Embarrassing Bodies (Netflix)

Embarrassing Bodies (Netflix) – This one is “Not Rated” which means all bets are off as far as censorship rules go. With that said, 3 physicians visit 4 cities in England and give free exams to people who are suffering from potentially serious medical issues that the patients are just too embarrassed to see their general practitioner about.

We all have a body and that’s all we’ve been issued. Everyone has a flaw in there somewhere, and it deserves a physician’s review to prevent things from worsening, if not at least for your own piece of mind. This show takes a light approach to a difficult subject for every person, not one of us is excluded. Not. One.

If you’re offended by being naked or seeing other naked humans in a clinical setting, then you are absolutely the first person that needs to watch the first episode, start to finish. Next, get to a licensed medical doctor, force your way through embarrassment, and ask if you should continue to worry about whatever your concern is. You have one. It’s okay to ask.

No physician will judge you for being concerned about being ill, or for actually being ill for that matter. But no one can help you after you’ve lost because you didn’t seek treatment.

Asteroid Selfies

Japan can send a spacecraft 200 MILLION miles from Earth almost 4 years ago so that it can land on an asteroid, take some selfies, email them to us, pick up some pebbles as souvenirs, then pack up its kit and COME BACK TO EARTH (e.t.a. 2020). Just kidding, it’s not really ’email’ per se, but at 200 million miles, does the carrier protocol really matter?

Meanwhile my bluetooth devices a few feet away from each other aren’t friends and couldn’t be bothered. The Chromestick? Apparently it has a grudge against the Apple Airport based on each other’s stock prices. My phone that is 2 years newer than Hayabusa2 and can’t take a picture that can be trusted to self-adjust its white balance, let alone reliably send it as an attachment to my Gmail account. A $90,000 electric car can’t even manage a range of 400 miles.

Yet, Japan’s Hayabusa2….

Here I was thinking those of you that will spend over $1000 for the new iPhone XS were out of your minds… but you’re right: I need to start my own government so I can create my own space agency to buy some tech that just friggin’ works, where I want it, when I want it… even if that is 2, 20 or even 200 MILLION miles away. Or right here at my desk, every single time I need it…without a system update notice that includes a reboot.
