Smoking pot doesn't harm brain function
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Smoking marijuana will certainly affect perception, but it does not cause permanent brain damage, researchers from the University of California at San Diego say.
"The findings were kind of a surprise. One might have expected to see more impairment of higher mental function," said Dr. Igor Grant, a UCSD professor of psychiatry and the study's lead author. Other illegal drugs, or even alcohol, can cause brain damage.
His team analysed data from 15 previously published, controlled studies into the impact of long-term, recreational cannabis use on the neurocognitive ability of adults.
The studies tested the mental functions of routine pot smokers, but not while they were actually high, Grant said. read more...

Tutut, Tomi, Sigit
Suatu hari Tutut, Tomi, Sigit dengan membawa uang Rp.1juta dan terbang dengan helikopter mengelilingi Indonesia, trus...
- Tutut berkata "Bagaimana kalo kita jatuhkan uang 10 ribuan pasti seratus orang akan berbahagia"
- Tomi bilang "Ah.. lebih baik 5 ribuan, pasti 200 orang akan bahagia"
- Sigit menyanggah "Ya ngak dong, mendingan seribuan kita jatuhkan, pasti seribu orang akan bahagia..."
Tiba-tiba pilot helikopternya nyeletuk "Lebih baik kalian semua yg dijatuhkan.. pasti 200 juta orang akan berbahagia.."

Arghhh.. I'm about done with this job!!
Another frustrating morning for me at the office. Well, my job has been sucking for a while now since I moved to IT dept... days seems longer, workload is never-ending, a not too bright manager.. arghhh.. it's just not the job that I want. I miss my ex-boss...
This morning during the meeting, Tim (dept manager) once again managed to make me think twice about staying with the company. Instead of doing a better time management for the department, he's ready to take out our "Flex-Time" benefit(which mean we work extra hour everyday but we have every other Friday off). What an incapable jerk. If you can't manage, don't be a manager damn it!
Well he got laid off before he took on this job (referenced by a colleague at this dept, how convenient) .. so his primary mission is probably to please his boss by working his people hard so he can save his ass.
Argh.. I'm just gonna go with the flow and take this shit. I'm considering this job as my training days for a better tommorow =)
