Today listening to "I know him so well" from the ABBA musical Chess it occurred to me that the song is quite the paean to monogamy in spite of the characters actually involved.

Reading over the comments to this post on [livejournal.com profile] customers_suck it struck me that either commenters were confusing childhood development stages or that there’s a huge fabricated extension of childhood in the US.

Having seen this post on [livejournal.com profile] bad_rpers_suck I was about ready to dismiss the idea of RP as therapy out of hand until it occurred to me that I have seen it happen. Read more... )

None of which is the RaceFail 2009 post I’ve been meaning to write but once my brain has kicked into gear I’m going to have something to say on the topic of dismissing the evidence because it’s a highly favoured academic tactic which illustrates one of the major problems with epistemic communities.

In other news, I have two DreamWidth invite codes to hand if anybody wants one.

Having made a brief foray into Batman fiction recently this mostly constituted an excuse to read Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth and complain about the casting of Cillian Murphy in the role of Scarecrow, again.

While this is interesting in the same way that moving down the periodic table from Sodium with reactions to water is what strikes me about the entire process is just how easy it is. It’s certainly more effort than I’d be prepared to go to if I even had a biometric reader to test it on but it’s really not that hard at all. But then nitrating toluene isn’t all that hard either though it was under lab conditions when I did it so I had someone else constantly monitoring the ice bath so that things didn’t explode while I was working on them which suggests that difficulty really is pretty relative when it comes down to it.

To be honest, I probably stopped caring about this around about the same time that I worked out that no matter how many accurate spells to guard you in your passage into the afterlife The Book of the Dead contained you were still going to be eaten by a crocodile if your heart wasn’t in balance against that feather. Though possibly things like the 1998 edition of Emery’s Elements of Medical Genetics have just killed the novelty value of this sort of thing over time.
