    On another note, great entries in the blog; the “Adele” video always gets the waterworks going for me as I resonate with the joy her impersonators must have felt at being able to meet their idol.

    The press, television, radio and the blogosphere latch on to every new study and report it as though the results were definitive, because the truth is not as important as eyeballs on ads.

    USA Today: “Heavy coffee consumption linked to higher death risk.”

    National Institutes of Health: “Study finds that coffee drinkers have lower risk of death.”

    I wish the media would get the message that science doesn’t work just because of one study. Science works when you have a preponderance of evidence based on peer-reviewed, repeatable results.

    Sadly, the news cycle can’t wait 50 years for those clicks, so this is what we get.

    I’m not sure how it happened, but today’s installment of Frog Applause led me into an hours-long dive into the strange and captivating history of Joe Gould and his most-likely apocryphal “Oral History of Our Times.” He spawned articles and essays and a movie by Stanley Tucci called “Joe Gould’s Secret,” which I must now somehow find and watch; what an odd, colorful, largely insane or possibly autistic individual he must have been.
