Damn web interfaces... I need to invent a way to save your work in these things a la Word so that way this never happens:
Walter fires up his blogger right-click interface and types out a story. Walter clicks publish.
It tells him its published.
The story never appears
Anyways... I just figured I'd write. Saw one of the most disturbing movies ever last night, Requiem for a Dream. Seriously messed up man... the director, Darren Aronofsky (who is a rather normal looking young man) compared the film to a jump from a plane without a parachute, and the movie ends three minutes after you hit the ground. Sick stuff. Needless to say it really grabbed me and shook me up big time. This movie's hallucinations induced real life ones. Just.... don't watch it if you don't want to have problems going to sleep at night. This movie should be shown at rehab clinics- it'll get anyone to go straight.
Here is a game you can play:
Do you think the conclusions of the study were:
If you answered 1 through 3, then you're correct! But it's too bad that they didn't take any decent statistics courses, because if I was working with that study, you'd just realize it was number 4! Just like a stuy I once read where they found that soccer players who tended to hit the ball with their heads had lower iqs than those who didn't. This doesn't mean that they are being made dumb from all of the hits to the head, but instead that people with a higher iq just know better than to hit their head on a damn ball.
Just wanted to write :)Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us
