I haven't gotten much done , but it's not important. Not much on my mind lately. Today was a total loss, but so it goes.

Today was a complete loss, but oh well. I don't care. So it goes. Nothing going on , but shrug. Not much on my mind these days. Such is life.

My mind is like a void, not that it matters. I've more or less been doing nothing to speak of. I've just been sitting around not getting anything done, but so it goes. Not much on my mind worth mentioning. I've just been letting everything happen without me lately, but it's not important.

I've basically been doing nothing to speak of. Basically nothing seems worth thinking about. I feel like a void, but that's how it is. I've just been hanging out doing nothing.

... and my mind is like Spam – pink and mushy and in a hard protective casing. It's not like that other kind of Spam when I have a computer script post nonsense comments on blogs to sneak in a link to my website in the signature...

My mind is like a fog, not that it matters. I just don't have much to say these days. That's how it is. I haven't been up to anything recently.

Wish granted (possibly). The ex-CEO of RJR who was willing to tell Congress that cigarettes are not addictive, who addicted more on credit cards at AmEx and looted 70-some billion from pensioners at IBM is now CEO of Carlyle who is buying an extended care chain (old folks home). Is soylent grey next?

David D.

Clearly, the essay was just meant as a joke, but I don't really get the point.

The "reporter with no credibility" is Cambridge Graduate Nicholas Wade, science reporter for the New York Times, and the editor of Science Times from 1990 to 1996. Before that, he had been deputy editor of the highly respected science journal, Nature and a reporter for Science Magazine. (See: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9C0CE7DB1E39F93BA2575AC0A966958260).

According to his New York Times article, (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/02/science/02drug.html?ex=1183521600&en=7ed5e2c8433a2d9b&ei=5070), The "researcher who has no credibility" was actually a team of researchers led by David Sinclair of the Harvard Medical School and by Rafael de Cabo of the National Institute on Aging.

According to his bio, "Dr. Sinclair has received several awards and honors for his research, including The Thomson Prize for first place in undergraduate studies, a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Award (1996-1999), and a Special Fellowship from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (1999 - 2002). Sinclair was a Ludwig Scholar (2000-2002), a Harvard-Armenise Fellow (2000-2003), an American Association for Aging Research (AFAR) Fellow (2002), and is currently a New Scholar of the Ellison Medical Foundation (2001-present)." (This seems to predate his current position.) (See: http://ichal05.longevity-international.com/cms/details.asp?NewsID=145).

And according to the NIH Web site, Dr. de Cabo's Scientific Awards include CERA Visiting professor (The Centre for Education and Research on Ageing), University of Sydney and Concord Hospital. Sydney. Australia; The American Aging Association Postdoctoral 2001, Paul E. Glenn Award for Meritorious Research; Young Scientist Award presented at the 26th conference of the Shock Society; and The American Aging Association Postdoctoral 2003, Paul E. Glenn runner up Award for Meritorious Research. (See: http://www.grc.nia.nih.gov/branches/leg/cvs/rdecabo.htm).

I think there are plenty of legitimate criticisms of resveratrol advocacy and, and some of them are touched upon in the essay. But accusing the reporter and the researchers of having "no credibility" is obviously not a legitimate criticism in this case.

I love Scott Adams. I read Dilbert every single day, and most months I never read a single other comic strip even once. But let me suggest that on this particular issue--as he points out himself in the last sentence of the essay--Adams is the one who has no credibility.

Hmm… Scott’s life plus 30 years? Perhaps by that time Automation with human level intelligence will have created such massive wealth that paying for the immortals will not be an issue.

Turns out, I was high. Sorry

Dalebert

That stuff is expensive, but then I realized I'm paying $230 a month for health insurance. If you do a cost/benefit analysis, it makes total sense. I can really stock up on the stuff and I won't need health insurance anymore anyway!

Thanx Scott!

Were you high when you wrote this post, or am I high right now?
