Runs through it’s history in a pretty balanced manner. Interviews with Albert Hoffman, Lord Christopher Mayhew, Ken Kesey and participants in early studies. Called “LSD – The Beyond Within ” I’m not sure what year it was filmed, looks like the 1970s.

Airtroductions wants to make your next flight more interesting by allowing you to choose the person who sits next to you. Build a profile, enter your itinerary, match, and sit with them on your next flight.
A little creepy for the 3rd member of the row if the other two are on a date. It might however be nice to ensure you are sitting between two petite women instead of 300 pound men. I’m interested to see if there’s a ‘mile high club’ checkbox on the profile form.
On startup the Wii is organized into a set of ‘channels’ to choose from, just activated was the forecast channel. It includes the standard 5-day forecast, UV index, highs and lows. The real treat is a globe that you can grab and spin, which works much like Google Maps.
Madden football will use the channel for real time weather conditions for games. I imagine other tie-ins are too come.
Now you can actually give your number to any creep. You also don’t have to worry about assholes like Michael Crook posting your personal info online.
A horrible idea for many reasons. Forgot something, you have to do the whole ride over again, or more likely, leave without it. Only want to grab a few things? You still have to ride through the entire store. Can you stop the cart? How do you reach things on the upper levels of the shelves?
If you want to try it out, looks like you’ll have to visit Shenyang, China.
These scandavian “escapees from the bathroom” are on a “journey filled with new adventures.” Not sure they need much of a backstory.

You’ve probably heard the story about the world’s tallest man saving the dolphin by digging in it’s stomach, but believe it or not, it’s been done before!
from a veterinarian acquaintance:
“Been there done that-over 20 years ago. I used to work at a place in CA near SF called Marineworld. One of our dolphins swallowed a long metal bolt after a workman accidentally dropped it into their pool. We called up the Warriors NBA team and their center, Clifford Ray (who remembers him?) came down and stuck his long arm down the dolphin’s throat and pulled out the bolt. And as a bonus he started dating our PR lady-you go Cliff !!”
update: while searching for an image, I found this story covered on deadspin a year ago!
