Apparently it could happen:
If there were something you could take after experiencing a painful or traumatic event that would permanently weaken your memory of what had just happened, would you take it? As correspondent Lesley Stahl first reported last fall, it’s an idea that may not be so far off, and that has some critics alarmed, and some trauma victims filled with hope.
Al Gore's son was busted yesterday for pot and a wealth of prescription drugs that would make Rush Limbaugh cringe.
The 24-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested for drug possession on Wednesday after he was stopped for speeding in his hybrid Toyota Prius, a sheriff's official said.
Al Gore III — whose father is a leading advocate of policies to fight global warming — was driving his environmentally friendly car at about 100 miles per hour on a freeway south of Los Angeles when he was pulled over by an Orange County sheriff's deputy at about 2:15 a.m.
The deputy smelled marijuana and searched the car, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. The search turned up a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Adderall and Soma. There were no prescriptions found, he said.
I'm really shocked at this news. Can a Prius really hit 100 mph?Written by Dignan
This when I had lost hope for the next generation. Filed under "Who The Fuck Are The Artic Monkeys". Also, as it happens, the name of one of their albums:
"It's a bit patronising for us 21 year olds to try to start to change the world," said Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders, explaining why the group is not on the bill at any of Al Gore's charity concerts.
"Especially when we're using enough power for 10 houses just for (stage) lighting. It'd be a bit hypocritical," he said in an interview before a concert in Paris.
Bass player Nick O'Malley chimes in: "And we're always jetting off on aeroplanes!"
"Someone asked us to give a quote about what was happening in Sheffield and it's like 'who cares what we think about what's happening'?" added Helders.
"There's more important people who can have an opinion. Why does it make us have an opinion because we're in a band?"
You guessed it…Live Earth is about as stupid as it gets. Al Gore promoting himself under the guise of environmentalism. All at the expense of the environment.Written by Ogre
Could this be the answer to our energy problems?

Lance Turkwood, President and CEO of the Society of Homosexual Revelry In Motion Pictures (SHRIMP) is trying to determine the best title for his next film, a 60 minute, direct-to-DVD gay pornographic feature inspired by Michael Moore's health-care-industry-skewering documentary Sicko.
"Right now, we're struggling between Dicko and Sucko. Fisto and Swallo were on the shortlist, but we thought the audience would have a difficult time making connection. It just wasn't as immediate."
Turkwood, whose naming credentials for all-male-cast features have included Shaving Ryan's Privates and Johnson Family Vacation has already held several focus groups trying to resolve the issue.
"We know the main character will be called Michael More-cock. That was pretty easy. He'll be a 'cock-u-mentary' film maker who visits various hospitals, and wonders aloud why he can't get covered for cosmetic pubic shaves and spontaneous proctological exams."
Turkwood elaborates that in each case, the physician and a male nurse or two meet More-cock in the examination room, where he is clad in a backwards hospital gown. He is quickly able to persuade every medical professional to provide desired services.
"And very convincingly," adds Turkwood. "There's a great scene where an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor exclaims: 'Oh, who cares about ears and noses anyway?'"
Turkwood also noted that, whether named Dicko or Sucko, this film would use the "rubber glove snap" sound effect an unprecedented 267 times.Written by Dignan
Mexican politics at its best:
Written by Dignan
The Mexican government vigorously denied this week the accusations of a Chinese-Mexican businessman who is wanted on drug charges here but who asserts that $150 million found hidden in his mansion came from members of President Felipe Calderón's party, including the secretary of labor.
Zhenli Ye Gon, a naturalized Mexican citizen who owns a pharmaceutical company, rocked the political world here recently by suggesting, through his lawyer in New York, that the labor secretary, Javier Lozano Alarcón, had threatened to kill him last year unless he agreed to hide duffel bags stuffed with tens of millions of dollars in his house.
