Dews Tuesday Rundown...


Rumors of our deaths were greatly exagerated...

Having just gotten back from Vegas, SayHey and I are still recovering, while the good doctor Jack Gonzo is still en route. Needless to say, that has caused poor Dewey to try to carry the burden of updates without much help (MoDews and Steve, I'm looking at you!), but that should slowly change now that we're back, and relatively healthy.

That being said, there shall be a few pictures of our adventures slowly, provided there aren't any identifiable markings in them :). Some of us are still entertaining a future in politics afterall.

Anyway, lets get to the news:

Leading off is a story that is near and dear to me, as it will save my life one day. I prefer to call it a technology that will enhance the safety of dating (for me mostly I think, long story though), but others call it frivolous "Internet Gene Testing"...

The tests, which biotechnology companies will begin selling in a few months, will
allow people to find out, by sending off a spittle sample, if they possess gene
variants that increase their chances of suffering bipolar depression or
schizophrenia. The information will help both patients and doctors, it is

I cannot tell you how excited I am for this technology... Being able to know almost immediately whether the person you are going out with is pre-disposed of schizophrenia or bi-polar disorder is quite the advantage in the dating world!


Keeping with the medical wonders theme, scientists have discovered a new way to kill viruses... Shake them to death!

New research mathematically determined the frequencies at which simple viruses could be shaken to death.
"The capsid of a virus is something like the shell of a turtle," said physicist Otto Sankey of Arizona State University. "If the shell can be compromised [by Mechanical vibrations], the virus can be inactivated."

Truly some weird and wacky stuff if we can effectively harness this new method for fighting outbreaks.


And finally, Britany Spears and Michael Jackson have been shown to be decent parents (at least) given just how strong toddlers apparently are!

A German photographer caught the heart-stopping moment when a father decided there was no other way to save his 2-year-old son from a blazing apartment fire
than to drop him out of fourth-story window.
Really, if toddlers are so damn strong and apparently adept at surviving a dive out of a 4th story window, doesn't that just kinda prove that they can survive living with Mr. Jackson and Ms. Spears?

That is all...

I dont think bio-dating will help ya out much. Whats to say someone could spit on someone elses "spit sample"? Kinda like a piss test if ya ask me.

Also, define "alive", I feel dead from the neck up right now

Dews said...

hey man, its worth a shot...

yea, I'm still pretty brain dead, and coughing like crazy, but doing my damnedest to look busy!

Dewey, Cheatem, & Howe said...

I'm for badges that one must wear out to the bar. Each badge will contain a photo of you at your worst. Inside each badge will be a chip which can be scanned by a cell phone or something. When scanned, the chip will give up all relevant dating information, such as whether you are nuts, kinky, depressive, fun, etc based on reviews from previous partners. All of the reviews will be screened so that they are true and based on good information.

I think we have a billion-dollar dating idea on our hands if we could just get this together.

Dews said...


I think you've got a great idea there man. We would need a lot of user feedback, maybe we could interface with Facebook to make that a little easier?

SayHey Kid said...

Very interesting stuff here.......If only we could find a multi-billion dollar investor???

Of course the VT folk will be our guinea pigs right?

Dews said...

don't think there is much demand for such a service in vermont, having seen the quality of women there myself (why did I move south, Oh yea!!).

I think DC would be a much better proving ground for this one

Dewey, Cheatem, & Howe said...

Yeah, of course we could tie in with a social networking site...or create our own :)

SayHey Kid said...

Why not just legalize prostitution?? Hell, the attractive women flock there and it creates jobs. Why not to DC??


Dews said...

because we couldn't control prostitution, this has a potential to be a money maker for us, thus we make money :)

Far better then wasting time and effort to legalize prostitution when we won't gain from it monetarily.

SayHey Kid said...

Then its decided....We become pimps!!
