Disgusted Researchers Can’t Even Bring Themselves To Find Out How Much Mayo The Average American Consumes Yearly

WILLIAMSBURG, VA—Almost too queasy to even comment on the study at all, a team of disgusted researchers from the College of William and Mary announced Thursday they couldn't bring themselves to find out how much mayonnaise the average American consumes each year. 


"After reviewing preliminary figures on the annual rate of mayonnaise consumption in the U.S., we couldn't stop gagging and decided there was absolutely no way we could pursue this topic any further," said head researcher Leonard Aldridge, adding that he insisted the data be reexamined multiple times to uncover the mathematical error he assumed must account for the sickening numbers that had emerged.


"I still shudder when I think about all the test subjects who arrived at our research lab with mayonnaise literally on their fingers and mouth and, on one or two occasions, in their hair. Seriously, when a questionnaire comes back to you smeared with mayonnaise on both sides, do you even need to score it?" 


Aldridge went on to say, however, that he was certain future studies into the consumption rates of melted cheese, ranch dressing, and butter would be far less disturbing.

the first clinical trial

May 2nd is international scurvy awareness day.

Here's a bit of history about limes, scurvy and the British navy.

Also the first clinical trial. 


Lind's major contribution to science was the first controlled clinical trial. In 1747, aboard the HMS Salisbury, Lind took twelve sailors suffering from scurvy and divided them into six pairs. Each pair received a different scurvy treatment. The two men who were given citrus fruit became well within six days and even helped to care for the other sailors. All of the other men remained ill.

Dorothy Parker. "My Home Town"

This love letter to New York is from an an essay written by Dorothy Parker for McCall's magazine in 1928. I hope you enjoy it ...

_____________________________

"My Home Town"

It occurs to me that there are other towns. It occurs to me so violently that I say, at intervals, "Very well, if New York is going to be like this, I'm going to live somewhere else." And I do—that's the funny part of it. But then one day there comes to me the sharp picture of New York at its best, on a shiny blue-and-white Autumn day with its buildings cut diagonally in halves of light and shadow, with its straight neat avenues colored with quick throngs, like confetti in a breeze. 

Someone, and I wish it had been I, has said that "Autumn is the Springtime of big cities." I see New York at holiday time, always in the late afternoon, under a Maxfield Parrish sky, with the crowds even more quick and nervous but even more good-natured, the dark groups splashed with the white of Christmas packages, the lighted holly-strung shops urging them in to buy more and more. 

I see it on a Spring morning, with the clothes of the women as soft and as hopeful as the pretty new leaves on a few, brave trees. I see it at night, with the low skies red with the black-flung lights of Broadway, those lights of which Chesterton—or they told me it was Chesterton—said, "What a marvelous sight for those who cannot read!" 

I see it in the rain, I smell the enchanting odor of wet asphalt, with the empty streets black and shining as ripe olives. I see it—by this time, I become maudlin with nostalgia—even with its gray mounds of crusted snow, its little Appalachians of ice along the pavements. So I go back. And it is always better than I thought it would be.

I suppose that is the thing about New York. It is always a little more than you had hoped for. Each day, there, is so definitely a new day. "Now we'll start over," it seems to say every morning, "and come on, let's hurry like anything."

London is satisfied, Paris is resigned, but New York is always hopeful. Always it believes that something good is about to come off, and it must hurry to meet it. There is excitement ever running its streets. Each day, as you go out, you feel the little nervous quiver that is yours when you sit in the theater just before the curtain rises. Other places may give you a sweet and soothing sense of level; but in New York there is always the feeling of "Something's going to happen." It isn't peace. But, you know, you do get used to peace, and so quickly. And you never get used to New York.

Bright ideas for repurposing lab equipment

Back in 1984, when Rich Haack first laid eyes on a high-field nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, he had a vision for the instrument that went beyond analyzing chemical compounds. "I thought if you could hollow it out, it would make a neat smoker, outdoor oven, or fire pit," he tells Newscripts.

So worth the price


A Barista at Starbucks told me one of her customers ordered a coffee, gave their name as Bueller, and, unbeknownst to her, left the store. 

When the coffee was ready she called out, "Bueller? ... Bueller? ... Bueller?"

The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America:

  


A must-have for anyone with a passion for shopping carts and a love of the great outdoors. 

In The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America author Julian Montague has created an elaborate classification system of abandoned shopping carts, accompanied by photographic documentation of actual stray cart sightings. 

Working in the naturalist's tradition, the photographs depict the diversity of the phenomenon and carry a surprising emotional charge; readers inevitably begin to see these carts as human, at times poignant in their abandoned, decrepit state, hilariously incapacitated, or ingeniously co-opted. 

The result is at once rigorous and absurd, enabling the layperson to identify and classify their own cart spottings based on the situation in which they were found.
