Hacking your way into the company of gods

Lucy was a thoroughly shitty movie. It was so bad I was physically restrained at the cinemas from crawling into the screen and giving everyone an uppercut; not even Scarlett Johansson could distract me. Ok, that wasn’t possible but my-my, I wish I could. The deeper narrative wasn’t lost on me, though – humanity has […]

Fermi Paradox Keeps Me Up At Night

I have always been fascinated by Fermi Paradox but nothing captures this better than this link. Read but I doubt if you will enjoy it: http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/05/fermi-paradox.html

The end is nigh. Artificial Intelligence

BEGIN Like an errant kid the world is surely bent on killing itself. This time around even the cockroaches won’t be spared. If you think that someone is going to throw a nuclear bomb, think about it, who wants to die when MAD (mutually assured destruction) is a known consequence? Not even a super power […]

Fermi Paradox, Time Travel and my Non-Visiting Grand Children

Recently bored, I found myself reading about Fermi Paradox. You see, quite a lot of scientists believe that there are intelligent beings outside planet earth – we just need to fly out there and shake their hands, if they actually have hands that can be shaken. In fact the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence can trace […]

In 100 years, 9 women will deliver a child in a month

100 years ago was 1911 – life was hard (simple if you read the romantic part of history). Planes were still toys. There was no TV or X-Factor. Rick Dees wasn’t even born then. The concept of the connected meme was still 30+ years into the future. Kids born out of wedlock were called bastards […]

The Lord of Babel has a Graphene Microchip

The world will change and it would be in Graphene. I have known about this wonder material for years but no where has it been described better than this. Trust me, if we ever get this done – the world is going to end, what happened at Babel would be child’s play.

Cashless Nigeria by Force, by Fire!

I was recently reviewing a CBN report on Cashless Nigeria and it is scary to know that 65% of Cash in Circulation is outside the banking system. I guess everything the CBN can do to cajole those who have ecstasy at the sight of cash wouldn’t work. Time we did it differently. What will happen if […]

BroApp Makes Love Perfect!

I dreamed about it, talked about it. Well, it’s here. You know dreams can come true sometimes. Introducing the BroApp – an app that takes the pain out of dating or relationship, especially when you are into a pesky, attention hungry woman. I’m not a misogynist (far from it!) but some ladies need more attention […]

This is what we call meaty progress

For example, in 1925, the average Tyson chicken lived approximately 112 days, weighed around 2.5 pounds at the time of slaughter, and had consumed about 4.7 pounds of grain per pound of its body weight. In 2010, the same chicken lived just 45 days, was slaughtered at an average weight of 5.63 pounds, and consumed […]

The Rise of the Bionic Men

I’ve always been fascinated by science fiction, bionic men and even much more by the real science miracles; each day I watch determined scientists and engineers make our wild and sometimes horrific dreams come true. The advancement in prosthetics is growing in leap and bonds. Many being tested are now getting connected to our neural bus […]
