Ephmans want to turn to follow a couple new blogs that he is following. One is out of Japan called japantrends.com. I found out about them as they were profiled on CNN. They blog about a variety of different topics of digital life, marketing ideas, lifestyles and fashion, and product innovations. You know innovating products nobody in the world does is as well as the Japanese. One thing in particular they showed off was this breast pillow okay. Don't ask, you can buy this breast pillow at $59 US you can stick your head in between some fake boobs for comfort. Any event, whatever it's a pretty cool blog go check it out.
Let's see what is on the saved list of another new blog. Actually that ephman's been following is 1000awesomethings.com. This person every day what he does or she does not exactly sure. They post one thing every day that is totally awesome and December 17 was number 611. Typing your username and password at the speed of light is number 611 most awesome thing. They've been featured on CNN, Wired and The Toronto Star. So these are all pretty positive awesome things. So every day to check out what a new awesome thing is.
Cat Stevens is in Toronto currently. Actually his real name now is Yusuf Islam. And 17,000 people are expected to attend the three-day conference our which is titled Reviving the Islamic Spirit. It's currently at the Metro Toronto convention center. So if you are in the Toronto area probably should stop by and say hi to everybody. Also comedy and hip-hop group Allah Made Me Funny is going to be performing at thisevent.
Out of dailygalaxy.com it looks like prehistorical lakes in the Antarctica have been discovered with unknown viruses. So it might not actually be global warming that kills us. It might be the viruses these brand-new viruses out of global warming that will kill us. This is this is ephman's take on global warming. Actually nothing is wrong with our planet. It is doing exactly what it should be doing under the circumstances. It's us that has something really screwed up inside so we need to change our behavior. At some sort of level. But in any event these prehistoric lakes have been discovered in the Antarctic with new and unknown viruses. Scary stuff, they will probably be taking these to a science lab near you.
Chinese bloggers now are no longer being executed, which is very nice to hear. Instead they are being fine. $42,000 apparently. These bloggers wrote that this Chinese film director died in the arms of a prostitute. Apparently China got pretty angry about that and and bloggers blog that they will not apologize, and they are not going to pay the money, and they are going to appeal. So hey guys, if you're blogging in China and the government is kind of pissed off at you your neck is on the line there. Man that's kind of crazy stuff so be careful don't get executed because you're a Chinese blogger and feeling really awful for you kids out there so hopefully one day freedom for China.
Let's see what else Star Trek movie was on the most pirated this year along with Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. These make sense. Stealing content is for geeks and so stop stealing movies. Stop stealing music, and just join places like Netflix and wait for it to come.
