Sunburn Deep Itching Solved

Last night my sunburn started itching. This was very suprising since the burn actually occurred some four days ago. The itching sensation was maddening since it was very deep and nothing seemed to satisfy it.

I tried the following with no success:

Cold Shower (1 hr+)

Ice Packs

Calamine Lotion


Oatmeal Bath

Manually stretching the Skin (painful but no help)

Nothing seemed to work, so I went for more drastic measures. The following combo fixed it after about 30 minutes:

100 mg Benodryl

2 Tylynol PMs

2 BG Headache Powders

Liberal application of White Vinegar to the affected area.

Your results may vary and I do not suggest or condone the Benodryl dose.

The Darknet and the Future of Content Distribution

I found this on a post that was about the Episode 3 torrent and how George was going to lose .000024% profit. Since all of the people that will be downloading it will also be going to see it in the theater or buying some licensed product. He probably made all of his money for production back in licensing before the first ticket was sold.

Yahoo forces RIAA staff cutbacks?

Mark Cuban has a good point here. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

"As Barry Ritholz smartly pointed out in his blog, the introduction of Yahoo’s Music Unlimited Service sets the new marketvalue for all the music you can download in a month…5 bucks.

The RIAA can no longer claim that students who are downloading music are costing them thousands of dollars each. They cant claim much of anything actually. In essence, Yahoo just turned possession of a controlled music substance into a misdemeanor. Payable by a $5 per month fine."
