2 things

8 Jan

One: I’m a bit unclear as to how this new toy which actually for real teaches you to really using your actual brain waves and not by touching elevate a ball by really using The Force for real. I get that the headset measures your brain activity, and I get that when your brain activity is strong enough it activates the base of the ball tube thingie, which turns a fan on and blows the ping-pong-like ball up into the air… but… is there a wire connecting the headset to the base? Are they networked together with bluetooth or wifi or something? Does it actualy involve The Force?

Two: The Obama children are attending a private Quaker school in their new town of D.C. So now the family is Christian, Muslim, and Quaker?

    Quaker-run private schools are pretty much the norm for politicians’ kids in DC. They’re going to Chelsea Clinton’s old school.

      Really? How cool. Silly of the Quakers to not publicize that a bit more, but I guess that’s not really their style.

        Heh, because of their preference for individualism over creed, Quakers are sort of like a nondenominational-but-still-more-or-less Christian group. It’s always struck me as being one step away from Unitarian Universalists–or rather, the other way around, since quakers came first 😛

        It’s true, we’ve always sort of gone between Quakers and Unitarians interchangeably depending on which community was bigger wherever we were living.
        I just wish the Quakers would advertise more.
