Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? Reading a good book (or a bad one)? Anything in the news that you’d like to discuss? What have you created lately? Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?
I see an old post of mine about the Angels and their lead singer Doc Neeson and a certain song is getting some traffic over the last few days since his death. Looking at pictures, I can still feel that amazing energy he put into his performance.
I love the Bad Chart Thursday posts on Skepchick, which mock various exercises in unjustifed extrapolation from datasets compromised by unacknowledged confounding factors or otherwise lacking rigor. This quote comes from the latest:
40 years of women’s rights will be undone in June 2014 when many of Sydney’s specialist women’s refuges are forced to close. Under the NSW Government’s new tenders, women-only services were not allowed to tender for women-only services.
Rhymes with jolt.
