Is Our Seniors Learning?

Apparently not:

In Pittsburgh, “Nursebot” (a robot which took on male and female personalities of Earl and Pearl depending on the gender of the voice used at the time) was tried out with elderly patients. Despite the stereotype of older people being technology phobic, the patients accepted the robots.

NOOOO!!! Don’t do it! It’s a trap!!!

Have you forgotten this already?

Or this?
It’s a tragedy waiting to happen, mark my words.

Headline Of The Week

Satan Feels Pressure to Score

(That’s the front-page headline; the actual article headline is a bit less… provocative)

Hard to put my finger on my favorite part of the story itself, but it’s probably the part where the coach gives Satan a pep talk.

And let me just reiterate my wish for Satan to get traded across the river, because just one “Satan Leads Devils to Victory” headline would make my decade.

Blind Item Of The Week

From the NY Daily News’ Gatecrasher column:

Which small-screen star – who doesn’t get out much – engages a dominatrix in a Manhattan “dungeon” to stand on his groin in a parka and repeat in a loud whisper, “We’re on the top of a mountain, no one can hear us …”

Wow. Now that’s a fetish!
