TED 2008: How Good People Turn Evil, From Stanford to Abu Ghraib
Some extremely disturbing new pictures from Abu Ghraib that I wish I hadn't looked at, but a fascinating talk.

Blind Irishman sees with the aid of son's tooth in his eye - Yahoo! News
I think that this is possibly the oddest medical headline that I've seen, and that's saying something.
Medical student gives a speech to the families of those who have donated their bodies for study purposes
vitum medicinus ::: a life of medicine: This memorial service is unique in that it is so much more.
I can't count the number of people that I know who are organ donors, but refuse to check off the "give my body for study" box on their form as they think that all that medical students are going to do is play pranks with their bodies. I think that I'll save a copy of this speech.
This looks like a fascinating documentary. I'm always amazed at my daughters' memory skills...it's not unusual for either of them to come out with statements such as "Remember when we went to the park on August 18th, 1999 and met the little boy with the blue overalls and purple shirt? He was cool." It makes them rather difficult to deal with sometimes, as you definitely can't forget promises that you've made, or explanations that you've given!

The Craziness You've Heard People Say in Their Sleep:
"Apparently I talk in my sleep as well. According to my manager, and corroborated by my phone's outgoing call log, I attempted to call off work one morning because I didn't like the smell of peaches."
Some of these are great. Of course, my husband regularly tries to protect us from the Russian Revolutionaries who are apparently coming to sack our house, find recipes for cake for when the Queen comes over later that day, and insists that I write reports for a company that doesn't exist, so maybe I have a finer appreciation for them.
And my daughter just told me that when her asthma was bothering her the other night I told her to go and get her puffer from the gas station in the basement.
List Of The Day: Video Of The Day: Stoned 911 Call
And yes, obligatory rant about how they weren't charged because he was a police officer, but it's a pretty funny video :-)
