In an effort to clean out my bookmarks here are some non gun related links I thought were worth saving for one reason or a'tother.
I read a rather interesting post about a movie called The Barbarian Invasions & a RN losing her father to cancer. I seem to recall catching part of The Barbarian Invasions a few years back but can't recall too much about it, but none the less the post is worth a read. On a semi related note I also found some neat pics of anatomic models imposed on real people. I found both the afore linked posts at Volume 3, Number 33 of Grand Rounds (which is basically a medical blog carnival). May 6th through 12th is a national week to recognize RN's. On yet another medical related note, I was pointed to this page which tells about the upcoming (June 14-21) 30th annual medical professional assistants week, in case you know one. & because animals need love too I noticed that National Veterinary Technicians Week occurs October 15 through 21rst - just in case ya need to mark your calender.
An artificial butter flavoring is suspected in making some folks sick. When I'd hit the movies a bit more frequently I'd notice that the popcorn gave me a mild headache. Guess there was something to that after all.

Some folks are saying that ceiling height effects your thought processes.
Via Annika, the met has a neat zoom function on their website. Annika links to The Abduction of the Sabine Women by Poussin in her post so to be different I offer you Chagall's The Lovers.
& speaking - er, typing of art in Beirut some racy art is being shown in an attempt to change attitudes in the culture.
My pal Anachronista has a post up on -er, modern(?) gadgets. There have been so many occasions that I wanted to tell time while flinging mini projectiles at folks, & thanks to her post I now have a solution. & Anachronista has posted a link to a rather lengthy podcast of medieval music. My old music history teacher would be ashamed that I didn't' recognize all the styles.
There's a piece up at Reason that offers some speculation about Hollywood ignoring films that deal directly with communism. & speaking of political motivations, looks like there could be another bit of quasi-scandal in the University of Colorado.
In Greece they've found a bit of cloth that they think is around 2,700 years old. & I thought I was bad about keeping jeans long past their shelf life.
& how could I not send some love out to my sisters who wear the g-string for a good cause? Dancers For Democracy. Y'all.
& just when you thought it was safe to open go on the internet, "The new regulators of political speech are Sergey Brin, Rupert Murdoch and Mark Zuckerberg -the chieftains of YouTube, MySpace and Facebook, respectively."Posted by Publicola at May 17, 2007 04:02 PM | TrackBack
