Seasonal weight gain and neuro-linguistics! Holiday edition

One of the cool things about not being too smart is that you feel constantly amazed by little things that probably aren't really that amazing to smart people. The Google news feed on this blog provides me a steady stream of those things, like this one: There is a whole school of what looks like a hypnosis-based therapy called "Neuro-Linguistic Psychology". The Natural Language Processing folks must know about this since these guys also use "NLP" as their abbreviation. NLP and neuro-linguistics are both really important things, but I never expected them to help with holiday weight gain!

In the end, this is nowhere close to being as surreal as the Packers-Lions halftime show ... the Goo-Goo Dolls are playing with this army of ballerina-like dancers swirling around in the mists of the fog machines. Somebody was abusing some serious substance when they came up with that.

NLP is wacky. They claim to be able cure phobias in a single session by reprogramming your neuro-linguistic connections.

What ARE my neuro-linguistic connectons, though?
