Shake and Bake stated "These are the very same people that feed Scott all of his Iraq news..."

Yes, some people get their news from sources other than Fox. Some people like to have a news source that doesn't have it's head directly up the Bush Administrations' ass.

Scott, I think you should read Freakonomics, by Stephen D Levitt and Steven J Dubner. They have a fascinating chapter on whether or not your name can decide your fate.

Dom

Ooh I like the chance to be able to talk about me in one of your posts.

My name means 'little lion in lion valley on a Sunday'

It really does.

I have big curly hair, I like cats and I also like Sundays and the countryside.

felize

Scott, you're cheating - you had a blog on this already!

Rudolph Randolph

I have agreed with everything you have EVER written or said, until this day. Arbitrary associations can eat my moustache. WAIDAMINIT that's exactly what A.A. Milnes used to say!

md05

My last name is Douglas, which is ye olde speake for "black water". My Guinness addiction started before I found that out. Spooky.

Mike

My last name starts with "J" and I saw a bluejay once. Spooky.

dave

Andy Watt

No. No more than it rains when people carry umbrellas!

Stoppit you Simian Choreographer! Next you'll be telling us your weekly meetings with Madame Zaza have suggested that your syndication only came about because of the rings around uranus.....

My name in Hindi means shy. "Elusive loner" could have been more appropriate, for my nature.

My sis' name means "red" or "prosperous". She gets red in sun, and is of the "fat and prosperous" type.

I think I've seen too many people who confirm to this theory. Also, sometimes some names without direct meaning appears to associate with a nature. eg, Paul may be talkative (more open than he could be in his circumstances - should not compare to others from different circumstances) and James may be calm and confident.

There are exceptions, of course. But I think just 20% people confirming to this can prove the theory of "more likely"

T.G.

My name begins with F, thankfully in my country qualifications where numeric, and you know what? I do really enjoy to F***.
Hehe, well quite a time ago I did read an article about an study that showed that bankers ranked the most ignorant persons among professions that require a minimun qualification, but in the last years I am absolutely sure that journalists have taken a considerable lead.

Tatter

Last name Dandy. I am irritatingly happy all the time.
Which can be a bummer at funerals

In the UK, if your last name is Baker it is twice as likely that your job is a baker. Weird, uh?

Erik

I have a long german last name...I'm a nerd who plans to be a scientist.

Definitely.

BobNL

Wow. That's striking.
You know, there are also studies that show that the the position of the stars and planets at the exact time of your birth predict important parts of your destiny and it also marks down the main aspects of your character.
Recently it was published that over 50% of these predictions are actually right. It is amazing.
