It’s Baaack, I have scoured every corner of cyberspace, selflessly and tirelessly in a relentless, never ending search for that which enlightens on the subjects of mind, soul, and body and then I got tired and took a nap. Anyway, here is the fruits of my labor, especially for you, the reader, I present the best of the Internet-
The Situationist examines an intriguing study that shows we carry our racial biases with us into the virtual world, where we react differently to avatars of different races. I am always tempted to go for the dark skin with the extraordinarily large afro and goatee, I wonder what exactly does that say about me? Maybe that I am just your typical, everyday, self-hating, politically correct white male.
By the way, I apologize for the lengthy wait wou had to load this page. My upspike in traffic has just been unbelievable. I am at a loss for what I can possibly do with these droves and droves of new fans, but I will note The Situationist is on a roll as they share a way to mess with the mind to get people to do what you want them to, with the simple, age old ”everyone else is doing it” line.
At Mental Health Notes, Airdrie Miller, a Vancouver, Canada blogger has a guest post in which she shares her experience with depression, noting that it just doesn’t seem to matter how many cookies you bake, sometimes that will never fix the problem. Personal stories are something I am a sucker for, likely because it always hits so close to home.
At Musings of a Distractible Mind, Dr. Rob draws on his wealth of experience as a public health service to let all you frustrated patients out there know exactly how to exasperate and annoy your own doctor, with a list that rings oh, so true, brief as my career has been.
Disappearing John, RN shares a tongue in cheek look at why its great to be a Man. I’m not all that comfortable with how the offspring bit is supposed to mean I’m happier, or even speak all that well of my gender, but I think men and women might get a chuckle or two out of the post.
Finally, to top it all off I present this stirring musical number by the Laryngospasms, an A Capella group of nurse anesthetists, or CRNAs, that obviously have tooo much time on their hands.
With that I bid farewell. Please remember to breathe. I’ll see ya next time.
