My annual checkup was not a happy time. In the immortal words of Paul Simon :
Kid you better look around
How long you think that you can
Run that body down?
How many nights you think you can
Do what you been doin’
Who you foolin?
All the bad things were up. Nothing but tree bark and treadmills from here on out. 😦
Totally unrelated : Popular Science has turned off its comments. The trolls have won. This bothers me.
We can’t have a civilized conversation on the internet about science? (Or anything else for that matter.) This particularly bothers me, though, because science is not about debating and promoting an opionion or value. Science is the way you decide between competing opinions. It is the way you make a rational decision, it is not merely one side of an argument. Any fool can have an opinion, and many do. But, your opinion doesn’t have the same weight as evidence backed up by data.
