    Lincoln was not a fiction.

    Doggie, you can make that dude run his butt off any time you want.

    1. Segal wrote that a long time ago.

    2. There’s Dean’s world, and then there’s Heart’s world. The two only overlap to a certain extent.

    It is startling to think that people imagine that they can get out of debt by borrowing. It’s like thinking you can get dry by getting wet.

    Why do all these people sound exactly the way my parents sounded back in 1968?

    @whitecarabaoEnough Internet garbage already. No part of that story is true.

    Well, look at the shape of this poor guy’s bed. Check out the headboard-to-footboard relationship. That bed’s bent 90 degrees and slopes toward the floor on the open side. At that, though, he’s lucky; imagine if his bed had been drawn by Picasso.

    @x_Tech: You’ve rediscovered the fact that non-ASCII characters can do undesirable things online. That’s only been true for about the last thirty years. Sometime in the next century I expect it to go away. You’ll probably be around then. I won’t.

    It’s not stars in the universe. It’s human cells in the body. Bacteria are so much smaller than human cells that it takes more of them to weigh 3-5 pounds than enough human cells to weigh 150-200 pounds. It’s one of those gee-whiz stats that only impresses people who have a low level of numeracy and a poor level of scientific understanding.

    What really matters is that the commensal bacteria that live in and on the human body have important roles to play in our physiology. They make direct and important contributions to our health. We need to be aware of that when we dump a pile of antibiotics into the system without thinking through the fact that doing so will have costs as well as benefits.

    In recent months Scientific American has run some good materials on this. I’m sure a little Googling will turn up more good stuff as well among the usual welter of web-based dreck.

    This might as well be copied & pasted from certain websites out there. There are people in frightening numbers who really do think this way. Jet contrails are mind control drugs fed into the atmosphere. The government can control your thoughts by making your bar drink generate radiation. The world is controlled by aliens who landed at Area 59. The World Trade Center was taken down by the CIA. And so on, and so on, and so on.
