greetings, SG1:feretti

In the film Ghost (nothing but top-notch entertainment in this LJ) there's this ghost played by the intriguing Vincent Schiavelli who lives in the subway, jumping from train to train. By turns curmudgeonly, affable, terrified and crazed, he shows Sam Wheat how to affect the physical world -- to hit a barrier, kick a can and so on.

Then towards the end his brain seems to slip off whatever ledge it was clinging to. "Who are you! What do you *want* from me?!?" he screeches before taking a running jump into the nearest subway car.

I feel much the same way sometimes when I see my "friends of" list.

Hello! Whoever you are. :::waves perkily, takes medication:::

(And I swear, if anyone tells me that should have been "whom", I will disembowel them and wear their intestines for an ear muffler. It's been that kind of week)

Apparently, Coke outsells Pepsi because Coca-Cola have altered our branes OMG!
When they do an MRI scan on the brains of people drinking coke, the parts of the brain that deal with memories also light up even though in taste tests Pepsi outperforms Coke -- showing that brand marketing really works Not that this has anything to do with anything, I just thought it was interesting in light of the fact that I currently drink about 20 cans of Diet Coke a week.
