Peptiva Ad And Poor Advice
There is an ad for the dietary supplement running on the TV, in which a woman is texting her friend about always suffering bad stomach problems when she eats. Her friend gives advice, but make good advice.
My talk included me touching on probiotics, complimentary and alternative medicine, integrative medicine, Dr. David Katz (who developed Peptiva), and actual medicine. I maintain there is no such thing as alternative medicine. If it works, it’s medicine.
Cool Thing #1: Late Night With David Letterman
I wrote about Late Night with David Letterman on Warehouse Find, the official blog of Nostalgia Zone, this week (Click here.) Well, there are lots of videos for he watching on the YouTube. And this link will take to the very first episode of Late Night. And that’s a cool thing.
Cool Thing #2: Gang Of Four’s “Appearance “On Late Night
As I watched that first episode of Late Night, I spotted something pretty cool. You can see it it the image above. It’s a screen capture from that first show. It shows a wall in New York city with several bills posted on it. There are a few for Late Night, one for Miles Davis, and a few for post punk legends Gang Of Four (there are two full posters in the lower right).
So, it can be said Gang Of Four appeared on Letterman’s ground-breaking show. True, they have appeared of Dave’s CBS talk show the Late Show, but that show wasn’t the same thing. Late Night was cool and so was this “appearance”.
A Lame Attempt To Blackmail Me
I received a scam email from someone attempting to get me to send them $500 in bitcoin to them or else they would release video of me “enjoying” some online porn. I was given 50 hours to comply, otherwise everyone on my email list would be sent that video.
I didn’t comply. It’s far more than 50 hours. Have you seen such a video yet?
Pedantic Moment: Geico Ads
Geico Insurance has lots of ads. Their advertising budget must be huge to support so many different ad campaigns. One campaign caters to baseball rivalries and two of the ads bring out the pendant in me…
The ad featuring rival fans of the Washington Nationals and the New York Mets has a landscaper (the Mets fans) sculpting “Go Mets” into the lawn of a Nats fan. I think the landscaper will soon be looking for a new job.
Another ad has an Atlanta Braves fan choosing to sit between to crying babies rather than sit next to a Philadelphia Phillies fan. The things is the babies are obviously twins and the man and woman holding the fussy ones are obviously together, so why the empty seat between them?
Cool Thing #3: STEVE
|“Steve is looking good tonight.”
There is an unusual atmospheric condition related to the auroras. Amateur scientists/astronomers have helped the pros figure out what this phenomenon might be. Occasionally, a single thin purple ribbon of light can be seen in the night sky. The amateurs took to called it Steve. Professional astronomers used the inform the amateurs gathered to help figure out what was going on.
It’s not completely settled but they are close. The pros decided to call the phenomenon Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement or STEVE. Cool!
