How to knock out your children: Use PediSedate.

PediSedate is a medical device consisting of a colorful, toy-like headset that connects to a game component such as the Nintendo Game Boy system or a portable CD player. Once the child places it on his or her head and swings the snorkel down from its resting place atop the head, PediSedate transparently monitors respiratory function and distributes nitrous oxide, an anesthetic gas. The child comfortably becomes sedated while playing with a Nintendo Game Boy system or listening to music. This dramatically improves the hospital or dental experience for the child, parents and healthcare providers.

Giant blob found deep beneath Nevada

Hidden beneath the U.S. West’s Great Basin, scientists have spied a giant blob of rocky material dripping like honey.

The Great Basin consists of small mountain ranges separated by valleys and includes most of Nevada, the western half of Utah and portions of other nearby states.

While studying the area, John West of Arizona State University and his colleagues found evidence of a large cylindrical blob of cold material far below the surface of central Nevada. Comparison of the results with CAT scans of the inside of Earth taken by ASU’s Jeff Roth suggested they had found a so-called lithospheric drip. …

Zombie Preparedness Initiative!

The Zombie Preparedness Initiative is a knowledge base provided by a community of citizens concerned about the impending zombie invasion and the imminent disaster that is sure to follow. We are not claiming to be experts on anything, we are merely doing what we can to gather knowledge and share the acquired information with the public. By doing this, we hope to help people prepare for the very real threat that we shall face when zombies show up and governments have not taken the time to prepare.

    If we’re lucky the giant blob will eat the zombies. Oh, the blob isn’t alive? Never mind…

    More like dramatically improves the wallets of the providers. My son had to have a tooth extracted. They made a big deal about the nitrous and we went along with it. Turns out it’s not covered by insurance and costs $100 for what they said was going to be 5 minutes of it at the beginning.

    When we brought him back to have a filling done, they pushed the nitrous hard. We refused. We had explained to our 6 year-old exactly what was going to be done, made the dentist show him the tools and explain how they worked and helped him through his anxiety. Turns out, they didn’t even give him a shot of novacaine. There was absolutely no pain and he came through like a champ. I have heard from friends of other dentists offices that refuse to work on kids unless nitrous is administered and that they don’t allow parents to come back with them.

    I certainly understand that some people have a great deal of anxiety going to dentists and that nitrous can be a help. I also know that the plural of ‘anecdote’ is not ‘data’, but in my experience, it’s turned into a method for dentists to make a quick buck right off the top without going through insurance.

    Now, the zombie thing, there’s a worthwhile cause if I ever saw one. I just started Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. There’s no excuse not to be ready for the zombie invasion.

    Neither are the zombies, though. Think about it: they’re both underground, neither is alive, we haven’t seen either around recently …

    Eeeeeep! That blob is the zombies!
