The Rat Park Experiments & an article on diets in the NYT. Both of these got me thinking about how hard it is to prove something. I am fascinated by the fact that no one in the scientific community got excited by the results of Rat Park, and I am fascinated that no one cares that the commercial diet industry can't (or won't) prove its effectiveness.
I also learned about Shirley Chisholm, who died earlier this week. I had never heard of her.
Last night I got to watch 3 Dawson's Creek episodes with judithiscariot and we ate Cluck U. Pacey + wings = decandence, in my little world. Tonight, cheese dip. Current primary motivators are birls and fear of leading an ultimately ineffective life.
Edit: My ipod is doing this thing where when it tries to sync it complains about the playcount file being corrupted. It makes me cry, and makes syncing not work right. Grr.
