About
Bears are big-ass, ornery MoFos, but you probably knew that. What you may not know is that bears enjoy Survival Horror, Platformers, some RPGs, but mostly any game with solid character/story development fueled by copious amounts of Mountain Dew. These are the important details that Animal Planet tends to leave out and I would be remiss if I left you to find out in the streets amongst the ill informed.

As for this bear, my favorite games include (but are not limited to) RE3, Ratchet&Clank, FFX, FFXII, Psyconauts, Silent Hill 1. I am also currently a poor-ass bitch so unless someone wants to donate $600 to my cause Next Gen will have to wait.In the meantime, PC Games have become a large part of my gaming diet; this includes the Halflife games, Bioshock and Portal.

[more may be added as I think of it or suddenly become obscenely rich.]

ABC News reports DARPA developing the tech to circumvent the need for that pesky thing called sleep.


[quote="ABC News"]The treatment is "a totally new route for increasing arousal, and the new study shows it to be relatively benign," said Jerome Siegel, a professor of psychiatry at UCLA and a co-author of the paper. "It reduces sleepiness without causing edginess."

Orexin A is a promising candidate to become a "sleep replacement" drug. For decades, stimulants have been used to combat sleepiness, but they can be addictive and often have side effects, including raising blood pressure or causing mood swings. The military, for example, administers amphetamines to pilots flying long distances, and has funded research into new drugs like the stimulant modafinil (.pdf) and orexin A in an effort to help troops stay awake with the fewest side effects.[/quote]
