Science Friday!

bacteriaIt's 2AM and I just finished today's cartoon. Why is it so late? Well, it has nothing to do with my clients. Really. Honest.

I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients. I love my clients.


In case you're not keeping up with science news it's apparently true that there are exactly three separate strains of microbial flora in the various guts of all humans. These bacteria cross all age, race and gender lines though there may be a relation to blood type. Too early to tell yet.

Each variety works differently on different foods so, needless to say, the yogurt companies are all a-twitter over the marketing possibilities. Especially since it'll become quickly re rigueur for foodie douchebags to learn which ecosystem they're incubating so they can castigate the odd waiter for mistaking them for a Prevotella when everyone knows they're a Ruminococcus.

Meanwhile, quick science factoid: You have about 10 trillion cells in your body, but you also about 100 trillion microbes in there, too.



Annnnnnnd last but not least, the quote of the day:

"These are the values inspiring those brave workers in Poland ... They remind us that where free unions and collective bargaining are forbidden, freedom is lost." - Ronald Reagan



john boehnerFebruary 10, 2011: "We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner.

So far the list of GOP accomplishments for 2011 is:

(1) Attempted curtailing of abortion rights.
(2) Attempted defunding of Planned Parenthood.
(3) Attempted defunding of NPR.
(4) Investigating Muslims.
(5) Declaring English as America's Official Language.
(6) Reaffirming "In God We Trust".
(7) Challenging AARP's tax-exempt status.
(8) Approved defunct funding for failed religious schools.
(9) Attempt to destroy Medicaid.
(10) Attempt to destroy Planned Parenthood
(11) Shutting down the government
(12) Attempt to destroy the EPA.
(13) Attempting to eliminate financial counseling.
(14) Passed a House budget that gives $4 trillion in tax cuts to the rich.
(15) Spend $500,000 to discriminate against gays.
(16) Continued toadying for the rich.

Nope. No job creation here. Move along. Move along.

I'll keep adding to this list until the Republican House does something to create jobs. I unhappily predict this is gonna be one lonnnnng list.

Scientists have discovered that human gut bacteria divide people into three distinct types.

People who eat carbohydrates.
People who eat proteins.
People who'll swallow anything.

Fox News: Obama born in Kenya. Saddam Hussein has WMD's. Trump's running for president. Republicans are fiscally responsible.
