly try to develop super-brain soldiers for the military. Just because they can…
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Donald, send Donald, Jr, Eric and Jared to Afghanistan, as Private E-1’s–but out in the really boonies, carrying a 70-100 pound backpack, waving back to snipers first. The, we’ll talk!

    Oh, and Trumpie, have someone read “War” to you, by Sebastian Junger, so that you can get a flavor of what you are cheering-on!

  3. Off Topic — I have never tried Brie cheese. Are you supposed to cut the white rind off before eating it or can you eat the ring? What does good with the cheese as a food item …. I know wine goes with it … but what about other food? — How do you get around the ammonia-like odor?

    1. The rind is edible…..best served at room temp….fruit like grapes and tart apple go with it nicely…I have not had the odor but that could be if it is too old…..cannot help with the odor thingy sorry….chuq

      1. Thanks Chuq– I will go out to market and get some and try it today.
