Why didn't I think of that?

I don't have long, but I thought I'd pass this along before I prepare moving into my new lab - and boy do I need to move! One of my creatures, in major need of more room, ran out the door to discover that horrible, nasty creature repellent was showering down from the sky.
` This is, in some conceivable way, right in theme with this post; an announcement of the best shampoo I've ever heard of, Johnson & Johnson 'Nothing But Tears'.
"You'll notice a difference after just one use," said Michelle Baker, head of new product development. "Whether it's your newborn's more hardened appearance, the way he now approaches people with guarded skepticism, or just that look on his face that says, 'Oh wait, maybe life isn't all hugs and kisses and rainbows. Maybe I need to get my fucking act together.'"
Read the rest of the article here... at the Onion of course! (They sure do give me good ideas!)

"Nothing but Tears" - that's excellent! I always forget to check the Onion regularly. Boo, me.

Hey, as a proud skeptic, you might want to see if you can catch the Mythbusters episode from a couple of weeks back when they debunked the moon hoaxers. Nothing mind-blowing, but it was pretty cool.

Is it online? We don't have a TV or anything. We just have the internet because it's important for business.

I'm not sure if you can get full episodes online. http://dsc.discovery.com/fansites/mythbusters/mythbusters.html will get you to some random outtakes and stuff you can watch online, but I haven't clicked through the "Full Episodes" link because you've got to download something or other and it's not even clear what episodes are there.

Sorry to tempt you with something inaccessible. I didn't realize the no-TV-ness of your interesting-looking life.

Oh wow, thanks! Indeed, it is strange to have an interesting-looking life and yet no TV. Maybe.
` Nice! I never suspected that I'd watch a dude try building an Onion Mp3 charger, considering how that would make no sense....

Oh wow, most interesting. I think I learned something. I had a relative that worked at Fermilabs till he had a massive heart attack. Now I know what they dis there as I looked up where he worked wondering what they had to say about the new and improved place in Europe. Their track is only 4 miles long. I guess size matters.

Glad to see you here! (Wrong post, though!)
