Just a couple interesting stories that have crossed my path in the last few days, and I figured I'd pass 'em on as a way of jump-starting the week:

It turns out you can use an MRI to monitor various aspects of people’s feelings about other people. Stick someone in the tube, monitor the hormone-producing parts of the brain, and show ‘em pictures of their loved ones, their spouses, Canadian hookers, and record the results. It’s an ongoing experiment, but eventually they hope to establish a benchmark for figuring out how emotion works

SONG OF THE DAY: "Samson and Delilah" by Bear McReary and Shirley Manson (2008)

Bear McReary did yesterday's song from the new BSG, and here's another cover song he's done for an SF show: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. (Warning: It's pretty violent!)

That's Shirley Manson of Garbage singing, she's also a character in the show.

I should mention that the guy playing guitar in yesterday's track and today's track is Steve Bartek of Oingo Boingo, who also played on "Weird Science." This makes his third appearance on "Song of the Day." Congrats, Steve! (He started out in Strawberry Alarm Clock back in the 60s)
