The NRC initiates a review of radioactive wristbands

The NRC initiates a review of radioactive wristbands

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

I received an email from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission today that states they are “reviewing the information you provided to determine what NRC follow-up activities will be conducted”. They will update me with the results of their review and let me know if they intend to follow-up or let the case drop. I will […]

Radioactive wristbands

Radioactive wristbands

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

I have been consulting for a company involved in the alternative health “negative ion bracelet” business. I’ve also been working with them to produce a silicone bracelet for my own company (ironically called Dangerous Things) that has an RFID tag embedded inside. I chose to work with this company because I liked their style of […]

Let's talk about gun control

Let’s talk about gun control

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

I don’t own a gun. I want one… heck, I’ve made lists of guns I’d want to buy… but this post isn’t about that. It’s about the absolute insanity of “gun nut” types when it comes to even trying to have a discussion about gun control. So I figured, why not take this gun debate […]

After my experience at ToorCamp, it became clear… there are certain kinds of people who are interested in this DIY approach to RFID implantation. So I put together a little online storefront that sells, well, dangerous things. http://dangerousthings.com

How common OTC "pain pills" work

How common OTC “pain pills” work

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

While cleaning out the medicine cabinet today, I came across a bunch of different kinds of “pain pills”. Because of my experience with gout, I know not to take Tylenol or any other Acetaminophen based products… but I wondered what the difference really was and how each one worked. It turns out, most pain drugs […]

RFID implant removal and replacement

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

From March 2005 to March 2012 I had a 2mm by 12mm glass encased HITAG S tag implanted in my right hand. The HITAG was chosen for it’s feature set, which includes writable memory blocks, the ability to emulate EM4102 tags, and a 40 bit crypto-security feature that could help protect the tag’s memory blocks […]

Force cancer cells to commit suicide... with electricity!

Force cancer cells to commit suicide… with electricity!

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the best-known methods for treating cancer. At TEDMED, Bill Doyle presents a new approach, called Tumor Treating Fields, which uses electric fields to interrupt cancer cell division. Still in its infancy — and approved for only certain types of cancer — the treatment comes with one big benefit: quality of […]

Review of Vibram KomodoSport shoes

Review of Vibram KomodoSport shoes

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

I bought some goofy shoes today… the kind with all the toes broken out into individual little pockets. I saw them a couple days ago in a local sporting goods store and thought they might just help with that cramped feeling my toes have. I know you might just be thinking “get bigger shoes idiot”, […]

The hunt for health insurance in America

The hunt for health insurance in America

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

I recently had to change up my insurance situation and, in doing some research, came across this article. I’m re-posting in full because I believe in data protection through incessant duplication. The magic of “high deductible” plans by C. Dean Richard, JD, MSBA, a leading HSA expert and one of America’s most trusted benefits brokers […]

Cure for Cancer

Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

Well Chris Rock’s prediction about AIDS treatment came true, and it looked as though the same would be said for Cancer. Big companies are only interested in cures they can patent. A simple cure would spell disaster for the Cancer industry (yes, it is a billion dollar industry), but that’s just what a small group […]
