Your iTunes movies, your Kindle books - they're not really yours. You don't own them. You've just bought a license that allows you to access them, one that can be revoked at any time. And while a handful of incidents have brought that reality into sharp relief over the years, none has quite the punch of Microsoft disappearing every single ebook from every one of its customers.

Believe it or not, eating pasta is bad for you. I know, right? Fortunately, it's been recently discovered that by cooling your pasta before consumption, the starches are modified to a state where they don't cause as much turbulence in your blood sugar, and the effect is even more pronounced if you re-heat the pasta again before consuming it. HERE COMES THE SCIENCE!

There are themed restaurants, and then there's Japan's Robot Restaurant, which will steam roll your brain with glow sticks, techno, and robots. Running counter to the Japanese cultural rubric usually shown, it's a space age Cirque de Soleil on acid or a cyber punk Moulin Rouge that gives a mind-blowing taste for bedazzled silliness and whimsical kitsch. Warning: if you suffer from epilepsy you won't make it past the foyer.

I'm not sure if I feel sorrow for transgenders or perhaps joy for them and their ability to express themselves these days.
How many centuries did these people have to live in the shadows? We can learn a lot from other cultures, if we only pay attention.
