  • PICTURE: What Humans Will Look Like In The Year 3000...

    Posted by Average Joe

    Evolution has changed our bodies and faces over thousands of years — and it's still happening.

    Here's how experts predict people will differ from us 1,000 years from now:

    - We'll be TALLER at 6-7ft because of improved nutrition and medical science. An Osteopath says: "The average American is about one inch taller than in 1960."
    - Our INTESTINES will get shorter so we don't absorb as much fat and sugar — a natural way of avoiding obesity.
    - If male fertility declines further, there will be SMALLER TESTICLES.
    - Our most used extremities will change dramatically. ARMS AND FINGERS get longer to reduce the need to reach too far and nerve endings in hands and fingers will increase because of the greater use of devices such as iPhones that need complex eye-hand coordination.
    - We'll have SMALLER BRAINS, maybe because so much memorizing and thinking is done by our computers.
    - There will be LARGE EYES to compensate for smaller mouths.
    - A Dentist also thinks there could be FEWER TEETH as softer food needs less chewing and biting. He says: "We could even get our nutrition from liquids or pills in the future, which could mean less teeth and receded jaws."
    - Expect people to have QUADRUPLE CHINS.
    - Everyone will have the same shape of NOSE because climate is having less influence on broad or narrow hooters thanks to air conditioning and central heating.
    - Central heating and warm clothing means we'll be LESS HAIRY but there'll be more WRINKLES as a result of peering at our electronic devices.
    - And there will be darker skin as people move around the planet and races mix.

    Posted by Average Joe

    A state-by-state breakdown of top baby names highlights the different trends sweeping the nation.

    Meanwhile the Biblical name Noah was number one choice for boys in Hawaii in 2011.

    While Carter and Jayden were less popular picks, only claiming the top spots in Iowa and Florida respectively.

    For girls, Sophia has become one of the most popular.

  • Are The Foo Fighters No Longer?

    Posted by Average Joe

    Dave Grohl went on the Foo Fighters Facebook page yesterday and posted a note confirming the band will take a hiatus. The announcement came days after his onstage comments at the Global Citizen Festival in New York that led to rumors of an impending  break-up.

    Here's is Dave's letter:

    "Hey everyone . . .Dave here. Just wanted to write and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for another incredible year. (Our 18th, to be exact!) We truly never could have done any of this without you . . ."

    "Never in my wildest dreams did I think Foo Fighters would make it this far. I never thought we COULD make it this far, to be honest. There were times when I didn't think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up. But . . . I can't give up this band. And I never will. Because it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world. "

    "Yes . . . I was serious. I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It's one of the reasons we're still here. Make sense? I never want to NOT be in this band. So, sometimes it's good to just . . . put it back in the garage for a while . . ."

    But, no gold watches or vacations just yet . . . I'll be focusing all of my energy on finishing up my Sound City documentary film and album for worldwide release in the very near future. A year in the making, it could be the biggest, most important project I've ever worked on. Get ready . . . it's coming. "

    "Me, Taylor, Nate, Pat, Chris, and Rami . . . I'm sure we'll all see you out there . . . somewhere . . . Thank you, thank you, thank you . . .Dave"

    Hmmmmmm...seems like they MIGHT be back.
