It’s true. We live in amazing times, and everyone is as grumpy as ever!

    Yah – I saw this in a few places yesterday. Utterly brilliant for me, though I suspect confused the hell out of a lot of the non-internet savvy people…

elections

As a friend wrote, I never expected to see anyone but a white male elected President of the United States in my lifetime. (That post is friend-locked, so only some of you can see it, sorry).

On the other hand, I still don’t expect to see the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup in my lifetime. And until last week, I would have given better odds on the Leafs… :-)

    I thought that someone who tries on women’s clothing without ever looking at the price tags was a shoe-in for a high office in the United States, but unfortunately it was not clear that Paulson could continue on under Palin.

you can always count on gravity

Evidence-based Medicine sounds like a good thing, until you realize that sometimes collecting the data required causes more problems than it solves. These guys took this argument to an extreme:

Parachute use to prevent death and major trauma related to gravitational challenge: systematic review of randomised controlled trials

Conclusions As with many interventions intended to prevent ill health, the effectiveness of parachutes has not been subjected to rigorous evaluation by using randomised controlled trials. Advocates of evidence based medicine have criticised the adoption of interventions evaluated by using only observational data. We think that everyone might benefit if the most radical protagonists of evidence based medicine organised and participated in a double blind, randomised, placebo controlled, crossover trial of the parachute.

I’m sure they’ll get lots of volunteers for the study… :-)

    That article is brilliant! A bit over the top and stretched the analogy to breaking point but does make a valid point.

    Hey! you read my weblog! cool! :-)

The bonding gene

…it’s too early for men to blame their inability to commit on a single gene, although Lucas guesses it’s an excuse that’s “certainly going to be used.”

A study of Swedish twin brothers found that differences in a gene modulating the hormone vasopressin were strongly tied to how well each man fared in marriage.

The Weakest Link

I thought I had posted this photo a long time ago, but I can’t find it now, so here it is again. (It came up on Fairly Oddparents this morning).

I first saw this on Bruce Scheier’s security weblog.

(As it turns out, I had uploaded it to Gallery, but still never linked it here. Must have been distracted. Damned kids, get off my lawn! :-)

disbelief

In reference to several recent movies, including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull:

“Suspension of disbelief does not mean ‘by the neck, until dead’”

Some of the comments on this review are equally hilarious:

I often use pencils to write notes on paper, but have been thinking about changing to a pen. Is this pen a good starting point for a novice?

lessons of history

From Bruce Schneier’s security weblog:

Here’s a clip from an Australian TV programme called “The Chaser”. A Trojan Horse (full of appropriately attired soldiers) finds its way past security everywhere except the Turkish consulate.

At least they remember their history.

Now all of the women I know can pee standing up like a man

What will they think of next?

(In all seriousness, I can see a use for this; many public washrooms are truly disgusting places that I wouldn’t want to park my buttocks in…)

Pachelbels Canon

As seen in the Pachelbels Canon – CollegeHumor video, it really is everywhere.

Maybe you have to be a bit of a music geek, but I laughed myself silly over this one…

  1. Heck, I even heard that routine while I was riding on the bus a couple of weeks ago — one of the local radio stations rebroadcast it.
