Tom Doesn't Like My Blog

Posted 09-15-2008 at 11:26 AM by MathGuy

According to this blog posting, this is not one of Tom's favorite blogs. Wow. I guess I really need to spice things up a bit.

The Mentalist

Posted 09-08-2008 at 10:06 AM by MathGuy

I saw an ad for a new show starting this fall, "The Mentalist". It's about a "psychic detective" who isn't really isn't psychic. He just uses finely honed observational skills to pretend that he is.

I liked this show the first time I saw it, when it was called "Psych".

Gas Prices Got You Down? Buy a Geo Metro!

Gas Prices Drive Geos from Clunkers to Chic

I can understand wanting to get better gas...

The Nudity Cult

Posted 08-20-2008 at 04:04 PM by MathGuy

First, I highly recommend the SI Vault at SI.com, which has an archive of every SI article ever published. That being said, I found the following article, and was intrigued by what I read:

The Nudity Cult, by Liz Smith
July 16, 1965
"Six months after the topless-swimsuit brouhaha, bare skin—or styling that gives the illusion thereof—is the thing to wear under the sun. Where do we go from here?"

Feel free to read the article if you wish. That's not...
