Long before there were blogs there were plain old nerds with websites... From 2001-2004 I used to occasionally write my observations of the bizarre world around me on a page of my site called "For No Good Reason". It's about time there was an encore...

Oh, Dwight…  You have no idea.  If that’s what’s up then the battle scene is most definitely coming.

Bonus of insomnia…the Super Moon tonight is amazing.

This is right outside a brewery.  My response to this was, “Can I drink my beer first?”

Very cool to see this happening on North Broad…

Poor Trisha

While attempting to connect my PC to my wireless access point the other day I came across this interestingly-named SSID in my scan for wireless networks.  This is for real, folks…  Now every time I see someone in the neighborhood with a large ass I have the urge to go up to her and say, “Excuse me, but by any chance are you Trisha?”

Somebody tell me how the hell to get a grant to do one of these bizarre studies because I’m wasting my time slaving to the grind…  Imagine spending all that time and money to become a neuroscientist and then spending your days cockblocking male fruit flies and then to add insult to injury sticking the blue-balled fruit flies with decapitated female fruit flies.

There is one fatal flaw in this experiment, however.  The reporter writes:

"Next, the researchers checked to see whether it was lack of sex or the actual rejection that made the flies likelier to drink. For that test, researchers put virgin males in with decapitated females, so they would experience neither rejection nor copulation."

For this to have been a valid test they are making the assumption that the males find it unacceptable to mate with the females “just because they’ve been decapitated”.  I think it is a majorly flawed assumption.
