Painkillers are getting in the way though. Difficult to concentrate on much of anything so here are a couple of the distractions I’ve stumbled across so far today.
The Glass Delusion – A once-common delusion which seems to have faded over the past few centuries whereby sufferers imagined themselves to be composed of glass and therefore exceptionally fragile.

The Principles Of The American Cargo Cult – Good reading for anyone interested in critical thinking or the lack thereof in the general populace.
ID And Creationism In The UK – The Telegraph are saying less than 50% of UK residents believe evolution is sufficient to explain the “complex structures of some living things”. The report seems unsound, the figures are shoddy but what do you expect from the Telegraph?
