Trepanning is good for you!

Crane-trepanation

Over the course of the week I was hit with several emails informing me of the mystical benefits of bleeding. I even started joking with my friends that all it might take is a touch of new age nonsense combined with ancient medicine and old men wearing robes, and there would be people who would …

Bleeding complete

I tried to find the Theodoric of York Medieval Doctor clip from SNL with Steve Martin, where he bleeds every pax that comes in until they are pale and lifeless, to garnish this follow-up on my procedure: I had to be bled. My red and white counts were already lower when I went in than they were in …

Mittens thinks cold fusion is solved?

If we take this comment from Romney literally, he thinks not only is cold fusion a done deal, but U of U solved it:

I am to be bled

Last week was supposed to be vacation for me, that’s why posting was light. But alas, fate threw me a curve. An AS flare up led to a routine blood test, which came back with some unusual cell counts. We believe we know what’s causing it, and if we’re right it’s easily managed. But there are some other …

Best space porn of the year

Greenworld

TIME magazine online has posted the best astronomy shots of the year. I suppose that’s a subjective call, there are so many magnificent ones. We are living smack dab in the middle of the greatest age of human discovery ever known. If only more of us could be a part of it. A couple of shots linked below to whet your …

Help! Let the creationist fisking begin!

I’m not sure why a magazine dedicated to business would delve into the evolution issue. Nor how exactly this writer was taken in by the frauds at the Discovery Institute. But it reads like a press release straight off of Stephen Meyer’s private printing press, let the fisking begin:

Romney has some splain’n to do

The tape that was heard around the world is still circling the global net today. In it Mitt Romney basically calls out half of us as being parasitic moochers who pay no tax and for whom he isn’t concerned with. I’d very much like Romney to walk in my shoes for one month to see just …
