The Gloomiest Day of the Year

I've often wondered how some people get the funding necessary to proceed with important research. You know, finding a cure for cancer, eliminating AIDS, even finding a vaccine against colds would be a cool thing. It turns out that a British scientist has developed a mathematical formula to determine when people tend to be depressed.

TODAY is this most depressing day! January 23rd! Not the 22nd (my dad's birthday--I guess that's a good thing). Not the 24th!

TODAY. Who understands the statistical bla-bla? In a nutshell, this guy figured that by the 23rd most people had broken their New Year's Resolutions, and by then were more than broke because the bills from Christmas were probably coming due. He also factored in that the weather tends to be real stinky this time of year, too.

Voila, he published a report, and is getting all kinds of attention, while I sit at home scratching my head and wondering why I never get around to doing something like that.

Thus, here I am posting away whatever random thoughts pop into my head. If Andy Warhol said we all get 15 minutes of fame, I'm going to get my money's worth. Welcome to my Blog, a very random and assorted collection of my thoughts for your perusal and entertainment.
