Out of the Blue

Today kicks off Game Developers Conference Europe, so there should be some news from there over the next couple of days.

My weird ear for celebrity voices popped up again over the weekend, as I became convinced the voice in the NFL's new TV promos is Forest Whitaker. A quick Google suggested I was wrong, but I heard it a couple more times and did a better search, and found out it is indeed his voice. The weird thing is that before this if you asked me if I thought I knew what he sounded like I would have answered probably not. Too bad there's not a way to capitalize on this odd skill: Like Name that Tune for voices or something.

Wow, a three fold increase? That's a lot. I always thought that obesity-related deaths were too low, but three times too low? That's depressing. We need a better approach to handling this. There's a whole bunch we can be doing to encourage people to eat better and exercise more.

in the end the outside can only do so much. if people wanna be healthy they have to take it upon themselves, and it doesn't take a scientist or doctor to tell when someone is unhealthy; just look in the mirror. not 100% accurate, but a good indicator. most of the overweight people i know bring it on themselves because they don't like physical activity; neither work nor play. contrast that with the thin people i know, and they love sports, looking and feeling good, and just leading active lives in general. it's really just slothfulness, and there's no cure for that.
