Someone is selling EVERY issue of WIRED magazine starting with issue 1.1 from 1993 all the way up to the current issue 13.6. I love WIRED magazine and I myself have every issue but starting from 1996 so I would love to get a hold of the first 3 years of WIRED. [Link]

Pest Control Gone Wrong

Posted by Mark

bug stopOver the weekend I was at True Values and I found this huge gallon of pest control spray. It was a good brand (Spectracide) and was selling for only KD5 and offered 6 months of protection against any kind of bug. So I bought it but when I got home I started to read the warning label and this thing is scary. If I drop some of the liquid on my skin I need to wash the area for 20 minutes and then call the poison center. So I decided to wear gloves while I am using it. I don’t know how, maybe because I am extremely clumsy but I ended up spilling a lot of the liquid on my hardwood floor. Then I tried to wipe it up and now I think I have this liquid all over my hands. How am I supposed to clean up a toxic spill?!?! This thing is crazy, I have been sneezing like hell, my fingers have a tingly sensation going on, my arm it a bit itchy, and my gloves are soaked with this liquid. I should have just purchased Raid…

WWDC 2005

Posted by Mark

Tomorrow is the World Wide Developer Conference and Steve Jobs will be giving his famous Keynote. Usually the days leading up to the event are filled with rumors on what Apple might be releasing or upgrading etc.. This time though its been very strangely quiet. I couldn’t find a single reliable rumor of anything anywhere. Very strange.. I did find a cool cartoon though at Joy of Tech. Most of you might not get it but Steve Jobs always wears the same clothes during his keynotes, black turtle neck and blue jeans. Here is the cartoon.

Is it dangerous to hold in a sneeze?

Posted by Mark

I hold 90% of my sneezes but people keep telling me its not good to do so. So I decided to do a quick search on this issue and it turns out holding a sneeze doesn’t inflict physical internal damage. The worse that could happen is I would get an infection.

“Have you ever tried to hold in a sneeze? Here’s why you shouldn’t: A sneeze is your nose’s way of keeping things like dust, pollen and bacteria from being inhaled. These are given the boot by being forced out of your nose at terrific speeds — over 100 mph. If you try to prevent a sneeze by pinching your nose closed or holding your breath, you’re creating tremendous pressure. That pressure can force bacteria from your nose back into your sinus cavities or your ears — and the result could aggravate an underlying infection.”

Update: Tawateeto just commented the following: hey my dads a doctor, i asked him and he said these effects r very rare, the infection is very rare and comes after a very long time, but he says holding it in can bother u for the same reason u wrote, some ppl also think if u open ur eyes while sneezing ur eyes pop out, but thats total crap they just shift in position and u can actually never manage to open ur eyes while sneezing unless ur holding them open its a very strong natural reflex

This cool link will take you to an editorial which gives you some tips when dealing with an artist. For example never ask the artist “Is this finished?” Just assume a work is finished—unless told otherwise. [Link]
